'It's a golden night for us': Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt scoop award for best dressed couple

They may have lost out on Golden Globe awards, but Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie scooped the gong for the best dressed couple on the red carpet.


Angelina wowed in a floor-length cream satin gown with a side slit that cut up to her thigh.


The asymmetric dress by Atelier Versace had a red fold across the chest, which Angelina, 36, matched with a miniature clutch bag and some bright pillarbox lipstick.

The interesting cut of the dress showed off Angelina's tiny frame thanks to its structured top, ruching at the waist and flowing skirt.

She also tied her brunette locks in an elegant bun and slipped some cream peep toe high heels onto her feet to complete the stunning look.
 
Brad, 48, wore a classic tuxedo by Tom Ford, with satin lapels and a bow tie to the star-studded event.

'It's a golden night for us,' he told E! host Ryan Seacrest, referring to the pair's double nomination.

Brad was up for Best Actor in a Drama and Best Motion Picture Drama for Moneyball, which he produced and starred in.

However, he lost out to his close friend George Clooney, who was joined at the event by his girlfriend Stacy Keibler. 


George had introduced Brad's film Moneyball at the ceremony, while Brad returned the favour and introduce The Descendants.

The actor is still walking with the aid of a cane following a knee injury, after he apparently slipped and fell while taking care of daughter Vivienne.

Meanwhile Angelina's directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey, was nominated in the Best Foreign Language Film category.

When asked about the film, she said: 'I was nervous about people in Bosnia seeing it who survived war and rape.'


'It's a very difficult subject matter, it's done in a foreign language, and with people nobody knows,'she explained.

'These are difficult times and people don't often want to watch difficult movies in difficult times, but it's important to revisit this history no matter, so we pushed forward and made it.'

Angelina's film did not win, however, with that honour going to Iranian film A Separation.

She did make an appearance on stage though, presenting the Best Director for Motion Picture honour to Martin Scorsese  for Hugo.
