Nothing like a bit of Robert Pattinson news to perk us right up. And right now, being on the East Coast, we’ll take any bits of perking up we can get and be grateful for it! We’ve been waiting for Rob to make some inroads into fashion, just like back-on girlfriend Kristen Stewart did with Balenciaga, and he’s finally allowed a brand to convince him to sign on. He’s now part of the Dior Homme family and has sealed the deal on a three-year contract to endorse their fragrances because, as a source told E!, “Rob likes the brand.” Liking the brand’s always good, but how but an extra $12 million dollar incentive? That’s the approximate amount of money Dior has offered Robert for being their face. Kristen’s also endorsing perfume for Balenciaga, BTW, so both their first high-fashion ventures have been in the fragrance world. How matchy-matchy of them! Now all we have to do is sit around wait for his commercials to air. We’re hoping they will be more the Alexander Skarsgard for Calvin Klein side of the fence rather than the Brad Pitt for Chanel end. No offence, Brad — who looked super classy in the Chanel spots — but we want some Skarsgard steam for Robert’s spots. Shirtless would be good too. No pressure, Dior!
