Boots No 7: “Amanda Foster” - 40s

Stuntwork is risky business. Performers endure falls, crashes, infernos, and all manner of dicey deeds ... all to ensure the leads make it to the premičre intact. Boots No 7 give one stunt pro top billing. Her name is Amanda Foster - and she's got a date with a glass window.

We've seen some thought-provoking work from this brand recently, enlisting the likes Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie for their insights. Here, actions speak louder than words. In a sector not known for vertiginous thrills, Smuggler's Susanne 'Night Manager' Bier ensures a premium rush as Foster makes her leap of faith.

It's a worthy companion to the Alessandra Ferri piece which caught our eye last year. The brand once again salutes those who refuse to let age govern their actions. While the advertised anti-aging cream only makes a brief cameo at the end, it's another noteworthy effort from the cosmetic line.
