Angelina Jolie is captured in her natural element, barefoot and sans makeup in her own outfits, including her Alto bags that she has for years, on a wooden boat along a river in Siem Reap province, Cambodia.
The 36-year-old Hollywood actress-stroke-humanitarians Angelina is the new face of Louis Vuitton Core Values campaign, which the French fashion house is promoting for many years.
Lensed by well known photographer Annie Leibowitz, the campaign which is about a very special person and a very special journey, was set in simple and calm nuances of nature, as well as the actress was shown in the most authentic image, bringing her vintage Louis Vuitton Monogram Alto Holdall, a bag she has owned for many years.
Cambodia that was chosen is a country which she first visited in 2000 for her role in Tomb Raiders film as Lara Croft and later returned in 2003 on humanitarian missions, and apparently the backdrop for the ad, the lake-side Siem Reap province, is where the actress discovered her interest in human rights activism. She subsequently adopted her first child, Maddox in 2002, from a Cambodia orphanage
The beautiful Angelina will donate her earnings for this campaign entirely to charity, while her 47 year old partner Brad Pitt, has just donated US$500,000 to a charity, which is helping to rebuild his tornado-ravaged home state of Missouri. Both of these humanitarians charity to The Community Foundation of the Ozarks will also help the Joplin area, which was recently destroyed by deadly twisters.
She isn’t the first celebrity to pose for Core Value campaign as she is following in the footsteps internationally-known personalities including Bono, Sean Connery, Buzz Aldrin, Keith Richards, Catherine Deneuve and Mikhail Gorbachev, while Madonna, Jennifer Lopez and Scarlett Johansson have been previous faces of the brand
