Angelina Jolie arrives at JFK Airport with kids Pax, 19, and Zahara, 18, after taking meetings for her new company Atelier Jolie in Manhattan.
Angelina Jolie wrapped up a quick trip to New York City with her kids Pax, 19, and Zahara, 18.
The trio arrived in the Big Apple on July 14 and returned home to Los Angeles on Monday.
The Maleficent star, 48, looked chic and elegant in a black trench coat belted tightly around her slim waist over black pants.
She slipped her feet into a pair of black pumps, carried a large brown tote back and put sunglasses on her famous face.
Zahara looked cute in jeans with a red top and a black jacket while Pax wore gray jeans and a white t-shirt and carried a black jacket as they made their way through the busy terminal.

While in New York City, she held meetings for her new brand Atelier Jolie as she was seen carrying notebooks with blueprints for her new retail space.
A week ago it was reported that Jolie had leased 57 Great Jones Street in New York City.
The building was once 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,’ Meridian Capital Group broker John Roesch, who represented the landlord, told Curbed.
He added: ‘He confirmed he got the deal.’
And he plans to open Atelier Jolie in the space, which he calls a ‘global family’ of understated tailors who work exclusively with upcycled items.
‘We hope to create a community of creativity and inspiration, regardless of socio-economic background,’ writes Jolie Atelier on Jolie’s website.
It will be ‘a place for creative people to collaborate with a skilled and diverse family of specialist tailors.’ It will also be, ‘a place to have fun.’
The property was on the market for $60,000 a month with a minimum lease term of 10 years — however, it’s unclear how much Jolie would pay.

Whirlwind trip: The trio’s trip to New York was short but fruitful
The 6,600-square-foot building had been on the market since November.
The realtor said Jolie was ‘very hands-on’ about closing the deal and visited the space multiple times over six months.
‘I think normally you’d have the team run the whole thing, but he wanted to make sure he got the deal done,’ Roche said.
And Jolie faced competition for the spot from multiple people. However, in the end, ‘we decided that Angelina’s concept would be the best fit and use for the building,’ says Roesch.
