We’re used to seeing Angelina Jolie work her signature sophisticated style in chic but grown up gowns and shifts from designers like L’Wren Scott and Giorgio Armani. So we took a double take when we clocked Angie wearing this floor skimming dress and long cape from the Saint Laurent Spring Summer 2013 finale. Sporting the witchy two-piece at the 4th Annual Women of The World Summit in New York last night, the soon to be Mrs Jolie-Pitt most certainly upped her cool credentials.

Offering a low key, bohemian vibe, the Saint Laurent chocolate brown chiffon dress with a lace-up front, embellished with tassels teamed with the black, flowing chiffon cape was a clear departure for Angelina, although the palette is very much suited to her tastes – she’s often been pictured in earthy browns and taupes. But Hedi Slimane’s 70s rock star look brings a new fashion forward edge to Angie’s wardrobe.
Indeed this has been a great week for Mr Slimane, with Angie’s sartorial patronage coming hot on the heels of Kate Moss working his chic fringed suede jacket and countless A-listers sporting his debut It-bag for the Saint Laurent label, the Duffle.
So could this be the beginning of a beautiful ‘A-lister/Designer' relationship? Might we be seeing Angelina in more pieces from Saint Laurent? Perhaps a sharp tuxedo or a grungey slip from Hedi's new A/W 2013-14 collection? Or could we be spotting Angie on Hedi’s front row come next Paris Fashion Week? If we stretch our imaginations, might we also read that Angelina’s choice of Slimane as designer could point to a closer collaboration between the two – especially as we’ve heard Angie is in the market for a wedding dress? We can but dream!
