Robert Pattinson Gets His Own Karl Lagerfeld Photoshoot for Dior (Following in the Footsteps of His A-list Ex)

02/25/2016 at 12:11 PM ET

Who knew Karl Lagerfeld was such a die-hard Twilight fan? Okay, he may not have publicly pronounced his love of the series, but from his latest photography muses, we have reason to be a little suspicious. The film’s central couple (and real-life exes), Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson, serve as the faces of two of the most storied French fashion houses, Chanel and Dior respectively. And thanks to Pattinson’s new extension of his Dior contact, both have had the honor of being photographed by Lagerfeld for their brand’s ad campaigns.

Pattinson was recently named the new face of Dior Homme’s Ready-to-Wear collection, which marks the first time the brand has used a Hollywood star to front the line. It’s no surprise they made an exception for Pattinson, seeing as his Dior Homme fragrance ads were a major, smoldering hit.

For his first photoshoot as the face of their clothing line, Dior Homme tapped Lagerfeld (the creative director of Chanel and Fendi) to work behind the lens. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen designers support competitive labels (last year Donatella Versace modeled in Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci’s Fall 2015 campaign) but it does show an interesting bridge between two of Paris’s most notable brands.

According to WWD, when the chief executive officer of Christian Dior Couture, Sidney Toledano, told Pattinson he’d be working with Lagerfeld, he “was even more enthusiastic” about the campaign.

Another star who loves working with Lagerfeld? Ex-girlfriend, Stewart who’s portrayed Coco Chanel in a short film and starred in the brand’s makeup and eyewear campaigns (among others).

The actress only had complimentary things to say about working with Lagerfeld, telling PEOPLE in 2014, “He’s an impressive guy. He definitely is so much more than the glasses and the hair than you might think he is.”

Oh, eff off with this clickbait, People.

Enjoy the dozens of KStew fans who’ll be coming over here to hate on the ex who dared to leave her after being cheated on multiple times.

Following in the Footsteps of His A-list Ex? The ex got him the job?

Shalia on

Lmao wtf?! Dior is clearly happy with the results of Pattinson’s Dior Homme so they wanted him for something new.
They did the same with JenLaw..
Remove your Kstew fan glasses please.

Both are equally beautiful.

Well, People mag obviously thinks he follows whatever his ex does and lets everyone know…

Enough with the comparisons People. Rob is his own man and doesn’t need to be linked to his ex for click bait. It might interest you to know the majority of Rob fans find it offensive he is still being linked to the girl who cheated on his with a married man. Move on, we have.

No need to compare Rob’s ad is way better!

I don’t like the earring.
