6. Rob Pattinson Pattinson’s year was spent crisscrossing the globe in promotion of three flicks, giving the actor plenty of opportunities to break out his preferred Gucci suits, which he did in rapid, colorfulsuccession. But it’s not just tonal suit and shirt pairings the now former vampire got right; his grunge 2.0 getups have us wondering how much flannel we’ll see on the Fall ’13 runways.

Do you think Eric Packer is the most stylish character you’ve ever created?
Actually, I think Dr Jung in A Dangerous Method was pretty darn stylish. There is a contemporary quality to Eric that is certainly timely and cutting-edge in that sense. On the other hand, he’s a guy who, like a lot of the financiers that we read about now, the “London Whale” being one of them, really want to be anonymous. They don’t want to cut a great figure in the public eye. Part of their power as investors is anonymity and so although Eric Packer does have a bodyguard in this movie, the bodyguard is there to protect his life, not keep the fans away.
What’s been your worst date?
I never really dated. The thing is I’ve been married for about 37 years and it’s kind of a strange thing because I’ve never done this tradition of dating and pick-up lines. Somebody in Berlin said, “What’s the worst pickup line you’ve ever heard?” I said, “I’ve never given one, at least not consciously”. Rob said his answer for that is “I would look good in your clothes”. I thought that was a pretty good one.

GQ&A: Robert Pattinson on hip-hop, sex scenes and why everyone needs to wear Gucci
Within moments of meeting Robert Pattinson, GQ.com learns a valuable lesson: you simply can’t compete with Twilight fans. Having previously expressed his admiration for Martin Amis in an interview, it was decided we should present everyone’s favourite server-crashing undead heartthrob with a copy of the new Amis novel Lionel Asbo. Sadly one literary-minded Edward Cullen devotee has trumped our gift. “I got given a first-edition signed copy of Money by a Twilight fan in Germany yesterday,” reveals Pattinson. “She was trying to tell me that she found it in Massachusetts while we were surrounded by all these people screaming.” Pattinson stars in David Cronenberg’s striking and strange new film Cosmopolis, out this week, which sees him as an otherworldly billionaire sating his carnal, financial and intellectual desires riding through town in the back of a limousine in search of a haircut. After some preliminaries (when presented with the latest edition of GQ he cries out ”Andrew’s wearing my suit!“), he talks about his hip-hop moment of glory, the worst haircut he’s ever had and what he’s learned from working with Frida Giannini at Gucci…
Robert Pattinson voted ‘Best dressed man of the year’ by GQ readers
1. Robert Pattinson
(Last year No.1) The artist occasionally known as Edward Cullen hasn’t put a foot wrong on the red carpet, wearing Gucci to his last three Twilightfilm premieres, as well as at the launch of a certain pachyderm based circus drama. Most impressively, he avoided a stake through the heart from the masses of boy-band fans by securing 27 per cent of the vote.

12. Robert Pattinson
Pattinson is one of those rare mythical creatures who can swipe looks straight from the runway—everything from a burgundy Gucci suit to a fancy baseball jacket from Dries van Noten—without a hitch. Of course, he’s also a pro at the rolled-out-of-bed thing. He lurks around on off-days in leather jackets, ripped jeans, and hoodies pulled down so far they hide the remnants of his shorn power-mane.—A.R.
