St. John drops Angelina Jolie as its model
Design house St. John just jettisoned Angelina Jolie as its celebrity model.
Jolie appeared in the print ads shot by Mario Testino for the past three years for an estimated $12 million. Angelina without a fashion contract? Oh no.
But no hard feelings. Four new models will be used, no notable names yet. New CEO Glenn McMahon says, "It was time to do something new and different."
Does that mean more interesting, exciting, energizing photos that actually make women want to buy and wear your clothes, as opposed to just cursing themselves for not looking like the incredibly gorgeous Ms. Jolie? Most of the ads showed little to no St. John clothes at all. What's that about?
Just a thought.
