L'Agent AW14 Campaign Teaser

Penelope Cruz’s sizzling new film for Agent Provocateur

 has directed a racy new short film for the L’Agent by Agent Provocateur lingerie line she designs with her sister Monica Cruz.

The new campaign video for  is set in the burning desert, with model Jon Kortajarena playing a stranded traveler dying of thirst.

What could be better tonic than a bevy of beautiful sirens, driven by Cruz herself in a vintage car, who rock up and strip off their sportswear to reveal extremely alluring lingerie looks in lace, animal print, and bright colors!

Set to the pounding beat of “Single Dutch” by Optimist, the ladies strut their stuff with synchronized dance moves and skipping ropes, backed by drummers in military coats. But was it all a dream?

Like her previous film for L’Agent (above), which featured her Oscar-winning husband Javier Bardem, the video ends on a mysterious and humorous note.
