I don’t know anymore.
The dress is empirically pretty (and Brad has taken pains to try and reboot himself to Ocean’s Eleven levels of Pittness). She doesn’t NOT look pretty in it. Yet I so rarely feel like Angelina is a part of things. She might be one you have to see in motion, perhaps, if if you know what I mean? Standing still, there’s a disconnect. She feels unplugged– from the clothes, from the scene, all of it. I almost wish she’d just mess up her hair a bit and throw on a red lip and a perfectly tailored suit. Either something tux-like, or just in a funky fabric. Something that recaptures a little bit of that old biker essence, the one that gave her that spark that was so hard to ignore.
