Angelina Jolie wears a peplum Ralph & Russo top and pencil skirt to receive honorary damehood from the Queen
Angelina Jolie was awarded the honorary damehood from the Queen, for her work against sexual violence, and chose to wear a dove grey peplum top and pencil skirt from Ralph & Russo to receive it. The creation was quite modest with a waist-cinching belt and featured a chiffon silk bow tie. The custom made design was inspired from the Aussie-Brit designers' Spring/Summer 2014 collection, and Angelina paired it with grey peep-toe pumps. The 39 year old was presented with the Insignia of an Honorary Dame Grand Cross of the Most Distinguished Order of St Michael and St George at a private reception at Buckingham Palace. The actress was accompanied to the Palace by her husband, Brad Pitt, and their children, and they were all introduced to the Queen, although they did not have official pictures taken. Because she is a foreign citizen Jolie may not be addressed as Dame, but received the award on an honorary basis for her work at trying to stamp out rape in war zones. It is also unusual for a damehood to be bestowed upon someone so young. The honour is generally bestowed later in life, after a recipient has earned a lower honour such as an OBE or a CBE.
