Angelina Jolie Skipped The 2016 Oscars Red Carpet

by Eliza Florendo

No other person epitomizes a style transformation quite like one particular actor, who went from badass babe in the '90s to totally elegant stunner in the past few years. Angelina Jolie didn't show up to the 2016 Oscars Red Carpet, unfortunately, so we won't be able to see her gorgeous look, but we can sure dream about it.

Though totally rough on the edges, some of my favorite of Jolie's looks live in the '90s, when exposed tattoos, velvet slip dresses, leather skirts, and low-riding trousers reigned supreme in her wardrobe. It's safe to say that her style mantra back then was not giving a single f*ck. And I'm totally cool with that.

But as the years passed, we saw Jolie rock more elegant gowns, simple pantsuits, and plunging necklines. Who can forget her shiny dress at the 2015 Critics' Choice Awards, or her classy cape at the premiere of Unbroken in London. No matter what the premiere, I'm totally falling in love with her ensembles that are not only super appropriate, but equally as gorgeous, too. She just has a way of knowing.

My prediction for what she would've worn tonight? Probably something super baring, yet elegant and chic, and totally appropriate for the evening. But, honestly, no matter what she would've worn, she would have looked incredible. Something backless, perhaps, to show off her new tattoos?

Let's just review some of her most iconic looks on the red carpet so far, shall we?


Who could forget this gorgeous column dress, that showed off her beauty effortlessly and with grace?

This dress' bodice is everything. And as you can see — no matter the occasion, Jolie brings the big (style) guns out, and looks powerful on every carpet she graces with her presence. It's a bummer we didn't get to see her tonight, but we'll just have to fawn over past ones for now.
