It was a momentous night for Angelina Jolie as she was honored at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’s 5th annual Governors Awards over the weekend in Los Angeles. Accompanied by Brad Pitt and son Maddox, along with some of Hollywood’s finest—Lupita Nyong’o, Jennifer Garner, Octavia Spencer, Naomie Harris, Amy Adams and more—Jolie’s heavy dedication to her humanitarian work garnered her the prestigious Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award, making her both the youngest person and seventh woman to receive the award, not to mention raising her Oscar statuette count to two (she won in 2000 for her supporting role in Girl, Interrupted).
During Jolie’s emotional acceptance speech, she paid tribute to her late mother, Marcheline Bertrand, who passed away in 2007 from ovarian cancer. “She was very clear that nothing would mean anything if I didn’t live a life of use to others,” Jolie said. “And I didn’t know what that meant for a long time…It was only when I began to travel and look and live beyond my home that I understand my responsibility to others.” With over 30 films to her name, Jolie has been involved in more than 40 United Nations Refugee Agency field missions, and in addition to being a mother and a director, she has founded several charitable organizations, and she’s still doing more. “I will do as my mother asked and do the best I can with this life, be of use, and to stand here today means that I did as she asked and if she were alive, she’d be very proud.” Jolie joins fellow Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award recipients—Oprah Winfrey, Elizabeth Taylor, Paul Newman, Quincy Jones, and others —and continued the night in celebrating fellow honorees Steve Martin, Angela Lansbury, and Piero Tosi.
…But not for her on-screen work. Later this year the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will present Angelina Jolie with her second Oscar—this time, in honor of her humanitarian work. Jolie will receive the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award at the Academy’s 5th Annual Governors Awards, which is an Oscar statuette given to individuals in the film industry whose humanitarian efforts have brought credit to the industry. Jolie has certainly done that, working with organizations like the United Nations and the Council on Foreign Relations to bring injustice around the world to light. Congrats! We can’t think of any Hollywood do-gooder who is more deserving.

Angelina Jolie, Natalie Portman, and Kristen Bell Attend Disney’s D23 Expo, Plus More Celebrity Parties!Aug 12, 2013 @ 3:17 pm
The happiest place on Earth got an extra dose of star power this weekend! Held at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, celebrities like Natalie Portman (in Louis Vuitton), Angelina Jolie (in Saint Laurent Paris), and Kristen Bell stepped out at Disney’s D23 Expo to talk about their much-anticipated projects. Bell and her co-star, Broadway actress Idina Menzel, got animated about their upcoming film Frozen, which is loosely based on Hans Christian Andersen’s story The Snow Queen, while Portman and Tom Hiddleston attended a panel for Thor: The Dark World. However, one of the most unexpected moments was when Angelina Jolie surprised the crowd to speak about her upcoming role in Maleficent, which follows the storyline of Disney’s Sleeping Beauty from the villainess’ point of view. “Since I was a little girl, Maleficent was always my favorite,” Jolie told her fans. “I was terrified of her, but I was always drawn to her.” The feeling is mutual!

Angelina Jolie sat before the United Nations Security Council in New York City this week as Goodwill ambassador for refugees to fight for women’s rights in third world countries. Not only do we appreciate the humanitarian’s valiant efforts—she spoke about the need to implement a resolution that would punish perpetrators of sexual violence in war-ravaged areas—but also her toned-down, professional attire for such an important occasion. The actress accessorized her white bow blouse and black blazer by Saint Laurent with minimal jewelry, including a pair of pearl studs by Pearl Paradise. The round South Sea pearls are available in both yellow or white gold for $1,008 (what Jolie wore). There is also a freshwater pearl option set on solid 14-karat posts; find them for $70 at pearlparadise.com.

This week marked Angelina Jolie’s first public appearances since she revealed she had a preventative double mastectomy—and what a return she made. All eyes were on her as she stood by fiancé Brad Pitt’s side for the world premieres of his new apocalyptic film World War Z, and she looked lovely in her go-to neutral hues, black and white. ”She keeps things simple and elegant,” her stylist Jennifer Rade once told InStyle. Although she wore a black Saint Laurent gown, black Saint Laurent suit, and white peplum Ralph & Russo dress, added Rade, “she doesn’t know about labels and doesn’t care.” So here’s to welcoming back Angelina to the red carpet—this week proved why we love her style so much.

While raiding the closet of Angelina Jolie is a dream for most of us, her celebrity stylist Jen Rade is offering every woman their own stylist experience with her EDGE line on QVC. Tonight, Rade will debut two new pieces for her line, both of which adhere to the idea that getting dressed in summer’s climbing temps shouldn’t be a challenge. ”The key to my whole aesthetic is being able to dress something up, or dress it down,” she told us. “It comes from being a stylist. I want to make sure that if I buy a piece for a client, it’s something they can wear year-round that is a good addition to their closet.” Rade recommends choosing items that are easy to wear, but have interesting details to replace extra accessories — elements that appear in her latest additions. The boho-chic tunic ($43; qvc.com) is perfect for those super-hot days where breathable fabric is key, while her studded tank ($40; qvc.com) is designed to flatter. “Each side has a row of studs at an angle, which is meant to draw your eye inward and give you shape,” she added. Tune in to QVC at 7 PM EST
tonight to catch Jen’s appearance.
