the 'Secretary' for Agent Provocateur

When i first read that Maggie Gyllenhaal would be the one to replace Kate Moss i was thrilled! (Not that i preferred Kate off this throne, but comparing to Daisy Lowe i 've just loved it.) Being so excited with the new Miss X and having admired her at one of my favourite movies- Secretary, i was waiting for something m a j o r (aesthetically speaking). Instead, seeing the photo shoot below i got quite disappointed. It feels like a cheap production with a B*-sense of sensuality. Maggie is so pretty and fresh and i really can't see why and how they managed to turn her into a wannabe sexy old vamp-lady.

..Are you feelin' me?







B*-sense: accordingly to B-movie

I completely see your point actually. The one of her on the shagpile rug is okay, but none of it seems that original.

It's a bit weird that they chose a "secetary" style chair. Bit of an obvious direction to go in...

But other than this, I'm glad they've chosen Maggie, she's such an unconventional choice.

it's true, i'm not really getting genuine sexiness from her - i don't feel intimacy i these pics. as an actress and a person, i'm sure she has it in her, but they went about it perhaps the wrong way. less on the surface might have been better...

that 3rd one is so embarrasingly awful, & the last picture not bad for editorial but not great for an ad campaign to sell "sexy" lingerie
