Timothee Chalamet on Vogue China Cover

Timothee Chalamet makes Vogue history as its inaugural male cover star: for the first time ever since Vogue launched 106 years ago! As Little Women star and multiple award winner, his success is recognized on two alternative covers styled by Steven Meisel.

British Vogue editor-in-chief Edward Enninful describes him as being “modern man incarnate, both as an actor and as an individual.

Chalamet’s most recent role, in Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi epic Dune, saw him explore his personal style. His outfits in the film – including an eye-catching silver Haider Ackermann suit with subtle yet daring details – quickly went viral for their striking yet subtle characteristics.

Since then, his red carpet styles have taken on a distinct new form: an unexpected blend of softness and edge. His wardrobe boasts technical tailoring pieces from Berluti, DIDU and Yeezy that give his look its signature edge; these have earned him the moniker “Timo Bro” on Instagram.

Chalamet remains unassuming and down-to-earth despite his stylistic growth, telling Vogue’s team in their October issue interview, “I never expected it would become such an adventure; this journey has been extraordinary so far.”

In an interview, he says his career truly took off in 2015 after appearing in Lars von Trier’s “Nymphomaniac” and being seen wearing galaxy-print trousers at a screening of “Call Me by Your Name.” However, his sense of style had always been rather unpolished prior to this success.

Chalamet’s initial forays into streetwear included bold patterns and textures, such as when he donned navy velvet trousers paired with matching jacket for a screening of “Call Me By Your Name,” or his black and white checkered tuxedo at the “Lady Bird” premiere in 2017. Later he would shift toward more subdued yet sophisticated silhouettes such as his crimson suede bomber worn to Oscars or lavender suit at screenings of “Call Me By Your Name.”

Chalamet has also developed a close partnership with designer Haider Ackermann, which has resulted in numerous stylish looks for him. Ackmann dressed Chalamet in a brown tracksuit to wear at Venice Film Festival last week and they continue their collaboration together on other occasions.

Chalamet has also added his personal flair to his ensembles with vintage brooches designed by designer, including one that may allude to “Dune”. (There has even been speculation that it could be related to Dune).

Chalamet has evolved in his style over time, evolving beyond formal events to more casual looks that combine elegance with grunge for a distinct urban aesthetic. Among his favorites pieces in his wardrobe are black nylon parker by Prada, acid wash jeans from various designers, dark hoodies and “dad” trainers.
