Angelina Jolie 'irritated at stylist'
Angelina Jolie is reportedly "horrified" that her stylist chose an Oscars dress that forced her to pose with an exaggerated leg stance.
The Hollywood actress was the subject of ridicule after her appearance at the 84th Academy Awards at the end of last February. Angelina donned a black velvet Atelier Versace gown to the coveted film ceremony that boasted a thigh-high split. The beauty chose a bizarre pose that saw her right leg grab global attention, and spark hilarious spoof images on the internet.
Angelina is said to be devastated that she has been parodied and is even considering sacking her stylist Jen Rade for choosing the much-talked about gown.
"Angelina is horrified at the reaction her Oscars dress received. She pays her stylist Jen a lot of money to pick things that will make her look drop-dead gorgeous, but she felt the dress swallowed her up and she had to stick her leg, or it looked like she was wearing a bin bag," a source told British magazine Closer.
"Now she's being laughed at when she's worked so hard on her look. She feels like a joke and is worried her reputation may have taken a hit."
According to insiders, Angelina was so upset about the mocking that she chose to shun the Oscars after-parties.
"Ange briefly went to George Clooney's post Academy Awards dinner but left early on as she was still upset," the source added.
"She bitterly regrets wearing the dress and is just hoping the next time she's on the red carpet, she makes headlines for the right reasons."
