Angelina Jolie is officially back in the limelight.

The Oscar-winning actress (42) had taken something of a reprieve from the red carpet since splitting with husband Brad Pitt in 2016, slowly dipping her toe back into public life in recent months.

The mother-of-six was the guest of honour at the 32nd Annual American Society Of Cinematographers (ASC) Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday night, dazzling in a dreamy gown by Elie Saab, with a plunging neckline with embellished feather detail and ankle length tulle.

She was awarded the Board of Governors award for her work in directing First They Killed My Father. ASC president Kees van Oostrum praised Jolie's passino for cinema.

"Angelina Jolie sets a high standard. She is a true artist, with a strong vision and collaborative spirit," he said before giving her the award.

"She has also entertained us through her work, but more importantly has brought significant social issues to our attention. For her wide-ranging accomplishments, we are honored to present her with our Board of Governors Award."

Jolie has found herself back in the news again as estranged husband Brad Pitt was linked to his first wife Jennifer Aniston, who announced on Friday she is separating from husband Justin Theroux. Aniston's representative denied the claims.
