A new beautiful ad for Mon Guerlain – can’t wait to get to see more ads and commercials from this campaign!
Such a beautiful commercial with our beautiful Angelina! I’ve to say that for someone like me who isn’t too interested in beauty commercials, this one spoke more to me than they normally do.
“This new accord invites us to move beyond the divide and ambiguity of masculine and feminine, because it works to reconcile genres” – Delphine Jelk, co-creator of Mon Guerlain
Luxury French beauty house Guerlain has launched Mon Guerlain, a major new feminine fragrance, with actress and film director Angelina Jolie as the face.
The Moodie Davitt Report was the sole travel retail media present at the top-secret launch event held at Guerlain’s Orphin factory in January.
Mon Guerlain, available in 15ml (travel retail-exclusive), 30ml, 50ml and 100ml, will be launched worldwide (including travel retail) on 1 March.
Speaking at the launch event, Guerlain President & CEO Laurent Boillot underlined the house’s global ambitions for the fragrance. He said that the company has an international vision for the launch and is targeting “full expansion of the globe”. Without divulging numbers, Boillot revealed that Guerlain had “never invested so much in a fragrance launch”.
“We are going to speak to so many consumers in the world who don’t even know who we are,” said Boillot.
Mon Guerlain, referred to as code name ‘G17’ during development, is said to represent a portrait of women today and “accomplished femininity”. The perfume is described by Guerlain as “an invisible tattoo on skin”.
Someone finally uploaded a video from the ‘Good Morning America’ interview (Aired February 21). Here Angelina mentions the divorce and is the source of all the articles posted online lately with Angelina’s quotes.
To be able to handle such attention for something that is so private. I will always be impressed in how she can be so professional, honest and polite when getting sometimes even rude and intruding questions.
This is such exciting times! The Hollywood Reporter posted several news on upcoming and rumoured projects including Angelina. There is talks about several projects, such as “The Bride of Frankestein“, Disney’s “The One and Only Ivan” and a directing project “Without Blood“. In general I’m just very excited about new movies starring our favorite Angie!
Despite reports that the actress-director is done with Hollywood, Jolie is in talks to star in ‘The Spy Who Loved‘ and a Catherine the Great project, both at Universal; is developing ‘Without Blood‘ as a directing vehicle; and has signed on to produce ‘The One and Only Ivan‘ for Disney.
Hollywood and Asian royalty rubbed shoulders Feb. 18 at the Cambodian premiere of Angelina Jolie’s new directorial endeavor, First They Killed My Father. Adapted from Khmer Rouge survivor Loung Ung’s memoir, the movie tells the story of Ung’s dramatic childhood and features a cast of mostly nonprofessionals, reproducing the nightmare of life under Pol Pot.
Noticeably absent from the low-key affair — held in the Cambodian city of Angkor — were Hollywood A-listers, including Netflix’s chief content officer, Ted Sarandos, who, sources say, paid a whopping $25 million for the Khmer-language release, due out this fall, with an awards-qualifying rollout from a to-be-determined theatrical partner. Netflix executive Sarah Bowen stood in for her boss, joining the evening’s hosts, Cambodia’s King Norodom Sihamoni and Queen Mother Norodom Monineath Sihanouk.
But Jolie isn’t expected to toil in obscurity much longer, despite reports that she is done with Hollywood. Once Hollywood’s best-paid female star, able to command $20 million in addition to profit participation for 2014’s Maleficent, the actress-director is plotting her return to high-profile fare in the wake of her massively publicized and acrimonious split from Brad Pitt, first announced Sept. 20 (the breakup was so ugly that it included child abuse accusations that Pitt was cleared of).
Sources close to Jolie say she is mulling a number of acting offers including reprising her role as the vengeful fairy in Disney’s Maleficent 2 and is in active development on two large-scale Universal projects: an adaptation of Simon Sebag Montefiore’s Catherine the Great and Potemkin: The Imperial Love Affair and World War II espionage drama The Spy Who Loved (based on Clare Mulley’s 2013 book). All the while, she is quietly prepping what may be her next directing vehicle: an adaptation of Alessandro Baricco’s 2004 novel Without Blood, which chronicles the cruelties of an unnamed war. She also has signed on as a producer on Disney kid pic The One and Only Ivan.
Angelina was on Good Morning America on February 21st promoting “First They Killed My Father” and I can unfortunately not watch this because I don’t live in the US. You can watch the interview here and for us others we will have to wait for someone to hopefully upload it to YouTube 🙂
Some quotes from the interview:
Angelina Jolie says she still believes Brad Pitt is a wonderful father and their family “will be stronger” following their divorce.
The actress spoke on US television about her high-profile split from Pitt, from whom she filed for divorce in September after two years of marriage.
She told Good Morning America: “We are focusing on the health of our family. And so we will be (healthier).
‘We will be stronger when we come out of this, because that’s what we’re determined to do as a family.”
Asked if she still believed Pitt was a “wonderful father”, as she had once described him, she replied: “Of course. We will always be a family.
