London: Ending months of speculation as to whether “is she or isn’t she,” images released on Tuesday have finally revealed Angelina Jolie as the new face for Louis Vuitton’s ‘Core Values’ campaign.
Shot by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz, the first image features Jolie sans make-up and footwear, reclining on a wooden boat in Cambodia - the country she fell in love with, and adopted her son Maddox from, after filming of Lara Croft: Tomb Raider there in 2000, reports the Telegraph.
"People are not used to seeing Angelina in this situation," Vuitton`s executive vice president, Pietro Beccari, told WWD.
"I like the fact that it`s a real moment. This travel message we give through personal journeys is a fundamental one for the brand."
Beccari declined to comment on rumours that Jolie was paid in the region of 10 million dollars for her time, but did disclose that she had elected to donate a significant slice of her fee to a charity.
