Make no mistake that Timothée Chalamet is one of the most fashionable men of our generation. And it's not just me that's saying that. His ascent to style icon status has seen him grabbing attention on the red carpet in some of the most daring versions of suits, and has culminated in him scoring his first major luxury brand ambassadorship.
Yes, our boy Timmy is officially a friend of Cartier—affording him the ability to be drenched in Cartier timepieces and jewellery whenever he makes a public appearance.
Chalamet's increasing style prominence began with him proclaiming that he'd rather not work with a stylist to help him craft looks, opting instead to befriend and work with brands and designers directly. That move certainly has helped cement friendships with Virgil Abloh of Louis Vuitton and perhaps his closest collaborator, Haider Ackermann. But with his popularity climbing and two films coming out in 2021—Dune and The French Dispatch—Chalamet has since tapped on the assistance of stylist Erin Walsh.
The partnership comes almost unnoticeable. Chalamet's penchant for statement tailoring and contemporary stylings were still upheld in the form of a beautifully printed Stella McCartney suit worn in London ahead of a UK screening of Dune, as well as an Alexander McQueen suit detailed with zips for the red carpet of said screening—both styled by Walsh.
But with all the designer fashion that Chalamet have closely aligned himself with, he surprises at times with his knowledge of cult brands. For example, there's the 'In God We Trust' graphic tee by Elara that he put himself in for a The French Dispatch photocall during the 2021 Cannes Film Festival (that was perhaps a too-casual option for the event but hey, he looked effortlessly good in it).

That's the thing with Chalamet that's quite endearing: he knows when to switch things up. The man can just as easily wear all the Haider Ackermanns, Saint Laurents and Tom Fords, as he can look just as stylish in sweats and trainers. What's more relatable than that, really?
