Turns out, Angelina Jolie has a penchant for letting her daughters dip into her wardrobe of iconic gowns. Last week, 16-year-old Zahara was spotted stunning the red carpet in her mother’s Elie Saab dress that she wore to the 2014 Academy Awards, but now, it was 15-year-old Shiloh Jolie-Pitt‘s turn to relive another of Jolie’s fashion moments—this time, donning Dior.
Taking to the red carpet of yet another Eternals premiere, Shiloh turned up wearing what looked to be her mother’s Dior gown, that she wore in 2019 for the press tour of Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, as per Page Six.
However, the resemblance may not have been caught at first since the black-and-white ensemble looks to have been shortened to just above the knee from its original full-length hem line. Additionally, the removed fabric looks to have been repurposed to turn the neckline into thinner straps, tied in segments with the leftover fabric.
Recently, Jolie spoke candidly about letting her children rewear her hand-me-downs and bring a new life to outfits that spent most of their lives tucked away in her wardrobe.
“I’m like, ‘Oh my God, wear it and wear it better than me! Take it, it’s your turn,’” Jolie said in an interview with E!.
“I invest in quality pieces, and then just wear them to death. Boots, a favourite coat, a favourite purse, I don’t change things often, you know? That’s one of my things.” But for the pieces she no longer deems necessary in her style selection, she passes along to her daughters, so they can enjoy upcycling the long-lasting garments.
Opening up about motherhood amidst the pandemic, Jolie went on to explain how she’s found being a stay-at-home mother difficult.
“I was never very good at sitting still,” she said. “Even though I wanted to have many children and be a mom, I always imagined it kind of like Jane Goodall, travelling in the middle of the jungle somewhere,”
“I didn’t imagine it in that true, traditional sense. I feel like I’m lacking in all the skills to be a traditional stay-at-home mum. I’m managing through it because the children are quite resilient, and they’re helping me, but I’m not good at it at all.”
