Let’s just sit quietly & enjoy pretty photos of Angelina Jolie leaving the cathedral


St Michael St George sevice

Earlier, I covered the photos of Angelina Jolie inside St. Paul’s Cathedral, where she attended the Service of Installation of Knights Grand Cross of the Order of Bath. I’m not even going to pretend to have a real reason for running these photos of Angelina walking outside of the cathedral after the service. The reason? I don’t know, they’re just really pretty photos. I like them. This is a horrid week, just let me look at pretty photos of one of my faves, okay?

For this event, Angelina’s dress was a pale grey-silver Ralph and Russo design. I don’t know if this was custom or if it was already in their collection, but Angelina has always been a fan of R&R. She’s been wearing their designs for years to events, to premieres and awards shows. When Meghan Markle first wore that R&R dress in her engagement photos, my first thought was “oh, that’s the design house Angelina likes so much.” So it’s interesting to see People Magazine run pieces about how Angelina is basically “copying” Meghan. Granted, there are similarities – Meghan is bringing back the boatneck, this is a pale color which Meghan would like, and the design seems somewhat Meg-friendly in general too. But maybe that’s just because… Meghan and Angelina have similar body types and similar styles?

Angelina also wore her damehood cross as a brooch, which looked fantastic. Outside of the cathedral, she chatted with a group of kids and generally looked pleased to be there.

    Neither Angelina nor Meghan are copying the other, but if the press wants to run that story then they should say that Meghan is copying Angelina, nor the other way around.
    Angelina has been wearing this brand before, she has worn pale colors and boat necks before so….

    • huckle says:

      Good grief. Nobody’s copying anyone. Lots of people have worn pale colors and boat necks before Angelina and Meghan too.

    • Dazeem, Adele says:

      Correct me if I’m wrong, but when you have a ‘broader midsection’ (its all relative, I’m certainly not calling anyone large) as compared to the hips and shoulders, aren’t boatnecks a trick of the trade to create curves where there aren’t any? I suspect that is one of the reasons Meghan favors them so.

      • Rocio says:

        I think so. Both Angelina and Meghan are similar shapes (slim limbs, squarer mid-section) so it makes sense that they would gravitate towards similar cuts and shapes. Angelina is also, pretty much, the OG Queen of Nudes and Neutrals.
        Meghan probably likes neutrals because they go with everything, are appropriate for every occasion (especially important now that she attending events and ceremonies) and because they look good on her.

    • ArtHistorian says:

      Angie also wore R&R when she received her Damehood by QEII. I like that ensemble better. I really like R&R and I think the brand suits Angie’s Hollywood glamour.

      • Ophelia says:

        The white stiff peplumy one she wore on her first outing after mastectomy was out of this world (especially since I really don’t like peplums in general).

        It was Brad’s WWZ red carpet I think, the one where he turned up as a hobo.

    • SM says:

      I was going to say that Angelina could give Meghan a few tips on style while inLondon. Both outfits, this one and the one she wore during the meeting with the Queen a few years ago are much better than that bottomy style Meghan is going for

  2. oliphant says:

    love that damehood as a brooch!! I want one :)

    she is the epitome of poised, great pics.

  3. Inas says:

    My true Maleficent. There is nice photo of her shaking hand with a red head boy. So beautiful he’s looking at her like a Disney queen.

  4. Jess says:

    Man, she’s just so pretty!

  5. Andrea1 says:

    no wonder Brad is so mad and acting desperate this woman doesn’t even look bothered with his latest PR antics. She’s moved on long ago and it must hurt his ego really bad😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂🙆

  6. Guest says:

    She’s looks gorgeous!!! Love the whole outfit, fits her perfect

    And yes she and Meghan has almost the same body type.

    • Dazeem, Adele says:

      Meghan needs to follow AJ style. She does a great job dressing for her body (not counting when she wears all black sack dresses to the toy stores lol).

      • B n A fn says:

        Please give MM time. Can you imagine the pressure she’s under. She will find her style in time, she is a beautiful woman and has her own style. She will eventually settle on what’s best for her height. Sometimes I feel sorry for her with all the negative comments I read about her. I have to say the fans here are not vicious as some other sites.

    • Gia says:

      Ehhhh I don’t agree they have the same body type. Angelina is about 20lbs thinner and bigger breasted, narrow shoulders. Also when you see movies of her from younger days when she wasn’t as thin her body type was more pronounced, she had hips and a butt and small waist. Meghan is much more athletic with broader shoulders, no waist, smaller hips. Don’t get me wrong they both have killer bodies and I love them both but they are def different body types.

      • MargaritasForBreakfast says:

        Angelina is about 4 inches taller than Megs. There is no way she’s 20 pounds thinner. Megs lost weight before the wedding as well. They both have somewhat square boxy torsos and thin legs and arms. But Angelina is taller and likely heavier.

      • KBB says:

        Obviously Angelina has a larger bust, but I don’t remember her ever having a small waist relative to her hips. She can give the impression of an hourglass type figure when there is extra fabric on her hips or she’s wearing something super structured with a waist. Otherwise, there’s very little difference. Maybe a couple of inches. It’s why she looks so great in peplums. Meghan has less of a waist than Angelina though, I’ll give you that.

        Both Meghan and Angelina gain weight in their midsection rather than their limbs. It’s why neither of them look emaciated when they’re wearing clothes that are tight around their midsection. They look thin, but not as thin as you’d assume if you just saw their legs.

      • Aurelia says:

        Yeah, I don’t get the body comparrison either. Angelina is 4 inchs taller and has breasts and a waist.

      • Carmen says:

        How tall is Angie actually? When I used to see her standing next to Brad wearing four-inch stilettos, he was still a good inch or two taller than she was. He’s no more than six feet even, so she must be around 5’6″ or 5’7″. According to Meghan’s bio she is 5’7″. If that is true, there is no way Angie could be four inches taller than she is. (Edited to add: I just checked Angie’s IMDb bio and it gives her height as 5’6 1/2″. I was spot on.)

      • KBB says:

        All celebrities lie about their height, so the official listings are rarely accurate. I think Angelina is between 5’6 and 5’7. I think Brad is closer to 5’11 than 6’.

        I think Meghan Markle has to be between 5’4 and 5’5. People on here have claimed she is like 5’1 or something, but there’s no way. She towers over the Queen in a way only someone 5’4 flat footed could. The Queen isn’t less than 5’ in flats and she still wears small heels.

        Angelina has a couple inches on Meghan but not 4. Probably 2 or 2.5 at most.

      • Rdmum says:

        Her boobs look insane!! I thought she had gone up one or two cup sizes but here it looks like she may have gone to a double D!!

    • MargaritasForBreakfast says:

      If Only Megs would amp up the vamp instead of receding into the background…

  7. Milla says:

    Stunning. Always was and will be.

  8. tealily says:

    I really like her makeup here. Pretty.

  9. Sophia's side eye says:

    *swoon*
    Just stunning.

  10. Umyeah says:

    I hope she taking care of herself, i know she has always been thin but she looks especially lean. Obviously the stress of a public divorce while raising six kids is stressful so i hope she taking time for herself.

  11. Frosty says:

    Gorgeous, love the way her hair is styled too. Not sure about the gloves, whether wearing them adds to the effect or detracts slightly. But maybe correct protocol is to the wear them.

  12. ladie says:

    OH MY GOD THIS LOOK!!! STUNNING!!! God she looks so regal – just epically beautiful.

  13. VirgiliaCoriolanus says:

    Them shoes!

    I really hope they release (or even re-release) those themed shoes from the last Mal film. This time I can afford to buy a pair!

  14. adastraperaspera says:

    Thank you for this lovely break from the crazy world. She looks amazing.

  15. Kristiec68 says:

    She is stunning! A total star.

  16. Laura says:

    Angelina will forever be my first “girl crush” 😍
    She truly is a classy, intelligent, compassionate and beautiful lady ❤

  17. Annie says:

    Her bone structure is a work of art, and she carries herself with such confidence and regal elegance. One of the most captivating women I’ve ever seen. Can you imagine if someone with her looks was a royal, e.g. Princess of Wales? The media frenzy would be extreme.

  18. Jessica says:

    Interesting. On the previous post there are comments saying Meghan could learn from Angelina when she has already worn R&R several times.

  19. Ollie says:

    LOL full royal cosplay. Waving at the poor peasents…

  20. Christina says:

    Beautiful, but even more beautiful on the inside. People with power who think like she does are so needed right now.

  21. AnotherDirtyMartini says:

    So classy! I love her entire look.

  22. Digital Unicorn says:

    She looked great and has the royal handshake down pat! Am sure TQ won’t mind her stealing the limelight in her place, they seem to get on well and TQ did ask for her to be part of the Attenborough programme.

  23. CatPS says:

    She does not need anyone’s approval other than her own, but… I’ve always thought that when she had her breast reconstruction done, she went WAY too big. It makes her look oddly out of proportion, especially because she stays so incredibly thin. She is a gorgeous woman, but I’m always struck by how distorted her body appears. Not a good beauty standard to hold up for other women and girls.

    • KBB says:

      It’s not really her job to maintain a body that others deem appropriate for people to look up to. Very few actresses have bodies that would fit the bill.

      And it’s not like she got Pamela Anderson boobs at age 23. She was one of the few actresses to not have implants until she had her mastectomy. She’s a little more top heavy now, but maybe they ended up bigger than she expected and she decided it wasn’t worth an unnecessary surgery to fix. Or maybe she just likes them the way they are. She’s had surgeries that leave a lot of women feeling like “less of” a woman, I feel like women in that situation should at least get to pick their own size without critique.

    • Cleo2 says:

      No offense, but you critiquing her breast size. seems like a well worm re-tread. Likes it’s something you couldn’t stop talking about 4-5 years ago when they were new, and larger than they are now, having settled.

      It’s very obvious to me they’re much smaller, so they either settled or she got a different size at some point (which I doubt), either way…her bosom and torso in that dress look amazing.

      Maybe you want to retire the big boob shaming. Which she carried off fine as she has broad shoulders. They’re no longer that big. Calm down.

  24. Chaine says:

    She looks fabulous! normally I think she’s too skinny but it works for her this time!

  25. Keepitreal says:

    Meghan, please take some notes.

  26. FlyLikeAbird says:

    Meghan LEARN FROM THIS!!!! *Tyra Banks voice*

  27. Lenn says:

    I guess its just me but I think she looks like a ghost. The make-up is quite severe and ages her. A sunny Italian holiday with lots of pasta, is what i wish for her.

  28. harlequin says:

    That. Face. She’s so stunning it’s so unfair lol.

  29. Mei says:

    Absolutely gorgeous. The bag and shoes are R&R as well, but everything about the dress is stunning on her. Amal Clooney could learn a lot from her also, she has a similar body shape too. And as long as Meghan doesn’t veer into sack dresses (even though they look so comfy), we’re all good!

  30. DiegoInSF says:

    Rule #1 of life; for women, men, children and pets. Never stand next to Angelina as no matter how good you look, you’ll still look like roadkill next to her. 😆

  31. Flying fish says:

    I am not a fan of white shoes or gloves.
    The dresses is lovely, I would love to see Meghan in something like this instead of the persistent off the shoulder look.

  32. Olenna says:

    Ha! First thing I thought of when I saw the headline was “Elvis has left the building”! But, yes, she is lovely, so carry on, y’all.

  33. Hunter says:

    I love her shoes! I’ve been seeing them all over Pinterest but this the first time I’ve actually seen someone in them!

  34. Go Figure! says:

    Don’t even know why People bothered to write a piece about Angie since it was all about MM. How Angie copies her, yada, yada, yada. What a piece of crock. Angie is and has always been her own woman and marched to her beat of a different drummer. Otherwise, I could look at these pics all day. She is absolutely stunning, elegant, regal and royal.

  35. Sorella says:

    Always a beautiful face, stunning. But in some of the side profile pictures on another site, she is so skinny she is looking older than her true age (late 40s). As she ages, being so extra-thin will take it’s toll on her most PRIZED feature, her gorgeous face!! As they say, face or the waist, it’s a choice!

    I like what she is wearing and her fascinator (wish she should have chosen smaller implants, bit out of proportion I find with her skinny frame). In some way, I think that Meghan Markle is prettier as she smiles more and appears to have a WARMER in personality and that to me makes for a truly beautiful person. They are both beautiful, but Angelina is a bit remote/unaccessible/icy in some of her facial expressions.

    • KBB says:

      She can look icy in photos, but in interviews she always comes off quite warm. To the point it kind of takes me off guard because I don’t expect it.

    • Cleo2 says:

      @Sorella

      Are you new here? Just asking because most people who keep up with celebs and especially ones who post on celeb message boards, know Angelina’s age– she just tuned 43 earlier this month. Quite different from late 40s. Or are you slyly trying to make your point and waiting for someone like me to walk right into it – at which point you’ll jump up and say:”SEE SEE!! I told you she looked older, I thought she was 49!!”

      I see you gurrrl. Lol

      By the way, have the Brit tabloid press decide to make Angelina Meghan’s rival since the whole Kate vs Meg thing didn’t really go anywhere? I see you seem to be falling for it. I think they’re both warm beautiful people. They’re two different women so of course they’ll come across differently in pictures to strangers who don’t know them. They have different personalities and fingerprints too. Shocking! Lol

  36. YantkLynn says:

    She does look gorgeous but at the risk of sounding nit picky, I thought the gloves seemed a bit “costume-y” I know the Queen always wears gloves but in the crowd shots I didn’t see other women in gloves. I’ll admit I didn’t see a lot of crowd shots. I noticed very few gloves in wedding outfits either at Meg and Harry’s wedding though I remembered more instances at Will and Kate’s wedding. I sound like gloves are a big focus of mine but it’s not ! :)

    • KBB says:

      I don’t like the gloves either. There’s so much extra fabric. They remind me of the Amal Clooney ones. If they sat smoother I think I’d like them more. They’re like braided or ruched underneath, and it just makes the fabric even looser.

      Evening/dress gloves are great in theory but rarely executed well.

  37. ChillyWilly says:

    she looks fantastic! Love it all but I want that hat! And her swan -like neck! so elegant.

  38. Tashiro says:

    She needs to gain ten pounds.

  39. B n A fn says:

    She is so beautiful, ❤️❤️ The look, everything is on point today.

  40. Lila says:

    Love Angie. they way she transformed her image in the past decade is unbelievable. Also, I like that she feels connected to her European heritage, travels a lot and really enjoys different cultures (which is stereotypically very “non-American” of her).
    I always wonder what she thinks/says about Trump when it’s off the record. I mean, we all can guess her stance, but I would really LOVE to hear it

  41. my3cents says:

    I would feel so self conscious standing next to her having my picture taken ( being just an “ordinary “woman in the looks department). I can only imagine what that other woman in the pic felt….

  42. Mar says:

    She’s doing Royal better than the Royals.

  43. LittlefishMom says:

    Meghan doesn’t need to copy anyone. Angelina’s gloves are too big and I dislike this color on her. She looks too washed out. But yes, her face is gorgeous.

  44. AAA says:

    GODDAM DAME!!!!!

    Beautiful woman 😍😍😍

  45. Carmen says:

    She looks a thousand times happier since she unloaded the man-baby.

  46. Katebush says:

    Love her outfit minus the gloves, that in my opinion makes the outfit veer into costume territory.
    Also she looks way older than 43.

    • Mary says:

      I love her dress too. But I don’t think she looks older than 43. I think she looks her age. And don’t forget she removed her ovarians, so she is menopausal. I hate der makeup though. I always loved her cat eyeliner she did some years ago.

  47. The Original G says:

    This totally looks like a costume in a period film. Vintage drag attire. She’s like a caricature of herself.

  48. Abby says:

    She’s incredibly gorgeous.

    I don’t want to compare her and MM, but I would love to see MM wear this dress and this style on the regular.

  49. Meh says:

    How is her posture so perfect? I struggle so hard with standing/sitting up straight.
    Does anyone have any tricks for helping yourself have better posture???

  50. Nicole Savannah, GA says:

    That is the only dress I’ve liked from that line.

  51. Coraline says:

    She looks so beautiful and elegant for this occasion!

  52. MeghanNotMarkle says:

    This is a neutral color that isn’t so blerghy, and a style with interest but not committing the sin of being too busy. Maybe Meghan can borrow this sometime. I’d love to see her rock it, even with the gloves. Call me old-fashioned but I wish gloves would make a comeback.

  53. Bella says:

    She looks fabulous in these pictures!

  54. Remi Rothschild says:

    Good Lord, what has become of the peerage. They will obviously let anyone in.

  55. Tallia says:

    Her face looks stunning here, better than I have seen her in ages. I actually love the hat as well. The dress is MEH.

  56. Two dots says:

    She’d look way better if she reverted to her natural weight…as in the Gia days. Vastly, vastly underweight and her skin has a sucky grey pallor.
