Breakout stars of NBC's Emmy nominated The Good Wife, Archie Panjabi and Matt Czuchry, pose in a deeply luxurious and sumptuously decadent shoot, entitled Paris Match, by top fashion photographer Ellen Von Unwerth. Shot on location in Paris, the shoot makes reference to desire and the uber luxe, playing on the on-screen chemistry between the young actors, who play in-house investigator Kalinda Sharma and state attorney Carey Agos.

The style of classic image maker Helmut Newton, whose images radiate edgy sexual tension and employ intricately choreographed poses is a clear influence in this shoot. High-contrast, monochrome shots are interspersed with images demonstrating Unwerth's love of super-high saturation.

Panjabi is styled in rich jewel colors -- a far cry from her alter ego: dark, secretive Kalinda Sharma, who is rarely seen in shades above slate or claret. Czuchry is at home in sharp tailoring, complimented with edgier choices in tight-fitting, long-sleeved t-shirts and casually draped scarves. Stylist Angelique O'Neil also throws in a bad boy element to the mix, introducing leather and a pair of biker boots to toughen up Czuchry's look.
