- Angelina Jolie’s “Eternals” red carpet style has been iconic.
- But the A-lister has had some of the best red carpet looks since the ’90s.
- Here are 30 of Jolie’s most daring looks, from plunging necklines to hip-high slits.
Wearing a leather trench-coat dress, Jolie channeled Trinity from “The Matrix” in October 2017 — a full two years before the film was released.
For comparison, here’s what Trinity looks like — all Jolie needs is a pair of tiny sunglasses and she’s good to go.
At the Emmys in September 1998, Jolie wore a beige dress with sheer paneling and an exposed studded bra.
Jolie was a double nominee that year — she was nominated for her work in the TV movie “Gia” and the miniseries “George Wallace.”
For the 1999 Golden Globes in January, Jolie wore a skintight silver gown encrusted with jewels.
Famously, Jolie said that if she won a Globe, she’d jump in the pool after — and when she secured the win for “Gia,”she did exactly that, pulling an “Access Hollywood” producer in with her.
At the premiere of “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider” in June 2001, Jolie wore low-rise leather pants that showed off her tattoos.
The tattoo on her lower abdomen says “Quod Me Nutrit Me Destruit,” which is a Latin phrase that means “What nourishes me, destroys me.”
Jolie wore this almost entirely backless black gown at the premiere of the “Tomb Raider” sequel in July 2003.
Black is a color that Jolie returns to time and time again.
For another “Tomb Raider: Cradle of Life” premiere in August 2003, the star chose a black halter dress with a plunging neckline and slit.
Jolie didn’t pair any accessories with the look, letting the dress speak for itself.
Jolie wore this silk sage green dress with an even higher slit for the premiere of “Beyond Borders” in October 2003.
Her strappy green heels matched perfectly.
At the 2004 Academy Awards, she channeled Old Hollywood glam and Marilyn Monroe in this low-cut white satin gown.
This has been cited as one of the best Oscars looks of all time, and the Marc Bouwer dress even has its own Wikipedia page.
“Angie’s one of very few people who can rock this material and this color — both being mercilessly unforgiving. But the dress drapes on her curves and shows off her assets in all the right ways,” Cosmopolitan wrote in 2011.
Jolie’s slits keep getting higher and higher — this sparkly skirt had a slit that went all the way to her hip.
She stood with legendary producer Quincy Jones at this May 2004 event.
Jolie leaned into her animal instincts at the September 2004 premiere of “Shark Tale,” wearing a leopard-print trench coat.
She paired the coat with equally bold red pumps.
Jolie returned to the all-leather look with this halter gown for the premiere of “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” in June 2005.
Once again, she chose a gown with a thigh-high slit and low neckline.
The next year, in November 2006, Jolie donned a sparkling black backless gown with a satin bow.
The dress featured a sheer hem, as well.
At the 2009 Cannes Film Festival, Jolie walked the red carpet in this gauzy beige gown with yet another hip-high slit.
The chiffon gown was designed by Versace.
The slit in her dress at the Japanese premiere of “Salt” in July 2010 was just as daring.
The black gown featured a high neck and was almost entirely backless.
