With a distinctly Goth edge to her otherwise classic style, Angelina Jolie has always favored head-to-toe black, both on the red carpet and off. And although the 35-year-old actress employs wardrobe help in the form of celebrity stylist Jen Rade (as well as her partner, Brad Pitt), her outfits clearly start with her own taste. Jolie has a timeless style with a rock-n-roll edge, and always stays true to this look.

There was her memorable 2009 Oscars ensemble – the onyx velvet Elie Saab column with a plunging neckline, accessorized brilliantly with hubcap-sized emerald earrings. And of course her everyday outfit of simple black jeans and tees, always fitted just right and paired with oversized designer shades for running around with Brad and their brood. Jolie generally manages to look put-together and chic in the inky hue.

In her very public role as UN Goodwill Ambassador, Jolie tends toward the classics. That often means simple shift dresses and subdued car coats with cashmere wraps. Her trick here is to lengthen her already mile-high legs with nude pumps.

And the Oscar-winner, frequently seen with a classic Vuitton tote dangling from her shoulder (and, incidentally, recently landed a lucrative gig with the iconic French brand) -- a movie-star-version diaper bag, perhaps?
