Eva Mendes was in New York City Thursday for the launch of her new campaign for Angel perfume by Thierry Mugler. Mendes is the new face of the scent; Naomi Watts had been since 2008.

X17 snapped Eva leaving her hotel and looking pretty in a print dress. Mendes told reporters at the event that she'd rather be called cute than hot:

    "I’d rather be on team cute because I think it’s harder to be cute. ... when a guy pays me that compliment of being cute or adorable that feels like a real compliment, because being hot I think is all smoke and mirrors. ... I think it takes more personality to be cute so I think it’s more of a deeper compliment."

As part of the campaign, Mendes sang a song for the commercial! Check out the behind-the-scenes video after the jump and tell us what you think of her voice!
