Eva Mendes, the New Face of Angel by Thierry Mugler
by Daniel Haim
To begin a new chapter in his galaxy, the legendary designer and master perfumer has once again chosen an international star to represent this iconic scent. Strong one moment and demure the next, both femme fatale and spontaneous, Eva Mendes personifies the very facets of sensuality encompassing Angel.
While Naomi Watts’ ethereal beauty embodied the angelic aspect of the fragrance, Thierry Mugler chose to reignite the enticing and explosive dimensions of the fragrance with the sultry Mendes.
Though her obviously flawless physical beauty is in perfect harmony with the artist’s aesthetic canon – Ms. Mendes mesmerized Mugler with her independence, determination and humor.
From her attention grabbing performance in ‘Training Day’ (Antoine Fuqua) to ‘We Own the Night’ (James Gray), this young American has gone on to undertake many other prestigious roles (The Other Guy, Hitch…), working with the greats Frank Millier, the Farrelly brothers to name a few. There is not a role Eva Mendes cannot play, from drama to comedy, independent films and blockbusters. Her most recent film, ‘Last Night’ (Massy Tadjedin) with Guillaume Canet, Keira Knightley and Sam Worthington, released in 2010.
