Angelina Jolie's newest Harper's Bazaar cover shoot is extra special for a few reasons. For starters, the issue is an anniversary edition celebrating 150 years of the glossy. Jolie also skipped the traditional interview in favor of writing her own feature in the format of a letter to readers about both environmental and women's issues. Plus, the images were photographed in a place close to Jolie's heart: a nature reserve in Namibia run by her friends.
"For me, Namibia represents not only ties of family and friendship but also the effort to the balance between humans and the environment so crucial to our future," she writes in her letter. The most striking part of the cover images? The trio of cheetahs that joined Jolie on the beautiful cover, who had been orphaned and were rescued by The N/a’an ku sê Foundation. Get the full scoop on Jolie's wildlife conservation efforts, and every other issue she discusses, over at Harper's Bazaar.
