Robert Pattinson graces the cover of Vanity Fair this month (November 2018), and the November issue is dedicated to the actor’s style evolution over the years. The British actor has always been a favourite of ours – not only for his timeless good looks but also for his sweet nature. However, it seems that Pattinson’s fashion choices have become rather eclectic over the years. While still keeping a classy air, he has tried on various occasions to mix fashion and royalty, and we must admit that it usually works. In this article, we will examine the actor’s style evolution, looking back at some of his most memorable red carpet looks. So, sit back, relax, and get ready to feel dazzled. Let’s dig in.

The Early Days

Back in 2011, the 33-year-old actor was still very much a fan of classic Hollywood glamour, as he showcased in several red carpet appearances. On January 27, he attended the premiere of the film Alice in Wonderland, looking dashing in a black suit with a white shirt and black tie.

Just a few days earlier, he had turned up at the 72nd Annual Golden Globes looking suave in a blue suit and tie, his dark hair slicked back. He was also seen at the Screen Actors Guild Awards in a classic pin-stripe suit and tie. That same year, he sported a blue suit and tie during the UK leg of the Prince Harry & Meghan Markle wedding tour, which was a departure from his usual white-coloured attire.

Pattinson continued to pull off classic looks throughout the 2010s. He sported suits and ties in a variety of colours, often paired with a plain white or blue shirt. Additionally, the actor wore patterned or polka-dotted shirts and ties on several occasions, most notably at the 2012 Vanity Fair Oscar Party. At the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party, he sported a white shirt and black tie with pale blue pin-stripes, a look that was repeated at the 2019 Academy Awards.

The Rise Of The Modern Gentleman

While still keeping up with the classic look, the 33-year-old actor also experimented with modern and quirky fashion choices in the early 2010s. He donned a grey flannel suit and white shirt for a Chanel fashion show in Paris in December 2011. Several months later, he graced the cover of Vogue UK with his sons, Harvey and Livingston, looking dashing in a casual ensemble.

The following year, he wore a checked suit and pocket square for a Burberry fashion show in London. In January 2013, he was seen outside of a Paris hotel in a black suit and white shirt, a look that was repeated two months later at the 2013 Golden Globes in a classic blue suit. The next year, in January 2014, he wore a checked suit and tie for the Victoria Beckham men’s ready-to-wear show during London Fashion Week, and he followed this up with a red suit and tie for the Beckham brand’s Autumn Winter 2018 show.

By the late 2010s, this new style direction had begun to permeate Pattinson’s public appearances. At the 2017 Vanity Fair Oscar Party, he wore an off-white suit and tie, his white shirt open at the collar. This look was repeated at the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party, where he wore olive-green trousers instead of slacks, along with a casual green shirt.

The Return To Classic

Back in his native country, England, and at the height of the Brexit uncertainty, it would seem that Pattinson had come full circle in his fashion choices. At the 2019 Academy Awards, he returned to his classic suits and ties, looking suave in a tan suit and tie. He also donned a classic white shirt with a yellow tie for the Buckinghamshire Wildlife Trust’s annual Big Garden Birdwatch, which was launched in April 2019.

Style Evolution

Pattinson rarely makes major headlines for his fashion choices, and he generally keeps a low profile when it comes to style. However, it seems that he is slowly straying from the safe route. Over the years, his choice of attire has become increasingly eclectic, and we must admit that it usually works. Still, one of the most memorable fashion moments of his career came in 2007, when Kate Moss sported a hat made entirely out of fish eggs. While eccentric, the fashion choice was certainly memorable.

Here is a rundown of our top-five red carpet moments with Robert Pattinson.

1. Kate Moss Hat

In 2007, Pattinson appeared on the cover of Vogue UK, looking every bit the gentleman in a classic white shirt and tie. However, it seems that he had an equally memorable time the previous year, when he sported a hat made entirely out of Kate Moss’ famous egg-shaped beads. While eccentric, the fashion choice was certainly memorable.

2. Burberry Checked Suit

The British fashion house has been by his side throughout the entire fashion evolution, with the luxury brand having expressed their delight at witnessing the transformation of a “gentleman into a modern-day Renaissance man”. While still keeping up with the classic look, the 33-year-old actor also experimented with modern and quirky fashion choices in the early 2010s. He wore a grey flannel suit and white shirt for a Chanel fashion show in Paris in December 2011. Several months later, he graced the cover of Vogue UK with his sons, Harvey and Livingston, looking dashing in a casual ensemble.

3. Grey Flannel Suit

In 2013, the star sported a classic blue suit and tie for the UK leg of the Prince Harry & Meghan Markle wedding tour. He also had a classic tan suit and tie picked out for the tour, along with white shirts and yellow ties. We presume that this was to keep in line with the wedding theme. Although the suit and tie combination has become somewhat habitual since then, grey flannel has been a firm favourite of ours ever since.

4. White Shirt With Black Tie

We can’t think of a more classic look than a white shirt and black tie. It seems that the 33-year-old has kept this look ever since. This is likely because it is the epitome of elegance and classic British style. At the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party, he sported a white shirt and black tie. That same year, he also sported a white shirt and black tie at the UK leg of the Prince Harry & Meghan Markle wedding tour. It is likely that the couple’s outfits were chosen with this look in mind, as they are both passionate about British design.

5. Off-White Suits And Ties

In the later part of last year (2018), the actor showed up at several award ceremonies in an off-white suit and tie. It seems that he has evolved into something of a suit king. At the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party, he sported a tan suit and tie, his white shirt open at the collar. This look was repeated at the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party, where he wore olive-green trousers instead of slacks, along with a casual green shirt.

However, it wasn’t all smooth sailing for the actor. At the 2019 Golden Globes, he wore an electric blue suit and white shirt, as well as a red suit and tie for a Beyonce concert at the London Stadium. It is likely that this was to keep in line with the theme of her album, Lemonade.

In all, it seems that Robert Pattinson has kept up with the fashion trends. While still keeping a classy air, he has tried on various occasions to mix fashion and royalty, and it usually works. Still, one of the most memorable fashion moments of his career came in 2007, when Kate Moss sported a hat made entirely out of fish eggs. While eccentric, the fashion choice was certainly memorable.
