Angelina Jolie returned to black-sack glory for ‘Maleficent’ Tokyo photocall


Here are some photos from the Tokyo photocall of Maleficent today/yesterday/tomorrow. I think chronologically, the photocall came after yesterday’s premiere photos…? I covered those yesterday, obviously – you can see them here. Angelina wore a figure-hugging black velvet Versace. For this photocall, Angelina was back to a beloved sack dress. She has a real problem with sack dresses. She needs rehab for sack-addiction. It’s also like she’s giving us a little nod, like, “I know you think I wear too many sack dresses. Suck it.”

Meanwhile, did you know that UK Foreign Secretary William Hague was being criticized for hanging out with Angelina and Brad Pitt and for co-hosting the Global Summit on Sexual Violence in Conflict? It’s true. Some politicos in the UK say that Hague was too busy schmoozing it up with Brangelina and he should have been paying attention to what was going down in Iraq. I think that’s a lazy political complaint – Hague and Jolie scheduled the conference months ago, and it was supposed to garner a lot of attention to often-forgotten or ignored part of warfare, which is sexual abuse and rape. One issue is not any more or less important, you know?

    she’s so much better in leather :)

    • seijidan says:

      shes very fortunate that she has an outstanding face cause she has no style whatsoever

  2. Josephine says:

    Sack or not, I actually love it. She looks comfortable and sophisticated.

  3. Soulsister says:

    I really love the contrast between Angie and Elle. I think that they are both breathtakingly beautiful females.

    • Sabrine says:

      They both look great. That dress on Angelina looks very comfortable.

      • Rooster says:

        Yes! It does look comfortable and that’s what I always go for.

      • FLORC says:

        Comfy is the best route. And being the foman that she is Dame Angie can rock a sack dress. Woman doesn’t have a single bad angle.

      • eva says:

        I love that she wears what she wants and Doesn’t GAS what the fashion critics say.

      • Trashaddict says:

        Angie looks too thin. May be she’s one of those people who forget to eat when they’re busy, but she is looking unhealthy. Her leg is only as big around as her costar’s arm, for Godsakes!
        I am concerned, she is not looking good.

    • homegrrrl says:

      Poor Ang, her hair is falling out along the front hairline, and this is common after surgeries because of toxic anesthesia, etc. She looks very thin.

  4. Lori says:

    she looks awesome and is never upstaged by her clothes!

  5. lower-case deb says:

    a fitted sack?

    anyway, Elle looks way cute… only not the shoes. no hell no.

  6. Faye says:

    . . .her hair and face look good?

    Maybe she and Elle have some kind of pact going on where only one of them is allowed to wear a good dress per appearance. Yesterday Angelina won with the tight black dress, while Elle was in those awful white princess-themed drapes. Today Angelina wears the curtains, while Elle gets the cute dress.

  7. Soulsister says:

    I think that you have to have a heart of lead to not think that tackling war time rape is an important issue.

  8. lisa2 says:

    Actually the Summit was scheduled and planned over a Year ago. How could anyone know what was going to happen over a year ago. He was not photographed with Angie and Brad outside of sitting next to them at the event.

    I guess something has to be found.

    I actually think Angie looks absolutely amazing in this dress. Again she wears Black. People need to either accept or get over it. She doesn’t care what anyone thinks about what she wears. If she was always talking fashion and holding herself as a fashion Icon I think the over the top comments about her cloths would be fair game. She never talks about fashion outside of who she is wearing for a particular event.

    anyway I’m a bit sad that the Maleficent Promotion ends today. She has nothing else to promote so it should be a dry spell for some time..

  9. Cecilia says:

    I don’t like either of these dresses. The dress doesn’t fit AJ correctly & her all around styling looks really bad this time — even her hair looks flat & lifeless. Poor Elle looks like she is wearing a Toddler’s dress. This is a miss for both of them.

    • Bennred says:

      Awww poor us :( we weren’t expecting a positive comment from you Cecilia.

      • Rooster says:

        Hahaha we know who she loves fawning over. And who she can’t resist saying negative things about ;) that’s how she rolls.

    • buell says:

      I agree… AJ’s face looks orange and her legs look grey. I don’t think this is a flattering look at all. And Elle’s dress looks like something a baby doll would wear. Not a good choice for either gal.

      And I’ve been reading this site for years and will comment now and then so I’m confused on why people throw shade at someone for giving their honest opinion? Maybe I should just chalk it up as what people do on the internet and slink back into my non commenting mode.

      • Rooster says:

        Yeah I also read this site regularly but hardly comment. But then honest opinion is never saying something positive about someone but always being negative about that person every damn time doesn’t it get tiring????

      • Leslie says:

        @Rooster good question!
        +1 to you comment also

      • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

        I think it’s the lighting–Angelina’s face/legs. Elle’s are the exact same way.

      • Ennie says:

        Yes, VC, but for some people only AJ gets the “bad” of everything, even when another person in the same situation is standing right next to her.
        I recall Cecilia being kind of nice in the AJ posts for a short while, it was worth noting that, but then everything is back to “normal”.
        Funny how men are never attacked for always wearing black suits to their affairs, I understand AJ for trying not to be fussy. I bet if she usually worn colors or styles, some people would find some other faults in it.

    • FLORC says:

      You said her all around styling looks really bad “this time”. Have you ever said her styling was good? Your post implies there’s a contrasting statement where you thought her styling was good at some point. So let’s taalk bout that time where you liked Dame Angie’s styling:) It will help silence these critics of yours too.

      • Cecilia says:

        I have complimented AJ on her pretty face & occasionally on a particular style but I generally am not fond of her fashion choices. I also complimented her on her performance in Maleficent. She MADE that movie — without her, it would have bombed.

      • FLORC says:

        Agreed. I’ll say it a million times and then some more. The woman does not have a bad angle. And her wardrobe choices are a bit repetative.
        Outfits that aren’t black like that emerald dress and a white angora long sleeve dress. Ugh, perfect! The black has become played out with me though. She looks great, but can look better. That said I do love her attitude to rock a black sack.

        And her role here was awesome. I go back and forth on liking her more as a actress or producer.

        I don’t see you as a h8r here at all:) but i’m not familiar with your posts.
        Seems balanced enough.

      • Cecilia says:

        Oh FLORC…I forgot about the white angora. I loved that on her. I remember offering advice on that thread as to how to keep angora from shedding.

    • Esti says:

      To be fair to Cecilia, the opposite is also true: there are a ton of people on here who gush over every Angie post and have something negative to say on every Jen post. Most of us have celebs we like and celebs we’re less fond of, but we all still comment on those posts. Clearly most people here love Angie; you don’t need to go after one of her few detractors on every post, the woman is doing just fine on her own.

      And for what it’s worth, I agree that this isn’t Angie’s best look. Her hair IS flat and lifeless, and her face is a different color than her legs.

      • MaryQ says:

        Cecilia is always positive about Jen and always negative about AJ/BP. She can give AJ a positive comment 1 out of 10times but always goes off on Brad. He is dumb as rock, not articulate, not ageing well, looks like a douche in glasses, has had work done, a hobo blah blah blah. Between one would think Brad dumped her and not Aniston carrying So much dislike and negativity about something that didn’t happen to you isn’t healthy. Between why is everyone calling Cecilia out? Its pretty telling! Is she the only one on this site?

      • Bennred says:

        @MaryQ I wish there was provision to like your comment. You said it perfectly well.

      • lisa2 says:

        Why was that observation not made over the last 7 or so years when the VAST majority of comments were negative. I have been reading and posting here for years. And I can honestly say there was a time not too long ago when there were just a hand full of us supporting this woman and fighting hard against the daily negative comments. During that time I don’t recall anyone of the “casual” posters coming forward to ask why all the negative comments about Angie and the positive ones about JA. That slant in the comments was just fine. Never a complaint when 90% of the comments were negative. Not just negative but vile.

        But now that it is not that way those posters that were use to being on the 90% side are not the majority anymore and now it is a BIG problem.. Always the finger pointed to a fan that gives an opinion about another’s opinion.

        Where were you all before? Why so silent then and so vocal now..

        I find that very strange. Because the main problem some of you have is that there are more positive comments about Angelina.. Why is that so bad? NOW

      • Cecilia says:

        Thanks Esti


        MaryQ, I have no idea what you are trying to say.

      • Dorothy4 says:

        Thanks So much @Lisa2
        I have been a reader of celebitchy since 2008 and my goodness it was very bad. Angelina was hated with a passion that cannot be explained it was terrible on celebitchy and she had very few supporters back then it was So bad I stopped clicking on stories about Angelina and Brad.
        And people are complaining now? Why didn’t they do that back then? When the hatred was out of this earth!
        I don’t know why people get So personal about something that didn’t happen to them? Wow!

      • Esti says:

        I don’t have a “problem” with positive comments about Angelina. I like Angie! I just think it’s ridiculous to call out a single commenter for making negative comments about Angie when everyone else has celebs they make negative comments about. Is FLORC not allowed to comment about Kate any more because she’s almost always negative about her? Am I not allowed to comment about Hiddleston or Cumberbatch?

        Maybe people were saying “vile” things about Angie in the past or on other sites, but that still isn’t a reason to jump all over people making gentle negative comments about her now.

      • MaryQ says:

        @Cecilia you don’t say! I bet you do.
        And So do others on here.

      • darkdove says:

        is not just about Cecilia is the fact she seems to always be here and hardly misses the opportunity to say something negative, I dont like that Actress she loves a lot and I do make comments about her but I am not on her all the time and I hardly make more than 2 comments on her.

      • lisa2 says:

        my comment was more in general terms. Whenever a fan says something we always get the you are a loonie or you can’t handle negative. Maybe the fans are more sensitive. More so than others because those of us that have been here a long time or just fans dropping in, have had to battle the hate. Let me give you examples of the hypocrisy. . JA has had near 8 years of positive comments and media support since her divorce. But the minute there was the hint of negative her fans acted like babies. The Why are people picking on her. She is harmless. She hasn’t done anything to anyone. on and on. When there was a question about her relationship with Theroux when it started her fans turned that around and said that the only relationship that mattered was marriage. You cant’ cheat if you are single. it was Bivens fault for staying with a man the didnt’ marry her.. Complete opposite of what they accused Angelina of regarding Laura Dern. Then Angie’s ring was too big and it was gross that the diamond was so big.. but then JA ring was fine because she deserved a big ring after all her pain. Relationships can start after a break up if you are JA. .but Brad was suppose to wait for years before he moved on. When Brad/Angie are on the RC it is PR because they live separate lives.. but JA/JT are a couple in love because they are supporting each other. Angie was estranged from her father because of a hateful letter he wrote to her. She was a heartless bitch for not leting him in her life and seeing her children. JA cut her mother off for writing a book and calling her average; that was fine because parents have to know they can’t hurt ther children and be invited back in. Brad/Angie are only together for their children.. JA/JT together for love only.

        see that is what the fans were fighting for years. And the poster you defended has posted those contradictions on many threads. The long time posters remember and know the history that you maybe unfamiliar with or are choosing to ignore.

        Are fans sometimes over sensitive and too quick to react.. Yes.. I’m guilty of that too. But we know comments that are throwing shade based on posters we know who strongly dislike them Brad/Angie. so if a fan calls them out maybe there is a reason you can’t understand unless you have been a part of that 10% over the years.

      • darkdove says:

        all you say is true Lisa 2 I still see it now and I think Aniston fans are toxic to her.

      • FLORC says:

        People tend to gush about Angie on her threads because they’re not just about relationships and movies. It’s our little intake of world events here.
        Her humanitarium work is truly amazing. Aniston’s threads are mostly the same tabloid covers about relationships, pregnancy speculation, and jealousy/woe as me. That becomes grating on people. They lash out.

        And I think I need to resate my stance here.
        Dame Angie seems to be a woman with a cause. She works with a passion fueled goal. She has a wel adjusted family and doesn’t really have any missteps when it comes to how she deals with the press, paps, and work.

        Aniston is a mogul! The woman put seed money in all the right companies and has lucrative spokesperson contracts with many of them. As well as investing in properties for quick rehabs and flips that land her millions in short time. She doesn’t need to work. She could live forever on royalty investments. Considering her acting career is heavily supported and often panned without a large and talented cast with her in a supporting role she must like the attention. I say that with the constant tabloid covers that are only on PR approved mags.

        If she was in it for the love of acting I think she’d do better. And her many projects she claims to want to produce only serve as future projects that never get a date. I’ve been waiting on Goree Girls for forever!

        Though I have a bias it seems it’s because I respect 1 for their work and I grow tired of the other reaching for a goal that has long passed. I do stronglly respect Anistons Mogul status. She just isn’t a star and her repetative tactics for her Friends fame are tiresome.

  10. Nope says:

    I had a similar one exactly 30 years ago.

    • Ennie says:

      Yes, fashion runs in circles. Every x number of years, something comes back.
      Remember the low rise jeans with the bell bottoms? very hippy and then came back in the nineties/ early aughts, and almost everyone ended with a muffin top!

  11. Jaderu says:

    If he was schmoozing with any run of the mill “throw a check at it” type celebrity (side-eye to Leo) than yeah I could see the critisism. But this is Angelina Jolie. She actually works for and works hard for this issue. She doesn’t just talk…she walks.

  12. MrsBPitt says:

    Angie looks amazing! Not everyone could get away with this dress, but, of course, Angie can make almost anything look fanstastic! Yes, even a sack! lol

  13. Mrs. Darcy says:

    I LOVE sack dresses, but this one is not good. The draping, the tight hem, it’s just not sacky ENOUGH imo. If you’re going to go sack, you need to commit fully or go home. This just ends up looking kind of 80′s. There are so many great designer sacks, why this one Angelina?

  14. Andrea1 says:

    Angie looks good. I love the dress and would love to have it in another colour say blue. She looks radiant and am So happy for the success of maleficent.

  15. floretta50 says:

    I like the dress, the cut and the way it falls my kind of style i can see this dress in a flower pattern or many other colors outside of black, that’s a good dress.

  16. JH says:

    That’s one amazing sack dress! And that FACE- she’s so beautiful.
    Her hair and make-up also looks incredible.

  17. eliza says:

    I actually love Jolie’s dress.

  18. Maria says:


    I’m finding the pale legs distracting given her arms /face 😒

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      I’m thinking that it’s a lighting thing–look at Elle. Her legs are grey, but her arms and face are ‘tanned’….so maybe there’s a headlight that covers only half their bodies??? It’s not a tan, that’s for sure, and it’s not make up either.

  19. Sherlockapple says:

    Love Angie; don’t love this dress. It screams early 90′s and the material looks low-grade. The fit is horrible–even for a loose fitting dress, it looks two to three sizes too large. Love her hair and shoes!!! Loved Maleficent too :) .

  20. Amy Tennant says:

    How did we get so lucky to have a JA post and an AJ post on a Tuesday? :) Thanks, Kaiser!

  21. Janet says:

    Hate the dress. C’mon, Angie, you KNOW you can do better than this!

  22. shelley says:

    I absolutely love this dress on Angelina. It’s drapes beautifully. It’s sack-ish, but not a true sack.

  23. Ennie says:

    hhahaha AJ in platform shoes! she had to wear them bc of Elle, I had never seen her is shoes so high!

  24. Ice Queen says:

    I don’t love it nor hate it…

  25. Camille (The Original) says:

    I’m with Lainey’s take on this dress and I like it on her. She has the body to pull this dress off. It’s a different shape than her ‘normal’ sack type dresses, more modern.

  26. Camille (The Original) says:

    So true. Both women should be left out of each others threads. They have nothing to do with each other. At all.

  27. SmashingBlouse says:

    I think Jolie’s dress is shapless and Fanning’s is too precious.

  28. thebutlerdidit says:

    Elle Fanning loves to dress from the “What About Prom, Blaine?” catalog. I guess this one is so-so. St. Ang looks like St.Ang. That’s her style, so whatevs. I wish she was meatier, but I’m not her, and she doesn’t give a fu..hoot. Hague wasn’t going to be helpful in the Iraq situation, the ppl who don’t understand politics annoy me. He could be important in regards to Ang’s causes, so STFU nosey bellies.

  29. Fan says:

    She can wear anything and still looks beautiful and elegant.

  30. Francis says:

    She’s a beautiful woman, one of a kind beauty. I just find her face so striking. Gorgeous. She can wear anything, it does not matter because her face is so glorious.

  31. serena says:

    Classy and elegant, she should have added some jewelry though.

    Elle is cute as always but that dress does nothing for her, beside washing her out.

  32. Maritza says:

    The dress adds pounds to her thin frame so it actually was a good choice for her, she looks great!
