If, like the worldwide fraternity of Twihards, and a sizeable percentage of the ELLE office, you cant get enough of staring at Robert Pattinson, youll be pleased to learn that hes signed a $12m deal to be the (handsome) face of Dior mens fragrances, according to E Online and The Cut.
We have heard that he turned down the chance to pose for Burberry a year back so Dior's persuasive techniques must be finely honed, though Rob does also wear Dior on the red carpet. Whatever the reason, we can't say we're not pleased: hes gorgeous, and as the Twilight films have amply demonstrated already has the perfume ad-friendly staring pensively into the middle distance skills perfected.
We cant wait to see the first shoot.
UPDATED on 31/10/12: Don't start queueing outside a Dior store just yet. The French fashion house's press office said the deal was just a rumour and denied signing any contract with Pattinson, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Today's rumours can turn out to be tomorrow's news, so we'd say watch this space...
