Happy Birthday, Angie!
Angelina Jolie turns 40 today, June 4, and there are countless reasons to celebrate her! She’s an Oscar-winning actress, an international humanitarian, and a cancer-prevention advocate—not to mention a mother to six gorgeous children with husband Brad Pitt.
But you know what else she is? The ultimate red carpet goddess! She loves color, rocks sparkles better than Taylor Swift, and knows how to work the hell out of her hourglass silhouette. In short, she is a fashionista’s fantasy.
Which is exactly why we’ve rounded up her best style moments, so you, too, can revel in her sartorial glory. Scroll down to see the 10 times we’ve wanted to be Jolie on the red carpet (with the occasional appearance from her delicious husband, Mr. Pitt).
Canary Yellow Emanuel Ungaro in 2007
Michelle Williams at the Oscars. Emma Stone in London. Angelina Jolie, here at Cannes Film Festival. Truly, is it possible to not slay in yellow? (Answer: In the perfect shade, no, it is not.)
Olive Green Max Azria Atelier in 2008
While we’re sure it was exhausting being seven months into her pregnancy with twins Vivienne and Knox, the actress, at Cannes again, looked positively radiant in her cleavage-baring dress. And again, color! (Bring it back, Angie!)
Caramel Chiffon Versace in 2009
A sheer delight at Cannes once more! (See what we did there?)
Black Leather Michael Kors in 2009
Classic bombshell Angie (at the Inglourious Basterds premiere in Los Angeles), being the badass she is. What else is there to say?
Scarlet Versace in 2010
At the Moscow premiere of Salt. Ayyyy, mami!
Red-Accented White Atelier Versace in 2012
At the Golden Globes, it was all about the red accents—down to her perfectly painted crimson pout.
Black Velvet Atelier Versace in 2012
As if anyone could forget the Oscars dress that started the meme! Lots have tried that pose since, none have succeeded.
Dove Gray Ralph & Russo in 2012
Jolie rarely does sweet, but she did it oh so well at the Paris premiere of In the Land of Blood and Honey, where she donned this soft, one-sleeved dress, complete with a hand-dyed, organza rosebud on one shoulder.
Black and White Saint Laurent in 2014
No one—man or woman—rocks a tuxedo quite like Angelina Jolie, as she did here at the BAFTAS.
Licorice Atelier Versace in 2014
Last, but possibly most magnificent, the actress premiered her blockbuster hit Maleficent in L.A. wearing a doozy of a villainess dress: a structured number made out of rubberized silk, gathered at one hip to create a statement skirt. Talk about dressing for the occasion. Go eat your hearts out, Disney princesses.
Honorable Mention: Cream Ralph & Russo Couture in 2014
Because she made the case for the mini-cape in this moment! And thanks to that touch, the ensemble, which she wore to the London premiere of Unbroken, had a military feel—particularly fitting, as she invited a group of uniform-clad veterans to join her at the event. Once again, #Goddess.
