This year’s most popular search term on Google is “Robert Pattinson.” If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance you’ve also seen his movie, Superman Returns. In case you haven’t, here’s a breakdown of the many ways in which Robert Pattinson is currently inspiring the masses.
The Beards Won
Since the beginning of this year, fans of Robert Pattinson have been doing their utmost to grow facial hair in honor of their idol. While it would be great to grow a full and flourishing mustache or goatee, the chances of that happening are very slim. If you want to get in the spirit of things, you could grow an extremely fashionable unibrow like Robert Pattinson. This style was recently named the “Moustache of the Year,” so it’s clearly gaining popularity every day.
The Fashion Industry
If there’s one place we’re finding inspiration these days, it’s the fashion industry. From streetwear to suits and everything in between, it seems like every fashion-related search term on Google has skyrocketed this year. While we might not all have the means to become full-time fashion designers, many of us have the talent and the will to learn. With the fashion industry in a state of flux, there’s never been a better time to start a fashion brand. It might not be the most stable industry in the world, but if you’ve got a great haircut, you can definitely walk the red carpet.
Speaking of the red carpet, let’s not forget about Vogue. In case you’ve been living under a rock for the last few years, Vogue is arguably the most popular magazine in the world. Last year, it celebrated turning 100 years old. To celebrate this monumental occasion, Vogue released a special issue devoted entirely to fashion’s newest idol: Robert Pattinson. In one of their trademark in-depth interviews, Vogue’s senior fashion editor Christina Steed talks to Robert about his fascinating life. Among other things, she asks him about the origins of his fashion whims and about how he approaches men’s style. While the magazine primarily focuses on his fashion choices, it also explores the unique nature of their relationship. In a revealing anecdote, Steed notes that the fashion magazine Elle contacted her about writing an article about her favorite “It” boy, but she wasn’t entirely comfortable with the prospect of an entire article devoted to her and her son, Charlie. “I didn’t want to put Charlie in the limelight,” she said. “And at the end of the day, I don’t think it’s fair to write about a 17-year-old kid who doesn’t really have a voice.” Luckily for Charlie, Steed didn’t end up writing the piece. Instead, they decided to do a spread featuring Robert’s favorite designers and styles. If this sounds like something that would make you feel more comfortable, why not consider working with a professional writer to help you put your best foot forward? It can sometimes be tricky to get your story out there, but having a professional take care of the technicalities behind the scenes makes all the difference. Plus, having a finished product at the end will give you a chance to take a step back and appreciate all the hard work that went into it.
The Music Industry
Speaking of getting your story out there, many of us are also seeing the benefit of getting into the music industry. As a fan of the band Coldplay, I can personally attest to the power of a good song to evoke particular feelings and memorable experiences. So it’s not surprising that many of us are looking towards the music industry to help us define ourselves and find our place in the world. In recent years, there’s been a surge in popularity of bands like Paramore and Jack White’s band, the Raconteurs. If you have a love for alternative music, these are some of the best bands to watch out for. And as an added incentive, many of these bands often feature powerful musicians who are also great songwriters. So, if you want to be a songwriter one day, this could potentially be a path to follow.
The Role Of Social Media
While traditional media outlets often get all the glory when it comes to breaking news, it’s the digital sphere where many interesting stories are born. Over the past year, we’ve seen an explosion of interest in all things related to Robert Pattinson on social media platforms like Twitter and Instagram. If you follow closely enough, you’ll start to see a pattern. When a breaking news story about Robert pops up online, it usually appears on Twitter first and is then picked up by other platforms like Instagram. And what do you know, the story usually ends up being very popular. This is likely due to the fact that many of us are now choosing to follow specific accounts on social media, meaning we’re getting a more personalized experience. While this makes it appear as though the stories are more relevant to our individual lives, it can sometimes be the opposite. Sometimes we’ll see a story about someone we know and think, “Why is this person talking about this subject?” Ultimately, it’s all about personal preference. Just because a subject matter expert broke down the demographics and psychographics of this tendency, this doesn’t mean we have to subscribe to it.
A Turning Point
Let’s just take a step back for a moment and appreciate everything going on in Robert Pattinson’s favor. First of all, look at all the beards he’s been sporting lately. His unibrow alone has caused a viral trend that was #worthit. Then there’s the fashion industry’s newfound interest in his style. If you’re a fashion snob, you might have heard about the ‘Boyapolice‘ brand, which takes its name from the combination of the words ‘Boy‘ and ‘Apolis,’ the latter of which is Greek for ‘city police.’ In an interesting turn of events, two of the three founding members of the fashion brand are also members of the British Royal Family. This is certainly a brand to keep an eye on. Finally, let’s not forget about his band, Paramore. The group just released their new album, Haywire, and it’s already in the top ten of the Billboard Top 200. With a combined total of over 150 million album sales, the members of Paramore know how to make an impression. And what’s more is this is only the beginning. Their next album is due out later this year and will be their first with the new singer, Jesy. With Paramore continuing to grow in popularity, it’s evident that Robert Pattinson is in a class of his own when it comes to making an impression. It would be a great story, wouldn’t it?
