Since announcing her divorce from Brad Pitt in September of 2016, Angelina Jolie has stayed well out of the spotlight over the past five months. However, Guerlain announced overnight that the 41-year-old actress is the brand's newest face.
Teasing the project via Instagram, the house revealed only a black and white silhouette image of Jolie as they confirmed she will front their new fragrance for women, Mon Guerlain.
It's huge news, particularly given that the last time Angelina fronted a beauty campaign was way back in 2007 for Shiseido, and those ads were only distributed in Japan. The actress reportedly signed on to be the face whilst she was in Cambodia in 2015 directing First They Killed My Father. It is said that she holds a special affinity for the French brand as her mother used to use one of its powders.
Jacques Guerlain said of the fragrance, "We create perfumes for the women we admire," and Thierry Wasser, the brand's master perfumer, explained that the inspiration for the scent was the "notes of a woman. The choices, emotions and dreams that embody femininity."
A press release from Guerlain also announced that, in true Angelina fashion, her entire salary from the campaign would be donated to charity.
There are no further details on the collaboration, but the perfume is due for release in March.
