Oscar-winning actress, movie director, UN ambassador, mother and style icon – Angelina Jolie’s jam-packed lifestyle means she needs more than one type of wardrobe. Whether she’s rocking the red carpet or making a powerful speech, wearing a designer gown or a simple grey suit, what’s for sure is that Angelina always looks amazing and nails the dress code to perfection.

So how does she do it? Well, always knowing what the occassion asks for is her key to success. Having access to the world’s most amazing designers also helps!

Of all the things she is famous for, Ange is pretty well known for being a mother. Mum to six adorable kids with the other half of Brangelina, Ms Jolie is always out and about running errands like any normal mum would. From airport arrivals with the entire brood to charity adventures in far-flung countires, she keeps it super simple and classic. Whether it’s jeans, a basic tee and blazer or classic dresses, Ange always looks amazing even on her most dressed-down days.

When it’s time to dress up though, she knows her stuff. As one of the most famous actresses in the world, Ange has had to rock up to more than a few premieres in her time. Starting out her red-carpet life as a serious gothic vixen, Ms Jolie has grown into more classic looks, favouring designers like Elie Saab and Versace, and relaxed styles that will never date. We can’t think of a time when she hasn’t landed on a best-dressed list at an award show in the past decade.

The final part of Ms Jolies (walk-in) wardrobe is her UN-appropriate looks, which provide the ultimate workwear inspiration for the rest of us. Perfectly fitted grey dresses and amazing cream skirt suits make up the perfect ensembles of Angelina. All finished off with a killer pair of courts, of course.
