The ‘Twilight Saga’ heartthrob likes the Italian fashion house to dress him
for his public appearances and relies upon emergency last minute fashion
advice from the brand’s creative director, Frida Giannini.
Robert told the British edition of GQ magazine: “She taught me one thing -
you should definitely have good contacts at Gucci. They’re absolutely
amazing. The amount of times I’ve been stuck in some random city and have
called her up and had things brought in at absolutely the last minute – it’s
“You can do quite crazy things [with colour] if you have incredibly classic,
really well-made suits. I guess I’ve been quite boring for a while. I used
to be more interesting with them. Now I always just request things two days
before: ‘Can you send 25 suits?’ I don’t even know what I want to wear!”
Robert – who is dating Kristen Stewart – was kitted out in a custom-made
Gucci suit for his film role in David Cronenberg’s ‘Cosmopolis’.
He plays a billionaire who embarks upon an obstacle-ridden journey across
Manhattan, so his wardrobe had to fit the part. Frida said earlier this year: “We are so pleased to work with Robert on ’Cosmopolis’ and to create an effortless and classic style for his character.”
