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.”
