I was happy to learn that my (and My Bibe's) favorite Angelina Jolie is doing a campaign for Louis Vuitton. It's the latest installment in the luxury brand's Core Values Campaign where the likes of Sean Connery, Mikhael Gorbachev, Keith Richards, and a slew of other personalities have already been featured. The campaign was introduced in 2007 as a balance to LV's high fashion-driven marketing, focusing more on its travel roots.
The visuals were shot by another favorite, Annie Leibovitz, in Cambodia, a country very close to Jolie's heart. She first came in 2000 to do Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, and returned many times over after that for various humanitarian and charity work (primarily for the United Nations as a Goodwill Ambassador). Needless to say, she later adopted son Maddox from a Cambodian orphanage.
As expected, Jolie's fees will go to charity. And this is just one of the reasons why My Bibe and I love her beyond her stunning looks and talent. Geez, she's been to Iraq and Afghanistan for chrissakes! Unannounced! But of course the media gets wind of it when she's already there. Now she's in Turkey visiting Sudanese refugees. If naysayers say she's probably faking it, well I say she's been faking it too long now. So it must be genuine. Go, Angie!
