The actress and Elie Saab are truly a fashionable force to be reckoned with.

With his fairytale-worthy gowns, ethereal use of fabric, and shimmering embellishments, Elie Saab truly has the Midas touch on a red carpet.

Whoever he dresses always shines like gold.

However, we have one particular favourite A-list pairing for the Lebanese designer: Angelina Jolie. To celebrate her 43rd birthday, we thought these stunning looks deserved a revisit.

Jolie donned the Middle Eastern label for a photo shoot earlier this year, according to Elie Saab’s Instagram account, and the result is the perfect mix of timeless and so of-the-moment.

The star wore a strapless cream gown from the label’s ready-to-wear line for the March issue of Grazia Italia, the brand revealed

With its artfully tailored corset and ruffled neckline, the number is positively dripping in Fifties appeal.

Jolie also turned to the label just last month for her ensemble for the American Society Of Cinematographers Awards, sporting a champagne-hued floor-length gown by Saab for the event, where she received the Board of Governors Award for her contribution to cinema.


With its layers of tulle, feather-like embroidery and fluttering cape, the wispy number hit the perfect balance of glamour and femininity.

The Girl, Interrupted star has relied upon Saab for awards shows throughout the years, wearing gowns from the label to the Academy Awards on two separate occasions.

This timeless Saab number on Jolie at the 2009 awards is one of our most beloved looks from the actress, who jazzed up the classic silhouette with jaw-dropping emerald earrings.

And who could forget about her 2014 Oscars look?

The Changeling star sported this creamy gold-hued gown that married an otherworldliness with a hit of glitz.

Jolie has also worn the label for off-duty dressing too, wowing us in this sophisticated belted cape last month.

Just gorgeous. We’ll keep you informed as this fruitful fashion relationship continues.
