WHO WORE WHAT?.....86th Annual Academy Awards: Angelina Jolie in Elie Saab Haute Couture Fall 2013

 Angelina Jolie in Elie Saab Couture Fall 2013

The fabulous Angelina Jolie attended the 2014 Academy Awards with her Academy Award-nominated husband (of course!) Brad Pitt. Angelina wore a golden sequined stunner of a gown from the Elie Saab Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2013 collection. The gown is all hand-done with an ivory tulle base featuring beautiful hand-sewn sequins in gold and copper. This is probably the runway sample; these gowns go for $100,000+ and while it would not be surprising they would create a new one for her, I don't think this was the case here. Notice how longer it is on the model when put side-by-side (much more "white space" toward the hem area than there is on Angelina). I have a feeling that it was shortened/hemmed for Jolie.

The blouson shape of the gown's top portion is one that Angelina Jolie case you have forgotten, here's a recap of Angelina Jolie: The Blouson Queen...

 Angelina Jolie at the 2009 Golden Globe Awards (left) and at the 2011 Golden Globe Awards--both in Atelier Versace. The one of the left is more of a blouson than the emerald green one on the right. That year, she decided to go "Blouson Lite".
