The one and only Angelina Jolie takes the cover of British Vogue Magazine‘s March 2021 edition lensed by fashion photographer Craig McDean. In charge of styling was fashion editor Edward Enninful, with set design from Stefan Beckman. Beauty is work of hair stylist Lorenzo Martin, makeup artist Rachel Goodwin, and manicurist Ashlie Johnson.
It’s called Know Your Rights (And Claim Them). We want to help young people to identify who or what is blocking them from accessing their human rights, and how to try to overcome that. The message to young people is, no one has the right to harm you, to silence you.
Young people are engaged and ready to fight. But there is a level of misinformation we never faced growing up. We want the book to help give them the tools to strengthen their fight and empower them in a very practical way.
Maybe it’s just the young punk in me, but I like the spirit of the youth. I believe they can see right and wrong with more clarity. I see a lot of older people making excuses for certain behaviours, and it tends to be the younger person who is quicker to say, “But this is simply wrong, and we stand against it.” I’ve wanted to remain that person. – Jolie on her book for children and young adults
For the first cover Angelina is wearing a coat and skirt by Max Mara, a Sablyn camisole, Ralph Lauren shoes and jewellery by Hoorsenbuhs, Jennifer Fisher and Anita Ko, and for the second Burberry poloneck, Max Mara trousers, Chanel shoes, earrings by Maria Tash & Jacquie Aiche and bracelet and ring by Anita Ko.
Angelina Jolie teamed up with Amnesty International for For Know Your Rights (And Claim Them) book, that will be published in September 2021. The book is aimed at children 13 years and up, and sets out the main groups of rights and how they apply in the real world in relation to a range of issues including freedom of expression, gender and racial equality, health, a clean climate and a sustainable environment.
