Leave it to Penélope Cruz to make the sexiest foray into the directing world we've seen. For her, pregnancy was not a time to retreat from the spotlight and consume copious amounts of ice cream, carbs, and Netflix. Instead, the screen siren dedicated those nine months to designing her first line of lingerie for Agent Provocateur and directing the respective campaign video. Which, if you haven't a cold beverage or misting bottle by you, promptly get one before pressing play.
Cruz's vision for Agent Provocateur's lower-priced line of intimates, L'Agent, has a harem of women romping around a sleek bachelor pad in their luxe skivvies. Slow-motion pans around the house show off the entire collection, from bodice to corset to garter. Women hose themselves down, slink across the living room, and hang from the ceiling (what, you don't?).
Perhaps, it's the French namesake or Cruz's innate sex appeal, but hedonism has never been so, well, classy. Irina Shayk somehow manages to bring an air of sophistication to the whole naughty-officer archetype, too. Plus, a very pregnant Mónica Cruz makes a cameo along with Penélope Cruz's hubby, Javier Bardem. Now, we think a cold shower is in order. (Grazia)
