Robert Pattinson’s sexual adventures and romances have captivated audiences and media. The 27-year-old actor has starred in some of Hollywood’s most popular films, like the Harry Potter series and the upcoming X-Men: Dark Phoenix. In real life, Pattinson has been linked to some of the world’s most stunning women. The latest addition to his collection of ladies is former Miss Sweden Linnéa Cocquebaugh. The two have been dating since last year. When the English press questioned whether or not fans would accept their age difference, MacFarlane replied: “People will always question things about [Pattinson]… I think it makes him more exciting to have so many things that people question about you. It makes you more interesting.”
More Than Meets The Eye
Pattinson shot to superstardom after appearing in the Harry Potter films. He has since played a key role in the Twilight Saga and in the upcoming X-Men: Dark Phoenix. In the past year, he has also been romantically linked to some of the most beautiful women in the world. In April 2019, he became engaged to actress and singer Anabella Acolatse. The two had been dating since 2016. In the same month, it was reported that Pattinson, who is in a relationship with American musician Katy B., had fathered a child with her. The singer gave birth to a son, Everly James, in November 2019.
Grow Your Own
The Victoria’s Secret beauty pageant launched its annual lingerie collection, the Heavenly Beds, in celebration of women’s empowerment and individuality. The collection, inspired by the British design firm’s signature flower theme, is named after Isabella’s popular blog post from last year. The post, which went viral, encouraged women to “grow their own” in the shape of a flower, and to share the results on social media. Thousands of women across the world took up the challenge, posting pictures of their unique blooms on Twitter and Instagram. The hashtag #heavenlybeds became a worldwide trend, and many women expressed their excitement at finally having some freedom in a male-dominated world.
Isabella later tweeted that she had been “blown away” by the response to her blog post. The collection, which is available to buy online, is composed of lacy bodystockings, garters, and teddy bears, and features floral embroideries, delicate lace, crystal and beaded embellishments. Interestingly, the lingerie collection, which is named after one of Isabella’s most popular blog posts, doesn’t feature any of the actual flowers that she discussed in her post. Instead, the bloom that she grew for the occasion, a Rosa Mundi, is visible on the tag of one of the bras.
The lingerie collection is just one of the many ways that Victoria’s Secret is celebrating the individuality of women in the year 2020. The lingerie brand previously held a special exhibition, Victoria’s Secret Dream Catwalk, in London, which displayed lingerie models wearing some of the most stunning gowns in the brand’s history. The outfits were designed by some of the most influential names in fashion, such as Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, and Victoria Beckham.
A Different Animal
In January 2020, it was reported that the actor Jim Carrey bought a one-of-a-kind diamond necklace, valued at more than $1 million, for his coquettish girlfriend, Gal Gadot. The actress and former Miss Israel Gal tweeted a picture of herself wearing the breathtaking diamond, and wrote: “My heart is full 😭😭 I love you so much Jim”. The 38-year-old actor has a history of purchasing expensive gifts for celebrities, and this was seen as yet another show of affection. In the same month, it was announced that the comedian would be presenting the prestigious 2020 Golden Globe Award for Best Comedy Performance to actor-comedian Robert De Niro. The 82-year-old actor has been dating the 39-year-old actress since 2015. They were once engaged, but decided to call off the wedding in favor of a private life together. The couple have two children, Genevieve and Vincent.
The “Twilight” Effect
Pattinson recently spoke to Rolling Stone about his private life, and opened up about the “Twilight” effect in Hollywood: “It’s fascinating how much the world turns on Edward Cullen. It was always interesting to see how people reacted to it. I guess it’s the ‘Twilight’ effect. Like, everyone loves a little vampire story once the sun goes down.” He also noted that he prefers to keep his personal life private, and doesn’t want it to affect his career.
It’s not just celebrities who’ve been caught up in the romance of the year. The fashion industry has been swept away by romance as well. In January 2020, it was reported that Victoria Beckham had begun hosting regular meetings with her favorite designers, seeking advice and sharing ideas. The designer, who is one of fashion’s greatest powerhouses, has been working tirelessly to expand her line and grow her business. She hires new designers and gives them her trust, as she seeks to elevate the work of those around her.
Beckham has long been rumored to be in a relationship with designer Marc Jacobs, and the pair have frequently been photographed locking lips and gazing into each other’s eyes. In the past, the designer has called the Victoria Beckham brand “a true inspiration” and acknowledged her as a key collaborator in the success of his business.
An Epic Love Story
In May 2019, Vanity Fair writer Dominique Leone broke the news of an epic love story that is bound for Hollywood: the story of Marc Jacobs and Victoria Beckham, who began dating in the spring of 2015 and stayed together despite their busy schedules and hectic schedules. The designer, who is renowned for his luxurious lifestyle, has long been rumored to be in a relationship with the fashion icon. In the past, the designer has said: “I love Victoria. She’s such a free spirit and so beautiful… It would be so wonderful to spend the rest of my life with her. If it wasn’t for our busy schedules, I would definitely ask her to marry me.” Beckham, who is often described as the female version of Tom Hanks, has starred in films like the Harry Potter series and the Fantastic Mr. Fox, and has maintained a busy schedule dating and promoting Jacobs’ collections. The pair have kept their relationship under wraps for the most part as they continue to work together to expand their brands and build their business. Marc Jacobs’ company, Marc Jacobs, released a statement after the news broke, saying: “We’re ecstatic that our secret is out. We’ve been quietly making love to each other for the past two years, and we’re thrilled to finally be able to share our story with the world.”
Hollywood has been engulfed by romance as of late. In December 2019, 50 Cent, who is known for his flamboyant lifestyle, became engaged to Daniela Pacheco, the Brazilian socialite and fashion icon. The two had been dating for two years and had kept their engagement under wraps. In late 2018, the rapper purchased a $22.5 million mansion in Englewood, New Jersey, which he promptly decked out in stylish décor. In October 2019, the singer Harry Styles began dating model and musician Hailey Bieber. In May 2020, it was announced that actor and comedian Joe Morton had proposed to musician and model Hayley Williams. The two have been dating for several months and are busy planning for the future.
The future appears to be a happy one for these couples as they embark on their new blended families. Many of them are keen to share their joy on social media. In January 2020, it was reported that Gaga had changed her Snapchat story to share the news of her and Bradley’s engagement. The singer is best known for playing with gender stereotypes and breaking boundaries, and has previously said that she will continue to push the limits of what is considered “normal” in relationships.
Romance has certainly taken over Hollywood and the world of celebrity, as evidenced by the plethora of Instagrammers, Twitter users, and Facebook commenters whose feeds are filled with festive imagery and happy couples celebrating love.
