Angelina Jolie, the Ultimate Red Carpet Goddess

Angelina Jolie turned 40 on June 4

10 times we've wanted to be Jolie
Angelina Jolie turned 40 on June 4, and there are countless reasons to celebrate her! She's an Oscar-winning actress, an international humanitarian, and a cancer-prevention advocate—not to mention a mother to six gorgeous children with husband Brad Pitt.

But you know what else she is? The ultimate red carpet goddess! She loves color, rocks sparkles better than Taylor Swift, and knows how to work the hell out of her hourglass silhouette. In short, she is a fashionista's fantasy.

Which is exactly why we've rounded up her best style moments, so you, too, can revel in her sartorial glory. Scroll down to see the 10 times we've wanted to be Jolie on the red carpet (with the occasional appearance from her delicious husband, Mr. Pitt).

Olive Green Max Azria Atelier in 2008

Angelina Jolie arrive at the Kung Fu Panda Premiere at Palais des Festivals during the 61st International Cannes Film Festival on May 15 ,

Caramel Chiffon Versace in 2009

Black Leather Michael Kors in 2009

Angelina Jolie arrives at the Los Angeles Premiere "Inglorious Basterds" at Grauman's Chinese Theatre on August 10, 2009 in Hollywood, California.

Classic bombshell Angie (at the Inglourious Basterds premiere in Los Angeles), being the badass she is. What else is there to say?

Scarlet Versace in 2010

At the Moscow premiere of Salt. Ayyyy, mami!

Red-Accented White Atelier Versace in 2012

Angelina Jolie arrives at the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on January 15, 2012.

At the Golden Globes, it was all about the red accents—down to her perfectly painted crimson pout.

Black Velvet Atelier Versace in 2012

Angelina Jolie arrives at the 84th Annual Academy Awards held at the Hollywood & Highland Center on February 26, 2012 in Hollywood,

As if anyone could forget the Oscars dress that started the meme! Lots have tried that pose since, none have succeeded.

Dove Gray Ralph & Russo in 2012

Angelina Jolie attends 'In the Land Of Blood And Honey' Pairs premiere on February 16, 2012 in Paris, France.

Jolie rarely does sweet, but she did it oh so well at the Paris premiere of In the Land of Blood and Honey, where she donned this soft, one-sleeved dress, complete with a hand-dyed, organza rosebud on one shoulder.

Black and White Saint Laurent in 2014

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt attend the EE British Academy Film Awards 2014 at The Royal Opera House on February 16, 2014 in London,

Licorice Atelier Versace in 2014

Angelina Jolie arrives at the World Premiere Of Disney's "Maleficent" at the El Capitan Theatre on May 28, 2014 in Hollywood,

Last, but possibly most magnificent, the actress premiered her blockbuster hit Maleficent in L.A. wearing a doozy of a villainess dress: a structured number made out of rubberized silk, gathered at one hip to create a statement skirt. Talk about dressing for the occasion. Go eat your hearts out, Disney princesses.

Honorable Mention: Cream Ralph & Russo Couture in 2014

Angelina Jolie attends the UK Premiere of "Unbroken" at Odeon Leicester Square on November 25, 2014 in London, England.

Because she made the case for the mini-cape in this moment! And thanks to that touch, the ensemble, which she wore to the London
premiere of Unbroken, had a military feel—particularly fitting, as she invited a group of uniform-clad veterans to join her at the
event. Once again, #Goddess.
