Exclusive Fab Interview with Angelina Jolie's Stylist Jennifer Rade

Exclusive Fab Interview with Angelina Jolie's Stylist Jennifer Rade

Longtime stylist Jennifer Rade calls herself the Wicked Witch of Wardrobe, and I'll add to that the busiest stylist working today. I had the pleasure of meeting Jennifer a few years back at a Gap Bra Bar event for which she was the spokesperson. I recall the sassy stylist referring to Angelina Jolie, whom she works with closely, simply as Angie. In addition, she's styled music videos (Avril Lavigne, Marilyn Manson, Pink) and commercials, the most recent one being the Jovovich-Hawk for Target one. Jen took a few minutes out of her hectic day to chat with Fab about Angie, her style icons, and what every girl should carry in their purse.

What are your three favorite Angelina Jolie outfits that you've styled?

I think Oscars from 2004 (the cream Marc Bouwer), Mr. & Mrs. Smith premiere (the leather Versace), and Ocean's 13 premiere in Cannes (yellow Peter Dundas for Ungaro).

If your house was burning down and you only had time to save one clothing item, what would it be and why?

Tough question. I would probably try to grab my great grandmother's purses since they've been around so long. Really, I would save nothing other than myself, my husband, and our dogs, because clothing is replaceable.

To read the rest and to see a gallery of Angelina styled by Jen,

What should every girl have in their purse in case of a fashion emergency?

Double sided fashion tape or toupee tape, like Hollywood Fashion Tape, Topstick, or Bug Catcherz. It's like the duct tape of the fashion world!

As a stylist, do you feel the pressure of always dressing uniquely?

No. I dress in a casual and classic style. Cool flats (I am obsessed with Elisa Ferare!) with great jeans (J Brand skinny, Paige boot cut, Ranahan Wide Leg) and a simple top. Maybe a cool accessory like a vintage necklace or a few stacking rings from Tiffany or Gurhan or J. Herwitt.

Who are your style icons and what do you admire so much about them?

Wow, this is so hard. Katharine Hepburn, a pioneer and so classic and timeless. Talitha Getty, just cool and bohemian. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen: I love that they do their own thing and take chances. Kate Moss because she wears clothes, they never wear her. Princess Diana, Catherine Deneuve, Diane Von Furstenberg, Sophia Loren . . . it's kind of an endless list.

Can you take me behind the scenes of the Target commercials?

I recently styled the new Jovovich-Hawk for Target commercial and it was so fun! Carmen and Milla are so funny and the clothes are awesome! I love working with Target, great company, great ad agency, and we always have a great time working together.

Love love all the choices she mentions that were made for Angie. Loved the yellow, and the leather was amazing.

The yellow and cream were both amazing. I wasn't a fan of the leather.

Good interview! I love that yellow dress on Angelina also. That looked especially nice on her because she doesn't always do bright colors so she really "pops" when she does.
