A bright silky suit is a brave choice in itself, but who’d have thought the way to make it more classy is to top it with more silk?

With the spirit of freedom and camaraderie — the Festival aims to raise awareness and promote international cinema in all its forms as art.  The Festival also recognizes and gives tribute to those who have provided a significant contribution to its history.


With all its art and glory, the Film Festival brought sartorial, ethical and delicate fashion to Venice.  But nothing stunned the red carpet more than Timothée Chalamet in his Suit.

From his standout performances in Call Me by Your Name, Lady Bird and Beautiful Boy it is not a surprise that Chalamet got his Oscar-nomination at the age of 21. When he debuted at the 76th Venice International Film Festival this week for his Henry V film “The King,” he proved that he could also be a fashion icon. Wearing a bold silver suit and silky blouse from French-Colombian designer Haider Ackermann for his walk down the red carpet the young actor looked nothing but perfection.

A bright silky suit is a brave choice in itself, but who’d have thought the way to make it more classy is to top it with more silk? Timmy reinvented the suit and perceptions of what modern tailoring could be by walking in a bespoke silver silk suit.


When asked about his fashion choices, the 23-year-old Oscar nominee said:

“It’s just a fun part of it,” Chalamet said Tuesday after the premiere. “It feels like there’s no allowance for it as self-expression. Male actors in years past felt a certain pressure to not, but I just think it’s a lot of fun.”

The internet is swoon with this look by the young actor. Here are some reactions from his fans:
