Robert Pattinson is going to walk the red carpet tonight at Cannes ‒ for the world premiere of his film Cosmopolis!!! Excited? Want to know what he’d be wearing?
Most possibly one of Gucci’s signature silhouettes ‒ a black two-button notch lapel Signoria. Why do I think so? ‘Cos his character in the film is almost always dressed in those impeccably tailored suits, fitted white cotton shirts, slim black silk ties, leather belts with silver buckle detail and black leather lace-up dress shoes. Indeed, Gucci has collaborated with the costume designer of the film, Denise Cronenberg, to create this sleek and elegant look of R-Patz. “We are so pleased to work with Robert on ‘Cosmopolis’ and to create an effortless and classic style for his character,” said Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini.
I suppose you already know all about the film, but, but, just in case you didn’t, here’s how the story goes…
Rob plays a young billionaire asset manager, Eric Packer, on a twenty-four hour odyssey across Manhattan. Despite traffic jams and a looming financial disaster, he risks travelling cross-town in his stretch limousine for a haircut. During delays including a presidential motorcade, a celebrity funeral, and political protests, Eric receives visitors, both for business and pleasure, in his opulent, high-tech automobile. As the encounters and the economic crisis intensify, he cynically gambles with his clients’ fortunes and his own.
Right, Manhattan, young billionaire, stretch limo, suits… erm, that sounds like Chuck Bass (<3)!!
Based on Don DeLillo‘s novel of the same name, the film’s directed by David Cronenberg and also stars Juliette Binoche. And, it’s competing for the prestigious Palme d’Or at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival! Impressive…
