Angel Thierry Mugler Video

Angel, the movie:
A break from the traditional visual expression of Angel,
an unprecedented style in the world of perfume.

Born from the explosion of a star in the infinite blue of the cosmos, a woman takes shape before our very eyes: a silhouette on the move. She walks towards us with a determined stride, stepping through the waves and strata, visual metaphors of the ANGEL effects, brought with her from her celestial journey. These transformations give form to her femininity as she arrives before us, confident, triumphant and bold. A powerful woman, still half draped in sky blue… This is the triumph rather than the birth of Venus. She carries her favorite star like a trophy, the emblem of her addiction.”
Christophe de Lataillade, Creative Director, Clarins Fragrance Group


The image of ANGEL takes a radical departure with the choice of its new face, Georgia May Jagger, and graphic design. While breaking away from previous campaigns and traditional advertising, it is in perfect keeping with the bold and daring style that makes the iconic brand stand out. Evoking the multiple facets of the fragrance without apparent chronology, the story proposes various “effects” traversed by a woman: it attempts to visually express the abstract reality, dream-like atmosphere or subjective perception of a fragrance. From Norwegian director Sølve Sundsbø, this film is infused with strong emotional power and modernity.

“Metamorphosis is at the heart of all Muglerian projects and is clearly at the heart of Angel. The ANGEL effect is the metamorphosis of a woman who expresses the different facets of the fragrance: the celestial facet, which we might even call cosmic, the delicious facet and the voluptuous facet. This effect expresses the universality of youth and speaks to us all in a completely new language. ”

“This film is, by far, the most difficult and the most complex of any that the Brand has made, with five simultaneous sets, including one with our new muse.”
Christophe de Lataillade, Creative Director, Clarins Fragrance Group



ANGEL, a woman who is « part-angel, part-demon »

Sure of her power, the ANGEL woman steps onto center stage like a fascinating diva. She is, above all, a bewitching seductress, a triumphant woman who hides her game well: she is not necessarily the angel we think she is… She is part-angel and part-demon, characterized by a subtle mixture of strength and fragility: sometimes daring, sometimes fragile, but always surprising.

She commits to the different facets of her personality and femininity with captivating insolence. She makes the most of her assets with a continuous array of dizzying transformations. Seductive, ultra-feminine or provocatively bewitching, both strong and fragile, she wavers between delicacy and sensuality, gentleness and power. Bold, confident, conquering and impertinent, she spurns banality and opts for this captivating and fascinating heroine.

« For me, the Mugler brand embodies a strong and confident woman, as well as a form of creativity that you cannot classify ». Georgia May Jagger

A dazzling rising star in the world of fashion and beauty, Georgia May Jagger is instantly recognizable by her full pout; already an acknowledged style icon at just 22 years old, she has won over the top international fashion magazines: British Vogue, American Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Dazed and Confused, I.D., Purple, LOVE, W Magazine…

The choice of Georgia May Jagger ushers in a new era in the ANGEL legend and was entirely self-evident… since her mother, Jerry Hall, already had a close connection to the brand’s history: a regular at Thierry Mugler’s couture shows, she was ANGEL’s emblematic muse from 1995 to 1997.


« I was completely painted blue for the film and I really liked doing something crazy like that... People tend to reproduce the same things, when it’s so much fun doing something different ». Georgia May Jagger

How to Re-route Body Comparisons

Before we dig in, a very important caveat: To be human is to compare. It is a very rare person who can move through life without comparing her success, relationships, wealth, experiences and -- of course -- body and beauty to those around her. It is an even rarer person who can view herself in isolation and still feel connected to society and her fellow human beings. We all compare. We all get jealous. We absolutely cannot help it because we are hard-wired to be curious about people other than ourselves and to see how we measure up. Do not beat yourself up for comparing. Do, however, consider how to react once you've started down the comparative path.
What do we gain by comparing bodies?
So, you've found yourself comparing your body to someone else's. What are you likely to learn from this exercise?
  • That bodies come in a variety of shapes, sizes and configurations.
  • That most bodies have aspects in common.
  • That every person has features she loves and features she does not love.
You may be tempted to assign value based on your comparisons, deeming certain body parts or traits to be "better" or "worse" than those possessed by your object of comparison. Do your best to avoid this. Bodies are not fundamentally good or bad, no matter what the media and the diet industry want you to believe. You may be bigger or smoother or taller or less symmetrical than someone else, but one is not categorically and essentially better than the other. In fact, at the molecular level, you are the same. If you compare, focus on diversity and overlap instead of yielding to the temptation to assign positive or negative values.
What do we lose by comparing bodies?
Say you succumb to comparative evaluation. What do you lose when you compare your body to someone else's and decide whose is better?
Individuality: By rating one type of body as better, you are relegating all others to worse. But, in fact, each body is unique and lumping sizes or shapes together dismisses that essential individuality.
Power: Your body has strengths, capabilities and talents. By comparing it to a body with totally different strengths, capabilities and talents -- most of which are not readily observable -- you may begin to devalue what your body can do and achieve. Comparing bodies can strip you of feeling powerful and capable, feelings that are essential to self-esteem.
Perspective on what's truly important: You can tell virtually nothing about a person by viewing her body. You don't know how happy or healthy she is, what is going on in her life or who or what is challenging her. Deciding that her body is better or worse than yours dismisses her personality, life experience, and essential self. Deciding that her body is better or worse than yours also dismisses YOUR non-body attributes.
Body comparisons can be more harmful to some people than others, but they will hold a dark side for the vast majority of us. If you are able to compare in a relatively detached and scientific way, noting variety and differences without assigning them emotional or social value, you are in the lucky minority. If you, instead, find yourself comparing, judging and spiraling downward, consider directing your thoughts away from comparison by reminding yourself of your individuality, power and personal strengths and values. Women are so often told -- directly and indirectly -- that our value is encompassed by our bodies, beauty, figures and physical selves. But, of course, it is not. While our looks can tie into our self-esteem and confidence, they are not our only sources of power. Remembering that can defuse some body comparison situations.
Again, comparison is a natural instinct, so don't go thinking you can eradicate it or avoid it entirely. But see if these suggestions might help the next time you get caught in a comparative-evaluative body spiral.
