Known for her acting as well as her longtime relationship with fiance Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie's film career includes a variety of performances such as her Academy Award-winning role in "Girl, Interrupted," "Mr. and Mrs. Smith," the "Lara Croft" series and "Taking Lives." Aside from acting, Jolie is a dedicated humanitarian with her work as a United Nations Refugee Agency Goodwill Ambassador. In her personal life, she and Pitt are parents to six children. Emulate her sophisticated fashion sense by following her style standards.
Black clothing is the staple of Jolie's wardrobe. Whether she chooses a formal gown or separates, Jolie regularly wears all-black ensembles. Capture this monochromatic style by pairing classic pieces together. For example, wear straight-legged ankle pants with a fitted black cardigan and top with a black trenchcoat. While Jolie often keeps her accessories at a minimum, you can incorporate her black aviator sunglasses and diamond solitaire earrings. In keeping with Jolie's style, add a touch of another neutral color with your shoes. While black is typically her go-to color, the actress regularly wears nude ballet flats or pumps with her ensembles.
Continuing with Jolie's affinity for black, leather is a key fabric in her wardrobe. From the plunging V-neck leather dress she wore to the "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" premiere, Jolie has continued to infuse leather into her red carpet choices. Mimic Jolie's edgier fashion choices by choosing important events to debut your look. Pair a strapless leather cocktail dress with stilettos and bold red lipstick to bring a fashionable but daring look to an evening event.
Red Lip Color
With black as her primary color, Jolie tends to dress up the neutral shade for formal occasions with a bold red lip. Align your style with Jolie's by keeping your makeup classic to allow for a bold red statement lip color. For example, use a mineral blush to add glow to your cheeks rather than a colored blush that would look overwhelming with a bright lip. While eye makeup can include liner and mascara, as Jolie wore at the 2012 Academy Awards, keep to neutral eye shadow colors and avoid the heavy smokey-eye trend. Prep your pucker to hold color by brushing lips with a dry toothbrush to remove dead skin. Outline your lips with lip liner before applying your statement color. Top with a clear lip balm for added shine.
With enviable brunette tresses, Jolie's long barrel-curled locks are an iconic part of her look. Long, healthy hair is de rigueur to emulate her look. While she sometimes wears her hair in an updo for a formal event or straight and pulled back for casual outings, audiences and fans are used to seeing her hair in a deep side part cascading over her shoulders. From her chin down, her long hair is barrel curled leaving beautiful bouncy curls to move with her as she walks down a red carpet. With plenty of volume and body, Jolie's hair adds a final touch of sophistication to her style.
