Dior has released a new photo from Robert Pattinson’s first campaign for the Homme fragrance. I know nothing about photography so is this…composition? Like one third is all dark, and the other third (the subway tile) is in shade, leaving the centre third the focal point – his beautiful face and beguiling smile? Or is the star of this photo meant to be his hand?
Pattinson is gazing adoringly at the face of a model off-camera, an image meant to suggest intimacy as her bare legs lounge suggestively on top of the tub, as he sits in it…fully clothed. It’s not supposed to make sense. It’s just supposed to make him look sexy. And he does. He really does. I like his expression here. It reaches his eyes. Like, I believe that he’s into whoever it is that he’s looking at. Good acting? Or not acting?
