Timothée Chalamet always knows how to dress for a topic. When he promoted The King at the Venice Film Festival in 2019, do you recall the futuristic Cartier brooches he wore for the Dune premiere from the previous year or the regal silver Haider Ackermann suit? Bones and All, the actor’s most recent film, which sees him teaming up with Call Me by Your Name director Luca Guadagnino for a cannibal road trip romance, is one of the few of the actor’s earlier efforts to allow him to be as imaginative with his aesthetic.
A completely backless halterneck jumpsuit by his trusted designer buddy Haider Ackermann, made of glistening blood-red satin, was worn by Chalamet for the movie’s debut at Venice in September. It was one of his most daring appearances to date. Then, for its world premiere at the London Film Festival last month, he wore an extremely on-brand skeletal choker by Vivienne Westwood, made of silver “bones” covered in diamonds.
In light of this, it was especially pleasing to see Chalamet show up today for a photo call in anticipation of the movie’s Milan premiere wearing yet another outfit that reflected the murderous nature of his most recent endeavor – and once again resorting to Vivienne Westwood to do it. Chalamet’s outfit was ideal for a vamp: a fluffy grey ombré sweater with heart motifs and the brand’s orb logo, combined with black leather pants and matching boots. It’s probably on purpose if the appearance reminds you of the mid-2000s emo movement. The choker, which had strategically placed bones to hold the strings of sparkling pearls together, was the show-stopping item, however it had a very Vivienne Westwood-esque and Bones and All-appropriate twist.
Later on in the evening, Chalamet changed up his appearance once more. He showed up for the Italian premiere of the movie wearing a sleeveless striped blouse with a swishy bib, leather pants once more, and a pair of chic patent leather boots with a golden buckle accent. (Of course, Chalamet also wore a ton of jewelry, sporting a collection of sparkling Cartier bracelets and rings made of silver and diamonds.) Chalamet may be reviving the emo look, but he’s giving it a chic, high fashion spin while also arguing for maximalist men’s jewelry.
