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?

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

    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 Says:

    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.

    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

    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.

    You have totally lost it. You are going to choke to death on your own excrement in a mental ward while pulling all your fingernails out.

    Heather Says:

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

    chopin Says:

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

  14. 114 Says:

    Still should have worn it normally. Looks so plain and it looks so dull with all that fabric

    Her last few award show dresses have ben boring!! She needs a new stylists. She has now been on top of anyone fashion list for a long time. I guess she still has the Oscars.

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

    peanunt Says:

    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.

    Maybe Angie just wanted to dress comfortably. If I had to sit through a boring awards show for two hours, I’d want to be comfortable too, wouldn’t you?

    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.

    You know what you fans you can cuss at me, call me pathetic, and just say nasty thing s to me all you wnat but man, it’s going to be hilarious when Brad and Angie go empty handed at the Oscar, AGAIN!
