Harmony Korine, the auteur behind Spring Breakers and Kids, directed Dior's latest fragrance ad. The commercial features a model wandering around a decked-out mansion before stumbling across a secret garden where a heavily remixed version of Die Antwoord's "Enter the Ninja" drops in. The last time Korine was tapped to direct a fashion film was 2011, for Proenza Schouler. It was widely panned.

Korine's films tackle issues like poverty, mental illness, and dysfunctional families. He isn't a traditional filmmaker: His work is non-linear, experimental, and surrealist with elements of Vaudevillian minstrelsy, dark humor, and absurdism. In other words, he's never been one for mainstreamers, so it's interesting to see him so restrained. In honor of Harmony Korine, here's a roundup of other outlandish fashion films. This one's for the weirdos. Mazel.

JULIETTE LEWIS & DAFT PUNK X GAP

Let's start off simple. In 2001, when the only songs by French robotic duo Daft Punk on your radar was the house favorite "One More Time" or the meme bait "Harder Better Faster Stronger", they were tapped by Gap along with Juliette Lewis to shill jeans. Oh 2001, what a year to be alive.

So moisturized.

There are few things that can ~truly~ alter a person's life: moving to a new city, finding love, getting a great job. But when you're a world-famous movie star with a face that launched a million fangirls, discovering a great moisturizer can be pretty life-changing, too. At least that's what Robert Pattinson claims in a new interview with The Wall Street Journal. All's been relatively quiet on the R. Patz front since the release of his full-length Dior Homme ad in September, but the Twilight heartthrob says his beauty regime has come a long way in recent months.

Um. Is it hot in here or is it just me? The LOOONG-awaited Robert Pattinson x Dior Homme fragrance ad video has finally arrived in full and IT. IS. STEAMY! We’re talkin’, like, hand-on-a-foggy-car-window-aboard-the-Titanic steamy. But with less dying in the end. Directed by Romain Gavras and set in black and white to Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love,” (which screams “sexy” on its own), R. Patz and model Camille Rowe get into all kinds of naughty trouble in the 2-minute short film, abiding by the campaign’s recently revealed manifesto:

“Life is short, break the rules (they were made to be broken).” – James Dean

Well, well, well. Look who decided to loosen up his buttons. Was that so hard, R. Patz? After 3 months of pensive stares, roof-top sitting and fully-clothed bathing, Dior has officially let Robert Pattinson's sparkly vampire chest out of its constrictive (albeit well-constructed) shirt-cage. It's not everything we hoped and dreamed for, but darn it, it's something. And we'll take it.

New York 2013: Yup, looks about right. Robert Pattinson, Dior and the Chrysler Building are all still here.

FINALLY! Well, sort of. This summer, Dior has made an art out of the science of stretching things out. Every time the French fashion house released another still from their hotly-anticipated Dior Homme fragrance campaign with Robert Pattinson, it felt like our days got a little longer and our hearts sank a little deeper. WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?! (Other than serving as a constant reminder that R. Patz is definitely still the sparkliest of all former vampires.) IS HE EVER GOING TO TAKE HIS SHIRT OFF?! (Because we need to re-confirm the sparkle, natch.)

Robert Pattinson Dior

Another day, another Robert Pattinson Dior Homme photo! I mean, we're totally not complaining, but it feels like Dior has been rolling out RPattz's debut fragrance campaign oh-so-slowly all summer long—we're just DYING to see the full thing already! Also, a commercial would be nice too. :) So far, we've seen Robert looking 'dorbs in a bathtub and snuggling with a lady in bed, but in his latest image, the Twilight star is perched on a rooftop decked out in THE finest duds. He sports a slim-cut black suit with a crisp white shirt and out-of-this-world sunnies.

The summer of 2013 has been good to us, y'all. Ever since Robert Pattinson was named the new face of Dior Homme (after they originally denied it! *shakes fist*) in June, the French fashion house has been oh-so-slowly releasing pics from his upcoming campaign. We first peeped a solemn black and white image of RPattz in a ribbed crewneck sweater and some sultry shots of him between the sheets (with a lady friend, nonetheless!) but just this week, Dior released yet another sneak peek photo, which features the Twilight star relaxing.... inside a bath tub? YUP.

Jared Leto Bullett Magazine

Dang, Jared Leto has been killing it as of late. Between his cotton candy pink-colored bob on the cover of Candy and his high-fashion spread for Mr. Porter, the 30 Seconds to Mars frontman is constantly surprising us with his transformative (and inspiring!) style. Today, he added another magazine to his ever-growing collection by doing a super artsy shoot with BULLETT, and we're—GULP—loving it a bit too much. Basically, Jared is juxtaposed against some seriously '80s backgrounds including spray-painted drywall, a hot pink, photo-covered tarp and, um, garbage bags? Yeah, garbage bags. In his first look, we peep Jared rocking his signature stubble and baby bun in a graphic black and white John Galliano blazer and matching shirt. In another shot, he gets little kookier in a Muppet-inspired (à la Rihanna?) fuzzy teal Paul Smith sweater with a silver Siki Im apron (!!!), Dior Homme shirt, white Calvin Klein trousers, Jared's own checkered socks and metallic Comme des Garçons oxfords.

In case you're wondering, we're STILL freaking out over Robert Pattinson being named new face of Dior Homme yesterday. But, today we were hit with even more, fashion-y RPattz goodness—Dior tweeted the first official photo from their campaign last night, and OMG, we can already tell this is going to be one sultry shoot! The black and white photo, shot by Nan Goldin, features a fully-bearded (!!!) Robert looking stoic in a ribbed sweater, jeans and, well, not much else. Yesterday, we peeped sneak peek photos (super grainy ones, nonetheless) from a Dior party earlier this week and got the feeling that something, erm, sensual was happening in them. (See: Robert shirtless in a bed with an equally-naked lady.)

Robert Pattinson is the new face of Dior Homme!

Not to be all, "We told you so," but we totally got wind of Robert Pattinson being the new face of Dior Homme last fall. Even though sources denied the claims, today WWD announced that the Twilight star is, in fact, the official celebrity ambassador of their men's fragrance. YASSSS. He follows in the footsteps of Jude Law, Natalie Portman and Charlize Theron, who formerly fronted the French fashion house's campaigns. We're SO stoked to see the full campaign (especially considering RPattz was formerly a model #WERK), and, thanks to some Twi-hard fans pointing us to some Instagram pics from a Dior event last night, we already got a sneak peek of what to expect. Eeee!

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
