Timothée Chalamet dazzles at the Oscars in Louis Vuitton women’s fashion

Written by Oscar Holland, CNN

Timothée Chalamet cemented his reputation as one of Hollywood’s most daring dressers by appearing at the Oscars in Louis Vuitton women’s fashion.

The star wowed onlookers at Hollywood’s Dolby Theater on Sunday night in an embroidered lace jacket and high-waisted trousers from the brand’s Spring/Summer 2022 collection. He then gave the flowing outfit his own twist with a sparkling necklace and a pair of black boots.

But it wasn’t just what Chalamet wore who ignited social media is what he didn’t: a shirt.

Shirtless under his black blazer, the actor made fans swoon online. “Timothée Chalamet is basically a rockstar, isn’t he?” wrote a Twitter user, with another joke: “I would like to thank whoever made this outfit, Timothée Chalamet’s parents, and God.”

The 26-year-old star – who starred in two films nominated for Best Picture this year, ‘Dune’ and ‘Don’t Look Up’ – is known for her edgy red carpet fashion. Recent awards ceremonies have seen him appear on “best dressed” lists thanks to his use of bright colors, sharp cuts and high-end streetwear.

He also regularly turns to Louis Vuitton for the biggest occasions, including the 2019 Golden Globes, where he wore a sparkling harness that went viral and sparked a menswear trend in the process.

Although the Oscars are known for their relatively understated fashion, Chalamet has already used Hollywood’s biggest night to make statements — like the all-white Berluti suit he wore to the 2018 ceremony. Two years later, his Prada‘s blue hybrid tracksuit has become one of the most talked about men’s looks of the night after drawing comparisons online with various uniformed workers, from a paramedic to a valet.

The actor was one of many male stars to take an adventurous approach to this year’s red carpet. Daniel Kaluuya and “The Power of the Dog” star Kodi Smit-McPhee were among those who eschewed conventional black tie with brightly colored suits.

But not everyone was impressed with Chalamet’s outfit, which was designed by Louis Vuitton’s creative director Nicolas Ghesquière, with a commentator in writing: “Someone throws a blanket over Timothée Chalamet and calls his mother.”
