Greetings. I’ve gathered you here to present the look of Robert Pattinson that made one person on Instagram ask: “Why is he dressed as a Bulgarian grandmother?”
Here’s R. Patz at the Dior Fall-Winter 2023-2024 show at Paris Fashion Week. The dress is from the collection, and Robert is a “global ambassador” for the brand. Does this context help? I have no idea.
Now, this view is rich text. Let me start: We start with the puffer jacket/zip collar combo. Some might say that Rob Pattinson in a brown zip-up conjures up images of that meme of him standing in a kitchen in a pair of overalls. Not me! This look is so sophisticated!
Next, we have the tweed skirt – complete with a legging shade for maximum Victorian glamour. I am definitely a fan of skirts in menswear. This is why I’m a bit of a Thom Browne whore, even if it might take me back to when I had to wear a hideous dress to school until I was 16.
Finish it off with black rubber boots and knee-high socks. Finally, a look you can wear to the front row of fashion week and wading in shallow puddles.
What I’m getting at here is that I don’t think the individual parts of this look are bad – quite the opposite. But all combined? It’s… powerful, I’ll give you that.
Of course, he’s Robert Pattinson, and he might look good in a garbage bag taped together. I would be remiss not to include some of the more artistic photos from the show. The man did read poetry as part of it, after all!
The blur here makes his skin look blinding, a bit like…no, I won’t say.
He has also posed with other famous people. According to WWD, either Eddie Redmayne or Robert joked that the ending came with “a little extra ventilation.” I can’t tell if it was Eddie or Robert who made the joke because either the expression is off or I’m an idiot (the latter is more likely).
But what do I know about fashion? I’m writing this in sweats and an Edward Cullen t-shirt (just kidding).
