Timothée Chalamet’s daring red carpet evolution

The annual fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York is one of the biggest events on the fashion calendar, and Chalamet is likely to dazzle on Monday evening’s red carpet alongside co-chairs Billie Eilish, Amanda Gorman and Naomi Osaka.

Blending sleek tailoring and street style, the actor has challenged traditional ideals of masculinity through bold florals, sparkling leather harnesses and an arsenal of black leather boots. Unlike many of his Hollywood contemporaries, however, Chalamet does not work with a stylist — though he undoubtedly enjoys help from the fashionable friends he has made along the way.



Having picked up TV roles in shows including “Homeland” and “Law & Order,” he began making more regular red carpet appearances after making it to the big screen in films like “Interstellar.” As a fresh-faced newcomer, his awkward neckties and tight turtlenecks marked him out as a red carpet rookie — but they spoke of a desire to experiment and go beyond the conventional black suit.
