Timothée Chalamet is driving Twitter wild as he traipses through the Venice Film Festival being chic and cheerful. The Oscar-nominated actor is in attendance for the world premiere of Netflix’s The King, in which he stars as King Henry V of England (A.K.A. Hal). He’s been an absolute delight, engaging with fans and strutting out in fierce and fancy fashion that has Twitter atwitter.
A bit of background behind the look: This stunningly tailored suit is designed by Haider Ackermann, who not only regularly dresses the dashing ingedude but also appeared on the Venice red carpet alongside him. (Pictured above in the header, Ackermann is on the left. Chalamet’s friend—and fan—Kid Cudi is on the right.)

And while the reviews for The King are mixed, Chalamet and this suit got a slew of raves.

Timothée Chalamet was asked how he felt being at the Venice Film Festival and he responded “I feel like Lady Gaga on the boat” pic.twitter.com/stIEEwk1Ox— Gaga Media ⭐️ (@GagaMediaDotNet) September 2, 2019
Aside from this perfect soundbite, Chalamet also got close to the crowds who came to clamor over him. On Twitter, there are plenty of shots of excited fans getting pictures, autographs, and hugs from the star. But the most astounding interaction was with a fan who showed Chalamet her Call Me By Your Name tattoo and received a kiss right on it!
