Robert Pattinson to feature as the new face of Dior Homme fragrances

26-year-old Pattinson will feature in a print and film advertising campaign for the famous label

Certain details remain unclear but American news site E! News has announced that Robert Pattinson will feature as the latest face of Dior Homme fragrances in a new advertising campaign reported to be worth $12 million.

According to sources close to the star, Pattinson has signed a deal to front the Dior Homme fragrances for the Paris luxury brand. Twenty-six-year-old Pattinson will feature in a print and film advertising campaign for the famous label, which was established by designer Christian Dior in 1946. The star of the Twilight saga is already reportedly worth $64 million, according to a Sunday Times estimate in April 2012.

Does this mean that current face of the brand, Jude Law, is out of a job? Details are unclear, and as yet there has been no official statement from Dior, which has not responded to requests for comment.

Other faces of the brand include Best Actress Oscar-winning trio Marion Cotillard, Charlize Theron, and Natalie Portman, who have recently promoted perfume and bags under the Dior banner.

Born in London in 1986, Robert Pattinson first starred in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire before hitting global success with his role as Edward in the teen vampire thrillers of the Twilight saga, alongside current girlfriend Kristen Stewart. The films have grossed over $2 billion around the world. Stewart is also no stranger to the world of fashion and luxury fragrances: she already features as the face of Parisian label Balenciaga's Florabotanica perfume.  - AFP RELAX NEWS
