Today, Miu Miu announces that the face of its first-ever fragrance (name not yet revealed) is Stacy Martin — an actress who was last seen in the Lars von Trier film Nymphomaniac wearing a prosthetic vagina. Martin was photographed by Steven Meisel for the campaign, looking polished and sophisticated but with an undercurrent of a dark edge. In a press release, the brand said, “Martin is Miu Miu personified. Martin’s artistic rigor and iconoclastic spirit align perfectly with the woman Prada envisions for the brand: at once refined and rebellious, but above all, fearless.” (Emphasis their own.) No details have been released on how the fragrance smells, but look for the first ads in September.
