Robert Pattinson is certainly trying to become the fashion industry’s next ‘it’ thing, isn’t he? Just last week, the 26-year-old actor landed a lucrative endorsement deal for Dior’s men fragrance. Now, he’s popping up in a high fashion editorial photographed by Caitlin Cronenberg for L’oumo Vogue’s November issue. Coincidentally enough, Caitlin is the daughter of David Cronenberg who directed Robert in Cosmopolis, released earlier this year.
I’ve made it known here that I’m not Pattinson’s hugest fan, but I’m loving the futuristic couture feel of the shoot. Dressed in leather studded trenchcoats, bold accessories and some Adam Lambert-like “guy”-liner, Robert looks like the love child of Keanu Reeve’s Neo and Mel Gibson’s Mad Max. His signature messy locks really work with the fashion narrative. It’s great to see the Brit show an edgier side. Check out the photos below.
