Angelina Jolie in Saint Laurent

Posted on April 05, 2013

Thank goodness Saint Laurent has their new “Messiah” line, for the glamorous girl on the go who’s busy saving the world from itself.

Angelina Jolie attends the Women in the World Summit 2013 in New York City in Saint Laurent.

Saint Laurent Fall 2013 Collection/Model: Grace Mahary (IMG)

Otherwise, whatever would Angelina wear when she floats down from heaven? It really is only a matter of time before she starts accessorizing with giant wooden crosses on her back.

After a few minutes posing, she nonchalantly cured a bystander of diabetes, then raised one hand to the photographers and intoned, “Go. And click no more,” before quietly and fabulously floating away.

  • janierainie

    Hahahahahah! love you guys!

  • gabbilevy

    Ah, Santa Angelina.

  • eowyn_of_rohan

    I hope that if you pull the tassels, a better dress magically appears.

    • Vlasta Bubinka

      preferable one in a non-fungal color

      • mhleta

        You’re being nice. This is baby-shit brown, no doubt about it.

    • That being said, I cannot believe Angie does not wear more things with tassels? They feel like her Spirit Detailing.

  • Diego!

    hahahaha I cracked with laugher at your last sentence LOL! I have to admit, she does look ethereal, doesn’t she? I love her, go Angelina, teach some style to the starlets beneath you 😉

  • sylverlight

    Absolutely adore Angie… but that hair color & style are doing *nothing* for her… (shudder)

  • miagain

    and next she’ll be appearing as the ghost from Christmas future in Baz Luhrmann’s production of A Christmas Carol….

  • (snorting behind my hand)
    She looks like a reject extra from a Bible Epic.

    • lovelyivy

      She’s one headscarf away from a Special Guest credit as Mary Magdalene.

      • Vlasta Bubinka

        Please, let us go forth and inspire the children and part the seas…

      • Little_Olive

        Not even, I assume a woman in MM’s profession (which Angie would find a way to glorify) would walk around bear head.

      • YoungSally

        Jesus Christ –Superstar!!

    • well, her name is ANGELina, so this was kinda an obvious step for her, at some point in her life and career

    • judybrowni

      Old Testament Schmatta.

  • Thank you for the afternoon giggle. Her hair and make-up is beautifully soft and pretty though.

  • StellaZafella

    If nothing else, we see what she’s look like in the remake of “The Greatest Story Ever Told”…as Magdalene, not Jesus.
    But once I get past my tinges of envy, I really do like her.

    • lovelyivy

      Should have read further- I just posted the same thing! To be fair, she’d be a perfect Magdalene.

    • RebeccaKW

      Me, too. I’ve seen images of her in the make-up. To die.

      I, too, am envious and also like her.

    • I’d kinda rather see her as Jesus. Think of the fun gender role exploration you could do with a Bible pic if you reversed the cast.

  • Anniebet

    Yep, it’s like she’s clothing herself as a religious figure. Medieval abbess maybe? Pseudo Tibetan monk? Modern day druid princess? Outer space goddess of the universe? I give up.

  • disqus_sZRDWtvvVD

    =snort= “Messiah Line”, indeed!

  • Would it surprise any of us if one day, maybe after the kids are all teens, she decides to become a cloistered nun? I’m serious, just hands over her millions, finds a sac to wear, and disappears into service in third world countries. I thought she was going all Audrey Hepburn on us, but I think she’s so fond of extremes, she’ll take it to a whole new level of from Star to Servant.

    • Kathy_Marlow

      She’s always said she wanted to leave the “star” life behind and do refugee work.

      • I think she’s smart enough to know that by staying famous it opens more doors for her humanitarian efforts. It keeps more eyes on her causes. She’s a smart business woman and she has mastered the game. Sure, I miss sexpot, exotic Angelina, but I appreciate the path she’s chosen for herself and what she’s done to pay some of those millions of dollars forward.

        • lobsterlen

          Olivia Wilde said basically the same thing about using fame and her humanitarian work in Haiti.

    • lobsterlen

      Wasn’t there a famous golden age actress that became a nun?

  • CPK1

    her face looks beautiful

    • Kathy_Marlow

      I agree, she looks happy. She never looks happy.

      • Anne At Large

        The smile and the shiny hair are working really well here.

        • Kathy_Marlow

          I know! She likes the caftan look, for whatever reason and this event was about the woman she spoke for, not herself.

          • RebeccaKW

            Well, she does look better in a caftan than most people. She doesn’t look as horrible in this as she should.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    i cannot fault her good works, i can however fault that schmatta….

  • teensmom99

    “fabulously floating away.” Brilliant.

  • notterriblybitter

    Fancy pajamas; the kind you wear while lounging in your boudoir but don’t actually sleep in because of the danger of choking yourself with the tassel cords.

    • Vlasta Bubinka

      Lounging pyjamas for the boudoir… coming soon to a Clue board near you!

    • Kristin McNamara

      I was thinking graduation robe…. Possibly the ONLY acceptable occasion on which to sport tassels.

  • Aside from the shapelessness of this, that brown-ish color is horribly unflattering on her.

  • Pants_are_a_must

    Easter was last week, woman. Get with the times.

    • This is much more Good Friday (downer) than Easter Sunday. I feel depressed just looking at it. Somebody’s going to die. On a cross. In misery.

      • Pants_are_a_must

        Is there any other way of dying while crucified?

  • Chartreusite

    I’m not familiar with the Saint Laurent brand that much, but from what I remember from that episode of Project Runway Canada (I know, I know, don’t judge) I heard a lot about YSL being about tailoring and sharp figures and forms. I’m not in a position to judge, but this is shocking in comparison to that, no?

    • Lori

      Fashion lines often changed markedly when a new designer takes over and that’s what you’re seeing.

      • Chartreusite

        Makes sense to me. It’s got to be an interesting process trying to maintain the same clientele and niche in the fashion market with differing and contrasting aesthetics between the head designers of the company.

        • Lori

          This isn’t always true, but in this particular case the brand is apparently not trying to maintain the same clientele. They’re positioning the brand very differently than it used to be, including no longer using YSL and going by Saint Laurent instead. Different esthetic, different target customer.

          • Chartreusite

            Tres interresant! I’m not very familiar with the politics of the fashion world so this is all very interesting to hear; thanks for explaining!

  • GinaGeo

    It’s like she’s from some alternative version of Rivendell where everyone is depressed.

  • lobsterlen

    When Angelia looks beautiful she often looks so sad. When she wears Saint Laurent’s penance hairshirt clothing collection she looks happy. Apparently self-flagellation brings her happiness.

  • This outfit is filling me with rage, so much that I’ve lost the ability to explain WHY. I can only sum it up as such:


  • jw_ny

    Prop her up on a burro and point her towards Bethlehem….

    • Little_Olive

      Killing me.

    • susan6

      Yeah….my first response at the sight of that outfit was, “that should really have been done in a very specific shade of blue.”

      • Surly Temple

        Like Mimi Imfurst’s shade of blue.

  • padma sallah

    What we need is Saint Cate to come and issue a smackdown and show Angelina how it is done.

    I for one would watch the hell out of that and cheer madly on for Saint Cate.

  • geans

    It’s like if Jesus were a Jedi.

    • MoreShoes

      Capuchin monk chic.

      • Surly Temple

        Alas; if only she’d accessorized with some items from Dolce&Gabbana’s Monreale Cathedral collection.

  • IMNAngryLiberal

    Once again TLo have given us pictorial proof that NO ONE is so gorgeous they an get away with wearing ANYTHING. (And I have somewhat the irrational dislike of Angie that others have for Gwyneth and Taylor, so it always makes me feel a little warm inside when she shows up looking like crap.)

  • MilaXX

    {{{YAWN}}} She bores me.

  • C. C. Winslow

    Have we ever seen a “Woman on the Street” picture of her? If so, it’s been a long time. I’m trying to imagine her in skinny jeans and a kickass pair of boots.

    • oldbobbydraper

      yes, but she wears black or white maxi dresses in them.

    • lobsterlen

      I am not sure how Brad and her do it but other than promoting something they just seem to mostly disappear. It seems they have a private life.

  • She has form for wearing shapeless sacks, this is just a more monastic interpretation. She can get a job at Belgo’s if the acting dries up (London-centric reference).

  • Jessi03

    She just pulled the biggest Jolie I’ve ever seen.

  • Little_Olive

    Aw shoot. Your opening line says it SO WELL (snort). Nothing else to comment.

  • Kenisha Hill Phillips

    Jedi Realness

  • Angelina continues to epitomize drab and mopey stylistically while being just boring otherwise.

  • Jecca2244

    this is bad.

  • AmeliaEve

    Wait, didn’t YSL already do this in 1977 with the “Elegant Peasant” collection? Because that had similar elements but much better colors. It was droopy, drapey, and drawstringed, but I remember loving the hell out of all the richly patterned fabrics.

  • Therese Bohn

    She looks comfortable to me! And happy.

  • conniemd

    If she wanted to go biblical, she could have at least worn the Dolce & Gabbana collection with the Jesus like faces. They at least were artistically very interesting.

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    This makes me want to see what Heidi’s costume looked like, since she is the celeb who goes all out on this holiday.

  • Eva_baby

    See, now she’s just fuckin with us at this point.

  • Indigo54

    Grim Reeper

  • Sara__B

    The newest Hogwarts staff member.

  • kmk05

    Oh my, TLo, I am crying with laughter at work! The comment section isn’t helping with that either 😀

  • I like her, I really do. But seriously?

  • julnyes

    Her hair and makeup are lovely … that is all I will comment on.

  • VicD

    WWJWOTR – What would Jesus wear on the runway?

  • lobsterlen

    The only accessory missing is the matching stigmata.

    • PeaceBang

      Yes. It’s her yearbook photo for “Most Likely To Receive Stigmata.”

      • In my opinion, you win with that one, PeaceBang! Thanks for the guffaw!

    • drdarke

      Brad has those, @lobsterlen:disqus .

      He’s lived with her for seven years, so he qualified for his four miracles three years ago – he’s just waiting for The Vatican to dig through their backlog of enraged parent lawsuits to canonize him.

  • EEKstl

    “Messiah Line.” I just choked on my lettuce.

  • Spicytomato1

    Hair and makeup are lovely. Here the dress looks fairly innocuous, albeit shapeless, but I saw photos on another site and you can see straight through to her panties, yikes!

    • alyce1213

      Did you skip over the closeup?

  • Tassels courtesy of Tory Burch.

  • victoria rodeno


  • It’s a bit much…

  • Callie

    She looks a hot mess.

  • girliecue

    If celebrities want to dress badly, I’m down with that – hey, it’s grist for the Judging mill. But why oh why must they spend so much money to do so?!?

  • YoungSally

    SL is just so ahead of things….they knew that the new pope would be a jesuit…..and TLo is so plugged in that they knew to make a plug for the wooden cross.

    Available in all Barneys this fall.

    • AmeliaEve

      Actually the brown is more Franciscan. The Jesuits are known for very severe black on black. So it goes with the pope’s name, if not his origins.

      • YoungSally

        I stand corrected… aunt (Sister Margo O.P.) would be impressed by your knowledge.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    As if I needed another reason to despise her.

  • lacienciacohete

    She looks like a curtain in a nice house.

  • SewingSiren

    I wonder if it has a slit.

  • formerlyAnon

    You guys are hilarious. Sometimes that just hits me over the head all over again.

    I was thinking that this was one handmade clay bead necklace from being a gala fundraiser event outfit for the public face of some order of lay sisters who take in former prostitutes and teach them to tend bees and bake organic treats with the honey.

  • formerlyAnon

    P.s. Though you know, I have to give her props for having and sticking to her aesthetic. Droopy, drapey and drab isn’t exciting, but it seems to please her.

  • j_anson

    Wow, casting Angelina Jolie as Friar Tuck in the 1970s-themed Robin Hood adaptation was a risky but interesting choice.

  • capybara_cafe

    I have no idea why anyone would ever think this outfit is a good idea. She’s got to be having us on.

  • Candigirl1968

    She manages to find virtually every $5000 nightgown and $3000 robe that each of the high end designers make. It must be some kind of gift.

  • There’s an Obi-Wan Kenobe vibe going on here. Just add a hood to that over-dress-black-schmata, and you’ve got it. Oh, and add some sand-colored stains up the hem.

  • It’s from the Fall 2013 collection – and the colors look like it. Well it’s spring (technically – where I’m freezing it’s still snowing), so Angelina: put that thingy in your closet and wait till the end of september…

  • BrightsideSusan

    Do people attack George Clooney for all his work trying to raise money and awareness of issues around the world or is it just the women we vilify? Do we really need to attack the woman for her work because we don’t like her dress?

    • PeaceBang

      Clooney manages to do it without the aura of Madonna Dolorosa.

    • JauntyJohn

      This. This is a valid and worthy point, imho.

      • No it isn’t. When George shows up dressed like Jesus, then it will be a valid point.

        • JauntyJohn

          Well, there’s a man who walks around West Hollywood sometimes dressed as Jesus, and he looks both pretty accurate — for what the popular conception of what that might look like is — and actually kind of hot (a line of words I never thought I’d string together) so… I’d like to see that!

    • T Lo, I love what you do and come here all the time but now that you’ve done it to a celebrity I admire, I’m going to decide that I hate what you do and that you’re attacking all women!

      Yeah, that sounds about par for the course. Stop pretending we’re “attacking the woman for her work” when we made fun of a dress, exactly the same way we do hundreds of times a month to other celebrities.

      • BrightsideSusan

        I just felt that the comments were all about her life and less about her questionable fashion choices. I don’t care one way or the other about celebrities and I do enjoy your humor. Just got upset by the commentary – sorry if I offended you. I feel quite slapped down.

        • Well I’m sorry if you feel slapped down, but it gets damn annoying fielding subtle accusations of misogyny just because we happened to aim our bitchiness at a celebrity someone likes. We talk about celebrities’ lives and images in the context of their fashion all the time. It’s kind of the point of our celebrity coverage.

          • BrightsideSusan

            I actually wasn’t reacting to what you wrote. (it was clever and based on the get up) but to the piling on of the the “mean girl” comments. I guess everyone gets into one upping and I just need to refrain from expressing my tender sensibilities in the future.


    ALLAH O AKBAR !!!!!!!!!

  • PeaceBang

    So glad she stopped by on her way to part the Red Sea.

  • What? No hat?

  • I think she should have been appointed the new Pope.

  • Oh, please girl.

  • alyce1213

    I’m ready for my closeup Mr. DeMille.

  • unbornfawn

    You are a movie star dear. Have some fun with that once in a while.

  • Oh good…she’s starting to look old and strange. I’ll sleep well tonight.

  • Stevie Nicks dress.

  • jetpackdino

    And on the 5th day (of April 2013), GOD said, THIS? Is not good. Verily Angelina I say unto you: thine dress is an abomination in mine sight. Your hair’s a bit fucked up too.

  • guest2visits

    Angelina is always happiest in black.
    Don’t know why she prefers the witchy-looks, she can wear just about anything well.

  • Truthiness

    Meanwhile, having actually watched the YouTube Angie speaking in her horrible, dress, about Malala Yousafzai at an Women in the World Summit, yeah, I officially don’t care about this dress. Angie talked about what Malala has done, her courage and spirit even before the assassination attempt by the Taliban. So sure, Angie’s wearing an ugly coloured, shapeless robe while doing so…eh. Oh and she later gave 200K to the teen’s organization.

    I get enjoying fashion. Though this blog, is in fact, usually the only time I pay attention or care about fashion (well, I cry when I see awards show filled with pretty people with tons of money, with not apparent taste. Why? pretty people, why?). And that is SURE a damn ugly dress by Angie. And ugly hair. And terrible make-up. But if there is a sliding scale for being in an airport (as there should be) or walking the streets, this shouldn’t deserve less than that. Sorry to be all self-righteous. But women’s rights, kind of a big deal to me, and watching that video? yeah. Fashion pffffttt to that. Though yes, what is with beautiful people not knowing better? so frustrating.

    Maybe later when my general rage has cool down, and given how women’s right in THIS country are being handled? that’s going to be a while…I might be able to appreciate the pretty more. Or in this case, the non-pretty.

  • thelovelydove

    She’s serving up Old Testament realness.

  • Sunraya

    Why is she mailing so happily when she looks so bad? And she is very gaunt.

  • This looks ridiculous.

  • I personally don’t like black and brown together unless it’s already combined in the fabric. I continue to be surprised that Angelina doesn’t have better fashion taste. She isn’t particularly stylish. She doesn’t change very often. Her way of dressing is boring. Her husband usually looks scraggily. He’s no longer a fine looking man that he once was. They walk around like royalty. If fans would quit fawning all over them, they might come down to earth.

  • DebbieLovesShoes

    Jesus, this is not your dress.

  • She wears a lot of things that billow from the waist.

  • TieDye64

    Bravo, darlings!

  • Nailed it! Somehow Saint Laurent channeled Bono, but in a womenswear line.
