Mother of six Angelina Jolie, who turned 43 this year, embraces getting older. “Wisdom, understanding, clarity of thought – all the things that come with age are also beautiful and feminine qualities. “I’d like to think we all get better with age – men and women.” Looking in the mirror these days, Angelina says she sees her mother Marcheline Bertrand looking back, which “warms her”. An actress and humanitarian like her daughter, Marcheline, who died from ovarian cancer in 2007, is the reason Angelina was drawn to fragrance house Guerlain.
Before being unveiled as the face of its new perfume Mon Guerlain last year, the Oscar-winning actress hadn’t appeared in a beauty campaign for ten years, but when chief executive Laurent Boillot flew out to Cambodia to discuss the opportunity, Angelina was reminded of her mother’s love of a particular Guerlain face powder. “She hardly ever wore make-up, but she saved this powder for special occasions,” she tells us. “I grew up thinking of Guerlain as this very fancy French brand.” Having directed last year’s Golden Globe and Bafta-nominated First They Killed My Father, Angelina returned to acting this year, voicing one of the characters in Disney’s The One and Only Ivan and filming Maleficent 2 in the UK. HELLO! caught up with her ahead of the launch of a eau de toilette version of Mon Guerlain to find out more about the new fragrance and how the brand is paying tribute to her mother.
A big update this time! We have gone through all the photos and videos related to Angelina’s work as a model, her modeling jobs in recent years and also some commercials she has done. Angie has done campaigns for perfume, clothes, make-up, bags, sunglasses, toothpaste and more – a good CV if you ask us!
While promoting Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life in 2003 she was also involved with movie tie-in campaigns for Got Milk?, Panasonic, Tissot Watches and Jeep. And another project that used to be really rare one was a comedy commercial she did for Animal Planet to promote the program Wild on the Set, this has also been added. It has been rumored since around 2005 that Angelina narrated a commercial for Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Deluxe, but we have been unable to find out, do you know?
We have choosen to divide it up after fashion brands, fashion spreads in magazines and then unknown photoshoots and private sessions Angelina did to get photos to send out through her agencies. You can read about all these projects here, there you will find general information, facts and more for each project she has worked on.
If you have any information about the modeling jobs, have photos or are able to scan things for us, please contact us. We are aiming to be a complete archive over Angelina’s work and everything related to her – so please help us out and be part of the mission! 🙂
Angelina was the face of the Japanese make-up company Shiseido from 2006 to 2008 and she appeared in several commercials and print ads. The campaigns only run in Japan so unfortunately was the material a bit harder to find. Here is all the videos for the commercials we know about and print ads, photoshoots and screencaptures. You can read more about Angelina’s collaboration with Shiseido on the project page as well.
If anyone have any of these commercials in better quality, please send them to us!
A new interview with Angelina made by Australian Vogue and Angie discusses her work with Guerlain, femininity, feminism and what lessons she tries to teach her daughters.
“Equality is not about us all being the same. It is about the freedom to make our own choices and live our own lives fully, not at the expense of men, but alongside men.”
In early 2017, Angelina Jolie was selected as the face of Guerlain’s Mon Guerlain fragrance, a choice that Jolie noted at the time was an easy one, thanks to her late mother Marcheline Bertrand’s fondness for the French beauty house.
Jolie was the first Hollywood actress to have ever co-created a fragrance for the house (a coup to say the least) and now, thanks to the release of the Mon Guerlain eau de toilette, Jolie has given Vogue Australia unprecedented access into her world to celebrate her affinity for the brand.
Here, Jolie opens up to Vogue to discuss femininity, raising her family and the remarkable women who inspire her.
What values do you identify the most with the Maison Guerlain?
“When you visit the Guerlain House on the Champs-Elysées you get a sense of the history of the company. It is the oldest perfume house in the world. For nearly 200 years they’ve been making perfumes that celebrate femininity in all its forms. But I’d never endorsed a perfume before, and would not have unless I was sure of the values and ethos of the company. They have a genuine commitment to the environment, sustainable development and the communities they work with. That’s what brought us together.”

It was announced on July 27, 2018, that the French cosmetics brand Guerlain will launch a third version of the perfume “Mon Guerlain”. They have also released a new commercial with several new scenes and a print ad for this campaign which you can view below and in the photo gallery.
The third edition of the “Mon Guerlain” line arrives in September 2018 and was named “Mon Guerlain Eau de Toilette”, which this time will come radiant, fresh and cheerful, as a hymn to life, dedicating a dedication to contemporary femininity that has multiple layers. This new version of the fragrance was developed by Thierry Wasser and Delphine Jelk and combines the notes of lavender with tangerine.
Lavender expresses purity, honesty and strength while mandarin reflects the ability to accept the surprises of life with joy and pleasure. In the top notes of the new perfume are tangerine and lavender. On the heart notes is the Jasmine Sambac and on the base note is the vanilla.
