After over a year and a half of canceled events and socially distant award shows, red carpets are back and bigger than ever with the arrival of the 2021 Met Gala. While there are plenty of celebrity moments I’ve been anticipating, Timothée Chalamet—tonight, a Met Gala co-chair—is one person I was most excited to see on the red carpet. He’s already been having some iconic fashion moments alongside Zendaya to promote the upcoming movie Dune, but his solo Met Gala look certainly didn’t disappoint.
Wearing a cropped Haider Ackermann jacket with a Cartier pin and brooch, Chalamet looks like he’s adhering to a white-tie dress code from the waist up. That is until you spot his slouchy white sweatpants and Converse sneakers. I thought I was over waist-up dressing and never imagined liking it on the red carpet, but Timmy has simply done it again and proven he is one of the most directional dressers on any red carpet.
