Angelina Jolie’s Cape Is Quite the Fashion Flashback

Historically, capes have always been used to make a bold sartorial statement—whether on or off the red carpet—as demonstrated by Jackie Kennedy’s all-white Oleg Cassini ensemble for her husband’s Inaugural Ball in 1961, or André Leon Talley’s theatrical Gucci by Tom Ford look for the 2007 Met Gala. Fast forward to today, and Angelina Jolie has been spotted incorporating the cape into her elegant contemporary wardrobe.

Out in New York City with her family, the 47-year-old Hollywood star wore a chic ensemble comprising a cream silk slip dress with a black bouclé caped coat thrown over the top. The look was topped off with a black leather Saint Laurent clutch bag and a gold pair of pointed toe heels.

The look echoed Angelina’s chosen outfit for the 1997 Cable Ace awards, where the actor wore a black velvet caped coat, not dissimilar to the one she wore this week, over a lilac floor-length slip dress.
