What's Hot Now
Dear Robert Pattinson,
This is your moment to join Instagram.
We mean it. Join it tomorrow, so you can prepare for your first Throwback Thursday upload — which we already found!
The vintage MTV Letterman jacket that you wore to the Beyoncé concert Monday night is the perfect snap to share with the millions of Twi-hards who are waiting for you to join the social media site.
We even have the caption prepared for you: “Reppin’ it old school in my MTV varsity jacket for the @beyonce Mrs. Carter World Tour #IWantMyMTV #tbt” (Queen Bey will appreciate the shoutout)
Seriously, you can’t let this buzzy fashion moment pass you by. Imagine the like potential for a #tbt of this magnitude?
And don’t be discouraged that our readers aren’t a fan of Joe Jonas in his letterman topper. Your vintage style is totally different. Plus, you’re like the hot guy in high school — every girl wants the chance to wear your jacket.

“We are excited to announce that he will join the privileged circle of Dior faces,” the label said in a statement Wednesday. Those Dior faces include Marion Cotillard, Jennifer Lawrence, Mila Kunis and Jude Law among others.
We’re already itching to see what the newly-single actor will look like in his debut ad. (Our money is on a brooding stare, but our guess is as good as yours when it comes to whether he’ll be shirtless or covered up.)
And we have one suggestion for the label: Bring in Pattinson as the sexy leading guy in J.Law’s next Miss Dior campaign. Okay, maybe not, but we can dream right?
Tell us: What do you think of Pattinson as the newest face of Dior?

Robert Pattison and Kristen Stewart had a hotly anticipated red carpet reunion at Monday night’s Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 premiere in L.A. But what was even more interesting than their big photo op were their outfits.
Pattinson selected a green and black micro houndstooth two-button Monaco suit by Gucci for the event, adding a gray dress shirt and black satin tie to the colorful ensemble.
“I had a dream about an emerald-green houndstooth suit,” he told reporters as he walked the carpet. “I got Gucci to make it.” According to Gucci, Pattinson even picked the material himself. (He worked exclusively with the design house on his last film, Cosmopolis, and has worn the brand’s suits several times since.)
For her moment in the spotlight, Stewart chose a corseted nude Zuhair Murad lace and chiffon creation. “I like this thing,” she told reporters. “I feel alright.”
It was more than nude in color, though: from both the front and back you could see through to Stewart’s slim legs and, uh, rear end (see below).
E! News is reporting that actor has been named the new face of Christian Dior men’s fragrances, though the fashion house has yet to confirm the news. Current Dior fragrance faces include Natalie Portman and Charlize Theron.
Pattinson’s three-year deal with the French brand is rumored to be worth about $12 million — $5 million more than Brad Pitt‘s estimated payday for his Chanel No. 5 campaign. Now let’s hope that Pattinson’s commercials will be a little more, uh, normal than Pitt’s.
Update: A representative for Dior tells The Hollywood Reporter that the brand hasn’t signed a deal with Pattinson … yet. That doesn’t mean a contract isn’t in the works, though. Either way, we want to hear your thoughts, so, tell us: Do you think Pattinson is a good fit for a fragrance deal?
