Angelina Jolie Wore Her SAG Awards Dress Backwards

Accidentally on purpose? Or an ode to Kriss Kross?

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 :)

    Knowing Angie she did it on purpose

  2. Camille

    Unlike Celine, Angie made it work. She looked classy.

  3. Celine looked like an idiot. Angelina looked very elegant.

  4. Illise

    either way the dress is ugly

  5. Mr. Gyllenhaal

    I think it looks way better backwards! She made a smart decision!!

  6. urnieburn

    Don’t forget about Kris Kross!! They were wearing their clothes backwards in the early 1990s. :)

  7. Kelly

    I probably would’ve worn it backwards as well! It looks horrible on the runway pic, while angelina just makes it work.

  8. tessa

    yeah i agree – as much as I’m not an angelina lover, she looked way better wearing the dress the way she did!

  9. lyndyloo

    she has no dress sense.
    I don’t fucking like this woman, I wont lie.
    people who know my posts on pitnb, know that I’m an Aniston fan, but that is not the only reason why I hate Angie.
    Angelina Jolie really believes that she is somewhat superior , her hollier than thou shit is getter tired.
    go fucking raise your army of kids and get the fuck out of my face please.

  10. Liz

    Looks better backwards. The right way shows way too much cleavage.

  11. elianara

    It looks way better backwards, and knowing Angelina, she did it on purpose, to show off her tattoos.

  12. Pam

    I agree with Mr. Gyllenhaal, it does look better backwards, and Angelina doesnt usually show cleavage so it makes sense. She is so gorgeous and always looks so fab that it doesnt matter if it was backwards, she is the one making the dress look good and not the other way around.

  13. Katt

    def looks better backwards. i think she rocked it ;)

  14. MeGs

    I love her style so much! Minus the vile of blood wearing days though ;)

  15. Grayson

    The dress is ugly and boring either way

  16. Shana

    The dress is quite ugly.

  17. I definitely think she did it on purpose. She probably wanted to show off her tattoos and remind the world how wild she is and how sexy she is and blah blah blah…

    I’m OVER Angelina. She’s SO contrived!!!!

  18. Christine

    Agree with posters saying dress is ugly either way. I am also copletely over Angelina. I never saw the appeal, and she really has a bad attitude now. i give her credit for her pretty good acting, for adopting kids, and doing all her other work but let’s get over her already!

  19. kiki

    I am not a fan of the dress in general but, Trent, can you stop commenting every time you see brad or Angelina that they are not winning their nominations? litteraly, every time you blog about them you say it. It gets a little annoying.

  20. Sooz

    It’s funny– there was a show on either HBO or Shotime after friends staring Lisa Kudrow as a tv actress making a comeback (duh), and she gets a dress to wear to the emmy’s from the first winner of project runway– and she ends up wearing it backwards on the red carpet by accident.

  21. Sooz

    Blurg– I didn’t read before I posted– I meant to mention that the show was called “the comeback”.

  22. Katie

    @ Klkl – There is nothing else going on with them right now, so its understandable that’s what Trent brings up. If it annoys you- skip the post.

    I like the dress backwards much better. I think it was a smart move.

  23. nicole

    she probably did do it on purpose. but did anyone else notice that the last 3 red carpets appearences have basically been all the same dresses? i expect more from her lol

  24. PixieBassline

    UGLY dress. It’s odd when you know someone has or at least CAN GET damn near any kind of clothing they desire… and then they end up dressed in something ugly.

  25. J2

    christine i couldn’t agree with you more. i think she’s an ok actress and personally she’s done a lot of good, but wtf is up with her attitude. every time she’s interviewed lately she comes off looking like a stuck up beeyatch who’s too cool for school. and why is it that she’s allowed to show up for awards/events looking like she put in zero effort and no one calls her out on it. fine, you have a zillion kids and don’t give a crap what you look like. but its an awards show – at least pretend like you care about the industry that got you where you are.

  26. PixieBassline

    It’s not like she has any really nice/pretty tats to show off anyway…

  27. aimie

    she looked fab and i say the model looks like shit! she needs a burger bad

  28. Traci

    How can you be “so over” someone when you say you were never a fan anyway?

  29. Kendra

    @Nicole, you are SO right on..Her last 3 looks are totally similiar..Boring..And I think she’s looking sickly skinny..I’ve never been a fan of her acting, but I’ve always thought she was gorgeous with a banging body..Now she almost looks anorexic..I’d understand if she was always this skinny, but she used to have some meat on her!

  30. Dustin

    That Angelina shes so avant garde!!!

  31. Dustin

    im kidding by the way

  32. Cherie

    Kinda snarky to talk about how she isn’t winning awards. Bottom line is that she was nominated. That is truly saying something, considering that there were countless other actresses that were not. In no way can she, or other actresses who aren’t winning awards, be considered as being a “loser”. She is in a very small group of actresses who were deemed worthy. Give her some credit for that.

    This goes for the actors as well.

  33. Luli

    Celine’s doesn’t look good because is too obvious the dress is backwards.
    Angelina looks beautiful and it gives her a chance to show off her tattoos.

  34. Luli

    Well, Celine’s isn’t a dress, but you know what I mean :P

  35. ad

    Nahh Trent, she’s just trying to show off her tattoos, of course!
    who would wanna get tattoos and hide them all thier lives?
    :)

  36. Christy

    The dress is fug.Why don’t she just go away and raise her village

  37. orangellama

    Well, Celine is less of the visionary since the Smoking she wore was designed to be worn backwards by John Galliano for the spring/summer Dior collection of 1999. It wasn’t Celine’s idea.

  38. i don’t get it. of all the amazing gorgeous dresses practically (or literally) thrown at celebrities. why can’t they wear something beautiful and unique? this dress is just butt ugly – from the front, from the back, from the side…

  39. Simpson

    LOL@all the fat cows leaving negative comments about Angie. Probably had your husbands leave you for a much prettier woman like Brad did STFU and GTFO.

  40. L.P

    I think her dress looks a lot better backwards!! I’m not a huge fan of it worn properly, but backwards isn’t bad…

  41. Smoking hot, I could not care less if her clothes are on backwards. Does not change the fact she is stunningly beautiful and attractive. Her personality is amazing as well.

    Love me some Jolie!

  42. Samantha

    I don’t like Angelina and I have no idea if she did it on purpose or not, but I think it looks way better backwards.

  43. tatiana

    I hated that dress anyway. Forwards and backwards.

  44. The MAX AZRIA garment can actually be worn both ways that is the uniqueness of it. She is an Urban Muse.

  45. Christina

    I think she is either preggs and trying to hide it or she hasn’t worked off her previous baby bump (not that I can blame her, its hard!) Either way it looked horrible.

  46. :O

    of course she did it on purpose. it looks uglier worn the right way, she probably does not wanna show her cleavage. anyway, i dont think she’s scary skinny. i think her body’s just that way. i mean when she was pregnant only her tummy and boobs and hips got bigger. her arms have always been ‘scary skinny’. i dont think she’s unhealthy, i think that’s just her build.

  47. rossy

    SO WHAT?! Angie’s NOT the first to do something different to a designer gown/dress… A lot of runway clothes (to me) look like they’re worn backwards & yet they’re thousands of dollars & purchased!
    -
    While Diana, Princess of Wales was still married to Charles, she was well known for altering her clothes & jewelery. Example: a diamond & emerald choker meant to be worn around the neck was converted to a headband; she also wore real gems with costume jewelery. She was her OWN person with her OWN style rather than a follower of a trend-pack mentality: Everybody do what I do! Read about it here…

    Angie’s not a follower… others seem to follow HER.

  48. Heather

    I was watching E last night and Max Azria released a statement saying the dress is actually reversible. I think it looks great on her!

  49. Hmmmmmmmm

    Stupid Woman looks like here head is on backwards Lol

  50. nae

    i think it looks fantastic on her – she can pull it off. celine on the otherhand…..i had forgotten about her doing that – funny shit!

  51. LadyVA

    The dress looked way better backwards so good move Angie.

  52. Julie

    I’m a HUGE Angelina fan, and honestly -
    she made it work. That’s what makes her so awesome [:

  53. Panti Christ

    I like it better backwards! I’d rather see Angie’s tattoos than her cleavage anyhow!

  54. haha

    rofl @ all the butthurt sows

    go cry into your gallon of hagan das you lazy pigs
    you’ll never look a fraction as good as she does!

    whine all you want online, shes rich/hot/famous
