Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt finally got married on August 23 at their French estate Chateau Miraval, in front of their six children, and a small group of friends and family.

Angelina Jolie let her children design her long veil, which was covered in their hand-drawings. Unique idea, eh?

Her gorgeous gown was created by Atelier Versace tailor Luigi Massi. He also hand-sewed a number of the children’s drawings on her floor-length veil. “Luigi is like family to me and I couldn’t imagine anyone else making this dress,” the 39-year-old bride told People. “He knows and cares for the children and it was great fun putting it together.”

Jolie added to HELLO!: “I wanted the kids to be a part of everything including the dress because that’s our family; that represents the way we live our life together.”

Angelina kept her hair and makeup simple for her wedding day, and she looked absolutely radiant.

The gorgeous Angelina Jolie covers Elle Magazine!

angelina-jolie-elle-june

Angelina Jolie lands the June cover of Elle Magazine, and not just the US edition. She covers ALL of Elle’s June covers  – which includes 20 international editions. The actress is promoting her new movie, ‘Maleficent,’ which explains why she’s on 20 covers. It’s surprising to see her on the cover of a magazine, I feel like it’s been a while since we’ve seen her promoting a new movie. In the gorgeous photos, Angelina wears Yves Saint Laurent – exclusively. She looks amazing. I love that she only wears black. Girl after my own heart.

Whether she’s tackling films, family, or philanthropy, Angelina Jolie has never been one for small measures. As she prepares to terrify children worldwide as Disney’s deliciously evil Maleficent (the film opens on May 30th), the actress and director works with Saint Laurent creative director Hedi Slimane on a shoot that spotlights her stripped down, very real self for ELLE’s June cover—as well as a 16-page portfolio that will be featured in more than 20 editions of ELLE around the world.

Jolie spoke candidly with ELLE deputy editor Maggie Bullock about life with her fast-growing children (Shiloh’s got a half-pipe!), doing only the work that really matters (including the biggest passion project of her career), and why she and Brad are still passionate and “more interested in each other” than ever. In this exclusive preview, Jolie reflects on the perception of her early years in the spotlight:

The tumult of her twenties, was “misinterpreted as [me] wanting to be rebellious,” Jolie says. “And in fact it wasn’t a need to be destructive or rebellious—it’s that need to find a full voice, to push open the walls around you. You want to be free. And as you start to feel that you are being corralled into a certain life, you kind of push against it. It may come out very strange, it may be interpreted wrong, but you’re trying to find out who you are.”

BREAKING NEWS: Angelina Jolie undergoes preventative double mastectomy – what would you do?

Angelina Jolie has undergone a preventative double mastectomy. The actress revealed the news herself in an article she wrote for The New York Times titled ‘My Medical Choice.’

Angelina explained that she underwent the breast removal procedure because he has the mutated BRCA1 gene, which is known to increase a woman’s chance of getting both breast and ovarian cancers.

Angelina, 37, explained her decision in the article (which you can read in full here):

My doctors estimated that I had an 87 percent risk of breast cancer and a 50 percent risk of ovarian cancer, although the risk is different in the case of each woman.

Once I knew that this was my reality, I decided to be proactive and to minimize the risk as much I could. I made a decision to have a preventive double mastectomy. I started with the breasts, as my risk of breast cancer is higher than my risk of ovarian cancer, and the surgery is more complex.

On April 27, I finished the three months of medical procedures that the mastectomies involved. During that time I have been able to keep this private and to carry on with my work.

My own process began on Feb. 2 with a procedure known as a “nipple delay,” which rules out disease in the breast ducts behind the nipple and draws extra blood flow to the area. This causes some pain and a lot of bruising, but it increases the chance of saving the nipple. CONTINUE READING (SHE OPENS UP ABOUT BRAD PITT) AFTER THE JUMP! More »


Brad Pitt named the face of Chanel No. 5!

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are making tons of money as the faces of fashion and beauty campaigns. It was reported last year that Louis Vuitton paid Angelina Jolie millions to be the face of their “Core Values” campaign. Among other contracts, she is one busy woman! Now we learn that her fiance, Brad Pitt, is also getting into the beauty biz.

E! News reports that Brad has been named the face of Chanel No. 5, which is a woman’s perfume!

Yes, it’s a scent for a woman, but if ever there was a man pretty enough to render that particular point moot, it’s Brad Pitt.

Proving yet again that his musky appeal knows no bounds, E! News has exclusively learned that Angelina Jolie’s better half has signed on as the new face of Chanel’s signature No. 5 scent.

Reps for neither Pitt nor the perfume house have commented on the new partnership, but a source tells E! News that the actor will be shooting his firstperfume ad in London sometime this week (the superstar family has set up their most recent homestead in the UK).

And for his endorsement troubles, Pitt will be bringing home some serious bacon for the Jolie-Pitt clan, with his paycheck for the spot somewhere in the seven-figures. The Chanel No. 5 ad will be released overseas sometime later this year. Makes scents to us.

All I have to say is – let’s see the ads!
