Worst-dressed at the 2014 Oscars: Angelina Jolie in matronly Elie Saab

Seriously? You are quite possibly
the most beautiful woman in the world. You are rich beyond belief, famous beyond surname. Why did you turn up on the
2014 Oscars red carpet dressed like a septuagenarian socialite in matronly, metallic Elie Saab? Well, friends, turns out there IS method to this particular sartorial madness.
Rumour has it that Angelina’s new red carpet strategy is to dress like an ambassador’s wife, not a Hollywood superstar. In her important role as Special Envoy of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Angelina wants to be seen as a both a philanthropic powerhouse and a serious filmmaker, not someone who cares whether or not she makes the best-dressed list. On the fashion front, that means she’s making very, very safe choices. (Although she clearly veered from this approach at the
2014 BAFTAs when she knocked it out of the park in a Saint Lauren tux.) Expect more high-necked gowns, safe sparkle and benevolent smiles. And look for her to position herself alongside greats like Sidney Poitier, as she did at the Oscars.
Clearly, the girl’s got a plan.
