CHARLIZE THERON & MICHAEL FASSBENDER BY MARIO SORRENTI, W MAGAZINE, AUGUST 2012
Posted on July 12, 2012
Well if this doesn’t ring the SEX alarm, I don’t know what does…
Prometheus co-stars Charlize Theron and Michael Fassbender seductively embrace each other in a cover W magazine’s August 2012 issue.
The eerily blue filtered image, lensed by Mario Sorrenti has wonderfully nostalgic 80s/early 90s cinematic sci-fi vibe about it, and shows the gorgeous starlet dressed in a Dior Archive lambskin dress, LaCrasia gloves and a delicate Elsa Peretti for Tiffany & Co. sterling silver necklace, whilst Michael dons a DSquared2 lambskin vest, Viktor & Rolf leather pants and a Bess belt.
Now I’m going to be a tiny bit critical here (no surprise there obviously). While I do think the cover is hot, I am slightly on the fence regarding the angle of Charlize’s face. Although she is so recognisable now you could most likely tell it is her a mile away I would have preferred that her eyes were completely closed and her mouth was slightly open, otherwise they should have used a shot that showed more of her beautiful face. In Michael’s case, the intensity in his blue eyes, the loose grip and the clenched jaw I’m sure will have women everywhere swooning.
I have to say I am slightly curious as to why these two were used as cover stars for the august issue…isn’t the Prometheus promo over now?…hmmm that aside I am definitely pumped to see the editorial!
