Angelina Jolie wore a McQueen LBD & an amazing studded headband in the UK

The day after the London premiere of Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning did a photocall in London. I have no idea if they knew what the backdrop would be, and my guess is that Angelina Jolie did not realize that photographers were going to ask her to pose perfectly in front of the Maleficent backdrop so that her head was perfectly lined with with the “horns.” Angelina did it with glee and a dash of mom-dorkiness. I truly imagine her getting excited about how the photos would turn out.

Angelina wore Alexander McQueen – a slinky black dress with lace sleeves and shoulders. I’m not a lace fan, but I like the look of the sleeves. Elle wore a red Gucci suit and she looked amazing. But the best part of this photocall was absolutely Angelina’s studded headband. That is SO MUCH fun. I would have worn that hell out of that when I was a goth teen. I hope that studded headband is some Maleficent merch because so many girls will want it.

Meanwhile, Us Weekly reports that Angelina has “tried to help mend” the relationship between Brad Pitt and Maddox. But Brad is “disappointed” that he and Maddox are not closer. A source told Us Weekly: “Maddox hasn’t been receptive. And for Brad, it’s a tremendous loss. With Maddox overseas, Brad is also hopeful that Pax will also be interested in reconnecting without the influence of his older brother.” I know Angelina has gotten a lot of sh-t about how she allegedly “alienated” the kids against Brad, but it always seemed to me like he alienated himself from them and Pax and Maddox were the ones old enough to make the choice not to see Brad. Brad could choose to respect their choice and hope that they can eventually reconnect. Or Brad could continue to smear Angelina and play it like everything is her fault.

    Ahhh pictures aren’t working on my phone! I wanna see!

    As for Brad & the boys: he’s reaping what he sowed. I feel bad for the whole family because it’s a loss for everyone to not have those relationships, but also it was up to him to protect his own relationships with his kids, not on Angelina.

    • Oracle says:

      I agree @runcmc. Brad is indeed reaping what he sowed. It didn’t have to be this way, but he’s WEAK AF. The same vague weak sauce shite he’s doing now, he could have done better and stronger when all this ish went down. Right off the bat, simple: “I AM BRAD PITT & I’M AN ALCOHOLIC. My years of drinking and substance abuse have caught up with me, and led me to become someone I didn’t recognize. I am dedicated to making amends to my son, wife and entire family.”

      The fact is, he didn’t do this. In fact, he let a silly rumor about an affair with then pregnant Marion Cotilliard be bandied about – got all the Ani-stans giddy for 2 seconds. He then proceeded to promote a movie no one wanted to see, especially in the wake of his alleged familial abuse, as if nothing had happened. He later proceeded to plant stories about Angelina, making her the bad guy.

      How you gonna be going to your AA meetings, getting court ordered therapy, AND being investigated, and try to make Angelina Jolie the BAD GUY??!!

      WELL, he did it because he knows people, especially some women, live to hate her and make her the villain. He did it because it worked, the tabloids picked up there, from where they had left off covering ‘the triangle.’ Look what evil Angie drove poor Brad to do. You got pieces written on this family’s dissolution, like it was ‘War of the Roses,’ and had just organically come to some turbulent end, not because he’s an aggressive drunk, but because….Angelina.

      The ish was F’d up. What he did to her in the intervening years. His dumb tabloidy moves, his silence. Ugh. WEAK.

      Anyway, his kids saw ALL OF THIS, how he handled this whole bad mess, and how he put a shitton MORE on their mother to handle, by NOT fessing up and doing THE WORK!

      THAT is why, he STILL can’t and won’t be able to mend fences with his kids, especially the older boys.

      THAT is why they still really don’t want anything to do with him.

      HOW do you respect someone like that? Angelina I’m sure will never look at him the same way again. It was one thing when he let his old pals ish-talk her on Andy Cohen’s show and would say jack, but this is HIM doing that BS now. No, she’s good and DONE.

      He could fix it, he could still make his kids somewhat proud. Try a MEA CULPA, a REAL ONE this time, heartfelt and brutal on HIS OWN DANG SELF. That would go a long way.

      But I don’t think he can.

  2. Snazzy says:

    For some reason the photos aren’t coming up. It says incorrect URL 😣

  3. Sierra says:

    “Now Maddox is away, Pax won’t be influenced”… Shame on Brad for continuing to put the blame on Maddox for the estrangement. Maddox is a child while Brad is a man in his 50s. It’s really disgusting.

    Angelina looks beautiful these days and I want that headband for when I travel through the underground. I could use that to get a seat during the rush hour 😂

    • roseplot says:

      I hope this is made up by US Weekly because this is a pretty jacked up comment and puts the blame on Maddox with regards to Pax not wanting to have anything to do with him. Pretty sure Pax can think for himself and knows how he feels about the fractured relationship.

    • A. says:

      That sounds exactly like Brad. Ever since she filed for divorce his sources have run to US Weekly, Page six and People magazine trying to put the blame on Angelina and Maddox instead of himself. He seems to make almost no effort with the kids and despite them coming to an agreement for custody a while ago Angelina still has them most of the time. He hasn’t even been seen with the kids anywhere in public in more than 3 years. It’s really fucked up.

    • olive says:

      it’s bullshit because pax is old enough to know his own feelings on his dad. it’s initializing to claim he has to be under someone else’s influence and surely can’t be making the decision to estrange himself all on his own.

  4. dlc says:

    I love the headband, hate the dress – it’s very mother of the bride. Elle`s suit is cute.

    • Snowslow says:

      My opinions exactly.

    • lucy2 says:

      Same here. Love the headband, but the dress is very “secret mistress at the funeral” to me.
      Love Elle’s red suit.

      • tempest prognosticator says:

        “…secret mistress at the funeral.” Thanks for the laugh, lucy2. And I agree, but the headband makes it a little edgier. Elle’s look is brilliant.

      • LahdidahBaby says:

        Lucy2, love yr “secret mistress at the funeral” description of the dress–brilliant!

    • minx says:

      It’s dowdy, even on Angelina Jolie.

      • L4frimaire says:

        Agree. That dress looks matronly. McQueen used to be an edgy brand but now so boring and establishment.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      ditto. she’s been absolutely killing it, until this dress.

      it’s def more her go-to style, though…much more so than the other dresses on this tour.

    • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

      Ditto: LOVE the headband. I’m really glad they’re making a comeback, because I’m continually wanting to push my hair off my face! I always keep one in my bag lol. Now, I’m “in fashion” and not just dorky! 😄

      Elle’s suit is gorgeous: color, cut… only thing I hate is the elasticized waistband! Either hide it with a belt (and lose the tie), or make it a “regular” waistband (button/zipper) on the side, hidden.

      Love Angie’s makeup here. Makes her look softer and younger.

  5. Lucy says:

    Love the headband detail! It’s kind of unlike her to wear such things, isn’t it? She’s totally pulling it off, though. Love Elle’s little tie, too!! She always keeps it interesting.

  6. Seraphina says:

    I love how AJ is right next to the headpiece for Maleficent. Not a great look but I’m so happy she is experimenting with different looks. That’s what it’s all about!!! Everyone looks great.

  7. Lisa says:

    Love the headband. It is nice to see Angelina venturing out of her style zone.

  8. TeddyPicker says:

    Angie has had a lot of fun with the fashion on this junket. It’s interesting to see her lean back into actress mode. During their marriage, the whole narrative was “she’s moving away from acting, maybe she’ll direct but it’ll be mostly humanitarian work from now on” I wonder if it was the break up or just general life-direction rethinking that made her change her mind. With the Marvel movie and probably another Malificent in the works, she’s on at least a 5-year plan…

    • Yup, Me says:

      She has 6 kids and an incomplete financial agreement from her divorce. Homegirl has bills to pay.

      I’m glad to see we get more films and interviews with her as a result but she probably really did intend to step back more permanently.

      • Some chick says:

        Homegirl isn’t exactly under financial pressure (not like you and me, haha). She can do what she wants. And she is. It’s glorious!

        I remember her saying, years ago, that the reason she did the Lara Croft action flicks is that she wanted her kids to think she was cool. <3 that. <3 that 4EVA. Those movies were dumb, and she knew they were dumb. But, her kids thought she was cool! I will love her forever (leg and all) just for that.

      • ennie says:

        She did the 1st Lara Croft before adopting. She went back to action movies after the death of her mom because she thought she needed to do an action packed film to take her mind out of heavy thoughts.

  9. Pati says:

    Elle’s outfit gere is FLAWLESS!!!

  10. Eve says:

    I *NEED* that headband. If I can’t find one to buy I can make one out of an old choker I have.

  11. M says:

    That red suit 😍😍😍

  12. Originaltessa says:

    This is not a good silhouette for her… But I appreciate that she’s seemingly having a little fun with fashion this junket.

  13. GreenQueen says:

    I need that headband. I have loved the styling from all these ladies during this tour and it makes me so happy to see Angie back in her element! I cannot wait to see this movie. If anyone finds the headband or something similar, can you link it?!

  14. Sojaschnitzel says:

    Love the headband and had the same when I was a goth teen.
    What I love even more though is that recently she’s all smiles and fashion.

  15. SJR says:

    I like the red outfit!

  16. Evie says:

    Angelina is a beautiful woman. She’d even look terrific in a potato sack. I loved the silver dress on her a couple days ago. I wish she’d ditch the black more often.

    I FLOVE Elle’s outfit. Red’s my color and Elle is rocking it. The culottes are a nice change from dresses and gowns.

  17. eve says:

    Angelina style is off because her stylist is trying to cover her tattoos .

  18. ChillyWilly says:

    I really like both of these looks, especially Elle’s suit. Blondes look so good in red. I too want AJ’s headband!

  19. Lizzie says:

    i love elle’s style. i’m just noticing in this press tour that she has a really beautiful head of hair!

  20. Zut alors says:

    I don’t really care for the dress. I think she wore a similar at the 2014 Maleficent press junket in LA. I would have preferred if she’d worn a trouser suit in green or peacock blue a la the YSL Le Smoking suit.
    I do like the headband and her shoes with the spikes are killer.
    Are there any more planned appearances for next week? It’s such a shame she stopped appearing on talk shows. She was so lovely and engaged well when she did those back on the day.

  21. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Love the headband. But I love Elle’s red suit even more!
    As for Angelina helping Brad to mend his relationship with Maddox…whatever. It’s not her job to fix something that Brad’s actions broke. And considering that both Maddox and Pax were old enough to truly understand and see what went on between their parents I’m not surprised that they cut off contact with him.

  22. Veronica S. says:

    Is she wearing the Versace Medusa heels?? I love those shoes. If I had $1000 lying around, I’d drop it in an instant for them. They’re so much fun and perfect for that outfit. I feel like it’s been a while since we’ve seen a full smile out of her, too? Girl is getting a glow up from this divorce. Says a lot about how unhappy those last years must have been.

  23. Nicegirl says:

    Posing in front of the horn graphics is exactly the kind of yer mom dot com shiz I embrace myself as a dorky mama and just endears Angie to me all the more!

  24. Just Saying says:

    For all of you yapping that Angie chose the women’s shelter to hit back at Brad – it’s a charity that Robert Procop has supported for a long time.

    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.

    • Hmmm says:

      Yeah she just decided to all of a sudden support that project. It’s exactly what happened to her and her kids but luckily they had money to move from house to house while they transitioned.

      Btw no one even mentioned that in this thread. 🤣

  25. ojulia123 says:

    That headband is EVERYTHING!

  26. Naddie says:

    I love how she seems to be having fun promoting this film (that I’ll totally see) and here she looks like some kind of a mother angel. It’s not the first time she gives off this ethereal, wise vibe and it’s such a surprise for someone who used to have such a sexy wild persona.

  27. mag336 says:

    Why does she always look stiff and disconnected when posing with another female? Just odd.

    • Hmmm says:

      What pix are you looking at? Angelina, Elle and Michelle look very comfortable with each other throughout the promotion. Gay twitter is loving her vibe with Michelle. 🤣

  28. serena says:

    They both look gorgeous! I’m loving their fashion!

  29. JanetFerber says:

    Didn’t care for Angelina’s outfit, but gorgeous looks will get you through any blah ensemble.
