Angelina Jolie had a glamorous Friday night. 

The 42-year-old actress could not have looked more elegant while stepping out for the 2017 U.N. Correspondents Association Awards at Cipriani Wall Street restaurant in New York City, where she was honored as the 2017 UNCA Global Citizen of the Year.

Jolie stunned as she exited the event in a strapless black-and-white gown, accessorizing her look with striking black gloves -- but she wasn't alone. The mother of six brought several of her children along; 14-year-old Pax, 12-year-old Zahara, 11-year-old Shiloh and 9-year-old Knox were also seen all dressed up alongside their mother. 16-year-old Maddox and 9-year-old Vivienne, meanwhile, appeared to stay home.

Jolie recently opened up about her split from Brad Pitt, explaining that she thought working together on 2015's By the Sea would help them "communicate." 

"A piece of art can be something that's healing or something that's difficult," she said on The Hollywood Reporter's podcast Awards Chatter. "I don't know. I'm glad we did that film because we did explore something together. Whatever it was maybe it didn't solve certain things, but we did communicate something that needed to be communicated to each other."
