Angelina Jolie created a buzz last night when she wore a $26 vintage frock to the New York premiere of her new film “A Mighty Heart”. Jolie gushed on camera to Access Hollywood about the “G” fashion find–a black, crushed velvet gown bought on the cheap by a friend at Wasteland, the vintage mecca on Melrose Avenue. Anyone would agree that she looked like a million bucks–even if she hadn’t worn her $1000 Christian Louboutin heels.
Jolie’s televised confessional has already sent style bloggers into a tizzy. Most were amazed and impressed that she dared to walk the Red Carpet in a Walmart-priced gown of unknown origin. But Jolie told Access Hollywood that she enjoys finding a vintage bargain now and again. Could this be the beginning of a Hollywood trend?
