Luxury brand Dior has already released Robert Pattinson's first Dior Homme ad and new previews showing Rob kissing a blonde were shown in Stockholm earlier this week. The steamy new scenes show Rob dressed in a crisp suit seductively kissing his campaign co-star. The commercial for Rob's campaign will be broadcast only in Europe and Asia, so Australian fans will have to hunt for a version of the ad online once it is released.
Winged eyeliner is a classically cool beauty look. Whether it's a dramatic '60s flick or a subtle sex kitten wing, there's a way for everyone to wear it. We thought we'd scope the shelves for the insider's trick to nailing liquid liner: precision pen-style products. There's one in here to suit every budget!
John Galliano's hotly anticipated interview with Charlie Rose was broadcast in the States on Wednesday night, and in clips from the hour-long chat, the former Dior designer makes a number of very sobering comments. In the interview, Galliano discusses everything from the suicide of Lee McQueen, which he said he "understood," to his own struggles with addiction and substance abuse. He also apologised for the anti-Semitic remarks he made in March 2011 that led to his dismissal from Dior, and to his eventual stint in rehab, but maintains that he's grateful for the way these events have unfolded. "I have been able to spend some time on myself and understand these emotions that I couldn't express," he said. "This was all bottled up, really, and later on in life, in that state that I found myself in, it came up. I was emotionally, spiritually, physically, mentally bankrupt. I didn't know it, but I had a very big breakdown." The revealing interview joins a profile of the designer in next month's issue of Vanity Fair. A look at the interview, here in the gallery.
Robert Pattinson has just been named the new face of Dior's fragrance for men, Dior Homme. The Twilight heartthrob isn't the first celebrity to lend his face to Christian Dior. Robert joins a celebrated list of names, including Jude Law, Alain Delon, Natalie Portman, and Charlize Theron. Campaigns have already reportedly been shot by photographer Nan Goldin and director Romain Gavras, but no release date has been confirmed yet. Unfortunately, the television campaign will run exclusively in Europe, with the exception of the UK, and Asia, excluding Japan and China.
After months of speculation and rumours, Robert Pattinson has been confirmed as the new face of Dior Homme. The luxury fashion house released a statement announcing Rob's new role and confirming that a television ad will run exclusively in Europe (except in the UK) and Asia (except for China and Japan). The print campaign was photographed by Nan Goldin and the TV spot was filmed by Romain Gavras. No further details about the campaign have been revealed, but Rob is in good company at Dior — Jude Law, Charlize Theron and Natalie Portman have all worked for the brand's various fragrance campaigns.
Aside from his first fragrance foray, Rob has been keeping busy with several new film projects. He wrapped up filming for The Rover, which is slated to hit cinemas later this year, and he is expected to start work on at least two new movies, including Map of the Stars and Queen of the Desert. Robert has also been finding time to relax. He recently hooked up with friend Katy Perry for a Björk concert in Hollywood.
Although the sky's the limit in country music fashion — a world that bred Dolly Parton and gospel like, "The higher the heel, the closer to God" — the red carpet at yesterday's CMT Music Awards felt relatively tame (with a few exceptions). Country wife Nicole Kidman showed off a demure Dior dress, accented with sculpted heels, Taylor Swift opted for subdued sparkle in an Elie Saab sheath, while the industry's reigning queen, Carrie Underwood, skipped a gown in favour of a teal, sparkled shorts suit from Editions by Georges Chakra's Spring '13 collection.

Yesterday at the US Internship premiere, Jessica Szohr and Rose Byrne both wowed the crowd with sultry makeup looks. Jessica went with a sexy smoky eye, while Rose went with a lighter look that still smoldered. Find out the products and techniques used to create both red carpet looks.
Jessica Szohr played up her eyes with a subtle smoky eye. Her makeup artist Mai Quynh started by applying Shiseido Shimmering Cream Eye Shadow ($44) in Caviar (an inky hue) all over lids up to the crease. "I like to start with the eye makeup because I can clean up any fallen shadow on her bare skin," Quynh said. Then, she used a mix of the black and brown shades from the Femme Fatale Dolce & Gabbana Eye Shadow Quad in Jessica's crease. A touch of the black shade was also used underneath the eyes.
Finally, Quynh lined the entire eye with Becca Automatic Eye Pencil ($42) and swiped on two coats of Diorshow Black Out Mascara ($52). This smoky eye is a look that won't overwhelm the beginner, and it's subtle enough to wear to an afternoon party. Make sure to balance the look with a soft lip like Jessica's Nars Satin Lipstick ($39) in Tolède.
Rose Byrne went with a lighter look that still had a touch of edge. "Rose's dress was so sophisticated yet sweet, so I wanted the makeup to be a little bit on the tougher side," said her makeup artist Monika Blunder. "My inspiration was Kate Moss — a rimmed black eye to create a smudgy, smoldering look." Her eyes were shaded with Chanel Quadra Eye Shadow in Premier Regard ($98).
Blunder applied the bronze shade to the lid first, then used the shimmering black hue on the outer corners and crease. She defined the eyes with liner, and three coats of mascara completed the eye makeup. Blunder complemented the dramatic eyes with peachy cheeks using a Chanel Powder Blush called In Love ($86). The last touch was a nude lipstick, Rouge Allure Lip Colour in Gracile ($50).
