Get the Look: Angelina's Luxe Accessories

We love the simplicity of Angelina Jolie‘s style — from her pencil skirts to her trench coats, she is the epitome of quiet elegance. So when she stepped out today with her family in Manhattan, our eyes went right to her stylish accessories (Sorry, Zahara!). We’ve spotted her Valentino braided leather shoulder bag on stars like Claire Danes and Jennifer Garner before, but we still love it. And forget trendy white or red sunglasses — Angelina opts for classic oversized Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses to cover her famous eyes. The ultimate accessory is, of course, her beautiful family — Brad Pitt is just out of the frame on Angelina’s left!

Get Angelina’s purse for $1695 at bergdorfgoodman.com, or get the look for less with this Mae & J bag, $55 at fashionflairs.com. Love her sunglasses? Get her Dolce & Gabbana shades for $214 at unitedshades.com, or get the look for less with these “Twiggy” glasses, $13 at 80spurple.com.

She looks great as always. If she wants to spend $1800 on a purse that’s her perrogative and who’s to say that she didnt get those items for free.

Why would anyone be complaining about the cost of her purse anyway? This is a woman that gives her time and money to charities around the world and people still are jealous of her. Too bad that most people are missing the big picture here…and it’s not about her weight or how much she spent on a purse…geez.

Give it up, Nat. This is the 2nd time I’ve seen you complain about Angelina. Just because she wants to help others does not mean that she should be forced to give up her lifestyle. This isn’t a socialist system, you know. Socialism runs counter to human nature and never works in practice.

I donate money to my church, alma mater, the arts, etc, but buy and wear $500 shoes. Does this make me a hypocrite too? The fact that Angelina devotes her spare time to charitable causes speaks highly of her. How many other celebrities that are doing the same? Not very many.

Sheesh. You are completely missing the picture.

I agree with Mary 100%. Angie has great style as well.

Anna on

ah that much for a purse?!?

rachel on

shes a mother of 4 KIDS!! and a celebrity who gets followed everywhere by cameras!! and an actress!! i mean her day is full of things she has to do…so it makes sense that shes a little skinny from runnning all over the place! stop judging.

Angelina puts her money where her mouth is with regard to her charitable contributions and volunteer efforts. Unlike many Hollywood celebs who spend a great deal of time TALKING about helping people and donating money, she actually DOES it. As a conservative, I also appreciate the fact that she chooses to help people, not in an effort to persuade or dissuade political idealogies, but rather in an effort to draw legitimate attention to pertinent subjects concerning humanitarian issues/crises. I applaud Miss Jolie for her hard work and her non-partisan approach to altruism. In the end, her legacy will not be her handbags, her lovers, or her movies; Miss Jolie’s legacy will be her humanitarian and charitable works.

great accessories but i agree-who has that kind of money to spend on bags and sunglasses?

Marcie on

I think everyone should quit judging her. So what if she has an airplane, an expensive purse, expensive sunglasses. That should be of no ones business except for her and her family. I think she is a fantastic person. Just let the Jolie-Pitts live their life the way thay want to.

raaaw on

she should give her money to food

The issue is not whether the bag is cute or whether the sunglasses are cute. The issue is not that Angie gets paid over 10 million per movie. The issue is not that her net worth is probably over 100 million or that she donates a third of her income. This issue is this….it is a purse and a pair of sunglasses. One must ask themselves, where do you draw the line in spending money on such items. Sure most women own a pair of sunglasses or a purse, but how much should really be spent on such things. Because they are in a very real sense, just things. They are not people and they only serve to perform one function. A purse carries a woman’s belongings and sunglasses protect your eyes. Whether an individual has 100 million to their name or 100 dollars to their name, it shouldn’t make a difference. Practically 2000 for a purse is ridiculous no matter who you are or what you are worth. I feel guilty spending more than $30 on a purse, because I know that it is a meaningless object. And if there are any people reading this that think I am crazy for believing that a purse is a meaningless object, then you need to re-evaluate your life, what is important, what you believe, and what purpose your life serves. Because if all that your life amounts to is wearing some cool accessories and keeping up with the latest fashion, then your life is pretty empty.

I am not talking about Angelina completely here, but at least partially. Overall, in regards to her, I think the purse is ugly and not worth the quoted price. I think the humanitarian work that she does is great. However, we have to remember that standards for right and wrong do not come from comparing her to other moviestars. I believe that no one should ever spend that amount on a purse, in fact, no purse should even cost that amount. It doesn’t matter if you donate all your money to charity, if you are worth multi-millions, or if you are the most beautiful woman on the plant. Nothing justifies such horrific and unnecessary spending, when so many people in our world do not even have food or clothing.
