Rob's "Heaven Scent": Harper's Bazaar editor keeps leather Rob's jacket (shoot 2009)

Leather can be such a chore to clean, but that’s not why Harper’s Bazaar accessories editor David Thielebeule hasn’t dropped his new Dior Homme bomber jacket off at the dry cleaners. Thielebeule snagged the jacket after Twilight star Robert Pattinson wore it for a shoot in the magazine’s December 2009 issue. Since then, he’s barely taken it off his back. Thielebeule declined to comment, but our spies hear that the fashion staffer does, occasionally, remove it to allow a friend to smell the lining and take in a little Eau de Pattinson. After getting a whiff ourselves at a fashion party a few weeks back, we’d describe it as a delightful mix of leather and coffee beans. And according to a Dior spokesman, after Pattinson appeared in Bazaar, “demand became very high” for the jacket. The standard version retails for $3,460, but the one that R-Patz wore? Not for sale and pretty priceless.
