The black gown Angelina Jolie wore to the Oscars® — you know, the one that inspired the pose that in turn sparked a parody Twitter account — may have cost the actress’ stylist her job. The U.K.’s Closer magazine spoke with an insider who said Jolie is furious over the ridicule she’s gotten since the Academy Awards® and places the blame on her stylist Jen Rade.
“Angelina is horrified at the reaction her Oscars dress received,” said the insider. “She pays her stylist Jen a lot of money to pick things that will make her look drop-dead gorgeous, but she felt the dress swallowed her up and she had to stick her leg [out], or it looked like she was wearing a bin bag. Now she’s being laughed at when she’s worked so hard on her look. She feels like a joke and is worried her reputation may have taken a hit.”
While we think Angelina Jolie’s A-list reputation is unlikely to suffer, she’ll probably have to endure a bit more good-natured ribbing before the buzz over her right leg dies down. After all, this is the closest we’ve gotten to a Jolie miscue in years. What do you think — should Jolie fire her stylist?
