Timothée Chalamet has been making waves in the industry following worldwide recognition for his portrayal of Elio Perlman in Luca Guagagnino’s Call Me by Your Name. However, this recognition is not only for his impeccable acting skills. Chalamet has become a pioneer in men’s fashion, taking risks in the forms of tie-dye overalls and a Louis Vuitton bib. He is not afraid to blur the line between masculine and feminine in floral Alexander McQueen suits and a sequined Louis Vuitton hoodie. Yet, he still stays tied to his industrial, NYC roots through his effortlessly cool street style. Timothée Chalamet is changing the way we view menswear and making our Instagram feeds 100 times better in the process (because who doesn’t love seeing Timmy on their feed). And he doesn’t even have a stylist! Below, you will find Chalamet’s top ten best style moments, as ranked by me.
10. Berluti leather jacket at the Call Me By Your Name premiere at UGC Cine Cite des Halles in Paris, France
This brown leather look marked the beginning of his Call Me by Your Name fame, and his style revolution. He manages to still look polished, wearing a not-so-typical premiere look. The unexpected combination of brown leather, a white tee, grey spotted pants and black boots present a modern, yet classic look. In Chalamet’s case, no suit, no problem!
9. Street style: plaid shirt, tee, skinny jeans and pink Golf Le Fleur x Converse sneakers
With the plaid shirt and tee combination, Chalamet is serving major grunge vibes with this look. However, opting to wear Gold Le Fleurs rather than Doc Martens, he puts his own spin on the timeless look. Golf Le Fleurs, Tyler the Creator’s converse collaboration, brings elements of NYC street-style to the look.
8. Alexander McQueen suit at the 24th annual Critics’ Choice Awards
Chalamet is no stranger to wearing abstract prints. In 2014, he sported a pair of galaxy-print joggers to the premiere of Lars von Trier’s Nymphomaniac. This time around, he presents a refined nod to his 17-year-old style catastrophe. If the suit itself was not already cool enough, the simple black tee underneath, chain necklace, pinky ring and white sneakers make it even better.
7. Celine at the 25th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards
You can never go wrong with an all-black ensemble. Chalamet’s black-on-black look is the opposite of understated. The combination of the white polka dots and black leather add texture and depth to the look. His black boots add extra edge to his Celine jacket, shirt and pants.
6. Haider Ackermann at the 76th Venice Film Festival
Chalamet usually pulls from a darker color palette, so pastels are a bit of a novelty for him. However, this futuristic, light grey and blue Haider Ackermann outfit is the perfect look for the Venice Film Festival. The modern silhouette of the jacket works very well atop his blue shirt, which adds a nice pop of color. The black boots and classic sunglasses dress down the look, making it seem effortless, yet polished.
5. Louis Vuitton at the 76th annual Golden Globe Awards
I think this look stands for itself. I like to call it ‘The One that Broke the Golden Globes.’ I think more people were buzzing about Chalamet’s look than the actual awards ceremony. Who else shows up wearing an embroidered Louis Vuitton bib? No one! And who else could pull this look off? Absolutely no one.
4. S.R. Studio at the 24th Busan International Film Festival
Wearing an S.R. Studio shirt, overalls and boots, Chalamet takes a risk like he never quite has before. Mixing tie-dye and overalls could go wrong in so, so many ways. However, Chalamet keeps it fresh with chunky white boots.
3. Gorillaz Tee and Isabel Marant at a Little Women photo call in London
In case you were not already convinced that Chalamet was a fashion icon, he wore a band tee to an official photo call and managed to look amazing. Pairing the tee with Isabel Marant Homme striped pants and laced combat boots, this edgy look only adds to his style versatility.
2. Prada in Manhattan
Chalamet is the king of street style. His Prada coat is quite similar to the Prada anorak Frank Ocean wore to the MET Gala. Wearing black joggers, colorful socks, New Balance sneakers and Fendi sunglasses topped off with bright red Sony headphones, Chalamet made the jacket more casual but no less cool.
- Stella McCartney at the Little Women Paris Premiere
Now, if it is not Chalamet’s best style moment of all time. He wore a Stella McCartney suit to the Little Women premiere in Paris, but it was not just any suit. The suit was actually pulled from McCartney’s pre-fall 2019 womenswear collection. That is right; Timothée Chalamet wore a women’s suit to the premiere of Little Women. Could that be anymore suit-able? Accessorizing with a silver chain and an Eiffel tower keychain gifted from a fan, he proved that magenta is definitely his color.
