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?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    an oldie Says:

    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 Says:

    both are awful, that dress is so …

    Kay Says:

    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”.

    teri Says:

    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.

    dvd Says:

    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.

    don'tcare.. Says:

    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”.

    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?

    Passing Through Says:

    Duty called for a few minutes…but here’s some more tabloid hilarity from Jezebel…
    .
    Y’all know how I love it when the tabs contradict each other…
    .
    US Lies Weakly says The Urinator dumped X again…oops, my bad, they’re “cooling off” – in other words, his contract was over…again. It’ll probably be on again by the end of the week. Although…some folks here have said that X is doing the PR rounds with Drew and other castmates, so maybe the entertainment shows won’t ask her where her boytoy is…

    “She smothered him too much, just like last time,” a source says. “John didn’t have the heart to say he was dumping her again, so he said he needed some time to himself.”
    .
    Now segue to notOK…they claim X did the dumping…
    .
    Per Jezebel.com’s tabloid wrap up….
    .

    Jennifer Aniston has decided she’s “just not that into John Mayer” and is “flying solo at 40.” He keeps rock star hours and can be moody; she likes being home with her dogs. Besides, Jen is busy planning her big 40th birthday party February 11th and wants “everything to be perfect.”

    .
    In PTese…this is confirmation that Norman DID try to make a break for it last week when that damned ratzi made him go back! No doubt she was “smothering” Norman the same as The Urinator…and Vince…and PMBP…and Grip Boy…and Brad…etc. DON’T WORRY, NORMAN, I’M COMING TO FREE YOUR FURRY ASS! Martin didn’t mean just black people would be “free at last, free at last, thank God almighty, free at last!” I’m sure he meant the four-legged hostages of whiny, needy, self-absorbed, pretentious, inarticulate, fug tv hacktresses trying to transition to the silver screen at an age when more talented actresses can’t get hired because they’re too old! So pack up a hobo bag with your fave toys and a few dog biscuits, Norman, cuz I’m coming to set you free! (Unfortunately Dolly, having served less time in Doggy Prison that Norman, is ineligible for Operation: Rescue Poor Norman. Sadly she has another 12 years to serve on her prison term. Sorry, Dolly, but thems be the breaks…

    Hello JP fans..I was watching Seven today on cable and couldn’t help but think about the twins and Shi especially after noticing that Brad’s mouth is almost always slightly open. Oye, those babies are blessed two times over. I can’t wait for more pics tomorrow. BTW, I love Angie’s look. She doesn’t have to go for the shock element anymore but she still remains a wonderous and mystifying beauty. God bless the Jolie-Pitts!

    Speaking of the ho and dogs, could you run the following article through your BS detector and give us your take? Thanks.
    .
    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1127962/Jennifer-Aniston-saves-day-catching-runaway-dog.html

    OMFG! THE WOMAN X IS GIVING THE DOG TO? THAT’S ONE OF HER GODDESSES – KRISTIN HAHN!
    .
    I kid, I kid…maybe…
    .
    Seriously though…total PR set up by Huvane. Isn’t it awfully fortunate that X saved this pup just as the dog flick is falling like a stone in water down the box office revenue chart? The pooch couldn’t even make the top 15 this past weekend – a mere 6 weeks after release. Meanwhile, CCOBB and Slumdog were both in the Top 10 and they came out around the same time. Plus, those movies have Oscar noms out the wazoo.
    .
    Added to that, you have the story of how X didn’t think the ratzi for returning HER runaway pooch. She’s been dodging the ratzi since she came back from Meh-hee-co a single woman – again. BUT…she sure made sure the ratzi were following her Monday and then had the presence of mind to give the camera her best angle, ie, ass to the camera.
    .
    In a nutshell – it’s a PR move to revive the dog flick at the box office and detract from her own douchery. And let’s not forget that hte previous night all eyes were on Brad & Angie at the SAGs. What better way to rally the hens than to save a pooch. Tiny Tom has used this trick a number of times…only he saves people. So if X is gonna keep up with Tiny Tom (not to mention Angie helping save refugees)…she’s gonna have to up her game.

    Yup! And Brad is thinking ” That’s my woman! I’m hittin’ it! LOL.

    For some reason the way he lean on that line cord (?) is so sexy ; with his moustache, he looked so debonaire and had that “guilty/mischeivous look.” I wanna know what he’s thinking!

    I need to catch up on thread and brush up on few spelling/typing. LOL

    Angie looks pretty in that dress, not the best, but better than Longoria’s dress or Terri H.

    ummmmm…I think the blue color looks nice on her…very calming color. The dress on her…not too good. Seeing a bunch of tats all over a woman kinda ruins it. tacky.

    Also….noticed Angie seems to avoid wearing the curve fitting clothes she used to wear probably because her tummy area is not yet back in shape after the birth of twins. It’s only been 6 months so she wears clothes that fit a bit looser around the tummy area. Once she gets her tummy back in shape…she will probably start wearing more form fitting clothes.

    I’m going to see if I can put CCOBB’s box office success into perspective for the troll…dollars to donuts she doesn’t get it…
    .
    I’m not even going to compare it to the dog flick. I choose the Reese Witherspoon/Vince Vaughn romcom “Four Christmases”. This movie had a short running time – barely 80 minutes. Therefore when was shown on 2 screens of a mulitplex it played about 12 or 13 times each day. CCOBB when shown in 2 theaters was playing a maximum of 8 times each day.
    .
    We’ve already had the discussion of how much it cost to market CCOBB, but suffice it to say that the studio’s spent a good $40MIL marketing the VV flick. So that put it’s total budget around $120MIL. CCOBB will make back it’s money in worldwide DVD sales, but FC has to make it’s profit in U.S. DVD sales. On the whole I think CCOBB will make more money in the long run…but don’t tell the troll…
    .
    Here’s the info for Four Christmases. The movie has been playing for over 2 months in 52 of the 56 countries it’s scheduled to be released in.

    good evening JP fans – special hi to dina#1, senior, vickifromtexas and all the other regulars

    Are they still on about when Brad and Angelina started doing the two-backed beast? lol – I don’t care if they did it the first day they met. And I don’t think anyone else does at this stage other than the press and dumped, rejected and bitter women. Get. Over. It.

    If Mickey is really writing a story then I agree with an earlier poster – bring it on. Because guess what? They’ll still be in love, making fabulous movies with a world wide fan base. I happen to think that Bill Clinton was a great president and consider it a shame that so much time and money was spent on what he did in his broom closet. But we won’t go there…

    About the dress: IMO it looked great from the back – not so great from the front. Earrings could have been different. But ultimately, this is ANGELINA JOLIE we’re talking about. With that face, those eyes, she can pull off just about anything.

    Fans, this may sound wrong but….
    I dont care if Brad and Angie did it the first second while they met, I hope that they did it for real while filming those scenes and after. Who cares, those two had that crazy sex appeal from they one. Maniston lost her chance, and lost it big time! Sh!t happens, deal with it, we all have been cheated on once upon a time and we deal with it and move on. No need crying over split milk. I wish Brad came out and said, “look, I jumped Angie’s bones because I could not control myself…those lips, those eyes, that booty, those legs..wouldn’t you even if you had to tie her down????

    Angelina to ‘Slumdog’ Freida Pinto: ‘Keep It Real’

    “Slumdog Millionaire” stars Freida Pinto and Dev Patel are revealing everything to “Extra” – from Angelina Jolie’s advice, to Freida’s celeb crush and who Dev wants to work with next!

    The beautiful Freida Pinto enjoyed meeting Angelina Jolie at the Critics Choice Awards. Pinto says Jolie had some helpful tips, saying, “I didn’t say much. I was just like starring in awe for a bit… She was really wonderful to talk to and very supportive of newcomers… She’s just like, ‘Embrace it. Enjoy it and keep it real. Don’t get affected by all this. Enjoy every moment.’”

    She says she doesn’t care what people think of her NOR does she read gossip….uh huh, this just PROVES she does. People were talking about how dumb she was for wearing her dress backwards….now this ANNOUNCEMENT??? LOL she just gave herself away big time.

    Angie says she like to be comfortable in an outfit, so she loved the color and tried it both ways and felt it fitted and felt comfortable worn backward. She is a bit heavy up front for it to fit comfortable. I thought she gave the dress class. I have never known Angie to show her b***s on the red carpet. The dress looks good either way, but I thought Angie won this one without trying. We know there is no question about who the father is of those three bio babies. Brad is so guilty and he is loving every bit of it. GOOD LUCK TO THE JOLIE/PITTS[

    I love that the talk of the fashion industry (gossip wise) is how Angelina Jolie chose to wear her dress to the SAG awards. This is Priceless. I am just overjoyed that she did not have to wear the “stunner of the night”, and yet she gets all the attention.. Are people talking about the winners and what they wore.. NO just Angie. That is the point is it not. Angie and Brad have not won a single award thus far (But I hope the academy will fix that mistake for one of them), all the focus is on them..What will Angie wear? Will Brad cut the stach? I as a fan love it to no end. They don’t have to even try.. Hell they don’t even have to be in the Country. I’m sure all the celebs paying their publicist big money are wondering Why? This could be the reason for so many negative stories about the Brange. Think about it . They show all the other celebs that a publicist is not really needed. Talk about some scared people. They get PR without any help..

    Regarding the dress, I love that she does not feel the need to impress. She does not need to wow the world. And yet she still does. Take not new Hollywood.. Beauty and Class is a natural gift. It does not come to you because you put on a dress and get make up and hair done.. Angie has it without even trying.. Look as some videos of that show. Watch the people in the background.

Angelina picked a simple yet elegand gown because she knew people would be talking about her no matter what so why up the volume and take away from the winners by wearing a super duper ultra glam outfit dripping with jewels? Save that for the Cannes Film Festival where people would appreciate it.

    Angelina Jolie: ‘I Never Think Of Competing With Men In This Business’

    LOS ANGELES, Calif. —

    When it comes to the roles Angelina Jolie considers playing, the actress told Access Hollywood she’s not concerned whether the part was intended for a man or a woman – just that it’s a “great project.”

    Angelina talked to Access’ Nancy O’Dell Sunday at the Screen Actors Guild Awards about what it was like to replace Tom Cruise in an upcoming espionage thriller previously titled “Edwin A. Salt.”

    “I haven’t started filming yet,” Angelina said of her new project.

    “But, eventually you’re gonna start?” Nancy asked.

    “It will be (happening), yes,” the actress said of the revamped thriller.

    As for the fact that she’s taking over for Tom Cruise, the 33-year-old said it’s not something that she ever worried about.

    “I never think of competing with men in this business. I just like to do projects that I think are great projects,” Angelina told Access. “But, I like the idea that a serious spy thriller about a person who’s in the CIA, and deals with a lot of heavy things. It doesn’t have to always be a man… I think that’s a good thing.”

    And after she’s done with the CIA movie, Angelina told Access that she is considering taking up to two years off from acting.

    “I haven’t worked for about 14 months or something like that, so I’ll work a few months and then it’s Mister’s turn,” she said of her partner Brad Pitt. “We always take turns working so one of us can be with the kids at home.”

    As for the possibility that both she and Brad will take an extended absence from the spotlight – that is still up in the air.

    “We both want to,” Angelina told Nancy. “I have nothing lined up after ‘Salt,’ so, it may be… it may be another year, it might be two, I really don’t know.”

    Oscars talent roundup: Lead actress

    Angelina Jolie, ‘Changling’
    “I want my son back!” As often as Jolie’s Christine Collins makes her plea for her kidnapped child, each time she rings heartbreakingly true — and in doing so, leaves room to project her character’s deepening, Kafkaesque nightmare. When Collins is cruelly tossed into a psychiatric ward, Jolie excels in both the visceral crisis and the intellectual calculations toward freedom. In the film’s extended epilogue, which brings Collins a mixed bag of a catharsis, Jolie effectively underplays the final moments.

    Brad Pitt, ‘The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’
    As age and youth course through his body on separate trajectories, Pitt brings cautious gravity to the middle-aged Button as he visits a frenetic Daisy (Cate Blanchett) backstage at a Broadway show. But her sexualized spiritedness still feels out of synch to his old-fashioned, suit-and-tie romanticism, and suddenly a hopeful lover becomes something akin to a misunderstood guardian. “I’m happy for you,” he says regretfully, paternalistically, as she runs off with a new man.

    Gee AG, I never have to post because I always agree with you and you state “our” position so clearly LOL. AJ would have been falling out of that dress.
    She’s a Mom and a UN representative now with a different projected image. Both BP and AJ have said because of their children they are being more careful in the movies they choose so probably a permanent photo of inappropriate dress-wear splashed across public medias and subsequently archived in a tabloid could conceivably be a major concern. Maddox is of an age where he is able to read and he will notice those things. Boys at that age are embarrassed easily and he is very shy.
    All of the “fans” looking for a more overtly sexy AJ may be disappointed in the future…provocative dressing is for women who are seeking attention and confirmation. She has sex appeal in her voice, her face, her walk…clothes don’t matter when you have it where it counts. I think she has found comfort in herself with a more sophisticated, dignified less garish look not that she was ever garish IMO.
    As she is always stating very clearly she’s a Mom …that changes one’s outlook at least it does for a mature woman satisfied with her man and home-life. There is no reason for a woman to try to elicit sexy comments based on peacock dressing unless she is insecure, needs constant confirmation she is still attractive and/or looking to attract a mate. She’s done with that…time for the next stage in the cycle of life’s journey…can’t be wearing mid-thigh skirts with nipples showing throughout life…so cheesy and baiting…can you imagine a public figure doing that especially approaching 40? Can’t imagine who would stoop that low to get attention…go figure.
    For those looking for the same AJ from the past pre-BP…give it up and start looking at her life from her point of view. Watch an inspiring metamorphoses into a more grand and elegant style for a mother of six, UN ambassador and loving friend and supportive companion…it all fits together beautifully. She is clearly in control.

    age
    body
    hair

    Never nothing about talent and career success. She is going to be 40. That is not old. But at that age most actresses have more in their lives to celebrate then the fact that people think they have a great body. I wonder if that is what she wanted her legacy to be.. I strongly doubt it.. But her fans seem to think this is news for great celebration.. Ok.. I don’t get it. Tomorrow, next wee, next month, next year.. it will be someone new.

    That “most desired female figure” can’t seem to help her get or keep a man, can it?

    Don’t think Brad is missing it. He saw it night after night for five years and still ran off with Angelina the first chance he got.

    It’s old for an actress. There are very, very few actresses in Hollywood with active careers after 40, unless they can play a wide variety of roles. Aniston is too old to be playing Rachel Greene any more, and she doesn’t know how to do anything else. Meryl Streep she ain’t.

I see Sharapova as another Jennifer Capriati – that shoulder injury is nearly 2 years old…and it’ll never quite be right enough for her to play competitive tennis at that level. Or so I keep hoping…

    No. Benjamin Button is out. So is Marely and Me though. Marely and Me doubled Brad’s “forest Gump Part Two”
    ****************************************************************************************

    Um, honey… before you go shooting off your yap to no purpose, you might want to check the stats first.

    As of 1/28/09 (today), CCOBB is #6 at the box office and the mutt movie is #17.

    Total gross for the mutt movie so far is $155 million. That is nowhere near “double” the total gross for CCOBB which is $135 million and counting. The kicker is that CCOBB is holding steady in the US and rising in the charts overseas, while the mutt movie is going down, down, down. It’s already been dropped from 1,000 theaters in the US. So look for CCOBB to pull even with the mutt movie over the next three or four weeks, if it doesn’t overtake it by then.

    Mayer makes ‘motivational’ Pitt dig
    Wednesday, January 28 2009, 15:12 GMT

    By David Balls, Entertainment Reporter

    Rex Features
    John Mayer has made a dig at Brad Pitt’s ‘motivational lectures’ in a new video blog.

    The musician poked fun at on-off girlfriend Jennifer Aniston’s ex-husband in spoof video Power Tape 9: Potentializing Your Dreams.

    “Your a man of strength, charisma, girth, honour, girth… and influence,” he told himself.

    ‘You know like that guy in the movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Brat, Benjamin Brat, the older you get, the younger you get and right before you die a little tiny man baby you’re gonna discover the ability to time travel into volcanoes.

    “I never saw the film, I’m just guestimating that that’s how it ends.”

    Mayer will reportedly propose to Aniston on her 40th birthday next month.

    Gisele Doesn’t Have Most Sought-After Body Anymore
    Gisele Bundchen’s body is nothing short of bangin’. However, the sexy supermodel didn’t quite earn the top spot on the 12th Annual “Famed Hottest Looks,” list compiled by Beverly Hills plastic surgeons and co-directors of The Beverly Hills Institute of Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery Richard W. Fleming, M.D. and Toby G. Mayer, M.D.

    According to the majority of surgery seekers, Jennifer Aniston has the most desired female figure, followed by Gisele Bundchen and Jessica Biel
    —————-
    LOL, it’s just that the american woman has low standards ! lol. notice it is the’majority of surgery seekers’…hence, females who probably are like Maniston : real chubby average looking women who have to work their a** off to look decent. !
    -
    Men, on the otherhand know the real deal : a bootey with a nasty face and soul doesn’t do the trick ! It’s like any hooker or p*rn star with a banging body out there !

    And it’s like Angie said.. awards aren’t everything to them. I mean, sure it’d be nice to win.. but if they don’t? Well, they can still go home together and be with their beautiful kids. I’m pretty sure that matters most to them.. not those awards.

    OFF TOPIC:

    On Obama’s stimulus package – I do have concerns. Read an article in IHT by David Brooks who argued that the stimulus package was not as well thought through as it should be. If his analysis is true, I hope the brains like Lawrence Sumners and Paul Volcker and Timothy Geithner and others will take them on board.

    -

    When I think of the path that Obama and his economic advisors are walking I think of a watershed path. The question is which side of the drop will be worse in the short to medium term and can the worst case be averted on time.

    -
    The way I see it, Obama and his team think that a stimulus package is required to prevent a situation of the great depression in the 1930s with unemployment reaching 25% of the work force occurrsing, not to mention the situation of 0 to negative growth of Japan in the last 18 years occurring in the US. If something is not done, confidence which has been falling will utterly collapse. If what occurred in Japan in the last 18 years happens in the US or if the US goes through 25% unemployment, I think social unrest will occur. Americans have a very different society to the Japanese. Once there is social unrest, it’s difficult to tell how things will end.

    -
    The problem is, the budget deficit is already large thanks to Bush’s 2 wars and tax cuts. The stimulus package will aggravate the budget deficit even further. The problems I wrote about a few months ago, inflation, rising interest rates, fears of default of the US paper, I don’t believe they have gone away.

    -
    For now, inflation is less of a worry then deflation however so that is a relief. But interest rates can still rise if trust in the US economy and trust in the US governments ability to repay its paper falls.

    -
    This is one reason why I’m really really glad that Paul Volcker is such an important member of Obama’s economic team. Here is a man who has lived through and TAMED inflation in the 1970s. If inflation rises due to this stimulus package, Paul Volcker will have experienced this before and economists have a lot of experience in bringing down inflation. But the second scenario, rising interest rates due to lack of confidence in the US paper, a re-rating of risk much as what has happened in Spain recently, I don’t know who knows how to deal with it.

    -
    But I really believe, they walk the narrow path. I think most educated people recognise the risk. I read paper put out by Obama’s economist on the stimulus package and know that they did raise the risks.

    -
    I’m sure I’m not risking hyperbole, when I say, the world hopes the Obama administration succeeds and stabilizes the US economy. I support his actions, not because he is Obama but because I think the risks of unemployment and social unrest are far worse right now than future inflation and possible rising interest rates due to re-rating of risk of US paper.

    Never nothing about talent and career success. She is going to be 40. That is not old.
    ********************************************************************************************

    It’s old for an actress. There are very, very few actresses in Hollywood with active careers after 40, unless they can play a wide variety of roles. Aniston is too old to be playing Rachel Greene any more, and she doesn’t know how to do anything else. Meryl Streep she ain’t.
    ++++++++++++++++++
    Good point. I would go further to say that Meryl, while one of the most respected actresses in Hollywood is not and has never been a “conventional” beauty. She has had 4 kids and been willing to take risks. Angie has the same mindset. Not afraid to stretch herself as an actress or take risks. She was in some real stinkers (She-Devil with Roseanne Barr) but she keeps on working because she has great talent. Seriously can you see Maniston in “The Devil wears Prada”?!?!
    But you could see Angie playing that role in 20 years.

    Alot of the women in Hollywood that have had enduring careers are not conventional in appearance. Bette Davis, Katherine Hepburn, Shirly Maclaine. They are women who have the ability to play a variety of roles.

    Every movie Maniston has is simply recycled Rachel Green.

    Angelina is a mother now, with a committment to her family. She doesn’t need to prove anything. she has what she wants. She has meaning and purpose in her life.

    Maniston sits on her couch with Norman and reads headlines and blogs about how “hot” she is, or makes planes with Huvane as to how to get on the tabs.

    Those ridiculous stories about how the “tabloids won’t keep me from falling in love” or, “I would be a good relationship counselor” ewwww.

    MOVIE REVIEW: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (12A)
    Will David Fincher’s modern fable earn Brad Pitt that ellusive Oscar?…
    image

    Thursday 29th Jan 2009
    MOVIE REVIEW: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (12A) …m

    It’s a conundrum that has even the biggest movie fans stumped. Few have contributed more to the profile of Hollywood than it’s favourite A-List son, Brad Pitt. However, the senior half of Brangelina has never received the ultimate industry recognition – the Oscar. Nominated once (for ’95′s 12 Monkeys, trivia fans), and oh-so-close with last year’s nomination for The Assassination of Jesse James…, will his latest epic (itself nominated 13 times for this year’s awards) do the trick?

    David Fincher disappointed many with the so-so Zodiac, so it will come as great news that this film (his third with Pitt) is an instant classic. The scope of the film demands a unique style of filmmaking, and Fincher has just that. The dark, murky feel of films like Panic Room and Fight Club is present here, but twisted in such a way as to make the smallest things beautiful. Indeed, early comparisons to Forest Gump are a little unfair, as while the protagonist is an innocent, the beauty of the story is much more in marvelling at the little moments life offers us through the eyes of someone like Button, a person eager to be a part of a world that can never accept him. A fantastic script, believable effects and gorgeous visuals make for a modern fairy tale, a fable about the fragility of life.

    There are many strong performances – Ormond provides the perfect point of view for the audience, Swinton is her usual spiky self, and Henson is wonderfully maternal as the only normal family Benjamin could ever have. But it’s the two central performances that take your breath away. Blanchett is, as ever, near perfect as Daisy, who in her own way is an outcast and finds herself in just as difficult a predicament as her lover when the two ‘meet in the middle’ age-wise. The biggest applause, however, must go to Pitt. ‘Career-defining’ may be a difficult term to use, given his performances in the past, but his endearing child-like love of the world makes you love his character and really go along with him through all the ups and downs.

    A heart-breaking ending caps off a brilliant, fantastic film, more than worthy of all the nominations bestowed on it and akin to sweeping epics such as The English Patient. It may have a fight on its hands given the competition, but awards or no awards, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is superb.

    The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is out February 6.

    Thank you for all pictures from Japan premiere!! She is so beautiful!! Everybody loves Angie, just look how Frieda Pinto talks about her!! She is so beautiful!! I liked a lot this black dress and I loved this dress from SAG awards, very beautiful, she is wearing it better than model!! I can’t believe how Jen fans are desperate, Angie and Brad are nominated for every single award this year, and they are making fun because they didn’t won?!? Please, they are nominated for Oscar, and all those awards – this is HUGE honor!! I guess that Jen fans also make fun out of Peter O’Toole? Peter was nominated 8 times for Oscar and still didn’t won!! Or maybe Jen fans also make fun out of Paul Newman, he won his first Oscar in 1987 when he was 62!! Jen fans are really the worst fans in the world, making fun out of this amazing movies, Changeling is simply great movie, and Benjamin Button also!!

    Angie is a classy lady. Gown is worn best the way Angie wore it. Simple and elegant.

    Runway has a lot of pieces of cloth just hanging out, too busy with nonsense which distracts the beauty of the one wearing it. Looks cheap.

    For me a tatoo is a sign of non-conformity, a sign of extreme boldness, and not giving a thought to what others has to say about her.

    Go Angie.

    Angie wore this better than the model because Angie’s face alone is a classic. I still wish she wore her hair down though.

    Angelina.
    1. She has a much prettier face than the model (runway models tend to be a bit on the fugly side… sad but true).
    2. Her body is much better (again, runway models’ bodies tend to be on the human skeleton side, combined with their fugly/plain faces… to quote Vogue, today’s runway models are a group of walking zombies.
    3. The way she wore it is more subtle, with her front hidden (but still showing her chest) and her back showing.
    4. Angelina already has two Golden Globes and one Oscar in her early 20s.

    On the Jen Aniston and Angelina thing.
    Only on their acting careers (because everyone has their own subjective opinion on other things such as beauty and character).
    Angelina is way better recognized than Aniston. Aniston has one role in a sitcom. And she was the last woman of the cast to receive any award recognition for her role. I think even hardcore Friends fans would agree with me that Monica and Phoebe were acted much better than Rachel. Even then, Jen got her award AFTER she got together with Brad.
    Angelina had two consecutive Golden Globes and one Oscar before she was 30. In that regard she was doing even better than Brad Pitt. She had also shown ranged in her acting from action to goth to drama, from sex-symbols to crazy people to a detective to a mother and to a wife. The only thing she hasn’t tried is romantic comedy, which is not particularly respected in the industry anyway.
    Also, Jen can only do romantic comedies (the dramas she did, like “the Good Girl” are big failures, and she looked like George W. Bush in that movie, and was totally over shone by Jake Gyllenhaal.). Even in that industry, she is by no means the caliber of Cameron Diaz, Reese Witherspoon and Julia Roberts. The first one had been hugely successful, the latter two are well-recognized as excellent actresses in addition to their box-earning powers.
    Really, to be cruelly honest, Jen Aniston had Rachel Greene and Brad Pitt to support her career. Without constantly stirring out news regarding Brangelina, how is a washed out, middle-aged ex-sitcom star ever getting this much tabloid? Even as Rachel Greene, she was overshadowed by her co-stars. Her appeal then was she was “the pretty one” in a successful sitcom. What is her appeal now?

    Angelina is not the first to think of this Flip, many actresses have Flipped there dresses, glam shirts, even dress jackets. If you look back in the years of Award Shows and the Red Carpet you would see many that have made there mark with this fashion flip. As long as you can pull this strong risk off like Angelina has, more power to her. It looks great on her, and is Subtle and sexy that a classic Angelina look.

    Closet Case: Angelina Jolie’s no-nonsense style
    By Booth Moore
    .
    Angelina Jolie has to know how difficult it is to take her seriously with all the tabloid drama that follows her around. Which might have something to do with her no-nonsense style.
    .
    I can’t stop thinking about the blue Max Azria dress she wore to the SAG awards over the weekend. She’s worn Azria’s gowns to several big events, including Cannes and the VH1 Critic’s Choice Awards. Although certainly not inexpensive, his designs are accessible (Max Azria is the runway collection counterpart to BCBG), which seems right for right now. The ink-blue silk georgette SAG awards dress ships in March and will cost $798.
    .
    Jolie is one of the few celebrities who has developed a signature red carpet look — drapey, goddess-like dresses that show off her tattooed shoulders, natural hair, minimal makeup and jewelry. Some have criticized the look as dowdy, but I would call it self-aware. She’s using clothing to control her image. In a way, Jolie is telling us she’s transcended fashion and won’t be at the whims of whatever designer or jeweler happens to be the highest bidder. That alone sets her apart from the starlet pack, giving her integrity as an actress and mother, instead of just a mannequin.

    sooo I was really bored at work and came across this website.
    I think it looks really nice on angelina, she pulls off the back look very nicely. but for runway it looks nice on the model, the way I see it… it’s two dresses in one, what a buy!! lol

    Also I think people should realize that bodies come in all sjapes in sizes some are skinny some are curvy, why is it that big of a deal. she is a mature adult who gave birth to three children obviously this changes a persons body but motherhood becomes her.

    the model looks like she is wearing it backwards and she must be flat as a board because anyone with breasts would fall out of it. angelina looks great in it, nice color for her.
