Timothée Chalamet


The Oscar-nominated actor has pushed fashion boundaries and redefined what men’s red carpet wear can look like.


Timothée Chalamet is an actor, style icon and ambassador for Cartier.

Chalamet has been working in Hollywood for over a decade, but it’s within the past five years that he’s risen to international superstardom thanks to roles in films like “Little Women,” “Lady Bird,” “Dune,” and “Call Me By Your Name,” earning an Oscar nomination for the latter. 

As his star as an actor has risen, so has his prominence in fashion. Chalamet has become synonymous with pushing fashion boundaries, particularly when it comes to what leading men are expected to wear on the red carpet, as he embraces bold colours, unique tailoring and details and gender-neutral ensembles. Among his most notable looks are a sparkly black Louis Vuitton harness at the 2019 Golden Globes, a baby pink seersucker Thom Browne suit at the 2019 premiere of “Little Women,” and most recently, a metallic red halter-necked pantsuit by Haider Ackermann .

Despite his star power in the industry, Chalamet has been selective about his brand partnerships. He was named a “Friend of the House” for Cartier in the fall of 2021, just ahead of his headline-making appearance at the Venice Film Festival alongside “Dune” co-star Zendaya. However, he’s found other ways to take on roles in the industry: He was a co-host of the 2021 Met Gala, and teamed up with Ackermann that same year to create a hoodie, the sales of which went towards supporting women and children’s rights in Afghanistan. 

In October 2022 he became the first man to grace a solo cover of British Vogue
