Angelina Jolie is so larger-than-life, she makes you forget about the products she’s paid to endorse: the gorgeous Oscar-winner was replaced as the face of fashion house St. John, because her presence, according to company CEO Glenn McMahon, “overshadowed the brand.”
Next month, the new, Angie-less ads launch in Vanity Fair, Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue, showcasing stunning redhead Karen Elson, instead.
“We wanted to make a clean break from actresses and steer away from blonds and cleanse the palette,” McMahon told Women’s Wear Daily. “We needed to show a modern point of view of St. John; we have evolved.”
So it looks as if Jolie, 34, will continue paying the bills as an A-list movie star; her next film, Salt, hits theaters July 23.
