Robert Pattinson dons turtle neck and neon pink trousers
It’s been pioneered by the likes of Jaden Smith, who wore a skirt for a 2016 Louis Vuitton advert.
And Robert Pattinson, 31, has embraced fluid dressing for his latest shoot with W Magazine.
The British actor, who flew to fame in hit series Twilight, appears on their cover in a fluorescent ensemble, discussing his latest film- during which he went undercover in a carwash without being noticed.
Pulling it off: Robert Pattinson, 31, has embraced fluid dressing for his latest shoot, clad in a skin-tight orange turtleneck and pink bottoms
Clad in a skin-tight orange turtleneck and pink bottoms, he opened up about about his recently released arty film Good Times, revealing he came to New York a few months in advance to practice his accent- even working in a car wash without being recognised.
‘Me and (co-star) Benny Safdie, we went out a few times in character. Like we got jobs at a car wash,’ he admitted.
‘Just for a day until Benny started pulling off people’s windscreen wipers and stuff, and we were like, it’s actually committing crimes. But we spent a few days in character and we spent a whole day in Yonkers, just kind of talking to this guy in a, in a mechanic’s [shop].
‘So that was fun. I’ve never done anything like it, where you just kind of full-on go in character, to spend an entire day in character. We did it a few times.

And Robert embraced a whole new style of filming, shooting in public spaces and without a script.
‘We were like shooting on the subway. And we were stealing so many shots. Like shooting on a packed subway at rush hour and we’re shooting on 36 millimeter cameras as well with big lenses.’ he said.
‘And no one really recognized it. No one could really tell. I was just getting directed by text message. It was pretty great, though.’
Always offering the unexpected, Robert also revealed his unusual karaoke song, citing the ‘Interlude on the Twelve Play-2 by R. Kelly’, as he shares the same name with the song.
The actor has long explored breaking boundaries, telling CBS Sunday Morning just weeks ago that he enjoys ‘break the walls of the box around you’.
‘It’s just exciting to have a job where you’re allowed to consistently break the walls of the box around you,’ he told Michelle Miller.
”The only thing that being famous really helps in is getting financing for your movies,’ he’s maintained that these days ‘the movies I do are weird and they don’t make a lot of money a lot of the time.’
He’s also shared with Michelle that ‘I always think that at some point karma is like: “Oh, that’s all your luck run out, so a whole bunch of bad stuff’s gonna happen!”‘
Robert kick-started his career as Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire, followed by a five-film run co-leading the Twilight Saga opposite Kristen Stewart, before recently branching out into smaller Independent films.
