Halloween Inspiration Board: Paz de la Huerta as “Boardwalk Empire”‘s Lucy Danziger

Played to perfection on “Boardwalk Empire” by my favorite hot mess-and-a half Paz de la Huerta, Lucy Danziger is a showgirl in every sense of the word. Intense, unpredictable, and attention-seeking, the former mistress of Atlantic City kingpin Nucky Thompson went from the ragtag life of a Ziegfeld Follies performer to a pampered concubine. Eventually exhausted by Lucy’s antics, Nucky meets Margaret Schroeder, a clever Irish widow, and casts his former squeeze to the wayside. Now pregnant with the child of Nelson Van Alden, a Prohibition agent with a long-distance wife and an unyielding religious conviction, Lucy is a miserable shred of what she once was. I prefer to think of her restored to former glory as Nucky’s arm candy, draped in jewels and sumptuous furs.

Here’s your guide to channeling Lucy Danziger’s opulent 1920s look this Halloween, and remember to tune in to HBO Sunday nights at 9 p.m. for the next installment of “Boardwalk Empire”!
