Angelina Jolie – actress, director, Goodwill Ambassador, fashion icon and new wife! Gone is the goth girl who once smooched her brother at an awards show and married Billy Bob Thornton. New husband Brad Pitt and six children Maddox, Paz, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne, and Knox have changed her for the better – down to the color of her clothing. Angie has grown up, but more than that, her life has turned positive, vibrant, and yes, you could say magical. It’s obvious by what she says, what she does and by the bright colors she wears.
In the past, Angelina was a huge fan of black. Heck, she still is, if the Maleficent has anything to say about it. “It’s utilitarian,” she tells Vogue. “I like to get up so every pair of pants goes with every top, every dress goes with every shoe. I’ve a very tiny closet. Brad’s always laughing at me,” she says. Well, we do like the black, Angie, but we’re even bigger fans of color. So much so that in honor of Brad and Angie’s recent marriage, we’d like to celebrate by mentioning the 5 amazing times the Academy Award winner actually wore colors besides black.
1. Angelina Jolie in Green Atelier Versace
The dress she wore to the 2011 Golden Globes was everything, and for that it deserves the #1 spot on my list. Perhaps I’m biased because I’m a huge fan of emerald green but the sparkle of the Swarovski crystals and the pointy shoulders and the way Angelina looks in it… everything about this Atelier Versace gown is just magical.
2. Angelina Jolie in Metallic Elie Saab Couture
What would you call this color? Nude? Metallic? It certainly isn’t a color we’re used to seeing on Angelina Jolie. In a time where Angie was all about black Saint Laurent, it was nice to see her step out of her comfort zone and wear this sparkly Elie Saab number. And of course, being a little bit subtly sexy is never a bad thing.
3. Angelina Jolie in Red Jenny Packham
Who knew Angelina Jolie was packin’ red Jenny Packham? All puns aside, this red one-shoulder gown was a HUGE departure for the black-wearing star. The dress is called Red Flame and she sure was a siren in this number.
4. Angelina Jolie in Yellow Emanuel Ungaro
Jaws dropped when Angelina Jolie wore yellow Emanuel Ungaro to the premiere of Oceans ’13 in 2006. She had started to make red carpet appearances with Brad and suddenly, there was not as much black. She was growing up, and glowing too! As if to say…here I am and I’m making a statement! Not the depressing kind.
5. Angelina Jolie in Forest Green Max Azria Atelier
In her repertoire of pregnancy style, thankfully Angelina Jolie did not choose to wear too much black when she was pregnant with twins Knox and Vivienne. However, she did chose a lovely green Max Azria Atelier gown for the Kung Fu Panda premiere during the 2008 Cannes Film Festival. And what a gorgeous woman in color she made!
