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.

About Angel

Beware of Angels

In 1992, when he launched Angel, his very first perfume,
Thierry Mugler chose Estelle Lefebure. Perched atop a New York skyscraper,
wearing a black suit and enveloped in a blue muslin scarf, she began the saga
that Jerry Hall continued in 1995 dressed in a silver gown on the immaculate
dunes of White Sands National Park in New Mexico.

In 1998, Amy Wesson embodied a crystal angel echoing of the
most beautiful icon of all: Angel and its star-shaped bottle. Next was Anna
Maria Cseh's
dizzying portrayal in 2003, about to go over the edge,
surrounded by the chaos of night, fervently protecting her precious perfume.

In 2006, the Angel legend continued with Bianca Balti,
hypnotized by her own reflection after having put on the heady fragrance. In
2008, Angel reconnected with its original magic in a contemporary fairy tale
interpreted by the beautiful Naomi Watts.

In 2011, a new angel appears with Eva Mendes.
