Robert Pattinson: Couture Designer

Wants to show at fashion week. Who knew?

Robert Pattinson is way more than just that vampire guy these days. He's also a Dior Homme Fragrance model, a David Cronenberg muse and now, a fashion designer. Not kidding. He told Harper's Bazaar Arabia that he's down to show at Fashion Week some time in the future, although he has his reservations because, as he says "it could be really embarrassing." Well, yeah. The endearing revelation that a teen heart-throb secretly wants to design couture, came when Robert was all like "I kind of want to get more involved in the [fashion] industry, I really like it," he said, adding "I like the speed of it, you can just move so much quicker. I also like designing clothes, it's kind of a new thing that I have started doing."

 
 
And before you could even say "WTF?" he kept going: "It's really embarrassing, I like drawing couture dresses … [showing at fashion week] would be the most random thing ever but I actually really want to do it." Well blow us over with a hand-beaded feather, if that isn't the most endearing and/or confusing quote we've heard all morning. Follow your dreams R-Patz!
