Angelina Jolie may have her hands full caring for her newborn twins and four other children, but she still finds time for another passion — fashion! Jen Rade, Jolie’s longtime stylist, told PEOPLE at W‘s New York Affair this week that despite Angie’s large brood, it’s not hard to get the mother-of-six on the phone to discuss her sartorial options. “No, [it’s not tough], but she’s definitely got a lot going on. Any time you talk to her there’s a lot of kids in the background, that’s for sure.” Rade is working with Jolie to dress her for the Changeling junket later this month, as well as the film’s premiere October 4th. “It’ll be her first big US appearance since having the babies,” Rade says. “I feel some pressure, but I think I can do it. We’ve been doing it for five years together.” Is it a challenge finding clothes that work for Jolie’s post-pregnancy body? “Not really. She’s breastfeeding so the boobs are bigger, but no. It’s going to be fun. I’m looking forward to it.” Rade describes Jolie’s style as “kind of classic with a rock and roll edge” and says she loves working with Angelina because “she’s funny and smart.” Plus, she’s a fab mom: “She loves it — or else she wouldn’t do it.” — Reporting by Kathy Ehrich Dowd.

Changeling Trailer Debuts on

[…] nailed the crazy thing in both Gia and Girl, Interrupted for which she won her first Oscar.  Jolie will appear at the premiere and junket, causing a stir.  Jolie’s level of celebrity is always a bit of […]

First off, I have no real opinion on the personal lives of celebrities AS I DON’T KNOW THEM AND THERE IS NO TELLING IF WHAT IS BEING PUBLISHED ABOUT THEM IS TRUE OR JUST SENSATIONAL. Some of you act like you actually KNOW these people. You can admire their style, but before you waste your time commenting on the lives of people you know nothing about you might want to GET A LIFE.

This woman is truly a nut case…people love her style???? come on what style She has OTHER people pick out her clothes for her….She has no style…what don’t you all get about that!! A great mother…..give me a about the single mom with 3 kids working 2 jobs…now that’s a great mother!!

kim on

Hassosehr…what is she dishonest about you moron!!!!

kim on

all of you are haters…..jealous, jealous, jealous..Brad and Jen were having problems way before Angie came around! You wish you had her life!!!!

No on

It’s so creepy how some of these die hard fans are jumping the bit to see her again. Very odd. What’s worse is that some people call her the best mother around with the cutest kids. tht must make their own children feel real great. Please…

To Kim on

Yeah Kim, good argument… You call people “haters” and jealous. What are you 15? Grow up idiot.

Tired of angie fans bringing up Jen on

Notice how it’s usually the Angelina fans who constantly bring up excuses as to why Brad left Jen. I wish they’d all stop bringing up Jen and let that go already. Why is it nevessary to talk about her if they have been divored for a while now. Move on if you LOVE this creepy “perfect” family so much.

Also to the people who say, “If you don’t like Angie, why do you come here and post.” Most likely because they are entitled to post an opinion just like the freak Angie fans are. The same question can be asked for Angie fans who pick on Jen nonstop and make excuses about why Brad cheated on her. It’s not an “I love Angie” fan only board so suck it up and get used to the fact that some people don’t like her.

To Nenete's post on

There are a lot of other people out there who “single handedly” save less fortunate children from bad situations.

You actlike Angelina is the first person to ever adopt or help a child in need. She’s not exactly super mom. There are other hard working mothers out there.

It’s sad that Angie seems to get recognition for working hard when she’s never been a less fortunate mom who had to work two or three jobs to get food on the table for her kids. That’s wokring hard, not going off to make millions while your nanny keeps your kids all week while your off smiling for cameras and bragging about how you save people.

And really Nanete, if you’re a grown woman using the word “hater” shame on you…


She looks great always..
