Angelina Jolie jetted out of London’s Heathrow Airport today with her 18-year-old son Pax dressed in the best travel outfit imaginable: pajamas. The actress and humanitarian demonstrated exactly how to make the nightwear appropriate for daytime, pairing her cozy brown silk pajama set with Valentino sandals and aviator sunglasses. Jolie wore her straight brown hair down and carried a black quilted bag with her.
The actress isn’t the only star to embrace pajamas as streetwear lately. Selena Gomez recently wore a Louis Vuitton pajama set out in Paris while promoting Rare Beauty in Europe.
In an interview published on June 14, Jolie spoke to Harper’s Bazaar UK about the impact Pax and his five siblings Maddox, 20; Zahara, 17; Shiloh, 16; and 14-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox, have had on her.
“My children have an impact on every aspect of who I am,” she said. “The moment you become a parent, your life isn’t yours. You don’t know what ‘you’ is; it’s not really about your life anymore, and so you want to represent them, you want to be that model for them; your best self.”
She added that when she doubts herself, she goes to her children for reassurance. “When I have doubts and I don’t know who I am, I’ll sit with them and feel they know me more than anyone knows me,” she said. “And then I see myself, and I see them as good people, interesting people, all very strong individuals, and I think I can’t be all bad, I can’t have made a mess.”
