      Is it his movie premiere or her boobie premiere?

      • Nikko Viquiera

        too soon!

        • Little_Olive

          Yes, but your pointing it out is what made me laugh ๐Ÿ˜›

        • MilaXX

          The phrasing is awkward, but I think the not so subtle message they are sending is that Angie is better than ever.

        • Isabel

          She should be taking it easy and resting.

          • kryten8

            …she got the procedure a few months ago, if I’m not mistaken.

      • MilaXX

        Given the way he’s dressing it does feel more like her return to health tour than the poledance for his film.

        • marlie

          Because he’s clearly dressing like he doesn’t give a rat’s ass about HIS movie.

          • AnaRoW

            Judging by the amount of press he’s been doing, he DOES care about the movie, just not the clothes.

            • drdarke

              Yeah, what’s with Pitt, anyway? He’s got a movie out, and he dresses like a hobo – seriously, the guys in the much-derided MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING poledance are dressed better than him!

      • H2olovngrl

        I can’t lie. I stared at her boobs with a furrowed brow in every shot to see if they looked any different.

    • fiddlecub

      She looks good enough to not be accused of pulling a Jolie.

      He’s embarrassing.

      • VeryClaire

        HE’s the one pulling a Jolie!

      • marshmallowjane

        I like the way she bends over to take a picture with a fan so we can see the glorious buttons down the back of her dress. There are no accidents with her.

    • Chuck Barthelme

      Could have made a better shoe choice, but otherwise, working for her. Maybe a darker lip color, but otherwise, I like it.

      • ballerinawithagun

        Hate white pumps no matter who makes them.

        • Carla_Charlton

          And most white shoes of any sort just look cheesy…

          • marlie

            They end up looking either really juvenile, or really aging, to me.

        • Aurumgirl

          Or who wears them.

        • RedRaven617

          Yup. They should be against the law.

        • marshmallowjane

          I agree. Yuck. They don’t fit right either.

    • decormaven

      Dear, there is no use to dress in couture if you’re going to stand beside this ragamuffin. It’s an immediate buzzkill.

      • Beardslee

        A ragamuffin that can’t even comb his hair.

        • marlie

          And take a shower. And put on clean clothes.

          • Prudentia

            Or completely zip his trousers up.

        • Rhonda Shore

          She’s just flawless.

      • IMNAngryLiberal

        This is a case of scroll-down FUG where the FUG is Mr. Pitt.

      • 3boysful

        Oh, look–Angie’s latest charitable work is bringing a homeless man to the red carpet with her . . . oh, wait, that’s Brad?

        • marshmallowjane

          His hair looks good for him. It looks healthy and clean for a change. It usually looks stringy and dirty. Is he just too cool to bother with being a celebrity?

    • newleaf1

      Not sure white is her best color but that is a great dress. Love the button detailing.

      • Jane Donuts

        Agree. She looks like death warmed over in this color, even more so than usual.

        • Esz

          Agreed again – She looks sick and/or very very tired – the white OR the lighting is not working for her.

          LOVE the dress though – shit hot!

    • Sobaika

      This look has more interest than her default black blouson femme fatale thing. She looks good!

    • Fordzo

      Oh, FFS Brad. If I were Angelina I’d have refused to leave the house with him.

      • marshmallowjane

        I wonder what their dialogue is when they’re getting ready for a read carpet event. Does she nag at him? Do they both express frustration that they must step into public?

        • Fordzo

          Alright, I’ll play along. I’ll be Brad, you be Angie.

          *deep inhale…..holding breath…..long, slow exhale* “Ang. Babe. Do we have to go? I’m in the middle of a sculpture, and going out among The People saps my artistic powers.”

    • VeryClaire

      If I were wearing all white (and looking interesting for the first time in ages), I would NOT let that grungy homeless man in the last picture put his arm around me!

      • Spicytomato1

        Seriously. I choked when I got to the first shot with him, it had the effect of a random guy photobombing elegant Jolie.

        • VeryClaire

          I know – glamour, glamour, glamour, whoa what the hell is that?

          • Spicytomato1

            Adding to the humor is that she’s smiling and demure in the first shots and then in the first Brad shot he’s smirking kinda crazily and she’s stone-faced. Too funny.

            • VeryClaire

              Yeah, he KNOWS he’s the photo bomb.

    • mshesterp

      Oh wow–of all the Jolie looks to put on Whiteboard, I would never have thought this would be the one. I think she looks fantastic–worthy of commentary! I’m not sure that white is her best color, but the dress is dramatic, gorgeous, and so different from what she normally wears that I’m giving her huge thumbs up.

      He looks…actually kinda shameful because she looks so great. Dude, it’s YOUR movie premier and your wife looks (and is) amazing. Put some damn work in.

      • wonderdivaEtsy

        Thank you! When you said “Dude,” it finally hit me why Brad’s look seems so familiar…he reminds me of The Dude in “The Big Lebowski.”

    • Frank_821

      How odd that Brad keeps dressing like such a schlub. If she’s making this much effort, he could make one. at least if he’s going to go casual, it should be chic casual

    • Fordzo

      Wait. Back the truck up. Are those the same pants and shirt he wore last week? I give up.

      • marlie

        YES. I’m pretty sure he’s worn the same pants and shirt for the last 3 red carpets/premieres. On different days.

      • formerlyAnon

        Let’s be fair. If he likes ’em, he can afford 20 identical ensembles. No reason to think they’re the identical items.

    • MilaXX

      This is the most fashion-y I’ve seen her in a long time. Still not a fan of white shoes, but they mostly go with the dress here.

    • Denise Alden

      God, he drive me nuts! In other news, she looks so happy and relaxed, that I’m actually happy for her. What the hell?

    • Nikko Viquiera

      taking a picture with her fans! awesome :) She’s won me over again.

      • NYCGlamourpuss

        I know, I really loved that picture in particular.

    • hughman

      I, for one, welcome our Glamazon Angelina Overlord.

    • MarTeaNi

      …Is Hobobrad there carrying his keys? Couldn’t wait to get away from those cameras eh, I don’t blame you.

      • TAGinMO

        Shades, I think.

    • Nikko Viquiera

      Aww how nice of her. She brought an impoverished, homeless man with her to the red carpet. Seriously, I’ve seen homeless men on my streets better looking than that schlub beside queen jolie.

    • KirFla

      I just said “Jesus Christ” to my monitor. This woman is a GD movie star.

    • Diego!

      She looks adorable! No complaints here! Angie I love youuu!!!

    • berkeleygirl

      She looks happier than she has in years.

    • lizajane1776

      Am I really mean that every picture of her, I am looking for the scars? And seriously, you can’t see them!

      Great job of her plastic surgeons!

      And make up artists that you can’t even see any discolored skin.

      And stylists for choosing fully bodiced outfits that still look great on her!

      • MilaXX

        My friend had a double mastectomy and reconstruction from some doc that supposed to be the best in the biz. They even tattoo aeriolas onto the new breast. Surprisingly there are barely any scars. I think modern med has gotten better at doing this type of surgery.

        • Griffinqueen

          I understand that sometimes they don’t even need to tattoo the nipple anymore. They can actually SAVE THE NIPPLE! (Does that need to be a t-shirt?:)

          • NYCGlamourpuss

            I think I read in the NY Times article about her mastectomy that they did do that special test to make sure the nipple could be saved, and in her case, it was.

      • NDC_IPCentral

        If you read the articles on her surgery in The New York Times I believe you’ll find that the incisions were small (yes, balloon in toaster slot joke here – we made ’em all the time with my patent counterparts at in-house law department of Major Health Products Corporation when I was there in the 80s and 90s) and her own nipples were spared. At least that’s what I recollect. And I see that I’m being verified by NYC Glamourpuss, too.

        • lizajane1776

          Thank you. I have not read any articles on her surgery, only the MAJOR HEADLINES, so I was picturing the scarring I have seen on certain patients through the years.

    • Agatha Guilluame


    • schadenfreudelicious

      The Sons of Anarchy Jesus look is getting mighty tiresome

    • DTLAFamilies

      Brad’s hair and goatee are the male version of the Carpet Does Not Match the Drapes.

    • Catherine

      Fabulous. Love the undone buttons down the bottom of the skirt.

      • l_c_ann

        She must have muscles of steel to sit on that many buttons through that movie.

    • Constanza รlvarez Espinoza

      I love this, except for two things:
      1) I really like her with darker hair!
      2) There’s an accesory with black things on her side and it doesn’t match with her fantastic look. It looks like a trash bag or something.

    • titaness25

      I feel like he’s decided for realsies that he cannot be the pretty one in the relationship, and therefore there is no point in trying at all. When Angelina puts on anything remotely nice, she looks disproportionately amazing. Poor Braddie. I feel his pain.

      • marlie

        He could at least put on clean clothes and take a shower. SHEESH.

        • Mona_Visa

          Yeah, he’s changed what should have been beautiful photo op into a scratch-n-sniff from Slumming It Weekly.

    • mjude

      thatta girl!

    • Kiltdntiltd

      They look like two different species. She is from the planet Fabulousus, and he is from Douchtastica.

      • VeryClaire

        If in Douchtastica they live on the streets without running water, I think you’re right.

        • $26351735

          However in Douchtastica, there’s an ample supply of battery-powered beard trimmers. No need for running water!

        • KateShouldBeWorking

          Axe body spray comes out of the tap in Douchtastica, not water.

      • Robin K. Osterberg

        My first thought “what a douche…” looks like he stopped by to pick her up after his shift at the factory…

    • marlie

      I love her dress. This is pretty fabulous. My only quibble is the shoes – I hate plain, white shoes.

      HE has been wearing the same clothes for the past three days (except the jacket).

    • Little_Olive

      Super sharp for her. I love it when she is not in monkwear.

      If for no other reason than the recent events in her life, I’ma repeat: Angie, eat a little.

    • PastryGoddess

      That is one agressive peplum. That being said, it’s nice to see her in something other than a black shmatta

    • crash1212

      Pretty dress. Wish she had done something more fun with the shoes. Love Brad’s jacket. Wish he’s wash his hair.

    • unbornfawn

      When did she start hanging out with Nick Nolte?

      • VeryClaire

        lolz, lolz, lolz

      • OrigamiRose

        You owe me a new laptop ๐Ÿ˜‰

        • unbornfawn

          I’ll get right on that! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • conniemd

      That gold detailing is freaky fantastic. In the first pic, I thought she had black lace cut-outs. The next one she had red instead of black. The next couple had completely different placements of red and black and I’m like
      WTF. Then I finally saw that it was gold. It was great with the black and red background, because it kept picking up different colors and reflecting them back.

    • Monzerrat Ontiveros

      No discussion!

    • majorbedhead

      It was all going so well until Jesus Pitt Superstar came into the photos.

      I’m a total sucker for those kinds of buttons, so even though she’s on my irrational dislike list, I like this look. A lot. Minus JPS, of course.

      • marlie

        Agree with you on every point.

      • NDC_IPCentral

        You made me snort with laughter at the JPS moniker.

    • Lola Channing

      I think it’s safe to say what Ms. Jolie did by going public was an extraordinarily courageous thing to do. Standing ovations, throwing of roses and general shouting of “brava Ms. Jolie”!

    • Daisy Walker

      I think that’s the first peplum I’ve ever liked.

    • formerlyAnon

      I sure hope Mr. Pitt still appreciates what he’s got.

    • In_Stitches

      It definitely looks like they’re at HER premiere, not his. Odd that she chose to pull out all the stops for a movie that isn’t even hers, but I’ll take it. She looks fabulous.

      • marlie

        Not odd at all. This movie poledance is her first foray into the public since her mastectomy announcement. She/her people knew that ALL eyes are going to be on her, so she has to look her best.

        But, baffling that *HE’S* not even making the least bit of an effort.

    • Dd

      Is he trying to look like a zombie?

      She looks fab! Still could use an extra pound or two, but otherwise, gorgeous!

    • formerlyAnon

      P.s. Reading all the slams on juxtaposition of Glamorous Edition Jolie and the sartorially delusional Mr. Pitt: It is entirely possible that she does love him and likes how he looks. Or simply doesn’t care.

      Ahem. Resuming cynical world view of celebrities, now.

    • Richard

      She is actually putting an effort into her look, and she is knocking it out of the park. She hasn’t looked this beautiful and put together in a while. I’m surprised that you guys didn’t give her a werq, because when was the last time she’s looked this good?

      Brad Pitt looks offensive. Is his fly undone?

      • OrigamiRose

        No joke, I am certain those are the same garments he has worn for every World War Z red carpet of late. The open-looking zipper is the tell.

        • marlie

          Yes. He’s worn this outfit to at least three different premieres for this movie over the past several days. And the weird zipper is *absolutely* the giveaway.

          • OrigamiRose

            Can you imagine the shame (not here, I like the pragmatic take of TLo and commenters, but on most sites) a woman would be put through for recycling her garments event after event? Oy.

            • marlie

              If it was the same day, and they just went from one event to the next, I don’t think it would bother me so much. And even if the ladystars did it, but didn’t just LOOK dirty… But the fact that he’s already a sloppy mess, and she’s putting in SO much effort, it just smacks of laziness on his part to me.

        • Fordzo

          The zipper is what gave it away for me. And the shirt is kinda-sorta see through, so you get a glimpse of his necklace, which is exactly what was happening at the last premier (when Ang wore the black dress). The only thing that changes is the jacket and (I hope) his socks and underwear.

          • OrigamiRose

            “Stars! They Wear the Same Clothes Day After Day, Just Like Us!” :)

    • silaria

      I’m kind of surprised this is just a Whiteboard post. This might be the most effort AJ has put into a look in years. Jewelry! Makeup! No Grecian drapery! A nice use of a belt and kick-ass buttons up the back. I like it.

      Hm. On the one hand, she’s been looking great lately. On the other hand, I strongly suspect these outfits are meant to say, “Look, world! I look great! I’m still hot!” Which I kind of wish was unnecessary.

      • marlie

        These outfits are ABSOLUTELY meant to say “Look, world! I look great! I’m still hot!”

    • filmcricket

      She looks great. Would like to see a slightly redder lip, and different shoes, but otherwise, way to go, Angie. Brad, you go sit in the corner and think about what you’ve done.

    • ballerinawithagun

      Perfect peplum!

    • Chase

      Angie looks great. Brad looks like an aging lead singer for a local bar band.

      Once, just once, I’d like to see Brad and Angie both go dressed to the nines for something. I know they don’t have to, because they both look how they look, but I get tired of them skating by on perfect bone structure. Can’t they just once show everybody how it’s done? I could then accept another 30 years of naff red carpet looks.

      Once. It’s all I ask.

    • Ediths_Head

      The little buttons are to die for, they even overcome the shoes. She’s on fire. He should be set on fire for going out like that. He seems to have had that t-shirt thingy on for the past three days.

      • marlie

        Yep. The pants, too. EW. Reminds me of a college professor I had way back when. He’d wear the same pants every day (Monday-Wednesday), and we could tell, because he had a habit of leaning against the chalk board, and you’d see the same chalk patterns on the seat of his pants from one day to the next.

    • AlisonS

      I really love this outfit. Until she stands next to her husband, and then I’m worried that grease stains will get all over the white.

    • Nancer

      Not a huge fan of hers, though her recent public announcement about her mastectomy did raise her in my esteem. That took courage to put that information out there so that others can perhaps benefit. All that aside, this look is perfection. She is truly one of the most beautiful women alive, and this is a lovely look.

    • teensmom99

      That’s an interesting outfit for the nurse who is helping out the people who live under bridges. I mean, isn’t that a sexy nurse with a drug addict. That’s sure what those people look like to me.

    • StrandedFashionista

      I think this is one of the chicest dresses I’ve ever seen on her. It’s very Sci-Fi Betty Draper. That being said, I’d like to see a nice, rich red lip on her… and I think her face powder is a little strongly applied because she has an oddly white face.

    • Beth513

      I am normally not a fan of hers, but totally respect her for being so public about something so personal for the greater good and I’m not sure if it’s all my warm feelings of good will or that she really does look awesome here, but I think this is the best she’s ever looked. I feel like this is slightly less safe for her, she’s almost not pulling a Jolie here.

    • LaSylphide

      I don’t like it, but I love it, if that makes sense… It sort of looks like it shouldn’t work as well as it does. Not sure white is a good color for her, though; she looks washed out. Maybe better makeup?

    • NYCGlamourpuss

      I normally defend him, because yes, he’s still hot. But he should have dressed up just a skosh more for this. She, on the other hand, looks flawless.

    • zenobar

      The contrasting gold accents, combined with the stiff peplum and the stark white of the dress, are giving this whole thing a skeletal vibe. And I feel kind of bad saying that because Angelina is clearly thinner than usual and her collarbones are jutting very sharply, no doubt due to the physical/mental/emotional stress of the last month. But – yeah. Even from behind, it looks like a scary corset from the Freaky Wasp Waist Collection of Nineteen-Ought-One.

      • Tina Power

        She will never look worse than the time she did around filming “Wanted” when her mother passed away.

    • Vera

      She looks great, and she’s totally stealing the show from Brad.

      • decormaven

        It cannot be ruled stealing when someone is not even claiming possession. He should have just sent a cardboard cut-out for the RC. I think this man cares about many things, but his RC look is not one of them.

    • MaggieMae

      I prefer Angelina a bit more covered up. One, cover the tatoos. Two, something over the shoulders because for the last few years, girl has been looking gaunt. I like her best in simple, long streamlined classic Hollywood gowns.

      Brad? Thanks for the chuckle.

    • julnyes

      She is shutting it down. I love the buttons on the back of her dress and the gold belt. He looks like a hobo.

    • Sara Leigh Merrey

      It’s his movie, right? So why does it look like he’s tagging along with her. I wish she didn’t have those tattoos. Otherwise, I think she looks pretty fabulous. And I’m not even an Angelina fan.

    • e jerry powell


      Mega-points right there.

    • Tracy_Flick

      I love it. She looks gorgeous and happy.

    • PrunellaV

      Why didn’t someone pull that street bum off of her?

    • BlueBell42

      Ahhh white shoes!! Otherwise well done.

    • GoryDetails

      She looks marvelous, but her arm-candy has spent too long in somebody’s pocket picking up lint.

    • Gaby

      This is a pretty fierce effort on her part. Love the buttons down the back and the metallic embellishments over the peplum. She should realize she can work a lot more dress than the average mortal – this would look overworked on someone else (Ginnifer Goodwin, looking at you).

      We will not speak of the douche next to you. DOUCHE-CHILL.

    • Mona_Visa

      This is weird, because… Isn’t Angelina doing Brad a favor by showing up at *his* movie premiere? Isn’t *she* doing a favor for *him*?

      You’d think he’d have enough respect to at least comb his hair.

      • marlie

        Or wash it.

    • Anniebet

      Great dress with interesting details. I gotta say though, if it were anyone else’s knobby feet in those cheap looking white pumps, we’d be all over their asses.

      I think Brad’s given up the fame thing (along with showers and clothes changes) and is resigned to playing second fiddle to Saint Angie. Maybe he should start cooking for her?

    • quiltrx

      Lovely dress and right in her wheelhouse. LOVE the buttons on the back. (the white pumps make me feel very Beverly Sutphin year-round, so we’ll skip that.)
      But ERMAGERD, did he seriously pull out that wrinkly leather thing AGAIN for a premiere? Didn’t we SHAME him enough the last time? And I don’t like that t-shirt knit that you can see through, especially not when your wife IS WEARING COUTURE FOR FUCK’S SAKE.

    • nannypoo

      It’s too long. Otherwise pretty. And it’s nice of her to have her picture taken with that homeless man.

    • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

      She looks better than she has in years — she doesn’t look like she has a metal pole stuck up her butt. She is a radiant MOVIE STAR here! You’re never fully dressed without a smile…

      • Tina Power

        I agree. I can believe she’s probably going to be more relaxed now that she’s had her surgeries.

    • JP

      The details on that dress are so interesting — but I wonder if those buttons are annoying to sit on.

    • Helene Hertzlinger

      The bionic woman lives!

    • bertkeeter

      She is stunning…dress not bad either!

    • bertkeeter

      Brad obviously doesn’t give a rat’s ass about impressing anyone…GOD BLESS HIM for that!

    • MissMariRose

      Great dress. But I would have paired it with gold heels instead of white.

    • demidaemon

      This is one of her more interesting looks. But man, standing to her greaser man, there is a disconnect.

    • Imasewsure

      Great dress but man does her coloring look awful in some of those shots. Hope she stays with the more fitted curvy looks in the future. Hate those flowy things she usually wears (although of course she still looks beautiful in therm)

    • stephbellard

      She looks like a character from Revenge; he looks like a character from Sons of Anarchy.

    • stacey

      Jennifer A. is home smirking, “I was married to him when he was hot!”

    • kvlm

      I mean..DAMN. She is otherwordly beautiful and knows how to dress. That dress is ahmahzing.

    • amanda lynn

      …how long until she can wear a dress (or work a RC) and we NOT only stare at her bewbs?

    • jjfg

      What is going on with her face? Horrible lighting?

    • DarkWillow

      Can I get a “bow down, motherfuckers!”?

    • kimiakay

      Why is she hugging a homeless guy? Oh, probably one of her charities. Sheesh. Like the dress, one of the few times I’ve seen her not in a floor length.

    • librarygrrl64

      Really nice to see her smiling so much lately. :-)

    • Stacy Feng

      Nice to see Angelina putting some effort in. Now what to do about Brad?
