Angelina Jolie (Angelina Jolie
Voight; June 4, 1975) is an
American actress, film director, screenwriter, and author. She
has received an Academy Award, two Screen Actors Guild Awards,
and three Golden Globe Awards, and was named Hollywood's
highest-paid actress by Forbes in 2009, 2011, and 2013. Born in
Los Angeles, California, Jolie is the daughter of actors Jon
Voight and Marcheline Bertrand. She is the sister of actor James
Haven, niece of singer-songwriter Chip Taylor, and goddaughter
of actors Jacqueline Bisset and Maximilian Schell. When she was
seven years old, Jolie had a small part in Lookin' to Get Out
(1982), a movie co-written by and starring her father, Jon
Voight. Jolie's career prospects began to improve after she won
a Golden Globe Award for her performance in TNT's George Wallace
(1997). She portrayed Cornelia Wallace, the second wife of
Alabama Governor George Wallace, played by Gary Sinise. The film
was very well received by critics and won, among other awards,
the Golden Globe Award for Best Miniseries or Television Film.
Jolie also received an Emmy Award nomination for her
performance. In 1998, Jolie starred in HBO's Gia, portraying
supermodel Gia Carangi. The film chronicled the destruction of
Carangi's life and career as a result of her addiction to
heroin, and her decline and death from AIDS in the mid-1980s.
Considered one of the most beautiful
women in the world and quite possibly the reigning queen of fashion,
this "queen" is no stranger to fashion.

These days the self proclaimed "drama queen" and one
of Apparel Search's favorite "fashion queens" continues to influence
the world of fashion as a mother, humanitarian and significant other

Brad Pitt. A celebrity is a widely-recognized
or famous person who commands a high degree of public and media
The term glamour was
originally meant to be; a spell cast over
someone, particularly to change how things appeared to them. The
primary modern meaning of the word relates to fascination, charisma,
beauty, or attraction. Celebrities
are often referenced as glamorous. In addition to celebs being
glamorous, regular every day people, or their lifestyles,
can be described as glamorous. Although
many words which end in
in British English are spelled with "or"
in American English, "glamour" is an exception with the "u"
usually being retained. This may
be due to its original being Scottish rather than French or Latin.
The alternative spelling "glamour"
is sometimes used in American English, but not as frequently.
Also, Glamour in modern day is occasionally
abbreviated as simply Glam.
A fashion celebrity, in the opinion
of Apparel Search, is a person that has celebrity status and is
often watched and judged for what they wear. Here are a few
more fashion celebs that you can review.
