Ever wondered what the celebrities were doing before Fame Game? Well, wonder no more! Thanks to the wonders of technology, we can now see what the celebs were up to before they were famous. And better yet, we can replicate their fashion choices and sport some of their looks instead of having to rely on the vintage photos that we get from time to time.
One of the biggest names to grace the meme scene is none other than Robert Pattinson. Back in 2013, the former Twilight star was just trying to figure out this whole acting thing and had yet to land a major role. And while he did eventually find fame, it wasn’t until afterward that he started gaining a large following on social media. And since then, he’s only gotten more impressive and popular. Not only is he massively talented, but he has a way with fashion as well. That’s probably because of his privileged background. He’s the son of a wealthy entrepreneur and sometime concert promoter, who set up his son’s trust fund so that he could live freely and pursue his acting dreams. He didn’t just fund his son’s acting career, but also helped him buy a $4.5 million apartment in New York City. All of this helped make Pattinson one of the most eligible bachelors in Hollywood. Unfortunately, he hasn’t been very visible lately, so we might not get to see the full extent of his fashion talent. But let’s take a look anyway.
A Prince Amongst The Fans
Prior to his acting career taking off, Pattinson had actually been in talks to appear in one of the biggest blockbusters of all time. He was even going to play a central role in the movie adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey. But for some reason, the film ended up falling through, and instead, we got the amazing and unique film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. While it was a letdown not to get to play a part in one of the biggest blockbusters of all time, it did give Pattinson a chance to interact with some of his biggest fans. Who would have thought that going to see a movie with your girlfriend would also make you meet her parents?
While Potter was a great success and made a lot of money, it didn’t help Pattinson’s bank account. He ended up having to take a step back from his acting career and focus on his music. The Twilight saga may have been financially lucrative, but it also took a huge emotional toll on him. He’s spoken about how hard it was to promote and film the last two Twilight movies, due to the massive success of the series. And while he’s grateful for the work he was able to do on those films, he admits that it was definitely a tough time. Having said that, he’s now found a home in music, and with any luck, he’ll be back to acting sooner than later.
Rocking The Tracksuit
Pattinson doesn’t just come from an acting dynasty. His dad owns a successful recording studio and was also one of the main producers of the Spice Girls’ music. And it’s clear that Robert has inherited his father’s passion for music, as he’s actively engaged in the music scene, both as a solo artist and as a member of a band. He’s released a number of solo tracks, including “Applause” and “Sleeping In My Car”. And as mentioned, he’s also part of a band, The Robert Pattinson Band, which he joined in 2014. But perhaps his biggest claim to fame is the fact that he became the face of Balenciaga following his starring role in the 2015 fashion film, Two Summers. The 24-year-old wore the luxury fashion house’s tracksuit several times, and it became his signature look. Indeed, it was only a matter of time before people started wanting to adopt this casual but trendy look. And so, the #balenciaga4eva trend was born.
Even before Two Summers, the fashion world had noticed Pattinson. It was 2013, and he’d just finished filming the third Twilight movie, New Moon. While he’d always been interested in fashion, it wasn’t until that point that he really started to take the style world by storm. And it wasn’t just because of his acting talent either. He also has a very distinctive face, which is a combination of his Scottish heritage and Native American ancestry. It’s an excellent face for fashion, and because of this, he’s been able to walk the runways for several high-profile fashion houses, including Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton, and Dior. In addition to these houses, he’s also done campaigns for a range of luxury brands, including Acne, Burberry, and Marc Jacobs. It seems that wherever he goes, he garners attention.
A Fashion Icon In The Making
This is an incredible opportunity for any aspiring fashion star. Not only is there a ton of exposure due to his celebrity status, but he’s also become a sort of fashion icon in the making. People are inspired by his casual yet effortlessly cool fashion choices, and it’s not hard to see why. He often posts incredible photos of himself on social media, showing off his unique sense of style. And even if you don’t follow fashion closely, it’s clear that Robert Pattinson is someone you should know about.
