Talk about naked greed.
A former lingerie model is wanted for running an international drug ring that used other models as mules to bring cocaine from Buenos Aires to Britain, according to the London Daily Mail.
Angie Sanselmente Valencia, 30, is wanted on an international arrest warrant for masterminding the all-female operation, the Mail said.
The curvy Valencia, named "Queen of Coffee" in her native Colombia in 2000, hired only models who appeared "nice, but not flashy," according to the Mail.
The beauty pageant winner reportedly quit her modeling career last year to set up her cocaine business, which moved drugs from Argentina to the Mexican resort town Cancun and then on to England.
According to the Mail, cocaine-laden models were boarding a flight from Buenos Aires every day as part of the operation.
The December arrest of a 21-year-old courier with 55 kilos of cocaine in her luggage exposed the drug ring, with the suspect quickly implicating three others.
Valencia, who was staying in a posh Buenos Aires hotel, disappeared after the bust and remains at large.
