Angelina Jolie's braless look while meeting Archbishop of Canterbury turns heads

Angelina Jolie met with the Church of England's leader, Justin Wembly, on Thursday, but their meeting was overshadowed by a pretty awkward moment.

The mother-of-six wore a simple grey sweater with an ivory pleated skirt -- and people immediately noticed that she opted to go braless.

The Archbishop of Canterbury shared several photos taken during their meeting at London's Lambeth Palace, and Jolie's fashion faux pas is evident in one of the snaps.

"She needs a bra. Looks like she could poke someone's eye out. How embarrassing," one user wrote.

"I'm sure the archbishop appreciated her showing her nipples," someone else posted.

The strong criticism comes just a couple of years after the actress underwent a double mastectomy. Angelina found out in 2013 that she carried a mutation of a gene that sharply increases her chance of getting breast cancer.

The "Maleficent" star discussed several topics related to her humanitarian work with Wembly.

"Privilege to welcome UNHCR Special Envoy Angelina Jolie. Discussed refugee crisis, South Sudan and prevention of sexual violence in conflict," he captioned the trio of photos he posted.

Jolie was appointed to her United Nations position in 2012, and it's one that she takes very seriously. She has previously worked with Welby during the 2015 opening of the Centre for Peace and Security at the London School of Economics, where she spoke out against sexual violence.

The important engagement marks the end of a busy week in London for Jolie, who taught her first class at the London School of Economics on Tuesday. She is now working as a "professor in practice," teaching a course on Women, Peace and Security. Later in the day, she and son Maddox paid a visit to Buckingham Palace where they got a "highly unusual private tour" of Queen's Elizabeth's digs.

The Oscar-winning actress is slowly crawling back into the spotlight after remaining out of the public eye amid her tumultuous divorce with Brad Pitt. In a recent BBC interview to promote her new documentary, "First They Killed My Father," she opened up about the headline-making split:

"I don't want to say very much about that except to say that it was a very difficult time," she emotionally said. "And we are a family and will always be a family. And we will get through this time and hopefully be a stronger family for it."
