Known for their luxurious and sexy lingerie, Agent Provocateur has just launched its new Betty Sue campaign featuring Kirsty Hume in a a two minute film by Ridley Scott's production company, RSA. The short film accompanies a print campaign and lookbook of filmic stills (all shown in this post) and video shorts. These individual elements of the campaign support an Autumn/Winter 2010 lingerie collection which takes inspiration from strong female protagonists from late 20th Century Hollywood cinema.
First, the images of the new lingerie collection from the Agent Provocateur Look Book. Shot as if you were peeking into a private hotel room via the peep hole, the images purposely obscure the face of the model and allow you to focus on her well-endowed body, clad in the new lingerie.

The "Peeping Tom"-like look book images above each have a very sexy 20 second film accompanying them on the website.

The short film for the campaign, "Betty Sue" features the stunning and sexy Kirsty Hume donning a red wig:
Agent Provocateur's Creative Director, Sarah Shotton, explains the casting of Kirsty Hume as Betty Sue: "Kirsty became a top model in the 1990s. She represents our perfect woman, a woman with a family that oozes unbelievable intelligence, sensuality, personality and confidence. She has a film noir, feline quality to her that I felt had a brilliant synergy with Agent Provocateur."

Director RSA UK's Johan Renck says 'I enjoy knickers, they are a glorious garment. We all do the most we can to get as close to knickers as possible.'
