Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt were one of Hollywood’s most beloved couples…until they weren’t. We all remember the highly publicized and very dramatic divorce between these two Hollywood A-listers that resulted in Brad Pitt getting together with Angelina Jolie shortly afterward.
Although some of the tabloids tried to depict Jennifer as a jilted lover, she rocked the red carpet premiere of her movie “Derailed” with her head held high. She wore a glistening Chanel minidress that showed off her amazing legs, toned arms, and radiant smile. This dress captured Jennifer’s signature sexy-but-cute look that fans and admirers love. She looked anything but “derailed” by her breakup. Brad who?
“We Were on a Break”
Prince William and Princess Kate Middleton are inseparable pillars of the Royal Family. Although they seem stronger than ever as a couple today, they’ve gone through their ups and downs. Back in 2007, they reportedly took a break from their relationship for a few months. As any 20-something would do, Kate took it as an opportunity to hit the town with her sister, Pippa.
She decided to flaunt her stuff in this shiny kerchief dress and black boho bag. The plunging neckline and flimsy spaghetti straps are a far cry from Kate’s reserved royal style, but she was out to prove a point. She and William were on a break, so she decided to remind the paparazzi (and Will) how cool and sexy she was. This revenge look must have worked because the rest is royal history.
A Bustier Boost
What do you wear when you have to attend a movie premiere that your soon-to-be ex-husband is also attending? Cue: Nicole Kidman in this little black dress. The evening before her divorce from Tom Cruise was legally finalized, Nicole attended the premiere of “The Others.” The problem was Tom was also attending because he produced the film. Awkward.
In classic breakup fashion, Nicole pulled out all the stops for her red carpet outfit. She showed up wearing this breathtaking black bustier dress and strappy stiletto heels to match. Nicole and Tom had already been separated for a few months by the time of the premiere, but Nicole definitely knew the kind of message she was sending with this look. This dress screams “single and ready to mingle.” Va-va-voom.
Angelina Jolie Flies Solo in Toronto
Over a decade after Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston parted ways, another one of his high-profile exes hit the red carpet in her own revenge dress. Angelina Jolie attended the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival sans Brad in an off-the-shoulder black gown. Angelina looked unbothered and serene as she walked the carpet for her film “First They Killed My Father.”
Angelina’s revenge look is understated by chic. She paired the beautifully draped dress with sky-high stilettos and classy drop earrings. Her hair is swept back in an effortless half-up, half-down style that makes her look youthful and powerful. We hate to break it to Brad Pitt, but he’s been the inspiration behind some pretty fire revenge looks.
New Year, New Kim
Kim Kardashian’s marriage to basketball player Kris Humphries may have only lasted 72 days, but it was still worth a hot revenge look. Kim rang in the New Year in this Gucci minidress at the TAO nightclub in Vegas, only a couple of months after filing for divorce.
As always, Kim looked stunning in this short white dress. The minidress and keyhole cut-out showed off all her curves in all the right places. She completed her look with giant hoop earrings and a rare bang hairstyle. Let’s be real. How many of us have gone through a bang phase post-breakup? We’ve all been there, Kim.
