There’s another angel among us: actress Eva Mendes is the new face of Thierry Mugler’s fragrance for women, Angel. Previously working her sex appeal for Calvin Klein jeans and flaunting her toned physique for Reebok EasyTone, Mendes follows in the footsteps of the French brand’s most recent spokeswoman, Naomi Watts, who’d served as the face of the scent since 2008. “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,” the company said in a statement. “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.” According to WWD, the actress will appear in worldwide ads for the scent beginning in September.Tell us: What do you think of Mendes’s new role? –Kim Peiffer
