What Will Angelina Jolie Be Wearing on New Year's Eve?

12/29/2006 at 06:00 AM ET

When Angelina Jolie ushers in the New Year (presumably at one of the world’s exotic hot spots), she could well be wearing a Karanina convertible halter dress (on sale now for $173 from $345 on Girlshop.com). We hear that she recently scooped up three of them — including a reversible black and champagne version. This multi-tasking silk jersey dress has a extra-long halter tie that allows you to wear it in at least five ways — ten ways if you buy the reversible one! Fashionista translation: you can don the same dress to a few of your holiday parties and look a little different each time. No wonder celebs such as Scarlett Johannson, Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Simpson also keep this handy little number in their closets. Now the only question is: What are you wearing on New Year’s Eve?

To Julia above:

The dress is not sold out. It is still avail in 10,8,6,4, and 0 (size zero).

Post from a Ph.D. on the topic:

As a Dr (Ph.D.) (sorry, that’s not meant to be an ego-boost – just to provide context) working in International Development (overseas aid work as well as long term policy) with family members working in the UN (including UNHCR) – Angelina Jolie (& Brad Pitt) have interested/amused/annoyed me for some time. While I think it is good that she does some thing to help as an ambassador – this ‘work’ should be seen as it is (and certainly as it is recognized as within the UN) – which is as media/PR and not anything more. The reality is that many, MANY people work tirelessly (long hours, and often on mediocre pay) for the international organizations (UN, Red Cross, Save the Children, Care, etc.) and as these jobs are both difficult to obtain and complex – the average person will be expected to be highly educated (a Masters as a matter of course). The reality therefore, is that the research and actual work on the ground regarding issues to do with poverty, conflict, vulnerability, refugees (etc) IS done by researchers, doctors, engineers, aid workers, and other professionals who have, in my experience, worked many years to achieve that level of understanding and commitment to these extremely complex issues. Angelina receives FAR too many accolades for what is purely PR – and indeed, I too find it odd that she calls handing out gifts ‘work’. While, I think what she is doing is undoubtedly better than nothing at all, the level of accolades are out of all proportion to what she does in actuality. Moreover, the reality is that she DID pose with Brad P. in a 60(???) page ‘W’ spread – before his divorce was finalized…and that AJ married Billy Bob Thornton while he was STILL engaged to Laura Dern (impressive memory of pop culture hey ;). I think US magazines should do a piece on UNHCR work which displays what is ACTUALLY done by actual professionals in the field. I also think US mags could perhaps explore the way in which adoption by ‘movie stars’ can be done with impunity (AJ and BP were not married when they adopted Zahara, & she was a single parent when she adopted Maddox (with only a brief stay in Cambodia). Brad Pitt’s behavior has been questionable at best – he did not act with responsibility towards his wife (at the time) by engaging in a sexualized photo shoot etc.

I think you’re right!! People puts these topics up here and the women on here just fight and are really mean to one another!! I NEVER chastise someone for the opinion, but Oh MY GOD, the stuff women tell me just cause I have an OPINION and they happen to disagree!!!

Uuuuummm, why do people always comment when a celebrity wants to help people in another country. If people can’t help themselves in America then they’re pathetic. America offers more assistance to their poor then any other country in the world. It is the land of milk and honey and if you’re poor you can just get on the free for all welfare system we have here. Good for celebrities that see farther then their own back yard. The world needs help, not just this selfish country. You people who comment on thier adoptive children and their relationship are pathetic. You make out like you live a perfect life. Why don’t you leave the judging to God.

I think Angelina would look absolutely beautiful in that dress. I would kill to look half as good as she does. She can make a garbage bag look sexy for Christ’s sake! As for all of you “Brangelina” haters out there complaining about the numerous reportings of her and Brad’s humantitarian work, seriously, just shut up. While you stay at home and party on new year’s, with your uncultured children oblivious to everything that’s going on in the world, Brad and Angie will be out there helping people. Yeah they may live like “nomads”, but at least her and her children are learning about different cultures, different ways of life then most children will ever know. I can’t think of more nobler people than Angelina and Brad. Oh and I’m wearing jeans and a sweater for new years. ;)
