Despite Internet chatter, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt never made it to Sunday's Academy Awards. So where were they?

Overseas in Venice.

On Sunday, Jolie, 34, took daughter Shiloh, 3 1/2, to a children's party -- along with proud pop Pitt, 46, Maddox, 8, Pax, 6, and Zahara, 5. (The Jolie-Pitt family is in Venice as Jolie films The Tourist with Johnny Depp.)

Shiloh recently raised eyebrows after debuting a pixie cut.

But child psychologist Lawrence Batler tells Shi's style-- which includes $140 boys' jeans -- is normal. "Kids try on roles," he tells Us. "How she dresses reflects what interests her now."
