Tracy, CA (PRWEB) February 13, 2006
Leading men’s lifestyle portal Savvy.com has partnered with leading glamour photography brand Mystique Magazine, launching a series of pictorials that complement Savvy’s own weekly photo shoots. Savvy will publish Mystique pictorials created by master photographer Mark Daughn, starting this week with a photo and exclusive video shoot of gorgeous British model/actress Amiee Rickards.
Once a month, Savvy (http://www.savvy.com) will showcase the beautiful women of Mystique and Daughn’s seductive style. Since its creation in 1998, Mystique (http://www.mystique-magazine.com) has emerged as one of the leading brands specializing in sensual glamour photography photographed in some of the world’s most exotic locations. Positioned between Playboy and Victoria’s Secret, on the right side of the morality line, Mystique style is sexier than Victoria’s Secret, but not as revealing or explicit as Playboy. It features “women you could spend the rest of your life with”, perfectly complementing the women featured at Savvy.
Our debut Mystique pictorial of Amiee Rickards is the obvious choice to launch this new partnership. Amiee won the coveted title of Miss Mystique, which came with a $25,000 cash prize. She appears in the upcoming Sharon Stone thriller, Basic Instinct 2: Risk Addiction. With her close look-alike resemblance to Tomb Raider star Angelina Jolie, Amiee’s career has included playing ‘Brangelina’s’ Lara Croft character at conventions.
In her Savvy feature interview, she talks about the movie, winning Mystique’s top prize and her new life as an international sex symbol. Would she like to grab at any Tomb Raider sequels, now that Angelina’s about to be a new mother and seems to be out of action for a bit? “Oh, I would love to play a part like Lara Croft.” Can we hope to see her in a romp with Sharon Stone in the Basic Instinct sequel? ” Unfortunately, no. I don’t have a sex scene with Sharon, I’m a supporting actor in the movie.” Does Sharon still have it going on? “Oh yes. She has a body that 20-year-olds dream of”.
Savvy.com Managing Director Jonathan Gravenor said that the content collaboration is a strong complementary fit. “Savvy is growing fast but we will never sacrifice quality on our growth curve, from the outset we’ve set out to maintain high standards and work with quality partners. Mystique has an outstanding brand and reputation and Savvy readers will welcome their glamour location shoots. We’re looking forward to working together.”
Mystique publishes a monthly digital magazine through Zinio.com, as well as a bi-monthly hardcover book version,Mystical Sirens. Mystique also produces and licenses a range of branded collectibles including posters, DVDs and wall calendars. Posters are available through Scorpio Posters and Starmakers Rising, in stores such as Spencer Gifts and Tower Records. Mystique’s DVDs are available directly from its Sirens catalog division, and select titles are distributed by Image Entertainment to stores such as Wherehouse, Tower Records and Borders. Mystique’s award-winning calendars can be found in the Sirens catalog and in Calendar Club stores.
Mystique also produces original programming, such as its ‘Mystical Journeys’ and ‘Behind The Fantasy’ series. Mystique regularly provides programming to the nation’s top Pay Per View networks, such as TVN, LodgeNet, inDemand and Dish Network, and on IPTV (video over broadband) services such as Akimbo. In 2005, Mystique began filming exclusively in 1080i HD to supply HD networks such as inHD and Voom. Mystique also supplies stills and video content to some of the leading Mobile Phone networks, including through industry leader Brickhouse Mobile.
