Angelina Jolie arrives at JFK airport with children Pax, 19, and Zahara, 18… after taking meetings for her new company Atelier Jolie in Manhattan
Angelina Jolie’s quick trip to New York City with her children Pax, 19, and Zahara, 18, is over.
The trio arrived in the Big Apple on July 14 and returned to Los Angeles on Monday.
The Maleficent star, 48, looked chic and elegant in a black trench coat cinched with a belt cinched at her slim waist over black pants.
She slipped her feet into a pair of black shoes, carried a large brown bag, and put sunglasses on her famous face.
Zahara looked pretty in a red top and jeans with a black jacket, while Pax wore gray jeans and a white t-shirt and wore a black jacket as they made their way through the busy terminal.

While in New York City, she participated in meetings for her new Atelier Jolie brand, as she was seen carrying notebooks with plans for her new retail space.
A week ago it was revealed that Jolie had rented 57 Great Jones Street in New York City.
The building was owned by Andy Warhol and was the last place where Jean-Michel Basquiat lived and worked, from 1983 until his death in 1988.
“As soon as he walked through the space, he fell in love with it,” said John Roesch, the Meridian Capital Group broker who represented the owner, according to braking.
He added: “She made sure she got this deal.”
And he plans to open Atelier Jolie in the space, which he calls a “global family” of underrepresented tailors who work exclusively with recycled items.
“We hope to create a community of creativity and inspiration, regardless of socioeconomic background,” Jolie wrote in jolie workshopwebsite of
It will be ‘a place for creative people to collaborate with a diverse and skilled family of expert tailors’. It will also be ‘a place to have fun’.
The property was on the market for $60,000 per month with a minimum lease term of 10 years; however, it’s unclear if that’s what Jolie will pay for.

The 6,600-square-foot building had been on the market since November.
The real estate agent said Jolie was “very hands on” in closing the deal and visited the space multiple times over six months.
“I think normally you would have the team take care of everything, but she wanted to make sure she closed the deal,” Roesch said.
And Jolie faced competition for space from several people. In the end, though, “we decided that Angelina’s concept would be the best fit and use for the building,” Roesch said.
