Angelina Jolie in Ralph and Russo at the UK ‘Maleficent’ premiere: stunning?

The European Premiere of 'Maleficent: Mistress Of Evil' held at the Odeon IMAX Waterloo - Arrivals

Here are photos from last night’s London premiere of Maleficent: Mistress of Evil. The biggest look is Angelina Jolie in Ralph and Russo, a gown which was likely customized for this very premiere, and obviously tailored for her body. There is basically a gold “harness” with the bodice of this dress, and the fabric seems like silk tulle with sequins or beading. There’s also a pointed shoulder detail and what amounts to a cape. All in all… I like that it’s a BIG look and that she went all-out. But this dress isn’t my favorite? The back of the dress looks like a curtain valance and I find the dress with the hair to be too matronly.

Speaking of Matron Jolie, four of her kids joined her at the premiere – everybody but Pax and Maddox (who is in college). Zahara in particular has been outdoing her mom with her (Z’s) premiere looks. Did Angelina agree to allowing Zahara to get couture for the promotion too? Also: as Angelina walked the carpet, her lawyers and Brad Pitt’s lawyers were basically filing an extension on their never-ending divorce negotiations. They have everything worked out except for the financials, and they’re asking a private judge to help them work through the financial stuff. The court agreed as long as they pay for the private judge themselves. More than three years! Three times as long as the marriage!

For some reason, Michelle Pfeiffer wasn’t at the premiere, but Elle Fanning was there and she and Angelina coordinated their looks – Elle wore Armani Prive and Sutra Jewel opal earrings. She’s so beautiful. I’m adding some bonus Chiwetel Ejiofor.

    Just stunning. I think the tattoos save it from being too matronly. My favorite dress, though, is Zahara’s. LOVE.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      I love this one, too. I think it might be her best look of the premiere tour.

      and Zahara is killing it, too. I like Fannings dress but I’d like it more without the netting overlay.

    • MoxyLady says:

      Omg the little one with the bobby pins is wearing air birds – super comfy sneakers – on the red carpet. Adore.

    • Le4Frimaire says:

      Angelina looks stunning. Like the dress, very theatrical. Zahara is beautiful, so petite. My daughter loves Maleficent so will have to go see movie.

    • pulchritudinous says:

      Zahara looks like a mini queen in that dress. Love it.

  2. Sierra says:

    She looked absolutely stunning and regal like the queen she is.

    Elle’s dress is one of my favourites, so pretty and princess like.

    Michelle was probably tired and in pain as she hurt her wrist.

    As for Brad, him & his team probably didn’t like the fact that Angelina received this much love and respect during the promotion.

    Thankfully, Angelina seems genuinely happy and back to pre Brad personality. He subdued her and she is now free again.

  3. Amanda says:

    Shiloh looks so much like Brad!

    • Elisa says:

      Right? IMO she used to look so much like AJ but now all I see is Brad.

      • eilishb86 says:

        I thought the same thing too. I’ve always thought Shiloh was all Jolie until this photo. She’s mini Pitt.

        I like the dress and the hair, not fan of the lip color. Kind of washes her out. Don’t get me wrong, she looks great, but I think you can tell she looks tired. But she’s been traveling back to back so there’s that.

        I like Elle’s dress. She looks great. Zahara looks adorable in that dress though!

      • Algernon says:

        She got Angelina’s mouth, but everything else is Brad.

        ETA Knox is turning out to be the Joliest kid. He looks so much like Angelina’s brother.

    • Myrtle says:

      It wouldn’t kill Shiloh to up their shoe game, though!

    • Flffgrrrrlr says:

      Oh my god yes! Hadn’t seen til this photo. What a Brad mini-me. Angelina looks beautiful, amazing. They all do.

  4. SaraR. says:

    They filed to extend the use of private judge that they are using since January of 2017. Blast is concluding that this is for financial reasons, but when they signed custody agreement last November, they issued statement that this is not a permanent agreement but a temporary one, to move things in the right direction. I think they are waiting for Brad to be able to take more responsibilities for children, as he is healing from his problems. So yeah, I think that is a primary issue there, not finances.

    Angelina’s dress from London premiere was not my favorite, but I like her hair and makeup.

    Elle’s look is perfection!

  5. Sarah says:

    Knox is GORGEOUS! He and Pax take after AJ in that stop-your-heart looks.
    I love how young Vivian looks. Very sweet and age- appro. Zahara too; dressed up but age appropriate. She’s obviously the fashionista of the kids.

  6. Toot says:

    Angelina has such good looking kids. Love that they seem close.

  7. Clara says:

    I think Angie’s look kind of failed for me, and I hate saying this because of her previous issues, and as a big chested girl myself, but her bust looks to big and heavy in it. With smaller chesticles I think this would have looked better. Just my opinion, don’t hate me.

    • smee says:

      Yeah, there’s something unflattering about the bust line of that dress…a deeper v neckline would help it

    • Mireile says:

      LOL! I hope we can have civilized conversations here about Angie’s red carpet looks without the hate. I am not a fan of the dress and I agree with you … it’s the bust line of the dress that doesn’t work.

  8. Sierra says:

    I agree. I really respect the fact that the children seem to follow different directions with their passions.

    Maddox is studying bio chemistry, Pax seems to like cooking, Zaharia is into jewellery designing, Shiloh will one day become an UN ambassador and not sure about the twins.

    I don’t think one of those children wants to into Hollywood.

    • ChillyWilly says:

      WOW! You know a lot about her kids.

      • Sierra says:

        I have been following the press conferences for this movie and Angelina talks about her children 🤷‍♀️

        Plus my reply was to another comment that seems to have been removed.

    • Hmmm says:

      Well, Angelina said on the red carpet that her kids don’t want to be actors. LoL and the red carpet is fun for them and she wants them to never take stuff like that serious “like other people tend to”…🤷🏽‍♀️

  9. Eve says:


    Just perfect: dress, makeup and especially the hair.

    • tempest prognosticator says:

      She does look flawless and I think she is one of the very few who could pull off that dress.

      Having said that, I will admit that this dress made me think of Carol Burnett’s classic Gone With the Wind sketch. Burnett’s Scarlett wears the curtains with the rod still in it. It’s hilarious.

      • Kikis says:

        She looks good yes…she forgotten appearances matter even though that wont hold it…
        Brad doesnt need her. She knows he only need her blame to end i bet…

  10. Jennifer says:

    Her makeup looks clean and fresh and her hair is simple. I think it works with this dress because this gorgeous dress is doing the most. Sparkles, a gold harness, and a cape is enough for the look, her hair and makeup didn’t need to compete with it. Although, really, nothing can compete with THAT FACE.

  11. Kittycat says:

    Stunning indeed. The best look so far.

  12. Lucy2 says:

    I love the glittery fabric, just wish the dress was a little more simplified. There’s an awful lot going on there, and I don’t love the boob harness design.
    Same for Elle’s dress, I would prefer a little less “stuff”.

  13. Bookworm says:

    I love Angie’s glittery dress except for those poky shoulders.

    Elle’s looks like a fishnet was dropped over her; I really don’t like that gown or the color of it.

  14. GreenTurtle says:

    She looks stunning. That face! This is high drama, and while I don’t like the dress overall, I like elements of the it. The cape/veil of sheer fabric with sequins is beautiful and reminds me of a sari. The front, though. Ugh. Everyone has different taste, of course, but I personally can’t stand any visible lingerie details/underwire in a bodice. The boob outlining is heinous.

  15. Alexandria says:

    Best so far. A plus my Queen!

  16. ChillyWilly says:

    AJ looks gorgeous as usual but I’m not a fan of the dress. Zahara is quite the fashonista! She looks very pretty! I like Elle’s gown. Pretty color and she is at the right age to do princessy.

  17. Charfromdarock says:


    Elle and Zahara are lovely as well.

  18. Mego says:

    It’s kind of a weird dress but she looks beautiful. Nice to see her in a light shade.

  19. DS9 says:

    The back of that gown makes it.

    All hail!

  20. Dbee says:

    She’s stunning ♥️♥️

  21. SJR says:

    AJ looks like a Movie Star! Old Hollywood glamour. She is such a beauty.
    I like the fabric, but not the harness look in the front.

    Boy, Brad Pitt must be one messed up Dude if he still hasn’t grown up enough to be responsible around his kids.
    I would imagine separating their finances, business, etc. is giving their lawyers a ton of billable hours too.

  22. Valiantly Varnished says:

    I love it. It’s stunning and perfect for the film that it’s for. She looks like a Queen. But a really bad ass one.

  23. ReginaGeorge says:

    Umm, I’m watching you Z! And I’m here for it! You been coming onto these red carpets dressed to the hilt and snatching wigs left and right! She’s like, my mom may be the star of this movie, but dag-nabbit! I’m gonna be seen! Stunt on ‘em baby-girl!

  24. Mireile says:

    Overall they all look great, but not a fan of Angie’s dress. Too much fabric going on for a woman who looks like … as one Celebitchy fan once described her … some unworldly space angel. I like more simplistic designs on her – emphasizes more of what she’s got going on naturally. With other celebs, clothes can overwhelm and enhance their appearance. With Angie, clothes are just ornaments to her face and figure. Her looks enhance the dress. Love Elle’s dress and the kids are adorable, but I am LOVING HOW ZAHARA IS SLAYING THE RED-CARPET! Love her dress at this premiere! She’s a stunner!

  25. Snap Happy says:

    She is exquisite.

  26. ennie says:

    I love it.

  27. boredblond says:

    She looks fine, but the shoulders gave me a Carol Burnett-doing-Scarlet O’Hara flashback, and I can’t stop smiling

  28. What. . .now? says:

    Woooow! She looks stunning and so, so beautiful. Her outfits for this press tour have been amazing. That face! And the kids look so cute and age appropriate! Zahara has been killing it with her dresses, she has really good taste!

  29. Katherine says:

    I love Angelina’s look! Best she’s looked in years- flawless!

  30. Grant says:

    I love this. She looks fabulous. I’m shocked because I’m used to Angelina barely trying and looking awful on the red carpet in some hideous sack dress. Looks like she’s really embraced the hustle since she ditched Brad.

  31. Green Desert says:

    One of my favorite looks on her, ever. Beautiful!

  32. Linda says:

    Angelina is absolutely stunning.

  33. Bc says:

    1. Wow, the first pic is jawdroppingly good. She is STUNNING. Damn.
    2. The pic with the kids dressed up is so awww…
    3. Zaharas dress!!! This girl is a fashionista in the making. I hope she will be in the entertainment industry, of course, just my opinion.

  34. Hmmm says:

    I like the dress. She should’ve saved it for The Eternals promotion.

    Second It’s the same private judge they’ve had the whole time. The same one who married them. Lmao. Toxic Pitt has filed yet another extension.

    Angelina is obviously so over it all judging by her interviews and it’s time his team, media and people not paying attention to stop claiming he has 50/50 custody. That’s is so obviously not the case at this point as AJ and her kids have been out of the Country and before that toxic was flying all over promoting his stuff.

    Us weekly has a slight hit piece on Maddox and how db is waiting for the child to reach out to him. As if of toxic Pitt is the victim.

    I think the issue for his fans and media is that once they admit he lost custody they then have to face the facts that something is indeed wrong with him. Like Britney Spears level.

  35. Mar says:

    I absolutely hate the bust line – the gown is too mature like for a 70 year old women.

  36. Hello says:

    She is gorgeous. I LOVE the dress. It’s perfectly on theme. She looks confident and is wearing the hell out of it. Hope she continues with these fabulous looks

  37. Naddie says:

    I can’t explain how much I love her look here. It’s royalist, ethereal, elegant and dramatic.

  38. Blerg says:

    I don’t care for Angelina’s dress, but I like the drama of it…very Maleficent-y. Her face is a picture—so, so beautiful here. Great makeup and she looks rested.

  39. Bread and Circuses says:

    Wow, this post is serious dress-porn! Angelina, Dakota AND Zahara! I love all their gowns.

  40. Huggy says:

    I love Knox’s pants, looks almost like material from zaharas dress wrapped around the leg
    Very cute

    For over thirty years, Robert has been an active supporter of numerous charities for under privileged children.

    One charity that is particularly close to his heart is the House of Ruth, a Los Angeles based non-profit that assists families impacted by domestic violence. Twenty years ago when he was first introduced to the facility – which was a single home in Los Angeles at the time – Robert assisted in the rehabilitation of the facility. Since then, Robert has purchased and developed two more shelter sites for House of Ruth, and is focused on continued expansion of this community as his lifelong goal.
