Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are celebrity designers now. They've been working on a capsule collection for Asprey for a year, which means that in between UN conferences, orphanage visits in Africa and raising however many children they have, the not-human couple found time to design a $525 baby spoon. Their line, which aside from the baby spoon includes pave diamond snake rings, earrings and pendants, is called The Protector and inspired by snakes, or more specifically a non-Asprey snake ring Angelina wore while pregnant with her first child. Brad and Angelina are still super humans though, so all net profits from The Protector will go to Education Partnership for Children of Conflict which helps, "children who most need a safe place to learn, a place to heal, a place to learn reconciliation, a place to build a better future and a place — to just be children."
Angelina Jolie: Actress, Mother, U.N. Goodwill Ambassador and Designer?
When you think of actresses-turned-designers Angelina Jolie's name is not the first one that comes to mind. The Olsens? Sure. Emma Watson? That makes sense. But Jolie? Being Brad Pitt's partner, mother of an ever-expanding rainbow brood and her work as a U.N. ambassador stand out over her style (not that she doesn't look chic in those black drapey dresses). Nevertheless, Jolie is designing a jewelry line, WWD is reporting. The Tourist actress has teamed up with former Asprey CEO Robert Procop to create a line of statement jewelry. “These are pieces [Jolie] wears herself,” Procop told WWD of the collection, which includes "a pebble-size, pale green 353-carat beryl pendant, in a rose gold setting and worn on a chain of cushion shape beryl stones, and a graphic, tablet-shape 12.02-carat vivid green emerald ring set in rose gold." Jolie was reportedly inspired by "ancient tablet engravings" when she designed the ring (she designed a similar piece for Pitt).
