  • The "Maleficent" star wore a tan dress and sandals for the presentation part of the ceremony

Angelina Jolie still looked fashionable even in a beekeeper's suit.

The "Maleficent" star wore a full beekeeper suit and still managed to look glamorous in it when she presented the diplomas to the graduates of the French Apidology Observatory Wednesday. In the photos obtained by Page Six, Jolie paired her all-white beekeeper's suit with what appeared to be brown suede boots.

Jolie partnered with French fragrance and cosmetics house Guerlain, UNESCO and the Observatoire Français d’Apidologie for the "Women for bees" project.

"Ten women from five biosphere reserves will be welcomed to a 30-day accelerated training course at OFA’s Domaine de la Sainte-Baume (Provence, France) every year," UNESCO announced in March. "Over five years, 50 participants will learn the theoretical and practical bases of beekeeping, including the running of a professional apiary. At the end of the training, participants will have acquired all the protocols allowing them to sustain the life of their bee colonies and to become fully professional beekeeper-entrepreneurs, and members of an international network of female beekeepers."

Jolie wore a tan dress and sandals for the presentation part of the ceremony before switching into the beekeeper outfit.

Meanwhile, Jolie did a photoshoot with bees for National Geographic in May. The "Salt" actress styled her hair in a sleek ponytail and wore an off-the-shoulder white top for the pictorial. She posed with a swarm of bees and later shared how she prepared for the project.

"It was so funny to be in hair and makeup and wiping yourself with pheromone," she told National Geographic. "We couldn't shower for three days before. Because they told me, 'If you have all these different scents, shampoos and perfumes and things, the bee doesn't know what you are.' [They] don't want [bees] to confuse you for a flower, I suppose."

Jolie also shared the most uncomfortable moment when they did the photoshoot. Apparently, one bee managed to get underneath her skirt.

"It was like one of those old comedies. I kept feeling it on my knee, on my leg, and then I thought, 'Oh, this is the worst place to get stung. It's getting really close,'" Jolie said.  "It stayed there the entire time we were doing the shoot. And then when I got all the other bees off, I lifted the skirt and she went away."
