Get the Look: Angelina Jolie's Cannes Chic

05/23/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

If there is ever a moment for over-the-top glamour, it’s the Cannes Film Festival — so leave it to an understated Angelina Jolie to blow everyone out of the water. At the photocall for her new film Mighty Heart, she paired a belted satin Elie Tahari top with a simple black pencil skirt, peep-toe pumps and soft ringlets. At night for the film’s official Cannes premiere, Angelina turned up the drama in a vintage black lace Balmain sheath from Decades, set off by sexy peep-toe pumps and Francis Klein jewels. Just goes to show that less really can be more. . .

Get the look:
Snag Angelina’s Elie Tahari blouse for yourself at, $248, or try a style steal with this silk tunic from, $25. Pair the top with this simple black pencil skirt from, $35 and Aldo black pumps, $70.

it is amazing that when asked about what angie is wearing, people only want to comment on their opinions of her personal life. i do have mixed feelings about the woman, but mostly i am envious that i do not have her life. i think she looks beautiful at cannes. i love her simple and accessible approach to dressing.

I don’t think the word ‘classy’ is a stretch of the imagination when it comes to Angelina…I think in this photo, she is the epitome of classy…
..and I’m not sure why you think that just because Angelina is too thin–that she’s not classy…that doesn’t even make sense.?.
BTW…you would be thin too if you had recently lost your mother…

Simply stunning and so inspiring. I really admire Angie.

Yes, these posting are supposed to be about Angie’s appearance, but no we couldn’t resist to comment on her as a person. It goes with out saying, she looks absolutely flawless in those photos. Admittedly, she does come across older than 31, but its not because she’s aged. She just has a particular aura that conveys wisdom and authority. As for her and Brad, we do have no idea what happened. Who is to say he did not pursue her? Why must we place so much blame on the woman? I suspect the people who do so are those who are insecure in their own relationships. If your relationship is good and true, then no other person should be able to break it apart. Its simple.

I hear ya! I couldn’t agree with you more, that little word KARMA packs a big punch. What you do in life always comes back on you and only you.
Congrats on your 12 years and wish you many more!

Love her look, but my goodness she’s so so so so very skinny!!!

I think in the past few years Angelina has evolved into one of the best dressed people in Hollywood. She always pulls out timeless classic looks that everyone has to approve of. She is absolutely stunning and she always lets that show. Well done Angelina on your amazing style and your persistent stunning beauty.

[Yawn] Yes, she looks pretty, but also pretty boring. “Aura that conveys wisdom and authority”, or is it actually snobbery? I don’t get why she and Brad can’t manage to smile for the cameras much. They usually look so serious- is it fatigue from having 4 kids at home, or just that they’re too cool to smile?

Also, Angie was stick-thin long before her mom passed away. She’s probably just way to busy to eat with her large family, working on a movie, humanitarian work, etc. That’s probably also why she looks about 10 years older than she is.

I think Angie looks fantastic, simple and sophisticated. People who constantly complain about her weight don’t understand that sometimes when people go through tragic events they often get after effects like weight loss. I’ve seen many of my friends go through hard times and drop weight not because they’re starving themselves but grief takes its toll on you. Concentrate on her style not constantly analyzing her body fat. Oh and I agree with people who say not to always blame the woman. Men should take just as much blame if not more.

She’s the most beautiful woman on this planet
