Angie here looks exhausted. Unbroken is coming out on Christmas Day, and I wonder if she’s been locked away in an edit bay or in a sound mix, or something, trying to get that sucker in ship-shape so that she gets a bunch of award nominations.

The gentleman with her plays Louis Zamperini in the movie, by the way. He looks nice and seems unfazed by having Angelina on his arm, and won a New Hollywood Award, which is interesting given that I don’t know if anyone’s actually SEEN this film yet and I doubt he got it for 300: Rise of an Empire.

ANYHOO: Angie’s dress is so simple that I would’ve guessed it was Calvin Klein. There aren’t nearly enough metal or cutouts for me to have pegged it as Versace — and in fact, it’s custom, so that’s probably why. (But at that point, why would Versace want to custom-make a dress that looks like it’s by someone else? All press is good press, I guess?) Also, the fabric is actually sort of woolen and corporate, like you’d find in a very nice suit, or a CK or maybe even Boss Woman line:

It doesn’t really show in the full shot, which is a shame, because I think the choice of fabric is actually essential to whether you like the dress. Not being able to discern that from the long-shot is like being asked to review a movie without seeing the middle bits.

She IS wearing bracelet, and I DO like the material, but none of that is enough to lend any real zest here. So while I’m not upset with it, necessarily, I do think Angie might need a new stylist, or just a Come to Jesus from her current one to try and get her to take a few more risks. She can wear stuff that’s more cheerful and risky and loud without losing her more-serious-than-thou aura. Perhaps a nap will help clarify things.
