Did Angelina Jolie raid her Maleficent costume closet for her latest diplomatic mission?

The do-gooder actress, director and UNHCR Special Envoy, 37, appeared in Ankara, Turkey on Friday following a meeting with Turkish leaders -- including the deputy prime minister and the interior minister -- to discuss the ongoing crisis in Syria.

For the high-profile meeting, a fresh-faced Jolie wore a dramatic, loose-fitting black gown with extra long sleeves and a hem that went past her feet. The look unintentionally recalled the costume the Oscar-winner has been wearing as she shoots Maleficent -- about the villain in Sleeping Beauty -- outside London.

"It's a really great script, and I'm having a lot of fun. I've already got my horns fitted," Jolie told Entertainment Weekly of her titular role in March. "My kids are very happy."
