Living Art: Hedi Slimane Shoots Angelina Jolie for ELLE

French fashion designer Hedi Slimane might be most famous for his work that parades down runways, but Saint Laurent‘s creative director is also an avid and established photographer. And with the arrival of ELLE‘s June issue, we’ll get to see one of his most beautiful shoots – and subjects: Angelina Jolie.

Slimane shot the Maleficent star for a 16-page editorial portfolio, throughout which Jolie is styled in tailored, and often menswear-inspired, Saint Laurent looks. Stunning as they promise to be, Slimane’s photos aren’t the only reason we’re eager to crack open the issue when it arrives in our mailbox. The famously private Jolie is said to have spoken candidly to ELLE‘s deputy editor, Maggie Bullock, about life with her six growing kids, her humanitarian work, and even how she and partner Brad Pitt keep their romance revved up in the midst of it all. Slimane’s black-and-white portraits are an alluring depiction of a woman whose life is anything but.
