SACK SLEEVES. That’s how Angelina Jolie’s need for sackiness has manifested itself today. A beautiful charcoal grey suit which would have fit her like a dream, save for the sack sleeves. Angelina is so funny. Anyway, these are some photos from Day 4 of the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict, with Brad Pitt joining Jolie for the second day in a row. Superficial comment: I don’t like her hairstyle here. Too “old” and mumsy. Also: I know some people will start yelling about how she looks exhausted. I imagine she IS exhausted. Plus, she’s been crying a lot during the summit. She probably cried off all of her makeup.
Yesterday, Angelina was invited to Clarence House where she met Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall. They had a nice chat:
Camilla and the Oscar winning actress met at Clarence House to discuss their separate campaigns to aid rape victims. The two women have worked in recent years to highlight the issue of sexual violence and they were joined by Foreign Secretary William Hague.
The discussions covered the common ground between the women’s campaigns, with the pair sharing ideas. Camilla, 66, has visited rape crisis centres across the UK and spearheaded a scheme to provide victims with toiletries after undergoing forensic examinations. The Duchess of Cornwall came up with the idea of providing rape survivors with toiletries after speaking to women during a visit to a rape crisis centre in Derbyshire. Last year she said she hoped the project would help people feel better at a traumatic time in their lives. The two-year pilot scheme will see shower and bath products donated by firms collected into wash bags and given to victims.
On one side, I’m happy to see that at least one member of the royal family thought it would be a good idea to participate in the Global Summit. On the other side… how is this an issue that only ONE member of the royal family can get behind? It would have been great to see Prince Harry, William, Kate, Charles, or the York princesses get involved too. It’s not like being against rape is a controversial position.
