In the summer of 2012, high-end fashion line Prada unveiled photos and video of actors Willem “Green Goblin” Dafoe, Gary “Commissioner Sirius Black” Oldman, Garrett “Sam Flynn” Hedlund, and Jamie “TinTin Billy Elliot” Bell wearing their heavily steampunk-influenced fall/winter menswear line. This is a real sentence we just typed describing a real thing.
Prada describes the photo campaign by David Sims as “a subtle parody of power and role-play” and goes on to describe the steampunk-clothed actors as players in a game where every precise movement and mannerism is studied.
Click below for more photos of the actors modeling the line, along with a behind the scenes video of the photo shoot. Willem Dafoe is serving up some high-powered glower, so anyone with a heart condition should probably step back.
You can see more photos from the shoot at Prada’s site. Check out the behind-the-scenes video below for more of the actors hanging about in their steampunk duds. Somehow, watching Willem Dafoe psych himself up for his evil glare is even scarier than his actual glare...
Seriously, Willem Dafoe is probably the last thing we’re going to see before we die.
