Angelina Jolie dressed like European Royalty in a conservative white dress with a cape-like top at the London premiere of her epic movie “Unbroken,” featuring the life of Olympic runner and World War II hero Louis “Louie” Zamperini.

But Jolie, 38, look like she took styling tips from the Duchess of Cornwall instead of the Duchess of Cambridge.

Her cream-colored Ralph & Russo midi-dressed featured what’s known as a bow-topped capelet, or mini-cape. Some nuns show more skin.

With her hair pulled back she could have passed for Princess Letizia, only less contemporary. The only incongruity in her look were her gnarly tattoos on each forearm.

Jolie may have been pandering to her Anglophilism, or was just caught up in the pomp of the moment. The premiere featured a number of servicemen in uniform.

Jolie produced and directed the film based on the 2010 Laura Hillenbrand biography, “Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption.”

Zamperini was born in New York to Italian immigrants in 1917 and competed in the 1936 Olympics in Berlin. The games showcased Hitler’s Third Reich and were notable for Jesse Owens’ Gold-medal winning performance.

During the War, Zamperini’s B-24 bomber was shot down over the Pacific and he spent 47 days in a life raft. He was rescued by the Japanese and spent two and a half years in a POW camp. He was routinely tortured because of his Olympic fame.

Zamperini died earlier this year. He was 97.

The movie premiered in Sydney Nov. 17 and opens worldwide on Christmas Day. Check out Angelina’s photos and see a trailer for the movie.
