When it comes to fashion, Angelina Jolie plays favorites. The actor-director’s well-edited wardrobe consists of tried and true labels like Ryan Roche, Gabriela Hearst, and The Row. Still, at Variety's Power Of Women event in Beverly Hills, she added a new designer to her repertoire. On hand to honor poet Amanda Gorman, Jolie arrived in a caramel brown silk gown by the label Harithand, created by Iraqi-Lebanese designer Harith Hashim. With its monochromatic color scheme, long-sleeves, and tiered design, the look adhered to Jolie’s minimalist tastes while adding a new and romantic verve.
The dress was a standout piece within Hashim’s Sunset Dream prêt-à-porter collection, a dreamy lineup of gowns that seems tailor-made for awards season. While it’s easy to imagine Hashim’s ruffled matte satin and silk plissé gowns on Hollywood’s elite, the designer has already developed a loyal following in his home base of Beirut, Lebanon, and across the Middle East. A nominee for 2020’s Vogue Fashion Prize, his elegant and feminine vision has struck a chord with women searching for individualistic evening wear.
Accompanied by daughter Zahara, Jolie looked right at home in her gown as she posed for the cameras. In the Harithand lookbook, the piece is styled with statement earrings, but Jolie skipped the jewelry and let the design take center stage. In doing so, the always ahead-of-the-curve star brought something fresh to the red carpet.
