Angelina Jolie Covers Harper’s Bazaar’s 50th Anniversary Collector’s Edition Issue

Posted on October 12, 2017

Angelina Jolie covers Harper’s Bazaar‘s 50th Anniversary Collector’s edition issue photographed by Alexi Lubomirski and styled by Fashion Editor Jennifer Rade. The photo shoot took place at a wildlife sanctuary in Namibia, the N/a’an ku sê Wildlife Sanctuary, which is run by Angelina’s friends of 16 years, Marlice and Rudie van Vuuren.

 

 

On what Namibia represents to her: “For me, Namibia represents not only ties of family and friendship but also the effort to the balance between humans and the environment so crucial to our future.”

On our individual and collective impact on the environment: “Fashion was once a major factor in encouraging the demands for clothes, jewelry or objects made from wildlife parts. But magazines can now send a different message: that wild animals belong in the wild, and ivory is not beautiful unless on the tusk of a living animal…Each of us has the power to make an impact through our everyday choices. For instance, we can commit to never buying illegal wildlife products such as ivory and rhino horn. We can end the demand for wild animals as pets.”

On the link between the environment and women’s rights: “Women make up most of the world’s poor…when the environment is damaged—for example when fishing stocks are destroyed, wildlife is killed by poachers, or tropical forests are bulldozed—it deepens their poverty. Women’s education and health are the first things to suffer.”

On what her life experience has taught her: “If my life experience has taught me anything, it is only what you stand for, and what you choose to stand against, that defines you. As the San people say: you are never lost if you can see your path to the horizon.”
