I’m likely to moan when Angelina Jolie wears another black dress, but that feeling usually doesn’t last for long because black is her thing, and the outcome is usually sensational.
Angelina’s red carpet evolution has seen her go from goth to glamour, and during this period she became the ultimate Versace vixen.
Here is a rundown of her her iconic moments in black since 2010.
‘Salt’ Japan Premiere in Versace (2010)
This Versace dress may have been worn 10 years ago, but it’s such a classic that Angelina could still wear it today. The slit is very high, but found the sexiest part of this look to be the open back.
I selected this look because it’s likely to be the last time we will ever see the actress in a micro mini dress.
At the time I wasn’t that blown away by this Versace dress, because I’m always yearning for more. But there is no denying just how sexy this black velvet number is with the extra long opera gloves.
This truly magical. Simple, elegant, and nothing but Angelina’s true beauty shining through. I don’t even see Brad in this picture.
Seven days later…this iconic moment happened. Angelina Jolie has always had a reputation of being a vixen, so when you take in just how much fabric there was in this skirt, I kinda understand why she forced the leg here. She wanted to ensure the look was on brand. Both for herself and Donatella.
If I was numbering these looks rather than putting them in date order, this would be my number 1. The black strapless Atelier Versace dress looked like leather, but was composed entirely of rubberized silk. Some likened the look to a trash bag, but as the saying goes, “she could make a trash bag look good,” and she did.
At the time this LBD didn’t get a lot of love because the focus was mostly on her boobs, but you can’t deny that this look stayed very true to her style; sexy, simple and elegant.
At first you want to scream, “boring”, but I was swept away by the old Hollywood glam of this look. Admittedly, the feathers saved this from being a total snooze.
This would be my second favourite. It’s spellbinding. I could spend hours trying to figure out why this look draws me in like a moth to a flame, as I’m the girl who loves sparkle, modernity and bright colours.
You may be surprised by this inclusion, but that corset and the sheer elements still send a shiver down my spine. I adore this dress.
For the first film I didn’t feel that Angelina was trying to embody her character Maleficent. But for the second film it seemed that she was more on board with themed looks that celebrated the movie in a more than just the colour palette.
