Angelina Jolie Louis Vuitton Ad: A Moment of Zen

by at . Comments

Angelina Jolie recently became the face of Louis Vuitton.

In a brand-new print ad for the brand's "Core Values" campaign, the actress' face is free of makeup, and her style extremely bland and casual.

Wearing her own casual clothes, Jolie savors a moment of Zen aboard a wooden boat floating in a marsh in Cambodia's Siem Reap province:

Angelina Jolie For Louis Vuitton

Unveiled by Women's Wear Daily, Jolie's stark portrait (weathered, monogrammed LV Alto bag at her side) was photographed by legendary Annie Leibovitz.

The photographer said she had to shoo Jolie's elder four kids out of the picture frame to get the Angelina Jolie photos that would be transformed into the ads.

"People are not used to seeing Angelina in this situation," Vuitton executive vice president Pietro Beccari tells WWD of the sanguine, makeup-free image.

The 36-year-old actress first discovered Cambodia in 2000 while filming Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, and is the birthplace of her eldest son Maddox, 10.

"I like the fact that it's a real moment," Beccari added. "This travel message we give through personal journeys is a fundamental one for the brand."

Jolie says she'll donate her earnings from this campaign (also featuring Bono, Sean Connery, Keith Richards and Catherine Deneuve) to charity.

The actress and Brad Pitt, who remain involved in charity and conservation work in Cambodia, recently donated $500,000 to Joplin, Missouri.

I loveeeeeeeeeeeeeee Jolie. The former St. John had Jolie since 2005 to 2010 did not appreciate her beauty or good hearted, but Jolie was being criticized for being who she really is. Jolie rather gives million dollars to charity than wearing anything from St. John. LV, you are lucky to have the most beautiful in the world who cares nothing but being a hard worker,who wants to make million so she can give to charities all over the world. But one thing that I love about Jolie is that beside being a seductive lover, she is also a great mother of 6 children; do I count that right

Lately, I've seen several "make-up free" star photo shoots that were so obviously NOT! I guess concealer, foundation, and subtle eye make-up doesn't count. Maybe that's make-up free compared to five pounds globbed on?!

while anelina may have some sort of eye liner or mascarra on i still think it is a much more "stipped" version of what she may wear to some premiere and the photo speaks for itself. the woman is not only breath taking but inspiring, just keep doing what youre doing angie cause youre amazing in many different ways, and who ever thinks different well... fuck em. p.s. annie leibovitz is a genious and i hope one day to take even half the quality of photos that she does.

Angelina looks SOOOOOO FREAKIN GORGEOUS!...Her face always looks more sexy and alluring without make-up...and I love that she's donating the earnings to charity. I can't believe how gorgeous her surrounding are, and the pose,facial expreassion, casual but sexy clothes...etc. She's awesome. I'm so inspired by this simple picture...it's unbelievable. Not only does she make me want to support her causes, and buy a LV bag...but she makes me feel that a woman can accomplish ANYTHING!..and that is priceless. Keep Rockin' Angie.
