Celebrity sex tapes have become so prevalent and accessible, their release is as exciting as the daily weather forecast. Most tapes are ‘accidentally’ leaked onto the internet (as the starring celebs claim), but some are even going so far as to promote their recorded sex-capades in hopes of jump-starting their acting careers.
So it’s no wonder that Agent Provocateur has tapped into the public/private paradox of intimacy in showcasing their latest F/W 2010 lingerie collection. Set in what appears to be hotel room or bedroom, the series of 19 videos show incognito models turning on a video recorder and tantalizing the viewer(s) with a sultry reveal of Agent Provocateur’s sexiest creations.
The grainy, 30-second videos feature models donning new styles like the Maddy black sheer set with fuchsia silk accents, the Virginia plunge black mesh bra with electric blue floral embroidery, and two seductive corsets like the Melody basque with monochromatic black chevron pattern and the highly ornate Gretchen corset with its panels of alternating black and Bordeaux lace and gold fastening (all shown below).
What’s ingenious about AP’s new campaign is that the videos are shot to resemble home-made recordings, and the use of anonymous models leaves much to the imagination and storyline. Aptly named Private Tapes, the videos truly are a sensual voyeuristic experience.
Perhaps celebs should take a cue from the lingerie kingpin and realize that sometimes it’s best to leave something to the imagination.
Visit agentprovocateur.com to view the fall collection and the steamy vids. I should warn that they are definitely NSFW — unless, of course, you don’t mind an assembly line of co-workers peering into your cubicle.
