We've all had that dream...you know the one...where you walk around an expensive hotel, where gorgeous women strut around in nothing but lingerie.... Okay, maybe you haven't had that dream, but that's basically the entire "plot" of Penelope Cruz's directorial debut, a five minute short film for her L'Agent line of naughty clothing for Agent Provocateur.

We've all had that dream...you know the one...where you walk around an expensive hotel, where gorgeous women strut around in nothing but lingerie.... Okay, maybe you haven't had that dream, but that's basically the entire "plot" of Penelope Cruz's directorial debut, a five minute short film for her L'Agent line of naughty clothing for Agent Provocateur.

Featuring actress/model Irina Shayk and her husband Javier Bardem in a little cameo role, the short is certainly very well shot and looks really good, but it's also just like every other fashion short, kind of nonsensical and vapid too. "Written" by Cruz as well, it hinges on a pretty paper thin narrative (such as it is), but mostly, it's a lot of models showing off a lot of skin (hence NFSW, you don't want to watch this at the office) as the creators proclaim this stuff can be worn by anyone. Right. Anyway, check out the short below, followed by the making-of video. [Gawker]
