Poor Optimus Prime — he really just has two looks. Well, two if you count “truck” and “robot made out of truck” separately. Optimus Prime can do a lot of cool things, but he’ll never be in a fancy magazine fashion shoot.
Or so we thought. The latest issue of Elle Italia has the leader of the Autobots walking the streets of New York City with supermodel Josephine Skriver like it’s no big thing — which it isn’t, not for Oprimus freakin’ Prime. But how psyched was Josephine Skriver when she found out she’d be doing the shoot with him? Unfortunately, Optimus Prime does not get to model any clothes himself, because human-made clothing wouldn’t fit his robotic figure and besides — Optimus Prime in a blazer and skinny jeans would be silly.
We tip our cap to Alex Chung (for the tip), Matt Jones (the photographer) and Alberto Zanoletti (the stylist).
