Robert Pattinson in Kenzo

Posted on October 22, 2012

We are more than happy to sit out this latest (and ongoing) look to the ’90s from the world of fashion. Robert, on the other hand, didn’t really get a chance to indulge the first time the ’90s rolled around, so … have at it, son.


Robert Pattinson attends ‘Breaking Dawn – Part 2’ fan event in Sydney, Australia in Kenzo.

Kenzo Fall 2012 Collection

Honestly it’s fine. Disregarding how AMAZINGLY FUCKED UP he looks from the neck up – and by that we mean horrible styling choices, not drug use – everything below that point looks pretty good. The “wildly patterned shirt under a suit, paired with clodhopper shoes” look is pretty much a ’90s classic, but this suit has a modern cut, the color really suits him, and the shirt is fun. Not our look by a long shot – not for 20 years now, anyway –  but he looks good, FROM THE NECK DOWN. We can’t even deal with what’s going on on the head and facial areas.

    I blame Johnny Depp for convincing men that looking unshaven, unbathed, and borderline homeless is a Thing One Should Do.

    • NC_Meg

      Brad Pitt probably had a hand in that, too.

    •  He looks a damn mess…what a shame.

  • mmc2315

    I’d like to start a collection for a beard trimmer.  Anyone? ===passes the hat===

    • Jill_3

       SHAVE. SHAVE. SHAVESHAVESHAVESHAVE. I just donated fifty gazillian razors because he looks like he was the loser in a fight between glue and a squirrel. He doesn’t look attractive. He looks PAINFUL. Like kissing him would scratch your face off.

    • But they look good in it… Well, maybe not Brad Pitt.

    •  I think at this point we need to raise funds for a weed-whacker.

  • oh honey. get help.

  • Eew. That is all.

  • Judy_J

    If that’s what passes for sexy with the younger crowd, I’m glad I’m old.  Give me George Clooney any day.

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      Truly!!  (Don’t even know if he’s in this latest movie), but I need a Taylor Lautner post now just to balance the world out.  I feel sorry for today’s girls- they get to pick from dirty, scruffy, hairy, dirty-hairy, scruffy-dirty, skinny-hairy, and douchy-scruffy.  Glad I grew up in a time when hairy was Tom Selleck, scruffy was Mel Gibson, dirty was ….dancing??

      • Sarah Dickerson

        Taylor Lautner’s not much better, in my book.  That hairless dolphin look?  Yuck.

        •  And after I saw a photo of Lautner on the interwebs next to an alpaca, I can’t get the resemblance out of my head.

          • Noooooooooo! lol, now I’m going to imagine Jacob shape-shifting into an alpaca instead of a wolf.

          •  I have serious belly-laughs every time I see it. Every. Time.

        • Perhaps the two are switching roles, and Pattinson is channeling a werewolf look.  

          • leilah

            That was going to be my post!  Thanx for saving me the wording-effort!

  • Young man… 

    SHAVE YOUR FACE! TRIM YOUR FRINGE! UNBUTTON YOUR GODDAMN TOP BUTTON!  (Shakes fist, clutches pearls, toddles back into the house for another Manhattan. Over shoulder) AND GET OFF MY LAWN!

    • This made my whole day.  Many thanks.  And I feel exactly the same. 

    •  My dear, I suddenly find that I adore you. 

    •  You know, he could leave the face unshaven as long as a SHAVES HIS BLOODY NECK.

    • ecallaw1977

       There really needs to be a way to triple-like a comment. 

  • Rhea May

    Please male celebrities, NECKBEARDS ARE NEVER COOL!

    • brokephilosopher

      first thing I thought was: “SHAVE YOUR FUCKING NECKBEARD.”  I thought in caps but did not yell it aloud because it is still pretty early where I live.

  • jw_ny

    I can’t even look at his head.  Fucked up indeed!

    Blocking out the head tho…the suit and shoes are fine.  Hate the shirt pattern and it doesn’t seem to go with the suit.  The collar looks weak.

  • j_anson

    I just do not, and will probably never, get him.

  • jonnyf8

    From the neck down it IS fabulous.  And I dont’ know what it is he’s suddenly starting to appeal to me and he never did before.  Maybe it was KStew cheating on him or something.

  • NECKBEARD. Guuuh. He might almost make that patchy beard work if he didn’t have the fucking NECKBEARD. He looks gross.
    Of all the 90s trends to come back into style, I’m glad oversize suits are as yet staying in the 90s. I keep watching Friends reruns on Nick at Nite and find the shoulder seams hanging on the biceps really annoying.

  • rissa42210

    Ugh, he has the head of a hobo right now.  I could tolerate the weak beard but for the disgusting display on his neck.  CLEAN UP  YOUR NECK, BOY.  His hair is unacceptable.  It’s like a team of people stood around him and said “Nah, not dirty enough.  More grease!”  Is he using his face as a protest against his heartthrob reputation?  If so, cry me a river, Edward.

  • Zach Ng Zheng Yang

    he needs a face intervention. period.

  • A B

    He looks crazier everytime I see him.

  • Anathema_Device

    I love this look on him. Agree he needed to neaten up above the neck. Now I’ll check out of this thread before everyone starts falling all over themselves to say how stinky he looks in three…two…one…

  • schadenfreudelicious

    it’s sad that a greasy mop of hair and unkempt face (complete with disgusting neck beard )can pass for even remotely appealing…

  • I like beards – my husband has one.  But there is a difference between a nicely groomed beard and someone who has given up shaving.

    Neck beards are gross and you need to clean up the notch of the beard on your checks young man!  You look like a hobo!

  • hmariec19

    Hahaha. Dude is HIGH AS A KITE. He has no idea where he is.

    Oddly enough, I do like the outfit though.

    •  True Dat!   He looks majorly baked.

      • Are you a Saints fan?

        • Oh hardly.  lol   I picked up the “true dat” from a friend.

  • StellaZafella

    I love the color of the suit…too bad “The 90’s” is vintage now…

    I wonder if he knows his head styling makes him look old, dazed and confused?


  • kayleymaybe

    You know, he used to do a cute disheveled thing that I at least partially understood.  Now he just looks crazy.

  • PeggyOC

    Gaaaaah.  Neck beard and skeevy hair!?  What is up with this boy?  Shudder.

  • He makes me stabby. 

  • MsOlympia

    Dude looks like he needs some Doritos and Dr. Pepper, STAT.

  • MilaXX

    I don’t mind the overly styled hair, but dude needs to shave.

    BTW did the studio or PTB really make him and Kristin do fake reunion photo ops to avoid negative press for the move? Lame

  • blumonky

    Even if he just shaved his neck, it would be an improvement. A bristly neck is nasty looking and I don’t mean good nasty. The worst part is that it looks like he actually takes clippers to it to keep it that length and that means that it’s on purpose…

  • Srw27

    The neck beard…NOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  • jjfg

    The look does work if you keep his head out of the picture.  As for from the neck up – I’m one of those who doesn’t get the appeal of this guy in the first place, and I get it less every time I see him.

  • decormaven

    If there’s ever a remake of The Wolfman, he’s a shoo-in. He won’t even have to sit in the make-up chair!

  • I just can’t even.  I hated the 90’s fashion the first time around, and cannot sign off on this shit coming back in style. Not to mention what’s going on with his facial hair. He does know that Taylor played the werewolf…right? 

  • jmorino08

    He looks like he belongs in one of the Samberg/Timberlake 90s boy band parodies. 

  • rloliveira

    He’s doing that thing that very good looking men do to try to deny that they are very good looking. Brad Pitt does it; Johnny Depp does it. They get so much attention for their looks that they consciously or unconsciously mess themselves up a bit to try to quash the unending fawning of fans. YEs, I know, poor them. But oodles of unwanted focus and attention can get tiresome.

  • I swear to you all, I will, me, personally, grab this guy, strap him down and shave his damned neck!  Then you can all have him back, cause he does nothing for me.  Cute shirt, though.

    • formerlyAnon

      Will a modest financial contribution motivate you to just shave his whole damn beard, while you’ve got him strapped down? And if you fear you must collect enough money to pay the lawyers who will defend you, I am sure we can find other contributors.

  • nannypoo


  • Tatiana Luján

    His hair looks so dirty, yikes!

  • PastryGoddess

    Ah yes the Neard, why boystars, why do you do this to us?

    I understand the need for fuzziness, but clean that shit up

  • Joyce VG

    Ugh. I hate this look. Stop being depressed Robert seriously. 

  • Neckbeard. ::Shudder::

  • butterflysunita

    Every time I see photos of this guy I wonder why he’s a star.  

  • Imasewsure

    Ignoring the head… love the shirt… like the suit but I really loved the shoes on the model.

  • Mary Saucier

    Ok, can someone PLEASE tell me why this kid is considered “OMG! GORGEOUS!!!” because I seriously do not get it.  I mean, I love me some ugly/handsome men, but this is just a complete mystery to me.

  • judybrowni

    From the neck up, he’s a deranged squirrel.

  • UGH. That beard.

  • Jangle57

    When he’s cleaned up (ie, shaven), intellectually I understand the appeal though he’s not my type.  But when he looks like this – did he decide to become a werewolf? – in a shirt made out of really ugly fabric that takes me back to my youth in the 60s – all I can think is: ewwwwwwwwwwwww

  • MissMariRose

    That’s a whole lotta derp in those pictures.

  • DinaSews

    He is so fug.  I feel my lunch coming up.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    The sad thing is, he’s got a very nice face, nice bone structure and all, but you can’t see it because of his disgusting beard and greasy hair.  Yech!

    • Candigirl1968

      I was watching Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and it took me about an hour to realize that the dashing boy who is Harry’s rival is Robert P.  There is no excuse for looking this awful when we know that underneath all that nonsense is a whole lot of cute.  

      • AtticWife

        SO much cute. I am firmly Team Cedric.

    • AtticWife

      Seriously. He’s a really handsome boy. Sometimes I think he’s a douche-canoe for going all Greasy Feral Homeless Guy at red carpet events, but sometimes I sympathize. I reckon if I’d had ten million dipshit teenage girls screeching the name of my most-famous character at me literally EVERYWHERE I WENT for the last five years I’d want to revel in some ugly myself.

  • unbornfawn

    Wash your hair and shave dude.

  • Pants_are_a_must

    He should’ve stayed broken up, or whatever that relationship is about.

  • Vanja

    Ugh, neckbeard. I like the shire and the suit, but not together. The Dr Martens type of shoes I like as well, but not with the suit.

  • Dot

    I will never understand the fixation on this guy. I find him terribly unattractive. The fact that he always looks so greasy and unkempt doesn’t help. Also, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to board the 90s fashion revival train. Ick.

  •  A man can go unshaven if he has a good beard. Robert, we all know you try, but you just don’t have one.

  • Cathy S

    I love that shirt but, dear god, that hair! What the heck?

  • Annabelle Archer


  • JauntyJohn

    Women get to wear makeup, men get to have facial hair — WHEN DONE PROPERLY.
    Honestly, if he were to just shave his neck it would look like a choice, not a mistake.

  • AthenaJ

    I’m trying to figure out which 90’s sitcom Kenzo stole that shirt from.

  • well he looks ridiculous.

  • EditKitten

    I just don’t get the love for this guy.

  • Dear Kristen, I don’t have much use for you but I no longer blame you for straying, if you just leave the married guys alone.  Dump his ass already.

    • azeline

      eh. that just wrong. you don’t like the guy, fine. but no one deserves to be cheated on. and Rpattz always comes off as genuine, sincere, sweet, funny in his interviews. I don’t get the hate for him.

      • Fair enough.  My comment was meant tongue-in-cheek, but I don’t really mean to be encouraging cheating on your S.O.   It’s just that his current look would pretty much be a deal breaker for me.  If I were ever in the habit of dating celebrities. 🙂

  • Why is he always tipping over??

    • kimmeister

      BWAHAHAHA, I hadn’t noticed it before!  Maybe he’s trying to be a human metronome.

  • Stephanie Ferber

    take a shower and wash your hair!

    • janierainie

      And shave your neck!!!

  • quiltrx

    I love the shirt…with what I will always think of as a ‘Peter Gabriel collar’.  I would like to see a jacket with a looser fit, though.

    And again, Robert honey…CEDRIC is the look we like.  Looking like you stink is NOT sexy.  I can almost go for the hair if it looked a little cleaner, but never, EVER with that shitty beard!

  • He is so stoned.

  • God. He is just. So. Not. Appealing. Cedric was a pure fluke. That’s the only explanation.

  • crash1212

    NECK BEARD! Yuck!

  • onefifteen

    He looks like he’s in a funk from being cheated on, honestly.

  • fnarf

    To be fair, I know from experience that a long flight to Australia turns you into a twitching, squinting lunatic for a couple of days. Even though he presumably gets to sit in the lay-flat beds, the rich barstid. But I gotta say, he doesn’t look homeless; he looks, er, defective. Like an inbred hillbilly. Cue the theme from “Deliverance”.

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    who do i have to @#$! to get one of those burgundy parkas?

  • B_C_J

    The fit of this suit is alright although I object to the boxy silhouette that the coat projects. However that is a design choice. The color is acceptable although loden green is not my first choice for a premiere.  The shirt is ghastly. I have no issues with his facial hair.  His facial bone structure is exquisite – almost delicate and the hair gives it a punch of masculinity.  His hair style is simply tired which is sad because he obviously has beautiful hair.  He needs a new look stat! 

  • tereliz

    Poor dear. He was managing to look pretty together for those five seconds that he escaped KStew’s clutches. She brings him waaaay down. Can’t wait til this movie poledance is over so they can break up again. 

  • Ana_ragu

    But–isn’t he the one who DOESN’T play the werewolf? How come he resembles one so closely? Ick.

  • Trisha26

    Neck beard. Ugh. No.

  • Did anyone else go straight to “Dick in a Box”?

  • GorgeousThings


  • azeline

     MTE. He looked great during Cosmopolis promo. It’s like Kstew sucking the life out of him. idgi.

  • joything

    That’s funny, I also thought he looked AMAZINGLY FUCKED UP, and his styling choices never occurred to me.

  • This just seals the deal. Team Jacob all the way.

  • I’ve never actually seen his work – how do they manage to wipe the derp off his face long enough for him to portray anyone with a functioning vocabulary? Or is that utterly beside the point?

    (Why yes I am quite bitchy today, thanks for asking.)

  • Puckndc

    Am I the only person in the world who thinks he is just bone ugly??

  • DaveUWSNYC

    Seeing an expiration date starting to appear on his forehead…or is that more hair?

  • MzzPants

    Grease ball, neck beard.  Ew.

  • Jet lag

    • formerlyAnon

      Probably. But I’d Forgive All if he’d just for goshsakes shave!

  • The ambassador from Neckbeardistan has arrived. 

    Seriously, if it were groomed facial hair (with no neck briars) and if the hair on his head were washed and combed, this would be gorgeous.  We wouldn’t notice the zombie eyes and lurch posture.

  • librarygrrl64

    That neck beard is an atrocity.

  • No. No, no, no, NO. I haaaaate that shirt. And don’t get me started on the greasy hair, that horrendous beard, and the fact that he looks like he hasn’t slept in a couple of days. 

  • Does this guy portray a vampire 24/7?

  • Esz

    Oh my god that NECK BEARD!!!


  • Zippypie

    I find it amusing when pretty boys try to grunge themselves up.  It never works, baby.  NEVER.

  • snarkykitten

    I think he could actually pull this retro (jesus, my childhood is retro now?) if he’d only shave that god awful fungus from his face. Someone needs to strap him down and wax his neck

  • formerlyAnon

     If he would shave, it’d push things back over the line and all would be o.k.  I can live with the hair issues, the allergy eyes (or, whatever) and ungroomed eyebrows. Particularly since I rarely see his photo.

  • margaret meyers

    To say he looks like a mental patient is to insult mental patients.

  • His clothes look fine. The face is broken, though.

  • If he quiffed (quoffed?) his hair and shaved his beard he’d look like a perfect dandy gentleman. Now he just kinda looks like he smells funny

  • guest2visits

    No.. seriously this is not his best look. I’m ok with the shirt, the suit’s a wreck on him.  He looks messed up.. unhappy?

  • Oh me oh my, someone payed a drug-addled homeless guy to stumble around for the cameras in really expensive clothing.

  • ccm800

    I dont think Id be so quick to dismiss drug use. He looks three inches from an intervention to me. 

  • After learning that prolific facial hair growth is tied to male baldness, I wonder if these male stars understand they’re broadcasting to the world that “I’M GOING TO GO BALD REALLY SOON.”

    Seriously though, if you’re growing to grow a shrubbery on your face, at least style it. Try a 1890s era handlebar mustache. Or a toothbrush mustache. If you’re evil, go for the Snidely Whiplash look, ANY OF WHICH ARE BETTER THAN THAT MOLD-LIKE PLAGUE SPREADING OVER HIS FACE.

  • RzYoung

    I really like the suit, all the hair is wilfully bad

  • He looks awful. I didn’t like this style the first time around – and I dislike it even more now. 

  • Nice shirt, Parker Lewis! 

  • lalahartma


  • Pterodactyl111

    Good Lord, he’s got a beard like a grad student.

  • alwaysanswerb


  • LinXGUA

    What i hate is the pose. He does it on purpose, right? Like he’s lurking at ussss.
    Nice suit, btw. Nice colors too.
