Angelina Jolie Makes First Red Carpet Appearance After Double Mastectomy

Angelina Jolie walked the red carpet wearing custom Saint Laurent at the premiere of hubby Brad Pitt's film World War Z this morning in London. She looked radiant and impossibly gorgeous--in other words, how she's looked at every major event since pretty much ever. Except this appearance is different.

Angelina Jolie walked the red carpet wearing custom Saint Laurent at the premiere of hubby Brad Pitt's film World War Z yesterday in London. She looked radiant and impossibly gorgeous--in other words, how she's looked at every major event since pretty much ever.

Except this appearance is different: It's the first time Jolie has walked the red carpet since having a double mastectomy--a procedure which was completed at the end of April this year.

Jolie revealed her decision to undergo the operation in a New York Times op-ed--a disclosure which immediately sent shockwaves 'round the Internet.

"I'm very, very grateful for all the support," Jolie told BBC television at the premiere (via The Hollywood Reporter). "I've been very happy just to see the discussion about women's health expanded, and that means the world to me."

She added that she felt "great" and "wonderful." We'd like to add that she looked it too: the dress is one of Hedi Slimane's most polished for Saint Laurent.
