Prometheus for W Magazine

July 19, 2012

W Magazine’s August issue doubles as a romance novel cover featuring Prometheus co-stars Charlize Theron and Michael Fassbender

The shot: The cover and beginning of an editorial shoot for W Magazine based on the Prometheus film

The models: Prometheus actors Charlize Theron and Michael Fassbender

The garb: Who cares! The cover shot is so shamelessly Harlequin and Theron barely recognizable to allow any woman to imagine herself in that embrace- well, this is fantasy, we don’t really care about the shopping list. As it turns out, she’s wearing a lambskin Dior dress and the necklace is Tiffany & Co. On him it’s a lambskin vest by DSquared2 (he’s dressed? – so hard to tell).

The photographer: Mario Sorrenti

The final word: It’ s hot! And, not. To be honest the entire shoot is worth reflecting on because sometimes its hotness also feels so awkward. The cover shot is spectacular for sure and somehow escaped this fate. Couldn’t have been a coincidence that a Harlequin-inspired cover also features the headline, “The Lazy Girl’s Guide to a Better Body”? Which makes me wonder also at using the word “Girl” instead of woman.

Let’s take a look at the rest:

This is a little odd to me, possibly because I just don’t believe Theron’s portrayal here: she’s resisting but she’s not, and were/are they getting it on or is that just about to happen-?

I like this image and I like her dress- it’s a chain link by Yves Saint Laurent. This pose is Harlequin-y enough that I believe it for what it is, also similar pose to the cover- is this a go-to pose for them?

Now this, when I see this image I don’t even know what to think. At first her head seems cut off from her body then I see his shiny pants, and there he is, head in her crotch and her with her cheek turned away from his. So weird. I have no idea what is going on. Same dress though. I’m looking at them again and his eyes are closed- like a bat? Are you sure Prometheus isn’t Batman?

Is this a Latin dancer? Or is it the same guy as before, Fassbender? I’m feeling so lost and I’m staring at his ribs. I look over and Charlize Theron looks nothing like Charlize Theron, but I like her tights. They’re not listed on the fashion list.

This is just really too bad, I don’t understand why she’s squatting like that, and grabbing his hips and we can see his bum crack! Are you with me? I’m also thinking that she looks like a mermaid, and maybe she plays one in the film. I haven’t seen it so could be. Nothing else makes sense

For the record I haven’t seen the Prometheus movie yet, so-?

    I am with you until you complain about Fassbender’s crack (aka fASS crack). At that point i lose all objectivity about the photo and cry for MORE! MORE!
