How Timothée Chalamet Became One of the Best-Dressed Stars of Our Generation

Timothée Chalamet seemed to come out of nowhere. The actor was primarily recognized as the vice president's smarmy son on Homeland until his breakout role in 2017's Call Me by Your Name, which would earn him a best actor Oscar nomination at just 22 years old. Now, he's inescapable: working with legendary directors, acting alongside great talents, and creating quite the internet fandom with his endearing personality. Then there's his style.

A product of his generation, Timothée doesn't shy away from androgynous silhouettes, vibrant colors, and statement-making suits. For his red carpet attire, Timothée has frequently turned to designers like Haider Ackermann and Virgil Abloh, who often experiment with texture and prints. His effortless, on-trend street style, meanwhile, seems to be informed by his New York upbringing.

"I'm such a fan boy."

Timothée described himself as a fashion "fan boy" in a 2018 interview with Frank Ocean for VMan. "[Being involved] with fashion has been really fun, just as a fan. I don't want to work with a stylist or anything. I've been following designers like Raf, Haider Ackermann, Hedi Slimane — these guys are like rock stars. They're artists," he added.

In case you were curious, yes, Timothée has since continued to style himself, and, well, it seems to be working out for him. Look ahead to see the many outfits that helped him attain his style star status.
