Angelina Jolie is stunning on the January cover of Marie Claire.

What better way to start out the New Year than with a little Angelina Jolie?

The actress, whose directorial début, In the Land of Blood and Honey, just fetched a Golden Globe nomination, is featured in all her pouty-lipped glory for the January issue of Marie Claire.

The Louis Vuitton campaign star wows in a one-shouldered blue Akris top that plays off her stunning eyes for the Alexei Hay-lensed cover shoot, while her gold statement ring is from Vita Fede.

The inside fashion spread, meanwhile, offers close-up headshots (shocker—she's absolutely gorgeous) as well as black and white snaps of her in director mode while wearing designs from Anne Valerie Hash, Elie Saab, DKNY, and Salvatore Ferragamo.

She also opens up about falling into acting ("is it too late to be something else?"), preferring home life to going out with girlfriends, and, of course, being madly in love with a certain handsome actor.

"Brad has expanded my life in ways I never imagined," she tells the magazine. "We built a family. He is not just the love of my life, he is my family."

Speaking of family, Jolie doesn't rule out the possibility of expanding hers.

"Nothing planned at the moment, but we just don't know," the mother of six says. "I could end up pregnant."

Well, if anyone can make minivans look cool, it's these two.
