In the most recent issue of Vanity Fair, there is an article about the late actor Robin Williams and his extensive collection of costumes. One of the outfits he talked about possessing was a Halloween costume that had been made for him by the great American designer Anna Wintour. He kept the outfit and wore it several times over the years. One can only imagine that Robin’s final performance may have been inspired in part by his Halloween costume.
Now, if you’re a huge fan of the actress Julia Roberts, you may be interested to know that she, too, has a massive collection of costumes. And if you’re a fan of the British actor Benedict Cumberbatch, you may want to check out some of his costumes, too. They’re quite magnificent.
One of the most famous English actors of all time, and certainly one of the most handsome, is none other than Robert Pattinson. Several months ago, we reported that he was open to the idea of costume ideas. So, if you’ve been waiting for the next Robin Williams or Benedict Cumberbatch costume episode, your wish may have been answered.
The latest issue of Vanity Fair features a great interview with the 26 year old star. And in it, he reveals some interesting information about his costume collection:
According to the interview, his collection of costumes is quite large, containing approximately 150 pieces. And he’s been collecting ever since he was a teenager. So it was pretty much inevitable that one day he would end up with a massive collection of clothing.
Although Pattinson is very proud of his collection, he doesn’t believe he will ever need to be ashamed of his clothing choices. “I have no regrets. I mean, I wouldn’t change any of it. I made a conscious decision at a young age to collect clothes, and now I own a huge amount of clothing that I find amazing. So, I don’t feel bad or funny about it. I just feel lucky,” he said.
He also revealed that although he has never been really fond of costume parties, he has been to a few parties in the past where people have gotten up in character. He said it’s usually a lot of fun, but also that the parts can be a little much at times. He went on to say that he would love to attend a real Halloween party one day, where everyone gets up in character and acts out a scene from a Horror movie.
So, if you’ve ever wanted to attend a costume party but were too scared of being in character, Pattinson’s team of professionals may be the answer you’re looking for. Just make sure you get your tickets in advance so you don’t overpay if they go unclaimed!
