Sam Claflin shot to the top of everyone's ones to watch list as the flirty Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games franchise, and now is definitely the 28 year old actor's moment as he also stars in The Riot Club and Love, Rosie, making him perfect for Mario Testino's latest project. The legendary photographer takes a leaf out of Slim Aaron's book of intimate and iconic party pics of the rich and famous through the 50s, 60s and 70s, by handpicking emerging talents from across the globe for the latest CÎROC® Vodka campaign. "Slim Aarons has been one of those photographers who has inspired me from the earliest days of my career. His approach to photography and the style that he captured always made me dream," Mario says.

Number 1 on his list is Sam Claflin. As the Brit babe takes over the London Edition Hotel, we get a sweet, sleek, inside peek behind the scenes with the Hunger Games heartthrob.
