The location was Sala Grande for the 76th Venice Film Festival and amongst a sea of screaming fans, stern-looking publicists and a star-studded guest list the cast of new Netflix film ‘The King’, the style reign of Timothee Chalamet continued. Following a stellar awards season earlier this year, it appears that the 23 year-old can do no wrong and arriving back into the Hollywood scene, we may have witnessed his best red carpet look yet.
Stepping onto the red carpet with the likes of Lily-Rose Depp and Joel Edgerton, Chalamet proved why he is style royalty donning a silver Haider Ackermann suit and boots – a go-to designer for the Beautiful Boy actor. However, this was no standard suit and once again the man is redefining classic sartorial style. With a slim-fit blazer, the look was paired with a high, almost cowl-style neckline in a stunning sheen of silver, relaxed pants, rolled for a cropped hemline and low heeled, western-style boots. But perhaps the winning elements for the look came from a cummerbund belt, secured high on top of the blazer as well as contrast panels of silver on the collar and lapels.
Seemingly drawing inspiration from his role as Hal or King Henry V in The King, Chalamet attended the photo call yesterday wearing a grey, collarless jacket and shirt ensemble, also by Haider Ackermann. If anything, Chalamet makes a case for stepping outside the sartorial boundaries, though if you try this at home, proceed with caution.

In an interview with VMan, the actor revealed he doesn’t want or uses a stylist and prefers to wear designers he loves. “[Being involved] with fashion has been really fun, just as a fan,” Chalamet told Ocean in the Q+A. “I don’t want to work with a stylist or anything. I’ve been following designers like Raf, Haider Ackermann, Hedi Slimane—these guys are like rock stars. They’re artists.”
The King follows Hal (Timothée Chalamet), a wayward prince and reluctant heir to the English throne, who turns his back on royal life and is living among the people. But when his tyrannical father dies, Hal is crowned King Henry V and is forced to embrace the life he had previously tried to escape. Incoming reviews are praising the work of director David Michôd with Variety saying Chalamet, “could be the biggest movie star of his generation.” We will add ‘style icon’ to that claim too.
The King has arrived.
