Shiloh Jolie-Pitt Just Did This For The First Time On The Red Carpet

The Angelina Jolie-Brad Pitt brood of kids, whose parents have been embroiled in a divorce court battle since 2016, has long been known for its diversity. Aside from half being adopted from countries around the world, they have recently grown into their own identities. For instance, Hola! called Zahara Jolie-Pitt a Jolie "fashion mini-me" for favoring V-shaped neckline dresses, while son Pax Jolie-Pitt was described by The Sun as Jolie's "shadow" and "quite protective" of his mom.

As for daughter Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, Brad told Oprah Winfrey in 2008 (via People) that she "only wants to be called John. John or Peter. So it's a Peter Pan thing." Despite Shiloh's choice of name, Angelina told the Daily Mail at the time that she and Brad didn't read into it much. "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," she said, frankly.

In addition to her fluidity of names, Shiloh has been documented by fashion blogs over the years for choosing androgynous wear and haircuts. "Some kids wear capes and want to be Superman and she wants to be like her brothers," Jolie told the Daily Mail while insisting there was "so much more" to her daughter than this. "But she does love a tie," the actor-director admitted at the time. That's why Shiloh's appearance at October 18's premiere of Marvel Studios' "Eternals" was a surprise.

Shiloh Jolie-Pitt rocked a different look at the Eternals premiere

Shiloh Jolie-Pitt donned a dress on the red carpet for the first time whilst attending mom Angelina Jolie's premiere for "Eternals" on October 18, per the Daily Mail. With her trademark pixie cut grown out and worn in a bun, Shiloh looked effortlessly chic in a tan, asymmetrically hemmed spaghetii-strapped dress and white flats. Quite the departure from her days of sporting bow ties in public, the teenager also rocked dainty gold bracelets on both ankles as she posed for photos with her mom and siblings. 

Jolie, one of the ensemble film's stars, told Vanity Fair (via the Today Show) in 2010 that Shiloh's androgynous sense of fashion back then reminded her of herself at that age. Revealing she dresses Shiloh "like a little dude," Jolie said she think's Shiloh's style is representative of the trends in Montenegro. "It's how people dress there. She likes tracksuits, she likes [regular] suits. She likes to dress like a boy. She wants to be a boy. So we had to cut her hair. She likes to wear boys' everything. She thinks she's one of the brothers." 

As for her father, Brad Pitt, a source told Entertainment Tonight in 2020 as Shiloh turned 14 that he "loves that she always stays true to herself and is so good to her brothers and sisters." Given all the courtroom drama unraveling between the Pitt and Jolie camps, we are glad the Jolie-Pitt kids appear to be adjusting and staying true to themselves.

All eyes have always been on Shiloh Jolie-Pitt

As the first biological child of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt has remained a constant fixture for public discourse since her birth in 2006. It was that year that both Brad and Angelina decided to switch up their paparazzi strategy. Knowing that the media would be hounding "Brangelina" down in light of their firstborn, the two A-list stars retreated to the African country of Namibia, where daughter Shiloh was born.

"I walked in the room and it was so overwhelming I had to walk out," Angelina's brother, James Haven told People at the time of Shiloh's birth. "To see the father, mother, daughter–it was such a beautiful image that it overtook me." Haven also recalled talking to Brangelina's adopted son, Maddox, and revealed ​​"he imitated the way Brad held her just perfectly," and when asked what he thought of Shiloh, Maddox stated, "She's beautiful."

Haven opened up further about Maddox's reaction to getting a younger sister. Maddox, who was just 4 years old at the time, was clearly aware and elated for the arrival of Shiloh, despite his young age. "Angie obviously got him prepared," Haven revealed. "He knew exactly what was going on. He was very ready to welcome her into the world."

Shiloh Jolie-Pitt's baby pictures cost a pretty penny

Being the firstborn child of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, of course Shiloh Jolie-Pitt's arrival in the world would be groundbreaking — not just in terms of parenthood for Brangelina, but also for the paparazzi, who were obsessed with the couple at the height of their romantic popularity. In a 2006 article from Newsweek, the outlet examined a number of celebrities who "Make America Great" (what a difference a decade makes...).

The list featured Brad, whose creative media strategy in drawing paparazzi out to Namibia for Shiloh's birth helped shine a light on the country's impoverished nature. Well aware that the price for his daughter's baby pictures would be astronomical, Pitt told the outlet, "Knowing that someone was going to hound us for that first photo — and was going to profit immensely for doing it — I just couldn't live with it." He further added, "We were able to turn that around and collect millions for people who are really going to need it."

According to a 2009 report from Forbes, Shiloh's baby pictures retailed at around $4.1 million at the time of her birth! Despite such a high price, her baby pictures ranked third on the outlet's list of most expensive baby pics. Who took the top spot, you ask? Brangelina's twins, Vivienne Marcheline & Knox Leon! The two were born in 2008 and their baby pictures combined reportedly cost somewhere between $11 and $15 million. Per CNN, the earnings were likewise donated to the Jolie-Pitt foundation.
