Watch Penelope Cruz’s Look-Alike Little Sister Mónica Strip For Agent Provocateur
Good genes clearly run in this family.
Dancer Monica Cruz, the 35-year-old younger sister of Academy Award-winning actress Penelope Cruz, is eliciting more than a few double-takes as the new face of Agent Provocateur’s Fall-Winter 2012 advertising campaign.
Titled “Wilhelmina: Show Your True Self,” the commercial is set in London and features Cruz uncovering her true self for a magical camera. “I wanted it to be romantic Goth, so it’s quite dark but quite beautiful,” Agent Provocateur’s creative director Sarah Shotton said of the photos that were shot in an old prison that’s believed to be haunted. “It’s nostalgic but true to the brand in dark shades of red and purple. It’s set in a Gothic underground space, brought alive by Mónica’s frenzied and fantastical performance. Mónica is a beautiful embodiment of the Agent Provocateur brand, knowingly sexy and empowered by her own sensuality.”
For her part, Monica looks sultry as ever, showing off her phenomenal physique and smooth moves in the lacy pieces, inspiring nothing but awe from the Agent Provocateur team. “She’s a professional dancer, a very sexy woman,” remarked Shotton. “I’ve never seen a woman move like that.”
Check out Cruz below as she rocks the campaign by posing on a velour chaise lounge, dangling from an old rusty chain, feeling on her curves, and more! Do you think these pictures would make Monica’s older sis Penelope proud?
