Twilight star Robert Pattinson is sizzling hot in the first image released from the Dior Homme fragrance campaign.

In the black-and-white photo revealed on the fashion brand's Twitter account, the 27-year-old British actor is seen sitting in a bathtub and smiling at a mystery woman. The model's bare legs rest beside Pattinson on the edge of the bathtub.

"A new story is about to start. Robert Pattinson for Dior Homme Parfum. #‎DiorRob," the fashion label tweeted.

Previously, Pattinson was seen sharing a passionate kiss with French model Camille Rowe for the brand's print campaign; the image surfaced online ahead of its release date.

"Rob let down every barrier shooting this ad. He was open to the idea of having a love interest and thoroughly enjoyed making out with the models," an insider at Dior previously told the Mirror, "It was definitely a hot shoot. Millions of fans all over the world are going to be gagging to see this advert the second it goes out."

Pattinson, who has been voted Sexiest Man by Glamour Magazine, was officially named as the new face of Dior Homme Fragrance in June.

The campaign, photographed by American artist Nan Goldin and filmed by French director Romain Gavras, is due to launch in September.
