Robert Pattinson is currently one of the most prominent actors of his generation. After breaking into the mainstream as a rebellious heartthrob in the ‘00s, he’s gone on to become one of Hollywood’s most sought-after young stars. In 2019 alone, he’s starred in a number of highly anticipated blockbusters and amassed a significant social media following. He’s currently promoting his new film, Good Morning, alongside co-stars Charlie Hunnam and Florence Pugh.
The Early Career
Born and raised in London, England, Robert Pattinson first found fame as a teen actor starring in the British sitcom Crackanory. The actor made his film debut at the age of fourteen, and a few years later he was nominated for a BAFTA for his role in the film adaptation of Sweeney Todd. After starring in a number of critically acclaimed films, including The King’s Speech and The Death of Dickie Green, he was cast as James Bond several times over the next decade in the Bond film series, starting with Spectre in 2015. The actor’s film career took off from there, with him picking up a coveted Golden Globe for his leading role in the action fantasy Belle. Later that year, he was again nominated for a BAFTA for supporting role in the Netflix series The Irishman.
The Rise Of Social Media
With the rise of TikTok in the early 2010s, audiences were given the opportunity to follow celebrities closer than ever before. The craze for social media allowed the public to get to know the stars more intimately through their daily lives on platforms like Instagram and TikTok. It also presented a new way to engage with audiences through short-form content, such as TikTok stories and Instagram Live videos.
Robert Pattinson has always been heavily involved in social media. Even before he became a major star, he was already a renowned user of social media platforms like Twitter. The actor has also used his Instagram account to share insights into his personal life, including tidbits on his dogs, Bella and Gigi, and his travels with partner Rose Wittstock. He also occasionally shares his fashion style on the platform, featuring a number of high-profile designers’ clothing lines.
The influencer in him kicked in when Instagram introduced new live videos in 2018, and the platform became a major source of engagement for the actor. As a leading man, he has the opportunity to influence many more people with his fashion choices and daily life, and he’s always taken full advantage of it. In fact, he’s become so popular on TikTok that he even became its first ever ‘personality star’, featuring a variety of funny, fashion-related videos starring the Twilight star.
Even the most avid followers of Robert Pattinson’s work have probably never really paid too much attention to his looks. The star is known for his boyish charm and his impeccable wardrobe, and that’s what draws audiences to him. This is particularly surprising, as this is one of the few interviews that we’ve been able to pull a celebrity’s hair and makeup artist for, and they both chose to keep their identities hidden. The results are breathtaking; we’re finally able to shed some light onto the fashion side of things and give you an opportunity to see how gorgeous Robert Pattinson really is.
The Beauty Of Robert Pattinson
As mentioned, the Twilight star is known for his boyish charm and impeccable style. It’s led to many a fashion mishap over the years, with the actor often finding himself at the receiving end of a giggle or two.
When it comes to the subject of his looks, the actor is famously modest. “I don’t really believe in fashion,” he said at the 2018 Golden Globes. “I’ll be having my hair and makeup done and I’ll look over at the woman in the mirror and think ‘that’s not bad,’ but I’ll be gone in a flash.”
While the industry has mostly ignored him, the Twilight star has always found inspiration from the greats. “I love Audrey Hepburn, I love Grace Kelly, and I love Marjorie Merriweather Post. And whenever I see a picture of one of them, it just makes me feel really happy,” he said. “So, I guess, in a way, I’m inspired by old Hollywood glamour and style.”
Now that we’ve looked into Robert Pattinson’s personal life a bit, let’s take a look at his style choices. The actor is known to be very selective about the brands he chooses to work with, and much of that is down to his impeccable taste in clothes. When it comes to trends, the actor is always one step ahead.
One of the most striking elements of the actor’s style is how ahead of trends he is. Even in the ‘90s, when many stars were rocking grunge style, Robert Pattinson was spotted wearing silk scarves and designer sunglasses, and styled his hair with grace and class. And while we’re on the subject of his hair, we can’t leave without mentioning his unrivalled command of hairstyles. He’s frequently been seen wearing many different hairstyle variations, and has credited Sex and the City‘s Sarah Jessica Parker with changing his life with her beautiful hairstyle choice.
The Twilight star is often credited with helping to revive the career of Tom Ford, and it’s easy to see why. Not only does he have an amazing knack for styling hair, but he also chooses the most stunning quality garments for his wardrobe and frequently collaborates with the designer on special events. While many actors are known to struggle with their wardrobes, and even those who have millions of dollars often go to famous designers to fix their wardrobe issues, it seems that Robert Pattinson turns to friends and family for his style inspiration. The list of people he’s invited to his home to inspire him is pretty impressive, from Kate Winslet and Naomi Watts to brother Luke and sister Kirsten. The family home was even the setting for one of Ford’s most famous campaigns; the designer invited Pattinson as a guest for his thirtieth birthday party, and he styled the occasion as a retro ‘70s look, complete with flared trousers, modish shirts, and a tie-waist dress.
Fashion And Marketing
It probably goes without saying that being a successful fashion and marketing star means you’re going to be wearing beautiful clothes frequently, and being selective about the brands you work with allows you to wear those clothes without fear of them being taken off you. While this may seem like an obvious point, it’s an aspect of celebrity fashion that many in the industry still don’t get, and it’s led to many a public appearance where the star is underdressed or overdressed. This makes it easy for brands to miss out on this potentially huge audience, as they don’t always realize the extent of the star’s power.
Brands can also take advantage of the fact that many people still hold a soft spot for stars. If a brand wants to engage with the audience that Robert Pattinson brings with him, they can create limited edition products and offer in-kind promotional gifts and access to special events.
It’s an exciting time to be a fan of Robert Pattinson. The actor has spent the past two years collaborating heavily with Gucci, and it seems that their partnership will continue. The luxury handbag brand announced that they will be expanding their leather goods collection, inspired by the look of the actor’s latest Netflix series.
The actor also has a line of candles named after him, and a fragrance in the works. All of this makes it easy for us to pinpoint where his influence will be seen in the future. While the industry has mostly ignored him, the public is finally starting to take notice of the handsome star and his ability to influence fashion and style. Who knows, maybe in a few years’ time, people will be discussing the Kardashians just as much as they do about him now.
