Mylene Jampanoi for Agent Provocateur. Why we dig French chicks
Agent Provocateur this week unveiled the new face of the lingerie brand.
Introducing Mylene Jampanoi – she’s half-French, half-Chinese.
But more importantly, she is stunning with a smoking hot bod.
The actress is already a big name on the other side of the Channel and has starred in films such as Gainsbourg and Hereafter.
So it’s no surprise AP have snapped her up for this soft-focus Emanuelle-style campaign.
We love the new style and that AP is bringing something softer and more subtle to the table.
It was shot by Jordan Scott (offspring of Ridley). Watch this space for a new generation of great directing!
And Ff readers are in for a treat as we have also stumbled on some juicy behind-the-scenes gossip.
An insider told Ff: ‘Shooting those poor women outdoors/indoors at Chiswick House Conservatory at the beginning of November meant many heaters needed to be deployed to keep them from looking like plucked turkeys.
‘Oh and they needed keen PA’s with thermals and blankets……cue a great deal of ‘charitable’ young men offering their services.
‘And we learnt how one approaches the delicate matter of gusset management – with kid gloves. Thank God for stylists with no scruples!
‘Another difficult straight to navigate is eye-line; there is a fine balance in keeping your eye on the ball (so to speak) and oogling the ball.
‘In keeping with the throwback to the 70’s and a vintage feel to the films, we embraced old techniques with cameras including using silk stocking over the lense.’
It definitely worked!
