If Angelina Jolie had a signature style, it would be her penchant for black dresses.  Angelina Jolie made a major style statement at the 2018 BAFTA Awards in a custom menswear-inspired Saint Laurent Paris ensemble that defined undone sophistication.

Angelina Jolie will tell you that she always wears black because it’s ‘utilitarian’ but we know better – it’s because she looks so darn good in it. Nobody wears a black dress better than Angie (very often with Brad Pitt as an accessory) and for proof you need look no further than the anything-but-basic leather Versace ballgown she wore to the Los Angeles premiere of her new movie Maleficent; Full-skirted dress with sheer sleeves and embroidered accents she wore to the Governor’s Ball last year – where she received an honorary Oscar – was also by Versace.

Angelina made her first big ticket appearance after telling the world about her double mastectomy at the London premiere of partner Brad Pitt’s film World War Z last year, stunning in custom-made Saint Laurent.

She steps out in an off-the-shoulder, velvet Versace black dress at the Berlin premiere of The Tourist.
