"We are delighted to have Milla Jovovich in Baku. We came up with the idea while we were looking for a brand ambassador that would reflect the brand values of Milla - premium, healthy and innovative.

In the last few years we had many famous visitors in Baku, but this is the first Hollywood A-class celebrity brand endorsement, proving Azerbaijan's emergence as a progressive and rich marketing environment.”
