Angelina Jolie Shines Her Star Power on Women's Issues
Angelina Jolie was decked out in Gucci last night at the third annual Women in the World Summit conference held at NYC's Lincoln Center. It was International Women's Day and Angelina's on the East Coast to participate in the three-day conference. She is among the impressive group of speakers, including Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, and Diane von Furstenberg. The inspirational leaders are in the Big Apple to discuss a range of topics that include foreign issues, the global economic crisis, and other challenges facing women around the globe. Angelina took the stage to address the crowd, and also took a few moments to catch up with Newsweek and The Daily Beast editor Tina Brown, as well as IMF chief Christine Lagarde.
While Angelina is in Manhattan, the Jolie-Pitt kids are enjoying time in New Orleans with Brad Pitt. Brad took his motorcycle for a spin a few days ago while Shiloh, Zahara, and Maddox walked Jacques, the family bulldog, around the French Quarter. It appears Angelina's next film, Maleficent, is moving full speed ahead. Elle Fanning is reportedly in talks to star opposite Angelina as the heroine of the film, Princess Aurora.
