The latest celeb-turned-designer? It's Angelina Jolie. Jolie has just launched her own high-end jewelry line "Style of Jolie," co-created with Beverly Hills-based jeweler Robert Procop, E! Online is reporting. Procop, you'll remember, is the same jeweler Brad Pitt worked with to design Jolie's engagement ring. Of course, with human rights activist Jolie, there's more to it than a passing interest in design.
So no big deal but ANGELINA JOLIE AND BRAD PITT ARE ENGAGED! Reportedly. While this news hasn't been confirmed by their reps, a press release landed
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).
