Angelina Jolie tipped as new face of Louis Vuitton
The rumour mill has chugged into overdrive as – after a lovely, hot, summery, BBque-filled Easter break- I’m back to the news that Angelina Jolie has been hotly tipped as the new face of luxury brand Louis Vuitton.
Following in the footsteps of Jennifer Lopez and Madonna, the Hollywood actress is understood to have secured a $10 million deal for a print-only ad campaign shot by the photographer Annie Liebovitz.
It will be Jolie’s most high-profile modelling job in recent years. She was previously the face of the more conservative US brand St John from 2005-2008, until she was replaced by redhead supermodel Karen Elson.
Elson actually appeared alongside supermodels Christy Turlington and Natalia Vodianova in a movie-star inspired AW10 ad campaign for Louis Vuitton, see FashionBite’s post Louis Vuitton’s New AW10 Ad Campaign: FIRST LOOK.
A tie-up with Louis Vuitton’s creative director Marc Jacobs is definitely a notch up the fashion ladder for Jolie.
The ad campaign is set to launch this summer..can’t wait to see how it will look!
