Angelina travels to Cambodia in the name of Louis Vuitton

As a natural beauty Angelina Jolie is widely known for her pouty lips
and sultry eyes. She is an Academy Award winner, a mother, a wife, a UN
High Commissioner for Refugees Goodwill Ambassador, and now it is
confirmed that she will be the new face for Louis Vuitton.

The campaign will be shot in Cambodia by the internationally acclaimed photographer, Annie Leibovitz. Leibovitz has shot a slew of celebrities, from the George W. Bush Cabinet to a nude Vanity Fair cover of Scarlett Johansson and Keira Knightley. 

Angelina reportedly banked $10 million for the campaign, which is
rumored to be her largest endorsement yet. She will be joining other
celebrities, such as Madonna and Jennifer Lopez, who have also represented the designer.  

The location of the shoot is in Siem Reap, Cambodia, a country
Angelina is more than familiar with being the birth place of her adopted
son, Maddox. In 2001, prior to the adoption Angelina donned the Laura
Croft gear for her part in the film, Laura Croft: Tomb Raider, filmed in Angkor Wat.

Following her adoption of Maddox in 2002, 2003 saw the inception of
the Maddox Jolie-Foundation, which has since been changed to Maddox Jolie-Pitt foundation.

The foundation is committed to creating peace and stability in
communities by working with impoverished rural villagers and local
governments. It aims to help alleviate food shortages and increase basic
necessities, such as healthcare and education.

Currently, the program is working on the Samlout 2012 project. It’s priority is to achieve economic grown and reduce enviornmental destruction in the rural Cambodia Samlout district. 

Since then, Angelina has returned to Cambodia on many occasions for
business and pleasure. She is so beloved there that it was said that a
temple was named after her.

In 2010, Rajan Zed, president of the Universal Society of Hinduism, told WENN news that Ta Prohm, a Hindu religious temple has been unofficially renamed the “Angelina Jolie Temple.” 

Cambodia being such an important part of Angelina’s philanthropic endeavors and personal life makes for an interesting setting.

The campaign’s debut is slated for this summer.
