Angelina Jolie wore Valentino to the UK premiere of ‘The Eternals’: cute or meh?

Angelina Jolie with her 5 kids at the "Eternals" UK gala screening

Angelina Jolie and her Brood (minus Pax, the George Harrison of the Jolie-Pitts) went to the London premiere/screening of The Eternals last night. I love the fact that five out of six kids made this European journey with her. Considering how much time they’ve all spent in England over the years, my guess is that many of the kids have little British friends too, and they probably relish these trips to see their buds across the pond. Didn’t Maddox have a British girlfriend at some point?

At the premiere, Angelina wore a Valentino ensemble. All I can say about her London looks is The Sack Will Out!! Angelina can pretend, for a short time, to be a glamour-puss in figure-hugging Versace and Dolce & Gabbana, but the sacks will creep back in. I would imagine her new stylist (Jason Bolden) saw this sacky-Valentino on the runway and was like “yaaas, that’s for La Jolie!” Little Shiloh is wearing one of Angelina’s old Dior dresses – when Angie wore this, it was tea length. Someone upcycled it and turned it into an above-the-knee look. That actually makes me a little bit uncomfortable, the fact that they cut off a foot of fabric on a lovely Dior. But Angelina is apparently really into teaching her kids about recycling clothes and wearing vintage and all of that. Anyway, yeah, I hate this Valentino on Angelina. But the kids are cute. Knox looks like such a little badass! Zahara’s braids!

After the premiere/screening, Angelina took the kids to the afterparty. They changed their clothes and, again, the sack will out. This is just a full-on caftan. Again, the kids look cute.

    I actually love this look!!! everything is on point here.

    minus Pax, the George Harrison of the Jolie-Pitts)….excuse my ignorance what does that mean ?

  3. Eurydice says:

    Not meh, but blegh.

  4. Keats says:

    I am so bad at remembering kid’s names so bear with me, but I am loving that grey sweater/jacket her son is wearing

  5. Becks1 says:

    I am normally so anti-sacks on her lol but I actually kind of like the red carpet look? I wish she had done her hair a little different (a cute, well-styled ponytail would have worked I think) but I really like the skirt, I think a different hairstyle would have helped like I said and something different about the top…..either the blouse by itself or a different top with the jacket (assuming this ensemble isn’t a dress.) This reminds me of Salma’s dress from this event, where I keep looking at it and tilting my head and thinking, do I like it? do I not? I can’t decide, ha.

    At least her post-party caftan is a great color, lol.

    the kids look cute and like they are enjoying this, I wonder if some of them are sick of seeing this movie by this point, lol (I was wondering that about the actors too, how many times do they end up seeing this movie? I wonder if there’s a private room where they hang out and drink champagne while its playing.) I also wonder if some of the kids stayed in London? Because she went from Rome to LA back to london, maybe some of them just stayed across the pond?

    • Noki says:

      I was wondering the same thing lol surely they must only do the red carpets and go hang out in a lounge for a couple of hours. But i remember Matt and Bens premiers at the end they stand up and people clap for them.
      Also does the studio pay for entourages and family or is that on the stars dime ?

    • Tanguerita says:

      Why LA? as far as the story goes, she went from Italy to UK, without flying back to the states.

      • Becks1 says:

        You’re right, I was getting the premieres all confused, lol. For some reason I thought there was an LA premiere mixed in there somewhere. I think I got the Spencer premiere confused with these, LOL.

    • Myra says:

      I kind of liked it too because it was a different kind of “sack” look. I don’t know why but I thought it worked well for a London premier too.

    • Tris says:

      I doubt very much they actually sit and watch the film. I work with much more minor VIPs and they rarely watch the whole thing, but sneak off to a comfy green room.

  6. Kviby says:

    I like both of her looks here. She is great at representing modest fashion from time to time, a rarity for a Hollywood actress

    • Tris says:


    • SomeChick says:

      yes! normalize comfort on the red carpet. she looks polished and lovely, and comfortable. not everything has to be see through or skin tight.

      personally I would love to wear both of her looks. (well except for the beige shoes, so over beige.)

  7. Sara says:

    I like it – she looks very classy. Also I would wear this. I like it better than some of the things she wears that make her look like a clothing rack. She is always very beautiful but she just looks happier and healthier in something like this.

  8. Gil says:

    She always makes the caftan look so chic and fashionable.

  9. MsIam says:

    I like the black jacket, especially the bows on the sleeves. But that voluminous skirt has got to go. It looks like way too much fabric to drag around. The kids all look cute. No comment on the caftan but why would you wear those beige pumps with it? Cute, sexy sandals would look much better.

  10. Mina_Esq says:

    Sorry, but Zahara was the true fashion star in that group. That color on her is fire. And Angelina can get away with terrible dresses because she has a million dollar face.

    • Kristen820 says:

      Came here to say the same. That kinda mustard yellow is hard to pull off, but Z absolutely glows in it!

    • luna says:

      I came to say the same thing. Zahara looks amazing, others not so much. Though Angie and Shi nailed it at the afterparty.

    • Yup, Me says:

      Agreed on all counts. Zahara’s dress is stunning on her. The eye goes to her in all pictures she’s in. AND HER DRESS HAS POCKETS!

      I do love Angie in the green, though.

    • TeamMeg says:

      Zahara is pretty much a fashion icon. I wonder if she will go into fashion design, or something like that. She always looks terrific—such a great style sense!

    • lucy2 says:

      I agree, that looks great on her. I don’t like Angelina’s ensemble, too bulky.

    • Anne Call says:

      Yes, I love her look. The recycled beaded evening dress from one of the other premieres just seemed a bit old on her. This is very cute and and fun.

  11. EveV says:

    I actually love both of Angelina Jolie’s dresses. She looks amazing.
    I love Angelina and think she is incredible.
    All the kids look happy, healthy, and just as gorgeous as their mother.. I have to say, I think Zahara wins the fashion post today. Her braids with that shade of yellow is fire on her.

  12. Mireille says:

    Not a fan of the first tuxedo-like outfit. Too much fabric IMO, but THAT FACE is all you need to make the entire ensemble POP!!! The kids looks so cute and Zahara is rocking that yellow color. Vivienne is sooo cute in her little white dress. I read that this is the same dress that she wore at an earlier premiere.

    Recycling outfits is nothing new for this new family. They’ve been wearing each other’s hand-me-downs over the years. And I remember Angie wearing the same black summer dress every day for a couple of months., Beautiful family all around.

  13. khaveman says:

    Doesn’t even close to fit her frame, but we’re used to that w Angelina. Zahara’s look is great.

  14. WithTheAmerican says:

    I love that big skirt with the black jacket but I would have liked a less voluminous, puffy top. But hey when you’re Angie you can wear a sack because the Face is all she needs.

  15. FHMom says:

    The kids are precious. I love that they want to accompany her.

  16. Twinkle says:

    I’m more excited by Shiloh exploring new looks!

  17. rawiya says:

    I just wish the white part looked more ‘tucked in’ at the front. I don’t like how it goes down in the V-shape at the front. Otherwise, love it! Love her little gang of not-so-mini me’s. Love the “We’re cooler than you” look Maddox and Knox are giving, because it’s true: they are!

    • Sudie says:

      My only complaint as well. Would have looked better with a snug waist line, but I guess that would have looked too much like the Sharon Stone outfit.

    • TeamMeg says:

      Same. What is going on with that waistline? 🤷🏻‍♀️ Are the top and bottom connected? Impossible to tell! But other than that, I love the look. Taffeta skirt is glory, and Angie always looks her best in a white blouse and black tuxedo jacket imho.

      • Anne Call says:

        It’s strange but the designer (Pierpaola Piccioli) showed the skirt on his Instagram account and it looked like a regular waistband on the skirt. It’s a stunning design on Instagram but I confused about what’s going on with the shirt and I don’t really like the overall outfit on Angelina.

  18. Jenny says:

    Best she has looked in years.

  19. Jules says:

    She looks great and comfortable. The kids are all adorable– Knox is too cute, Zahara is always stunning. They all have their own style and seem like a cozy family unit.

  20. Same says:

    She is luminous and looks to be much healthier and in a better place — she also still looks below a healthy body mass .
    I hope she continues her road of healing .

  21. Jais says:

    I’m into it, even the volume of the skirt. Diff tastes, I guess. Z looks so good, the color, the braids, the pockets!

  22. TeamMeg says:

    With her hair back, and face made up for the red carpet, Shiloh looks so much like her mom, right? Beautiful. ❤️

  23. Grant says:


    Angelina is like Gizelle on Real Housewives of Potomac, she has beautiful woman syndrome. She’s gorgeous so she’s never had to worry about what she wears. Hence her oft disastrous fashion choices.

  24. JustMe says:

    I LOVE this look on Angie
    And have you seen pics of her and Richard Madden interacting 🤤
    Not sure of his relationship status but god they would be HOT together

  25. Case says:

    The skirt really kills the look for me. Had it been a little more fitted or at least not SO voluminous, it could’ve worked.

  26. Watcher says:

    I really like this look, lolz! I just like that she has her own defined style and it’s not “look at me in my skivvies nearly naked” like so many stars. And her kids are the cutest, nice that they’re turning out for her premieres.

  27. AC says:

    It’s couture. I can’t afford it, but it looks fab.

  28. Margo says:

    These kids have modeling or influencer or acting careers in their future. They are all so beautiful. Shiloh is absolutely stunning at age 15. Bet Angie will hold off on letting the kids get into any ‘fame’ business till their late teens/early twenties. She knows all the pitfalls!

  29. Katty says:

    Ange is so beautiful she could wear a literal sack and still be a knockout. I love this look on Z – looks younger and fresher. Just a stunning, genetically blessed bunch!

  30. Kay says:

    So glad that Z is wearing clothes for herself and not Angie’s clothes. Z looks lovely in bright colors and Angie’s old clothes are black or white and look really boring on her kids.

  31. Kay says:

    Chloe the director seems to be getting a lot of criticism for the film. Lauren Ridloff said she wasn’t getting proper direction for someone who is deaf and Angelina intervened to help her.

    • Courtney B says:

      It seemed the opposite to me. Ridloff had good to say. But Angie did make a helpful suggestion

    • gossipy gigi says:

      From what I’ve read/heard, that’s the least of this film’s problems.

      This film has Marvel’s first LGBT character creating the atomic bomb (the character, Phastos, breaks down in Hiroshima after the bomb has been dropped) and it has overpopulation in third world countries as the reason why the Earth is dying/as the reason behind global warming (problematic for a lot of obvious reasons).

      I was extremely excited for this film, but now I wonder what’s up with all these bad creative decisions that should’ve been gone after the script’s second draft.

  32. Jayna says:

    I loved both outfits on Angelina. They are very striking on her, especially that green caftan. The adorable mustard yellow dress Zahara is wearing really looks great next to Angie’s green caftan gown when they are side by side. Maddox seems like such a really good young man. I have such a soft spot for him, because I remember him as a little baby and toddler when Angie adopted him and they were inseparable. Shiloh, when she smiled on another photo I saw — wow — she is a young Angelina all over again. The resemblance is striking. On another red carpet the other day I really saw a blend of Angie’s parents, Marcheline and Jon. But when she smiled in a photo (not on here,) she was all Angie.

    Nice pics.

  33. april says:

    Love the green dress too! I don’t think anyone could rock either of these dresses better than Angie. All the kids are adorable.

  34. canichangemyname says:

    Zahara looks AMAZING in that yellow!! I’m not really a Jolie stan, I like her fine but it’s whatever for me – but I do love her style. Sack me up! Her sacks are low-key, look comfortable, and she can basically pull off any look anyway. I’m here for it. She has a lovely family, and I’m happy for her.

  35. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Omg I love this look. That skirt is amazing. Absolutely fabulous.

  36. Katebush says:

    I love the skirt it’s beautiful fabric. But the top half is too baggy.. I feel like that needs to be fitted to balance the bottom half out … like Kirsten Stewart’s look but less skin!
    She is soo beautiful though and good on her for sticking with her kaftans

  37. Kaykay says:

    All I can see is Zahara. She looks fenomenal.
    It looks like she is the star, tbh.

    I hope they are as happy of a family as they seem. It seems like a fun gang and I’m happy they have each other.

  38. Serena says:

    I absolutely love Zahara’s whole look, Knox and Maddox also look very cool. Shiloh is so tall and I kinda want the jacket she wore at the afterparty.

    You can’t take the sack out of Angelina, and I kinda like that too, it’s sort of funny but she also looks good in everything so lol.
