Angelina Jolie wore a Jenny Packham robe at the Hollywood Film Awards

21st Annual Hollywood Film Awards - Arrivals

This is one way of cutting down on awards-show fatigue: refusing to televise previously televised awards shows. If an actor gets an award and it’s not on TV, does it still make a sound? I don’t know. The Hollywood Film Awards were held last night, and in previous years, this was (going from memory) a televised event. But not this year. You can see the list of winners here – Kate Winslet took home an award, as did Gary Oldman, the cast of I, Tonya, Sam Rockwell, Allison Janney and more.

Angelina Jolie picked up the award for Best Foreign Film for First They Killed My Father. This was actually the second event Angelina did this weekend for her Oscar campaign – she also did some kind of Directors Guild of America Oscar screening too. Angelina decided to go with a silver-grey Jenny Packham gown, Charlotte Olympia shoes and jewelry from Tiffany’s. I mean… she looks like she’s wearing a robe. It’s a lovely robe! I would love to own this robe. But it’s a robe, not a gown. I suspect she chose it because A) she loves any shade of grey and silver-grey and B) because it seemed comfortable and loose. I keep hoping that Jolie will really wow us with her post-Brad wardrobe, but it’s really not happening.

Margot provides yet another example of why people need to stop wearing Louis Vuitton.

I LOVE Elizabeth Olsen’s Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo. LOVE. IT.

Viola Davis wore Alberta Ferretti, and Mary J. Blige wore Zuhair Murad. I don’t think this is the color for Viola – she looks better in anything lighter, brighter or more saturated.

    Flap or no flap, Carey Mulligan can do no wrong in my eyes!

  2. Alix says:

    In all fairness to the outfit, Dakota herself is kind of boring and meh.

  3. Alexandria says:

    I feel like she can’t wait to go back to her castle in Transylvania.

    Still your fan Angie. Love you.

    • crazydaisy says:

      Think about it: Back in the 8-0′s, Madonna spearheaded the lingerie-as-clothing trend by wearing bras, slips and corsets on stage, and out and about in public. This trend has never died. The slip dress is now completely normal day-wear. So why not a robe-dress? I think it’s beautiful, classy, modest and mature. Love.

  4. littlemissnaughty says:

    None of these outfits convince me, they somehow all look a bit … inexpensive? However, Jolie’s lipstick game is outstanding. That’s a glorious red.

    • Handwoven says:

      It is amazing. I’m a big-lipped girl (pouty! bee-stung! whatever nice euphemism there is for giant lips!) with pale skin and I have a really hard time wearing red lipstick and not feeling like either a clown or Janice the muppet. I don’t know how she does it.

      • littlemissnaughty says:

        It took until my late 20s for me to be comfortable with a red because people look at you differently, they really pay attention to your face in a different way. I think a semi-matte might be a good starter option because it looks more elegant than sexy and that might be more comfortable at first? Or a tint. Or, if you’re really unsure, a less opaque texture like Rouge Coco Shine (Chanel). Most brands offer these by now, drugstore ones as well.

        … Don’t get me started on makeup, we’ll be here all day. :-)

    Elizabeth Olsen FTW! With Viola a close second.

    • Nancy says:

      I agree. She looked the best. Since the headline belonged to Jolie, I have to comment on her. She looks like Rita Hayworth or one of the old Hollywood actresses wearing her dressing gown to the last moment and then just saying what the Hell I will wear this. However, she did walk alone, without the kids, so props to her for that. *also to be fair, she has never made statements with her wardrobe, except for the leg dress, she lets her work speak for her*

      • Esmom says:

        I like the color of AJ’s dress, I am also a sucker for silver metallic gowns. In theory, of course, I have never had occasion to wear one! But that’s about all I liked about her overall look.

    • Erica_V says:


  7. Maya says:

    She looks gorgeous and there is a photo with Loung where they both look so happy.

    Their friendship of like 17 years is good to see. I would love to be part of Angelina’s female friendship circle which includes Loung, Marianne Pearl, Jane Goodall, Owners of Namibia animal retreat. Just imaging the wonderful conversations they would have.

    So glad that this movie, Angelina and Cambodia is getting praise and awards.

    With the Hollywood men being exposed left right and centre, maybe this year’s awards will finally be filled with women with talent and they will also get the awards.

    PS: If this movie gets nominated for the big ones, I think Angelina will bring her a game – she always dresses beautiful during Oscars etc.

    • Adorable says:

      Right!i think back last year and earlier this year when “People”here were saying her career is over,FTKMF would be ripped apart and she’ll never work in Hollywood again…Few months later…She’s having her ”Come back”..Hopefully plenty of awards Noms coming

      • I am bored says:

        Yeah, Brad Pitt’s Pr team using Page six and Hollywood reporter to trash her for being over and saying Brad has custody of hollyweird. Lmao that was all right after the amazing Cambodian premiere. He was jealous and even had E ! News fabricate a story about how he was there too… Secretly of course. 🙄

      • Karen says:

        To be honest she has nothing on her plate except Maleficent 2.

        She may get an Oscar nod for Best Foreign Film. I don’t really know how that will enhance her acting career.

  8. Enough Already says:

    This headline made me snort laugh. Packham really should stick to arrested development duchess wear.

    • WMGDtoo says:

      I saw some of the other dresses from the collection. There were some beautiful choices. Angie chose one of the worse ones that was shown. Besides she billowed the top of the dress too much. And it make it all look ill fitting. She has access to any designer and dress in the world and this is what she chose. Her makeup is gorgeous but the dress is just a big old NO.

  9. Felicia says:

    Jolie needs a stylist

  10. Jenna says:

    Angelina would kill it in Dakotas suit. They need to switch outfits. But Angie, that shade of red lipstick does you zero favours. #stillagoddess

    • Laura says:

      Yeeeeesssssss! I love Angie in a fitted suit. I miss that style on her.

    • Tessy says:

      She looks like she’s sick. She’s extremely pale and drawn, and the bright red lipstick exacerbates it.

      • I am bored says:

        You need glasses. She looks beautiful and very hollywood glam. She’s never tanned and hopefully never will. Love the red lips.

  11. D says:

    It’s a shame that she rarely wears colors, I think brighter colors suit her better.

    • Snowflake says:

      Yes! If I had her looks, I would wear more flattering stuff than she does.

      • Naddie says:

        I don’t mean to sound rude, by no means, but there are high chances that you’d be tired of wearing what people expect from you if they were you. Again, hope I’m not sounding rude since I always read this blog and I like your comments.

  12. Lenn says:

    I wish Angelina had chosen smaller breasts. I know, it’s her perogative, but they just don’t fit her frame.

    • WMGDtoo says:

      They would if she gained some weight. But sometimes they look smaller and others not. They don’t actually look that big in these pictures. to me at least.

    • I am bored says:

      Weird that you wish something was different on a woman’s body. Body shame is disgusting. Grow up.

    • Casey. _ says:

      Give it a rest. Stop body shaming her and obsessing over her breasts or mastectomy or surgeries or whatever fav topic the meangirls here like bringing up constantly. It’s so disgusting. She’s not the sum of her parts. She’s an accomplished woman, and humanitarian who’s done more good in the world than most- she deserves to not be reduced to her cup size. Stop dissecting her like a serial killer or Donald Trump.

  13. Adorable says:

    Im not crazy about Angies dress either,minus the red lips its basically the dress she wore to the critics choice awards two years back.She does however look beautiful and rested

  14. Julianna says:

    The way it billows below her bust is incredibly unflattering. So often the fit of her clothes let’s her down.

    Olsen’s tuxedo jacket is terrible. Too big, but not big enough to be pointedly oversized.

  15. Beth says:

    It’s a pretty robe,but the color is blah, bad, and boring. I would wear it at home as a robe, but I don’t wear my pj’s outside unless I’m taking the trash out or reading on the porch at night. Angie needs a stylist ASAP

    • I am bored says:

      She has a stylist. Jen Rade has been her stylist for more than a decade.

    • KBB says:

      Her look is so consistent I don’t think you can blame her stylist (she does have one.) She has a very specific aesthetic that she seems to like and stick with, so no stylist is going to be able to change that.

      I think her best look was when she wore that deconstructed tuxedo. Less bag lady, more badass chic is what works for her, IMO.

  16. Mia4s says:

    The first time they were televised was 2014 and I believe the ratings were a disaster. We may see a cut down ceremony later. They’re not real awards (sightly more meaningless than the People’s Choice Awards), it’s a “fund raiser”/advertising gimmick. They call up the publicists and offer an award to the celeb if they will promise to show up. Then someone who owes them a favour/is friendly enough with the celeb has to show up and present it.

    This time of year is fascinating to see who shows up at these things. They are either Oscar hopefuls, friends of Oscar hopefuls (or friends who owe favours or who have PR commitments), or those hustling hard for work. Everyone else is off filming movies or doing plays on stage or whatever. No one is there because they want to be.

  17. Kate says:

    I like Angie’s lipstick and Liz Olsen’s tuxedo. Margot… Poor Margot.

  18. DiamondGirl says:

    Dakota looks much better in this than in that pink dress in the other post.

    I think Viola looks beautiful – the color of the gown with her hair color really meshes.

    Don’t like the rest.

  19. Felicia says:

    I kind of like the Art Nouveau vibe of Margot’s dress. I wouldn’t wear it myself though.

    Silver grey bathrobe that is too long and doesn’t fit well. Poor choice. The theme here is “British designers” it seems.

  20. LittlefishMom says:

    I think AJ looks pretty. That side shot of her is beautiful.

  21. Elle says:

    Does anyone else think it looks like Dakota lost the embellishment on her left shoe?

  22. Adele Dazeem says:

    Didn’t Katie Cambridge wear this exact dress? I swear between the Joe/Taylor similarity in the eyes and the Angelina Kate clothing stuff you guys are messing with my head today. Next up: a post on Amy Adams and Sasha Barron Cohens wife for the win! Lol

  23. Wren33 says:

    I actually like what Mary J. Blige is wearing. The tuxedo effect makes the Zuhair Murad lace interesting again.

  24. Nora says:

    Angelina Jolie looks unhealthy.

  25. mary says:

    i loved this book, i read it in a college feminism class. AJ’s style use to be interesting to watch and she used to just be mind blowing as far as her appearance goes- i miss that, because she would look so beautiful almost not of this world

    i agree, i haven’t been a big AJ fan since her divorce but maybe it’s time hollywood recognizes and celebrate women like AJ and their behind the scenes work now that we see what has been going on with men like weinstein of miramax etc. those films are all tainted now in my eyes

    • I am bored says:

      Yeah, it’s funny how you brange fans haven’t been a fan of her since the divorce because she , her kids and the nanny or friend who called the police outted Brad as an abuser.

      Then we read articles about why we should believe the victims, but I guess that’s only if Brad Pitt isn’t the abuser. 🙄

    • Fa says:

      Then it means you do not have kids to understand a mother point of view.

  26. Bijou says:

    Carey looks great. Everyone else looks a hot mess. Angelina, please wear a bra, or at least some pasties…

  27. Anastasia says:

    I would wear that robe/gown/dress whatever you want to call it SO HARD.

  28. Ann says:

    Viola Davis, stunning! Mary J. Blige pushing the envelope as usual for the win. Suits were definitely trending that night.

  29. browniecakes says:

    What is happening that Lizzy is the best dressed? If Angie loves the wrap look she should wear some vintage Diane von Furstenberg

  30. HK9 says:

    Angie could basically wear a brown sack and look stunning.

  31. I am bored says:

    Angelina Jolie looks fabulous.

    Here’s what her childhood friend has to say about Angelina Jolie.

    • truth hurts says:

      Beautiful from a childhood friend. You can tell that she is a sweet soul and gets so much crap because she is a beautiful wonder. People can’t except that. Pitt and Aniston are atrocious because both of them let this woman take full blame for their failures and even her son. I saw a youtube video and the comments about Maddox were beyond insane. It is ridiculous and all he had to do was make a statement and settle the dust, but he won’t admit his wrong. I hope she never goes back to a man that has no backbone. ‘Hell he even admitted to knowing he has an advantage because he is afforded that. One thing for sure good things come to good people. I believe she loved Pitt but she will find love again, true dedicated love.
      By the way she was gorgeous. She doesn’t have that dried sunburned skin because doesn’t tan or go in the sun for obvious reasons.

  32. Erica_V says:

    Bad color for AJ and ooof that last side shot pic is.. not flattering to say the least.

    If Margot’s dress was up on the shoulders not off I think I’d like it. Interesting pattern.

    Carey’s flap looks like a blank hello my name is tag! & I love Elizabeth Olsen’s tuxedo! Jacket could be a touch more fitted but the pants are perfect.

    Love Viola’s lipstick but not a fan of Marys outfit. The cummerbund looks weird.

  33. Sara says:

    Love Angelina but hate the dress. I don’t really like this color of dress on anyone.

  34. Joannie says:

    Yikes! Angie looks like one of those “Day of the Dead” skeletons in the third pic.

  35. Gaby says:

    Angelina is wearing way too much makeup and the botox ob her forehead…yikes. She should have worn a bra at least, she looks like she’s lounging around the house before putting on the actual dress. She would look so pretty it she were just a tad more adventurous in fashion, here she’s just boring.

  36. Shannon says:

    Meh. I’m about her age (almost exactly one year younger) and ended a long-term relationship a couple years back. I’m feeling her (AJ) vibe. The, “I’m here, I’m comfortable, I’m not here to be your pretty entertainment” vibe. That’s how I roll, and my younger, less-jaded friend constantly tells me “You’re pretty, step it up a notch.” And I’m like, “ORLY? So another man can come in and ruin my life? No thanks.” I hope both AJ and I move past, but who knows?

    • Felicia says:

      I get what you’re saying on a personal level. That said, this is a professional engagement on behalf of Netflix who probably paid for it. Two different things.

  37. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Angie is so DGAF about fashion and the red carpet and it kind of makes me love her more.

  38. Grant says:

    Not only is the robe awful, it’s also very ill-fitting.

  39. Marcus says:

    I actually like the dress. It reminds me of the one she wore to the premiere of Unbroken. Its nice to see her in something other than black. Her lip color is on fire. I love it. She seems happier now that Brad is gone. I think things got bad between them and she tried to help him as much as she could. There is only so much you can do. Post divorce I see her dating but keeping it private and maybe she will adopt a few more kids an African sister for Zahara and maybe she will look into Central America for a potential adoption.
