There may be all the time one thing magnetic a couple of Robert Pattinson look on a crimson carpet, and never solely as a result of he seems on them so occasionally, though that helps. No, it’s his tendency to go to an occasion and immediately appear to be probably the most rakishly impish (or impishly rakish) individual within the normal neighborhood. All that was solely amped up by the truth that his most up-to-date public look noticed him making a crimson carpet debut together with his girlfriend of 4 years, the mannequin and actress Suki Waterhouse, at Dior’s large pre-fall 2023 menswear present held on the Nice Pyramid of Giza exterior Cairo over the weekend, the place the crimson carpet was truly manufactured from sand.
For the occasion, Pattinson (a longtime Dior ambassador) and Waterhouse wore coordinated seems to be from the model; he, in a barely slouchy, bone-white swimsuit worn over a skinny brown turtleneck, his pant legs bunched over a pair of black lug-sole mules—a stable footwear selection for trekking throughout the sand—and his hair mussed in some way horizontally. They match nicely within the setting of Dior’s desert present, which was an ode to the Dune planet of Arakkis, if it have been primarily populated by lovely males with nice cheekbones. Which, according to Denis Villeneuve’s model of that universe, it form of is.
Pattinson’s good-looking hobgoblin schtick is, arguably, what most makes him a really enjoyable model spokesman—he grew to become the face of Dior Homme perfume method again in 2013, not lengthy after his dovetailing turns in David Cronenberg’s finance-freak thriller Cosmopolis and the ultimate installment of the Twilight saga. The actor, a proudly unserious public determine (he and Waterhouse have each copped to making things up during interviews for enjoyable), even admitted to basing his preposterous Shakespearian French accent he deployed within the 2019 Netflix film The King on the voices of the French staffers at Home Dior: “I used to be speaking to somebody at Dior…and I began mimicking them and doing it on this funnier method,” he advised GQ earlier this 12 months. “I began doing it as a joke at first, however then I filmed myself and watched it again, and thought this truly kinda works.”
