Angelina Jolie went dark for her titular role in Maleficent, but for the film's photo call in London Friday, the actress was positively radiant! Less than 24 hours after she dazzled in a black Atelier Versace gown, the actress attended a press event at the Corinthia Hotel in a white knee-length dress by the same label.
The white dress was a subtle nod to the movie, courtesy of its hand-painted raven print. In the film, Maleficent relies on the shape-shifter Diaval (Sam Riley) to be her eyes and ears; to do so, he transforms into a raven.
Jolie's footwear was also apparently inspired by the movie, as the custom Christian Louboutin heels looked like thorns. The 38-year-old actress wore her blown-out brunette locks down and added a pop of color with a bold red lip.
During a recent press conference in Paris, Jolie said her Maleficent costume scared her six kids with Brad Pitt. How did she calm them down? "I brought them over to [Elle Fanning]. I introduced them to Sleeping Beauty, Prince Charming and all the nice people," she said, smiling. "They actually had to watch the prosthetics come on and off. I had a nosepiece and pointy cheeks and pointy ears and fangs in the back, so I had them come in and just watch all the pieces come off so they understood. But they really didn't like it. The littlest ones did—they thought it was fun. But Pax in particular was not OK with it at all. It's tough to see your mother that way. As a child, it's quite horrific."
