Angelina Jolie Lent Her Elie Saab Oscars Dress to Her Daughter Seven Years On

“Enjoying your vintage pieces, if you have them, and rediscovering some vintage shops seems like part of the way forward.” So said Angelina Jolie of a more conscious approach to fashion, in her cover interview for British Vogue’s March 2021 issue. She actioned this attitude at the premiere for Eternals, where she revealed that her children Zahara, Knox, Vivienne, Shiloh and Maddox – who joined her on the red carpet – had rummaged through her wardrobe to find their respective looks for the evening.

“My kids are all mixed with vintage, and in my old Oscars dress. We did all vintage and upcycled my old stuff,” she mused. Zahara wore the most recognizable outfit: a dazzling Elie Saab couture gown that Jolie wore to the Oscars in 2014. Knox and Maddox sported suiting for the event, Vivienne wore a whimsical dress, and 15-year-old Shiloh wowed in a beige dress – not dissimilar to one Angelina wore to the Emmys back in 1998.

Angelina herself arrived at the highly-anticipated premiere wearing a draped khaki strapless look from Balmain’s Resort 2022 collection. Stylist Jason Bolden selected vintage Tiffany & Co. jewels for the actor, and commissioned a unique lip cuff.

Ahead of her Vogue shoot, she divulged to British Vogue’s editor-in-chief and European director Edward Enninful that she “invests in quality pieces”, and then “wears them to death”. “I don’t change things often, you know? That’s one of my things,” she said. Testament to this, an array of cherished staples from her own wardrobe featured in her Craig McDean cover shoot.

We hope that her ’90s looks are unearthed soon – that beaded Randolph Duke gown she wore to the Golden Globes in 1999 is a sure-fire winner.
