Robert Pattinson considers his outfit for the London premiere of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire in 2005 to be one of his worst fashion choices.

The Twilight star shot to fame playing Cedric Diggory, his first major movie role, in the fourth instalment of the Harry Potter movie franchise, and attended the premiere in Leicester Square wearing black leather trousers, a white shirt, a red velvet blazer, and dark red shoes.

In an interview with British GQ, Pattinson revealed he cringes at a lot of his old red carpet looks, but his ensemble for the premiere really stands out.

“I was wearing leather trousers with these cowboy boots and a velvet jacket,” he recalled. “I mean, it literally looked like a kid had gone into a dressing-up box.”

Pattinson’s sense of style has improved over the years and he credits fashion experts for making him look red carpet ready.

“If I was choosing to wear clothes myself, I don’t think I would have gone in a lot (of) the directions that I have ended up going in with Dior and people like Kim Jones,” the 33-year-old added, referring to the creative director of Dior Homme. “I never would have thought I would be wearing chiffon, silk, and satin. I wore this tuxedo, which had basketball shorts last year – never would have imagined that!”

Even though he has become more experimental with his style, the British actor, who is the face of the luxury brand’s current fragrance campaign, is well aware there are certain pieces he can’t pull off.

“I wish I could dress like A$AP Rocky,” he gushed. “He just has serious style. We have been to quite a few different fittings together and I will see the craziest thing and really want to wear it, but I’d look like a total moron. Then we will go to the show and I will see Rocky in it and be like, ‘Jesus Christ, you can literally wear anything!'”

Millie Bobby Brown has won an award from officials at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) for her vegan-friendly beauty line.

The Stranger Things actress unveiled her Florence by Mills collection earlier this year, with the range of skincare and make-up products aimed at teenagers and young people.

All products, including the Zero Chill Face Mist, Swimming Under the Eye Gel Pads, and Like a Light Skin Tint, are cruelty-free and Vegan Action certified, and now, Millie has been awarded one of PETA’s Libby Awards in recognition of her advocacy of animal rights.

“Brown’s skincare and make-up line, Florence by Mills – whose products contain no animal ingredients and are never tested on animals – earned her the award for Best Side Hustle for Animals,” a PETA representative commented.

In addition, singer Billie Eilish was presented with the Best Voice for Animals award for her promotion of a vegan lifestyle and for posting about instances of animal cruelty on her Instagram page, and Fuller House actor Juan Pablo Di Pace was named as the Brightest Onscreen Star for Animals after he starred in a PETA campaign urging people to avoid circus performances involving animals.

“Billie Eilish, Millie Bobby Brown, and Juan Pablo Di Pace are showing the world how easy it is to help animals by making kind choices in what we eat, what we wear, and how we entertain ourselves,” added PETA senior director of youth programmes, Marta Holmberg. “PETA is recognising them for using their star power to make the world a better place for all species.”

Other 2019 nominees included vegan musicians A$AP Rocky and sisters Chloe and Halle Bailey, as well as Hollywood stars Ruby Rose, Kat Graham, and Harley Quinn Smith.

A$AP Rocky wants to redefine masculinity with his new unisex streetwear collection.

The rapper and his creative collective AWGE have found their first permanent retail home in London’s Selfridges department store and have designed 40 new pieces to celebrate its official opening this week.

The collection includes T-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, babushka headscarves, a collaboration with Japanese brand Needles, and a hand-stitched A$AP Rocky doll.

Speaking to Vogue, the rapper explained that he wanted his new collection to blur the gender lines.

“I do things that really are appropriate for women: grandma babushkas, painting your nails,” he said. “I do what the f**k I want. It’s just like hey, you know? There are no boundaries. The reason everything is oversized is because I love that look: when girls wear oversized stuff, I think it looks sexy, that subversive unisex look and s**t.”

The outlet, which has been two years in the making, also includes a 3D miniature recreation of A$AP’s hometown of Harlem, New York, complete with barber shops, record stores, traffic lights and yellow taxis.

Prices range from $123 (£100) for select T-shirts to $381 (£309) for the knitted doll.

Back in 2017, A$AP and AWGE launched a pop-up store in the basement of Selfridges which sold unusual items including special edition Krispy Kreme doughnuts, an AWGE DVD, and an energy drink.

Bosse Myhr, Selfridges director of menswear, said in a press release that they were “so excited” to bring the rapper on board, while buying and merchandising director Sebastian Manes added that the 31-year-old was part of the Selfridges family.

“A$AP Rocky brings creative energy and vision to everything he does. He has been an amazing collaborator over the years,” he shared.

A$AP Rocky opens up about sex in Calvin Klein’s new #MyTruth campaign

A$AP Rocky speaks his truth about sex in Calvin Klein’s new #MyTruth campaign.

Recruiting an A-list line-up of music stars, actors and models for the new advertising push, the all-American brand has asked its latest campaign stars to share their truth in videos shot by Jonas Lindstroem.

In his clip, A$AP is surrounded by flames as he tells the camera: “Growing up in New York City, I live life on the edge. So when it comes to sex, it ain’t no different than the streets. Keep that s**t hot baby.”

In a second video he simply states: “A$AP. A$AP. You ask my truth in two words, well that’s easy. A$AP Rocky.”

The 30-year-old rapper has been a part of the Calvin Klein family since late 2017. Other stars to join him in the newest campaign include Billie Eilish, Troye Sivan, Shawn Mendes, Noah Centineo, Indya Moore, Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid.

In a behind-the-scenes video from the shoot, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before star Noah explained what truth means to him.

“Sometime, the greatest thing standing in our way, is our reflection,” the 23-year-old said. “I feel like truth is… when I was really young, we were driving the car going to Disney, and my dad he said something that I take with me to this day, it’s that truth is relative. And even science, we create these new laws, we find these new laws, but then they get disproven the following year or the year after that

“So what is truth? It’s a great question, I don’t think I can really answer it; it’s a very personal thing. I think truth is presence, being in a moment with someone. I think truth is standing up for what you believe in.”

For music’s hottest new star Billie, 17, she says she sometimes finds it “way easier” to share through music, while 20-year-old Shawn summed truth up as “a 24/7 daily thing that’s always changing”.

Rapper A$AP Rocky turned a massive gash on his face into fashion inspiration by concealing the injury with a babushka.

The New York City native adopted the Russian headscarf on the red carpet for the The LACMA 2018 Art and Film Gala in November (18) and style critics went wild for the look, but the naturally chic hip hop star insists the accessory was born out of necessity.

“It was inspired by a situation I had where my face got cut, and I started walking around with a babushka to cover it,” he tells GQ magazine. “It was about last September (when I first started wearing them). It started with a yellow one when I was on Trevor Noah’s show (The Daily Show). I actually did a Vogue (magazine) shoot the day after I got my face slashed.”

“Honestly, it was inspired by (Little Rascals character) Alfalfa – you ever see the (TV show) Little Rascals, when he pretended to have a toothache? I kind of wanted to make it look like that. Basically on some s**t so in case Trevor Noah asked me, I was just gonna be like, ‘I have a toothache.'”

The handsome star’s face was scraped up when he took a nasty tumble in a scooter accident.

“I was riding a Razor scooter, I did a pop up wheelie and just ate s**t and I just had a f**king big gash on my face,” the Goldie hitmaker shared, revealing the injury was so bad he went under the knife to fix it.

“(I) had to get plastic surgery and here we are,” Rocky adds.

A$AP Rocky was mocked for his fashion sense as a youngster

A$AP Rocky’s love of fashion left some people questioning his sexuality when he was growing up.

The rapper has been dominating the music charts since he released his debut record Long. Live. ASAP in 2013, but his style has also been the subject of a lot of the conversation surrounding the 30-year-old.

His passion for looking good is nothing new though, and he was rocking designer threads long before fame came calling.

“When I got locked up, I had Prada on. That’s real talk,” he recounted to Esquire of his short stint in Rikers Island prison in 2004. “We used to share clothes, like poor kids, but it was nice s**t – Prada, True Religion, Paper Denim jeans and s**t. The ‘hood dudes thought I was gay, but their girls loved it.”

He added that sometimes he’d get into fights with those who mocked him, but ultimately, he brushed off their comments.

“Matter of fact, it brought me closer to gay people because I understood their plight,” he continued. “I was judged by other black men, and they questioned my masculinity and my sexuality.”

And now, thanks to his superstardom, A$AP is adamant those same “hood dudes” want to dress just like he does.

While style remains an important aspect of the Fashion Killa hitmaker’s life, and he dabbles with design work, he is fully concentrating on music right now.

“But I’ve been secret consulting with brands for years. I’m responsible for so many trends,” he shrugged. “OK, I’m-a tell you something. AWGE (his creative agency) is the reason people are wearing Guess today. You see the striped (T-shirts) that they used to do? The monogram logo? I’m the reason Guess is throbbing hard right now. I mean honestly, I don’t even want to say it but… I don’t do fashion. I am fashion.”
