    • Sobaika

      Perfectly appropriate considering the venue and topic. I wish the first outfit weren’t quite so baggy, though.

      • schadenfreudelicious

        I also wish she had worn a belt with those trousers

        • Denise Alden

          That’s also a lot of nipple considering the venue.

          • Jennica Brocious

            Honestly I was confused by the nipples due to the surgery she had…guess they kept them?? :)

            • annla

              She had “nipple saving surgery.” But once you are reconstructed, you really don’t need to wear a bra much. They just stay put.

            • KES4K

              “Don’t need to” does not equal “shouldn’t”, I’m afraid. She’s wearing a cami, why not at least choose one with a shelf bra/lining?!

            • Jennica Brocious

              Thanks for the clarification :)

          • Twigg

            Maybe it’s a cold room?

          • not_Bridget

            Should she have worn a burkha? What’s with the neo-Puritan nipple hate?

      • Bernadette

        Agree on the belt.

    • CommenterFormerlyKnownAsR

      What the hey is going on with the fit of that jacket? Holy inadequate tailoring, Batman.

      • http://attiresmind.blogspot.com/ Kiltdntiltd

        Miss Angie’s Ladyfronts are a bit much for that jacket. Its pulling something chronic.

        • CommenterFormerlyKnownAsR

          is that also why it’s so wonky around her neck?

          • http://attiresmind.blogspot.com/ Kiltdntiltd

            That’s a separate issue of fit. The jacket is too wide through the shoulder for her, so it doesn’t hit correctly across the back of the neck.

            • CommenterFormerlyKnownAsR

              I was thinking it was also too wide…good to have my suspicions confirmed by someone who knows! There’s really no excuse for her to be sporting such an off-the-rack-seeming look, IMO.

          • Gatto Nero

            Yes. The pulling at the button is causing the neckline to bellow out.

        • leahpapa

          Btw, I read “something chronic” in the voice of Audrey Hepburn as Eliza Doolittle at Ascot. (Lord Boxington: Do you mean he drank? Eliza Doolittle: Drank? My word, something chronic!) Which pretty much made my day.

          • Constant Reader

            Me too! And then I was nodding sagely, thinking “Why yes, that jacket does pull the way Alfred P. Doolittle drank.”

      • Julie

        Yeah it looks like something you can buy at H&M.

    • ashtangajunkie

      It’s all fine, but the first needed tailoring and a belt.

    • Missy

      She really is very radiant. However, the clothing all looks a size too big on her.

      • kimmeister

        Her glow, it’s almost saintly in that first look.

    • artgirl9

      I like the pants but wish she had worn a belt. Not a fan of that kind of blouse-always looks askew. Interesting that on the model they chose to show it untied. In general, I like the styling on the model a lot more. The white outfit-meh. Again-styling and fit on model is better. Looks so 80’s to me. It’s okay.

    • teensmom99

      Great pants for tall, long-legged women. The rest of us: keep away. And kudos to her for taking on this cause in such a professional way.

    • BlairBear

      That first outfit is so much no with a side of pointy nipples

      • Kate Andrews

        Yeah — all I can see is her headlights.

      • MoHub

        Total nipple visibility in that first blouse.

        • BlairBear

          That’s not visibility that’s a focal point

      • leahpapa

        I really don’t know much about the anatomy of breasts after a mastectomy and reconstructive surgery, but it feels a little gross to call out her nipples (which she has, in her capacity as a mammal) in an outfit in which she is clearly not trying to call attention to them. It trends a little close to body snark, IMO.

        • EveEve

          “clearly not trying to call attention to them”
          I had the exact opposite reaction: She is *clearly* trying to call attention to them. And that is “clearly” in all senses of the word.

          • MilaXX

            I think she just got caught in a look that needed petals. It’s happened to all of us at some point. Well those odd us with female boobs.

            • kimmeister

              I was just reading Clinton Kelly’s book about the top 100 fashion mistakes that women make, and last night I hit the page dealing with headlights. Nipples are perfectly normal and natural, but he was saying that it doesn’t matter if you’re male or female, gay or straight, they will always draw the attention of the eye if they’re out and about like this. And he, too, recommended petals if the gal doesn’t want to go the padded bra route.

            • Kent Roby

              A male self-proclaimed fashion expert saying that a woman should completely hide any evidence that she has nipples? That kinda makes me a bit disgusted.

            • MilaXX

              Why? It’s the same fashion faux pas as VPLs.

            • Kent Roby

              I don’t personally see it as a fashion faux pas; but apparently I’m part of the small percentage of BKs who are not grossed out by nipples.

            • MilaXX

              Grossed out? No, but out of place in an outfit where nips weren’t intentional? Yes but no more so than a bra strap showing, or visible panty lines with a just as easy solution.

            • KinoEye

              Maybe I’m just weird/super unobservant, but I honestly didn’t notice the nipples until I read the comments. Surprising, considering the top is white and I normally do notice these things. But perhaps I’m just having an off day.

          • leahpapa

            How, though? She’s wearing a camisole and has pretty clear support. I just don’t get why a woman *needs* to make sure there’s no visible evidence that – again, in her capacity as a mammal – she has nipples. Seriously, the lady is at an event to end sexual violence and at least half the comments here are about her nipples. I’m all for a blog about fashion, celebrity, and even gossip, but there’s something just a bit icky about that.

            • KateShouldBeWorking

              Well said, leahpapa!

            • EveEve

              “I just don’t get why a woman *needs* to make sure there’s no visible evidence”
              I haven’t read any suggestion that there should be no visible evidence that she is a mammal. I certainly wasn’t suggesting it. This blog is full of discussion about the deployment of ye olde headlights. Not just hers. (hello – Rihanna?) I guess those who find it icky should skip over it?

            • marlie

              Well, Rihanna intentionally went out completely naked last week, so that’s a whole other ball of wax. Since Angie is wearing what seems to be appropriate undergarments/layers, I don’t personally think it’s a huge deal that you can still see headlights; sometimes it’s something that can’t be helped without going above and beyond normal dressing practices.

            • J. Preposterice

              And — and here’s why, for me, it tacks really close to body snark — people have nipples of all different sizes and colorations, and Angelina’s are large and significantly darker than the surrounding skin. That’s not her fault and there’s nothing she can do about it. People with other kinds of nipples have it way easier in the hiding department (mine basically couldn’t show if I wanted them to; I’d have to go all Amy Sedaris and put lemon ends under my clothes). I have a friend who wears almost nothing but plaid shirts, because even with a padded bra or petals, her nipples stick out. She finds it embarrassing, so, plaids to break up the outlines to make it less obvious. I think it’s perfectly legit to take the opposite view and say “well, these are just my nipples, they stick out a lot, better just accept it”, which it seems to me Angelina has done.

            • gretty

              I think the very fact that she’s at an event to end sexual violence and her nipples are causing attention to be diverted from the cause is exactly WHY things like that should be checked for before leaving the house. I’d say the same about any fixable clothing issue that would distract from the seriousness of the event – you want people to be completely focused on the event, then you make sure nothing you’re wearing or doing will distract from that, be it a loud/tacky outfit choice, dying your hair bright blue or walking in with a pack of chihuahuas. None of those things are “wrong” – if you’ve been in front of cameras long enough to know the sorts of things people will fixate on, you don’t show up doing/wearing one of those things.

              PS Women have genitals as well, very natural and beautiful, and also completely normal for folks to take note of them if on display walking down the street. Natural body part does not equal NBD when on display in public.

        • MilaXX

          They can and often will attempt to use the person’s actual nipples since most of the reconstruction occurs underneath the skin. Hence the nipples will be sensitive to friction and the cold like every other female. Someone should have caught that this was happening and given her some nip covers.

        • Grumpy Girl

          It looks to me like she has on an undershirt. Which should help more than it does. I would suspect an awkward moment caught by a gleeful photographer.

        • hadtomakeaccount

          I DO know that reconstructive surgery can *cause* the nipples to be, ahem, at attention all the time, especially in the first months afterwards.

          • Constant Reader

            Yes, I know a couple of people who had that exact issue for a while after augmentation (thankfully both had the surgery for reasons of aesthetic preferences and not health).

    • imperfectlaura

      I’m okay with all of this…except is she nipping out in some of these pictures?

    • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

      Glad she got the skirt lined. Very appropriate although I personally would have preferred a more Katharine Hepburn line on the trousers.

      • Imasewsure

        Yes I was thinking Hepburn and Lombard rocked those kinds of pants.. These have a touch of the 80’s “elephant pants” style that I was hoping never to see again… 30’s & 40’s YES 80’s NO!!

        • Constant Reader

          That whole outfit is very Melanie Griffith in Working Girl.

    • RussellH88

      Some fit and tit issues aside, I think she looks great. Very appropriate for the event.

    • Nikko Viquiera

      The lighting in these pictures are amazing! She looks like an angel is super expensive, baggy clothes. I think she looks great!

      • SugarSnap108

        She really does look like some glow-y, other-wordly being. I don’t like any of the clothes because they don’t fit her — but *she* looks gorgeous.

    • sugarkane105

      The second outfit just needs a hat, and she’d be a World War II nurse.

    • NMMagpie

      She looks good but the shoulders on that jacket are just too big for her frame.

      I love the ease of her confidence.

    • shirab

      For some reason these outfits felt incomplete to me, and I realized why when I saw the second model with her big folded whateverthatis bag. Angie isn’t carrying any stuff. She has no conference accessories, like a briefcase or a folder or a lanyard or a tote bag of some kind.

      • kimmeister

        I can’t remember the last time I saw a confident lanyard.

        • Grumpy Girl

          Hey wait a second. I rock my lanyard confidently everyday. (hahah)

    • boweryboy

      There are nips and a fabric aplenty in that first look. The second look is what I imagine a nun would wear on a day out of her habit.

      • misstressofsylar

        Coming from someone who spent her formative years educated by nuns, I whole-heartedly second this comment. Except of course for the heels The sisters wore way interesting shoes than those.

    • Capt. Renault

      For some reason, Angie has never been my thing, but seeing her in that first outfit? Wow. More of this, please. Fresh. Confident. Relaxed.

    • MoHub

      Are peaked shoulders a new/revived thing? I hope not. They just look as if the sleeves weren’t set in correctly.

      • decormaven

        That was my first question as well.

    • Anna

      I love the Katharine Hepburn vibe of these looks, especially the first one. I think a cognac leather, chunkier heel, instead of a black pointed-toe pump would’ve balanced the volume of trousers better and she needed to go up a size on the white blazer. It looks quite chic on the model, but a bit sloppy on her (close, but not quite there).

      Perfectly suited to the venue though.

    • MaggieMae

      She is so beautiful, and yet, not exactly stylish. Again, with Angie, I am underwhelmed.

      • Spicytomato1

        Agreed. But I’m starting to think she’s deliberately choosing things that are matronly, or ill-fitting, or conservative to seem more relatable.

    • KateM

      Something about the first outfit makes her look wide…. which is insane. But she looks lovely and appropriate.

    • MoHub

      Kors appears to be totally coasting these days.

    • BLauD

      Something is going on with her makeup in the first look. Her face looks wonky and plastered on, but seems to have been corrected in the second look.

    • Danielle

      Very H&M. Venue appropriate and understated.

    • quiltrx

      Both really pretty and seem right for the situation. I especially like the first outfit…might have added a belt, but that’s a quibble.
      The second jacket doesn’t fit her well (as others have mentioned), but I like the idea of the outfit.

    • IAmJ

      Not loving either look, but they’re salvaged by her radiant smile and overall beauty. Her posture in the second set of pictures is kind of killing me though.

    • http://redheadedwolf.wordpress.com/ Laura Renee

      She’s such a tiny woman, she really needs clothes tailored to her in order not to look drowning in them. When I look at these, instead of being dazzled by her as one should by Angelina Jolie, I worry about her health because I want her to fill them out better.

    • JaymeKay

      I like it. She dresses like a grown up–both age and event appropriate–and sticks with her subdued style.

    • gitchygitchymama

      talbots meets the mother of the bride.

    • NBG

      Those are runway only pants. There’s just too much fabric in them for the real world. You just become one big bolt of wrinkles. and if you’re going to try to bring them into the real world, wear a belt.

      • kimmeister

        The average human can’t even pull off one pleat in a pant, much less three on each side.

    • suzq

      Not sure nipples were the thing to show at a summit on sexual violence, but who am I to say? Maybe that’s a subtle dig at people who believe women “ask for it” by dressing provocatively.

      I would love to see wide pants become a thing, but I’m not sure about the pleats. Seems visually unnecessary. In any case, the pants needed a belt.

      The white outfit speaks to her deep, celebrity purity. It’s a “NOTICE ME, I HAVE SOMETHING IMPORTANT TO SAY” outfit. It’s an anti-burkha.

      • boweryboy

        I agree. The hard-enough-to-cut-glass nipples seemed oddly inappropriate to me given the nature of the event.

      • ShaoLinKitten

        Relieved that I’m not the only person whose eyes were drawn to the nipples. I found them so distracting that I barely noted the outfit. Surely there is a way to avoid that.

        • EveEve

          I wouldn’t assume that she wanted to avoid that. It may have been intentional, it may have been unintentional. Only she knows for sure.

          • ShaoLinKitten

            If you dress all baggy and conservative, except for the diamond sharp nipples, it’s not a huge stretch to assume it’s unintentional, but you’re right. This is Angelina Jolie we’re talking about. Nothing she does is by accident.

    • cat772

      WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON WITH HER LEGS AND FEET?

    • Qitkat

      Ooh, Kate Hepburn vibes in the first outfit. That is the way to style and wear pleated pants. Gorgeous and classic.
      The white suit is lovely on her, simple perfection. For such an event, she has made very wise, flattering choices.

    • http://tvblogster.blogspot.com Boop

      I LOVE HER! Just. Absolutely. Gorgeous. Age appropriate. Event appropriate. This is not a fashion show or red carpet, and she looks stunning.

    • MilaXX

      I’m not liking the first look on her at all. The first look has a modern Katherine Hepburn look on the model and just looks like floppy pants on Angie. The second was is a bit better but she blanded down and already neutral look. Would it have hurt to keep the belt? And someone needs a pair of petals for her boobs.

    • Ozski

      I love the low-key make-up, she is so effortlessly beautiful but she is drowning in these clothes. I wish she would put on 15 lbs, her legs wouldn’t resemble a 70 year-olds. I love the Michael Kors white blouse though.

    • Wink

      Love her in the slacks! The flare of the white skirt makes her legs look like toothpicks. She seems like more of a pencil skirt woman.

      • Spicytomato1

        Yes, a pencil skirt would be stunning.

    • KateShouldBeWorking

      Serving Hepburn realness.

    • marlie

      I’m not in love with the pants in the first look, but both are very “her” and very appropriate.

    • Kent Roby

      I have quibbles, but I can’t bring myself to voice them about a woman who is on a mission to make the world a better place. I do love the lightness of it all after so much dark fierceness for the Maleficent poledance.

    • d4divine

      She is giving serene goddess

    • numenah

      I owned the entire first look in the 70s, and I still love it. The stitched down pleats allow a curvy woman to avoid the bulbous look traditional pleats create. The Hepburn vibe works for me, but a belt would complete the outfit.

    • LadyVimes

      I prefer the second outfit, although I wish she had kept the belt the model has on. It makes it less 1950s nurse and more modern businesswoman.

    • ojosazules

      I don’t know much about make-up, but in the first pictures it seems like she is using it to appear more of a “plain Jane.” Good luck with that, Angie.

    • http://www.bertkeeter.com Bert Keeter

      Neither outfit is her friend!

    • LeeS99

      So I guess we are going to ignore her old woman legs and hands. Now I do believe she has an eating disorder based on all the veins popping.
      Unfortunately, neither outfit is working for her.

      • hadtomakeaccount

        Yes, because neither have anything at all to do with fashion. And shame for your shame-making.

    • somebody blonde

      I doubt that she’s thinner than either of the models, but with the insane amount of extra fabric in both outfits, she looks it. I don’t think that’s a good thing for her. She should probably stay away from these extra-voluminous looks, much as she seems to like them.

    • Therese Bohn

      What she wore here is insignificant; it’s what she’s doing there that matters. More power to her. Rock on, Angie.
      She looks lovely.

    • marlie

      Just a gentle reminder, can we please stop talking about Angie’s hands, legs, and/or feet?

      • boweryboy

        I hear what you’re saying. I’m not body snarking or anything like that, but her legs in the second to last photo was the first thing I noticed. They just don’t look right in the side-by-side comparison with the model.

    • msdamselfly

      Both these outfits are gorgeous. She looks so much better in white than black. Love the pleated pants.

    • frannyprof

      Love the white suit.

    • http://armchairauthor.wordpress.com/ LesYeuxHiboux

      Those pants are insane and I want them real bad. I wish she had either left the neck tie undone in the first look, or rather (because I’m sure that seemed much too sloppy) gone with something a bit more tailored since the pants are so voluminous.

    • alyce1213

      She tends to wear things a bit loose, but both of these are tasteful, appropriate and lovely on her in spite of it.

    • Shelby

      I love both of these looks. My favorite part? The fact that she didn’t wear the pants too long so they gave her elephant feet. Attagirl. :-D

    • GillianHolroyd

      She is glowing, no doubt about it, but I find both these outfits sloppy and unprofessional.

    • SierraDelta

      I don’t care what she wears as long as she focuses attention on sexual violence in conflict.

    • crash1212

      Perfectly understated and appropriate for the event. I kind of love those pants.

    • whaddami

      I love the second outfit especially, but I’m going to go out on a limb and say I’m worried about her. She looks exhausted and like she needs a good meal. MamaW over here makes some good Jambalaya, Ange……feel free to bring Brad — I want to thank you both for all the work you’ve both been doing in New Orleans.

    • ShaoLinKitten

      I hate the nude shoes both on the model and Angie. A shoe in just about any color would have been better. As it stands, they combine with the white outfit to make her look like a nurse or something.

    • Shalhevet

      Bad, bad, bad.

      The first putfit completely obsures her shape and in the second outfit, the combination of the skirt length and shape with the pointy shoes makes her legs look like literal sticks!

      She changed it up… but the result is uglifying a gorgeous woman.

    • RoseJB

      Both looks need the belt.

    • Clydette Wantland

      Must have been cold in there. Nice nips.

    • Abi

      I like the first outfit but would like a belt too. I like the idea behind the second but the jacket needs better fitting.

      Tbh, especially considering the venue of these outfits, I find the amount of consideration given to her nipples in this thread to be a little disquieting. Women have nipples. Sometimes for reasons outside their control they become more prominent. Is that really worthy of all this comment?

    • demidaemon

      She is swimming in those pants. Love the second look, though.

    • e jerry powell

      I was more concerned with the event than the clothes, though.

    • FibonacciSequins

      I would have kept the belt with both outfits. She looks serious and glamorous at the same time, so she’s WERQing it if you ask me.

      I’m thrilled that she’s using her celebrity to draw attention to this issue!

    • lchopalong

      Part of me feels like maybe she purposely wore clothing that wasn’t impeccably fitted. I can see where it’d be easy to want to look more like “normal people” at a serious event like this when you’re first known as a movie star.

    • Joanna

      Whatever her makeup people are doing lately, I like it. It looks a lot less harsh than she’s looked in the past. With her striking features, overdone makeup looks way severe.

      • Garcia Loca

        I know! Soft makeup is the way to go for her.

    • Sweetvegan

      I would’ve loved to see a structured jacket on top of the white flowy blouse. Kors knew that the look needed something streamlined over the whole thing (loose flowy blouse with loose flowy pants), and threw the trench coat over it.

    • Anne

      With the second one I expect her to bust out into some “You Don’t Own Me.” Ba ba ba, ba ba ba, baaaaaaa…

    • Cificap

      Oh good God Lemon. We’re making something she wore to THIS event the subject of flippant fashion critique?

    • MannahattaMamma

      I adore those pants. It’s like an updated Katherine Hepburn (not that Kate the Great needs updating, really).

    • Garcia Loca

      I looooove the pants outfit. But Angie, gurl, you need to put the nipples away. Not everything is a competition with JenJen. Besides, this is a subdued event. And even if you can get away with wearing no bra, they sell those stick on petal thingies for hiding the nips.

    • Raspberry2012

      The first one is way too floaty for her, but I fucking LOVE her in that second suit dress number! GORGEOUS!

    • macwell

      Belt = Perfection.

    • ajch

      For everyone that keeps mentioning her nipples – FYI – when you have a mastectomy and undergo reconstruction, they either make fake nipples or reattach your nipples. The nipples are always erect after that. They are just for aesthetic purposes, not functional.

    • Kikishua

      I’d like to have seen the blazer with the pants. I love the pants. But if they look that messy when the divine Angelina walks, what hope for anyone else!
