Cara Delevingne Is a Super Sexy Robot Shot on a Kodak Super 8
Using an early prototype of the new Kodak Super 8 camera, which will be commercially available later this year, Renell revealed Caraâ€™s candid side as she was photographed by Mariano Vivanco in a variety of vintage Mugler outfits.
Striking set design, mind-bending effects and awe-inspiring performances from some of the best actors in the world â€“ thereâ€™s a reason that French director Luc Bessonâ€™s latest cinematic offering, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, is one of the most highly anticipated films of the summer.
Celebrating the launch of Bessonâ€™s film, actor and model Cara Delevingne â€“ who stars in the film alongside Dane DeHann â€“ was shot by Mariano Vivanco for the August cover of British GQ. Kodak and photographer Renell Medrano were granted exclusive access to the Barbarella-themed shoot in Paris to create a behind-the-scenes short film, captured entirely on the brand new Super 8 camera .
Based on the cult French comic book Barbarella, Roger Vadimâ€™s 1968 sci-fi film featuring Jane Fonda as a blonde-haired, silver-booted incarnation of the iconic astronaut from the 41st century â€“ seized imaginations around the world.
Barbarellaâ€™s genre-defining incandescence still reverberates beyond the realm of sci-fi, with Jean-Paul Gaultier nodding to Barbarella as a major influence for the visually tantalizing costumes that appeared in Luc Bessonâ€™s classic, The Fifth Element.
