Look for Less: Angelina Jolie's Black Leather Mini

Nothing says sexy like a black leather mini dress...especially if being rocked by Hollywood's own badass seductress, Angelina Jolie. Her red carpet look at the 2009 Inglourious Basterds premiere (starring hubby Brad Pitt) channeled a modern day femme fetale that inspires our secret desires to be a crime-fighting CIA agent, riding on a motorcycle through a crowded street in Tokyo. 

To complement the simple, yet sultry, LBD, Angie rocked matching black T-strap heels and a garnet ring for some subtle bling-age. While the star dropped a whopping $3,295 on this style, the total look can be found for those of us on a budget. Keep reading for where to shop!

Why this works...

 Let's face it, leather can be hard to pull off (not because it sticks to your body, but because it walks the fine line between sexy and tacky). In order to stay sophisticated, keep to a simple silhouette and keep the length appropriate. The more jewelry you add here, the more you take away from the dress. With something this sexy, just one piece of jewelry and a subdued pair of heels works perfectly. Hair is best left down in loose waves to soften the overall style (keeps from looking too dominatrix-y) with a clean make-up look to let your natural beauty shine through. Now all you need is a secret mission, a really cool car, and some bad guys to capture (after you seduce them, ofcourse).
