What do you get when Timothée Chalamet and Tilda Swinton join forces? A fashion match made in heaven. Today at the premiere of Wes Anderson’s The French Dispatch at the Cannes Film Festival, co-stars Timothée Chalamet and Tilda Swinton hit the red carpet together in two striking looks. The actors and noted fashion plates have a history of taking risks on the carpet—Chalamet in sequined harnesses, Swinton in outré masks and shapely couture—but together their effect was dazzling.
The two stars opted for complementary looks that shined separately and together. Swinton chose a colorful ensemble by Haider Ackermann—one of her and Chalamet’s most frequent collaborators—which included a cropped, pink satin bolero blazer and top, paired with an orange floor-length skirt. Never one to skimp on theatrical flair, Swinton wore sequin green sleeves underneath the blazer. As for Chalamet, he chose to drip himself in silver. His streamlined, two-piece metallic suit by Tom Ford was punctuated by a crisp white shirt and white heeled boots. Where other stars went traditional and glamorous (it’s the Cannes way), the two weren’t afraid to step out of the box and still get bold with their looks.
Even better than all the fashion was their affectionate poses on the red carpet. They held hands, and Chalamet even rested his head on Swinton’s shoulder at one point. We hope this energy continues on throughout the film’s press tour, because is there anything better than good style and public displays of admiration?
