Actress Angelina Jolie, 38, has undergone a massive transformation over the years.

When she first started out acting in movies such as Hacker, where she met her first husband Jonny Lee Millar, she sported a wilder look with short, cropped hair and an impish grin on her face.

Later on she became darker, almost gothic with her fashion, notably when she won her Oscar for Girl, Interrupted although she always remained stunning on the red carpet with gorgeous gowns that suited her A-list status.

By the time she was starring as Lara Croft in the Tomb Raider movies she'd really hit her fashion stride, and regularly wowed with her dress sense, and even looked beautiful wearing a simple t-shirt and suit.

However, it's when she met her partner Brad Pitt that we see the style transformation complete, with exquisite dress after exquisite dress at every award ceremony and film premiere she attended, including her most recent at the opening of the Maleficent costume exhibition.

Warning: these pictures might provoke jealousy. Especially the ones with Brad.
