Angelina Jolie is one of the most famous actresses in Hollywood today. From starring in blockbuster movies to her humanitarian work, Jolie is no stranger to the spotlight. However, she wasn’t always a big movie star; let’s take a look at one of her very first red carpet appearances.
Jolie’s First Red Carpet Appearance With Dad Jon Voight
For Jolie, acting is the family business. Her parents, Marcheline Bertrand and Academy Award-winner Jon Voight are both actors, which meant red carpets were no big deal to a young Jolie.
Jolie frequently appeared by her father’s side on red carpets, even attending the 1986 and 1988 Oscars ceremonies with Voight and her brother James. One of her most memorable appearances was at the reopening of the stage show Tru in 1991.
Jolie’s style has stayed the same over the years: classic and understated. The then-16-year-old wore a gray suit and silk camisole to the show, accessorizing with a pearl and diamond necklace.
While Jolie was a familiar presence at her father’s events, it wasn’t long before she started stepping out on her own. A 1997 solo appearance at the Cable Ace Awards showed people Jolie’s new grown-up look, with dramatic eye makeup and slicked-back hair.
