Angelina Jolie's Kids Wore Her Hand-Me-Downs on the Eternals Red Carpet
It wouldn’t be right to categorize Angeline Jolie as camera-reticent (have you forgotten her leg-baring moment?). The actor has had her fair share of appearances and a vault full of pictures, dressed in the most stunning outfits, to prove her cachet even though she chooses to make very few now. When you’re someone like Angelina Jolie, a UN Refugees Special Envoy and a child’s right activist, I guess glamour does take a back seat. And even when she does appear on the red carpet these days, there’s usually a positive takeaway hidden in plain sight.
The actor made a red carpet appearance for the premiere of her Marvel’s movie, Eternals, with her kids (minus Pax Thien) wearing a structured draped corset and pants set from Balmain’s Resort 22 collection by Olivier Rousteing, jewellery from Tiffany &Co. and a unique silver lip cuff.
Now, on any other day, that would have become the highlight of our fashion conversations, but the sartorial thunder was actually stolen by her daughters, Zahara and Shiloh, who recycled and repurposed their mother’s outfits, respectively, and highlighted Gen-Z’s affinity for vintage hand-me-downs and general disdain for over-consumption.
Shiloh wore a beige high-low silk poplin dress with bunched fabric on the top from designer Gabriela Hearst. The same dress, when worn by Angelina Jolie in July for the Guerlain x UNESCO “Women for Bees” programme featured a simple neckline and a full skirt. She tastefully hacked the dress and modified it to align it with her youthful design sensibilities that left not only the onlookers but the original designer impressed, too.
Zahara, on the other hand, recycled her mother’s Elie Saab gown that the actor had worn to the Oscars in 2014. Seven years on, the dress still looks pristine with exquisite beads detailing on the translucent pink tulle. She has also inherited her mother’s simplicity, as she’s worn the dress with nothing more than a pair of diamond earrings.
Angelina Jolie has always been vocal about shopping practices like investing in pieces that she can wear and rewear. The fact that she lets her kids raid her couture closet is, in our honest opinion, what makes her a fashionably cool and eco-conscious mom!
