Angelina Jolie is a true style icon. She’s come a long way from a short-haired, leather jacket wearing girl to an elegant, gown-donning mother of 6. And every time, the actress looks stunning no matter what she’s wearing. Even if it’s a leopard print coat.
Young Angelina was a true impersonation of rebellion. Just look at her short brown hair. The actress had this hair for a role in Hackers, but it’s also obvious that the hairstyle represented how she felt at the time. The movie was released in 1995 and this photo was taken in 1997.
At the end of the 1990s, Angelina decided to experiment with more feminine-looking styles. First, she dyed her hair red and had Marilyn Monroe-style hair. Her hair really highlights her cheekbones and her chin.
In 2000, Jolie returned to the image of the bad girl. This was also because she got married to Billy Bob Thornton, who is 20 years older than her. At their wedding, she was wearing jeans and a T-shirt and so was he. She dyed her hair dark and started wearing leather again.
At the Oscar ceremony in 2000, Angelina had long dark hair and wore a long black dress — she looked a lot like Morticia Addams. By the way, this was one of the most popular dresses of the gothic 2000s.
But Angelina hasn’t completely forgotten about her rebellious times. Short tops, low-rise pants, and long nails were a hit of the 2000s. This is not a look for everyone, but Jolie is an exception. Maybe it’s because she keeps things simple: she doesn’t have too many accessories. Or maybe it’s because she drew inspiration from her character Lara Croft.
In 2005, she starts to wear more delicate outfits. And this is around the same time that she and Brad Pitt start their relationship after Mr. & Mrs. Smith. Do you believe in coincidences?
Back at the beginning of the 2000s, during the shooting of Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, Angelina went to Cambodia and she was horrified by how poor the country was. She started her charity activities there, she became a Goodwill ambassador, and in 2005, she was invited to the World Economic Forum in Davos.
Even when she was pregnant, Jolie was traveling around the world trying to help people from different countries. And this is when her clothes became more business-like. She couldn’t talk to very powerful and serious people and still wear leather pants, right?
She clearly prefers a total look, especially when it comes to wearing black. But sometimes, there are exceptions in her wardrobe, for example, a long blue dress or a cocktail dress with a yellow insert.
In your opinion, in what image does Jolie look the best: as a punk with short hair, a glamorous blonde, as the evil Maleficent, or as a mother of many children? Share your views in the comment section below!
