Ian Somerhalder took smoldering to a whole new level at the Krewe of Endymion Parade in New Orleans on Saturday. The Vampire Diaries star — and Louisiana native — got playful throwing show-themed beads and cups (with his face on them) at the crowd but then turned things sexy as he licked the necklaces, blew kisses at the crowd, and even showed off his musical side with a trombone. Try not to faint as you scroll through the photos and videos below, which include him as a cop, crazy selfies, purple boas, a tip of his fedora, and that signature smirk. And the icing on the king cake? He also brought along his mom and sister!
