Actress Rachel Weisz has emerged as the fresh new face of Bulgari's sensual fragrance Jasmin Noir. The actress, who married actor Daniel Craig June 22 in a secret ceremony, was recently spotted in Pasadena, CA at a Bulgari shoot with photographers Mert Atlas and Marcus Piggott. This campaign is Weisz's first with the company.
The ads feature Weisz posed nude with a lion, dripping with Bulgari's signature jewels. The lion reportedly represents nobility, elegance, and pride, while the jewels, including a yellow gold cocktail ring with 39.64 carats of citrine quartz and a pink gold watch with pave diamonds, certainly speak for themselves.
Weisz is following in the footsteps of several other actresses, including Kirsten Dunst and Julianne Moore, whom both posed naked with live animals in ads for Bulgari's sister fragrances Mon Jasmin Noir and Eccentric Charisma. The jewelry house's perfume line was launched in 1990.
According to a statement released by Bulgari, Weisz's ad campaign will feature "an intense and profound story full of allure and seduction." Photography duo Mert & Marcus opted for a sophisticated theme, crafting the set to model an "elegant boudoir."
Weisz's exotic new Jasmin Noir advertisement will go public in August.
