Monsieur Le Smoking Jacket, aka Hugh Hefner, should be very happy. 'Boardwalk Empire' star Paz de la Huerta is lensed by first class photographer Mario Sorrenti for the January/February issue of Playboy. I suspect that success of Treats! is getting under his skin. It's seriously doubtful that Playboy will ever attract the female audience enjoyed by Treats! but this editorial is a welcome edition to the magazine. I don't even know -- does Playboy still print on cheap paper or have they upgraded it?
Paz is very comfortable in her own nude skin tells Playboy:
“I feel that when people hire me they know it’s going to be a collaboration and that they hire me for what I give on all sorts of levels, from my movement to the emotion I bring to the project, the passion, all of it," she tells Playboy in its January/February double issue, on sale Dec. 18.
Speaking of Sorrenti, who understands the art of photographng sensual women and enhancing their self love, De la Huerta says:
"I did my first nude shoot with Mario when I was 17. He made me feel beautiful, and I really feel it was on that shoot that I overcame my fear of being maked. Mario is such an artist. He has taken photographs of me in which my body looks like a sculpture."
"We did the photos with no makeup, and we both wanted them to have a very natural feeling." the actress continues. "It was more about bringing out a part of myself that has not really been shown to the public."
