Mario Sorrenti For Vogue Paris and Vogue Hommes
By Paul Kolyer
Vogue Hommes Fashion Director/Vogue Paris Fashion Editor Anastasia Barbieri styles hot French actor Louis Garrel for the Fall 2014 Vogue Hommes cover shoot. Mario Sorrenti photographs Garrel for this issue with the theme "Surrender to the fever of the night."
As stated in the Vogue Hommes Guest List page, "Every time he makes an appearance in the magazine, the experience is a memorable one. When we talked to him about Louis Garrel, Sorrenti, whose Italian origins have surely honed his taste for all things European, he agreed immediately. He was won over by the young actor"s 'New Wave' profile, uncompromising choice of films, and the plaudits for his performance in the latest film on Saint Laurent. The photo shoot in a ramshackle house in the Paris suburbs highlights Louis Garrel's magnetic, twilight beauty."
Mario Sorrenti works so well with the Vogue Paris crew, and when he teams with Emmanuelle Alt the outcome is spectacular. The Vogue Hommes Guest List page says, "Emmanuelle Alt is a regular contributor to Vogue Hommes. As Fashion Director of Vogue Paris, this willowy Parisian, with her lively wit, deftly guided the costume choices of Mario Sorrenti, whose long-time helper she is. And what does Emmanuelle Alt see a sex symbol wearing? 'Forget trendy designer labels. Jeans, a sweater or a T-shirt worn under a jacket that seems welded to you. When it's just right, when you don't see the effort, it's irresistible.'" I leave you with a few more of the self-portraits of Mario, styled by Emmanuelle Alt for the Vogue Hommes Spring/Summer 2009 issue.
