Angelina Jolie once again claimed the spotlight as she attended the 16th Rome Film Festival screening of her new film The Eternals in the Italian capital on Sunday evening.
The celebrated actress was accompanied by daughters Shiloh, 15, and Zahara, 16, as she greeted a wave of photographers after making her way onto the star-studded red carpet.
Opting for a bold silver dress with a distinctive strapless detail, Angelina, 46, inevitably commanded attention during the latest promotional pitstop for her new Marvel adventure.

Angelina’s shimmering strapless gown clung to her phenomenal frame and boasted a subtle train as well as faux-wrap detailing.

Both daughters looked gorgeous in their red-carpet attire, with Zahara opting for a white, Grecian-inspired gown while Shiloh chose a black knee-length frock teamed with yellow animal print high-tops.
Kit Harington, 34 – who plays Dane Whitman in the upcoming superhero film – scrubbed up nicely as he hit the red carpet.

Meanwhile, last year, Shiloh’s father Brad Pitt was said to be ‘so proud of Shiloh and who she had become’ as he celebrated the teenager’s 14th birthday.
‘Brad is so proud of Shiloh and who she has become,’ a source told Entertainment Tonight. ‘He loves that she always stays true to herself and is so good to her brothers and sisters.’
Meanwhile, Angelina spoke out about Shiloh’s androgynous dress sense, saying her daughter considered herself to be ‘one of the brothers’.
‘She wants to be a boy,’ she told Vanity Fair in 2011. ‘So we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys’ everything. She thinks she’s one of the brothers.’
Apparently coining a new fashion term, she said: ‘Shiloh, we feel, has Montenegro style. She dresses like a little dude. It’s how people dress there. She likes tracksuits, she likes [regular] suits.’
Back in 2008 it was revealed that Shiloh had requested she be addressed as John since the age of two.

Brad told Oprah Winfrey: ‘She only wants to be called John. John or Peter. So it’s a Peter Pan thing. So we’ve got to call her John. “Shi, do you want…” “John. I’m John.” And then I’ll say, “John, would you like some orange juice?” And she goes, “No!”
‘So, you know, it’s just that kind of stuff that’s cute to parents and it’s probably really obnoxious to other people.’
Addressing the name change at the time, Angelina said that there was no need to ‘interpret’ anything from the request.

In an interview with The Daily Mail, Angelina said: ‘I don’t think it’s for the world to interpret anything. She likes to dress like a boy and wants her hair cut like a boy and she wanted to be called John for a while.
‘Some kids wear capes and want to be Superman and she wants to be like her brothers. It’s who she is. It’s been a surprise to us and it’s really interesting, but she’s so much more than that – she’s funny and sweet and pretty. But she does love a tie…’
