Angelina Jolie's Stylist Dishes on Her Post-Baby Style

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.

Brad Pitt is looking so mature and so happy and handsome for the last 4 years.I doubt if he cares for Jennifer Aniston one bit.He’s probably breathing a sigh of relief for getting out of that horrible,boring marriage.Brad and Angie are really soulmates,they love and support each other and they both have common interests and goals in life.Way to go Brangelina!!!!

Miss her on

I read one of her interviews and I became a big fan.What impressed me more was finding out that she started her charity work in her early 20 way before meeting Brad Pitt.She’s an amazing and strong woman and I’ll continue to donate to her charities.I like that she doesn’t let critisism get in the way of her charity work and the way she lives.Keep shining Angelina.

I LOVE YOU ANGELINA JOLIE, always pray for your family. Take care of yourself too.GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY, always. . .

Just stop on that stupidity of her “stealing” someone else husband! No one can “steal” a husband or wife, If they don’t want to be stolen! We are talking about people, not a pet or a object, that can take decisions by themselves! I supose that Brad has something to say about it! I guess he wasn’t sold to his ex-wife, right? Angelina isn’t perfect, because there’s no such a thing: “perfect person”, but she’s better than moust of us! Great Actress, very talented, and a lovely human being!

Wonderful news. Can’t wait to see her and the twins out and about. Angelina you are wonderful and I love your style. Thanks for being such a wonderful person and first of all a mom.

You people are utterly pathetic. This deceitful phony of a tramp is held up in high esteem by this magazine and you idiots for what reason?? She parades around with her brood of ever expanding children neither she nor Brad can care for on their own (merely PR props) along with donating meager sums to charity (another PR prop) which she hails to the world (unbelievably tacky). I can’t wait for the day when the media takes off their gloves and shows the real Angelina – how foolish all you fans will feel then.

She always looks the same to me. I like her style though.

I miss her, she looks fabulous all the time. I’m glad Brad & her are together as a couple & have kids together. Can’t wait to see her with Brad on the red carpet.

Wow! All that vitriol aimed at someone you don’t know. Pray tell, how does a “real mom” act and do you have firsthand knowledge of her lack of parenting skills? If you are going to accuse someone of something, then you should be able to back it up with some proof at the very least. And by proof, I don’t mean “insider sources” from the tabs du jour.

As Angie herself once said, it is not her job to make you comfortable with her life. It is HER life. Do YOU have the public constantly criticizing everything YOU do?

I admire this young woman for being the very essence of GRACE UNDER FIRE these last 3 years. I APPLAUD her for having the STRENGTH OF WILL to follow her convictions, face her demons and come out the other side.

Why are people reading an article or even clicking on an article about Angelina if they don’t even like her and say they don’t care?

If you truly did not care then you would not even bother looking at news about her, that’s what I do with celebs I don’t like.
