Angelina Jolie Puddle Pants, Platforms, and a Key Coat Trend to Get Groceries

If I were to see Angelina Jolie at the grocery store, I would want her to be wearing exactly what she was photographed in while leaving the grocery store over the weekend. Her chic, minimal style can certainly be casual and comfortable, but it’s never sloppy—even when she’s doing something as low-key as making a grocery store stop.

Not only was Jolie’s outfit low-key, it was actually quite trendy. The trends she combined were puddle pants (baggy, wide-leg pants that are long enough to pool around the ankles), platforms, and a maxi-length coat. Leave it to Jolie to make trendy pieces look oh so understated. She did so by choosing neutral colors and wearing minimal accessories, which will help you, too, to achieve the low-key trendy look shes’ done an impressive job of perfecting.

Scroll to shop the three chic trends Jolie combined for her grocery store visit.

Courtside Fans Wear Shirts Protesting Kyrie Irving’s Antisemitic Comments

Irving came under fire last week for his recent promotion of an antisemitic film and book on social media.

Unchecked: Kyrie Irving May Not Be Long For the NBA (TV-G; 1:30)

A group of fans wearing “Fight Antisemitism” shirts sat courtside at Monday’s Nets game in protest of Kyrie Irving following the guard’s recent promotion of an antisemitic film and book on social media.

The group, consisting of two women and six men wearing yarmulkes, sat near the visitors’ bench at Barclays Center for Brooklyn’s contest against the Pacers. At one point, Irving acknowledged the fans with a thumbs-up, though it’s unknown at this time if the 30-year-old directed any remarks toward the group.

After the game, a 116-109 Nets win, the team announced Irving would not be speaking with the media.

Irving came under fire late last week after an article published Friday by Rolling Stone drew awareness to his promotion of the film, Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America. According to Rolling Stone, the book, which is based on a 2015 book of the same name, is “stuffed with antisemitic tropes.”

The NBA and Nets owner Joe Tsai issued statements denouncing Irving’s remarks immediately following the news.

On Saturday, Irving, who also tweeted a link to the film’s Amazon on Thursday, defended his endorsement in a tweet saying that he “meant no disrespect” by doing so.

“The ‘Anti-Semitic’ label that is being pushed on me is not justified and does not reflect the reality or truth I live in everyday,” Irving wrote on Twitter. “I embrace and want to learn from all walks of life and religions.”

That same day, Irving reiterated his views in a press conference after the Nets’ 125-116 home loss to the Pacers.

“Did I do anything illegal? Did I hurt anybody?” Irving asked reporters in regard to the tweet. “Did I harm anybody? Am I going out and saying that I hate one specific group of people?”

He added, “I’m not going to stand down on anything I believe in. I’m only going to get stronger because I’m not alone. I have a whole army around me.”

Astros’ Justin Verlander Explains Why He Flipped Off Phillies Fans

Upon arriving in Philadelphia on Monday, Verlander exchanged some, let’s say, pleasantries with the locals.

The Astros arrived in the City of Brotherly Love and received a fitting welcome as the team standing in the way of the Phillies’ pursuit of a World Series title. As the team arrived at Citizens Bank Park on Monday, Houston starter Justin Verlander was captured on camera reciprocating the feeling toward the locals.

As the Astros’ team bus pulled up, Phillies fans were filming and offering verbal taunts when Verlander flipped the bird through the bus window. As the team departed the bus, Verlander waved toward the camera and gave the bird again with a laugh—much to the delight of the fans on the receiving end of the gesture.

After receiving some online criticism for his act, Verlander posted a tweet saying that the exchange was all in good fun, and that he was simply saying hello to the Philadelphia fans in their “native tongue.”

The presumed favorite to win the American League Cy Young Award, Verlander was knocked around in Game 1, allowing five runs in five innings. He’s currently slated to pitch Game 5 in Philadelphia, and is sure to be the target of plenty of love from Phillies fans who make it out to the ballpark Thursday night.
