While Jolie may have access to all the best outfits high-end designers have to offer, the actress and UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador keeps things straightforward and low-key when her work doesn’t involve the red carpet.
“It’s all the same. When I’m not doing this, I wear the same pants and same shirt every day. I don’t change,” she told MTV at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival.
“On occasion [I wash them] but I have a few of the same things. It’s like a uniform.”
Also a fan of the work uniform, bridal designer Vera Wang relies on a handful of all-black key staples that she puts on high rotation.
“I realised that everybody in the end comes down to a uniform,” she wrote in her blog Vera Unveiled.
“In the end—even as a fashion professional, or fashion insider, someone who’s looked at fashion for so long, and from so many different angles—there is a uniform that works for you. And that uniform can be modified, and it can be changed, and it can be dressed up, dressed down, explored, taken more street, taken more couture, but in the end, it’s an editing process.
“And as you become more certain of your own vision, and your own taste and your own style, as you evolve, as a person, not just as a woman, you do end up in a uniform.”
