Love her or hate her, Angelina Jolie is infamous for breaking the rules.
Far from fitting into the Hollywood mould, she chooses to play unique strong characters much like herself, in movies like Girl Interrupted and Mr and Mrs Smith. She further separates herself from the Hollywood pack with her distinctive tattoos, risqué love life and work as a Good Will Ambassador for the United Nations. Despite these differences Angelina is still renowned as one of the hottest woman on the planet.
Simply Looking Good
When Angelina walks the red carpet she is a vision of glamour. Taking influence from the 1940s silhouette, Angelina wears long and lean outfits that show off her feminine curves. Tactile fabrics like silk, satin and leather are used to create smouldering sex appeal that puts her on Hollywood’s best dressed lists. The mother of two, however, has a more practical side too. Angelina’s off work style is as smouldering and sexy as her on screen personas but is compiled with practicality in mind. A casual base of well cut denim, pants and sexy fitted tops are spiced up with ethnic details such as belts, earrings and necklaces.
Angelina, whose skin is usually a beautiful golden bronze, is often seen in shades of caramel and gold to accent her skin and dark features. We love the pictured tie waist camisole from Ezibuy label Urban . This basic long line camisole would look perfect with your favourite well cut denim, a pair of relaxed sandals and luxe ethnic jewellery for an Angelina inspired look.
In the Details
Any fashion follower will tell you that accessories maketh the look. This is obviously something Angelina ascribes to, whether it be a pair of gorgeous gold earrings, a simple chain necklace against a silk black gown or a killer pair of heels. This idea carries through to her day-to-day life. She is often spotted wearing relaxed resort-wear inspired hats, carrying over-sized safari inspired canvas carry alls, or my favourite, wearing a range of individual belts that spice up even the most plain pair of jeans.
When looking for accessories, look at the details such as buckles, buttons or gold, silver and shell detailing. Angelina maintains a natural look during the day and keeps the simple slinky shiny look for the red carpet. We love the pictured matte gold and brown suede plait belt from Dotti. This would look great with a pair of jeans or over one of this season’s silk summer dresses to add a bit of spice.
Bare Faced Vamp
Gracing the cover of magazines like Vogue and Instyle, Angelina’s modelling background has served her well. She is listed among Hollywood’s best for her style, beauty and sexiness, with a look that is easy to achieve at home.
