- Robert Pattinson turned heads at Paris Fashion Week.
- The “Twilight” star drew comparisons with a Jedi Knight for his draping brown overcoat look.
- Pattinson’s hair was also arranged into a bizarre-looking mid-part.
- Not everyone hated it, though.
One could argue that Robert Pattinson – who made his name as blood-sucking heartthrob Edward Cullen in the “Twilight” saga – is handsome enough to make anything look good.
That argument would be stretched to defend his outfit choice on Friday, though, when he turned up to the Dior show at Paris Fashion Week looking very strange indeed.
Pattinson, who is one of the faces of Dior Homme, had styled his hair into a sort of greasy mid-part for the Menswear Fall/Winter 2019/2020 show.
The 32-year-old actor layered up with a brown turtleneck, leather biker jacket, and an enormous, draped brown coat.
He teamed the outerwear with casual brown trousers and shiny, dark brown leather boots.
The outfit has earned Pattinson comparisons to everything from a Jedi Knight, to a “Les Miserables” character, to a “deranged killer.”
“i know I’m not very fashion forward but can someone explain to me why robert pattinson looks like he’s starring in les mis at this dior event,” said one person on Twitter.

Not everyone hated it, though. “We enjoyed the show Kim Jones put together today @dior,” a Robert Pattinson fan account tweeted.
“Robert Pattinson looked fierce!”
