12 times Angelina Jolie's nailed timeless Hollywood style on the red carpet

Yahoo Style UK team

Angelina Jolie doesn’t need prints, patterns or even accessories to rule the red carpet.

The Oscar-winning actress, who turns 43 today, manages to top almost every best dressed list with her flawless and remarkably unfussy style.

From feathers to velvet to satin and leather, Angelina experiments with different fabrics but otherwise keeps her on-duty ensembles fairly simple. The mum-of-six is committed to block colours and feminine silhouettes and is rarely seen in a get-up that’s not solely black or white. She’s got her fashion formula nailed and rarely deviates from it.

Angelina Jolie’s style was fairly subversive back in the 90s when she burst onto our screens with ‘Gia’, ‘Hackers’, ‘Girl Interrupted’ and, later, ‘Tomb Raider’. But she’s seamlessly evolved her look over the years, retaining her edge but favouring a far more elegant and classic look.

That’s not to say she shies away from making a red carpet statement. Who could forget *that* thigh-high split Versace gown she wore to the Oscars in 2012?

Combined with that iconic pout and those tumbling waves, Angelina Jolie channels old-school Hollywood style like no other.

Without further ado, we present the actress’ best red carpet moments.
