Angelina Jolie shone at a Maleficent event in London last night (May 8).

The actress and director chose a custom-made Versace gown for the private reception for the new Disney movie at Kensington Palace.

The dramatic gown featured stunning sequin detailing, a plunging neckline, sheer embellished sleeves and a low-V back which showed off her numerous tattoos.

She posed alongside her fiancé Brad Pitt, who looked suitably dapper in a black suit, casually unbuttoned shirt and half-tinted glasses, while wearing his hair slicked back.

Meanwhile, Jolie's co-star Elle Fanning was equally eye-catching as she attended the props and costume exhibition in support of Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Fanning donned a strapless pale lemon Georges Hobeika gown and a matching floral headpiece, looking every inch the Disney princess. 

Maleficent will be released in cinemas on May 28.
