The actress, clad in Ralph Lauren, proves that serious directors don't dress like bombshells.

When we think of Angelina Jolie on the red carpet, we think of tight Versace gowns, strapless everything, her arms bare, side slits, etc etc. As a movie star, she's the epitome of the brunette bombshell.

Now that she's stepping out as a first time director with In the Land of Blood and Honey, she's switching up her image with the help of her longtime stylist Jen Rade. An evening skirt and a blouse at a movie premier in New York? And when did our Angelina ever wear Ralph Lauren?

It's not a bad plan for Angelina to look more lowkey and not show off her amazing body. We've always been a fan of the evening skirt and it's interesting she chose pleats, which convery a bit of a schoolgirl feeling -- studious, innocent, bookish. She also wore a Ralph Lauren Bedford handbag earlier in the week in New York. Do we smell an ad campaign in the works?

Wanna bet when she goes to the Globes and the Oscars with Brad Pitt it's back to skin tight and cleavage?
