Hedi Slimane Shot Angelina Jolie for June Issue of 'Elle'

The 16-page portfolio will appear in 'Elle' editions around the globe.

Hedi Slimane was a prolific photographer long before his days as creative director of Saint Laurent.

In addition to his personal online portfolio, he's shot covers for Dazed and Confused, AnOther, T and Vogue Russia, as well as ad campaigns for Prada and Saint Laurent (the latter after he came on board at the house). Now he can add Elle to that list, having shot "Maleficent" star Angelina Jolie for the magazine's June cover, with a 16-page editorial to accompany it.

The actress and humanitarian has shown her support for Slimane's work at Saint Laurent before—remember that tuxedo she wore to the BAFTAs this year?—and she wears the label throughout the entire photo shoot, including a number of pieces that were designed just for her. The editorial will appear in 20 international editions of Elle around the world, and while it gives us Saint Laurent ad campaign vibes (see photo below), it's impossible to deny how beautiful Jolie is throughout.

The June issue of Elle will hit newsstands nationwide on May 20, but you can head to now for a preview of the editorial.
