If you've noticed the wide range of shapes and styles Angelina Jolie prefers to sport both on the red carpet and off, you aren't the only one. "I was inspired by Angelina's incredible versatility and openness to different silhouettes and designs," says Rivini designer Rita Vinieris when creating a gown for the star. "She has an uncanny ability to wear a dress and not let the dress wear her." Vinieris imagines Jolie wearing a handwoven silk-charmeuse gown shrouded in tulle across the bust and neckline. The skirt of her design, which she calls Danielle, features hand-dyed ostrich feathers dusted in a flurry of crystals and accented with a tulle-covered crystal belt. "Angelina is a fashion icon," Vinieris adds, "with a tremendous ability to exude modern, understated elegance while retaining a signature look all her own."
