She's got the ring, but when is Angelina Jolie going to find time to plan the wedding?

The actress, 36, isn't slowing down in the wake of her engagement to Brad Pitt, 48. On Monday, she stepped out at a business meeting at L.A.'s Roosevelt Hotel, sporting the stunning sparkler that her fiancé designed for her.

On Tuesday, the United Nations Refugee Agency, of which Jolie has long been an ambassador, announced that the actress received a promotion to the position of Special Envoy of High Commissioner António Guterres.





"In her new role, she is expected to focus on large-scale crises," the UNHCR said in a statement. "Ms. Jolie will focus on complex emergencies and will work to facilitate lasting solutions for people displaced by conflict."

And she's not slowing down when it comes to movie work, either: In June Jolie will start filming her role as the horned villainess in Disney's Maleficent, and she and Pitt are in talks to costar in Ridley Scott's upcoming drug drama The Counselor, which is set to shoot in Europe in the coming months.

Plus, there's the small matter of planning her upcoming nuptials – not to mention her parenting duties as a mom of six. That's one long to-do list!
