  2. If Kouros was heavily marketed, who would you get to model it?

    I would commission Ben Affleck to do it, particularly with slept-in dress shirt look in Gone Girl. It's an odd choice, but I think his image would be congruous with that of Kouros.

    What would Audrey Hollander wear?

    If you don’t know who Audrey Hollander is, keep safesearch on. Redhead in Bed in name is apt, but the actual scent isn’t. I think the dirty honey of Miel de Bois would be so sexy on this dirty honey.
