The Inside Scoop on Angelina's Red Carpet Look

We’re accustomed to seeing Angelina Jolie in her usual neutral palette of grays, beiges and blacks, so when she stepped out in a stunning yellow gown for the Ocean’s 13 premiere in Cannes, we just had to know more. Turns out that she started working on it with Emanuel Ungaro’s chief designer Peter Dundas “a little more than a month ago,” an insider tells PEOPLE. Dundas sent her a batch of sketches from which she chose the gown and the color. So no luck for the rest of us in getting one, since “the dress was made especially for her — it’s unique.” But the custom design didn’t end with the gown — Chopard created ten carat yellow diamond earrings and a 20 carat yellow diamond cocktail ring just for her appearance on the red carpet. At least to our impressed eyes, it’s effort well spent!

Angelina is very pretty, but so is Jennifer Aniston. They are both good people, they do their own thing to make the world a better place. They just have a different way of making their efforts known. God Bless both women and their families with a happy and healthy life.

I read all of your comments. For people who are fans of Friends & Jennifer Aniston, your comments are so pity and unfair. I’m not a fan of any shows, actors, or actresses…however, I have some idols, who I look up and try to live my life as those people have lived. Before anyone comments about her expensive dresses & jewelries, don’t you ever share 1/3 of your income to anyone? If Angie can donate 1/3 of her wealth to charity, to help the poor and unfortunate people, she can use her 2/3 left to spend on things she deserves; especially, being an actress, she need those glamorous outfits for those events. About she is planning to have baby with Brad: that’s a very lovely, devoted, unselfish act which only true love can speak of. Remember, how selfish Jen was when Brad wanted to have kids; she only wants to make more money and fame. Her career is more than her love to Brad. Brad & Jen both knew that they would not have a family and would divorce. They already separated and waited for the official divorce paper to finalize. Before criticizing anyone, please ask yourself first: did you ever dream of or have slept with a married man? If you do, please do not be a hypocrite and say bad things to people. In Eastern philosophy that called karma: you’d end up to swallow your own bitter pills someday! For me, I understand Jen’s pain and have my compassion for her, but if she’s really put her family and her love above her career: I think she will not be in this situation today. My advice to Jen: Get over with the pain and start living a more compassionate life to care and think of other before herself. For Angie: you’re beautiful regardless what! However, I’m concerned about your health: you should gain a few more pounds. Remember that your family: your adorable kids and your supportive husband need on you. Besides, you also need to have your health to travel around the world and support other helpless and poor people – victims of war, poverty, and natural disaster… in those countries. I wish you great health, happiness, peace, and joy for the rest of your life.

Mandy on’s too yellow…
I didn’t like this dress ate all!
But I like Angie..she’s perfect!
