Amidst the sea of disapproval, one fan admired Angelina's relaxed ensemble, stating, "So nice!" and ending with heart emojis. The netizens' debate over Angelina's "bedsheet" look follows her Vogue interview in September 2023.

In her interview, she discussed the connection between fashion and self-expression. She remarked, "Sometimes the way you dress says, 'Don't mess with me—I've got my armor on.'"

She expressed the desire for women to feel safe enough to embrace softness. Angelina shared a personal experience where a therapist suggested she wear flowing garments after a difficult time, challenging her belief that pants and boots made her appear tougher.

She expressed, "Sounds silly, but I assumed that pants and boots projected a 'tougher' look, a stronger me. But was I strong enough to be soft? At the time, no. I felt vulnerable." Despite feeling vulnerable, Angelina continues to explore her personal style and identity, recognizing that she is in a transitional phase of self-discovery.

Vivienne wore a charming teal tuxedo suit that consisted of tailored pants and a matching vest over a crisp white dress shirt.

Angelina, on the other hand, wore a stunning, floor-length, seafoam-green gown. The dress featured a draped, off-the-shoulder neckline and intricate ruching across the bodice, highlighting her slim figure.

The velvet gown, a creation of Atelier Versace, flowed into a graceful train, adding a sense of grandeur to her look. She kept her accessories minimal, allowing her natural elegance to shine. Her new bird tattoo subtly peeked through, adding a personal touch to the ensemble without overpowering the dress.

Her long, light brown hair was styled in soft waves, parted in the middle, and flowing over her shoulders. Her makeup was elegant and understated, featuring neutral tones that enhanced her natural beauty. She completed the look with simple yet elegant gold hoop earrings.

The duo's striking appearance didn't go unnoticed. Vogue Magazine posted the images and videos of Angelina and Vivienne on Instagram, referring to their red carpet presence as "a united mother-daughter fashion moment that completely stole the show."
