Paz de la Huerta Storms New York

Marcus Gaab Shoots the Boardwalk Empire Star as a Lost Brazilian Princess

Brazen beauty Paz de la Huerta (Boardwalk Empire, Enter the Void) stars in today’s exclusive film, shot by photographer Marcus Gaab over a mad six hours in New York City. De la Huerta, who grew up in the creative heart of downtown Manhattan, is known for a tendency to shed her clothes (though she dresses up nicely as Zac Posen's muse). She had previously been described to Gaab as “crazy.” He ran with it, trailing her around the city as she played the lost Brazilian princess “Paloma,” a character she created herself. “She’s like the weather,” says Gaab. “You just have to deal with what she’s doing. We had to invent tricks, and sometimes I had to keep on filming or shooting so she had something to focus on, because otherwise you don’t know what she’s going to do next.” The film documents the adventure the pair had while shooting the cover story for the latest, princess-themed issue of I Love You magazine, an innovative, highly personal print project and blog. I Love You is masterminded by Gaab’s spouse Christiane Bördner; together they run the Berlin-based design agency and consultancy Agentur E, working for clients such as Stone Island, Joop! and Nike. I Love You , now on its fourth issue, is run according to what Bördner calls “blog logic.” The husband and wife duo explain in full here.

    Paz is anything but judgeable. I like the way she embodies belonging, seeking, sex and girlism wrapped up in a little crazyness. Makes my day.

    She is much too impressed with herself. She knows that all she has is a great body, and she makes everything about that. Somehow I think if she had more going on in terms of depth, she wouldn't have to do that. As it stands now, she is known as the girl who takes her clothes off at the drop of a hat. Not something I would want my daughter to be known for.
