Angelina Jolie for Louis Vuitton
by Alice Byrne
Angelina Jolie was a great choice for the new promotional images for Louis Vuitton. I am a big fan of the whole look of the Louis Vuitton advertisements, and the models / celebrities they choose to represent their brand. I feel they often choose people who are very talented and skilled at what they do, with a real appreciation for classic style and taste. Previous faces of the brand include Kieth Richards (who I completely adore), Sean Connery and Bono.
Angelina’s images take her on a journey around Cambodia, with the first image being released in early June. The photographs are shot by Annie Leibovitz, and feature Angelina sitting on boat in Cambodia’s Siem Reap province. She is wearing minimal make-up, and sitting beside her is her own years-old Louis Vuitton monogrammed Alto bag. I think this is a great personal touch, and goes back to Louis Vuitton’s brand ethos of quality and timeless design.
