Angelina Jolie wore Versace at the Tony Awards & won an award for producing

The Tony Awards were held last night in NYC. Angelina Jolie was there, with her daughter Vivienne! Not only that, but Angelina won a Tony Award! The backstory: Vivienne Jolie is a theater geek and she saw an LA theater production of The Outsiders (which had been adapted into a musical). Vivienne dragged her mom to the LA theater and Angelina loved it too, so Angelina offered to produce the musical as it made its way to Broadway, with Vivienne working as her assistant. The musical debuted on Broadway a few months ago, in time for Tony eligibility and The Outsiders just won the 2024 Tony Award for Best Musical. Meaning, Angelina won a Tony as a producer. She’s halfway to her EGOT status. She’s OT! (She’s also won three Golden Globes, two SAGs and she has been nominated for two Emmys.)

So, for the Tonys, Angelina wore a velvet Atelier Versace gown in an interesting shade of green. Vivienne was her date and Vivienne matched her mom. What a moment for this theater kid – Vivienne was probably in seventh heaven around all of those theater people. I hope she networked and booked some jobs or internships – she turns 16 years old next month, and clearly, this is what she wants to do with her life.

Angelina also debuted a new tattoo – a small, delicate little bird on her chest. I normally don’t like chest tattoos on women, but this is really cute.

    I love angelina, her tatoos are always cool, but I hope that tatoo is a henna design. It seems pretty muted for a new tatoo? Im not into it at all. Anyway, congrats to her and I see she’s been doing a little lip injection?

    • Joanne says:

      Oh please! Angelina is the reason people started getting lip injections. She’s always had beautiful full lips.

    • GrnieWnie says:

      yeah, no, Angelina is the spitting image of her mother. Look at photos of both her and her mother when young (and wow, does Shiloh ever look like a young Jon Voigt!).

      In fact, Angie has never struck me as particularly hung up on her appearance. She had tattoos before they were particularly mainstream or cool. She’s never been OTT in terms of hair or makeup or style. You can’t be high maintenance and spend lots of time in refugee camps.

    • Colleen says:

      Ummm, what? Lip filler? Please. She has always looked like that.

    • Amy Bee says:

      No those are her real lips that she got from her mother and Shiloh as the same lips.

    • SpankyB says:

      As you age your lips will deflate/get thinner. My full lips aren’t as full as they used to be, so I wouldn’t be surprised if she plumped them a little, but also wouldn’t be surprised if she hasn’t. I was in my 40’s when I noticed the difference on me.

      • Jackiejacks says:

        All of these celebrities have had work done to their faces. Even Angelina. While she had a good canvas to start with she’s definitely tweaked things along the way. It is what it is.

      • GrnieWnie says:

        @Jackiejacks I don’t think so, no. Age changes your face. I don’t think that every single actress has had work. Especially when an actress comes from a wealthy Hollywood family, they don’t need success in the same way that someone else might be more desperate for. Look at Dakota Johnson – I don’t think she’s had anything done (I notice Kate Hudson got lip filler recently, but she was/is? a smoker).

        I don’t think Angelina has had work done because I don’t think she cares all that much about acting and being in front of the camera. Plus she looks virtually exactly the same as she did when she was very young, save for the obvious in terms of aging.

        I find the internet can be overly cynical in their insistence that everyone’s had hundreds of extensive procedures done.

    That new tattoo someone said she got with Shilo. Congratulations to AJ and
    to win the Tony on Father’s Day was incredible! Congratulations to Viv too!

  3. Thinbalina says:

    So proud and happy for Angelina! When the director won her and Viv were crying; I thought that was cute. Angie had some happy news and am happy for her and for Viv to experience this.

    Also, I thought the outsides musical number was great especially the storm and fighting scene. It should’ve won.

  4. Mimi says:

    I love Viv’s outfit do cute and youthful. Ang let her kid be a kid and dress like a kid! Kudos!

    • Proud Mary says:

      I love that she just seems to allow her kids to dress the way they want. They don’t seem to be stage managed.

    • JudyB says:

      I also liked that when she was on stage with a group of people with her while she was getting her award, she pulled her daughter to the front and put her arm around her! Excellent mom.

    • ravensdaughter says:

      I love that Angelina is a mom who absolutely gets it. She knows each one of her children so well that she fosters their passions and interests and lets them shine!!

  5. sevenblue says:

    Congratulations to them. That is a very pretty dress. I love that her kids have different interests in life. They look very independent, but still loving and supportive family. I wish all the happiness and peace for them.

  6. North of Boston says:

    Congrats Angelina!

    And she can do as she pleases with her own chest, especially given her history and tough decisions after finding out she had a BRCA1 gene mutation.

    • Mireille says:

      I’m not a tattoo fan, but I love this one and its placement. It’s beautiful and its placement is better than any necklace or accessory.

  7. Eleonor says:

    I love the dress, but the fabric seems too heavy for me.

    • Elizabeth says:

      Me, too. Talked to an NYC friend on Saturday and she said it was really humid.

    • lucy2 says:

      It does look quite heavy, especially for NYC in June. The color is nice on her though, brings out her eyes.
      I’m not a big tattoo fan to begin with, and the placement of that one is not what I’d choose, but to each their own.

    • Somebody Nobody says:

      It gives Scarlett O’Hara in the drapes from Tara meets coastal green.

    • Chaine says:

      Im just so happy to see her in COLOR for a change! Even if it’s muted and looks like velour, what a lovely color on her.

    • Carmen says:

      I’ve always liked and admired Angie, but that dress reminds me of Miz Ellen’s po’teers.

    • Katya says:

      I’m betting it is one of her company’s fabrics. Atelier Jolie is dedicated to using fabric yardages to keep them out of landfills and etc.

      “We will use only leftover, quality vintage material and deadstock. You will be able to repair or upcycle pieces from your closet you wish to revive, perfecting fit, breathing new life into what could have been thrown away, and creating quality heirloom garments with personal meaning.”

      All that being said I love AJ forever but she needs a new hair person. I wonder if she lost hair from stress. That’s her natural colour but the extensions showed and it was not a good look.

  8. Chantal1 says:

    Congrats! Good to see Angelina being recognized for her work! She and Vivienne look great!

  9. Jais says:

    I like the shape, color and fabric of the dress but I’d maybe wear it in the winter. Unless it’s actually cooler than it looks. It’s got a very rich and luxurious vibe. They both looked so cute together.

  10. Schrodinger's Kate says:

    What a wonderful night for them! Congratulations to both. I love the colors they’re wearing. I love the gown. Viv looks cute. I just wish she had extended the color to her shoes. My daughter actually has that same style shoe but in a color that would have gone with the ensemble. But maybe I tend to be too matchy? I’m open to that criticism.

    It’s good to see them soaring with success after having to keep low profiles to protect themselves from all the dirt it-who-must-not-be-named kept slinging at all of them. “It” allowed ALL of his kids to be vilified by the public. Now as the youngest are closer to coming of age it’s good to see them exercising more freedom and being more openly defiant in public against everything that was being done to them in secret for so many years.

  11. Eurydice says:

    Congratulations to everyone involved – and to the author, who wrote the book when she was in high school.

  12. Elo says:

    I think the color of the dress is gorgeous- very close to her eye color. I do wish she would go back to the darker hair though. The blond washes her out a bit. I love Vivs suit too- super cute!

    • CLOVE says:

      @Elo, I think she will keep this hair color the same because Pitt seems to be trying to find brunettes that he thinks look like her. Plus, this is her natural color.

      • Lady D says:

        That’s too bad. I think she makes an absolutely gorgeous brunette. (jmo)
        Ditto Kate Middleton. Far more attractive as a brunette than with blonde highlights.

    • Arpeggi says:

      In my experience at least, blond-ish is much easier and simpler to maintain as you’re getting older than darker hair colors. The grey/white hair fades much more easily into the light brown/blond than it would in artificially darker roots. But whatever, she looks great, the fabric feels a bit too wintery for my taste, but perhaps it’s more comfortable if the AC was maxed up

      • Jais says:

        Yep, I’ve been struggling to stay brunette as the greys come in and it’s an expensive challenge. Throwing the blonde highlights in does make it easier and it’s a slippery slope.

  13. Ameerah M says:

    She looked stunning. Green is my favorite color and that shade of green is beautiful – matches her eyes! Also velvet is my favorite fabric so this just perfection for me.

    • Mireille says:

      Love the color — it highlights her flawless, beautiful skin tone, hair and eyes, but can’t agree with style and fabric. Not keen on velvet and there is way too much fabric on Angie. It’s hiding too much of her figure. BUT LOVE LOVE LOVE VIVIENNE’S outfit. She reminds me of my niece. She is sooooo cute. Too cute for words.

  14. BW says:

    It’s a pretty tattoo, but I wish it wasn’t where the pendant of a necklace is going to hang.

    The dress is giving me Carol Burnett “Went With the Wind” vibes. All it needs is a curtain rod.

    • Emcee3 says:

      Lol! … “Ah love your dress!” … “Thank you, Ah saw it in the window & Ah just couldn’t resist.”

  15. TheOriginalMia says:

    Love Angelina & Vic’s coordinated outfits. She reminded me of the Statue of Liberty.

    Was shocked The Outsiders won. Very happy for everyone involved.

  16. Zut Alors says:

    I love how folks on Twitter are plotting ways to get her an Emmy and Grammy to complete the EGOT 🥰. I’m so happy to see the outpouring of love for her.

    • Andrea1 says:

      The outpouring of love for her on twitter has been incredible and shocking to see also the plotting is hilarious 😂

  17. Amy Bee says:

    Congrats to Angelina and Vivienne. I hope it’s a confidence boost for both of them after what they’ve been through.

  18. MJM says:

    Angelina looks so beautiful and it’s refreshing to see Viv looking so youthful and natural with her own style.

  19. Grant says:

    Yay for her Tony! I think the tattoo looks tacky. The dress is ok but her styling is not great. Kiddo looks adorable.

  20. Mil says:

    Gorgeous mom and sweet teen, congrats!!

  21. Veronica S. says:

    She looks so much better now than when she was right in the middle of the court cases. I felt like you could literally see the stress eating her alive. Nice to see her out and about with her children and doing well – and in a color no less!

    • Eva says:

      She is still in the middle of court cases and probably will be for a long time. She simply focused on her passions and family and it helped her a lot.

  22. Ivy says:

    Not a big fan of the tattoo placement but I saw she got it matching with Shiloh. It looks like it’s flying to her heart and I can’t deny that’s very sweet!

    Vivienne must be so proud. She went from seeing a musical to being instrumental to helping it get on Broadway ASAP.

  23. Amy says:

    It feels so shocking to see Angie in a color like that! She’s usually in black or a neutral color. It looks lovely on her!

  24. orangeowl18 says:

    They both look lovely and it didn’t occur to me until just now that Vivienne is the spitting image of Brad.

  25. B says:

    Shiloh discovered the play and when Angelina saw it she knew it was good too. They both have such great instincts. I can only imagine what a great mother-daughter experience this whole process has been and to have it end with a Tony win?? Brava ladies Brava!

  26. Cheshire Sass says:

    That little tat is her “free bird” – I love it
