Angelina Jolie wears Elie Saab kaftan while shopping in LA

  • Actress Angelina Jolie enjoyed a shopping spree with her oldest daughters in Los Angeles over the weekend, wearing a modest kaftan designed by Lebanese couturier Elie Saab
  • Saab, the 54-year-old Arab fashion designer who is a hit with Hollywood A-listers on the red carpet, is a personal favorite of Jolie

JEDDAH: Actress Angelina Jolie enjoyed a shopping spree with her oldest daughters in Los Angeles over the weekend, wearing a modest kaftan designed by Lebanese couturier Elie Saab.
“Timeless elegance” is how Elie Saab described Jolie in the photos on its Instagram page.
Despite the sunny weather in Los Angeles, the actress chose a long, black flowing maxi, which included long sleeves, a cape overlay with leather accents and lace detailing on the front and back. She completed the look with a black Céline purse, neutral Christian Louboutin pumps and oversized round sunglasses.
Saab, the 54-year-old Arab fashion designer who is a hit with Hollywood A-listers on the red carpet, is a personal favorite of Jolie too.
The actress-turned-director donned an Elie Saab Couture dress for the American Society of Cinematographers Awards in February this year. Jolie wore a similar Elie Saab gown to the 2014 Oscars from the designer’s fall/winter 2013 haute couture collection.
In Los Angeles, the 43-year-old Oscar winner was spotted with her daughters, Zahara, 13, and Shiloh, 12, at the Kitson store, a well-known lifestyle boutique for celebrity-spotting, especially by paparazzi. According to store owner Fraser Ross, Jolie appeared to be “relaxed” and was a “hands-on person.”
“Anything the girls said, she’d come and look. If they had something to show her, she’d go over there. They definitely explored every part of that store. She didn’t leave there before she looked at everything,” Ross told US Weekly.
He said the trio browsed the store for about an hour and a half and purchased earrings for Zahara.
Jolie’s late mother, Marcheline Bertrand, used to live nearby and shop at the store.
Meanwhile, Jolie and Brad Pitt have reportedly reached a temporary custody agreement after their months-long battle over their six kids: Maddox, 17, Pax, 14, Zahara, Shiloh and 10-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne. The temporary agreement, which comes nearly two years after Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt, 54, in September 2016, will see them through until an evaluator can finish gathering information about the family.
The actress made headlines earlier this month when she accused Pitt of not paying any “meaningful” child support since their decision to split. The contention that Pitt has not paid child support was immediately disputed by his lawyers.
Earlier this year, Jolie was ordered by the court to allow her children to spend more time with their father or risk losing custody.
