James Franco, Serious Photog, Shoots Nearly Naked Ladies In A Cemetery

Truth be told, every time we hit up a Cinespia screening, we imagine the Hollywood Forever site as the ideal, iconic backdrop for a photo shoot. But, in true Franco fashion, the actor-slash-artist-slash-Playboy columnist beat us to the punch line, visiting the legendary location for his latest Seven For All Mankind campaign. The sexy poses in lacy lingerie (against a mausoleum, no less) aren't what we originally had in mind, but that's our artsy rebel for you!
Inspired by Hollywood actor Rudolph Valentino, the ads feature Lily Donaldson, Lou Doillon, Cody Horn, and Henry Hopper visiting some of Tinseltown's famous spots. Tomorrow, the entire video will debut on YouTube, but our friends over at Style.com have some behind-the-scenes photos that piqued our interest. Other than the cemetery, the crew is seen traipsing down Sunset and stopping by Mark Mahoney's Shamrock Social Club tattoo parlor — no word yet if any of the starlets left with new ink.
