Robert Pattinson fans, be warned.
The actor/vampire heartthrob is officially—how do you say?—whipped. At the after-party for his girlfriend FKA twigs’ concert during Art Basel, the London native would not (could not?) keep his hands off the tiny dancer, who first gained fame performing with Jesse J. (Yes, that’s her in the “Do It Like a Dude” video.)
“All I want to do tonight is dance,” laughed the R&B phenomenon, who was born Tahliah Debrett Barnett. (She also managed to sneak in a few not-so-private make out sessions with Edward Cullen.) “Not rest; dance.”
Fortunately, she had some good company—a trio of French streetwear legends, Pigalle, Pompon, and Pain O’Chokolat, who created a special “Muzik Mansion” just for Basel week. In honor of their special guest, they stocked the house with food made by the rising chefs at Ghetto Gastro and “curated” by Ms. twigs herself. (The offerings: a savory caviar-cornbread mashup, fried chicken with kale and almond salad, and a coconut milk dessert served in long white lines on mirrored plates—a safe-for-work take on cocaine.)
But true to her “twig” nickname, it’s clear the musician is one of those girls who eats everything—even fried chicken—and still stays tiny. “I bring as many clothes as possible on tour,” she told us about her amazing fashion stash, “And then my stylist [Karen Clarkson] takes them in… a lot!”
Does she have a favorite? “I like this one,” she said, patting down her skintight denim jumper. “Anyway, it’s nice to meet you. I really did mean I only want to dance tonight. That means no talking!”
Hey, if we were kissing R-Patz all night, we wouldn’t want to talk to anyone, either.
