Angelina Jolie wore silver Versace & red lips to the Annie Awards: lovely or meh?

The Directors Guild of America Awards were held this weekend in LA. Angelina Jolie was not invited, nor did she attend. Instead, she went to the Annie Awards, the awards show recognizing achievements in animation. One of the headlines from the Oscar nominations announcement was that Jolie was “snubbed” for Best Foreign Film for First They Killed My Father. But it’s worth noting that Jolie also executive produced The Breadwinner, the animated short film about a young girl in Afghanistan who disguises herself as a boy to work and provide for her family. The Breadwinner is up for an Oscar, and it picked up an award at the Annies.

Angelina brought her daughters Shiloh and Zahara to the awards show, and she also attended with the filmmakers and the child actress, Saara Chaudry, who voices the lead role. Seeing Angelina stand next to children just reminds me of how small Angelina really is – she seems a lot shorter than people think, and she’s still very slender. Anyway, Angelina and her girls looks wonderful and happy. I’m sad that Jolie wore a gown in this nothingburger shade of creamy-silver, but I love her red lips. This gown is Versace.

Also: Angelina is really leaning into children’s films more and more, which is a smart career move. She’ll be doing the Maleficent sequel with Disney, and she’s doing voice work (for Disney again) on The One and Only Ivan. Isn’t it sort of funny that twenty years ago, Angelina was a Hollywood hellraiser, a wild child who loved knives and danger and eating men’s souls, and now she’s one of the go-to actresses for children’s films?

    She looks beautiful. I do agree that the gown in a different color would have been prettier. Perhaps a gorgeous, hunter green?

  2. Tiffany says:

    I love her voice work on the King Fu Panda films. So much that I would love for her and Jack Black to do a live action film together. The promotion for those films would be fantastic.

    On a superficial, Saara Chaudry is absolutely adorable.

  3. BitingPanda says:

    The slightly different tones from bodice to skirt is making my eye twitch. Other than that, they look fabulous and happy.

  4. Dttimes2 says:

    Daily Mail’s original article had Shiloh identified as her son 😒

  5. Valiantly Varnished says:

    I love the dress. Angelina and I are the same height – 5’7”. Which isnt small (it’s above average height), but isn’t super tall either.

  6. HH says:

    The gown is pretty, but it washes her out. However, with a face like that who’s looking at the gown? I’m glad her health has fully recovered and she’s enjoying life more because she has that “stunning” quality back to her face. Throughout last year I remember her looking really pretty, but she had a lost a vibrancy about her.

  7. Shannon says:

    I might be in the minority here, but I really don’t care for her in red lips. Her lips are so striking anyway, this always gives me a ‘blow-up doll’ vibe. But in general I’m not a big fan of red lips. Otherwise, though, she looks amazing. She’s really been killing it lately, good for her!

  8. Evie says:

    Angelina, Shiloh and Zahara all look terrific. I like Angie’s dress and she looks tall to me — not 6′ tall but 5′ 7″ which is her correct height. She’s probably wearing 3″ heels as well. Shiloh resembles a young Jon Voigt. And both girls look healthy and happy.

    • KBB says:

      Yeah, maybe it’s because I’m 5’1, but 5’7 is very tall to me (I don’t think she is quite 5’7 but close enough.) I mean I don’t think anyone thinks she’s like Nicole Kidman or anything, but she’s probably 5’9.5-5’10 in heels and that is very tall for a woman.

  9. sparrow2 says:

    Do not care for AJ’s gown at all. However, how sweet does Saara Chaudry look? She is dressed appropriately for the event & looks so lovely.

  10. Adele Dazeem says:

    She looks healthier. The few extra pounds she has added look great. She definitely looked like she didn’t feel well a while back. Glad to see she is getting her mojo back, both in body, fashion, red lips (lol) and in career. That which doesn’t kill us makes us stronger. I’m ready for a full on Angelina renaissance !

  11. Adele Dazeem says:

    Random observation/question; it looks to me like she has not removed Brad’s coordinates from her shoulder. True? I don’t know tattoo etiquette but I am guessing since he’s the father of her children she’s not going to remove it a la Billy Bob, right?

  12. Alright says:

    She looks good these days… watched her movie on Netflix I swear she was robbed of a nomination as best picture or best director.
    She definitely has a future as director.

  13. Dr. Mrs. The Monarch says:

    It has pockets…so dreamy. She looks stunning lately and the kids are all blossoming into stunners too.

  14. minx says:

    Love it, and love fancy dresses that have pockets.

  15. Justme says:

    Dress would have been nicer in a bright color, still beautiful despite her extra thin frame. I would love to see her change her hair style though, she’s been wearing it exact same way for 15 years and she used to change it more (remember he blond short hair!!) beuatiful but at 40, needs a makeover, something to frame that beautiful face better an be more 2018.

    • minx says:

      I would like it a little shorter. I wonder if she just likes the longer hair because she can tie it in a ponytail when she’s with her kids and not fuss with it, and then get it blown out for dressy occasions. I’ve felt that way myself re: hair length.

  16. Barb says:

    I used to like how Sahara dressed. Now all she wears is more manly outfits, even Vivian is no longer in the pretty dresses she used to wear. They are being influenced to dress down, by someone.

  17. Justme says:

    It’s funny how all 3 of her girls like masculine clothes more now (Z and Vivienne used to wear dresses but looks like they have Shiloh’s style now too). I’m courious as they all get older if they start experimenting with many different styles, or will all lean/stay towards a more masculine style. Angelina herself is feminine and even when dressed down, she tends to favor skirts so they don’t try and copy her, but I guess their brothers are their main fashion influencers. I’m surprised not one of the girls (Z had started it but no more) wants to be glam like their Mom.

    • Eve V says:

      Yeah, I’ve been surprised with how all three of the girls have been dressing more masculine. Shiloh always dressed that way but Z always had a more girlish/sophisticated style. I’m not suggesting anyone is “forcing” them to dress down but I do think it’s odd that all three of the girls are dressing that way now.

  18. Lindylou says:

    She looks nice but herss is wrong color for her, those pale colors are more suited to Nicole Kidman. Wow, Knox is really looking taller and older now!! Wow he’s really growing up!

  19. Tallia says:

    I am not a fan of the dress color, but ooooh POCKETS! Kinda wish she would leave the kids at home .

  20. Shappalled says:

    I’m going to go with lovely and meh.

  21. Adorable says:

    She looks Fab & well rested..Her aura has changed lately,I’m here for it!

  22. Jayna says:

    I think Angie got her breast implants smaller. I had been thinking they look smaller several times over the months. This dress clinches it for me. She looks great. I actually like the color on her.

  23. Eve says:

    My, my…what a gorgeous face.

  24. Debutante says:

    Yes she got those horrible huge bolt ons removed! That’s what’s different.
    Love the dress. I would like to see it in a beautiful burgundy shade on her. Same lip.

  25. Anare says:

    Is it just the makeup or do her eyes look a little jacked?

  26. Truth hurts says:

    Love her red lips and the dress. Her shoes are the wrong color but hey Angie will be Angie.
    Shiloh is a girl and in those photos she is actually wearing lip gloss and so is Zee. I think she is just a tomboy because Angie referred to them as women on the carpet a few weeks back. I don’t think it’s any gender confusion with her just because her self absorbed idiotic father made that statement years ago.
    I want Angie to date Ruby Rose. Sorry that is another one of my girl crushes.

  27. Trying Again says:

    Angeline looks stunning. She IS the movie star.Not the kids.

    I love that Shiloh and Zahara wear whatever they WANT. They look lovely, excited and very nicely dressed. So what if it’s not frills and feathers. Many teenagers change their look as they grow older. Z has lace with her black outfit. Shiloh would never do that. Even though both girls dress somewhat masculine, they both have their own unique styles. If anything they are doing the opposite of their mom. My girl loves makeup and shopping. I wear NO makeup, never shave and never shop.

    They look like a nurturing family in all the photos. Not staged. However it is accomplished, kudos to Angelina Jolie. She is a true icon of our age.

  28. Seitanworsshiper says:

    I also think she looks best with neutral makeup, gloss or a nude lipstick, and eyes played up only but not both eyes and very strongly coloured lips. The red is too severe.

    And I’m ready to be attacked but I think guiding kids on dressing appropriately for social situations is important part of their social development. Shiloh can wear a nice tux if she prefers and Zahara a dress. They look scruffy in their ill-fitting outfits.
