An emotional Angelina Jolie was honoured with the Heart of Sarajevo Award yesterday, for her work on her directorial debut, In the Land of Milk and Honey - a film set during the Bosnian war.

The actress had arrived unannounced to the 17th annual Sarajevo Film Festival, with Brad Pitt along for support.

Dressed in a flowing peach Elie Saab gown, the 36-year-old was visibly moved to receive a standing ovation.

"I will start crying if you don't stop," she said of the raptuous applause. "I told Brad in the car I was afraid I was going to cry."

"I am so honoured to be here at this festival. There is no greater example of the strengths of the artists and the festival that began during the war and grew stronger every year."

Style Evolution - Angelina Jolie

From a bisexual, knife carrying wild child to a humanitarian activist and mother of six, Angelina Jolie's life has changed tremendously in the decade since her unsettling portrayal of Lisa Rowe in Girl, Interrupted catapulted her to superstardom. Not surprisingly, as her personal life transformed, so did her wardrobe. With her 34th major film, The Changeling, hitting theaters this week Stylelist took a look back at the female half of Brangelina's style.

In 1986 legendary actor Jon Voight walked the red carpet at the 58th Annual Academy Awards with his unknown 10-year-old daughter Angelia Jolie Voight. If Jolie had realised all that white lace would haunt her forever she may have picked a more subtle dress!

Still a Daddy's girl, Jolie attended the 25th anniversary celebration of Midnight Cowboy (her father's most famous film) in 1994 wearing leather instead of lace.

With two major films under her belt, Hackers (where she met her first husband Jonny Lee Miller) and Foxfire, 22-year-old Jolie boldly rocked a shaved head and a little black dress at the premiere performance of Fedora in 1997.

Still a wild child, Jolie stuck to black while promoting her critically acclaimed HBO film Gia in 1998.

A nominee for the second year in a row (in 1997 for George Wallace and 1998 for Gia), Jolie lightened up her colour palette for the 50th Annual Emmy Awards in 1998.

For the 56th Annual Golden Globe Awards in 1999 Jolie went for an uncharacteristically girly champagne sequin gown.

For the 5th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards in 1999 Jolie lightened her hair colour and walked the red carpet looking very reminiscent of Marylin Monroe.

A practitioner of method acting, Jolie was back in a dark place for her breakout role in 1999's Girl Interrupted. The disturbing intensity she brought to the part carried on to the red carpet for the film's L.A. premiere.

At 24-years-old Jolie had two Emmy Awards, two Golden Globes and in 2000 she added an Oscar to her trophy list. Unfortunately her Elvira-like outfit and a proclamation of love for her brother garnered even more attention than her achievement.
