She’s always been taken seriously as an actress thanks to roles in films like A Mighty Heart and her Oscar win for Girl, Interrupted, but with her directorial debut In the Land of Blood and Honey hitting theaters Dec. 23, Angelina Jolie is seemingly taking her style to a more sophisticated level.
Jolie premiered the film in New York City on Monday wearing a floor-length black silk Ralph Lauren skirt and equally flowy top. The next night, she went to a Marie Claire-sponsored screening of the movie wearing black velveteen slacks and a matching tuxedo jacket by L’Agence, with a shiny black blouse to match.
Though Jolie wears a lot of black in her daily life — and on the red carpet — many of her recent outings have been punctuated by brighter colors, higher hemlines and a bit more skin. Perhaps the actress is trying to dress the part of director — or maybe she was just inspired by the gloomy New York City weather. Tell us: Do you like Jolie’s dark and sophisticated getups?
