Timothée Chalamet has proven that comfort is key even when it comes to red carpet events.
The 25-year-old actor wore an all-white suit at the 2021 Met Gala in New York City on September 13. It was accompanied by balloon pants and a blazer with contrasting black lapels and was created by Haider Ackermann.
Unlike some celebrities who graced the red carpet dripping with bespoke pearls and – in the case of L’il Nas, gold armor – the Call me by your name star did not wear a designer from head to toe.
Instead, he opted for a pair of high top men’s Converse to complete the look.
Whereas the theme of the first part of the annual event was “In America: A Fashion Lexicon”, it makes perfect sense that he opted for America’s most popular sneakers – the classic Chuck Taylor All Star shoes – which debuted in the 1920s and are still so popular today.
Chalamet changed his sneakers slightly, as he was wearing the Off-white x Chuck 70 high-top sneakers, but covered the usual black Converse emblem with what appears to be a white circle to be more red carpet ready.
The Off-White Chuck 70 High Sneakers were created in creation with designer Virgil Abloh’s Off White branding and are still available for purchase for a fairly reasonable price of £ 70.
The high top sneakers are made from a cream canvas material and feature the iconic red and blue stripe along the rubber sole.
However, there are a plethora of other high-end style Converse sneakers to buy now, some with a different body color, different line stripes, and much more.
Whether you pair your Converse with a tracksuit, jeans and a t-shirt or, like Chalamet, with a suit, the options are endless.
