(Angelina’s always done the leg thing, hasn’t she?)
Immediately after every major awards ceremony, The Fashion Police are always inundated with press releases from brand’s claiming that their dresses are exactly like the ones just seen on the red carpet, and will therefore allow us to “get the look” of the stars.
We’re always a little puzzled by these messages: not just because the dresses in question almost never do look even remotely like the ones they’re claiming to be inspired by, but because, seriously: how many of you really NEED to look like you’re going to the Oscars on a regular basis? Not that many, we bet. Because Oscar dresses are really only appropriate for, well, The Oscars. And, we guess, other extremely dressy occasions, the likes of which you don’t really come across too often, unless you’re one of those high society girls who’s always going to balls.
Still, people DO go to balls, and to other black tie events, and if you’re one of those people, you may well be thinking to yourself, “Gosh, I wish I could dress just like Angelina Jolie for my event!” Well, now you can: the two dresses shown above are replicas of Angie’s Golden Globes dress from earlier this year, but they’ll cost you a whole lot less. They’re made by The Pretty Dress Company (which is a Fashion Police favourite, we’ll have you know) and the full-length gown is £110, while the shorter version is just £89.
These aren’t in stock just yet, so if you want to buy one, you’ll need to keep an eye on the company’s website. You can practice pouting and thrusting your leg out while you wait.
