Actor Timothée Chalamet became the first man to be photographed for the cover of British Vogue in the 106-year history of the fashion magazine.
The “Dune” and “Call Me By Your Name” star, who recently attracted a lot of attention for his choice of clothing at the Venice Film Festival, shared his perspective on fashion and the designers he chooses.
“For me, clothes are another way to express yourself. It’s fun and I will continue to push the boundaries of what I wear,” says the 26-year-old actor.
In the interview, he emphasizes that he does not follow a specific style or fashion icon, but relies solely on his personal sense.
British Vogue say they chose Chalamet to be the first man to pose without a female companion for their cover, mostly because of his innate fashion sense, but also because he’s the actor married to succeed Leonardo DiCaprio.
Chalamet’s career path has been compared to that of DiCaprio for some time now, with the Dune star believed to have the talent to be the next big movie star of several generations.
DiCaprio himself has also noticed that his younger colleague is preparing to take over the baton, which is why he took the liberty of giving him a piece of professional advice.
“No hard drugs and no superhero movies,” were the Wolf of Wall Street actor’s exact words, Timothée Chalamet said.
The two met in 2018, and at the end of last year they appeared together on screen for Adam McKay’s film Don’t Look Up.
And as for the advice, and specifically the superhero movie part, at least judging by Chalamet’s upcoming projects, he’s following it wholeheartedly.
Later this year, the drama Bones and All will be released, in which the actor plays a cannibal. We are also expected to see him reprise his role as young Willy Wonka in the upcoming musical Wonka alongside Chalamet’s biggest project, the second part of Dune, which is being shot in Budapest.
