Fashion-wise, Zendaya and Timothée Chalamet have been nailing it during their Dune press tour. The co-stars began promoting the film back in September at the Venice Film Festival, when Zendaya set the internet ablaze in her wet-look Balmain gown (Chalamet, in a velvety black Haider Ackermann look, was sleek by her side). Since then, they’ve only continued their streak: Zendaya wore an ab-bearing Alaïa gown for the movie’s Paris premiere later in September, while Chalamet looked dapper in a blue Tom Ford suit. For the London photo call for the movie this weekend, however, Zendaya and Chalamet really showcased that they know how to execute co-star style by power-clashing.

Styled by Law Roach, Zendaya wore a spring 2020 look from Vivienne Westwood that consisted of a draped, chained top and checkerboard skirt. Chalamet, meanwhile, wore a custom, mushroom-print suit by Stella McCartney, completed by the matching shirt and heeled boots. Two good prints; two very different vibes.
But they worked because they showcased each star’s style so well. Chalamet loves himself a printed suit, while Zendaya has the ability to pluck any runway look and make it feel like she’s wearing it—not the other way around. When combined, these two graphic ensembles made an even bigger impact. The juxtaposition made sure all eyes were on them. It was red carpet clashing done right. Now, we only expect to see much more of this winning fashion energy throughout the rest of the Dune tour.

The Met Gala Returns! Timothée Chalamet, Billie Eilish, Naomi Osaka, and Amanda Gorman Will Cochair the Ultimate Tribute to American Style

The Met gala’s return after a year’s hiatus is cause for celebration. Part one of the Costume Institute’s exploration of the nation’s sartorial identity, “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion,” opens on September 18 and promises to be a deep dive into American ingenuity. Everything from the luxe ease of Halston’s ’70s glamour to Rodarte’s ethereal edge and Kerby Jean-Raymond’s powerful political vision for Pyer Moss will be featured in the forthcoming exhibition. Similarly, the night’s hosts also represent a cross section of homegrown talent. Gen Z superstars Timothée Chalamet, Billie Eilish, Naomi Osaka, and Amanda Gorman will serve as cochairs, while Tom Ford, Adam Mosseri, and Anna Wintour comprise the evening’s honorary chairs.
They may be young, but each of the night’s cohosts has made their mark on fashion. After breaking the leading man mold with his performance in Call Me by Your Name, Chalamet has become the most influential man in fashion. His unexpected mix of streetwear, lack of a stylist, and embrace of avant-garde labels sets him apart from his peers. Likewise, Eilish’s willingness to embrace an aesthetic as innovative as her music has pushed emerging brands into the limelight and challenged old rules about how a pop star should dress.
Though she was born in Japan, tennis champ Osaka’s formative years were spent stateside, racking up titles and developing an irreverent sense of style. The striking, colorful pieces she favors on and off the court turned her into a designer muse and one of the best-dressed athletes around. Of the group, poet and Vogue cover star Amanda Gorman is the latest to become a household name, but in her short time in the spotlight, she’s cultivated a look powerful enough to match her words.
Each of the Met’s four cohosts embodies the defining factor of American style: individualism. They may approach the concept differently, but their shared passion for expressing themselves through clothing connects with the exhibition’s theme. Chalamet, Eilish, Osaka, and Gorman have all developed a distinct visual language for their public personae, one that is informed by the legacy of iconic fashion made in the USA.
