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 am in no way a lesbian and I think Angie is hot, I think those who criticize her are just in a rut because Angie would not dare look at their pig a$$e$!
    To those who dislike Angie….or so you want to believe…
    Admission is the first road to recovery, come on admit that you secretly fantasize about her and then maybe you can begin to battle your Angie Addiction..

    Fans lets start a group for the trolls..AJA Anonymous (Angelina Jolie Anonymous)!

    I dont think she is pregnant I think she has pregnancy fat. Because she is so slim, hjer skin stretched a lot to accomodate the twin pregnancy. But I do think she will get pregnant in the near future so she did not do ay surgery to remove the fat.
    She is going to film Salt which is supposed to have lots of stunts…unless shewill use a double…..

    Angie of course!!! its a similar dress but its not the same Angies dress has a train in the back- if that was the same, the front of the original dress would be longer.

    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.’”

    Jessica Says:

    ANGELINA!! ANGELINA DEFINITELY wore it better! She is very pretty and the exposure of the back makes it 100 times more sexy than the plunging neckline. The dress color and hair suits Angie very well..she looks stunning. The runway model…not so much.

    Oh this is too funny. Sounds like the time she made People rag mag put out the statement that it was the designers fault with a bad place of zipper the time she wore the ripped leather pants….excuse me…bwahahahahaha…and the gum on her shoe to the red carpet.

    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.

    Backwards or forwards, she was the biggest YAWN on the red carpet that night.LOLOL

    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. They could not take their eyes off Brad or Angie..

    Love it…
