Who: Angelina Jolie
Where: At the annual Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Governors Awards held in Hollywood
Wearing: A black Atelier Versace gown featuring Swarovski crystal embellishments and a lace overlay, teamed with minimal make-up and diamond earrings
Verdict: When I think of a Versace gown I think sexy and risqué, normally with a thigh-high split or a plunging neckline, so it was surprising to see Angelina Jolie’s simple and elegant Atelier Versace on the red carpet at the Governors Awards.
I love the sexiness of Versace, but I also adore the beauty and elegance of this gorgeous gown, which was totally fitting for the occasion, which saw Angelina pick up the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award for her dedication to humanitarian causes.
There is something about this floor-sweeping gown, maybe it is the Swarovski crystal-embellished detailing, maybe its the old Hollywood-style lace overlay to the shoulders, or maybe it’s the classic black – I just love it.
Are you a fan of Angelina’s elegant look or was you expecting more?
