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.

Hater’s, Hater’s, Hater’s…. She’s bad & all ya’ll know it. She’s beautiful, Brad’s beautiful, & their kid’s are beautiful. She’s done nothing to any of you?? Let’s all face it, Jennifer Aniston isn’t even in the same league as Angie.
Jen was waaay to busy (trying) to be a movie star to give Brad the family he wanted. Angelina’s capable of doing it ALL.. She’s everything he wanted. Oh yea, & she’s got an Oscar..& above all, she’s a wonderful mother.

AOP on

the karma you talk about in here certainly caught up with Aniston and Dern. They both cheated. Aniston dropped Tate Donovan like a hot potato for Brad Pitt. Dern broke up TWO marriages: BBT and Harpers…

I doubt it will touch Jolie as she did not break apart any home.

to all those people that are calling her way too skinny, heres something you probably never hear and need to:

a.) if you’re calling her way too skinny, you’re all probably a bunch of fat “lardos”- as in fat little piggies…and is it just me, or what? but i haven’t seen any cellulitey,dimply, obese ladies walkin’ the runways lately, have you?
—> i’m really sick and tired of people picking on thin skinny people. get over it!! yes, we’re tiny!! get over it!! some of us are just naturally that way! we’re not all anorexic or bulimic! mind your own damn business!!

b.) do you really care about her well being when you say shes too skinny? probably not. are you just dying to reach out to her and tell her to get some help? probably not.
—> as the saying goes “if you don’t have anything nice, don’t say anything!”

you guys are ridiculous…

what if we were to all bash the fatties? and on every single message board say “Hey look! what a fattie!! SOMEONE needs to go on a diet!”…do we do this? NO!!! b/c we, unlike most of you, are secure & smart enought to know that everyone comes in different shapes and sizes, and shouldn’t be judged because of this!! judgement should come because of merit and one’s character, not if they’re a size 2 or 22!
so excuse me when i get really ticked

some girl on

Right on xyz, she is not too skinny, she looks very healthy to me. While I will admit Jolie looks beautiful at Cannes, I feel her fashion choices lately are really ‘safe’, sort of boring. I like her edgier, unique fashion choices in the past. Also I think SMILING is the best fashion choice you can make, everyone looks better when they smile.

Julie on

Actually, fat people are regularly mocked. Even on this message board, it’s a big deal when someone gains a bit of weight. Girls who are considered a healthy weight are often called overweight.

I feel for your plight, xyz, because I think it’s important to embrace ALL body types — bigger and skinnier — but I’m not buying this “we have it so much harder than fat girls” crap. Yeah right.

AnnieM on

xyz – well said! I totally agree.

Nicky on

Summer i so agree with you. In my personal opinion and i am woman. I am tired of us constantly blaming the other woman. “she stole Brad”. Like Brad don’t have a brain of his own. Its so High school. Sometimes when we get married we do it with the best intentions and sometimes it works and sometimes it don’t. That is life. As women we need to stop putting blame on the person that our men fell in love with and look at our own selves and see what we can do so it never happen again.

Angie always dresses classic and elegant. Yes she looks thin. She has also been through alot this year including loosing her mother. So forgive her. So silly. She is beautiful and she never wears anything to short or reveling to draw attention to her. She is a class act and Brad is lucky to have her as a Wife. Legal or Not.

someone can tell me to my face that i am anorexic/bulimic, need to gain weight, and need to see a doctor….tell me…whats the difference between doing that and me telling someone that they are fat….a whole lot…if i said that i can guarantee you i wouldn’t have very many friends…i’ve gotten told the above no less than a million times…and still- no one seems to think its that bad…

Ingrid on

Right on, xyz! Why do you think all the skinny girls are struttin’ it on the runways? We’re hotter! GO SVELTE GIRLS!

Ingrid on

Right on, xyz! Skinny girls are hotter. That’s why we rock the runways. I’m sick of everyone saying that the heavy women are mistreated when it’s hard for me to find clothes that fit me. Why should fat people be rewarded for letting themselves go? Slim people take better care of themselves. We should be rewarded with designer clothes. Cause lemme tell ya, it sucks to walk into a store, see a cute blouse and then find they don’t make it in any sizes under two. GO SVELTE GIRLS!
