Well if this isn't a perfect opportunity to post a bunch of photos of Ian Somerhalder and call it work, it must not be Wednesday. The Vampire Diaries actor's newest role is the face of a sexy men's fragrance. Let's look at some photos related to the Ian Somerhalder Azzaro Pour Homme campaign with model Ana Beatriz Barros, as well as some from his early years as a model (you know he started at 10 years old?). Plus, Staff dug up a sneaky fan video captured from the sidelines of the campaign's video shoot.

The Ian Somerhalder Azzaro Pour Homme campaign was shot last July in Lake Como, Italy. It was hard to keep quiet. (Liza found this shot on Instagram taken by someone who lives next door to the shoot location. The woman mis-identified Ian as "James Patterson," then later "ROBERT Patterson," which we think is awesome.)

Try to ignore Ian's cuticle abuse on set, even though I've just pointed it out twice (my bad). Instead look to the right of his co-star Ana Beatriz Barros: that's L'Oréal Paris Elnett hairspray ($14.99 at well.ca) and what looks like a Denman bristle brush at work in the hands of hairstylist Maxime Mace. (The makeup artist for the campaign shoot was Tatsu Yamanaka.)

“I like the idea that the Azzaro Pour Homme fragrance has literally been around the world seducing women,” says Ian via press release. “I think that when a man wears fragrance, he instinctively knows that this is above all for the benefit of others. The intention of seduction is always there.”

Some press-release "quotes" feel... made up. These kinda don't. Right?

The official ad image. We weren't supposed to show it to you until April 1st, but some schmucks have already broken the embargo and thrown it onto the web, which forces us to follow suit.

It's no grey t-shirt. But there's a cosy grey cardigan at the other side of this link. Ian's big into animal rights, clean energy, and environmental responsibility. He founded the Ian Somerhalder Foundation in 2010 to help with the issues. The Azzaro Pour Homme bottle is refillable.

He's about 16 here. And apparently smoking in ads was still allowed and considered the height of fashion. As was this jacket.

Bet the stylist or whoever tucked the dry leaves around Ian's face for this Versace campaign regrets it now. Or not.

Ian Somerhalder, tween heartthrob -- wonder if he hates this photo now?

Well, I had the Dorothy Hamill hair cut when I was a kid. Looked better on me than on Ian. Truth. Photographer, Len Irish.

Preppy and retro Ian Somerhalder -- kinda dig it.

Looking preppy for Guess. "In the fashion business, if you’re a creative director or you’re a designer, it’s a very creative business and you can drive it," Ian told CBS Watch magazine in their April 2014 issue. "As talent in the fashion world, it’s significantly more vapid."

Hellz yeah we need a close-up of that Blue Steel.

I'm not sure that's enough photos. I've put Staff on the job of scoping for additional interesting images. If she finds anything compelling, she'll upload them here. This is the one job she'll enjoy.

Oh look -- Staff's found this amateur video a fan captured from outside the villa in which Ian and Ana shot the Azzaro commercial. The director, Jonas Akerlund, appears in it too.

We have the first official Ian Somerhalder Azzaro Pour Homme commercial spot, but we can't show it to you here until April 1st. Keep an eye on the Beautygeeks YouTube Channel.

UPDATE: Aaaand here's the first official Ian Somerhalder Azzaro Pour Homme commercial clip...

So, do you have thoughts on the Ian Somerhalder Azzaro pour Homme campaign? On the photos? On the fan video? On the official clip?

Versace campaign, Guess and bowl-haircut images via buzzfeed; you have to see the rest of their photos (in one shot, Stella Tenant looks like Ian's concerned babysitter taking away his smoke.)
