A new Angel

Since Thierry Mugler's Angel perfume launched way back in 1992 it has become something of a fragrance favourite with sugary sweet-smelling women around the world. Naomi Watts has been the face of the brand since 2008 but Grazia reports that she is soon to be replaced by actress and Calvin Klein siren, Eva Mendes.

Naomi needn't feel too sensitive about the change - Thierry Mugler has regularly changed the face of the fragrance since it launched. A company spokesperson told WWD: '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.

It's not all about aesthetics though, oh no, apparently Eva has just right 'Angelic' personality too: '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 humour.'
