A brooding Alexander Skarsgard stars alongside Lara Stone in the ad campaign for Calvin Klein’s Encounter fragrance. Steven Klein photographed the ad with an industrial grey/blue tinge that aims to project the masculinity of the fragrance.
“I’m sort of loving/hating this,” mistress_f posted. “I think it would've looked better if he didn’t have a major case of ‘Blue Steel’ face in it.” Seeing as Skarsgard played one of Ben Stiller’s ill-fated model roommates in Zoolander, he should be able to channel “Blue Steel” better than most. It's probably a tough habit to break, muscle memory and all.

Is anyone else looking forward to the television spots for this fragrance? I’m anticipating something steamy and hoping Skarsgard will lose the shirt. Fingers crossed!
