The high-end designer has been using Angelina Jolie as their model for the last few years, but this year they have decided to drop Angelina and hire red-head model Karen Elson.
They said that Angelina Jolie overshadows the brand, and they wanted a more low-key model. A spokesperson for the company said, “We wanted to make a clean break from actresses and steer away from blondes and cleanse the palette.”
Though Karen Elson is anything but unnoticeable. Her past campaigns for Yves Saint Laurent have proved that the model is absolutley stunning, and it is almost impossible to look away.
So who knows if this new stunt will work? Angelina’s past ads were simple and gorgeous, but the company is right, all you do is notice the beauty of Angelina Jolie.
