Imagine this: A golden boy in a sparkly hoodie steps onto a crimson carpet in London. Minutes later, millions of thumbs robotically refresh Instagram for just one more angle. Timothée Chalamet immediately trends worldwide. Again. That's a real story; my thumb was one of those worn out from scrolling the night he lit up London in the year's most spectacular sweatshirt. According to Lyst's Year in Fashion, the aforementioned hoodie, a standout Louis Vuitton piece, cemented the actor's place among Hollywood's best dressed men and even caused a 192% spike in searches for men's hoodies in general. Meanwhile, Timothée wore so much Haider Ackermann this year that he created the most organic interest in any designer for 2019—more than Meghan Markle.

The revered young actor, just a few steps into his ascent up the Hollywood ladder, is no stranger to such fervent regard, not after all the hullabaloo over his turn in Call Me By Your Name. (Well deserved, it must be said.) Still, Timothée has a lot of eyes on him, many of which are particularly attuned to his wardrobe choices—picks he chooses himself, having eschewed the traditional actor-and-stylist setup. That's not to say he doesn't have significant relationships with certain designers. It's clear he favors Haider Ackermann, Louis Vuitton, and Alexander McQueen. Those relationships are mutually beneficial, clearly, as every outfit he wears sets the internet alight but is also creatively inspiring—think a canvas of International Klein Blue, tie-dye overalls, checkerboard pants, and more.

With some big projects on the horizon, notably Little Women, which drops Christmas Day of this year, this wunderkind will no doubt give us more to discuss. For now, keep scrolling for all of Timothée Chalamet's best looks of 2019 and beyond.
