Procop will be in a showcase organized at the center of the event, where he will unveil the latest models of the jewelry line he created in collaboration with American filmmaker Angelina Jolie. Launched in 2012, the line called “Style of Jolie” was known for its extraordinary Colombian emeralds, tourmalines and green beryls and its extravagant citrus. All pure and powerful. Jolie put her stylistic signature on the colored pieces.

However, the latest revelation of the line created by Jolie will be the big surprise: a limited edition of pieces, which includes rings, necklaces, pendants and also anklets, all in pink and white gold, with black, rose and crystal quartz spinels White.

Angelina Wows Viewers as She Expertly Pilots a Plane Over Namibia

Just a nice article by People magazine about Angelina and her part in The Queen’s Green Planet and how people have reacted to Angie being a talented pilot 🙂

Angelina Jolie is going to great heights for her latest conservationist project.

The actress, environmentalist and all-around Renaissance woman, 42, impressed fans around the world this week when she was filmed nonchalantly piloting and landing a small plane over the Namibian desert in the ITV special The Queen’s Green Planet.

For the new documentary, which she appeared in with Queen Elizabeth and Sir David Attenborough, Jolie spent time in the African nation highlighting forest conservation.

“For us to come here and say to the children, ‘This is why it’s important to plant a tree,’ that’s the biggest message I can teach my kids, and it’s something that they’ve certainly learned from Her Majesty and her message,” the Oscar winner explained in the documentary, which aired April 16.

In addition to the documentary’s positive message, fans were blown away by Jolie’s piloting skills.

“What even is this show?! Attenborough, The Queen, and now Angelina Jolie just casually flying a plane. Is there anything she can’t do?” one fan tweeted.

“Angelina Jolie is flying a plane over the desert nonchalantly. Is there anything this woman can’t do??” another echoed.

“Congratulations to Angelina Jolie being able to fly plane without even looking were she is going!!! Literally UNBELIVABLE!!!” U.K. television presenter Stephen Mulhern wrote.

Jolie got her pilot’s license in December 2004, saying that her son Maddox inspired her, PEOPLE reported at the time. “If I could actually fly a plane by the time he’s 4, I’ll be like Superman to him.”
