Angelina Jolie is on the cover of Vogue’s December 2010 issue, striking a sultry pose, tattoos visible, in a shot photographed by Mario Testino. Inside the magazine, Jolie opens up to Vicki Woods—who is mesmerized by the actresses’ beauty—about, among other things, her personal style.
She is wearing a little cropped jacket by Neil Barrett, who dresses haute Hollywood, classic pants by Helmut Lang, and Ferragamo flats. Black, black, and black. “As Brad’ll tell you—and my kids—apparently Mommy only wears black,” she says. Because she was a Goth, right? No, she says, it’s utilitarian, it’s practical: “I like to get up so every pair of pants goes with every top, every dress goes with every shoe. I’ve a very tiny closet. Brad’s always laughing at me. Some days, yes, I have the nightgown that looks like a dress that I can sleep in and pick the kids up at school. And maybe take a meeting if I switch into heels.
What else will you find inside? Notes on cooking for six kids, thoughts on Brad Pitt’s looks, and observations on her globe-trotting family. Plus, a portrait session in which Jolie wears a Colleen Atwood custom corset with lace trim (Jolie’s own), a Club Monaco cashmere cardigan, an Yves Saint Laurent satin tuxedo jacket, a fuchsia Carolina Herrera satin evening dress, and a Michael Kors cashmere sweater.
