Robert PattinsonAll summer long people have been talking about Robert Pattinson's Dior ad. Are they sitting around rapturously discussing the fashion powerhouse? No, of course not. Why do that when you can speculate about the fantasy relationship Pattinson might have with the campaign's costar, model Camille Rowe?

Confession: I maybe first misread the pairing as being "Rob and Camilla" and did a double-take thinking someone was spreading rumors about Pattinson and the Prince of Wales' wife. Thankfully, that is not the case. The blonde in question is not the much-older royal, but a spunky young thing who's got scads of chemistry with Rob -- in front of the camera and behind it, if you believe the buzz.

Kristen Stewart, are you reading this?

Yes, the duo smooched big time during the campaign. They also did more racy stuff like blow cigarette smoke into each other's mouths and frolic in a pool.

But the real story isn't high fashion's idea of sexiness, it's about how well Camille and Rob got along behind the scenes.

The couple were apparently very comfortable with each other, which might be telling since the shoot is coming not long after Rob split with Kristen. Though no one's come forward to proclaim Rob and Camille a couple, given their cozy, laid-back interactions, it wouldn't be a surprise to anyone if they did hook up, would it? Plus, Rob really liked that Camille wasn't thrown by his star status. It's got to be a very welcome change.

Then again, every time Rob is spotted with a new "mystery" woman -- any woman whatsoever -- he is linked to her romantically, to the point where it's just getting silly. This could very well be more of the same.

Either way, it has to pain Kristen that her ex is getting along so well and has such smoldering chemistry -- on- and off-screen -- with another girl, a blond supermodel who looks nothing like her, no less. Ouch.

Do you think Rob and Camille are the real deal?
