Angelina Jolie's Backwards Dress Explained

Angelina Jolie's Backwards Dress Explained

Angelina Jolie wore her cornflower blue Max Azria gown backward at Sunday’s SAG Awards in Los Angeles.

Her stylist Jen Rade tells Us Weekly that Angie decidedly wore the dress from back-to-front to make it “more blouson” (a dress with a fitted waistband over which material blouses).

The way Angie wore her dress — from the Spring 2009 collection — showed off her back tattoos more. She finished off her look with Tiffany & Co. jewels and Christian Louboutin shoes.

Who wore Max Azria best — ANGELINA JOLIE or THE RUNWAY?

15+ pictures inside of Angelina Jolie‘s backwards dress…

    It’s backward because she’s fashion FORWARD. BBBBWWWWHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA!!!

  • teri

    She wore it beautiful.

  • Cheery

    Angelina OF COURSE!!

  • Tijen

    PT- that’s funny!!!

  • teri

    Could you imagine if she had wore that long cut in the front? Poor Brad would have been on alert all night, lol. I don’t think she needs to dress like a sl*t like others to get attention. She has a man she’s perfectly happy with and doesn’t desire other mens approval.

  • bella

    I think Angelina wore it best. I think it is a lot sexier to show off your back and then have a low cut front dress on.

  • soopx

    Just Gorgeous,as always.

  • andamentothat

    Ange wore it way better.. The color does nothing to the model.. she looks washed out, ange breathes life into it

  • http://www.justjared.com Kay

    The dress is still fugly both ways. Can’t believe I’m saying this, but Angie wore it better.

  • 4

    I like the way she wore it, but honestly- tattoos are SO ugly. Skin is beautiful. Why do people have to get graffiti all over themselves? To me, it is a burning need for attention, and that is really sad.

  • ebmo

    Angie of course!

  • lulu

    it looks better on angie than it does on the runaway :)

  • obvs

    The model, obviously. Jolie looks like a hag.

  • estelle

    ANGELINA JOLIE OF COURSE!!!!!!!

    I just love this color on her

  • estelle

    PT- ROTFLOL……..you are so right!!!!!!! wickedly right…hahahahaha.

  • an oldie

    The dress works for both women IMO. On the runway it’s OK to be skin baring sexy, at a SAG event, it’s better to be a little bit on the conservative side. So I vote YAY on both.

  • LJ

    both are awful, that dress is so …

  • http://www.google.com Kay

    Okay, love the dress. But Jared, why post this? It’s not really big news. I can’t believe you all worship her. She a decent actress but did anyone actually see her in Changeling? Talk about overacting! “I want my OSCAR!!!!” is what she’ll be saying when she loses again. She and Brad went empty-handed at the Critics Choice Awards, the Golden Globes, and the SAG awards so don’t expect them to win anything at the Oscars. btw, if any of you bring up Jennifer Aniston and her so called “Dog movie” you might wanna notice the so called “dog movie” is doing better than brad’s “Forest Gump Part Two”.

    STFU and go back in your hole, Shitzy. Always with the whining…

  • Lillianne

    The designer should thank Angelina for wearing it backwards. The lines are beautiful.

  • mike

    its gorgeous

  • haglina

    The model, of course. Jolie looks ridiculous in this dress. Well, nothing screams “Couture” like prison tattoos.

  • vickifromtexas

    the model who is flat chested, looks very pretty. angelina who is more endowed looks better with the dress the way she wore it.

    pt, that was funny. = )

  • teri

    Seriously get real skaterchick. Brads move has done extremely well for more mature audiences. A dog flick is for everyone. By the way Angelina can hold her own without cute dog posters to sell it. Without the dog jens movie would have flopped like the rest.

  • a total fan

    Jolie

  • no doubt

    angie of course! the dress looks better with the back showing anyway. sexier.

  • dvd

    This dress is fine either way. This is a clever design for the designer. I think Angie wanted to wear that way b/c she did not want to have double sided tapes on her boobs, and it was easier to move around. It is still very SEXY to me.

  • teri

    omg you’re kidding right JJ? I just typed my last comment and pushed submit and a message came up that said “your typing to fast, slow down”. bwahahahah

  • STFU

    Oh Angelina is soooooooooooo beautiful!!! Not!!! Who cares?!!!

  • anoble

    I love the way Angie wore the dress – the color looks good on her.

  • don’tcare..

    she looks great.
    besides if she wore it in the front they would have
    got on her for showing of her chest.
    she wore it backwards&people still get on her.
    She’s constantly between a double-edged sword.
    no matter what she does people hate.
    but hey atleast she is happy, you see it in her face.
    she’s got her beautiful family&brad.
    As for the Jen Aniston comments, i’m sorry but
    she is a clueless, misguided loser.
    you know that she has never wanted kids.
    godforbid she loses her body.
    It’s no wonder Brad fell fo Angie.
    Jen Aniston is too “Hollyweird” to have kept him.
    she cares more about her career than anything else.
    besides she lost all my respect when she got together
    with that dog “John Mayer”.

  • such a joke

    She was too drunk to put it on right.
    Did you see her trying to sneak the grey goose vodka out of the party? Tacky and drunk.

  • jello

    i doubt angie would even have worn it the way they did on the runway.

  • It’s official!

    Grangelina is not wanted for Tomb Raider 3!!!
    No one wants to see Granny’s bony ass! Out with the old in with the new hotties!

  • jolielove~

    whatever she wears looks great on her. it shows her sense of fashion.

    WARNING FOR MIMI – TABLOID INFORMATION AHEAD…DON’T SAY YOU WEREN’T TOLD AND HOLD YOUR BTICHIN’ CUZ I DON’T CARE!
    .
    Now that I’ve got that out of the way…
    .
    I was reading Jezebel’s tabloid roundup. See if this line from their OuttaTouch summary sounds familiar…

    .

    After the Berlin premiere of Benjamin Button, Brad Pitt stayed out til 2 a.m. and drank so much beer “he could barely walk.” Angie was home with the kids. A source says “Angie refers to him as her seventh child. She thinks he’s immature.”

    .
    Yep…that’s right…it’s the mantra of our old friend DJ, who spent 4 days posting info that Brad had stayed out until 3am, 4am…and finally 2am. Guess we know who DJ works for now, huh?

  • no doubt

    nothing deters bringing up that aniston ssLutt than bringing it up yourself, right?

  • shenanyginz

    i think its a pretty ugly dress…

  • lurker

    I definitely lke the way Angie wore the dress. It looks elegant and classy.

  • jenny

    angelina of course!!
    she’s so fashion savvy.

    her way looks wayyy better than the runway look.
    just my opinion :)

    Passing Through,
    Make me shut up. I thought so. Oh it doesn’t matter. Angie’s former bodyguard is writing a book about Angelina and how(accoeding to him) Brad and Angie were sleeping together while Brad was married to ANiston. It’s also gonna share secrets on Brangelina’s sex life and their dirty secrets. I can’t wait to get my own copy of it!

  • JGP

    she has terrible fashion sense

  • anoble

    Brad seems to like the way Angie wore it!

    Lets for a moment pretend all your dellusions are true.
    Who cares?
    Angie and Brad are still having hot bangin’ sex.
    They have a beautiful family and no book is going to change that.

  • huh

    Yep sure looks like it!

  • vickifromtexas

    anoble, i hadn’t seen that picture. i love it. how are things?

  • Neil

    Question: is E! trying to get revenge (I just watched the Canadian version=embarrassing) because of their recent flub on national TV c/o the JoliePitts or are they just incurable filchers who can’t help but go from obsequious to vicious behavior in one breath?

  • xena

    the model

    and the original designer must be pissed because she made a lot of bad dressed lists..

  • African Girl

    PT…Rotflmao! Yeah, she is fashion forward. You’d have to be as flat as a board to wear the dress the other way around. Besides can you imagine the uproar if AJ had worn it that way!!! :shock:
