In or Out: Angelia Jolie in L’Agence

Posted on May 31, 2012

Why the hell does Angelina Jolie always dress like she’s at a funeral?


Angelina Jolie attends screening of her new film “In the Land of Blood and Honey” at the Foreign Commonwealth Office in London. Angelina Jolie wore a L’Agence long sleeve wrap dress from the Fall/Winter 2012 Collection.

Jeez, we realize her movie’s not exactly a romp, but this outfit doesn’t say “Thank you for coming to see my movie” so much as it says “I’m so sorry for your loss.” It doesn’t help that she’s relatively jewelry-free (this thing is screaming for a necklace) or that the dress looks to be at least a size too large for her. You can take a simple dress like this and make it chic and attention-getting with the right choices, but there’s a reason we coined the term “pulling a Jolie.” Girl just doesn’t think she needs to put the effort in.

But we are prepared to be told we’re being too harsh. We’ll laugh impolitely behind our hands while you do so, like bitchy ladies in waiting, but you would expect no less from us.

IN! She’s gorgeous, you bitches.


OUT! I put more effort in to get to work today.

    Irrational hate
    okay I’ll be nice. Outfit is awful, her hair looks good, but she’s still out.

    • rest your weary head against my exposed

  • Sara__B

    OUT. She IS gorgeous, but she’s also dull and predictable.

    • Alisa Rivera

      Dull and predictable, exactly.

    • Louise Bryan

      Sad looking, especially for such a beautiful woman.  OUT

  • EEKstl

    OUT.  Just not working.  Put in some effort, girl!  And, I know it’s besides the point but her legs look like matchsticks.  Yikes.

  • theblondette

    Gotta say, that would be the SEXIEST funeral. She’s kind of a Black Widow (the murdering-husband kind, not the superhero kind) here, no? “Hey prospective hubby no. 2/3/4, after you wipe your eyes on my voluminous sleeves, rest your weary head against my exposed cleavage.”

    • This, exactly.  And just to be clear, also out.  I’d cheerfully wear that dress myself (after pinning the neckline up to a safe zone) but I’m not a celebrity who scores free clothing.

    •  EXACTLY…the dress says “funeral” mostly…but the neckline adds:  “mistress or merry widow” to the mix.    Kind of “I’m sad and drab….BUT LOOK AT MY TITS!”

    • SojournerYouth

       Yeah.  It’s a disconcerting dress choice to wear for this event because it is too big and wrinkled, and also because the cut is so severe, and yet totally boobtastic.  It’s a schizo dress made to be accessorized by a Lucrezia Borgia poison ring.

  • Clueless_Jock

    The dress is a too droopy.

    • Cathy S

       Yes. Too droopy. That’s exactly the word I was looking for.

  • Laurie Bergman

    Too big, too rumpled, too drab, and the Loub peeptoes are too flirty for such sad sackery. OUT.

  • I like it.  I think her look is (usually) very effortless and that her features speak such volumes that she really doesn’t need a lot of stuff.  This look likes a bit vintage and a bit French chic IMO.  I think when she does try too hard it just doesn’t suit her at all as a person….ref: the great right leg disaster of aught 12.

    • mountainFashionista

       I completely agree with your general assessment of her style!  However, this dress is too big for her, and too heavy for late May.

      •  It’s just silk, is it not?  I do agree it’s a tad on the large size but then most things are on her…she needs a sandwich.

        • mountainFashionista

          I think the fabric is light, but the effect is heavy… if that makes sense…?  It’s from a fall/winter collection, which probably influenced my opinion somewhat!

  • VeryClaire

    Out, it doesn’t appear to fit her.

  • Noshmek Snagtoof

    Just because you can some times get away with grabbing your boyfriend’s silk bathrobe, throwing on some pumps, and calling it a day doesn’t mean you should.  OUT.

  • OUT – bathrobes are not public attire. 

    • SouthernGirlRena

      That is what I was thinking.  To me, it doesn’t say funeral as much as just out of the shower and putting her make-up on. 

  • DaringMiss

    If the neckline were a little more snug, I would say she was copying our royal Cathy Cambridge!

  • Spreecord

    I loathe Angelina Jolie with the white-hot intensity of a thousand burning suns, so she gets an OUT from me no matter what she wears.

    The fact that bitch is totally biting Cathy Cambridge’s hair is also pissing me off.

    • makeityourself

      That’s how I feel about Gwyneth. The Jolie, however, can do no wrong in my eyes. I will happily declare this an IN because she does not care what you, or I, or the great and powerful TLo think. And I love that about her.

      • agent_86

        After reading all of these, I thought I was the only la Jolie lover (and Gwyneth hater)! I also vote this IN, just because I can. 

        And now I will go watch Girl, Interrupted for the millionth time and bask in her awesomeness.

        • Spreecord

           I’m also a diehard Gwyneth hater. And, for reasons I can’t quite formulate, Morgan Fairchild.

      • agent_86

        After reading all of these, I thought I was the only la Jolie lover (and Gwyneth hater)! I also vote this IN, just because I can. 

        And now I will go watch Girl, Interrupted for the millionth time and bask in her awesomeness.

      • bluefish

        I wouldn’t be so sure that Jolie doesn’t care what the public thinks of her.  I think she tries hard, really hard, much of the time to give an impression of herself that is pure theater.  She’s good at that and she needs that armour as the official Most Famous and Beautiful Woman in the World, etc.  I admire her in many ways, just as she expects me to, but find that she leaves me cold–on and off the screen.  The thing I find most interesting about her is that she’s a pilot.

        • makeityourself

          Loved that Vogue editorial spread of her from a few years ago, particularly the shot Annie Liebowitz took over Angelina’s shoulder while she was piloting her small plane and wearing a white suit.
          Sent from Anne’s iPhone, so if there are crazy misspelled words, you will know why.

  • Jennifer Hofstetter

    Top is shaped weird, and her hair looks limp. OUT.

    • mountainFashionista


      I wish I could get my hair to be this limp!

  • Jessica O’Connell

    Too little effort and too little jewelery, and too big of a dress. It looks like she could fit one of her kids in that top with her! Even if I liked her, I would declare this one a definitive OUT. Way to ruin a good dress, Angelina.

  • OUT. Don’t mind the dress, it’s the wrinkles I can’t stand (or the politician but let’s leave him out of this…….)

  • OUT. This is so boring that I’m afraid I’ll fall asleep before finishing this commenzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…………..

  • l3icest3r

    “Why the hell does Angelina Jolie always dress like she’s at a funeral?” One that took place in 1979, too. Holy smokes, is that a Halston? 

    • guestela

       Seriously. This makes me think of my mother from my 70s childhood. (Including the too-baggy, too-low neckline.)

      • l3icest3r

        Mine too! I feel like if I sniffed this picture there’d be a whiff of Shalimar and cigarette smoke.  🙂

  • Lisa Salmon

    You are not being too harsh.  At all.

  • benjamin478

    IN. I know I’m only contributing to her lack of effort, but from what I can see, she really doesn’t need to put effort in to get an IN (even though it’s wasted potential and I really really wish she would).

  • Sarah Aronson

    Too big. Too boring. OUT.

  • Zzzzzzzzzz… out.

  • IN, even though it’s wrinkled.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    My first thought was…”she’s preggers again”…why that popped into my head I have no earthy idea…that being said, its a frumpy, dumpy, sad looking dress, funereal is the exact term for it…OUT

  • frannyprof

    O to the UT

  • ew. too skinny. don’t care about anything else. 

  • Out. Meh. You know how Sean Young went around dressed like Catwoman for a while? Same thing, but with Morticia.

  • holdmewhileimnaked

    maybe she thinks she has to dress dirt-down in order to be taken seriously?

    • girliecue

      That would make make really sad if she did. But you may have hit the mark dead on. I know too many beautiful, sexy  women who hide it so they’ll be taken seriously at their jobs.

    • Qitkat

      Fine, but it still needs to fit properly; this dress is one dropped tomato away from the entire salad spilling from the bowl. 

  • mjude

    out but she does look healthy?

  • sunandmoon24

    Going against the grain, I’m going to vote in.
    I think she looks great here…almost like a character: Angelina Jolie, namely 🙂

  • Well if I knew I was going to have to spend time with William Hague (the man in the top photo, he was the Conservative party leader for a time), I’d probably dress like I was going to a funeral too. Or fake my own, whichever really.

    OUT – She could have at least worn a big hat with a veil, you know?

  • Amy

    It’s that whole “please take me seriously..I’m such a professional humanitarian style”only she ended up looking sloppy with a little side boob flashing. OUT.

    • Wellworn

      Ha!  I wrote something similar just now before I read your comment, but yours is an improvement with the sloopy side boob imagery. 

      • Amy

        Thanks. The sloppy boobs will get ya every time!

  • Melissa Brogan

    She has the ability to make the dress work, but she didn’t try at all. And it’s wrinkly. OUT.

  • merciblahblah


  • marilyn

    Maybe she wears black because she is bummed out about having to get married because of her kids.  If she actually gets married, I am sure it will be very private and without any notice.  I wonder if this will be a shotgun wedding with the gun being pointed at her head.    In the meantime, widow’s weeds.

  • Out. She’s the most boring dresser in the history of baggy sack dresses.

  • Beth G

    Out.  BUt imagine that dress on Cathy Cambridge in the correct size….

  • I need you two to start selling Precious Unborn Fawn t-shirts so I can buy one and wear it with pride. Pretty Please??? Also, La Jolie is totally phoning it in, which is normative I suppose. Mehs all around.

    • 3rdsister

       Great idea but I bet “Bitter Kitten” would sell better.

      •  Why not have both? 😉 They’d sell like hotcakes (or bagels if you prefer) if you ask me!

  • girliecue

    I like Angelina Jolie, but her incessant refusal to glam it up causes me to weep like… like I was at a funeral. Don’t waste your beauty, missy. It pisses the rest of us off.

  • SpcilK

    Her looks screams, I don’t give a …. It would be nice if a steamer or iron was included within her prep time. Add some make-up, a hairstylist, and accessories and we she becomes glamorous in an instant! (Just say’n)

  • msftmargarita

    Out. The top of the dress is way too big on her. 

  • AlexisPayne

    Love her, but this is too big on her, OUT.
    I’m thinking she would look good in a lot of the dresses Cathy Cambridge wears.

  • LuisaNL

    OUT! The dress is too big and the length is awkward, makes her legs looks extra skinny and old ladyish. A spot more make up wouldn’t hurt either. Angie, why do you keep phoning it in?!

  • I think she’zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz Oh sorry I fell asleep because her ensemble is so boring. OUT.

  • This is insulting. As long as you are milking your celebrity for your causes, you could at least look like a celebrity. Do something with the hair and wear a dress that is not one level above a sheet.

  • guestela

    Out. Looks like something my mother wore decades ago.

  • HobbitGirl

    With people that beautiful, though, I wonder whether it’s a case of “not putting the effort in,” or intentionally toning it down to keep from stunning the world into stupor by the power of their looks.

  • OUT.  The dress fits like shit.  

  • trisker

    I think she looks as if she put on a basic black dress.  I don’t get the decolletage, though, shaking hands with an MP or something.  I’d say IN.

  • CassieLee22

    OUT the thing is falling off of her, also just because 

  • jw_ny

    OUT…won’t defend her ’cause I really don’t want to be the object of TLo’s snickering.  😉

    It is dull.  It’s probably appropriate for the venue since it looks like quite the conservative place (so does he), but gosh is it dull…


  • OUT. Bad hair, too.

  • LesYeuxHiboux

    That’s a lot of tit for a funeral.

    The dress is too big and bathroby, but I really like the idea of it. Hair is pretty, makeup perhaps a little too underdone (though it is daytime and she looks very pretty)…ehhhhhhhhhhhh IN, because I don’t hate her and she doesn’t look bad.

  • It’s the whole “I’m a serious director here so damn it take me seriously” dress.  The same as Nicole Kidman wearing a fake nose or Charlize Theron gaining weight to play an “ugly” character to be taken as a serious actress.

    I find her more interesting when she actually does dress like Morticia (always thought Morticia has great style), like her 99 Oscar dress or the Black Leather Dress.  But I guess she’s trying to be low-key now that she wants to be more mainstream/mother/director/humanitarian.   

  • Out..I love her, think she has made tremendous strides from the lost girl she was but she cannot dress herself to save her life most times. 

    Hair does look good though..

  • Judy_S

    OUT. Funeral indeed.

  • Joyce VG

    OUT!  What a joy it is to vote her out if only momentarily.

  • kelsita421

    out. give me a break.

  • butterflysunita

    OUT.  Dress is ugly, too big and also wrinkled.  And yes, Angelina, try to look like a serious director all you want.  None of us buy it after Leg Gate at the Academy Awards.

  • Le_Sigh

    OUT.  It could be effortlessly chic, but Catherine Denuve she is not.   Congratulations for taking a shower and wearing clean clothes honey.  Wake me up when you decide to pull another Leg Gate. 

  • DinaSews


  • karena10

    Out.  Even if the dress fit well, it would be out.  A designer dress by itself is not enough, it needs accessories and styling to make it work.

  • amber_julene

    To be fair, this would be hot and maybe a tad slutty at a funeral–so really spicy for that venue.  Still.  Out.

  • nancylee61

    I think she wears her clothes so loose so we can’t tell she is wasting away, with arms that look like those of a 6 year old. Out. Boring and plain.

  • OUT! Boring and sad. It seems like she tries to get by on her natural beauty, but girlfriend needs to step it up!

  • bailey debruynkops


  • charlotte

    Angie, your funeral bathrobe needs ironing!

  • Trying to be taken seriously? i.e. I am no longer a semi-incestuous psycho slut?

    • TLo, this doesn’t seem like the kind of comment that should be on your site.  Calling a woman a “slut”?!

  • Anna Tree


  • kimmeister

    I’m going to go against the flow and give her an in.  She’s certainly not breathtaking in this look, but I don’t think she looks bad.

  • Judy_J

    That neckline shows a bit too much skin for a funeral, unless you are a merry widow.  I’m not feeling the love.  OUT.

  • Out! Just no.

  • NurseEllen

    Out.  Her clothing choices (sorry, I cannot call this “fashion”) are awful most of the time, and this is no exception.  The movie may say “blood and honey” but her look says “boredom and despair”.

  • bittykitty

    it looks like she either slept in that dress, or took a too-long nap after getting her hair done and grabbed the wrong dress in the mad dash to be on time.

  • AWS

    She’s gorgeous you bitches!


  • out.  

  • OUT.

  • margaret meyers

    Sexy Mormon Widow.  no.

  • julnyes

    Ah well, she is a beautiful woman and her hair looks fantastic, but the dress is baggy and depressing… I love Jolie, but it saddens me to see her wasting all her fierce potential.

    • Wellworn

      That is so true.  I don’t love her, but she is fierce potential wasted.

      • carolynmo

        Well said. While being superbly turned out evidently isn’t important to her, she’s chosen to be in a professional that relies on the visual. Naughty superstar!

  • Mrs

    that profile of her is one of the most flattering pictures of her I’ve seen in quite a while

  • reddhouston

    out…sad looking and it doesn’t fit well.

  • afabulous50

    All my sphincter muscles contract at the sight of her…so I can’t be unbiased.  I hate her….OUT

  • I love her, I really do, but I think this could have been… more.  You’re a movie star!  Don’t let us forget it. 

    And I wish I could say that I put in more effort to get to work today, but since I’m currently unemployed, I’m still in my PJs.  So she still put in more effort than I did.  OUT nonetheless, sorry hun.

  • fringebenefit

    OUT…as if she had to rustle through a bag of somebody else’s clothes headed to the Goodwill to find something quick to wear

  • “Your massage table is ready for you.”


  • Love her, but wrinkles and unflattering fit on the dress (that dress should be burned if it’s unflattering on her!) compel me to say OUT

    • Wow-just scrolled down and saw all the ‘bathrobe’ comments-Word. 

  • warontara

    I give it a “meh” overall, but since that’s not an option- lowercase out, because I don’t reward boring fashion lol. I love her, but fashion isn’t her thing.

  • crash1212

    OUT. Enough already.

  • rissa42210

    OUT.  She’s beautiful, but this 33 gallon black plastic trash bag is not hot.

  • Out. I love her and defend many of her sartorial choices, but this is just awful. She should have gone with a chic pantsuit. 

  • DCSheehan

    In. It works.

  • I am all for natural, minimal beauty but Ange’s done this far too long. OUT

  • IN! IN! Always IN!  I think she dressed appropriately and respectfully for the tone of the movie.

  • Jessica Goldstein

    I vote OUT for this one, too. Two sizes smaller, two inches off the hem, add a simple but bold necklace and it would be staying in her comfort zone but still chic. As is, it just looks unfinished and unplanned. 

  • ChaquitaPhilly

    After that Elizabeth Banks photo, Angelina looks wonderful!

  • altalinda

    Out.  A little less cleavage and more jewelry and color.

  • jessicasac

    Out. What’s wrong with her hair lately? It always looks so thin and lifeless, is she balding? This drew makes her looks like she is missing a boob, the fabric just falls flat.

    • Wellworn

      Hair loss can happen when one doesn’t have proper nutrition. 

  • Totally out — looks like a hair/makeup robe.

  • WOMAN! You are rich! You can afford a tailor, some gorgeous baubles and killah shoes. Hell, you wouldn’t even have to buy the baubles and shoes. Designers would cry salty tears of gratitude just to deck you out, honey!

    OUT. There’s no reason she can’t do better. Be French for God’s sake, Angelina.

  • O-U-T OUT!

  • Out, the hate isn’t irrational, it’s awful but then imnsho so is she.

  • svtl

    IN.. for being elegant without jewellery, much effort or pretentious dresses. 

  • gabbilevy

    Out. Wrinkly satin bathrobe.

  • megohd

    She looks like a wax figurine of Cathy Cambridge on a bad day. 

  • Sophie Collier

    It does appear to be a size too big.  Coulda been a chic little number, but yeah, pretty plain and funereal.  I do like the dress though.  Simple classic style.

  • It’s OUT. And for some reason, I just can’t stand her. 

  • Wellworn

    Out.  But I have a hard time being objective with my utter dislike of her.  I think she has been campaigning for years to have a mother Teresa image so we can forget what a homewrecker and freak she used to be (not just with the Pitt marriage).  It’s so boring.  I might like her better if she was still wrecking marriages and wearing vials of blood around her neck.  At least she would be interesting.  It’s like with the post you did on Kate Winslet, she isn’t her former self, and has turned into something so false.  This is her, dressing the part of a “serious humanitarian who doesn’t have time for fashion”.  FAKE FAKE FAKE FAKE

    •  Well, to be fair, she did do a lot of actual humanitarian work.  Whatever the motive, at least she did them, and that is far better than most of her Hollywood colleagues. 

      As for the “homewrecker” part, Aniston once admitted she and Pitt separated before Pit/Jolie happened, but of course nothing stops all of them, especially Aniston, to milk this whole thing as much as possible.  Most Hollywood women have some unsavory romances (cough Vivienne Leigh cough Liz Taylor cough Audrey Hepburn cough most Jennifer Aniston), but their other aspects (their acting, charity work, fashion impact) tend to overshadow. 

      And what’s wrong with being Goth?  To use Goddess Iman’s words, “Goth is an legitimate look!” She never was an American Sweetheart and never pretended to be.  She even got more tattoos in recent years…

      • Wellworn

        OK, this reply really got me to thinking that maybe….nope, still can’t stand her! 


  • TSkot

    Good Lord, people, she looks amazing: IN

  • PaulaBerman

    She always looks like she and John Proctor are going to the Sunday meeting. She just needs the hat with the buckle. 

  • Out.  She looks magnificent in the profile shot, but why she can’t get a dress fitted is beyond me.

  • lifetime_student

    Definitely funereal, but the cleavage puts it into “gold-digger 4th wife, now widow” territory. Sadly, out. Sadly, because her legs scare me and I hate to criticize anyone whose legs are screaming for some protein and a stairmaster.

    • lesmaha

      I had the same thought….

  • blondie65

    No.  Just….no.  Out. 

  • unbornfawn

    OUT.  You said it. I DID put more of an effort in to get dressed this morning.

  • Out. 

    I have always loved her, but we part ways with her “Bosnian” movie. Who does she think she is, making a film that fetishizes atrocities? 

  • lrhoff

    I think she’s “in” all the way.  Some people understand an understated environment (such as England), and it was a good call on her part to go with less glam.  She’s a beauty in whatever she wears and has that confidence that makes her outfits virtually always look good. 

    • theblondette

       Whaaat?! England is not an understated environment, honey! We LOVE our crazy fashion over here. Now the FCO, that’s a serious destination, so I appreciate dressing respectably, but this outfit is dour.

  • saanrio

    OUT.  One word: boring.

  • funkypeanut

    Honey, at least get your roots touched up.

  • funkypeanut

    Honey, at least get your roots touched up.

  • lesmaha


  • TheOriginalLulu

    Well, she IS gorgeous, but I have to agree completely about everything else.

  • “Why the hell does Angelina Jolie always dress like she’s at a funeral?”

    Because she’s dead to me.  Sartorially speaking, that is.

  • Kyle Crawford

    Yes, to a necklace, but I have been saying that over and over and over .. but this is fine for where she is and what she is doing, its not some red carpet, its the Foreign Commonwealth Office in London what ever that is….. 

  • phrenk

    The dress is boring and looks cheap, OUT.

  • luciaphile

    Out. Too big on her and it manages to be both too dull and a little too slutty at the same time.

  • granddelusion

    Out. She’s a bore.

  • granddelusion

    Actually, she’s looking a lot like her dad, which creeps me out for some reason.

    •  It’s actually kinda funny how much she always resembles their dad, and how much her brother always resembles their mom.  She has her mother’s face shape, but the eyes, nose and even lips are all Jon Voight circa Midnight Cowboy.

  • RedRaven617

    Out, out, out! And she is showing way too much boob for an event like this. 

  • alyce1213

    OUT.  The face is very beautiful, but that dress is poorly-fitted, bra-revealing, and screams for good accessories.
    Jeez, is she too skinny or what? I mean, look at her legs — they’re sticks.

  • It looks huge on her. Didn’t they have her size?

  • sagecreek

    OUT. She is coasting.

  • LittleKarnak

    Out; I love her but c’mon…she can afford to have that dress properly fitted to her.

  • Actually, this appears to be Royal Blue.  But Dull & Predictable, as well as too large, is right.

    However, she still gets an IN from me, because it’s not a Frankendress and she doesn’t clash.  She looks good in it.

  • Marian Humin

    You’re being too harsh. In!!!!

  • demidaemon

    OUT. This looks like a funereal bathrobe.

  • Ugh.  OUT.

  • OUT. Sloppy dress, sloppy styling.

  • Amy T.

    That girl needs a sandwich, STAT.

  • OUT. ffs woman, you have money, designers willing to give you ANYTHING and a win in the genetic lottery; have some FUN with dressing!

  • texashistorian

    Absolutely out. As soon as I saw her photo and even before I read your caption, I said to myself, “Oh crap, not another navy/black Jolie look again.” I actually got a wee depressed.

  • Out! Looks like something you wear while getting dressed up.

  • jahphotogal

    Bad dress but she is so pretty!!

  • lizajane1776

    Something in the third picture reminds me of Christina Hendricks. Is it the vast tracts of land? The chin tucked? The smizing?

    In any case, even though I love her and think she looks like my sister, OUT. Bored now.

  • quiltrx

    OUT.  I adore her..but the dress is WAY too big, and apparently made of wrinkly nightgown material.

  • guest2visits

    I was going to say she was dressing conservatively; both for the Brit’s sensibilities and the subject matter of the film.
    But that’s not a very conservative neckline.  And the dress really does look too big.   Hair’s very pretty and so are the shoes.

  • Out. She’s too pretty for this look. It is too sad for her.

  • Vic

    Awful as usual. Yawn.

  • LinXGUA

    Out … because i miss some color on her. You are right about the ‘funeral’ vibe. It’s like she forgot how wonderful she is.
    Celebrate life, girl! You’re awesome. Congrats for your movie. (Colors please!)

  • Fuckit. Out.

  • MissMariRose

    This chick suffers from a severe case of Serious Actress/Director Syndrome or SADS.

    SADS sufferers deliberately eschew the fashion aspects of the entertainment system that made them successful because they believe that people will take them more seriously if they look like they’re suffering in solidarity with the people who actually *are* suffering or struggling.

    What they don’t realize is that their “suffering” clothes just makes them look insufferable.

  • Bozhi

    She is wrinkled and out.

  • GTrain

    IN. It suits the occasion.

  • prettybigkitty

    Out.  Ill fitting and dull.

    OUT. Squandered beauty.  

    Hell, if I were so blessed genetically I promise you’d never forget it! 

  • Janet Prentice

    I feel like because of her work and association with global charities she’s only doing the bare minimum these days in terms of her styling–doesn’t want to look as though she’s bathing in gold and rubies while there are causes in developing and war-torn nations she is trying to support and garner attention for. In addition, the fewer times she ends up on a “Best Dressed List” means (perhaps marginally) less unwanted media attention, I would guess. It’s an OUT because I’ve seen her do minimal with WERQ results.

    • Something besides black, or a belt wouldn’t make her Marie Antoinette.

  • janetjb

    Pretty hair.


  • ccm800

     IN –  but I hear you. I honestly think all the razz she gets about how thin she is –  has her covering up as much as possible, most times.

  • This is pulling a Jolie at its…finest?

  • RzYoung

    No, you’re not being too harsh, she looks like shit.

    God I bet politicians are fed up of having to humour these celebs, her visit with Hague didn’t even make the ‘and finally’ news here

  • DaveUWSNYC

    So very OUT. 

  • Looks like a mourning bathrobe and she’s no Louise de Lorraine. OUT

  • Jangle57

    She is gorgeous and would make a burlap sack look good, however, that being said, I would still hope the burlap sack had some styling – this outfit sure doesn’t.  OUT

  • SorayaS

    I love Angelina but this is OUT to the nth degree! Boooo Angie. Pulling a Jolie is so pretentious- it screams “I don’t care about stuff like that- fashion is so shallow”

  • OneTwoThreeFashion


  • Aurumgirl

    I’m thinking maybe Angelina borrowed this dress from one of her nannies.  Someone nice and matronly, who wears a size 6. 
    Only she forgot to have it pressed before putting it on.

  • jjfg

    So, why DID she bother?  Feh.  OUT.

  • OUT. Geez

  • I kind of think judging this outfit in or out is irrelevant–she is actually saying sorry for your loss, it’s part of why she made the movie in the first place.

  • ChristySchiff

    OUT This is horrible.  I feel like she hates us for thinking she’s beautiful. She’s punishing us by trying not to look good.  (but then still looking light years of good better than the rest of us by doing so)

  • aimee_parrott

    Seriously?  She looks underdressed for a funeral.  Who wears a wrinkly black satin bathrobe and no makeup to a funeral?

    OUT.  Always OUT.

  • leftcoastpickle

    OUT.  Jesus Mary and Joseph. Even I make more of an effort.

  • howdoilook

    OUT. Wrinkly Morticia.

  • OUT. Tent-ish, taxi-creased mess. Also too much boob for politics – where does she think she is, Italy?

  • Valerie Jones

    Dear Angie, for guidance on how to show respect for your causes and your fans and use your natural gifts for good instead of as a platform for some sort of unspecified contempt, please see the Audrey Hepburn Manual (all), Princess Diana Manual pp 28-36 and George Clooney Manual pp 46 – 49.
    s/ Unable to Like You Despite Reasonable Effort

  • suzq

    She can well afford a dress that fits.  Out.

  • I don’t understand what folks expect from her.
    She dresses her age, in classic, appropriate, beautifully made clothes.
    She always looks fantastic.
    She obviously likes black and likes to be comfortable.
    She’s my hero.

  • Lisa_Cop

    OUT! You’re beautiful but geez put in at least some effort.

  • chitowndg

    Out because of fit -otherwise I have no beef with her look. 

  • joe_tey83

    “Why the hell does Angelina Jolie always dress like she’s at a funeral?”

    I guess she very desperately wants to be taken seriously. And it’s a battle a celebrity like her, or any celebrity for that matter, can never win unless they quit this whole entertainment business altogether and dive into whatever serious stuff she’s into full time.

  • Warmheartedgirl Seattle

    OUT.  A so so dress, in too big a size, and no jewelry, and with her roots showing, is a big ole out IMHO.  Irrationally dislike her, but that has NOTHING to do with it!

  • The dress is too big; it’s black, and it’s boring, and still even without little jewelry and low key makeup, she still manages to look better than most mortals. Pulling a “Jolie” indeed.

  • ThaliaMenninger

    The dress looks sloppy and half-assed. And her boob is hanging out. This is so OUTTTT.

  • LambeeBaby

    out. Its a silk bathrobe.

  • sweet_potato


  • OUT. pretty dress. bullshit delivery

  • Thathoodwink

    OUT. It’s too big and blousey on her, and is that a black clutch I spy with my little eye?

  • bellafigura1

    Wow, way out.

  • AnnPopovic

    I’m biased. She’s my fence-jumper. So I think this outfit says, “screw you, I could wear a tent with fuzzy slippers and I’d STILL make you wish you were me.

  • Idk…she looks chic and well put together as always. Come on its a screening, not a premiere! I say IN! Love my Angie!

  • PeaceBang

    She looks awful. Wan, and swimming in that dress. Also, the hair. And the dazed expression + smirk. OUT.

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    My breasts could have a camp out in that dress with her breasts.   And that is not a good thing – except if you are my husband’s imagination.

  • leave_Blake_alone


  • bluefish

    Angelina is Angelina.  She’s always been pretentious and full of herself.  Her clothing choices reflect that.  I don’t dislike her though I think she’s over-praised as an actress.  The dress and lack of embellishment are meant to say — I’m gorgeous and also an intellectual.  She’s been pulling this number for years now.  It’s kind of silly.  She’s is indeed one of those two things — much better just to own it for real and cut playing footsies under the table with the second notion.  Her film was a bust — maybe that’s the mourning.

  • She’s so boring and blah that I’d be happy to never see her on the blog again.  You guys are as irrationally kind to her as you are “mean” to Reese Witherspoon. 😉 

  • lilazander

    OUT! Plus, she looks extra unhealthy. Stop fucking posing for a minute, bitch. You have a shitload of kids, thake care of yourself fucking “mother Theresa”.

  • bitterk

    Lovely dress, gorgeous woman and yet the sum of the parts seems lacking.  She exudes the personality of a department store mannequin.
