PVC fashion might be on-trend now but it once cost Angelina Jolie an audition

The actress has admitted that early in her career she failed to secure a part she auditioned for because of her fashion choices.  The shiny PVC material of her pants had "fused together" during her wait to be called to audition.

"At school I wasn't that popular person; I was a punk. I loved leather, PVC and fishnets. Those were my three favourite fabrics in my early 20s. I remember the first time I wore PVC pants I was waiting for an audition, sitting in the sun in LA. By the time it was my turn my pants had fused together. I didn't get the part," says Angelina in an interview with Harper's Bazaar.

But the experience didn't affect Angelina's love for PVC pants because she also recalls wearing a similar outfit when she married her first husband Jonny Lee Miller.
