She’s officially a caped crusader!
Angelina Jolie has played many action heroes on the big screen. (#LaraCroft, never forget.) But on Tuesday, Nov. 25, the third-time director premiered her latest effort, the war drama Unbroken, in London, and she did so in one seriously badass mini-cape worthy of only the most fashionable superhero.
The newly minted Mrs. Brad Pitt, 39, stepped onto the red carpet at the Odeon Leicester Square in an elegant LWD with a structured topper, courtesy of Ralph & Russo Couture. Nude heels, gold hoop earrings, and a pin completed her ’50s-inspired ensemble.
Keeping all the focus on her crisp snow-white dress, Jolie kept her beauty look simple. The Maleficent actress swept her hair up into a neat chignon. She also lined her eyes, but added only the slightest hint of blush and a nude lip.
Jolie has been jet-setting around the world to promote her latest film, which is already receiving Oscar buzz. The mom of six kicked off her tour in Australia, then flew back to New York City for a few days with her children. She then jetted off again, across the pond, where she was recently awarded the title Honorary Dame Commander by Queen Elizabeth II.
And England seemed pleased to have her back! Not only did Jolie pose with the handsome star of her film, Jack O’Connell, but she also took time out to meet current and retired members of the British Army.
Though surely Jolie had her pick of leading gents for Unbroken, the A-lister told EW that she has a special connection with O’Connell. “We both like the process of acting—it’s a desire to communicate with others and a release for all the questions we have inside and all the pain and frustration,” Jolie explained. “When you have an opportunity to express all that you’re grateful.”
