Angelina Jolie might be one of modern cinema’s most iconic vixens, but when creating her look for the new movie The Tourist, her costume designer looked to classic film noir glamour. “My inspiration for [Jolie’s character] Elise’s costumes were the Hitchcock movies: minimal elegance,” Academy Award-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood, who worked on the thriller, tells PEOPLE. In one scene, Jolie’s character dashes off to a ball in Venice, Italy, wearing a glamorous, flowing black gown topped off with a diamond-studded choker (below). “The black gown was designed to evoke the grand life, and to frame Angelina Jolie’s beauty,” Atwood explains. “The necklace was created by Robert Procop from an antique tiara, and [the diamonds were] definitely real!” Another eye-catching number from the film, an ivory sheath accented with a camel shawl and gloves (above), had a royal lineage as well. “That look was inspired by a dress designed by Irene [Lentz], who is a legendary costume designer,” Atwood says. “I took the basic idea and added some flair to contemporize it. The original had a jacket, but I really wanted something a little more luxurious, so I created the cashmere wrap. I’ve always loved a glove, and was filming in the land of fine gloves, so I used a fine suede glove to finish the look.” –Sara Hammel

(For you haters, her 3 children are not illegitimate, they are ADOPTED!) YES – 3 are adopted but she has 3 other children that are Brad’s and hers and if you look up in the dictionary their 3 children are
illegitimate. Everyone has a right to their own opinion and I don’t like her, never will, she is skinny and has HUGE lips. I will NEVER see one of her movies and promote her behavior.

How do you get the mascara and eyeliner to stay in place all day? I buy waterproof expensive eyeliner and mascara, but it still smears under my eyes after a couple of hours.

Illegitimate children is a term that does not exist. children whether their parents are married or not, are not longer labeled as such.
If you don’t like Angelina, that’s fine, her private life is certainly none of your business. Judge her as an actress, that is the only right that you have.
