Though she’s since gone full on power mom on us, there was a time when Angelina Jolie exuded more couldn’t-give-a-fuck than normally so beautifully possible. Lips like that lend themselves to purse-lipped half smiles, carelessly bare midriffs, tats galore, and black on black on black.
With Maleficent out in theaters today, there’s no better time to look back on some of Brangelina’s better half’s best style moments. Enjoy.

Here’s your first look at Angelina Jolie in the role she was born to play: as Maleficent, the classic villainess from Disney’s Sleeping Beauty. This time, however, the evil queen plays the titular character in an upcoming film, which focuses more on the dark nature of the queen rather than the sweet, beautiful Aurora. But, most importantly, Jolie dons the horns and the goth look for the role. Take a look after the jump!
In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Jolie sheds some light on her dark character and how the film will portray her in an entirely new way:
I hope in the end you see a woman who is capable of being many things, and just because she protects herself and is aggressive, it doesn’t mean she can’t have other [warmer] qualities. You have to figure out the puzzle of what she is… It sounds really crazy to say that there will be something that’s good for young girls in this, because it sounds like you’re saying they should be a villain. [Maleficent] is actually a great person. But she’s not perfect. She’s far from perfect.
The film, which co-stars Elle Fanning as Aurora, will be released in 3D (of course) next March. Let’s hope it’s a step up from this year’s dueling Snow White features, both of which opened to lukewarm critical response.
