Paz de la Huerta Models Joe's Jeans in a Circus Hoop at 14 Feet in the Air

Paz de la Huerta is the face of Joe's Jeans fall campaign which celebrates the brand's 10th anniversary. According to a release, creative director Joe Dahan chose de la Huerta "for her sultry nature and untamed beauty." If "untamed" can also encompass de la Huerta's recent drunk antics--including being charged with assault after punching model Samantha Swetra in the face and then throwing a glass at her at the Standard back in March--then that's an apt descriptor. The campaign, photographed by Tao Ruspoli, puts the "Boardwalk Empire" actress in an old time-y circus where she rides a vintage merry-go-round, dangles from an aerial hoop suspended 14 feet in the air, is strapped to a spinning wheel in front of a knife thrower, and then just stares at herself in a mirror. "Masterfully suspended like a wild cat, Paz gazes at you, rendering you powerless," the release reads. Are you powerless yet? Click through to see the rest of the campaign.
