Angelina Jolie is a great beauty, but we must never forget that she is an even greater philanthropist. She uses her power and influence to make a global impact. At the 17th Sarajevo Film Festival, she received the Honorary Heart of Sarajevo Award for the awareness that she has brought to the country’s refugees.
On the red carpet, Angelina usually opts for black, keeping it simple and chic. On this occasion, she went for a coral hue: a silk blouson gown from Elie Saab’s Spring 2011 collection with a belted waist and a thigh-high slit. She went for the opposite of the runway look with just a simple gold bracelet, nude Jimmy Choo pumps and a matching clutch. For beauty, Angelina kept it subtle and fresh with straight hair and nude lips. The look was exquisite on her and I hope she will opt for color on the red carpet more often.
Here is how you can dazzle in coral like Angelina right now.
Nothing gives life to a simple ensemble like a glitzy link necklace. Try Kenneth Jay Lane’s Large Link Necklace ($125) on for size this season. Color is the best way to stand out in a crowd for day and for night. Halston Heritage’s Cape Back Silk Crepe Dress ($445) will help you do it easily. I cannot get enough of Fendi handbags and the Shimmer Leather Chain Tote ($1450) is the perfect statement accessory to buy right now.
