They say "If it ain't broke, don't fit it", and Angelina Jolie has definitely taken that phrase to heart when it comes to her red carpet outfits. Ever since she began her career in the mid-'90s, she's been devoted to one particular style: the sexy black gown. If it's strapless, and in a tactle fabric like velvet, satin, or leather, all the better. Her recent glamorous turn at the BAFTA Awards had us flashing back the the headline-grabbing velvet number that allowed her to flash a whole lot of leg at the 2012 Oscars, and it's not the first time she's turned heads in a similar style. We've counted more than half a dozen near-identical strapless gowns over the years, and even when she changes things up (like choosing deep chocolate brown at the Cannes Film Festival, or swapping the neckline out for something more demure) the hallmarks of her go-to look are still there (especially those thigh-high slits). When it comes to the red carpet, Angelina knows that sometimes, you have to stick to what you know best. Take a look back at her most memorable red carpet moments in these signature gowns now.
