She acts, she models, she sings? Eva Mendes is not just the stunning face of Thierry Mugler Angel parfum and eau de toilette, she’s the voice of it as well, which makes it her most personal collaboration to date! Mendes tells PEOPLE of her work with Angel, “It’s felt like a very true partnership. Whether it’s working with the designs, the concept … I sing in the commercial which is something very new for me as far as doing it professionally. From beginning to end, it’s been unbelievable.” She also raves of filming the commercial with director Baillie Walsh, who shot the stunning actress in Prague, a city she describes as “very romantic.” Mendes explains, “I was taken by its intense but kind of subtle beauty. It’s not in-your-face, it’s just there, it’s so gorgeous. And super romantic.” A perfect setting for a commercial that sees Mendes dreaming away in a sleek train car, with visions of herself flying gracefully through the air floating through her mind. And while she coos away above the images, the actress actually has no dialogue in the commercial, which suits her just fine. “That’s actually my favorite. I’m probably the anti-actress in the sense that I always go to my directors and ask, ‘Can we lose this line?’ We have too much dialogue at times so conveying something with your body language, and your eyes, and your behavior to me that’s really exciting so it’s like a nice, fun acting exercise.” Look for Mendes’s commercial for Angel (with her debut vocals!) to break digitally in mid-September, but in the meantime, go behind the scenes of her film and print campaigns here. –Melissa Liebling-Goldberg
