Paz de la Huerta face of Agent Provocateur

Paz de la Huerta has been named the newest face and body of Agent Provocateur.

The American actress-and-model is best known for her role of Lucy Danziger in the HBO television series Boardwalk Empire.

The 26-year-old star appears in both a print campaign, shot by Johan Renck, and a series of short films which are set to launch on the Agent Provocateur website next month.

Paz is a former muse of American fashion designer Zac Posen and the sultry brunette put her style credentials to good use in the luxury brand's newest campaign.

"We always try and choose girls that are true Agent Provocateurs, and she definitely is AP through and through," Sarah Shotton, the brand's creative director told WWD.

"She's got an amazing body and she's naturally very, very sexy."

Paz is famed for her wild antics. She was famously denied access to the prestigious Golden Globes after-party in January for being too drunk, and last month she pleaded guilty to one count of second-degree harassment after a bar brawl.

Shotton says the star's risqué behaviour attracted the brand's executives.

"We wanted [the campaign] to be a little more riskier in a way," she explained.

"I thought, Why don't we do a campaign that celebrates that you're wearing Agent Provocateur a guide to how to strategically flash your lingerie?"
