Angelina Jolie Floats Through the Cambodian Jungle for Louis Vuitton
“In 2000, Angelina Jolie made her first trip to Cambodia.” And so begins not just the single greatest makeover in Hollywood history, but also, Louis Vuitton’s new ad campaign, where the megastar actress will return to her first son’s birthplace to help sell very expensive bags.
The ‘Core Values’ campaign’s first image—a rather beautiful one, shot by Annie Liebowitz—popped up online a couple of weeks ago, and features Jolie posing in a traditional wood boat somewhere in the Siem Reap province (we’d recognize the Siem Reap province anywhere). But today, the campaign kicks into high gear, with brand new teaser footage of a mini-documentary, about Angelina Jolie’s ties to the country. The footage features Jolie, an endangered species (there’s only left), wandering through the jungle as sunlight seeps through the palm leaves, children laugh, and a piano tinkles softly. We’d write more, but the Louis Vuitton store is closing soon.
