Ian Somerhalder stars in some of the best photo shoots around. Remember the sizzling Rolling Stone one that he and Vampire Diaries co-stars Nina Dobrev and Paul Wesley did in mid-August? It was downright edgy and fierce! But sometimes a guy’s gotta say “no thanks” to leather jackets and black jeans, and introduce a fresh pop of color (in the form of Emporio Armani and Paul Smith sweaters and pants) into the mix.
That’s exactly what Ian did in a flamboyant, ’70s-inspired spread for Flaunt magazine. Check out several groovy pics from the shoot:
The passionate environmentalist even shared some love advice: “I think we’re in love all the time with various things,” and he detours, “I mean, I know what it’s like to be in love, trust me, and it’s a very interesting game because it always inextricably brings up our deepest darkest insecurities. It’s just a matter of being able to see them, appreciate them, squash them, and let them go before they get the best of you.”
