Angelina's SAG Awards Potato Sack Dress


Okay, this couldn't wait until our "official" Glamorate tomorrow. Angelina Jolie came to the Screen Actors' Guild Awards dressed in a brown and putty sack, plain and simple. Sure, she has the best accessory (Brad Pitt), but come on!

Marilyn Monroe may have looked good in a potato sack,* but she didn't wear it to the red carpet. I don't care if it was vintage Hermès, it was ugly.

Naturally, this has tongues wagging that Angie is pregnant with twins. I wouldn't be surprised — Tony Soprano could have hid under that dress, and we wouldn't have known it. What's your take?


* In 1951, Zsa Zsa Gabor publicly denounced Marilyn as a vulgar dresser, in response to which 20th Century Fox released publicity photos of Marilyn in an Idaho Potato sack, with the caption: "Idaho farmers think Marilyn looks good, even in a potato sack."

Oh my! My dog Henry pooped out something that looked very similar the other day. I rushed him to the doctor.

Did you see Sandra Oh's boob bow dress? Very similar to the 1981 YSL. Thought of you immediately :)

She's totally preggers. Who did the dress by the way? Was it Prada?

Zsa Zsa don't know shee-yet. Marilyn oozed glamour. Who could forget the dress and fur stole she wore when she sang "Happy Birthday" to JFK?

No, it was vintage Herm├Ęs.

The dress is awful. She must be exchanging pregnancy fashion tips with Jennifer Lopez.

You are so right, Mrs. X -- there's another offender. They should take a look at Cate Blanchett and Halle Berry who both look stunning pregnant. Weight or baby, mumus are never the way to go on the red carpet.

She had been doing so well lately! Very disappointing.

Her boobs do look a bit bigger than normal - and her arms have filled out. Maybe she is preggers, but even JLo "hid" it better (or at least looked better)!! Her hair and make-up were well done, but the dress was UGLY.

Oh dear, oh dear...

i actually really like her dress. i must be the only one! i think it's pretty and the colors are lovely.

i agree, though, she's probably pregs....

Now I know what women wear when they want to look HORRIBLE. Angelina just proved a long held theory of mine; "Fashion does not make a beautiful woman but bad fashion can make a beautiful woman look horrid."

I love A&B but, good God who let her wear that out of the house? I agree - totally horrible!!

Shemah said...

Vintage Hermes?? Ohhhh-kayyyy... Pea in a Pod would have been a better bet than that!

Plus, not only was the dress horrendous, Brad kept stepping on it.. Saw her almost trip once on the red carpet. Ugly AND dangerous for someone preggers.

Love her. Hate the dress.

I'll have to disagree on Cate Blanchett. Her dress was even worse than this. Halle Berry and new mama Nicole Richie need to take these ladies shopping.
