What do you get when you cross a Hollywood heartthrob with an elegant English gentleman? You get one of the most interesting costume combinations seen in recent years. Recently, Robert Pattinson debuted a new look that has everyone talking – including us! Let’s take a closer look at what’s up with Robert Pattinson’s new goatee…
A Fancy Painted Hat
One of the first things you’ll notice about the actor is his hat. If you see him on the street, you’ll most certainly have your eye on his distinctive black hat with green satin lining, which is inspired by the hat maker Bradington Young. He always wears this hat when he’s meeting fans or when he’s out for a walk in London. It suits him perfectly and makes him look like a total dreamboat.
But this isn’t the only fancy hat he wears. Back in 2014, he sported a custom-made top hat with the emblematic Batman insignia carved on the side. This was a surprising choice, because normally, Robert wears his hair a little bit longer and tucks it behind his ears. So, for him to sport such an unusual cap, it had to be special. According to his publicist, this was a “proudly sponsored” hat, made in collaboration with British brand Burberry and Italian manufacturer Montblanc. He has also been seen wearing a green felt hat decorated with pictures of flowers. This one is reminiscent of an English garden party circa 1950s.
An Evolutionary Suitscape
While Robert was busy rocking some colorful hats, other members of the cast were busy evolving their looks as well. For Maude Adams, the transformation was less drastic. Since she’s playing Elizabeth Taylor, the part of the Queen Bee, she has to look like a queen. So, apart from taking voice lessons, Adams took a page out of Taylor’s book and started using more makeup. This doesn’t mean that she’s forsaken her natural beauty completely. In fact, she has been known to go makeup free once in a while, especially when portraying Taylor’s earlier years. So, it seems that Robert’s new goatee hasn’t hurt her face, either. For the most part, though, Adams has embraced the look and even said that she wouldn’t change a thing about it.
A Bit Of A Retro Appeal
While we’re on the topic of changing outfits, it’s worth noting that Robert has been seen sporting retro styles from time to time. If you saw the actor at the premiere of his latest film, High Life, you’d most likely think that he was at a time warp. Even though this look has been around for a while, it seems that it’s only been in the past couple of years that we’ve started to see it sported by famous faces. It was previously reserved for vintage car collectors or people with fantastic taste in wine.
A Classic Look
If you want to look like Robert Pattinson, you have to work hard at it. There are several ways to achieve this look. One of the best – and the simplest – is to go the classic route. By doing so, you’re sure to look like a million bucks. As we’ve established, this is a look that he favors and sometimes even goes back to. When we say “go classic,” what we mean is to dress in simple but elegant clothing. Of course, the most important thing is to accessorize it with the right accessories, like watch, wallet and even handbag. With these three items, you’re set.
If you want to make sure that you look like Robert Pattinson, avoid bright colors, flashy prints and overstimulation. Of course, the trompe-l’œil is your friend here. You can also play with shadows and lighting to give a chic illusion of dimensionality.
Cute, Don’t You Think?
When it comes to costume changes, particularly when they’re as drastic as those seen on the red carpet, it’s important to look cool and comfortable. Apart from looking like a total dreamboat, Robert has been known to sport some pretty awesome costume combinations. One look that we’ll definitely have you see more of is the one where he dresses up as a vampire. We know what you’re thinking: this is a total look that he would wear for a costume party. And you’d be right! But it’s also the perfect combination of classy and cool. If you want to look like the dark prince of the night, take some time to brush up on your fangs and practice biting down on a cocktail shaker. It’s going to be fun!
We Can’t Help But Notice
Aside from rocking the stylish goatee, it seems that Robert’s new look hasn’t exactly gone unnoticed. The hat, in particular, has become sort of a “thing.” Since it was first seen, people have been talking about it and wondering what it is that Robert is trying to say with his new look. Some celebrities have even taken to social media to share their love for the hat, while others have gone as far as to call it “brilliant.” We can’t help but notice, and we love it.
