Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt Had a Fashion Moment Every Couple Could Relate To

While Angelina Jolie is one of the most stylish women on the red carpet, that doesn't mean all the characters she plays are up to par. But in her self-directed film, By the Sea, Angelina took on the role of Vanessa, an unbelievably chic woman living in France during the '70s. One fashion item she's always got on hand? A pair of oversize sunglasses.

The importance of the accessory is outlined in Angelina's Nov. 2015 cover feature for WSJ Magazine:

Jolie was equally painstaking about By the Sea's 1970s period wardrobe - including her oversize sunglasses, which [Brad] Pitt's character, Roland, keeps righting for his wife after she tosses them, a lot, onto tables, a mini pas de deux Jolie took from their former marriage. "Brad hates that I always scratch my glasses," she said, adding that in the film, the gesture shows that Roland still cares for her character, Vanessa. "Even when he wants to punch her in the face, he still fixes her glasses!"

While Angelina and Brad didn't suffer the same troubles as their characters, we love the poetic license Angelina took, turning a simple couple's quirk into a weighty symbol for her movie. Whether you're watching Angelina on screen or on the street, there's no denying the lady looks good in her shades, from aviators to a fierce cat-eye silhouette. Read on for 17 pictures that are pure proof.
