In recent years, the American-French actor has become one of the biggest names in the film industry and a standard-bearer for men’s fashion.
In 2017, Timothée Chalamet rose to international fame playing the role of Elio in Luca Guadagnino’s Call Me By Your Name: a springboard that put him in the spotlight of film critics and audiences alike, making him one of the youngest actors to receive an Oscar nomination at the age of 22 and, in turn, a public figure capable of mobilising the masses.
The French-American made it onto the best-dressed podium in an outfit by French-Colombian designer Haider Ackermann, with whom he also collaborated at the last edition of the same festival, during the presentation of Dune, and who has been a regular in Chalamet’s wardrobe for more than three years.
Although the French-American actor had been involved in more than a dozen projects to date, including roles in series such as Law and Order and Homeland, and films such as Men, Women and Children and Interstellar, Timothée Chalamet began to experience success with the film adaptation of André Aciman’s novel. And with success came the most important projects of his career.
Nine years later, little remains of the teenager who used to rap with his high school friends about the ins and outs of statistics: beyond his recognisable face and his characteristic naturalness, baggy clothes and a cap are a thing of the past. Since 2018, Timothée Chalamet has also become an icon of men’s fashion, lighting up every red carpet and becoming an example that men’s fashion can go a step beyond the classic black suit.
