Angelina Jolie’s SAG dress by Max Azria didn’t look bad, but it did little to enhance her beauty or flatter her figure. Her stylist, Jen Rade, told Us Weekly that Angelina wore it backward, not because it was Opposite Day in the Pitt-Jolie household, but because she wanted to make the dress “more blouson.” At the Golden Globes before that, she wore a similarly blouson Versace dress. We didn’t even remember what it looked like until we revisited the photo, and we spent at least three hours watching Golden Globes–related programming that Sunday (couldn’t make it through the entire ceremony — Ryan Seacrest and Miley Cyrus wore us out). Angie can wear simple dresses and be memorable. She’s gorgeous — it’s not like she needs eight pounds of eyeliner and a second skin of Swarovskis (no judgment, Beyoncé — you do your thing), but we would like to see something slightly more interesting at the Oscars. She can make it easy on herself and wear that dress front-to-back. Recession chic! Because she purchases these gowns, clearly.
