ONE to WATCH: SAM PALLADIO
He may be stealing hearts as Gunnar Scott on ABC’s hit series Nashville, but Sam Palladio is stealing ours in Mr. Porter’s new “One To Watch” issue 122. Hailing from across the pond (he’s actually a Brit!), Palladio plays a convincing Southern boy full of sweet charm and big country music aspirations on the popular show. For this dreamy shoot, he’s photographed by Linda Brownlee and styled to perfection by Tracey Nicholson. Look how relaxed and strikingly handsome he is here…care to swoon with us?
“I consider myself an actor first and foremost – that’s what I trained to do – but music has always been a real passion, and I’ve never quite been able to give one more weight than the other. I guess I’m an actor who sings and plays.” – SP
In 9 lovely shots, we see what a day in Palladio’s life looks like. Whether he’s sitting on an outside patio or lounging on a comfy bed, he wears these clothes beautifully like they were made for him. A gorgeous look is a Billy Reid Dunnavant leather jacket, John Smedley wool sweater and Slowear cotton chinos. Another keeper is the Rag & Bone henley t-shirt, Jean Machine jeans and those killer Grenson leather brogue boots. Nothing better than a man in good shoes. Loro Piana, A.P.C., Lanvin, Schiesser, Alexander Wang and Paul Smith Shoes & Accessories are all featured in the remaining looks worth mentioning.
Palladio has a slew of upcoming exciting projects coming up, including the thriller movie Runner, Runner alongside Justin Timberlake. Talk about double the hotness! And here’s a fun fact: before landing his breakthrough role, Palladio never visited the US before. We’re so glad he finally did. All clothing found now at Mr. Porter. fdmLOVES Sam Palladio selects by Brigitte Segura, commentary by Allison Ripa.
