daily style: the eternal showdown...

|
By Roberta Correia · August 18, 2010

Ok, ok, yet another long absence, yet another long list of excuses, none of which I'll bore you with. Instead, I'll just offer you a showdown of epic proportions to make amends. A fashion face-off between Angelina and Jen is like the eternal struggle between good and evil, Darth Vader/Luke Skywalker, Jack/Locke, Danny Zuko and that dude he races in Thunder Road, Brenda and Kelly if you will. The former and current Mrs. Pitts both premiered movies on the same day this week. Angie with Salt in London and Jen with The Switch in LALA land. While Saint Angelina went for flowy, ethereal goddess - a very big change for the generally black clad Jolie - in silver Amanda Wakeley; girl next door Jen was showing off her  yoga'd physique in a two toned Lanvin.

Jen plays it nice and safe as per usual, going for universally flattering shapes and neutral tones - not to say the dress isn't lovely, she just looks like usual straight haired Rachel Greene. Like I said, playing it safe, she looks nice but nothing special.

Angie is for once channeling angelic sainthood. Now don't get me wrong, I love dominatrix Angie as much as the next gal, but seeing her looking so mother earth-like is just appropriate isn't it? A few gripes: Unlike Jen's figure hugging number, Angelina's is a big shapeless glittery sack. Not that I don't love that, but i wish it had been better tailored for her figure. Also, and this has been bothering me for months, there's something about that hair which is making me completely nuts - I think it might be how the bangs curl just slightly under, very 1980s, very old ladyish. Then again, where Jen sticks with her modern signature sleek do, Angelina always likes to do something that looks sophisticated, for a 70 year old. Get a straightening iron girl.

What do you guys think? Team Jolie or Team Aniston? Eh, at least Brad has a type - a slightly boring red carpet walker. Sidenote, I really want to see The Switch, well just because I have an eternal love of Michael Blooth.

Not that I wasn't beyond thrilled to see Brangie on the red carpet last night for the premiere of Salt, but something about this whole promo tour really has me irked. Mainly the fact that there was no promo tour. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Angelina Jolie's "Salt" promotional tour wardrobe. Not much to work with now is it? A few weeks ago she started out posing at a photocall in Mexico wearing a gorgeous white Versace strapless mini dress. And now, many moons later we get the second installment of Angie's Salt wardrobe - a black strapless sequined Emporio Armani mini dress.

Again, don't get me wrong, it's always nice to see the saintly couple strolling down that red carpet like they are Hollywood royalty - but I was disappointed. I expected more from our drop dead Angie - especially considering this is all we've gotten so far, and our Angie red carpet sightings are few and far between. Even Kristen Stewart gave us at least 10 pretty dresses to look at promoting Eclipse. Does this mean Salt's not being all that promoted because it isn't all that good? Because that would be disappointing too.

Thoughts on Angie's Salt style, or lack thereof?

best of the best 2009...diane kruger...

No one quite made me go "sigh" in 2009 like Diane Kruger. And it wasn't just because a certain Pacey Whitter accompanied her on most red carpets. Ms. Kruger continued to make a name for herself as a constant red carpet do in throughout the year. Kruger's Inglorious Basterds promotional tour looks not only showed off some of the greatest designers fashion has to offer but managed to even outshine the great Angelina.

Doesn't hurt that the German born beauty had arm candy like Josh Jackson and Brad Pitt by her side throughout the year. But Diane managed to carry herself with the utmost class even while rocking some of the edgiest looks that had graced the runway. Modern, rocker, fashion forward, bohemian, romantic and classic - all words that could be attributed to Diane's 2009 style. In our book that makes her a grand winner amongst the style set. After all who doesn't like to change things up a little and play around with different styles! More Diane and Josh in 2010!

Disclaimer: while Diane's perfect red carpet looks were many - Marchesa, Chanel, Versace, Louis Vuitton, Lanvin, Jason Wu, Miu Miu to name just a few - it was virtually impossible to break it down to just a few so please forgive me if one of your favorites has gone missing.

Daily Style: I love those cupcakes like McAdams loves a plunging neckline...

As far as I am concerned Rachel McAdams has never looked more sophisticated than she did at last night's NYC premiere of The Time Traveler's Wife (which by the way I can't wait to see!).

Sure she's channeling J.Lo in that VMA Versace dress from back in the glory days of J.Lo/Puffy, but she makes the risqué look feel chic. Maybe it's the side draping on her long sleeved Pucci dress, maybe it's the light color, or the short hair and elegant make up, or the H.Stern jewelry she paired with it, or the fact that she chose not to wear a necklace and let the plunge speak for itself.

No matter which of those many facets of the former half of McGosling's look is making it work, the only thing that matters is that it works. 

But of course she did have Eric Bana and Brad Pitt to impress on that red carpet, I would have pulled out all the stops too. 

Daily Style: In-In-In, Inglorious...

Now this is the Angelina Jolie we all know, and have a love/hate relationship with. Ms. Jolie showed up to support partner Brad Pitt, and hopefully squash those rumors of bad blood between them, at the LA premiere of Inglorious Basterds wearing a strapless black leather Michael Kors dress, with heels and jewelry by Dior. I don't know about you, but I like my Angelina black leather clad and dangerous. All she needs now is a vial of Brad's blood around her neck and we're good to go. Note to Jennifer Aniston's sweet French Braided February Oscar appearance, this is how you say "screw you world I'm the baddest bitch there ever was with or without Brad Pitt." 

More from the Inglorious Basterds premiere, aka Diane Kruger, after the jump...

more, more, more...

uh oh...i'm in a world of trouble.

i'm about to take on one of the world's most feared groups. 

Dear Brangeloonies,

My apologies but i'm not 100% sure about the Max Azria dress that Angelina wore to the SAG Awards last night. 

I love the color and the back (something cool about her tattoos peaking through), and while I think she's absolutely the most beautiful woman ever, the dress is so unflattering from the front. 

It looks a bit like she borrowed a dress from Mrs. Roeper. I'm sorry, so sorry to say this. But she could do better and more age appropriate, especially with the hair. 

Please accept my apologies for any offenses done. 

My best, 

It's Only Fashion

It's a walk off... it's a walk off...

HOLY STRAPLESS DRESSES BATMAN!!! 

Angelina Jolie glowingly stepped back into the limelight after the birth of her twins looking absolutely 100% perfect (seriously it's just not ok) in a black strapless Versace dress at the premiere of her new movie "The Changeling." I honestly have no words about how just insanely gorgeous these two are - it's unfair to the rest of humanity... ok yes you can call me a Brangeloonie...

Around the same time Mariah Carey (yo Mariah, you on fire...sorry couldn't help it) visited the Bank nightclub at the Bellagio in the same sweetheart neckline pairing it with black tights and a casual looking up do. She has been looking amazing these days - reminiscent of her Dreamlover days - but... how can you face off the Mother Superior?

Should I even ask????
