- Robert Pattinson said his biggest fashion faux pas was pairing leather and velvet for the "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" premiere back in 2005.
- "I was wearing leather trousers with these cowboy boots and a velvet jacket. I mean, it literally looked like a kid had gone into a dressing-up box," Pattinson told GQ in a new interview.
- The face of Dior Homme also said that he wasn't overly fashion-conscious during his "Twilight" days as he wore "full-on protective armour, hood up, hat down," to cover himself from the paparazzi.

"I was wearing leather trousers with these cowboy boots and a velvet jacket. I mean, it literally looked like a kid had gone into a dressing-up box," Pattinson said.
Pattinson previously discussed this ill-matched ensemble in an interview with W Magazine in 2018 where he said he went "completely overboard" after being lent those pieces for his second-ever red carpet event.
"I mean, it was insanity. I mean, I was so into it. I remember going around just like slapping my own ass in the shop and stuff. I was really into it," Pattinson said.
The British actor also said he looked "horrendous" on the red carpet two years later when he gate-crashed the "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" premiere.
"My agent still sends them to this day ... I was just pouring with sweat, you can just see the photos I look horrendous," Pattinson told the HFPA In Conversation podcast in November 2019.

Pattinson also told GQ that during his "Twilight" days he wasn't overly fashion-conscious and instead donned hoodies to shield himself from the paparazzi.
"I have so many terror memories of the paparazzi… and I still don full-on protective armour, hood up, hat down," Pattinson said.
While the British actor said he carefully considers his wardrobe choices these days, he still wishes he could pull off some of A$AP Rocky's outfits.
"I wish I could dress like A$AP Rocky, 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 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!'"
