Angelina Jolie stepped out with her godmother Jacqueline Bisset in Paris

Angelina Jolie is seen leaving the Hotel de Crillon to go to Guerlain boutique

Angelina Jolie has been in Paris for the past three or four days. I think the trip is half-business, half-pleasure. A few days ago, she shot a new ad for Guerlain, and the paparazzi got some shots of her in lingerie, looking tousled and beautiful on a balcony or something. Then they photographed her out and about in Paris this week, and the photos are very pretty. She stepped out solo in white slacks and a pale grey sweater which I WANT, it’s so gorgeous. And then she caused, like, an international incident when she spent time with Jacqueline Bisset.

Bisset is actually Angelina’s godmother – Bisset knew her late mother, Marcheline Bertrand, and I think Bisset knew/knows Jon Voight too. Bisset and Angelina seem to check in with each other every few years. While Bisset is English, I believe she lives in France most of the time, if not all the time. Maybe Angelina called her godmother up for lunch while she (Angelina) was in town, I really don’t know. Angelina and Jacqueline have hung out twice in two days, and on Tuesday, when they exited the hotel, a huge group of people swarmed around them. It was all very epic. Bisset looks amazing, right? Angelina looks great too – I love her summer maxi dress. It’s such a good dress that I suspect she didn’t pick it out herself.

You know what I wonder? I wonder if Angelina Jolie was doing more than a Guerlain shoot while she was in Paris. We’re in early July, it’s conceivable that was doing a photoshoot for an October-issue magazine in Paris, right? Maleficent: Mistress of Evil comes out in October! Perhaps a Vogue shoot? I wonder if Mario Testino or Annie Leibovitz is in Paris this week too.

    I don’t usually like what Angie wears, but both of those outfits are fantastic. The gray sweater and white pants are simple and classic but so chic and I love that maxi dress.

    Jacqueline Bisset also looks fantastic and chic.

    • SM says:

      I agree. I usually dislike her style, but both looks here are great. I want a summer dress like that

    • Jenns says:

      I also agree. I love both of these looks are her.

    • a says:

      She should definitely use these colors more often in her sartorial repertoire. I know she tends to go for darker neutrals but the lighter neutrals really suit her. Bright and breezy.

    • Kebbie says:

      I think because she’s promoting Guerlain she used a stylist to put together looks for the trip. We usually see her everyday style so it’s not as polished.

  2. aiobhan targaryen says:

    She looks good here, fresh and happy. Don’t know if she recently got anything done, but if she did she got her money’s worth.

    I actually want that bag of hers. I love huge bags like that.

    • Carmen says:

      I can’t get over how happy and content she looks since she unloaded the deadweight.

  3. lucy2 says:

    I love that dress. It’s so not something I expected to see here wear.
    I like the sweater too, but OMG, hasn’t it been crazy hot in Paris?

    • Justme says:

      I know someone who’s been in Paris. Yesterday it was in the 70s Fahrenheit. That really hot weather seems to have retreated a bit.

      • Ashley G says:

        I live in Paris. It’s not 100 degrees anymore but it’s 77-82. Still too hot to wear a sweater. I wore a linen T-shirt yesterday and came home sweat covered. A sweater? She must be having a laugh. Most places in Paris aren’t even air conditioned, much less have fans.

  4. tempest prognosticator says:

    Angelina looks gorgeous. They both do. She and Bisset look like mother and daughter.

    • Carol says:

      I always thought those two looked like mother and daughter. I’m a huge fan of Bisset and she strikes me as being a very genuine, level-headed person. I love that she hasn’t had anything done to her face, but then again, she is so beautiful she doesn’t need to.

  5. Toot says:

    Angelina has looked so much better since the break up. Brad must have been stressing her out.

    • Kebbie says:

      Oh God, the Kung Fu Panda 3 premiere was early 2016, and I thought she looked seriously ill. A weight has definitely been lifted, her glow is back.

      • Marcus says:

        I agree with you Kebbie. She looked ill and not happy at all. Even when Unbroken came out and she went by herself she looked unhappy.

  6. Evil Owl says:

    They both look timeless. Like, they could literally be from any era and would glide through the world looking classic.

    • Dee Kay says:

      Oh wow, @Evil Owl, you hit the nail on the head. *That’s* why I find Angelina Jolie so beautiful, it’s because her look is timeless. And you’re right, when she and Bisset stand next to each other, they both have that quality or aura.

  7. msn says:

    I question the shoe choice with that maxi dress -a sandal or espadrille makes more sense to me, but I love the geometry of that print and the bag’s super cute.

    • Green Desert says:

      Agreed…I’d love to see her in cute flat sandals with that dress. With the pant/sweater look I’d also love a different shoe choice like sneakers, but I know that’s not her style. 🙂 I don’t usually like what she wears but both outfits are great!

  8. OSLO says:

    They look like mother and daughter! so classic

  9. RuthyfromIt says:

    Oh, well. I do love her style but this grey sweater and the maxi dress, girl, you went to another level!
    She looks happy and relaxed!

  10. FHMom says:

    They both look wonderful. Could pass for mother and daughter.

    • OSLO says:


    • BayTampaBay says:

      Jacqueline Bisset is just too cool for words.

      Definitely the same level of Coolness as Joan Collins, Helen Mirren, Cher and Dolly!

      • nikki says:

        I remember SO MANY years ago when the poster for her movie “The Deep” came out, and Jackie Bisset was an absolute sensation in her wet T-shirt; we are talking Farrah Fawcett level poster mania. In all her roles she seemed so wry and super cool. Can’t BELIEVE she still looks so wonderful; she’s absolutely ageless!!

  11. cee says:

    She looks amazing and happy and healthy and beautiful. Hope she is enjoying a little time without the kids.

  12. Sierra says:

    Angelina looks absolutely smacking – she is glowing with happiness.

  13. Pixie says:

    They both look unbelievably beautiful and ethereal! I am confused as to how celebrity and the paparazzi work in France. Presumably, Angelina has been to Paris/France loads in the last few years, without causing all of this commotion/paparazzi/the public knowing what hotel she is staying at. So, genuine question – does anyone know how this works? Does Guerlian do a press briefing to the public or something? lol

    • Michelle says:

      It was just a few photographers & some autograph hunters outside the hotel. It was outside the Guerlain store where she was doing press, that was chaos! It was a bit crowded when she & Bissett were going in, but leaving the store there were swarms of people.

      • Dee Kay says:

        I once chatted with someone who lived close to the Jolie-Pitts in London, and from him I learned that as soon as Angelina Jolie is spotted in a store or café, somebody takes a pic and posts it, and then loads of people (esp. paparazzi) show up at the establishment’s doorway before she leaves. So she can go into places unnoticed, but she often can’t leave them unnoticed.

    • Pixie says:

      Ah that makes sense, thanks! Can’t imagine having to live that way, but I suppose it comes with some pretty substantial privileges.

  14. Truth hurts says:

    She has a glow about her that was missing for a while during the latter yrs of her relationship. But now mama put on a few lbs and has a tan from filming in Mexico and OMG! And she could be happy asf now! Maybe she has a secret rendezvous every now and then. Whomever it is we thank you because she has made waves esp this summer. She looks absolutely gorgeous in Paris. Good for her and take the finger haters.

    • OSLO says:

      yes i totally agree with you. She has that glow of happiness around her.

    • Kebbie says:

      I don’t think she’s gained any weight, her weight has been the same for over a decade, but I agree that she looks great.

  15. Patty says:

    She looks great! It’s nice to see her in something other than an oversized black sack. Love both of these looks.

  16. anp says:

    Angelina and her Godmother are Awesome!

  17. Onerous says:

    She and Bisset are seen leaving the hotel in what seems like 4 different outfits – it’s a little strange. And then the photos of Angie reclining in the window in a slip? It’s off brand a bit, but she does look fabulous!

    • Hmmm says:

      The slip photos are for a photoshoot. LoL

      She looks fantastic.

    • OSLO says:

      She and Bisset are seen leaving the hotel in what seems like 4 different outfits
      @Onerous actually the pictures are from different days they have been spotted leaving the hotel since the 7th of July on different occasions.

    • Kebbie says:

      They’re camped outside the hotel so those are the photos they get. They’re different days so they’re wearing different clothes.

  18. Snowslow says:

    Really?! … Not on board with this grandma sipping tea and shopping rue St Honoré style at all. She was so badass! What happened?
    I also have tattoos and it’s a choice – but you have to style yourself accordingly otherwise you look like a fool and Angie knew how to dress so cool. I understand if she no longer is into fashion but just put jeans and a nice T-shirt and call it a day then, Garner-style. Voilà.

    • olive says:

      this isn’t anything like her normal casual style – she’s probably using a stylist for this trip

      • Snowslow says:

        Her style has been off since she embraced the earth mother – humanitarian look to me. But I find her very off-brand for these quite frankly tacky perfumes, especially if they have to change up her style to be a brand ambassador. Considering her detachment from fashion it feels artificial. I didn’t particularly like her style before but it felt more powerful and playful.

    Dope Ass woman

  20. Jaded says:

    She looks wonderful since she dropped that bonehead husband of hers. Smartest thing she ever did.

  21. Velvet Elvis says:

    Angelina looks amazing in that maxi dress, probably the best I’ve seen her look in years.

  22. Tallia says:

    I love the gray sweater and white pants and it is so nice to see her in a sundress that is not a black sack. She looks lovely. I’ve never had to have breast re-construction or implants, but how long do they take to settle? Because they just do not look like they suit her frame at all.

    • LadyT says:

      The nipple situation is due to the reconstruction aspect of her surgery.
      She apparently chose high profile implants that just look like that. There will be no further settling- that happens within 6 months generally.
      I have implants.

    • Kebbie says:

      There’s no breast tissue to soften the shape or position of the implants because it was a reconstruction. Even if they were smaller or lower, they’d still sit the same way.

      She looks good in the dress, I think she just has to figure out how to dress for her current body rather than her old one.

  23. Sidewithkids says:

    Angie looks beautiful. JB looks amazing as well. I’m sure Angie’s Mom is smiling (from heaven) seeing them together. I’m glad Angie is surrounding herself w/ good people and family.

    But y’all act like Angie isn’t glamorous when she’s working or visiting Paris/London. I honestly think she knows a lot about fashion. It’s just that on her days off and/or w/ her kids, she chooses to dress down. Plus, the girl loves caftans. Lol. That’s just her. That’s what I love about her. She doesn’t follow, she does her own thing b/c you have to believe she’s aware people hate the caftans and they think she’s thin af. Even after the Venezuela trip where peeps criticized the caftan and her weight (instead of paying attention to the humantarian nature of her trip), she ended up wearing that same caftan two more times. Lol. Like she was giving a middle finger to those critics. She does her. It’s a beautiful thing to see in a day and age where everyone wants to be trendy and look like everyone else. Keep doing you, Angie.

    • Kebbie says:

      I really doubt she has any idea whether or not random people on the internet like her caftans lol

      • Sidewithkids says:

        Angie like most celebs have people tell them when there is good word of mouth about something and bad word of mouth about something. I’m just saying she’s aware of it all and doesn’t care about it where most would. She does her own thing.

  24. Ad says:

    Simply gorgeous, jolie, jolie! She looks amaziiing, happy & content!

  25. Sidewithkids says:

    @LadyT, forgive my ignorance on this subject but since you said you have implants, I have more questions, if you don’t mind answering. Don’t the docs base the implants on your original breasts? Can you redo your implants or are you suck w/ the same ones? Also, what can you do about the nipple situation, I mean is that just a sensitive area now that’s always a bit perky?

    • LadyT says:

      No problem at all. Mine were strictly cosmetic after breastfeeding.I literally went in a room with all size and shape implants and tried them on in my bra. Doctors have opinions based on measurements but the final decision should be yours. Yes, they can be redone. It’s costly and more surgery but people do it all the time- either by choice or after a blow-out.
      As for the nipple reconstruction, a gather stitch is used to make a bump. Unfortunately the nerves are gone. Obviously I’m going on general knowledge, not her case specifically.

      • crogirl says:

        From what I remember Angelina said she had some kind of procedure not to lose sensitivity in her nipples. I think the settling process is different if you had all the breast tissue removed before putting implants.

      • LadyT says:

        Good for her! As to settling though, it’s been years. They are what they are. If she likes them, that’s what matters. If not she can change them. I think that’s all I want to talk about someone else’s breasts. 😬

      • Sidewithkids says:

        Thanks for the info.

  26. Parigo says:

    They look amazing!

  27. nikki says:

    I’m a huge fan of Jaqueline Bisset, and I like Angelina too, so to find out they’re close and go out together has made me incredibly happy. Jackie Bisset is just SO gorgeous; she is SEVENTY FOUR years old, and still looks stunning. In the movie “Two For The Road,” Albert Finney’s character is stuck with Audrey Hepburn’s after Jackie Bisset’s gets chicken pox! How gorgeous do you have to be that Audrey Hepburn is a disappointment?! (But of course she wasn’t; despite not having Bisset’s sex appeal, Audrey’s gamine charm and grace soon captivate the fellow!)

  28. SpankFD says:

    They look absolutely gorgeous and timeless. Huzzah!

    What do you want to bet that BP is livid? Serves him right after splashing all his latest crap – “Why won’t that crazy clinging woman let me go?” – all over a US magazine cover.

  29. dj says:

    These photos of JB and AJ absolutely make me giddy! This is what timeless beauty and style is all about. These photos of the two of them feel like a mouthwash after those Denise Richards photos.

  30. Ad says:

    Angelina Jolie is gorgeous & amazing! French saying jolie,jolie. Haters can open their empty mouth wide open. RIP haters & bullies! She has nothing to prove she is just simply Angelina Jolie the one & only AJ.
