Angelina Jolie Owns the Gray Power Suit for Her World Refugee Day Speech
If the third time marks a trend, then we should see even more of Angelina Jolie in this color in the coming weeks. The actress and activist stepped out for World Refugee Day in Washington, D.C., on Monday in an all-gray power suit, marking at least her third monochromatic look in the shade this year.
Jolie appeared poised and powerful in a peplum V-neck suit jacket with a knee-length pencil skirt and black pumps. With her dark brown strands pulled back into a half-up 'do, the mom-of-six looked ready for business.
On the day’s agenda: a speech alongside Secretary of State John Kerry in the U.S. Department of State's Treaty Room to discuss the world refugee crisis. Jolie, a special envoy for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, delivered her words after an introduction by Kerry.
“I ask people to understand that with 65 million people displaced by conflict, we are facing a world of wars we cannot ignore or turn our backs on. To do that would be naïve, irresponsible, and dangerous,” she said. “Today, partly in response to this crisis, we are seeing rising intolerance and xenophobia. But strength lies in mastering and channeling our emotions so that we pursue policies that reduce—not inflame—threats to our security.” Watch her full speech here:
