St. John & Angelina Jolie Part Ways

Angelina Jolie will no longer be the face of St. John, the brand’s chief executive officer says.

Replacing Ang is British model Karen Elson (pictured), who will provide a more modern view of St. John, CEO Glenn McMahon told WWD.

“[Angelina] overshadowed the brand,” Glenn explained. “We wanted to make a clean break from actresses and steer away from blondes and cleanse the palette.”

  • TRUTH HURTS.

    Angelina’s beauty and grace outshines every actress in Hollywood. Brad is a lucky man to have a complete woman.

  • besane

    Angelina is an actress first, and doesn’t need to model for clothing. I enjoyed their catalog while she was on it, but their clothing is so boring. They can use the no-personality models for their boring clothes.

  • Marla from Texas

    Mr. McMahon—–Thank you for being honest. Angie’s beauty overshadows everything. Clint Eastwood said the same thing when she was filming Challenging. Sometimes her beauty overshadows her acting.

    Brad Pitt tells Us Weekly that he was very surprised to learn the news of his pregnancy. Sources tell us ” Angelina is not happy because Brad doesn’t know who the Baby fathermother is. He came clean and told her he had slept with Tiger woods and George clooney in the same night. she is willing to try and make it work for the children. “

    Angelina & Brad are the best thing that ever happened to Jared. He couldn’t keep this site up and running if not for them. Every night before he goes to bed Jared gets on his knees (mind out of the gutter, Daughter of a Hollywood Legend) and thanks God for Brangelina.

  • Alissa

    A couple of years ago, they say that she saved the company from bankruptcy. But, that was then…

    Of course, the St John ads were heavily photoshopped, including erasing her vile prison tattoos. But, you know, it’s pretty hard to erase all of her trashy aspects.

    .
    Angie DID overshadow “the brand.” She also made them a buttload of money and saved their asses from bankruptcy. They went from running in the red the year before he adds started running to being back in the black with over $400 million in annual sales. All the while Angie’s ads were plastered all over the world – from billboards to magazines. Funny how the company’s prez forgot to mention that little item. Plus, they promised Angie they’d create a children’s charity with her, but never made good on their promise. The final year of her contract they made a large donation to the Jolie-Pitt Foundation instead. Yet another little item the prez forgot to mention.

  • Naima

    Good, while she is beautiful I’m not ok with women like this who don’t have a “healthy” look getting campaigns like this. Heroin chic is over and the fashion industry needs to stop peddling this look as acceptable and normal.

    I know all of you who are OBSESSED with her, because at this point you stick up for her as if she’s the second coming, are not going to like these comments but its true. Ms. Jolie is stunning but looks unhealthy, she needs to get back to her Lara Croft days, she was perfect then, she looked good and was HEALTHY.

    i love the new model, but i love Angie more! Looking at the ads when Angelina was in them, she did shine more than the average model would, because hello-Shes Angelina Jolie! Still, i think they would have had more looking at their ads if Angie was in them

    It’s what she does. It’s her thing.
    -
    “Pitt was keen to be the center of attention as he arrived on the red carpet at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood; but Jolie, literally hogged the spotlight.”

    That ginger Brit b!tch better stay away or I’ll claw her effin’ eyes out.

    Daughter of a Hollywood Legend, you are so predictable. Oh, and who are you fooling. Unless they start selling their stuff at Wal-Mart, you aren’t buying it. LOL.

    @yep: Brad Pitt will have all the attention he wants now that he’s the second pregnant man.

    Smart move. Now if only others could follow your example and start ditching these actresses who are stealing jobs away from models and overshadowing brands with their excess celebrity image.

    @ Newsflash

    I don’t like brad or angie but that is just mean. You will never look that good when you get to Brad’s age so stop making an a** out of yourself.

  • lurker

    so funny how trolls have a melt down on every thread

  • Lisa Marie

    @Afrika: ohhh You sad now that Brad’s belly is probably the same size as Gerard Butlers? lmao He needs to hit the gym. I don’t feel bad for making fun of his food baby because his fame was based on his looks. He’s not Daniel day lewis who’s fame is based on his outstanding acting.
