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.

Angelina is so dishonest.

And they suffered at the Border Line Syndrome.

She has a unique style.

Lillianne on

I’m ready for a big dose of J-P kid pix, all of them.

markus on

Hollywood Missed Angelina Jolie. We want to see her movie “Changeling”. I hope she win the best actress.

Debbie on

Please stop writing about Angelina Jolie. She is a homewrecker and a phony. I don’t know why people are so interested in her… it’s truly sad. They continue having and adopting kids, when no one is going to be able to keep control of them. Absolutely shameful!

melissa on

Who the eff cares?? Im sick of all of them

Rebecca on

Was this all PEOPLE could find to write about? Seriously, I just wasted 5 minutes to hear that Angelina has bigger boobs at the moment?

shakyla on

go girl your;awesome

mel on

i don´t like angelina one bit she stole jen´s husband and then she´s the one that doesn´t talk to her dad because he cheated on her mom!!!

way 2 go angie!!!

Lee on

Yeah Angie! that’s right enjoy your time out of the spot light and pinch those toes on the little ones. Remember, folks out here on the street have your back and support the love that you have found and created with big head Brad

sunny on

FINALLY! has she been in hiding all summer? I really do miss seeing her out and about.

sunny on

is this working?

jlf on

I agree with Sasha! Angelina is a wonderful person! A lot of people should use her as a role model!

sunny on

Mel and the other woman, why don’t you blame the real homewrecker AKA Brad PITT. he is the one who decided to chase Angelina Jolie and talk her into creating a family with him.

I am so tired of Angelina always getting the blame and the doofus Man getting off the hook.

He is not the last man on the face of the earth and he’s not even good looking anymore. so get over his ugly butt and leave Ange alone already.

Jonathan on

Whatever!

DIANNA STEEDLEY on

I ADMIRE ANGELINA FOR HER CLASS IN DEALING WITH THE MEDIA.EVERYTHING ABOUT HER AND BRAD TELLS ME THEY LOVE THEIR CHILDREN AND THEY ARE COMMITED TO ONE ANOTHER.ITS REFRESHING TO SEE PARENTS WHO ARE DEVOTED TO THEIR CHILDREN AND NOT THEMSELVES!

ariel on

I luv her style she always look so chic and classy def she a style icon.

Rinda on

I can not stand this woman. I think she is a nut case.

jdo on

Angelina and Brad, I wish all the happiness in the world, and for their wonderful children too. Angelina and Brad are an inspiration in how they love thier children and care for them so much. Its lovely to have witnessed that in the story and pictures Ive seen of this,thats what stands out to me, I dont see the pics very much,I dont follow the stars stories much, but what Ive seen, its obvious they love their babys. I like movies Ive seen this couple in , I saw them seperatly in a few movies over the years,they are obviously talented and what comes across to me,they have great depth and thus makes them such great actors, and I look forward to more movies with heart from both of them,because they obviously have alot of heart and depth,its obvious to see that, and best wishes to all of them. Gods blessings to them and theirs. Peace

roxie on

Jolie and Pitt are slugs.

Pitt looks like Sh^t!!!!

fiona on

Angelina is perfection!!!There is no “bad clothes happen to good people ” here.Everything she wears looks great and effortless on her.There is only another actress that I could say the same about, it is Thandie Newton…

maris on

Very talented and inspiring woman. I admire her for what she do.

mel on

hey it´s angelina who said she would never sleep with a married man and fell pregnant when he wasn´t even divorced yeahhh she´s the victim i´m sure !!
but i do agree that he isn´t any better maybe even worse!!

i just don´t like her one bit and never will

Faye on

Does anyone see the irony with these posters who say they can’t stand her, yet read an article about her?

I miss seeing Angie and can’t wait to see what she’ll be wearing. Looking forward to her red carpet appearance with Brad.

Thank you for the article.

sally on

even if she were bald she would be so beautiful. i could only wish i had hair like her. mine is staight will not hold a perm and white to boot.

Cindy on

Who is going to take care of all these kids when Brad and Angie split like all the other hollywood couples? I am sure thsat will be the next thing within 5 years!!!!

Joe Brady on

Home wrecker she will always be one no matter how much charity work or money she donates she is still a morally corrupt woman

myself on

I think she’s a brilliant actress and she has done good charity work, but to me she will always be a lousy husband stealer/homewrecker and I have no respect for her at all.

sally on

for peet sakes debbie get a life and leave others alone. thank god they are adopting and giving all these children love and a chance of life. would you like her to talk about you in this way? melissa you are just as bad. i think you both are just wishing you were her.

jennifer on

mel-if you dont like her or care about her why waste time posting on this(her) story?
anyway…i m dying to see her new image.
love her and wish her happiness

Cassandra on

She will look gorgeous in whatever they select for her to wear. I admire this beauty and her strength…not all that crazy about tatoos though but it’s not my body. I can hardly wait to see her. Peace Be With You!

southerngirl on

I LOVE HER!!!! SHE CAN DO NO WRONG IN MY BOOK. SHE ALWAYS LOOKS FAB.

mel on

i only agree with this statement”to me she will always be a lousy husband stealer/homewrecker and I have no respect for her at all”

and nobody said a homewrecker couldn´t look good in clothes ever seen the latin version of ugly betty?

Seriously on

For all of you who “wasted your time reading this article” or bashing Angelina…can you really say you’re better than her or anyone else for that matter? Please..as if you’re the saint of all man kind – NO ONE IS PERFECT and people make mistakes. We will NEVER know if Brad cheated on poor little Jen. So get over it…she is doing more for those children than most Americans are doing for their own families.
Best of luck to the Jolie-Pitt family!

Missy on

Angelina HOlie makes me ill. Why is everyone so enamoured of a homewrecking woman who thinks she’s all that when in reality she’s just an annoying person.

mel on

Missy couldn´t have said it better myself!

or maybe homewreckers are in ?

SASHA on

TO ALL THE HATERS ON THIS THREAD YOU LOONIFERS HAVE LOST YOUR MARBLES.
I ALWAY WONDER WHAT BORING LIVES YOU ALL LIVE TO ATTACK A WOMAN ON A CONSTANT BASIS FOR NO REASON EXCEPT SHOW BRAD WHAT REAL LOVE, COMMITMENT AND FAMILY IS ALL ABOUT.
YOUR PERSONAL LIVES MUST BE BORING FOR YOU TO KEEP ATTACKING A LOVING FAMILY AND RELATIONSHIP LIKE THERE.
BECAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR. SO FAR IT’S BEEN FOUR YEARS AND THEY’VE BEEN TOGETHER WHILE CHINNIFER MANISTON HAS GONE THRU SIX MEN.
WHAT WOULD YOU LOONIFERS SAY TO THAT WH*RE.
EVERYTIME YOU HATERS PRAY FOR BRAD AND ANGIE TO SPLIT UP. GOD ALMIGHT SHOWERS THEM WITH MORE BLESSING AND LOVE.

Mary on

Angelina Jolie is PERFECTION! I am sick of all these Jennifer hens who cannot get over a fake marriage, no one can break a happy home. Angelina was the only one that showed class when the fraud that is Jennifer got her friends to throw their muck.
I am tired of People magazine perpetrating this poor Jennifer shtick, it is old.

I am looking forward to seeing her, I already have ticket to see the movie during New York film festival.

karina on

she always looks super beautiful:)) she has such a beautiful family, wish all of them the best;)))))

Mary on

In what world is a grown man stolen? Some you weak women that can’t keep a man want to blame the beautiful Angelina for your misery.
See how Brad’s life has transformed since he dumped that fake, miserable, conniving, spiteful Anniston, and see how her life has stayed stagnant with all her fake relationships, through it all, Angelina has stayed above the fray being the woman of substance that she is.

ROYALTY on

I LOVE HER SOO MUNCH.

Belle on

Angie is certainly my favorite Hollywood personality ever! she’s beautiful, sexy ,elegant and with all the good deeds she’s done in the WORLD.

Julie on

Angelina Jolie,whatever she wears will always look good on her.She has the height,the grace and the persona to carry any dress or any clothing for that matter.She’s beautiful and wonderful.Can’t wait for the premier of Changeling.I’m sure it’s going to be a blast!!!!To Mel and Missy,you are the perfect example of an annoying person,get over it!!!PEACE

laura on

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

Kim on

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.

Kim on

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……

Sheena on

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

JESSICA *-* on

I love her eclectic style…simply flawless.

Julie on

Angelina Jolie and her children(including the twins)will be on the cover of W magazine for their November issue.Hope Brad will be in there,too.For sure,I’ll be buying it or maybe going online to check on it.Love the Brangelina clan.

Yemmy Gbaks on

I really luv Angie and her luv for fashion

Jus on

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.

neil on

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.

I love everything about her.

Julie on

To Kim, I would like to know when CHILDBIRTH is considered an addiction.Are you saying that all Mothers who had given birth to 2 or more babies are addicts?.Wow,you are laughable.Your analysis is just plain STUPID! Angelina Jolie had given birth to Shiloh and the Twins,thats 2 deliveries.I didn’t see you making a foolish comment about Marie Osmond who gave birth to 7 children!I suggest you go back to school!!!!

deena on

She is always elegant.

Susan on

1) You CAN read an aricle on people you don’t like. Don’t tell me those of you “lovers” don’t do it – please.
2) Why can’t everyone have their own opinions here without being insulted?
3) Though, Angelina and Brad are amazing when it comes to humanitarian issues, they are definitely scum when it comes to lying & cheating. It doesn’t make them the worst people in the world, but it is what it is. I read about them and love to see what they did for charity here and there but when it comes to how they got together it really is terrible.

austexgrl on

Can you say narcissism??

Lisa on

I agree with the person that said it’s very ironic that she started a relationship with a married man but won’t speak to her own father for cheating on her mother. I’ve never been a big fan of Angie or Brad. Don’t care for their movies in general, don’t think they are all that beautiful. They do have charitable hearts but with that kind of money, I think it’s only right that they give back to people that truly need it. They have more money than they could spend in 10 lifetimes. As far as adopting/giving birth to that many children….to each their own. I don’t think I could personally handle that many kids all at once. But for the kids’ sake, I hope they each get the attention and love they deserve on a daily basis…and not from nannies and assistants, but from their parents.

... on

Maybe people will finally believe Jen is over the divorce once her stupid fans get over it!

It has been FOUR years, move on, some of you act like Jen is your best friend or something

appetizing on

Haters leave Angie alone!

whatever on

At least Angie is not a crying baby like the Brad’s Ex. Jen is pretty but really a boring person. Angie won Brad because he wants to be with her… Face the Fact! Life goes on. Angie is a rolemodel. She is not a fake person.

esq on

I wish she’ll just stay wherever she is, and be a REAL mom! Jolie’s style was never attractive, she’s always creepy and desperate for attention. She finally attracted attention when she hooked up with a married man who was then half of the “golden couple”, and the “recycling” began and People MAg is a big part of it.

christina on

Not a big fan of her style.. not a big fan of her..

? on

Why is Angie getting so much credit for having kids out of wedlock? And if you think she or Brad are raising them, I have a bridge I want to sell you. Those Hollywood stars do not raise their own kids – they all have nannies. I’m sick to death of the hollywood people all proud of having kids and most of them aren’t married and no plans to be. They are a poor example for our younger generation.

I love angelina, and all you people need to stop hating on her. She is single handlely saving all those children who aren’t able to get the care and love that they need. So, she needs to be known for her hard work and for being i think one of the best actresses around today. I will continue loving her and watching her movies.

Brad Pitt is looking so mature and so happy and handsome for the last 4 years.I doubt if he cares for Jennifer Aniston one bit.He’s probably breathing a sigh of relief for getting out of that horrible,boring marriage.Brad and Angie are really soulmates,they love and support each other and they both have common interests and goals in life.Way to go Brangelina!!!!

Miss her on

I read one of her interviews and I became a big fan.What impressed me more was finding out that she started her charity work in her early 20 way before meeting Brad Pitt.She’s an amazing and strong woman and I’ll continue to donate to her charities.I like that she doesn’t let critisism get in the way of her charity work and the way she lives.Keep shining Angelina.

Mel A. Estrelles on

I LOVE YOU ANGELINA JOLIE, always pray for your family. Take care of yourself too.GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY, always. . .

Cristina on

Just stop on that stupidity of her “stealing” someone else husband! No one can “steal” a husband or wife, If they don’t want to be stolen! We are talking about people, not a pet or a object, that can take decisions by themselves! I supose that Brad has something to say about it! I guess he wasn’t sold to his ex-wife, right? Angelina isn’t perfect, because there’s no such a thing: “perfect person”, but she’s better than moust of us! Great Actress, very talented, and a lovely human being!

Lynn on

Wonderful news. Can’t wait to see her and the twins out and about. Angelina you are wonderful and I love your style. Thanks for being such a wonderful person and first of all a mom.

catt on

You people are utterly pathetic. This deceitful phony of a tramp is held up in high esteem by this magazine and you idiots for what reason?? She parades around with her brood of ever expanding children neither she nor Brad can care for on their own (merely PR props) along with donating meager sums to charity (another PR prop) which she hails to the world (unbelievably tacky). I can’t wait for the day when the media takes off their gloves and shows the real Angelina – how foolish all you fans will feel then.

Julie E on

She always looks the same to me. I like her style though.

yolly on

I miss her, she looks fabulous all the time. I’m glad Brad & her are together as a couple & have kids together. Can’t wait to see her with Brad on the red carpet.

Mombasa Gal on

Wow! All that vitriol aimed at someone you don’t know. Pray tell, how does a “real mom” act and do you have firsthand knowledge of her lack of parenting skills? If you are going to accuse someone of something, then you should be able to back it up with some proof at the very least. And by proof, I don’t mean “insider sources” from the tabs du jour.

As Angie herself once said, it is not her job to make you comfortable with her life. It is HER life. Do YOU have the public constantly criticizing everything YOU do?

I admire this young woman for being the very essence of GRACE UNDER FIRE these last 3 years. I APPLAUD her for having the STRENGTH OF WILL to follow her convictions, face her demons and come out the other side.

... on

Why are people reading an article or even clicking on an article about Angelina if they don’t even like her and say they don’t care?

If you truly did not care then you would not even bother looking at news about her, that’s what I do with celebs I don’t like.

First off, I have no real opinion on the personal lives of celebrities AS I DON’T KNOW THEM AND THERE IS NO TELLING IF WHAT IS BEING PUBLISHED ABOUT THEM IS TRUE OR JUST SENSATIONAL. Some of you act like you actually KNOW these people. You can admire their style, but before you waste your time commenting on the lives of people you know nothing about you might want to GET A LIFE.

pamela on

This woman is truly a nut case…people love her style???? come on what style She has OTHER people pick out her clothes for her….She has no style…what don’t you all get about that!! A great mother…..give me a break..how about the single mom with 3 kids working 2 jobs…now that’s a great mother!!

kim on

Hassosehr…what is she dishonest about you moron!!!!

kim on

all of you are haters…..jealous, jealous, jealous..Brad and Jen were having problems way before Angie came around! You wish you had her life!!!!

No on

It’s so creepy how some of these die hard fans are jumping the bit to see her again. Very odd. What’s worse is that some people call her the best mother around with the cutest kids. tht must make their own children feel real great. Please…

To Kim on

Yeah Kim, good argument… You call people “haters” and jealous. What are you 15? Grow up idiot.

Tired of angie fans bringing up Jen on

Notice how it’s usually the Angelina fans who constantly bring up excuses as to why Brad left Jen. I wish they’d all stop bringing up Jen and let that go already. Why is it nevessary to talk about her if they have been divored for a while now. Move on if you LOVE this creepy “perfect” family so much.

Also to the people who say, “If you don’t like Angie, why do you come here and post.” Most likely because they are entitled to post an opinion just like the freak Angie fans are. The same question can be asked for Angie fans who pick on Jen nonstop and make excuses about why Brad cheated on her. It’s not an “I love Angie” fan only board so suck it up and get used to the fact that some people don’t like her.

To Nenete's post on

There are a lot of other people out there who “single handedly” save less fortunate children from bad situations.

You actlike Angelina is the first person to ever adopt or help a child in need. She’s not exactly super mom. There are other hard working mothers out there.

It’s sad that Angie seems to get recognition for working hard when she’s never been a less fortunate mom who had to work two or three jobs to get food on the table for her kids. That’s wokring hard, not going off to make millions while your nanny keeps your kids all week while your off smiling for cameras and bragging about how you save people.

And really Nanete, if you’re a grown woman using the word “hater” shame on you…

JAJA on

She looks great always..

Gosh, how quick everyone forgets…she STOLE someone else’s husband!!!! only a skank would do that. remember when she was wearing billy bob’s blood around her neck? what a wierdo! now she is mom of the year…give me a break!
