Angelina Jolie In Atelier Versace – ‘Maleficent’ Private Reception

Angelina Jolie In Atelier Versace - 'Maleficent' Private ReceptionAlong with Elle Fanning, Angelina Jolie also swept into a private reception for ‘Maleficent’ on Wednesday (May 8), where costumes and props from the Disney movie were exhibited at Kensington Palace in London, England in support of the Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Rather expectedly, the stunning actress was outfitted in black. But her custom-made Atelier Versace was no ordinary black dress. This one looked as good coming and going with a plunging V-shape that was mirrored in the front and back.

Dripping with Swarovski crystals, the fully embroidered, glittering gown had a lovely, languid and stylishly sinister appeal—right down to the sheer embellished sleeves that extended over the hands in a V shape and the attached cape that draped delicately over the shoulders.

The dress needed few accessories, so Angelina graciously complied, adding only a delicate earring and a sleek updo to complete the dramatic effect.

    Again I love this goes with the theme of her character and even though black, it’s far from being a snooze. Stunning beading and draping. She looks flawless.

      No need for me to write a comment. I totally agree with what you said.

      I agree as well. Gorgeous!

    Yes it’s black and a similar style to what she normally wears but it’s a gorgeous dress. Dramatic, elegant and sexy. She is so beautiful.

    • Christine May 9, 2014 at 00:29 #

      Agreed. She looks beautiful

  3. Yeliz May 8, 2014 at 20:49 #

    Wow, this is one of the most event appropriate looks I’ve ever seen. This gown could’ve also been from the movie. The fit of the sheer sleeves could’ve been better but she still blew me away with her elegance. J’adore.

    • dee May 8, 2014 at 20:58 #

      I agree on the fit of the sleeves.

  4. Joy May 8, 2014 at 20:53 #

    What’s with the pooling fabric in the sleeves? Is it too big?

    It is a gorgeous dress! And right in Angelina’s comfort zone.

    • justme May 8, 2014 at 21:23 #

      Yes, the top half of the dress is too big for Angelina.
      But she looks gorgeous otherwise.

  5. Noemi May 8, 2014 at 21:27 #

    There’s something I don’t like, maybe there’s too much fabric on the sleeves, but she looks beautiful.

  6. Ann May 8, 2014 at 21:35 #

    I can’t stop staring at the picture on the right. She is too stunning.

    The dress is flawless as well, very fitting for the movie.

    She wears a gown like this like a Queen. And with her man by her side – they takes my breathe away! If you see pictures all around her, the gown seems a perfect fit for her!

    • cherrysoftness May 9, 2014 at 02:25 #

      I agree, she’s like a painting in the photos, she’s unbearably beautiful. It’s just, it’s no exaggeration, she is radiant in this. She does seem like a queen.

  8. Valissa May 8, 2014 at 22:19 #

    The only thing I don’t like are the structured shoulders. They don’t go with the fluidity of the dress. Otherwise this is a gorgeous look!
    Ange looks amazing!

  9. CreoleLady May 8, 2014 at 22:28 #

    Those shoulders and sleeves, not feeling this. The dress neither fits nor flatters imo. Stamps out my flickering hopes. Maleficent indeed.

  10. tiptoe May 8, 2014 at 22:35 #

    With a gorgeous face like that, she can wear a black garbage bag for all i care, that face will stand out! She’s so beautiful! Sigh….

  11. TL May 9, 2014 at 00:44 #

    Same old black but she still looks simply gorgeous

  12. Quinn May 9, 2014 at 01:08 #

    That face! She can wear anything and still looks drop dead gorgeous. Flawless!

  13. jjane May 9, 2014 at 02:11 #

    flawless

  14. tsam May 9, 2014 at 03:11 #

    Gorgeous! Here I thought she channels her Maleficent character with that Versace gown♡

  15. Pedro May 9, 2014 at 03:22 #

    Flawless face, as always.

    The dress is gorgeous but i’m so over all these black dresses

  16. sree May 9, 2014 at 06:03 #

    Super gorgeous! Angelina does black the best in Hollywood.

  17. Stel May 9, 2014 at 06:09 #

    Breathtaking! God!!

  18. rush May 9, 2014 at 09:31 #

    wowwwwwwWWW …

  19. Anna May 9, 2014 at 09:59 #

    Isn’t that dress very similiar to her Elie Saab at the Oscars, just in black? The sparkling details on her shoulders remind me of the Oscardesign, as well as the overall fitting – only differing in the neckline. Make-Up and earings seem to be just the same as at the Oscars.

    • Sophy May 9, 2014 at 13:24 #

      She always wears the same dress – in black or beige or more black or more beige!!!!

  20. amy May 9, 2014 at 11:19 #

    gorgeous dress

  21. Danielle May 9, 2014 at 13:40 #

    Gorgeous!

  22. Prudence May 9, 2014 at 15:07 #

    The dress would have looked even better without sleeves in my opinion, especially since they seem to be baggy on her arms.

  23. Stephanie @ Whole Health Dork May 9, 2014 at 18:47 #

    Ugh. Enough with the black already. I love black myself, but seriously? With the access to the amazing clothes she has? Enough!

  24. Raul Brammin May 23, 2014 at 11:23 #
