Angelina Jolie's Stylist Dishes on Her Post-Baby Style

Angelina Jolie may have her hands full caring for her newborn twins and four other children, but she still finds time for another passion — fashion! Jen Rade, Jolie’s longtime stylist, told PEOPLE at W‘s New York Affair this week that despite Angie’s large brood, it’s not hard to get the mother-of-six on the phone to discuss her sartorial options. “No, [it’s not tough], but she’s definitely got a lot going on. Any time you talk to her there’s a lot of kids in the background, that’s for sure.” Rade is working with Jolie to dress her for the Changeling junket later this month, as well as the film’s premiere October 4th. “It’ll be her first big US appearance since having the babies,” Rade says. “I feel some pressure, but I think I can do it. We’ve been doing it for five years together.” Is it a challenge finding clothes that work for Jolie’s post-pregnancy body? “Not really. She’s breastfeeding so the boobs are bigger, but no. It’s going to be fun. I’m looking forward to it.” Rade describes Jolie’s style as “kind of classic with a rock and roll edge” and says she loves working with Angelina because “she’s funny and smart.” Plus, she’s a fab mom: “She loves it — or else she wouldn’t do it.” — Reporting by Kathy Ehrich Dowd.

I have alot of respect and admiration for Angelina. She has enough money that she does’nt need to do anything, but instead she chooses to become an ambassador, build schools in poor nations, and provide health care for the underpriviledged. I don’t see many stars that go above and beyond to really make a difference in this messed up world. May God continue blessing the Pitt-Jolie family

Someone in that household menagerie is suffering from lonliness, you can’t put that many kids in a room with only two parents and not expect at least one of them, possibly more to feel left out and feel neglected. I think Angelina and Brad feel guilt for breaking up Brad’s marriage to Jennifer and they’re trying to suffocate that guilt (because it’s clear they’re only putting more kids between them to cushion their pain and put the distance between them that should have been there during the filming of Mr and Mrs Smith)by filling their house with as much noise and distraction as they can.
I know that if I found myself in a relationship with someone who was as attractive and hot as they are, the last thing I’d want to do in the beginning stages of our relationship is to fill it full of kids, I’d want all their time to myself and yeah, Angelina already had Maddox, that’s cool…but at least Brad didn’t have to wait in line all day to see his gf….nope they just started adopting and popping babies out pretty much the day they got together….it’s just bizarre.

If you spent most of your teen life and young adult life being addicted to drugs and other destructive behaviour, doesn’t it make sense that you can be addicted to other things that wreck your body? like childbirth? She does have an addictive disorder….she talked about it all the time when she was with Billy Bob Thornton. Kids are her new drug of choice…. yipes. This is not going to end well……

Angelina is a GREAT mom and I wish her nothing but the best. She will look stunning in whatever she wears.

Jennifer Aniston is looking so fine these days, I doubt if she cares about Brad or Angelina one bit. You truly do reap what you sow in this life.

I expected nothing less of Angie than her and her kids happy to be around each other. I wonder what it’s like being raised by a goddess? Haters, your comments were getting old and stale a year ago. Time to move on or get some new material.
