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?

    the model obviously wore it better
    i like angie, but i thought she just looked nice in it
    the model pull it off and made it really nice =]

  • julie

    I agree with #10. If you think something live it don’t wear it like a billboard.

  • boogie

    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.

    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.
    ****************************************************************************************

    Jesus Christ, are all you Jenhags that stupid that you believe everything you read in some tabloid? You’ll wait for that tell-all book until you’re old and gray, honey. Just like you’ll wait for Fugly’s tell-all book that the tabs said she was writing two years ago. What happened, did the dumb b*tch come down with writer’s block?

  • Jill

    Actually, I’m not altogether crazy about that dress either forward or backward. But Brad left no doubt whatsoever how he thinks Angie looks in it, and that is all that matters.

    Who cares anymore if Brad and Angie slept together.That is old news.
    They are together with Children.What is going to happen to them if they did.That is four year old news.Aniston is gone from Brads life almost four years.If you love someone you care less if they are skinny
    or fat.

  • http://justjared Felinelilly

    The photoshopped picture of Knox in the previous thread is hysterical, LOL! :D

    TLOL, I don’t know what Brad is thinking in that picture but he looks so proud of Angie. He couldn’t smile any broader if he tried. :)

    I’m off, BBL

  • spicylily, thailand

    I’m always loves blue and happy to see Angie wore it on the RC.
    I love the way she wore it, ….more elegant and creative.

    The model has no boob and she was just sell the dress on the runway. Angie has a bigger boob and no need to sell the dress.

    Angie is Brad Pitt’s partner and a happy mother of 6 beautiful children.
    She doesn’t need to show off her curve, boob or anything.

    It looks better the way Angie wore it – gives the back interest, whereas when worn as intended, there’s just too much going on.

    Yes Angie… the way she does , whatever gown. wherever she goes . she’s the best for me.. and that’s proven already.

    Having a hard time believing this is the same dress. The one the model is wearing looks like bottom half has layers whereas Angelina’s dress doesn’t …. am i trippin? Anyway, with Angelina’s face she can’t go wrong so haterz … eat that! Oh, and she has Bradley. She wins in the best accessory category too. Daag.

    Wont it be interesting when all those greedy little paws finally get to open the tell-all book, hoping to feed their prurient lust with all things naughty about the JoliePitts but instead find themselves being described as enablers of jackals and hyenas. Haters and tabloids should be careful what they wish for; there is no guaranty the book you want is the book you’re going to get.

    So tell us how many awards Fugly was nominated for. Give us all some good laughs.

    Poor Fugly couldn’t even get herself invited to the awards ceremonies, let along get nominated for any awards.

    It must be awful being dumped so unceremoniously off the A-list and relegated to the ranks of the has-beens, don’t you think? Only poor Fugly isn’t even a has-been, she’s a never-was. The only reason she was ever on the A-list was being Mrs. Brad Pitt.

    You know what I want? I want to see Knox in a matching fedora like his daddy. Now that would be really cute. Looking at the pictures in the airport you can tell he is having a good time with the children. An olive green one like her worn on AI or someplace. Heheheheheh Peace

  • http://justjared.com EITHER WAY …

    The dress was to big & baggy for AJ’s slender/short frame. The model shown has the height to pull it off … even though it doesn’t look that good on the model either.

    I’m just saying

    Just watched on E! ….. according to designer, Angelina did not wear the dress backwards. It was designed to be worn both ways. Angelina opted for the conservative look versus the here’s my boobies look.

    I bet Huvaine/maniston put Mickey up to this bs (if true), always trying to down the JP. Really sad four years later. I bet them going to all these awards shows has really pi**ed Maniston off big time for Huvaine to do this. I’ll love them even more regardless because they are meant to be together. Here maniston is on her sixth fling and can’t get it together so she’s targeting Brad and Angelina being spiteful. She wants Brad to be as miserable as she is. Not going to happen.

    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.
    .

    Domestic Total as of Jan. 27, 2009: $119,957,884
    Release Date: November 26, 2008
    Running Time: 1 hrs. 22 min.
    Production Budget: $80 million
    .
    TOTAL LIFETIME GROSSES
    Domestic: $119,957,884 – 74.1%
    + Foreign: $42,030,713 – 25.9%
    = Worldwide: $161,988,597

    Now…CCOBB’s numbers. CCOBB has only opened in 13 of the 50+ countries it’s being released in…

    Domestic Total as of Jan. 27, 2009: $112,069,307

    Hello to Faye88 ,MF Char,and Estelle.

  • passing Through

    Oops – one last thing. I forgot to add that at its widest release Four Christmases was in 3,540 theaters while CCOBB was in 2988 theaters. So that 552 more theaters…each playing the movie 12 or 13 times a day for probably the first 2 weeks it was out. Plus, FC has been out 30 days longer than CCOBB Go forth trolls and do basic math.

    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.

  • val

    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????
