‘God, I’m so un-French in that trailer,’ she admitted to The Telegraph.

When asked why she was invited to front the fragrance, which has seen the likes of supermodel Linda Evangelista previously represent it, Emily said: ‘I don’t know. I’ve no idea. Perhaps ‘there was no one else?’

‘I’d been asked to do a couple of things but none were as classy as this,’ she explains before adding, ‘And I got to work with a leopard. ’
