About to be adding twins into her ever-growing brood with longtime partner Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie has ended her three-year relationship with fashion house St. John. The very pregnant actress has been the face of the knitwear company since September 2005, but she will be ending her contact with the firm later this year.
Reported on that matter, Women's Wear Daily (WWD) claimed Jolie will be replaced by four up-and-coming models who have already been unveiled in the fashion giant's fall print advertising campaigns, shot around New York City by Mark Seliger. Unlike the black-and-white images of Jolie shot by Mario Testino, the campaigns will be much more colorful.
"It was a great run we had," St. John's chief executive officer Glenn McMahon commented in a statement. "Three years is a long time to maintain any campaign, and we felt it was time to do something new and different. [The campaign] ties in nicely to our whole rebranding initiative."
St. John's fall 2008 ads will be launched in the August 2008 issue of Vanity Fair.
