There’s at all times one thing magnetic a few Robert Pattinson look on a pink carpet, and never solely as a result of he seems on them so occasionally, though that helps. No, it’s his tendency to go to an occasion and immediately seem like essentially the most rakishly impish (or impishly rakish) particular person within the common neighborhood. All that was solely amped up by the truth that his most up-to-date public look noticed him making a pink carpet debut along with his girlfriend of 4 years, the mannequin and actress Suki Waterhouse, at Dior’s huge pre-fall 2023 menswear present held on the Nice Pyramid of Giza exterior Cairo over the weekend, the place the pink carpet was really made from sand.
For the occasion, Pattinson (a longtime Dior ambassador) and Waterhouse wore coordinated seems from the model; he, in a barely slouchy, bone-white go well with worn over a skinny brown turtleneck, his pant legs bunched over a pair of black lug-sole mules—a strong footwear alternative for trekking throughout the sand—and his hair mussed one way or the other horizontally. They match effectively within the setting of Dior’s desert present, which was an ode to the Dune planet of Arakkis, if it have been primarily populated by stunning males with nice cheekbones. Which, in line with Denis Villeneuve’s model of that universe, it kind of is.
Pattinson’s good-looking hobgoblin schtick is, arguably, what most makes him a really enjoyable model spokesman—he grew to become the face of Dior Homme perfume approach again in 2013, not lengthy after his dovetailing turns in David Cronenberg’s finance-freak thriller Cosmopolis and the ultimate installment of the Twilight saga. The actor, a proudly unserious public determine (he and Waterhouse have each copped to making issues up throughout interviews for enjoyable), even admitted to basing his preposterous Shakespearian French accent he deployed within the 2019 Netflix film The King on the voices of the French staffers at Home Dior: “I used to be speaking to somebody at Dior…and I began mimicking them and doing it on this funnier approach,” he instructed GQ earlier this 12 months. “I began doing it as a joke at first, however then I filmed myself and watched it again, and thought this really kinda works.”
