“[Jolie] overshadowed the brand,” chief executive officer Glenn McMahon told WWD. “We wanted to make a clean break from actresses and steer away from blondes and cleanse the palette.” Does that mean Angie is dirty?

The company decided to hire model Karen Elson (who, incidentally, is married to White Stripes singer Jack White), saying, "We needed to show a modern point of view of St. John." Ooohh, snap, Angie, they called you old-fashioned! “We have evolved,” he added.
