There’s pretty much a formula for how Angelina Jolie always looks so effortlessly chic and glamorous: on the red carpet, where you’ll likely find her in a strapless dress or with a slit, the actor sticks to a constant list of classics like black dresses and trench coats. That’s exactly what she did when she landed in Paris on Thursday, doing a number of looks while shopping and sightseeing with her children Shiloh, Knox, Pax and Zahara. But this time, Jolie also added a bonus, just trendy enough that you can almost imagine it on Kendall Jenner or Bella Hadid.
Jolie started off with a perfectly Parisian black dress for a visit to the Eiffel Tower. She then swapped it for a belted white, conservatively buttoned all the way to the top, while making an appearance in stores on the Champs-ÃlysÃ©es. (Naturally, the outing included a stop at Guerlain, the famous French cosmetics brand that recently joined Jolie in her effort to save the bees.) Store, nothing less – wearing a white t-shirt and a Louis Vuitton mini bag, whose size is reminiscent of a nostalgic 2000s trend for clutch shoulder bags.
Perhaps most noticeable, however, were her beige wide-legged Chloe pants, the same silhouette and color combination that keeps coming back to trendsetters like Jenner and Hadid. A visit to the Banksy exhibit on display at Espace Lafayette Drouot turned out to be part of a matching corduroy-style linen ensemble, a sophisticated take on the beige corduroy look that Hadid memorably wore earlier this year. .
If Friday’s release is any indication, Jolie may have found a new staple. She was seen outside her hotel, another pair of wide beige pants, this time worn with a trench coat. Meanwhile, her daughter Zahara is experimenting with a trend you wouldn’t expect to see Jolie anytime soon: the bob.
