Robert Pattinson confirmed as the new face of Dior HommeOne of fashion’s worst-kept secrets has finally been confirmed by French luxury house Christian Dior. 

Hollywood heartthrob Robert Pattinson has been named as the latest face of Dior Homme fragrance. The 27-year-old British actor will star in a new campaign for the brand set to hit magazines and TVs soon.

“Today we are excited to announce that he will join the privileged circle of Dior faces. Photographed by American artist Nan Goldin and filmed by French director Romain Gavras, this new Dior Homme communication campaign is currently broadcast exclusively in Europe (except UK) and Asia (except China and Japan),” said Dior in a statement picked up by the Telegraph today. 

The rumors of the collaboration first emerged in October last year, with sources close to the star reporting that he had signed a $12 million contract to replace fellow actor Jude Law as the face of the fragrance.
