When we decided to add a lifestyle section to eMercedesBenz, we knew immediately that we wanted to add a category highlighting the awe-inspiring majesty of the female form. In the past there’s been a variety of women featured on the site in connection with Mercedes; unfortunately, the majority are displayed in the typical Vogue-esque style, if you will. For a practical example, check out this story and you’ll see exactly what I mean. I’m sure there’s a plenty of people that dig that sort of thing; I’m not one of them, nor are the rest of the staff. So instead, we decided to change course a bit, and we’re going to be bringing you women that we feel exemplify beauty.
Selecting our first woman was actually surprising easy. When I heard last week that John Hamm (aka Don Draper in AMC’s ‘Mad Men’) has been tapped as the new voice for Mercedes-Benz USA, I thought to myself “Isn’t that the guy that works with January Jones, the incredibly sexy 32 year-old that graced the cover of GQ’s November issue?” Indeed it is, and with that, our selection for the first ever woman featured on eMercedesBenz is complete.
