Angelina Jolie´s Mixed Gothic and Glamour style In The ’90s
When it comes to ’90s fashion icons, no one compares with Angelina Jolie.
These days, Jolie may prefer her clothing understated and elegant to correspond with her position as an acclaimed director and humanitarian, but in the early days of her career, she embraced her inner bad girl.
Sure, she could slink onto a red carpet in a bejeweled slip dress like her Gen X contemporaries, but Jolie was often at her best in jeans and a ripped T-shirt that let her tattoos and famous pout take center stage.
Credited with going goth at big events before it became the norm—her leather maxi coat at the premiere of Playing God in 1997 could have come directly from the Fall 2019 runways—Jolie laid the foundations for what would eventually become her signature look. The vibe may have changed over the years, but her love of neutral colors, minimalist design, and statement-making body art remain constants. It would be easy to imagine the actress pulling the cream beaded Randolph Duke she wore to pick up a Golden Globe in 1999 out of the back of her closet today and looking just as fresh as she did two decades prior.
Below, we revisit the times when she perfectly mixed gothic with Hollywood glamour back in the ’90s.
