Eva Mendes Replaces Naomi Watts as Mugler’s Top Angel

Over the weekend a changing of the guards of sorts was held at New York’s IAC building with current spokesperson Naomi Watts handing over the reigns to Eva Mendes who is now the official Angel for Thierry Mugler’s new Angel Eau de Toilette and the classic Eau de Parfum. Mr. Mugler himself was in attendance to thank Watts for her faithful stewardship of the brand and to welcome Mendes into her new role. “I have a great memory from Angel, having spent a long passage of time with these people” Watts told assembled media “The fragrance is strong, gives you confidence, and it’s not overpowering.”

The Eau de Toilette ad campaign will begin in earnest this fall and will feature Mendes singing Noel Harrison’s The Windmills of Your Mind backed by a 30 piece orchestra. Though Mendes has a great deal of experience as an actress she is not known for her voice, however those who’ve had the opportunity to take a sneak peak at the Eau de Toilette campaign seem confident that all might change soon. Asked to comment on what it was like crooning for Mugler’s fragrances Mendes was quoted as saying “I had a blast.” Mendes is scheduled to use her pipes again soon, this time on the silver screen where she will reportedly be starring in a film about the life of opera legend Maria Callas.

Less than two weeks prior Eau de Toilette released images of the first series of photos for the campaign, featuring Mendes looking absolutely stunning in a custom made Mugler dress. The only question left now is if Angel Eua de Toilette will be able to rise to the same level as the deeply loved classics whose family it is now joining.
