Biografia:(estratta da Wikipedia)
Amber Smith (born March 2, 1972) is an American actress and fashion model.
Early life and modeling career
Smith began modeling at age 16. As a teen, she traveled to Paris, France, where she worked as a model throughout Europe for four years. Her breakthrough came when her naturally blonde hair was dyed red, giving her a strong resemblance to 1940s and '50s movie star Rita Hayworth.
Smith appeared in back-to-back issues of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, and became Esquire magazine's first Vargas Girl of the 1990s. She also became the first model of the Wonderbra campaign. She later posed for photographer Helmut Newton for a Wolford advertising campaign, and was the model for the 2002 lingerie campaign for Venus Victoria, the European sister company to Victoria's Secret.
Smith has appeared on the covers of the fashion magazines and women's magazines Vogue, Elle, Cosmopolitan and Marie Claire, among others, and was the cover girl for the March 1995 issue of Playboy. She has appeared in advertising for L'Oréal makeup, Buffalo Jeans, Camel cigarettes, Kahlua liqueur, Volkswagen automobiles, and Panama Jack, among others, and has walked the runway for such fashion designers as Chanel and Jean Paul Gaultier.
Smith was cast in her first film role in Paul Mazursky's Faithful, on a referral from Robert De Niro that stemmed from her Casino auditions. She also appeared in The Funeral, directed by Abel Ferrara, and Barbra Streisand's The Mirror Has Two Faces. She played Susan Lefferts, a Rita Hayworth lookalike, in Curtis Hanson's L.A. Confidential. Smith's resemblance to Hayworth came into play again with a role in HBO's cable telefilm The Rat Pack.
Smith's name surfaced in connection with the January 2008 bankruptcy of the entertainment payroll firm Axium. A lawsuit alleged the company's partners misused funds by renting a Los Angeles, California apartment for Smith, paying for her car and issuing "numerous large payments to Smith, which they explained by calling her a 'consultant" to the company.
