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?

    #44 Hi anoble I loved that picture you just posted.Wow look at Brad’s face.This is just a gorgeous moment of these two.

  • gloria

    She looks like a skeleton with a wig on its head and someone left the labels on it! She looks awful! Some of you people would worship anything!

  • http://justjared Felinelilly

    I like the exposed back look better than the plunging neckline look on the model so I’m going with Angelina on this one.

    Angelina need cover her back.

  • Queen

    none of those two….
    angelina is soooooo thin… why does nobody ever mention that?
    she is a skeleton.. damn only her face is beautiful..
    she only had boobs when she was pregnant.. now everything is gone..
    you dont even see her belly anymore because it’s obvious that it’s not pretty anymore..

    she doesnt need the attention thats right.. but she knows she doesnt have the boobs to wear it like that.. it’s very stupid

    Hey Vic, I love that picture – definitely a one that falls in the “a picture is worth a thousand words” category.

    We are butt-deep in snow again – took me almost 1 1/2 hours this morning to make the 1/2 drive home. Got the T-boy behind a shovel and he is mumbling something about snowblowers. :lol: :lol:

    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…

    That’s funny casue the dog movie fell off the top 10 at the box office and brad’s movie is still in the top 10.

    Angie wore it best! Very sexy and demure.

  • St. Angie

    How can anyone look at Angie in that dress and say she wore it well? As for changing it from back to front…what? There weren’t dozens of designers sending her dresses? She turned an edgy dress into my grandmother’s old dressing gown, and for the third time in a row looked awful.

  • LuckyL

    She looks fine, but I’m so weary of these kinds of threads.

    Did you see the tmz video of John Mayer trying to poke fun at Brad Pitt.
    He is a childish idiot. What’s up with him and Jen . If she is taking pointers from that idiot she is on her way down. JM isn’t even in Brad’s zone of class. He is a dirty drug using fool. Aniston looks like she is on the same shite he is on. She needs to keep her mouth shut period. Both of them.

    Sorry to say, and I’m a big Angie fan, but i’m gonna call it like I see it. I like the runway look better. The look on Angie makes her look older. The back of the dress looks to pinned up and unfinished. And i’m not a big fan of those tatts.

    I just love that look on his face – it says it all! LOL about T-boy – told him to put all those weight-lifting muscles to good use. Everything pretty much came to a stand still here for a while – we got snow, then freezing rain, then snow again. Old man Winter needs to LEAVE right now! I bet the grands were doing a happy dance. :)

    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!

    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

    BBL and waving to feline, anoble, vicki, soopx, senior and to all the fans!

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

    I can understand her wearing ithis dress backwards…I sometimes style models with their clothes on backwards…the backwards look is not original, but neat.

    my god! nice video anoble! i’ve never seen angelina’s mother, but looking at these pics she looks exactly like her!! i always wondered how john voight fathered her as they look nothing alike!

    there u have it Angelina didnt have to get her lips done just look at her mothers! her mums beautiful! dare i say even prettier then angelina!

    the vid is also sort of creepy, its cringe worthy when people do videos of celebs then add music.

    the skinny model is better for a change

  • A And B Fan

    Angie looks better. She looks elegant and classy which has been her fashion statement for a long time.
