Angelina Jolie looked stunning in a full beekeeper’s suit as she presented diplomas to graduates of the French Apidology Observatory on Wednesday.
Angelina Jolie collaborated on the “Women for Bees” project with French fragrance and cosmetics house Guerlain, as well as UNESCO and the Observatoire Français d’Apidologie.
“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 said.
“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.”
The program began on June 21, which means Jolie was presenting the program’s inaugural class with their credentials.

For the presentation portion of the ceremony, she wore a tan dress and sandals before changing into her more familiar beekeeping outfit, which she paired with a pair of chic boots.
In the ranks of celebrity apiarists, Jolie, 46, joins David Beckham and Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea. According to The Sun, Beckham “has become a bit obsessed” with beekeeping during the pandemic lockdown, and “even built a hive” at his family’s home.
Flea started learning about bees in 2015, according to Modern Farmer, and has since raised (built? midwifed?) three hives totaling over 200,000 bees, which he frequently posts about on his social media channels.
Angelina Jolie’s trip to France may take the sting out of her custody battle with ex-husband Brad Pitt. Last month, it was reported that half of the couple’s children wanted to testify against Pitt during a custody hearing, but Jolie claimed the judge refused.
Meanwhile, the “Maleficent” actress has been making headlines by frequently stepping out with music star The Weeknd, though one source said their relationship was strictly business, “He’s definitely focused on getting into the movie business.” He has a new HBO series in which he stars.”
