Angelina Jolie’s uncanny ability to wear what looks like the same floor-length black dress to every premiere leaves fashion watchers wondering how she’ll make her latest promo tour stylistically interesting. Remember when Bridget Foley of fashion bible WWD described her wardrobe as without ‘a speck of imagination’, par exemple? Well, yesterday Angelina challenged her critics by going all experimental on us with IN-BUILT GLOVES! Oh yes.
At last night's Berlin premiere of ‘The Tourist’, Angie arrived wearing this knee length dress teamed with classic courts and Brad Pitt. Okay, so it’s another black number but we love the sumptuous velvet and this is Versace, darhlings. The problem is, it comes off a little...nutsy. Granted, the A-lister is staying true to her gothic oeuvre, and a December night in Germany is certainly a chilly one, but is she reminding anyone else of an evil villain, kinky Batman stylee? Or, arguably scarier, Janet Jackson in the Nineties? At some angles, she even looks like a dismembered head and shoulders, see:
Oh, the creepiness! * shudders *
So we want to hear YOUR thoughts on this unusual ensemble. Has Angelina committed an unforgivable fashion crime? (at least she won’t leave fingerprints) Or is this an elegant look that fits Ange like a, er, glove? Please help us decide by thrashing it out in the box below...
