On the occasion of 190 years of Guerlain, we met his muse, Angelina Jolie.
We greet her Hollywood, black dress split, red lips. We find her without makeup, dressed in an Italian cashmere, in the wise costume of the role she has held for sixteen years, that of ambassador of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. Her clear eyes stared, she smiled little; she is not here to seduce but to convince. “I clicked while traveling, I realized what was happening elsewhere, what I had never been taught before,” she says to explain his first commitment, in 2001, in Sierra Leone. Since then she has been a regular at the refugee camps, to whom she has given much of her time and notoriety. “I am always struck by their dignity, their grace, their resilience. And I often wonder if, in these terrible circumstances, I’ll get there as well as they do. “

Angelina is on the cover of the March issue of Elle magazine and she’s interviewed by John Kerry, the previous US Secretary of State. It’s a thoughtful and lovely conversation between them two and you can read the full interview in our press archive.
With the magazine comes several stunning new photos with Angelina! Can’t wait to see more from these photoshoots!
Angelina Jolie does not have a project to promote. She’s neither starring in, nor directing, a March film. Bucking the standard reasons for doing press, the Academy Award–winning megastar is on this month’s cover of ELLE to draw attention to an occasion that doesn’t come with a red carpet: International Women’s Day (March 8).
For the better part of the last decade, the 42-year-old has devoted herself to shedding light on women’s rights, or lack thereof, across the globe. Serving as a goodwill ambassador and special envoy to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, she’s completed nearly 60 field missions, including visits to Lebanon, Jordan, and Iraq. As cofounder of the British government’s Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative, she’s met with rape survivors in Rwanda and Bosnia and Herzegovina. Days before her ELLE shoot, the Guardian published Jolie’s call to action against gender-based violence, co-authored with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg. Despite all her advocacy, Jolie confesses she’s always been reticent when it comes to politics. Still, she recognizes that political action can sometimes offer a more direct route to changing things for the better.
Angelina went to the 2018 Annie Awards last night as was joined by Shiloh and Zahara on the red carpet. It was held at Royce Hall in Los Angeles and they were there because The Breadwinner was nominated for the “Best Animated Feature – Independent” award and WON! So huge congratulations to everyone involved! 🙂
Angelina visited the NATO headquarters in Brussels, Belgium today for a press conference with Jens Stoltenberg. She will continue to work together with NATO in the fight against violence against women and children in war times. Angelina started the “Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative” 5 years ago in England she fights hard to make changes in the world. She is such a true inspiration and we couldn’t be more proud of her!

Stoltenberg and Jolie have jointly pledged to work together to identify ways NATO can best protect women in conflict scenarios.
Actor-turned-director and special envoy of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), Angelina Jolie, is scheduled to meet with North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) General Secretary Jens Stoltenberg.
The envoy will address issues relating to gender violence and the protection of civilians in conflict with Stoltenberg and with the members of the North Atlantic Council. The activist has spent a large amount of time working in the field to bring key human rights issues to the forefront of the international political dialogue.
Stoltenberg and Jolie have jointly pledged to work together to identify ways NATO can best protection of women in those scenarios.
“We believe NATO is responsible for and the opportunity to be a leading protector of women’s rights,” Stoltenberg and the actress wrote in an Oct. letter – on which they had collaborated – highlighting existing problems and explaining procedures NATO could follow to protect women in conflict-ridden regions.
They also urged for more unified actions among companies, civil society, governments and political leadership against sexual violence in conflicts.
“Ending gender-based violence is a vital issue for peace and security, as well as for social justice,” the letter stated.
Jolie will reportedly be briefed on the duties of NATO advisers relating to gender issues in Kosovo and Afghanistan. “The focus will be on the protection of civilians, especially with regard to protection against sexual and gender-based violence,” a NATO official disclosed.
Measures to prevent sexual violence, as well as the implementation of protections for women in war zones, is expected to feature prominently among the talks.
Jolie will also meet Vice-General Secretary Rose Gottemoeller and Special Representative for Women, Peace and Security Clare Hutchinson.
The sometimes-director recently met with Syrian refugees and spoke with women who were victims of sexual violence during the civil war. Sexual violence is prohibited in conflict by international law but weaponized regardless.
Jolie is the co-founder of the Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative, which aims to raise awareness about the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war.
