Chalamet’s journey to becoming one of the film world’s most undeniably stylish dressers is all the more thrilling because it has been wholly defined on his own terms. (The fashion-loving actor famously works without a stylist.) From his beloved Haider Ackermann tailoring to the streetwear inflected details of his red carpet looks by Virgil Abloh at Louis Vuitton, to his eye for up-and-coming labels like S.R. Studio. LA. CA., his ability to showcase his eclectic style with the utmost ease has made him a standout star.
Yet just as noteworthy is Chalamet’s magpie-like eye for a dazzling jewelry moment. (Who can forget the tiny Eiffel Tower keychain he wore as the world’s dinkiest accessory to the Little Women premiere in 2019?) It turns out, however, that Chalamet was already a fully paid-up Cartier fan, having worn their pieces on the red carpet on multiple occasions in the past, entirely of his own accord. According to Cartier, Chalamet was even specifically keen to work with the brand’s jewelry instead of the typical decision for male actors to showcase their watches.
Whether wearing the brand’s Love and Trinity rings to the 2019 BAFTA Awards, or a silver Clash de Cartier bracelet to the premiere of The French Dispatch at Cannes earlier this year—paired with a complementary shiny silver Tom Ford suit, of course—Chalamet has more than proven his ability to wear the full spectrum of jewelry styles from classic to cutting-edge with panache. Then, there was his outfit for the 2020 Oscars, a bold Prada boiler suit that saw a vintage Cartier brooch from 1955 painstakingly crafted from rubies and diamonds.
Tonight, Chalamet’s jewelry told a new and more futuristic story, in keeping with his latest flick. Does the look mark the next step in the ever-growing market for men’s jewelry? Only time will tell. But for now, Chalamet’s new partnership with Cartier offers the prospect of plenty more glittering delights to come.
