Angelina Jolie is Bringing Back the Hollywood Blowout

Aside from her well-honed roles as mother, humanitarian, actress, and filmmaker, Angelina Jolie is a longtime advocate of the slicked-back bun. So it’s only natural that when she decides to let her hair down, it’s usually worthy of a whiplash-inducing double take. Such was the case this week in Los Angeles, where Jolie prepped for an afternoon out with a buoyant blowout worthy of the red carpet.

A Sunday lunch with son Pax offered a jumping-off point for a full show of polished brunette, finger-raked to one side and styled to fall in soft, inward bends over shoulders. An entirely nude ensemble and palette of similarly barely-there makeup—save for a pressing of peach-pink color to her lips—ensured focus fell on Jolie’s stylized mane, which, like chunky knits and transition-ready whites, had onlookers yearning for fall’s pulled-together sensibilities.

The strapless, knit Ryan Roche dress communicated her signature combination of elegance and ease, with the midi-length dress a popular choice with stylish high profile women this summer, championed by royals such as Queen Letizia of SpainQueen Rania of Jordan, and Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex. A complementary shawl (also by Roche) and Jolie’s go-to bag, the Céline top-handle tote, added to the polished vibes, with classic stilettos (what else!) as the ladylike finishing touch.

So make like Jolie and slather on some SPF (her immaculate complexion is nothing if calculated), grab your favorite shades, and welcome summer’s last legs with lengths that are done-up and let down.
