Very attentive fashion watchers noted that Angelina Jolie, wearing a lovely blue dress from the Max Azria Spring ’09 Collection, appeared to have worn her dress backwards this past weekend when she attended the 15th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards. Today, US Weekly reports that Angelina‘s stylist, Jen Rade, admits to the mag that yes, Angelina wore the dress backwards and did so purposely. Uh huh. Here are pictures of Angelina on the red carpet at the SAG Awards this past Sunday evening and of a model wearing the very same dress properly (ie. not backwards) on the runway this past September at NY Fashion Week:
Blogs have been buzzing that Angelina Jolie wore her cornflower blue Max Azria gown backward at Sunday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles. Well, she did. Her stylist Jen Rade tells Usmagazine.com Jolie purposefully turned around the dress — which was from Azria’s spring 2009 collection — to make it “more blouson.” (The actress was also able to show off her tattoos more.) sked about getting ready, Jolie told E!’s Giuliana Rancic: “I just like to be comfortable. I see what comfortable options are out there.”
Um, right. I mean … I suppose this explanation makes sense but are any of y’all buying it? Doesn’t this wearing one’s dress backwards thing remind you of anyone else who already tried to make this look work?
I mean, if I were Angelina, I wouldn’t want people thinking I copied Céline Dion either so I might have my stylist come up with a rational explanation too! I suppose, in any event, Ange still looked nice in her dress … even if she wore it wrong. She did show off her beloved tattoos and looked good in the process so … no harm, no foul. At least it gives us something else to talk about … rather than the fact that she keeps losing all of her award nominations, that is. I can’t wait to see what outfit she decides to wear to the Academy Awards next month … and whether she’ll wear it frontwards or backwards. Mebbe she’ll wear THIS dress? It’s sure to cause a sensation whichever way she wears it :)
