First Look of the Day: Disney has released its first pic of Angelina Jolie as the villain in the upcoming Maleficent, and the casting obviously is perfection. The film, scheduled for March 2014, will tell the backstory of the dark queen from the 1959 classic Sleeping Beauty.
“I’ve already got my horns fitted. My kids are very happy,” Jolie, who also is producing the film, told EW earlier this year.
Bonus: Elle Fanning plays Aurora!

THE LEG (2012)
starring Angelina Jolie’s Leg
directed by Angelina Jolie
The Oscar for best-dressed at the Oscars, however, goes to Angelina Jolie, in a daring, strapless Versace gown of black velvet, with a bustle and an asymmetrical bodice that resembled tulip-petals, slit to show off her legs to die for. That is more like it: something to die for! She resembled Sargent’s Madame X.
And in the to-die-for department, special mention goes to Rooney Mara, who lost to Meryl Streep, but showed the competition what Oscar fashion should be. Her white slip of a dress, by Givenchy, evoked vintage Chanel (Chanel-Chanel, not Lagerfeld-Chanel, one of the bias cut slips of the nineteen-thirties). Mara seems to understand that style requires exaggeration, and everything about her is exaggerated: her emaciated figure; her shellacked hair; its inky artificial blackness, the punkish bangs; the thick brows over the alarming blue eyes; and the aching fragility—all of it a contrast to her freshness.- Judith Thurman on the best-dressed and last night’s trends (red hair and sequins): http://nyr.kr/y8Tf5a
