Angelina Jolie new face of Louis Vuitton
Angelina Jolie is expected to become at least $10 million richer as she reportedly lands a gig with French luxury malletier Louis Vuitton as the new face of the brand.
The Academy Award winner will feature in a print-only advertising campaign that will be shot by celeb snapper Annie Leibovitz in the next few weeks and launched this Summer.
“A source familiar with the deal between Jolie and the French fashion behemoth tells E! News that the actress will get paid ‘close to $10 million’ for her high-end endorsement deal, believed to be the most lucrative of her career,” a report on E! Online said.
The Salt star will soon join Louis Vuitton’s exclusive roster of celebrity endorsers, which includes Uma Thurman, Madonna and People’s Most Beautiful Woman Jennifer Lopez.
Is anybody surprised by this announcement? We think the whole fashion world is. While Angelina has been spotted toting Louis Vuitton purses on several occasions, she was more likely to become an endorser for Versace.
She has been consistently wearing the Italian label to important events over the past year – at four different Salt premieres in Cancun, Moscow, Tokyo and California, three The Tourist premieres in Berlin, Madrid and New York, and the Golden Globes at the beginning of this year.
