The world of men’s fashion is never the same again since the Call Me By Your Name actor stepped on the game.
Admit it—men’s fashion is like the B-side of fashion world these days. Like an umbrella, you never really noticed its existence until you really need it. Even the great Karl Lagerfeld himself once told Numero Magazine, “men’s fashion means little to me.” Yet the game is on again at the red carpet, all thanks to Timothée Chalamet.
Say good-bye now to boring men’s red carpet fashion. It is safe to say that Timothée Chalamet is a true embodiment of red carpet fashion—flamboyant yet chic, iconic yet effortless. The 24-year old started rewriting the men’s fashion almanac since 2017 awards season, although he had shown interest in fashion since he was a coming-of-age actor. Even better, he told V Man that he chose the outfits himself without the help of a stylist. Some of his favorite designers include Haider Ackermann, Raf Simons, and Alexander McQueen among others.
Chalamet’s key look includes statement suit or vest paired with leather work boots or laid-back sneakers. He is often seen combining various textures at once, such as velvet with leather or satin with wool; making it one of his signatures. The American actor is also known for his androgynous touch as he rocked several womenswear’s pieces, flowery embroideries, sparkling beads, as well as striking colors such as fuchsia and emerald green. Despite his saucy fashion taste, the actor managed to stay classy by sticking to the law of simplicity.
Here’s some of the most game-changing red carpet looks by Timothée Chalamet so far:
Neat and sleek—Timothée hit the Venice International Film Festival red carpet in kimono-inspired suit by Haider Ackermann.
Yet another timeless chic look from “Chalamet X Haider Ackermann lookbook” during Venice International Film Festival photocall.
Arguably one of the most iconic suit+sneakers looks ever, the actor wore Alexander McQueen colorburst suit to the Critics’ Choice Awards.
No other man could rock Stella McCartney’s womenswear coat the way he did at Toronto International Film Festival in 2017.
In the following year, Chalamet owned Toronto International Film Festival again in Haider Ackermann’s velvet green suit and a pair of leather boots.
The actor attended Beautiful Boy premiere at San Sebastian International Film Festival in flower-embroidered sky blue suit from Alexander McQueen, again with sneakers.
The Beautiful Boy screening at Toronto International Film Festival got even more beautiful with Haider Ackermann’s monochromatic suit accentuated with cherry blossom silhouettes.
He truly knew how to wear fuchsia in Stella McCartney’s blazer, loose polo shirt, and silver accessories during The Little Women premiere event in Paris.
Chalamet proved his versatile fashion sense during The Little Women London photocall in Gorillaz band tee, Isabel Marant‘s trousers and—of course—his boot besties.
He took the rolled-sleeve game to the next level during The King screening at Busan International Film Festival; once again in Haider Ackermann.
