There's a time and a place for Angelina Jolie's right leg -- and Thursday night's 3rd Annual Women in the World event at Lincoln Center in Manhattan wasn't it.

The In the Land of Blood and Honey director and United Nations Goodwill Ambassador, 36, kept covered up but was still radiant in a white blazer with gold clasp, loose chiffon top and black pants.

The stunning mother of six's hair was in the same lighter shade -- and Kate Middleton-esque waves -- she sported at the Oscars in L.A. nearly two weeks ago, where she inspired an enduring Internet meme after dramatically baring her right leg in a black velvet Atelier Versace gown with a thigh-high slit.

In her longtime role as UNHCR ambassador, the mother of six spoke passionately about the plight of Somali refugees.

And her efforts were applauded by one Rwandan genocide survivor, Sandra Uwiringiyimana, who personally thanked the superstar for "taking justice into her home and hands" and "doing incredible things."
