Professor Angelina Jolie is already giving lectures at the London School of Econ.

Professor Angelina Jolie is already giving lectures at the London School of Econ.
I've been looking for an excuse to post more BAFTA photos of Angelina Jolie looking like the goth goddess of my goth teenage dreams. We don't talk about this enough: Angelina is super-committed to being pale these days. In her 20s, that wasn't the case. In her 20s, she wasn't this pale – she went out in the sun, she got tan, she might have even fake-tanned. But throughout her 30s and now into her 40s, she's just going all in on being pale. I'm into it. I just wish her lipstick was a tad darker here.

Angelina likely flew into London on Sunday, the day of the BAFTAs. I thought maybe she flew right back to LA, but no – as it turns out, she stayed in London because she had to give a lecture for her Masters Course at the London School of Economics. Professor Jolie, educator.

Angelina Jolie is back in the classroom! The 42-year-old Oscar winner gave a seminar Monday to students taking the Masters Course in Women, Peace and Security at the London School of Economics and Political Science, where Jolie is serving as a visiting professor in practice. The class is part of a series of extra-curricular seminars called 'Women, Peace and Security In Practice,' which are designed to give students an insight into the realities of working on gender equality in conflict-affected settings.

Besides speaking about her work as an UNHCR Special Envoy and as co-founder of the Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative (PSVI), Jolie took questions from the students on everything from the importance of accountability for human rights violations against women in conflict to the link between violence against women and gender inequality.

A source close to Jolie tells PEOPLE, 'She found it very helpful to be able to sit with the students and debate different concerns for women internationally, and different views on ways forward. She hopes not just to be able to teach them, but also to work with them in the months to come, to shape ideas together on ways to improve the global situation for women.'

The mother of six also updated the class on developments on PSVI, the work being done with NATO to strengthen military training and practices; and the work being done to prevent crimes against women and girls and ensure their participation in all aspects of peacekeeping and peace-building.

Jolie has been teaching a master class at LSE's Centre for Women, Peace and Security since September. The 9-month course, which runs through May 2018, focuses on 'the ways in which women and gender are understood in relation to, and affected by, regional, national and global peace and security processes in conflict and post-conflict setting,' according to the school's website.

With the Jolie-Pitt divorce, a lot of people assumed that Angelina's professor gig was basically canceled, but as it turns out, she's been lecturing at the London School of Economics whenever she's in town. That explains a lot, actually. She's been stopping over in London a few times in the past few months, and now we know: she's been giving lectures and leading Socratic-method discussions about women in conflict. How would you feel, as a student, if Professor Jolie walked into your classroom, with her goth beauty and her tattoos and red nails straight from the BAFTAs' I think I would be into it.

Angelina Jolie in Ralph and Russo at the BAFTAs: stunning or too severe?
I idly wondered if we were going to see Angelina Jolie pop up for some kind of photo-op now that Jennifer Aniston is getting some headlines. It happened all the time, and it continues to happen all the time, like some kind of circle of Hell: Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie can't help themselves. They always have to step on each other's newscycles. I actually forgot that Jolie was going to attend two events this weekend: the BAFTAs and the American Society of Cinematographers Awards over the weekend. For the ASCAs, it was announced a while back that Jolie would receive their Board of Governors Award, so' it was on her schedule long before JustJen's marriage went kaput. This is more of a happy accident than Uncool Bermuda Triangle Stratergy!

Let's start with her BAFTAs look, this black Ralph & Russo gown. Jolie has worn Ralph and Russo for years, long before Meghan Markle took the label next-level as far as 'household name designers.' While it's black and not crazy-notable, I like it because of the simple lines and the fact that it's done impeccably. If you're going to wear a simple black gown, make sure it's done beautifully. She wore black for Time's Up, just as she did at the Golden Globes. My one qualm about this look as a whole is that I think Jolie's hair is pulled too tight. I'm all for a simple, chic updo. But this is too severe. Love the statement earrings, the diamond ring and the red nails though. VAMP!!

As for the ASCAs, Angelina attended the event, briefly walked the red carpet, and posed with Australian cinematographer Dean Semler, the Aussie cinematographer who has worked with Angelina as an actress (The Bone Collector, Maleficent) and as a director (In the Land of Blood and Honey). He seemed pleased to present the award to Angelina. Jolie didn't wear a bright color, because that's not her thing. If she's not wearing black or white, she's usually going for a neutral or a metallic. She wore this sort of beige-y/fleshy/sparkly Elie Saab gown which' it's not really a bad dress but it's not very good either. Post-divorce, my wish is that she hires a new stylist who rips all of the beige sack dresses from her hands and forces her to wear red, purple and blue all the time.

Angelina Jolie wore a caped coat to visit the Louvre with all six kids
Over the weekend, Angelina Jolie was in Jordan, visiting a Syrian refugee camp with her daughters Shiloh and Zahara. The coverage of the visit mentioned that Jolie's other kids were in France. I wondered – in that post – if Jolie and the kids were staying at the Chateau Miraval, which is located in the South of France. They were not! They were in Paris! Angelina, Shiloh and Zahara reunited with Maddox, Pax, Vivienne and Knox on Tuesday, and the entire crew went to the Louvre. Apparently, they spent the whole day there.

From the way Angelina is dressed – THAT CAPE! – I would suspect that she had other things on her itinerary besides a trip to the Louvre, but you never know. Her style is all over the place these days, she might have just gotten all dressed up for a day with the kids. I love the caped coat, by the way. I love the fact that she's wearing black heels instead of her beloved-yet-much-maligned nude heels. My favorite part of this outfit is probably her sunglasses though. I want those! I'm sure they cost a million dollars though.

As for the kids…how handsome is Pax' He dresses like Brad and carries himself like Brad, and he could easily be a model, I think.

Angelina Jolie in Ralph & Russo at the Critics Choice Awards: feathered nonsense?
Angelina Jolie attended last night's Critics Choice Awards because First They Killed My Father was nominated for Best Foreign Film. I had to look it up online to see if the film won – it did not – because the Critics Choice Awards were shambolic and disorganized. I guess it doesn't really matter – Angelina is just enjoying the ride, and she's not going to these awards shows to win, she's just going to support her film and have some fun. Incidentally, she was also nominated for a BAFTA this week (for Foreign Film).

Angelina attended the Critics Choice Awards with writer Loung Ung, who wrote the memoir First They Killed My Father. They had fun posing together on the carpet! It was cute. Not so cute' Angelina's style. I mean' I have this idea of Angelina, that when she's really trying to be glamorous, her idea of glam is kind of tacky and showgirl. This Ralph and Russo dress is kind of a mess, with the big feathered bust. Angelina paired it with the worst pair of satin bridesmaid's shoes ever. Still, everything from the neck up is lovely.

Meanwhile, the tabloids this week are trying to start a rumor that Angelina is getting involved with a Cambodian filmmaker named PraCh Ly. Jolie's people shut it down to People.

Angelina Jolie is single and not interested in dating, a source tells PEOPLE.

'She isn't dating anyone and won't be for a very long time. She is focused on her children and their needs,' the source says.

Recent rumors linked Jolie to Cambodian lyricist and filmmaker PraCh Ly, but the source tells PEOPLE that the rapper 'is a friend.' 'She respects his work,' the source adds.

[From People]

Sure. I believe that right now, she's just focused on the kids and their schedules and all of that. But in a year' I do hope that she starts dating at some point. Do it for the gossip, please, Angelina.

Angelina Jolie wore black Valentino to the National Board of Review Awards
Just FYI, I think I'm going to end up writing like three or four stories about the photos from the National Board of Review awards last night, because sh-t got LIT, fashion-wise and gossip-wise. I had forgotten this, but the NBR recognized Angelina's First They Killed My Father with the Freedom of Expression Award. They also gave the Freedom of Expression Award to John Ridley's Let It Fall: Los Angeles, 1982-1992. FTKMF was not recognized as the NBR's Best Foreign Film or even one of their 'top foreign films,' but I guess they wanted to give Jolie some kind of recognition. So Angelina did turn up, with her daughters Shiloh and Zahara, and with Loung Ung (from whose memoir the film is based).

First, the fashion notes' Angelina has been waiting for the #WhyWeWearBlack movement for a long time. I bet you she wears all-black the whole year! In solidarity, of course, but also because that's her default anyway. She actually wore a great black dress – this is by Valentino. It's sacky and lovely. She paired it with Barollo Italy shoes and Forevermark earrings.

I don't have the IDs on what Zahara and Shiloh were wearing, but it looks like Shiloh wore a great little tuxedo (with no tie) and Zahara got an elegant black dress pantsuit. Shiloh's arm was in a sling – apparently, Angelina took the kids to Lake Tahoe for the holidays, and Shiloh broke her collarbone while skiing. Shiloh often comes across – in Angelina's interviews – as the most adventurous of all the kids, and the possibly the most sporty. She was probably on the ski slopes, pretending she was Shaun White and' oh well. The kid seems to be fine! Reportedly, Shiloh's broken collarbone is why Maddox wasn't Angelina's date to the Golden Globes – Maddox stayed home with Shi, and Pax was his mom's date.

Here's part of her speech – I wish I had the full video!

Angelina Jolie wore a fab, feathered black Versace to the Golden Globes
I was super-excited to see Angelina Jolie at the 2018 Golden Globes, and she did not disappoint. Jolie hasn't attended a major awards show – Globes, SAGs, Oscars – in a few years. She's had other sh-t on her plate, and yes, she hadn't been invited as a nominee in recent years. I would assume she gets constant invites to present, and this year, she decided to take them up. Plus, First They Killed My Father was nominated (it did not win). Jolie brought her son Pax as her date!

Angelina Jolie kept it simple in grey & white ahead of the Golden Globes
Here are some photos of Angelina Jolie in Hollywood on Saturday. She attended the American Cinematheque and Hollywood Foreign Press Association-sponsored event for the Foreign Language nominees. She didn't bring along her kids, or if she did, they didn't walk the carpet. She did the carpet with Loung Ung (whose memoir was the basis for the film), and producer Rithy Panh. She posed with other directors too, which just reminded me that she's the only female director nominated for anything at the Golden Globes. #GlobesBoysClub

Angelina wore a relatively simple ensemble – a conservative full skirt in a charcoal grey, a simple white blouse and a grey wrap. And those f–king nude heels, which just anger me. I swear to God, Angelina's shoe game is worse than the Duchess of Cambridge's. Jolie looks pretty-but-tired, and I still believe that post-Brad, the Jolie-Pitt kids are the ones who are styling her. I think the kids want her to dress more conservatively – no black leather, no vamp style, nothing low-cut. I bring this up because Angelina will be at the Golden Globes tonight. She's nominated for Best Foreign Film – she'll probably lose – and she's scheduled as a presenter. I think she'll probably be wearing black, meaning she'll be participating in the Globes Blackout. But will she wear the Time's Up pin' I don't know. I feel like her black gown will probably be pretty conservative and simple too.

Notably, Jolie's First They Killed My Father didn't even make the first shortlist for the Best Foreign Film Oscar nominations. I wasn't too broken up about that, although I will be disappointed if we only see Angelina at the Globes during this awards season. I would love it if she was invited to be a presenter at the Oscars.

Check out Angelina's ring! This is very pretty. I generally think her preferred jewelry style is chunky '70s style, but this looks like an Art Deco piece. Interesting.

Jennifer Aniston & Angelina Jolie have signed up to present at the Golden Globes
FINALLY SOME FUN GOSSIP TODAY. I'm so tired of the gut-wrenching revelations from Michael Wolff's Trump book, and I was in dire need of some fun celebrity crap, and here it is: the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is going to give us some old-school Uncool Bermuda-Triangle Dramz!! Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston have both signed on as presenters at the Golden Globes on Sunday. GOOD. I HOPE THEY PRESENT TOGETHER. I HOPE THE LEG OF DOOM COMES OUT TO PLAY.

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has been slowly rolling out the list of presenters for the 2018 Golden Globes, and in the last day, four new actresses have been added to the mix: Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Jolie, Helen Mirren and Emma Stone. Aniston and Jolie, who share a mutual ex in Brad Pitt, rarely attend the same events'but this year’s award ceremony is all about women coming together, thanks to the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements, and it’s message is bigger than the tabloid stories they’ve both worked so hard to ignore over the years.

Aniston recently donated $500,000 to the Time’s Up GoFundMe campaign; the money is going toward a legal defense fund, providing subsidized assistance to men and women who suffer sexual abuse, assault or harassment while at work'regardless of the industry they all work in.

Jolie, meanwhile, was among the dozens of actresses who publicly spoke out against disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein. “I had a bad experience with Harvey Weinstein in my youth, and as a result, chose never to work with him again and warn others when they did,” Jolie told The New York Times. “This behavior towards women in any field, any country is unacceptable.”

[From E! News]

I don't have any doubt that both Jolie and Aniston will be wearing black. Jolie's black dress will probably be of the sack variety, while Aniston's black dress will probably have a few sparkles, maybe a side-slit to the thigh. Aniston will come to the Globes with Justin Theroux, and Angelina will either go solo, or she'll bring one of her kids, maybe. That might not be the worst idea for her – if she brings Maddox as her date, there won't be the same kind of 'OMG UNCOOL DRAMA' around the Globe stories. Anyway, this is just something to look forward to on Sunday' vintage gossip, almost. Will they be seated close to each other' Will they say anything to each other' Will the camera find Jolie's face when Aniston is on the stage and vice versa' It's almost a sweet relief to talk about this kind of thing.

Angelina Jolie's 'FTKMF' wasn't shortlisted for the Best Foreign Film Oscar
Angelina Jolie brought all of her kids to New York last week. Jolie was still shilling for her Cambodian film, First They Killed My Father, and doing press and events for promotion. Friday night, Jolie and all of the kids attended the 2017 UN Correspondents Association Awards at the Cipriani's – Jolie was decked out in a strapless black satin dress with some kind of white feature at the back (it looked like a bow with a train). It seemed like a frigid, windy night and Jolie was not dressed for it, as evidenced by these photos. Her kids seem to be trying to help their mom get to the car quickly as they made their exit from Cipriani's. Jolie attended the event – with her kids – because she won the 2017 UNCA Global Citizen of the Year Award.

Speaking of awards, it sounds like Jolie's big Oscar campaign has already come to an end. Last week, the Academy released their 'shortlist' for Best Foreign Film, and First They Killed My Father did not make the list of nine. Neither did the highly acclaimed French film BPM, which premiered at this year's Cannes to a lot of emotion and controversy (it's a mostly true story about the start of the AIDS crisis in France). Jolie's FTKMF did get a Golden Globe nomination and that will probably be the last we see of her during the awards season' unless she's invited to present at the Oscars or something, which might happen, you never know. I'm a little bit disappointed to see that the Academy didn't shortlist FTKMF, but I also think it might be a blessing in disguise: a real, substantial Oscar push would have brought up more uncomfortable questions and Jolie didn't know how to answer the questions she was getting.

PS' I honestly believe her kids are styling her these days for events. Like, Zahara and Pax are carefully selecting Jolie's dresses and gowns and they have veto power on the sack dresses.

Angelina Jolie coauthors Guardian op-ed with NATO sec-general Jens Stoltenberg
For a decade, Angelina Jolie was the Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commission on Refugees. In 2012, her title was upgraded to Special Envoy for the UNHCR, likely as a way to reflect and reward her work with the agency on behalf of refugees around the world. Angelina has always known that her work doesn't begin and end with the UNHCR, and over the past decade especially, she's branched out by founding her own charities, foundations and organizations to do on-the-ground work in certain countries and to highlight certain causes which needed more attention and energy. One of those causes was preventing sexual violence in conflict. Jolie created a initiative, launched a summit in London on the subject, and she's been doing a ton of work outside of the UNHCR on the initiative, and now she's got someone pretty powerful on her side: the NATO Secretary General, Jens Stoltenberg. Stoltenberg and Jolie coauthored a Guardian op-ed on the subject of preventing sexual violence in conflict – go here to read the full piece.

All violence against women betrays the fundamental promise in the UN Charter of equal rights and dignity for women. It is one of the prime reasons why women remain in a subordinate position in relation to men in most parts of the world. When this violence is committed as an act of war it tears apart families, creates mass displacement, and makes peace and reconciliation far harder to achieve. In fact, it is often designed expressly to achieve those goals as part of a military strategy.

Despite being prohibited by international law, sexual violence continues to be employed as a tactic of war in numerous conflicts from Myanmar to Ukraine and Syria to Somalia. It includes mass rape, gang rape, sexual slavery, and rape as a form of torture, ethnic cleansing and terrorism. It accounts in large part for why it is often more dangerous to be a woman in a warzone today than it is to be a soldier.

In our different roles we have seen how conflicts in which women's bodies and rights are systematically abused last longer, cause deeper wounds and are much harder to resolve and overcome. Ending gender-based violence is therefore a vital issue of peace and security as well as of social justice. The Nato Alliance was founded to safeguard not just the security but also the freedom of its peoples: in the words of President Harry Truman, as 'a shield against aggression and the fear of aggression'.

For nearly 70 years Nato has stood for collective defence against military threats. But also for the defence of democracy, individual liberty, the rule of law and the UN Charter. We believe that Nato has the responsibility and opportunity to be a leading protector of women's rights. In particular, we believe Nato can become the global military leader in how to prevent and respond to sexual violence in conflict, drawing on the strengths and capabilities of its member states and working with its many partner countries.

Over the coming months we will be working together and with others to identify ways in which Nato can strengthen its contribution to women's protection and participation in all aspects of conflict-prevention and resolution.

[From The Guardian]

The piece then goes on to list the ways NATO can and will target the issue of sexual violence in conflict. NATO plans to 'integrate gender issues into its strategic thinking as part of its values and reinforcing a culture of the integration of women throughout the organization including in leadership positions.' Meaning, they plan to hire more women. They plan to raise the standards of how Allied countries' militaries are trained, and how they help train militaries around the world. They have developed new standard operating procedures for soldiers in the field, which will be taught in pre-deployment training. NATO will be adding more 'gender advisers' in the field, in conflict zones, to ensure that women can come forward and speak about what is happening to them. NATO also plans to collect data on all of this, which might sound like a weird thing to include, but data makes the world go 'round. Can I just say' Angelina is so big-league.
