Thompson on Hollywood

It may not seem like a logical pairing, but check out this Angelina Jolie ad for Louis Vuitton. She put together her own clothes and makeup for this Annie Leibovitz photograph. The location is Cambodia (where Jolie shot Tomb Raider and met and adopted her eldest son); the brand's "Core Values" campaign lured Jolie to put her famous face and name to the equally famous luxury line.

In true Jolie form, her paycheck from this campaign will go straight to charity. Vuitton EVP Pietro Beccari says "personal journeys" are important for the brand and Jolie's lasting relationship (through the UNHCR) with Cambodia reflects this: "This campaign is about a very special person and a very special journey."
