We all know how Angelina Jolie loves (and we mean that with a capital L) to wear pieces from Saint Laurent, so imagine our surprise when the A-lister attended the 2014 Academy Awards (with her hubby-to-be, Brad Pitt) yesterday in a creation that was not from the French fashion house. She also paired the frock with shoes from another label.

But then again, maybe we shouldn’t be shocked. After all, Angie has never worn Saint Laurent to any of the Oscars she has previously attended. In 2004, she slipped into an icy white Marc Bouwer gown. For her 2009 appearance, she wore a strapless number from Elie Saab. And who can forget the leg she exposed in that black velvet number from Versace back in 2012?
The changing Oscar looks of Angelina Jolie
For yesterday’s high-profile occasion, the star slipped into a silvery piece from Elie Saab, which was exquisitely beaded to the hilt. The dress was also sheer, but only in the right places. In fact, it even flaunted her well-reconstructed bosom (she had double mastectomy last year). She finished the frock with dazzling 42-karat diamond drop earrings and smokey-eye makeup to match. Simply put, Angie looked like a queen last evening — elegant, regal, and flawless.

Do you like Angie’s Oscar look, or do you find the gown underwhelming? We can’t say it was her best, but she still looked amazing. Besides, aren’t you just glad that she didn’t walk the red carpet in another black gown?
Now, on to the shoes. The star slipped into a pair of Ferragamo pumps for the night. We don’t have the full details on her shoes yet, but judging from the closeup shots below, we think she wore satin-wrapped peep-toe heels in either silver or champagne. Interestingly, Angie’s pair did not come with the label’s signature bow details, so we have a feeling that her shoes were custom-made for her. What do you think?

For reference, below is a similar style from Ferragamo — the “Pianka,” which is bow-detailed at the open toes and features 4-inch-tall heels. With 0.75-inch-thick platforms, it would be easy to walk in them. If you’re interested, you can score a pair in your size at Nordstrom or Bloomingdales. They retail at $650.
By the way, in case you missed the awards show, Brad’s movie (which he also co-produced), 12 Years a Slave, won Best Picture last night. It was also recognized as Best Feature at the 2014 Independent Spirit Awards held the other day. So, you could say that Angelina’s partner is a happy man right now.
