Angelina Jolie has gone back to blonde.
The Maleficent star, 48, was pictured with newly-dyed honey tresses reminiscent of her 1990’s blonde era, as she ditched her signature dark chocolate shade.
The actress famously rocked a similar look in the 1999 psychological drama Girl, Interrupted, where she had a mid-length golden hairstyle while playing antagonist Lisa Rowe — a rebellious yet charismatic sociopath.
The mother-of-six was pictured looking chic as ever while working on her new collection with Chloe, in two images released by the fashion house.
One photo saw her in an elegant sleeveless black gown with her hair styled straight as she worked with the team on the upcoming fashion range.

Another photo saw her discussing some ideas with the others at a table, while sporting a beige coat.
The superstar has mostly kept to a darker hair color over the years and has worn her hair long, aside from rocking a pixie haircut back in the late 90’s.
The actress and director — who announced her own label in mid May — has teamed up with the brand to create a womenswear capsule collection.
The Hollywood icon is working with the French luxury fashion house to create the sustainable Atelier Jolie range which has been co-designed by Angelina and Chloé’s creative director Gabriela Hearst.
Inspired by Angelina’s own wardrobe, the collection is comprised of evening wear and will feature fluid silhouettes and tactile details, while offering a timeless aesthetic in line with Jolie’s vision ‘to create one-of-a-kind pieces that embody personal creativity and purpose’.
The collection is inspired by the pair’s mutual ‘high ideals for the betterment of our species’ and the Tomb Raider star is donating her earnings from the collaboration to invest in ‘establishing apprenticeships for tailors and artisans at Atelier Jolie’.
In a statement, Gabriela said: ‘From the moment I heard about Angelina’s vision for Atelier Jolie, I believed in it. It is a way to elevate others through the beauty of garment-making and her deep respect for the environment.
‘It’s an honour for me that Chloé will be the first collaborator for Atelier Jolie, as both have high ideals for the betterment of our species. That is the reason why I love both Angelina and Chloé so deeply.’

Angelina added: ‘Very few luxury brands are a certified B Corp. It was important to me to work with Chloé, one of the first luxury brands to be a B Corp. It has been a privilege to design with Gabriela Hearst, and I hope all women will feel comfortable and beautiful in this capsule collection.
‘My earnings from this collaboration will be invested in establishing apprenticeships for tailors and artisans at Atelier Jolie.’
Atelier Jolie will be available from this Autumn.
In mid May she shared she is launching Atelier Jolie which will be a space for creative types in the design field.
The ex-wife of Brad Pitt shared a look at her new logo over a copper background.
‘I’m starting something new today—a collective where everyone can create,’ wrote the mother of six.
‘Atelier Jolie is a place for creative people to collaborate with a skilled and diverse family of expert tailors, pattern makers and artisans from around the world,’ added the Eternals actress.
And the former UN ambassador continued: ‘It stems from my appreciation and deep respect for the many tailors and makers I’ve worked with over the years, a desire to make use of the high-quality vintage material and deadstock fabric already available, and also to be part of a movement to cultivate more self-expression.’
Deadstock fabric refers to rolls of fabric that are left unsold by a fabric mill or leftover from a brand’s production run.

Jolie ended with: ‘I’m looking forward to growing this with you. More soon. Learn more at atelierjolie.com.’
Her pal Priyanka Chopra added a red heart and fire emoji.
On her website Jolie shared a signed note.
‘Fashion is an art I’ve had the opportunity to play with over the years. I’ve designed clothes and learned about shapes with many of the best tailors,’ wrote the Tomb Raider star.
Designers often sketch or approve designs, but it is the tailors who make the difference, she noted.
And that is who she ‘truly loves creating with,’ said the daughter of Jon Voight.
Angelina added that these makers rarely receive the credit and respect they deserve.
ANGELINA JOLIE’S BEST RED CARPET MOMENTS
By Heidi Parker
Angelina Jolie’s Hollywood career began in 1995 when she played Kate in the film Hackers. But when she starred as model Gia in the 1998 HBO movie, she became a fashion icon. Soon after she started making some major statements on the red carpet, like her cream satin gown at the 76th Annual Academy Awards at Kodak Theatre in Hollywood in 2004 and, more recently, her shimmering flapper look at the Maleficent: Mistress of Evil film premiere at the Roppongi Hills Arena in Tokyo, Japan in 2019.
