Angelina Jolie in black Atelier Versace in Japan: at least it’s not a sack dress?


Here are some photos of Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning at the Tokyo premiere of Maleficent today (yesterday? tomorrow?) at the Ebisu Garden Place. This really wasn’t a god day for fashion p0rn from either woman. Shall we start with Angelina? Sure. Angelina wore a fancy version of a black tube dress. On the plus side, it’s not a sack. On the minus side, it’s a black tube dress and she has worn versions of this dress a million times before. COME ON, ANGIE. I mean, Dame Angelina. The dress is Atelier Versace, and I like the “peaked” neckline, although I’m pretty sure that she wore nearly the same (non-peaked) dress to one of Brad’s premieres a few years ago, and it was also Versace. The House of Versace: providing sack dresses and tube dresses to Angelina Jolie since 2001.

As for Elle, she wore Alexander McQueen Fall 2014. Can you believe that this is a current design from the House of McQueen? Ugh. This looks like a gigantic doily!!!!! With feathers on the hem. Nooooooo.

As for how the film is doing – Maleficent has already cracked the half-a-billion mark. According to Box Office Mojo, the film has made $521,580,000, making it the best box office showing of Angelina’s career. Good for her.

    I liked Elle’s dress its very victorian nightwear . And why is Brenton Thwartes not doing any promo, wasn’t this suppose to be his breakout role?

  2. Virgilia Coriolanus says:

    Elle’s dress is seriously the most god-awful, ugliest thing I’ve ever seen. It looks like an ugly shower curtain. WHO thinks that looks good?

    And WOW! Angelina looks sexy…..I love that dress….it looks like it should be more for a date night, or a night time event, I think–but it fits with Maleficent….nod to her horns?

  3. mayamae says:

    Elle’s dress looks like a combo of virginal wedding night negligee, and Loretta Lynn stage dress circa 1971.

    I rarely like anything Angie wears, but she doesn’t hold herself up as a fashion icon, so it doesn’t bother me.

  4. Abbott says:

    It looks like Taylor Swift’s pajama closet volcanically exploded over Elle.

  5. aims says:

    Angie looks classic and lovely as ever. Elle’s dress is the most ugliest dress I have seen in a long time. It’s a disaster.

  6. Faye says:

    Both of them are very on point for their characters. At least Angelina looks chic, though I would love to see her in a color.

  7. sure says:

    Jolie can pass for Elle’s mother.

  8. Jaderu says:

    Elle looks like a princess being held captive by a dragon in a remote castle waiting for a pasty prince to come rescue her.
    Angie looks sexy. Classy Sexy IMO

      @Jaderu, who wrote: “Elle looks like a princess being held captive by a dragon in a remote castle waiting for a pasty prince to come rescue her.

      Which is the look I think they were going for with her dress. And I agree with you! :)

  9. Esti says:

    Is that the same white powder on the top of Angelina’s dress that was all over her face/legs at previous events? She obviously has a great makeup artist in general, so I don’t understand why the powder keeps going wrong.

    How is it possible for someone to be this beautiful T____T

  11. Isa says:

    Normally I complain about Angelina’s black dresses but I love this one! She looks amazing and idk what’s going on underneath the dress but it gives her an hourglass figure that she normally doesn’t have.

    I saw maleficient last weekend with our daughter and we LOVED it. Even my husband loved it and talked about how good it was

  12. Mikeyangel says:

    I like them both. Guess I don’t have good fashion sense. Although not a fan of Elle showing so much cleavage, guess her covering EVERYTHING else kind of makes up for it. She isn’t large cheated but I don’t like seeing young girls bits exploited.

  13. PunkyMomma says:

    McQueen must be spinning. Elle’s dress looks like she should be sleepwalking around Dracula’s castle. But I love the peaked tube on Jolie. Why give up on what works for you?

  14. Eve says:

    I like the dress — it gives her a defined waist (The Jolie’s torso is kinda “boxy”).

    Lovely face (as usual).

  15. Renee says:

    I think that Angelina looks great!!! The dress gives her an hourglass figure despite her slim hips and she looks pretty and happy. I like her understated earrings as well. Her shoes I am not a fan of but I like that they match. Elle’s dress I am not so crazy about but, I guess she is a kid and I can think of many things I wore at that age that make me cringe now to think of. Plus, all of her bits aren’t hanging out, yay Elle??

  16. Maria says:


    She’s finally wearing something with a cut that does her body justice (I also liked that black leather dress while hating it as well because of the cut, lol).

    She looks good.

  17. Eleonor says:

    Alexander McQueen is spinning in his grave.

  18. eliza says:

    I don’t hate the McQueen. Needs to be a bit more fitted but it is interesting and appropriate for the occasion.

    I have seen the Versace before. It is nice. Not exceptional.

  19. The Original G says:

    You know, when people look at Angie’s photos in the future she’s never going to look dated. She’ll look classic.

    I think Elle’s dress is a bit whimsy for the film and I give her a pass.

  20. teri says:

    Angelina looks beautiful. Congrats to all for a wonderful movie.

  21. Anna Scott says:

    Where is the rest of the cast? Were Jolie and Fanning the only actors starring in this movie. Very strange promotion. As far as clothes, I think it’s in the contract that the young one has to look “innocent” while the older one the opposite.

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      They are the two leads…..maybe the studio didn’t want to pay for any of the other actors to promote, especially since they aren’t all that famous or well known. It’s good business to send out the most recognizable faces (as well as them being the leads). Plus, the movie has been out for nearly a month in the rest of the world–so this is probably just some last minute promotion, where they don’t need everyone.

      The other actors were at the comic cons/ press interviews and premieres–in LA.

    • lisa2 says:

      I don’t think it is a strange promotion at all. Who exactly do you think the 2500 people are there to see. This is Angie’s film/w Elle. She (Angie) is the big star. The film is about her so yes she is the one that shoulders the promotion. If the film had failed it would have been called Angie failure..

      so let her enjoy the success.

    • KIm1 says:

      I have only seen Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt promoting EOT .

  22. amanda says:

    does Dame Angelia have a new tattoo of a dragon or something by her wrist in the above photo?

    i think the neckline looks great on her.

  23. The Original Mia says:

    Angelina looks amazing to me. Less said about Elle’s dress, the better.

  24. Andrea1 says:

    Angie looks sexy and classy and I agree that this is how her clothes should be tailored because of her boxy shape. She looks very sweet. A big NO to Ellie’s dress wtf is that??? Well I do know they are dressing for their characters but there are lovely princess gowns out there. And yay Angie is slaying the box office now looking beyond $600m.

  25. Hissyfit says:

    I love Elle’s dress! It’s very charming.

    As for Jolie, the dress is nothing special but the custom fit surely did give her that amazing hour glass figure. With that gorgeous face, you don’t really need to look at any part of her body.

  26. serena says:

    Though Elle’s outfit seems more like a super fancy night-gown, I should say its appropriate for the Aurora’s theme she is going with.

    Angie is stunning as always but she could do better with her dress.

  27. Paige says:

    Love Angie’ s dress. Elle’ s dress not so much but at least it fits with the movie.

  28. zut alors! says:

    I think Angelina looks great! Her smoky eye makeup is gorgeous; wish I could replicate it. Glad to see Maleficent doing so well at the box office, must be some of that good karma working in her favor. I’m thinking it will reach $600 million in the next 2 weeks once it opens in Japan. I expect she’s going to be super busy in the next few months readying Unbroken for its X-mas day release. I wish her nothing but continued success and good health.

  29. Luna says:

    Kaiser, you crack me up! As soon as I saw the headline of the article on my tumblr feed, without knowing the source, and it said “…at least it’s not a sack dress?” I knew it was you.

    I love me some fashion porn, and sometimes Angie’ll take risks on the red carpet, which is awesome, but there’s no denying she’s a creature of habit! Think about it, that just makes the times she decides to go out of her comfort zone even more special (“ZOMG SHE’S WEARING WHITE”). And there’s no denying she looks stunning no matter what. Me, I liked this dress a lot, but I love me some classic pieces – and I don’t mind she wears black so much but I do like form-fitting stuff better than I do the “sack dresses”.

    As for Elle, she looks like she’s wearing her grandma’s drapes from her tea room in 1897.

  30. Lonnie Tinks says:

    Elle’s dress is gorgeous. That’s all.

  31. mil says:

    Omg I can’t believe nobody mentioned how SKELETAL Angie look! (WHat) does she eat?

  32. Midnight says:

    Angelina looks amazing. Hair and makeup are appropriate. No way on earth one woman should be that beautiful. No wonder Brad always manages to show her off when they’re together on the red carpet. Elle’s dress is age appropriate and I think she looks wonderful. I wouldn’t change a thing on either one of them.

  33. starrywonder says:

    I must have no fashion sense since I loved Elle’s dress too. She looked like a Princess to me which is what I think she was going for. Angie looked really good. Loved the point to her dress.

  34. Fan says:

    Angelina is still the most beautiful and stunning woman in the world. No one can compete with her beauty up to now.

  35. Janet says:

    I love Dame Angie’s dress, but why is Elle Fanning wearing Miz Ellen’s lace po’teers?
