Actress and U.N. refugee agency special envoy Angelina Jolie on Tuesday denounced the impunity with which rape is committed in conflict zones and the mistreatment of vulnerable women and children. Jolie spoke in Kenya to mark World Refugee Day. She visited a training center on how to prevent sexual violence in conflict and met with refugees from conflicts in Burundi, South Sudan, Somalia and Congo.
While most celebrities secure fashion and beauty endorsements left and right, Angelina Jolie has not been as keen to jump on board as the face of a brand. First of all, she's largely stayed out of the public eye following news about her divorce with Brad Pitt. Second, she's focused most of her appearances on being about her humanitarian work. That makes today's news all the more major: Guerlain Parfumeur announced Jolie as the face of their new fragrance for women, Mon Guerlain.
