Angelina Jolie in The Tourist

Angelina Jolie might be one of modern cinema’s most iconic vixens, but when creating her look for the new movie The Tourist, her costume designer looked to classic film noir glamour.

“My inspiration for [Jolie's character] Elise’s costumes were the Hitchcock movies: minimal elegance,” Academy Award-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood, who worked on the thriller, tells WHO.

In one scene, Jolie’s character dashes off to a ball in Venice, Italy, wearing a glamorous, flowing black gown topped off with a diamond-studded choker (below). “The black gown was designed to evoke the grand life, and to frame Angelina Jolie’s beauty,” Atwood explains. “The necklace was created by Robert Procop from an antique tiara, and [the diamonds were] definitely real!”

Another eye-catching number from the film, an ivory sheath accented with a camel shawl and gloves (above), had a royal lineage as well. “That look was inspired by a dress designed by Irene [Lentz], who is a legendary costume designer,” Atwood says. “I took the basic idea and added some flair to contemporise it. The original had a jacket, but I really wanted something a little more luxurious, so I created the cashmere wrap. I’ve always loved a glove, and was filming in the land of fine gloves, so I used a fine suede glove to finish the look.”

    I think she's a cunt and Chelsea's analysis is correct. A woman with no female friends there's a reason for this, no one trusts her!!!! Wimpy Brad is the best Nanny, money couldn't buy. He's a Geek inside not a hunk anymore, he surrendered that. Boy is Angie using him, poor Brad trapped like a rat . . . Chelsea should have asked Jennifer's permission before going off at Angie like that, Jennifer will get the backlash not Chelsea. Jennifer is too passive . . .
