Timothee Chalamet went Full Tilda Swinton at the Venice Film Festival

Ladies and gentlemen, A KING. Or perhaps THE KING. On Labor Day, Timothee Chalamet was in Venice to promote The King, which is sort of a Generation Z version of Henry V. I truly hope there are 13-15 year old girls reading Shakespeare’s Henry plays just because Timothee Chalamet introduced them to them to the works. I’m including photos of Timothee and his girlfriend/costar Lily-Rose Depp at the photocall and at last night’s premiere.

Timothee has always had his own style and he’s not going to wear a suit and tie just because all of the other dudes are doing it. NO. Timothee likes fashion and so I can just imagine him checking out what Tilda Swinton wears and he was like “I’m going to aim for THAT.” So he contacted Haider Ackermann and they gave him this FULL SWINTON look. Personally, I would have loved it more without the rolled up pants and the boots. Or maybe with the boots, but without the roll-up. Hm. But the jacket is fantastic! We stan a king who dresses like Tilda Swinton. Timothee could do the Orlando remake.

As for Lily-Rose… she wore this Chanel gown which… is fine. It’s actually kind of plain dress, but she loved how it billowed, so she played with the skirt a lot on the carpet. It looked dramatic.

As for the reviews… well, they’re mixed. Some critics are like “Timothee is the most beautiful king to ever brood” and some critics are like “Robert Pattinson gives a bonkers, scene-stealing performance as the Dauphin.”

  2. lily says:

    lily looks great in Chanel, she’s got the personality.
    I wish Robert was there :(((

  3. Lala11_7 says:

    Timothée is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo……


    And he can act his TAIL off too!

  4. StarGreek says:

    Am I the only one who cannot stand him? Even if he is the best actor in the world I don’t get what the fuss is about.

  5. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    The rolled pants. Ridiculous.

  6. Pixie says:

    I just might have to stan. Timothee looks AMAZING, the suit is glorious and there is nothing about the look that doesn’t work from the boots, to the cuffs to the delicate neckline. I really hope men in Hollywood are paying attention, because this boy is single-handedly raising the bar. The reviews have made me a little apprehensive about the movie, but if this cast keeps showing up and showing out on the red carpet, I might have to watch just to give credit where its due.

    • Millennial says:

      I love him. I was in denial for a while, but I’ve hopped on the Stan train.

    • Kitten says:

      Yeah I think the whole look works. I wouldn’t have minded if the boots weren’t black (gray or white maybe?) but I like them with the rolled up pants TBH.

  7. Gingerbread says:

    I actually love Lily’s dress. She looks fantastic, so does Timothee.

  8. ChillyWilly says:

    Ugh, no. They look like they are going to the world’s most pretentious prom.

    • Gil says:

      The Cannes festival is a prom for most of its attendance, so they are on theme.

      • manta says:

        They would be if they were in Cannes.
        I know all european cities are the same for some people.
        It’s Venice.
        Different festival ( which actually brands itself as less fluffy ,less L’Oréal more cinephile than Cannes), different city , different country .

  9. Life is Cheese says:

    She looks gorgeous. He looks like a little boy wearing his mother’s clothes.

  10. ME says:

    He’s such a good actor.

  11. Megan says:

    I never want to see a photo of Timothee with Johnny Depp.

  12. L84Tea says:

    Now I want to see this just for Robert Pattinson’s performance.

  13. Ashley says:

    So two reviews constitute mixed?Plus the boots and the cuff feature help make the outfit.

  14. lali says:

    Pattinson’s acting has been getting really good feedback these last years, I think he’ll end up getting a nomination for supporting actor.

    • Pixie says:

      @lali, he has definitely done some interesting parts, but I think his accent work here is probably going to disqualify him for an award, based on the reviews.

  16. Lucy says:

    Look at the little Fabulous Alien guy go!

  17. Sof says:

    Now that you mentioned it, yes, I want to see him in Orlando.
    And I’m glad we are finally getting more interesting looks from men at red carpets.

  18. Lizzie says:

    his face is exquisite.

  19. BaronSamedi says:

    I like the fact that for once HE is the more interesting part of this couple? Lily Rose is very pretty but I think the fact that she looks so much like her mother actually plays against her. It feels like I have ‘seen’ her face so much already I am almost over it? It also feels like there is nothing much going on behind her eyes.

    • Gingerbread says:

      It’s so crazy how most celeb spawn often have that blank, glazed look in their eyes. Is it because they have had everything they wanted since birth? I’m not sure what gives a person spark but wealth/beauty are not personality traits, but some truly believe that.

      • Pixie says:

        @gingerbread, I know the exact look you mean and it’s super bizarre. All the Jenners and a lot of that young Hollywood crowd have it. I think it may be the look of perpetual boredom and general unimpressed-ness, underscored by the knowledge they won the lottery at birth and have yet to have an interesting thought about it. Or maybe they’re just super high!

  20. koko says:

    Love the jacket but the rolled up pants and boots remind me of Captain Kirk, the original Star Trek. I would prefer the pants unrolled.

  21. MellyMel says:

    He is so gorgeous and that suit is fantastic!

  22. noway says:

    He may not have got everything right, but thank you for this Timothee. I love it!!! Finally a guy who wears fashion and doesn’t just look silly. Don’t get me wrong, I love a man in a well cut tux, but when it’s all you see, it’s boring as hell!!!

    Lilly Rose looks beautiful too, but it’s another muted color which is so in these days, but all I see a dirty. Still, she pulls it off. She does look like her mother, but I don’t think that’s a big problem. Unless you are into celebrities, not really sure Vanessa is as well known as people think.

    Plus, I have to see this movie for Pattinson now!!! It wasn’t even on my radar, as I don’t see a lot of these period type of movies anymore, a bit overdone in my opinion. Still his performance sounds like it may be worth it.

  23. Meg says:

    So rpattz is so bad it’s a must watch. Kind of like Twilight lol

    • Another Anne says:

      Actually, most of the reviews seem to say he’s the best part of the movie. He’s meant to be a flamboyant sociopath, providing some comic relief, according to the director.

  24. SM says:

    I know Henry V died around age of 35 so quote young, but still this obsession with youth in Hollywood is beyond me. Would someone call this mess out if this was a story about a woman, say a queen? But since it’s Timmy, everyone is ok with that? The more viewers are getting used to seeing young actors as leads the more it will affect the casting of women in important roles. Ans the female lead here is a product of nepotism. Nice. However, he looks great at the premiere. The Tilda look is working for him.

  25. susiecue says:

    I love it from head to toe! Such a beauty!

  26. SJR says:

    Timothy has very good hair. He is a very beautiful young man.
    Hollywood burns thru their young, so good luck to him. Save your money, Timothy…nothing is forever.

    I agree that Lily looks so much like her Mother, its as if VP is having an extended run.
    Pretty dress, and she carries it well, good posture. Which is nice for a change.

  27. EM says:

    Le Petit Prince, with his beloved Lily-Rose.

  28. Katrine Troelsen says:

    Dear God, Lily is undeserving of this dude. Please let them be over soon and let him meet someone cool!

  29. MariaS says:

    I can’t imagine anyone else pulling this off. He looks amazing and his confidence is selling it.
