Burberry So! Some of you may remember a post I wrote a few months ago, revealing my hypothesis that the folks behind Burberry have a little obsession with the Twilight book series.

In fact, I wrote Burberry's fall 2010 ad campaign was actually far closer to what I imagined the Cullens would look like than the actors from the movie series -- and many of you agreed with me.

Well, now a little rumor straight from London seems to be proving my guess right ...

According to Vogue UK, which got it from London's Mirror newspaper, Rob Pattinson was approached to be the new face of the Burberry label ...

... but he turned it down to focus on his acting career!

I KNEW IT. Burberry's ad campaign was totally inspired by Twilight!! I KNEW IT I KNEW IT I KNEW IT HAAHHAHAHHDLFJEDKFAHHAHAHAHA.

Okay, so a third-hand rumor isn't exactly conclusive proof, but it's good enough for me!

Also? Rob Pattinson totes should have taken the job. He would have been perfect for Burberry's ads, and it could only have helped his career.

What do you think? Does this make up your mind about the Burberry/Twilight connection? And would you have liked to see Rob in Burberry's next set of ads?
