It’s official: Timothée Chalamet ventures into beauty as Chanel’s new ambassador for the iconic Bleu De Chanel fragrance; a scent as enigmatic as the actor himself. The French-American actor has gained a worldwide reputation for his bold style and unapologetic charm, perfectly personifying the visionary and edgy spirit of the next chapter of Bleu De Chanel.
Undoubtedly one of the biggest names in Hollywood, Timothée has proven in recent years that he is also a fully-fledged fashion fanboy. Here, to commemorate his venture into landing a contract bid with the luxury French fashion house, we look back at some of his best looks ever.
Shirtless and sequinned moment
Timothée showed up to the 2022 Oscars red carpet in the glimmering Louis Vuitton ensemble. The blazer, paired with some sleek pants, made for a head-turning entrance.
Now, this is a floral masterpiece. By Alexander McQueen, he arrived at the UK premiere of Beautiful Boy in a romantic floral suit with some serious footwear: black leather Chelsea boots.
Another Alexander McQueen number, but this time it was something a bit rougher around the edges – a leather biker jacket and matching leather pants.
Bold in blood-red backless
Bold, fun and never too self-serious. At the Venice Film Festival, he wore a sleeveless, backless, bright red top, scarf and pants from Haider Ackermann.
Attending the 2020 Oscars, he served workwear chic. His tracksuit-cum-boiler suit was crafted in Prada’s Re-nylon material, which is made from reclaimed sources such as ocean plastics, fishing nets and textile fibre waste.
Wow-ing in white
Combining high fashion with high street, he wore an all-white ensemble featuring a satin tuxedo jacket from Haider Ackermann with contrasting black lapels. The daring parts of his outfit were the Rick Owens sweatpants and Converse trainers.
Sparkly harness slay
Instead of the traditional tux, ties and bows, he graced the 2019 Golden Globes in an embellished Louis Vuitton by Virgil Abloh harness.
He opted for an effortlessly chic camel leather jacket with grey pants at the Paris premiere of Call Me By Your Name.
Timothée and Haider Ackermann made another magic with this belted silver waisted suit at The King premiere during the Venice Film Festival.
A normcore staple
A serious master of off-duty dressing, he was spotted wearing a Prada windbreaker, Prada brown slacks, New Balance sneakers and a Chelsea Football Club cap.
Art buff-meets-streetwear aficionado
At the 2019 Busan International Film Festival, he boldly wore tie-dye dungarees and a shirt created by American artist Sterling Ruby, which he styled with some chunky white boots.
A blip of colour
Keeping it slimline, and colours to a solid pairing. His neon yellow mock-neck shirt offered a pop of colour to the Givenchy suit he wore to the New York premiere of The King.
