POLL: GQ bows down and pays respect to Robert Pattinson's Kenzo shirt. Do you agree?

POLL: GQ bows down and pays respect to Robert Pattinson's Kenzo shirt. Do you agree?

Rob has a wild streak when it comes to his red carpet looks. Black leather pants and red velvet jacket, anyone? Rob hasn't gone that extreme in ages but I love it when he breaks out something that's fashionably controversial in the fandom.

Photobucket

GQ gave Rob props for his bold choice at the Sydney fan event for Breaking Dawn Part 2:
Sometimes we just gotta bow down and pay our respect. Usually this involves a really well-executed print shirt. Often Pattinson's involved, too.
That's a pretty nice compliment for a shirt so many of you shivered at and while it may have looked like it was more on the vintage side, that's just not the case.

You know CJ was all over this look from the green-hued suit to the designer shirt. Excerpt from The Fashion Court:
The 26-year-old English actor braved the rain and rocked the red carpet wearing Kenzo tonight at Fox Studios in Sydney, Australia as he arrived to an enormous crowd of screaming fans at the first official fan event to celebrate “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2″, the final installment of the record-breaking vampire movie franchise.
You know, I knew Robert was willing to take a chance with fashion but, this dude is really on a whole other level. He busted out a in-your-face printed shirt and a camouflage moss green suit. 
Granted it’s not a obvious bright green, but Robert still flipped my promo world upside down today with this two-button blazer and trousers that he partnered with the bold medallion printed shirt ($325, barneys.com) from the Fall 2012 Menswear Collection.I know this is going to get mixed reviews as it’s so ‘out there’ and ‘loud’, but I kinda dig it — along with the fact that he takes a risk.
Visit TFC to find the purchase link for the Medallion Print Kenzo shirt and to know about Rob's footwear.

So some fashion gurus are into Rob's medallion magic and after almost a week of letting it settle into your Rob brain, what do you think??

I voted that the shirt was cool but it did not match moss green suit or the shoes he had on I'm sorry Rob but should  you have worn something(idk) black or maybe something like a dark moss greenish shirt something like that I'm sorry baby I love you lots!

Lolli said...

I love it when people are into fashion and take risks - some hits and some misses. I also enjoy seeing what Kristen wears and Michelle Obama etc. I think Rob knows his fashion and knows what he likes and is just quirky and eccentric enough to go for what he likes even if it is a bit on the edge - leaving mainstream in the dust. As always, I learn from Mr. Pattinson.

Jennifer said...

lol ... really surprised there aren't more votes for naked as the day he was born!  I was gonna vote that one until I read the one about Rob looking great no matter what he wears.  Yeah, I didn't appreciate the kenzo shirt ... still just don't find it attractive at all.  But the thing is, Rob is so damn FINE, the gorgeousness of his face overpowers the hideousness of that shirt ... so it all equals out in the end.  :P

LUV YA ROB ;D   (just not the shirt) LOL

Rob's(Electronic)Cigarette said...

I didn't mind the shirt and I liked the suit color.  Rob can pretty much wear anything in my opinion.  What constantly kills me though is the top shirt button.  My b-friend tried to do it too and I cringe.  The only time it shuld be buttoned is if there is a tie being worn.  Of ocurse, having said all that I'd lay down at his feet no matter what he was wearing.

Regina said...

great to read such nice words) i was one of those who had nothing against the shirt, and yes.....i still like it) and i love all of his fashion experiments, cause this  man can ROOOOOOCK everything) he`s always very stylish without  trying!!!!

Maaike said...

I actually loved the shirt, but not the suit (cut, texture & color) that was paired with it. If the suit had been a nicely tailored dark blue that matched the shirt it would have looked much more upscale and less grandpa. But that's just my take. 

Lyn63 said...

even though I'm not a fan of that shirt !! Its great hes confident enough to wear something from high fashion on the red carpet he is still a young man after all :)

Kim Fulton said...

Voiced my opinion on this shirt when he wore it on the Red Carpet . . . LOVED IT THEN & NOW!!

VioletLily said...

I voted that he looks great no matter what.  I think I would have liked this particular look better if he was clean-shaven (or with less scruff) and with shorter hair.  But, as I voted, I think he always looks pretty fantastic!

Amber Cann said...

very british...love it

Gozde said...

Burn ugly shirt BURN! :))

Satine86 said...

I voted the same way as you did.  I think if he wore it like the model in the other pic or even had a tie to balance the print with the solid color suit it would have looked much better IMO.  If he had less scruff too, as he did when he returned from Australia, I think it would have been absolutely perfect, and I would have said "Gucci who?"  All in all it was a bold decision and I said in my comments when he walked the red carpet that I hoped GQ would like it and apparently they did.

Gozde said...

Like that he is prepared to take risks - even if my husband had a similar one in the '70s. I prefer him eccentric to boring celebrity "good taste". British style is a bit more out there I think - look at Tom Stu!

Gozde said...

I like the shirt. It's an interesting and bold choice.  I went for the beautiful in anything option, cos he is, but Rob in his birthday suit....f**k yes !!!

Gozde said...

I loved it when I first saw it (I even painted it LOL) but had not realised that the suit was a moss green until I looked closer - so wow and even more thumbs up for our Rob - sock it to 'em our lovely man xx

Gozde said...

I agree.. apart from the husband bit of course.

Gozde said...

I love it that he pushes the envelope with everything he does, whether it's fashion, jokes or acting.  Love you Rob!

Gozde said...

Well, the shirt is back, eh? I remember saying in regards to the shirt that I didn't care what he wore because it is HIM that rocks me (this shirt just OK) -- having said that, I also remembered the black Kenzo jacket he wore not too long ago and it looked spectacular on him -- the Kenzo line is hip and young and IMO he looks great in (or out!) of any style. As I've said before, he bewitches me in all states of dress (or undress)......ALWAYS.

Gozde said...

Couldn't agree with you more!!
Love the new avi by the way ;o)

Gozde said...

Love your avi too. I hope it doesn't change before my comment appear! LOL!

Gozde said...

I do have a nasty habit of doing that don't I ....LMAO!! 
Well haggy wanted to make an appearance for Halloween but I beat her down and put her back into her cage.
So this one is staying ...for a while at least.

Gozde said...

Give me the key. I don't trust you..... LMFAO!

Gozde said...

I can't she swallowed it and my right middle finger. lo)

Gozde said...

Totally :)

Gozde said...

Damn i overlooked the naked option....that would be my vote....i admit i needed half a day to appriciate the shirt with the suit. but now i dig it too. i am thankful and love that Rob is not as boring as most are, he takes risks, he does what he wants, and he does it impressively well. 

Gozde said...

ROFLMFAO! Give her your other middle finger, maybe she puke it back up!

Gozde said...

I would love to have the picture that makes your Avi. Any suggestion where I could get it - like Tumblr?

Gozde said...

Now these pictures proove something significant and we knew it all along: The suit and the shirt too look SO MUCH BETTER on Rob than on the models......

Gozde said...

I agree on the grandpa look - also sort of a homeless look :) It reminds me a little of the New Moon grandpa look.

Gozde said...

Already taken care of I dosed her with ipecac..ROLF

Gozde said...

I'm a pervert so I voted I'm never happy...i just want him naked but thats not the case. I love him in anything :)

Gozde said...

good observation..... I agree with you :)

Gozde said...

I never thought I'd love an ensemble more than the magenta suit of the Eclipse premier - like someone went back in a time machine to 1965 and pulled him off of Carnaby St.  I was wrong.  This outfit is all win.  The bold print shirt with the somber suit is so quintessentially English.  And the burgundy Dr. Martens?  Oi.  Atta boy, Rob.

Gozde said...

Gozde said...

oh I agree with ya said that is so true *if he did wear a tie to balance out the print with the solid color* OH yes so much better I don't know who dressed him but whoever did I swear is color blind LOL! and I love his scruff but yeah I have too say it is borderline a beard more than just a little bit of scruff :D ps after all that voting he better win! :P

Gozde said...

*get naked for me Rob* Tink you are a naughty girl but great minds think alike!

Gozde said...

welcome too the Perve Club LMAO!!

Gozde said...

yeah I overlooked the naked option too! snaps fingers* DAMN!

Gozde said...

:-D

Gozde said...

In your avi Rob looks like he lost his best friend LOL!

Gozde said...

You can have more than one selection for this vote ;)

Gozde said...

Thank you!!!  Wonderful !!!

Gozde said...

Well I'd say he was taking direction from the photographer Leah.
But if I wanted to hazard a guess as to what he was thinking I'd say he was pissed with people telling him who his best fried should be.

Gozde said...

Not my favourite look but I think it's cool, he looks like a musician in it....Robford and sons or something.

Gozde said...

What can you say but the MAN is A FREAKING  BAD ASS!! Who else can pull it off! I Love a man who knows what he's doing!!

Gozde said...

Personally I loved the outfit - it was certainly "different" but I loved it - well done Rob for trying something different xx

Gozde said...

I adore him in his Gucci suits and I wasn't expecting this look, I'll admit it isn't my particular favorite however, it works for him and I say kudo's to Rob for pushing the envelope. At least he's not locked in to wearing just one brand or style, I think it's daring and like I said it certainly works for him.

Gozde said...

Did you see this?

https://twitter . com/FeistyAngel34/status/260274445715922944/photo/1

Gozde said...

Rob is sooooooo much better looking than either of those models! I liked the suit jacket - interesting modern cut and details but the cut of then pants was not flattering on him. Meh on the shirt, but glad the official fashionistas are on the fan bandwagon. The more the merrier in supporting Rob.

Gozde said...

Ah, you noticed the shoes...he does seem to favour a retro look -- I think he'd have enjoyed Soho in the sixties... ;-)

Gozde said...

Betcha our frugal little angel did not pay that for that shirt. I'm thinking it was either;
a: A gift or
b: Purchased for him by someone on his team or
c: Worn as a nod to the designer
Of course I could be wrong if he's feeling rich these days. All I know is I like it on him, but probably not on anyone else.

Gozde said...

Can anyone join??

Gozde said...

are you a perv???? I'm sure you can

Gozde said...

aww :-( that shirt brought a smile to my face; it reminded me of the shirts boys wore back when i was a preteen/young teen. In fact, I have a photo of a male friend of mine (who was the lead in the rock group in which I sang) wearing a shirt like that. :-)

Gozde said...

This is definitely the group I belong to, I just knew I would fit in somewhere!!!!
Great minds think alike!!!

Gozde said...

I am definitely a member, and I can prove it!!:)

Gozde said...

Of course!!

Gozde said...

I am voting all of the above!

Gozde said...

ITA. Top button, or two, undone..everybody wins..("Let's see some of that chest hair")  ;-)

Gozde said...

i love love love the suit and shoes.  the shirt must burn.  ;-)  i hope we get to see that suit again.

Gozde said...

Love the shoes..burgundy leather does somethin' to me.. ;-)

Gozde said...

I wonder about all of his premier/event clothes. I think most of these celebrities get a lot of this stuff sent to them by designers. I was assuming a bunch of clothes get delivered to his hotel room by different designers and then he chooses what to wear. Not that I base these assumptions on first hand knowledge. I am curious about it though. Also curious if most celebs have their managers travel w them so often. Nick or Steph are usually with him at any kind of professional appearance. Is this the norm? I've never payed attention enough to another actor to have even think about their agents.

Gozde said...

The shirt is OK.  Just not with a suit!

Gozde said...

Hi Rosie! I'm way behind..again.  RL had me by the throat!

Gozde said...

I loved the suit and the contrast--navy would have been too calm and would not have had the shirt stand out. This suit gives the shirt its opportunity. :-) And I love a grandpa look (love suspenders, vests, pocket-watches, etc) but then, I'm a grandmother. ;-) 

Gozde said...

I loved that New MOon grandpa look . :-)

Gozde said...

Some collars just look better buttoned, IMNSHO.

Gozde said...

Gozde, you remind me of an odd joke my mum used to have, that I didn't get for a long time: if she didn't like a tie or a shirt someone was wearing, she would say, his shirt is all wet, and everyone (but myself!) would laugh. It was only later I found out that she was implying the tie (or shirt) was a 'pisser.' (I don't  know if that translates well to English!) 

Gozde said...

Rob may be my Oprah, but Lord, I'm not paying $325 for that shirt. 

Gozde said...

He was ultra-gorgeous in NM..the suit was old-fashioned, but not grandpa-ish on him, imo. I thought it was beautiful on him. <3

Gozde said...

I wonder the same things. I think his managers travel with him because they love him (and to see after him). I assume the clothes are handled like you said, but maybe not always. I would love a documentary style video about bts during promo, or just a day-in-the-life type of thing,for those of us who long to spend time with Rob, but will never get to. That's just me always wishin' and dreamin'.

Gozde said...

Can I just add to that poll that instead of GucciRob I would really like to see BurberryRob? I mean, those Gucci suits he's been wearing are really fabulous, but I would love to see him wearing Burberry. It's an amazing, British brand. He's an amazing, British actor. And about that shirt, it's not my favourite, but it's not ugly either. And it looks good on him. I like that he doesn't play safe all the time, chooses different colours, prints.

Gozde said...

Well, at least the shirt looks a lot better on Rob than that scary looking Kenzo model!

Gozde said...

Does anyone know for sure...seems like I read where Rob was offered a few years ago to represent Burberry but turned it down (2 million $). It was when his career was taking off and maybe he was too busy. But I'd love him in those clothes, too.

Gozde said...

BWEN, I can't believe it, I finally figured out how to change my Avi (don't ask) and damn you...you did the same from the same photoshoot, different view, thankfully!  Great minds think alike, I guess. 

Gozde said...

Maybe it's because he doesn't have a publicist!

Gozde said...

HA, yes he does.  How about mine?  You like better?

Gozde said...

Don't care what HE wears,looks gorgeous in everything,but I would prefer a bit of nakednessLOL

Gozde said...

I really DID like the shirt.  When I posted that I liked it previously, I think people thought I was being sarcastic.  I like guys who are willing to try some fun fashion.

Gozde said...

Sonja, you forgot
d: Something he found in his grandmother's closet from 1974.

That shirt is so ugly, when he looked in the mirror, I'm surprised his reflection didn't look back at him and shake his head, LOL! 

Gozde said...

 So right LOL

Gozde said...

LOVE it!! Your avi is perfect. 
But then has Mr. Pattinson ever taken a bad picture?Plus it is just a sign of your impeccable taste! lol

Gozde said...

Like he really can't believe you just asked that question. lol

Gozde said...

WHOT????!!!

yayyy ;D

Gozde said...

At least he's learned how to button his shirt properly and tuck it in. Sheesh. Never thought I'd miss those days. Moar skin! 

Gozde said...

Yay! Not to brag about but I did mentioned this in one of the posts below and since day 1, I loved the shit! A I said before, it is so out there and to me he looked like a Rock star! I didn't like the suit so much though.

Gozde said...

Sorry everyone, I meant Shirt not sh...t. Sorry about that.

Gozde said...

ITA, Burberry Rob for this promo.

Gozde said...

I like the look. You can see what his stylist was aiming at. He has dressed Rob in cutting edge styles for a while now and Rob obviously trusts him. He does all Robs clothes shopping even for casual hobo styles which are also carefully created.

Gozde said...

I know how hard it is to get out from under that throat grip!! Take your time my dear, enjoy the wonderfulf pleasures that we are given by our boy!!! plus, I always know what your are up to and where you are, you are always on my radar remember!!!!.
I make it a point to stop by you every time I see your comments, even if, its just to give you a "like"!!!!!
Love and kisses, your friend Rosie:))))))

Gozde said...

I loved the shirt and the contrast it made with the suit. Like I said before. Fashion favors the bold. I am glad, he is being complimented for his bold choices. Love you flaquito

Gozde said...

Thanx and same to ya :-)
And especially thx for the likes...they make me feel better about myself ..lol

Gozde said...

Dueling avis..terrific!
Mine and MariaUK's used to meet for tennis match. Then she changed..no more tennis for ROB :-(

Gozde said...

I'll bet your painting is beautiful as always, May.

Gozde said...

I think you're great, then again I am bias when it come to you:)

Gozde said...

YES.

Gozde said...

Allright Rd, let me add;
d: found at high-end vintage shop or
e: in grandfather's closet ..(I refuse to put grandmother as we're quite sure our boy is NOT a cross-dresser) :-}

Gozde said...

Aahh, so sweet to me <3

Gozde said...

that too.

Gozde said...

And do you mind me asking how you know this? I wasn't aware he has a every-day-type stylist who chooses all his clothes and dresses him everyday. I thought for the most part he does it himself, although most stars of his caliber have their own stylist/make-up artist/hair-dresser on staff at all times. Rob seems too independent and too much of a regular guy for that. But it would make sense, especially during promos.

Gozde said...

You think that girl in the audience on Kimmel made him self-concience about buttoning-up correctly? What a shame..mis-buttoned Rob was priceless..

Gozde said...

His stylists name is Ryan Hastings. The Hollywood Reporter had an article on stars stylists . Ryan is included. It says Ryan buys Robs clothes including the retro tshirts and Ryan has a connection to Marc Jacobs which Rob wears a lot in his private time.

Gozde said...

:-D

Gozde said...

Thanx much for that info. I didn't have a clue about this. Used to see him shopping in fan pics, second-hand or vintage stores..kinda got the idea he enjoyed that, but probably had to give it up. So do you know does this guy stay with Rob or is he just on call for whenever Rob needs him?

Gozde said...

LMAO!

Gozde said...

HA HA HA, OK, it's a loaner from PopPop Pattinson,then!  

Gozde said...

Ryan has other clients so he is just on call. The article mentioned that Ryan perfected Rob's "hobo" look and shops regularly for him. Makes sense. Rob can't do it himself. Rob' outfits, when he is appearing anywhere with a female partner, like Kristen, Reece or whoever, always matches. Ryan obviously gets the info about what that other star is wearing and matches Rob up with them. There have been some award show clothes that I haven't liked as much.....a bit too "matchy" with Kristen's outfit.

Gozde said...

Ryan fills Robs wardrobe with designer clothes knowing he layers his outfits, so even though it may look like Rob has thrown together items to catch a flight somewhere or go to a friends show, his choices are from a carefully chosen selection. Rob is "big business" now and I don't think his team allows much thats not keeping with his image because they know every pic taken is going to be shown everywhere. His image is important. These random appearances like Saturday night are carefully thought out to improve and "mature" his image since the events of July.

Gozde said...

Thank you so much and I have sent it along with a lot of others I have done recently to Kate who I guess will put them up when it all goes quiet again - if it ever does LOL - but thanks Sonja for your support xx

Gozde said...

Thanks!!!!

Gozde said...

I'm leaning toward the possibility that he had no clean clothes....

Gozde said...

Can you believe it. He is the new face of Dior Fragrance!!!!

Gozde said...

I think the shirt would have been nice if he opened a few buttons.  Little geeky to me all closed up like that. Chest hair always helps.
