Angelina Jolie, as a teenager at Beverly Hills High School, faced bullying due to her full lips. Her braces and glasses did not help the situation either, and she was also made fun of for being too skinny. Jolie shared with Harper’s Bazaar in November 2019 that during her early 20s, she identified as a punk who loved wearing leather, PVC, and fishnets, with PVC pants being a standout memory.

Angelina Jolie was spotted outside her Paris hotel wearing a stylish Dior trench coat and carrying a Celine Horizontal Cabas bag with Triomphe embroidery on July 23, 2021. In an interview, Jolie reminisced about a failed audition in Los Angeles where her pants had fused together due to the scorching sun, but she loved them nonetheless and wore a similar pair to her wedding with Jonny Lee Miller. According to family friend Cis Rundle, who cared for Jolie during her teenage years, the actress had a difficult time battling anorexia, which earned her the nickname “Ubangi Lips.” Rundle recalled that Jolie was drawn to the “edge” and even enjoyed the sensation of pain, including dipping her fingers in wax. She became a caretaker for Jolie after her parents separated in 1976.

According to Cis Rundle, Angelina Jolie’s former babysitter, she had carried the actress into the hospital during her anorexic stage which eventually got worked out. Marcheline, Jolie’s mother, had gotten scared that she wasn’t eating. In addition, Jolie was bullied by her fellow students at Beverly Hills High, who made fun of her lips and were mean to her. However, Rundle described Jolie to have broad shoulders and long legs with a graceful and agile movement like a gazelle.

Jolie, who is known for her roles in films such as Original Sin, has experienced bullying during her high school years and was reported to have been struggling with anorexia, a common eating disorder. In January of 2012, Jolie made appearances at the 2012 Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala wearing a nude gown and matching Jimmy Choos, and at the American Cinematheque’s Foreign-Language Nominee Series in Hollywood, where she opted for a pair of simple Pour La Victoire pumps.

I admire Angelina Jolie’s elegant and understated style, but I feel that she could experiment more with her footwear choices. It would be refreshing to see her add a pop of color or some playful details to her shoes instead of always opting for plain and unremarkable designs. Bring on the sass, Angelina!

Angelina Jolie was spotted donning some stylish earrings with her softly tousled hair in a recent event. Although the actress looked chic in an all-black outfit paired with Pour La Victoire pumps, the ensemble lacked excitement, and it may even induce a yawn. Similarly, in another instance, Angelina wore a mundane pleated jumpsuit from Elie Saab’s Spring-Summer 2011 collection, which she paired with unremarkable Jimmy Choo “Quiet” peep-toe pumps in nude.

Although Angelina Jolie’s Elie Saab Spring-Summer 2011 pleated jumpsuit looks light and airy, exuding a subtle charm, I find her choice of shoes to be quite unexciting.

Take a closer look at the not-so-exciting Pour La Victoire heels that Angelina Jolie wore to the 23rd annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala in January 2012. These are the Pour La Victoire “Daina” pointed platform pumps, which retail for $113.99.

I think it would be great if Angelina spiced up her shoe game with some more vibrant options. Even though I know the event she attended was a formal affair, she could still mix things up occasionally by rocking a sleek but striking heel such as the Jimmy Choo Red Quiet Patent Leather Pumps.

Hey, my fellow shoe aficionados, what’s your take on Angelina’s footwear selections? Do you think they’re dull, or do they complement her ensemble?
