The new Joan Smalls Vogue Paris editorial 'Les Feux de la Nuit' could not be more sensual or steamy.

Shot by photographer Mario Sorrenti, the editorial features Smalls in a variety of suggestive poses in a small cramped car. Her ensembles include a lot of fishnet stockings, leather and low-cut bodysuits. Combined with Smalls's sensual body language and striking gaze, 'Les Feux de la Nuit' is an extremely lustful photo shoot.

Sorrenti's use of chiaroscuro serves to enhance the sensuality of the editorial. Shadows highlight Small's face while darkening her surroundings to cement her as the focal point of each shot. Sorrenti also invades the space with extreme close-ups causing the viewer to experience a sense of intimacy.

This editorial is a strong display of human emotion. With Joan Small's sensual poses, Sorrenti's contrast of light and dark and its scandalously revealing outfits 'Les Feux de la Nuit' is truly a depiction of the "fires of the night."
