Maleficent: Mistress of Evil star Angelina Jolie takes the cover of ELLE Magazine‘s (American and British issues) September 2019 edition captured by fashion photographer Alexi Lubomirski. In charge of styling was Elizabeth Stewart, with set design from Jack Flanagan at the Wall Group, and production by Nathalie Akiya at Kranky Produktions. Beauty is work of hair stylist Adam Campbell at the Wall Group, makeup artist Toni G for Joe Blasco Cosmetics, and manicurist Emi Kudo for OPI.
“Looked at in this light, “wicked women” are just women who are tired of injustice and abuse. Women who refuse to follow rules and codes they don’t believe are best for themselves or their families. Women who won’t give up on their voice and rights, even at the risk of death or imprisonment or rejection by their families and communities. If that is wickedness, then the world needs more wicked women.
But it is also true that women don’t wake up every morning wanting to fight. We want to be able to be soft and nurturing and graceful and loving — not everyone is born to fight. And we don’t have magical powers. What we do have is the ability to support one another, and to work with the many great men who value and respect women as their equals.” – Jolie for ELLE
