Before you start celebrating, Eva Mendes will not be donning wings and strutting her stuff on the Victoria's Secret runway. Instead, she's been named the new face of Thierry Mugler's perfume Angel.
She takes over from Naomi Watts who was the brand's face since 2008. The company says Mugler decided to go in a different direction with his choice of Eva. They said:
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.
Eva's ads start appearing worldwide in September.
