Style icon! After more than two decades in show business, Angelina Jolie has made a name for herself as an actor, producer, humanitarian and, of course, a red carpet chameleon.
Whether the Academy Award-winner is rocking a menswear-inspired tux, a full-length ball gown or showing some leg (as she most infamously did at the 2012 Oscars), Angie keeps things simple, sexy and never fails to bring her signature edge to the red carpet.
Her hair and makeup are always utterly glam too. She is the queen of the bouncy blowout — often sporting bombshell curls and sophisticated updos, while her go-to crimson pout is always on point.
Her early red carpet days are marked by Elvira-inspired goth looks, including the black long-sleeved Versace gown she wore to the 2000 Academy Awards.
The Salt actress famously made a style statement the following year, wearing then-husband Billy Bob Thornton’s blood in a vial around her neck for the Original Sin premiere.
In the coming years, Jolie played with color, wearing a canary yellow St. John gown to the Ocean’s Thirteen premiere in 2007, a flowing green Max Azria Atelier number at the Cannes Film Festival in 2008 and a sequin emerald dress by Atelier Versace at the 2011 Golden Globes.
But 2012 is the year she formally stepped into her role as a style icon. The star made the entrance of all entrances at the Oscars, rocking a black strapless Versace gown. And Jolie, who repeatedly popped her leg out, made sure nobody missed that thigh-high slit!
She went through a champagne phase in 2014 and 2015, wearing a sparkly Elie Saab number to Academy Awards and a beaded column dress to the AFI Festival.
Jolie also stunned in a silky silver Jenny Packham gown at the 2017 Oscars, but, for the most part, the star sticks to black — and she works it!
In 2019, she wore a strapless sequin Versace dress to the European premiere of Maleficent: Mistress of Evil in Italy. But, when the actress walked the red carpet later that month in London, she actually went with white.
Jolie stunned a white Ralph & Russo number, which featured gold piping around the bustier and metallic embellishments along the cape.
As we eagerly await Jolie’s next red carpet appearance, let’s take a look back at some of her best red carpet style moments over the years. Keep scrolling to see our favorite looks of all time!
