Angelina Jolie steps out at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London for a royal event

Dame Angelina Jolie stepped out today in England for the Service of Installation of Knights Grand Cross of the Order of Bath. It’s a big deal! The service was held at St Paul’s Cathedral in London, and she wore a special ivory-grey ensemble and a matching hat. She even wore a brooch! You know why? Because she thought she was going to be seeing her BFF, the Queen. Unfortunately, the Queen came down with a cold or something, and the Queen canceled her appearance at the last minute. I’m disappointed that the Queen and Dame Angie didn’t get to hang out again.

Meanwhile, I suspect that Angelina attended this ceremony because she had some free time, because Brad Pitt is in town for his scheduled visitation with the kids. He won’t shut up about it either, because after nearly two years of not being able to perform his Good Daddy routine for the tabloids, he’s going hog-wild. Entertainment Tonight had another exclusive with “sources close to Brad” doing the most to make Angelina sound like a raging bitch for, you know, wanting the kids to be in therapy after Brad did some sh-t on a plane. This was an interesting aside:

As for his dating life, the source says Pitt has “chosen fatherhood over dating.”

“Brad was taking time to date, when he had the time. He also enjoyed quietly dating,” the source says. “But now all he wants to do is focus on family. He has taken a step away from dating because of the importance of his children and also to help mend fences with Angelina. [He and Angelina] still don’t get along at all, and in fact, they can barely be in the same room. Brad doesn’t want to rock the boat [by dating]. He wants to try to co-parent and the last thing he needs right now is to start another war because things seem smoother than they’ve ever been.”

[From ET]

I love how Brad makes it sound like he’s only thinking of Angelina’s feelings by refusing to have a girlfriend. Like Angelina gives a sh-t at this point – she’s been over his bulls–t since 2016. He tried to make her jealous or get under her skin with the Neri Oxman stuff and it blew up in his face, because Oxman wasn’t interested, and Angelina couldn’t have cared less. But you see the overarching storyline, according to Brad, right? The storyline is that Angelina has always been the problem, that she’s the unmanageable one, that she’s the one who is too “emotional.” I’m sure someone is buying it, but I’m not.

    Her Majesty called in sick.

    Angelina just dropped the mike on Brad and his PR games.

    With one single event, she showed the world that by living her life helping her children and other, by not engaging in Brad’s pathetic games, she is the real star amongst those two.

    Every single site are mentioning that that Queen had to cancel because of illness but also mentioned Hollywood star Angelina Jolie attending. She is being name dropped in every single news about this service.

    Angelina again proved that Brad may have half of Hollywood and the media on his side, but Angelina has the real power. She is an UN ambassador, close friends with powerful people, close friend with Queen Rania and was personally asked by Queen Elizabeth to feature in her documentary with Attenborough.

    Her career has increased with 2 movies almost done, another 2 confirmed with 1 producing maybe directing role as well.

    Her KIND charity are helping thousands of immigrants in USA, and other charities around the world are educating girls for free.

    Go Angelina…

    • Hmmm says:

      Still no word on what in the world is happening with Brad Pitt’s make it right foundation and those pesky lawsuits.

      Is it still his foundation or is he going to blame someone else for the mess?

      • rose says:

        MIR is having problems with those homes having mold. There was investigative report on one of the news stations in new orleans recently with some of the homeowners, surprised the media didn’t pick it up.

      • Hmmm says:

        Rose, they are also being sued by native Americans and the media didn’t pick that one up either. Wonder why?

      • rose says:

        I don’t know but when homes are causing people health issues something needs to be done.

    • norah says:

      damn right -

    • Yup, Me says:

      When it comes to Brad, Angelina is the epitome of “ain’t nobody thinking ’bout you.” I love it.

    • Go Figure! says:

      @ Maya: Let’s not forget the fact that, before telling Angie I’m sure, he and/or his PR team went to E(?) stating he’d like to mend fence with Jolie. How about letting her know first or how about mending fences by keeping your mouth shut or issuing a public apology for all the world to see about all the really horrible things your PR team said about her. Course we know you’d never say anything bad about her. Now would he? Angie has her groove back and she is woman hear her roar! Ain’t no stopping her now. And I, too, wonder what is the status of the MIR Foundation. Didn’t know the Native Americans were suing the Foundation. Will be interesting to see if he will make it right or put the blame on someone else. Such a shame. His true colors are really beginning to come out!

      • norah says:

        if he had just kept quiet and stopped dissing angelina months ago maybe the divorce and the child custody issues wd have been sorted out ages ago. but he had to play stupid pr games and ended up looking weak and petty. someone he spent years and had said he LOVED and he treated her and the kids so badly. just pathetic behaviour from him

  3. Prissa says:

    So beautiful. Love the dress & hat. Simple and elegant.

    • enike says:

      would be maybe proper to wear a bra to this kind of official event….

      • Sophie says:

        @ENIKE Silly comment! She is wearing a bra. It’s not her fault her breasts are more prominent, since having a mastectomy.

      • Rapunzel says:

        There’s definitely a bra. I think it’s the cut of the dress which is accentuating her breasts . And kind of making them look droopy.

      • Holly says:

        Right?! You can see her bare shoulders and erect nips. I don’t have anything against her at all but I think it’s fair to say the commenters here would have jumped on anyone else (esp Kate) had they worn no bra. My first (albeit pretty ignorant as I don’t follow Angelina gossip much besides here) impression was she was doing Meghan cosplay (look at me, I want royal attention too!) and I was thinking “damn, no bra in front of the Queen?”. I’m sure I’ll get corrected but honestly, you guys, I don’t dislike Angelina. She’s beautiful and talented. Just an uninformed thought so you all don’t have to get all worked up & start a bra debate this morning. She looks great regardless.

      • Ophelia says:

        At least she remembers to wear gloves! Lol. She tries to be a conservative non conservative I guess. Wonder if she remembers to wear hosiery this time.

      • kacy says:

        If she’s wearing a bra, she needs to get one with more padding.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        please stop with the nipple shaming.

        some women’s nipples are more sensitive than others. I have big boobs, and my nipples will perk up with a strong breeze. and NO, I am NOT wearing a “padded bra” when I already have enough natural padding up there. and Jolie shouldn’t have to, either.

        if your delicate sensibilities are OMG OFFENDED! by her nips, look away.

      • PrincessMe says:

        @whatWHAT?
        Don’t forget that she’s also showing her shoulder *gasp*. Such lewd behaviour.

        /sarcasm

      • Enn says:

        @Whatwhat? PREACH IT. I have to wear a thinner bra with certain outfits lest it look bulky (I’m already an E cup) and yes, sometimes nipples show. Also, permanently erect nipples can happen as a result of breast surgery.

      • veroS says:

        She’s wearing a bra though

      • Sojaschnitzel says:

        what WhatWhat said. Stop the nipple shaming. My nipples do what they want, and that’s that. I have tried talking to them but to no avail. What can you do….

      • Anastasia says:

        Thank you to @whatWHAT for pointing out what needs to be said. There is NOTHING wrong with what she’s wearing. Nothing. Women need to stop policing other women’s breasts, for the love of everything.

    • Olenna says:

      Agree, she looks lovely.

    • notpretentious says:

      Yes, she looks perfectly, lovely.

    • Chaine says:

      I agree, and I’m generally team Aniston. She is perfection here.

      • Saphy says:

        Despite Aniston doing the exact same thing and homewrecking Heidi Bivens and Justin Theroux? A relationship of 14 years when she was only married to Brad for 4.5 years? Despite Aniston cruelly taking cosy shots with Justin and releasing them, only one week after poor Heidi fled their apartment after she learned of Aniston and Theroux’ affair? I mean, my god, at least Angelina DOES good for people, she works hard, has a good ethic, while Aniston is also a homewrecker BUT does no charity, nothing except drink in Cabo. How anyone can be team Aniston is beyond me.

        Besides, the ‘team Aniston/Jolie’ thing is almost 15 years ago. Why can’t ‘team Aniston’ move on already?

    • whatWHAT? says:

      she look so POSH, doesn’t she? very elegant, I agree.

  4. lower-case deb says:

    is the brooch she wearing the Dame medal she got from QE? it looks familiar in pictures from the other sites.

  5. Jessica says:

    So what is this supposed to mean? Is she trying to work her way in with the younger royals? I know she already met Will and Kate.

    • Maya says:

      Do read the official statement- she was invited because she received the Damehood and is more than an acquaintance of the Queen’s.

      I remember reading Kate was the one who really wanted to met her and not the other way around.

      • Go Figure! says:

        It’s a shame most women have to put other women down, especially when it comes to Angelina Jolie. There was mention of her having “padded” her butt. Angie doesn’t need padding. She has always had a nice round butt, and I say this as someone who definitely likes men. Why can’t we just give credit where credit is due, give a compliment and move on?

    • norah says:

      in case you have forgotten she has every right to be there and why on earth wd she bother about playing royalty. she is well known for her own name

    • Dee says:

      I was so surprised she didn’t attend Meghan and Harry’s wedding, if they were going for Hollywood Royalty. Plus humanitarian A-listers.

  6. Joy says:

    This is how you do simple and elegant without being boring. Both of the duchesses should take notes.

  7. erwin says:

    The dress is very beautiful, this is kind of dress I expey from both duchesses

  8. Anon says:

    Oh look, a totally button-free dress which is elegant and appropriate without being dull. AJ and the Duchesses can’t be far apart in terms of access to stylists, designers, money. Why can’t they do this?

  9. RBC says:

    Angelina looks great. I hope the Queen will get better soon, but I have to wonder if she might be hoping to still not feeling great by July 13 when a certain person pays a visit? I wonder if the Queen reads Celebitchy?…

    • Maya says:

      Lol didn’t think of that – get sick and take care of the problem 😂

    • Rapunzel says:

      OMG. I would love it if Liz was getting the word out early enough so it doesn’t look like she’s faking. But really is faking to avoid Donny. I will laugh so hard of Trump goes all the way to Windsor and TQ denys him a visit. I’d love it if she trolled him by putting up a sign on Windsor Castle which said “La reina no esta en el alcazar.”

    • Chaine says:

      That was my first thought, setting the stage for a regretful inability to meet n greet a certain orange American

  10. Naomi says:

    Is it really that important this event, I mean all these superfluous events really are just about keeping the BRF busy.

    AJ has a damehood, so now a sainthood has been conferred.

  11. Sayrah says:

    I completely believe when she was done with Brad she was done. I think the only thing that matters to her are her children and her work and the suggestion that Brad is sparing her from having to see him with another woman is laughable.

    • Cleo2 says:

      @Sayrah

      I totally agree. Sometimes I think had Brad done a complete mea culpa, said he had ‘a disease that finally caught up to him and that he’d work hard to seek his family’s forgiveness and get well and sober,’ Angelina may have at least come to respect him more and from there may have been able to think about getting back with him.

      But she discovered quickly after ‘the incident,’ what some of us have always suspected about him- that Brad is neither strong nor self (image) sacrificing. I’m sure it was a rude awakening for her. She believed and bought what he was selling. Maybe because that’s what he wanted to be too. Heh, I’ve always said Brad was a better actor than many gave him credit for.

      So yea, you have it right Sayrah- she’s done with him. It is hysterical that his people are framing her as a jealous shrew that would be miffed if he had a gf or was dating. Frankly, it personally believe if Brad hooked up with a sober, mature and responsible smart lady that could watch out for his drunk azz and the kids when he had them (like say a Neri Oxman or any other responsible woman that would help not hinder Brad), Angelina would be thrilled. I bet she’d be relieved.

  12. Sophie says:

    He wants to mend fences with her? Yes, have your PR slam the mother of your children on a daily basis, is a great way to go about it. GMAB!

  13. Hmmm says:

    Yes, Brad Pitt Angelina really cares about what you do. He’s been crowing about dating aince about 5 months after she dumped his sorry a– all of a sudden now that Neri Oxman has been spotted with her billionaire now he doesn’t want to date. Lmao

    If neri and Ackerman were still hiding their romance Pitt’s Pr team would still be crowing about how they spend time together and How his friends really really want him to date her…His team made a damn fool out of him and now they’re blaming Angelina. He’s just like trump and his Hillary obsession. 😂

    My take = Pitt does want to mend fences or something, but Angelina isn’t talking to him – she is letting lawyers and therapists handle that mess because she obviously can’t trust him. If she talks to him he will run to the tabloids about it.
    He’s desperately trying to get her attention with the non stop updates to any and all tabloids that will listen to him and she’s simply ignoring him. Supposedly she even changed her phone number and he can’t have it… Wonder why?

    • Agapanthus says:

      I agree. Jeez, if he is paying for this so-called ‘PR’ he needs to get a refund/change adviser. It is making him look awful.

    • Go Figure! says:

      @Hmmm: I do agree that Angie is done with Brad and, thank Heavens, has moved on with her life. Where was the worry about his children when he was flying around with Frank Ocean, or traveling to openings with Huga(?) and those other people? What took him 2 years to suddenly decide he wanted to play daddy? All this to make Angelina look bad? Angie took one year out of her life to do nothing but be a mother to his kids. I had to agree with one poster who posted Pitt is mad at her for actually having the nerve to file for divorce and leave him. He does need a new PR team. He’s winning Hollywood. Never will forget that title. I don’t think Angie will ever be close to him again but do agree she will do everything in her power to co-parent with him, if he will let her. It’s on him now. I find it funny that he now wants to mend fences with her.

  14. Henners of Oz says:

    I’m not really an Angelina Stan but, man, her face really sticks out in the crowd. She has such striking features when seated amongst ‘average looking’ people

    • CityGirl says:

      Henners – my exact reaction to those photos too!!

    • Dee says:

      I know! It’s like she is lit differently from everyone else. Seems like the whole event is taking place around her. She looks ethereal.

    • Masamf says:

      Isn’t she this visible because the cameras are zooming in on her? Like if it was some random picture and you weren’t told that she was there, would you pick her out of any crowd? I don’t think so.

  15. homeslice says:

    Wow. She looks gorgeous! That is how you wear a hat!

  16. The Original G says:

    Sorry, she looks like a 40s B movie character in that outfit. Isn’t there a way to be appropriate without being in costume?

  17. Sage says:

    She looks pretty when she smiles otherwise she still looks ill.

    • norah says:

      she has been looking ” ill” for years but somehow has managed to thrive with her life and her career no thanks to remarks like that. either she is too thin or too ill. is it because it is her that people can keep making remarks like this? thin shaming is a thing now

  18. ocjulia says:

    Brad doesn’t want to “rock the boat” by dating but released all of that [false] crap to the press about Neri Oxman and him starting a relationship? OOOOKAY, Brad. He’s so stupid.

    AJ looks wonderful. I hope her kids are doing okay.

  19. Mar says:

    Omg the pictures of her in the crowd! 😍Perfection. She seriously is so striking, isn’t she?

  20. Mamba says:

    The first thing I see is that she’s alone. This really stands out because she’s always with her kids. It bothers me that they are constantly in front of cameras, on red carpets and all of their lives constantly speculated about. They should be protected. The next thing I see is how impeccably perfect her outfit looks. I hope she continues venturing out without her children.

    • norah says:

      she is there at an event where her kids were probably not invited. i think that she knows when to bring her kids and when to leave them at home esp if it is that boring.

  21. aerohead21 says:

    So close…if she would have left the gloves behind, this would be an example of how to not overstyle with buttons or belts. And to add, I’m not opposed to buttons. I’m just put off by BIG buttons en masse. Blush color with a slim belt or sash belt, maybe smaller buttons. Neckline. All too much embellishment. Keep it simpler.

  22. harla says:

    She is not wearing a brooch, she’s wearing her Order of St. Michael and St. George, which is why she was invited to this ceremony.

  23. Lorelei says:

    Kate must have been so mad that she didn’t go after learning that Angelina was there :)

  24. ennie says:

    She has big Voight hands that she’s always criticized for by some people. She has covered them with gloves sometimes with different outfits.

    • Cleo2 says:

      @ennie

      What? Lol I’ve seen her in person. Everything about her is small boned. Including her very slender hands. Her fingers are long, but to describe her hands as “big,” is ridiculous. Both she and Brad were small boned, they had height but they we’re like a different species. Lol

      Regular people or civilians really don’t get it until they see some of these folks in person. Even the people you think are average size are not they’re all like small boned – for example the actress Kathy Bates, saw her at a film fest once as well…I bet people look at her films and think she’s like plus size or a size 12-14. If she’s even a size 8 I’ll eat my hat.

    • norah says:

      well ennie – if you ever looked at angelina there is nothing big about her hands etc -

  25. Wawa says:

    My pet peeve is when women dress up, get made up and what have you, only to look stiff, like they’re braving a freezing cold room. I’m not even talking about botox. I’m talking about no breathing, the frozen spine and shoulders, and the phoney automaton expression. It looks painful.

    • Yup, Me says:

      By contrast, how should they look and be?

    • Cleo2 says:

      @wawa

      Huh?

      These are 3 still shots from a significant distance away. How can you say someone has a frozen anything when you’re literally looking at a STILL pic ‘frozen,’ in time. Have you seen video or something? Otherwise this comment makes no sense.

      As for her expression, in one she’s smiling,
      one she’s not, and one she’s looking up at the ceiling architecture it appears kind of in wonderment.

      How’s any of that “phoney?” If she had been caught sneezing, picking her nose or chomping a piece of gum and scrunching hee face I supposed you’d be happy? The less perfect she looks the happier we ladies are I guess, eh? Lmao icu

  26. Joannie says:

    Her outfit is lovely but she looks rather harsh in some pics. Very dark under her eyes.

  27. ladida says:

    She needs to slow down on the botox.

    • Cleo2 says:

      Maybe you should slow down on the jelly. Lol

      I get how some women want to claw and scratch before ever saying something nice about a beautiful woman they’ve long irrationally disliked, but your comment is ridiculous. There’s nothing about this 43yo that implies botox.

      There’s this weird tendency for the meow brigade to ignore what botox symptoms are, I. E. ‘batface’ (see Nicole Kidman from 6yrs ago) and/or an inability to move your facial musculature (see any real housewives show, esp when they try to cry or frown) – and just tag beautiful stunning women of a certain age as botox users when they show up slaying the universe and looking breathtaking.

      Look we get it, you can’t relate to classic beauty- but why lie on it?

  28. Katebush says:

    She looks sad to me in these photos. Very beautiful but I feel like she’s lost her spark.
    I do think the outfit is great but the gloves take it into costume territory.l, like she’s playing a part in a Hitchcock movie or something.

    • Cleo2 says:

      Most Americans “lost their spark,” in Nov of 2016. Angelina’s no different.

      That said, considering she’s been raising 6 kids on her own since her 7th, an alcoholic rager named Brad is currently trying to clean up and be responsible so he can share some parental duties…I wouldn’t be surprised if she was a wee tired.

      All told she looks stunning, and happy IMO.

    • KBB says:

      I think she and Brad had a luster together that they probably won’t be able to replicate apart. Something about these two beautiful and otherworldly movie stars falling in love put them in a league of their own. Their careers excelled, their projects became more prestigious, and their fame grew infinitely. They were more than a sum of their parts. Sad how it has all turned out.

      • Booie says:

        She was an absolute star before him and we see in pictures from this event everyone surrounding her and goggling at her. She’ll be just fine. If anything, she held back and was much reserved when with him. There’s a couple of images and videos of him trying to control her and sometimes snapping at her and her looking like a reprimanded child. Now she can go back to being herself without his half feeling the need to control what she presents herself as. And clearly as seen here, it’s a much better look.

      • KBB says:

        I never said she wasn’t a star without him or that she wasn’t magnetic by herself – of course she is. They both are. That’s why they’re A-List movie stars. I said together they were greater than the sum of their parts. It was like 10+10=100 when they walked a red carpet together.

        I don’t know about the other stuff. I have a hard time believing she would allow any man to control her or make her feel like she had to shrink in his presence or whatever you’re saying.

    • norah says:

      she looks sad? maybe she is just tired – what with filming and looking after her kids and the extra stress of her pathetic ex making a nuisance of himself – to even be out and about is a major thing

  29. Dorky says:

    I’m sorry, but she looks like a robot in every picture. Beautiful. But a robot. Creepy!

  30. Dorky says:

    In fact, the past several years, she’s looked like a dead-behind-the-eyes robot. It’s just odd.

  31. Two dots says:

    KBB – the Brange sucked the luster/hot out of each other years ago 😂
