Timothée Chalamet steals red carpet with shimmering backless halter top

Chalamat really put his back into the role

Timothée Chalamet has really put the red in red carpet, stealing the show at the Venice Film Festival where he turned up in a shimmering, backless halter top and matching trousers.

Chalamet won the day in a custom ruby-red halter top and co-ordinating trousers, made by his designer mate, Haider Ackermann. The pair has worked together series times to dramatic effect.

Chalamet was in Venice for the world premiere of his latest film, Luca Guadagnino’s cannabalistic horror Bones and All and his outfit led to a torrent of tweets about how he was good enough to…

The 26-year-old’s show-stopping outfit simply “won” the day.

“The star of the Venice red carpet this year, like every year… #timothèechalamet,” one tweeted.

Another added: “Timothée Chalamet always WINS. Backless top at the Venice Film Festival.”

A third person wrote: “Timothée Chalamet’s backless outfit just put the ‘nice’ in ‘Venice Film Festival’.”

But the outfit was also the target of some good natured humour. A few noted Chalamet’s unlikely resemblance to the Chronicles of Narnia’s topless Mr Tumnus in his red scarf.

Bones and All also went down well. Director Luca Guadagnino reportedly received a eight-and-a-half-minute standing ovation.

Chalamet and Taylor Russell star as cannabalistic lovers, in the horror flicks, and embark on a cross-country trip. The actors are supported by an all-star cast, including Mark Rylance, Michael Stuhlbarg, André Holland, Chloë Sevigny, Jessica Harper and David Gordon Green.

Chalamet recently told Deadline how the film is about being young and “intensely judged.”

“It was a relief to play characters who are wrestling with an internal dilemma absent the ability to go on Reddit or Twitter or Instagram or TikTok and figure out where they fit in,” he exlained.

“Without casting judgment on that, because if you can find your tribe there, then all the power. But I think it’s tough to be alive now. I think societal collapse is in the air, it smells like it, and without being pretentious, I hope that’s why these movies matter because that’s the role of the artist is to shine a light on what’s going on.”

Bones and All is released in the US on 23 November.
