As we approach the final furlong of Venice Film Festival, it's a good moment to take stock of who has upped the style stakes at the 76th installment of the cinematic celebration. 

Adam Driver has demonstrated a watch that will work for any occasion, Brad Pitt triumphed by keeping things old school, and Rami Malek showed how to make the short-sleeve shirt work beyond summer. 

But this afternoon, Call Me By Your Name star, Hollywood upstart, French-speaking, native New Yorker, and general fashion disrupter, Timothée Chalamet, blew everyone else out the water while arriving, fittingly, by boat at the Sala Grande. 

Chalamet, whose past style home-runs include a bejewelled harness at the Golden Globes, and a full, blood red Louis Vuitton suit, has repeatedly shown he's not afraid to experiment with shape, color, and texture.

Chalamet’s look today further evidences how his taking risks pay off: opting for shiny gray jacket with asymmetric fastening and matching trousers from French designer Haider Ackermann. The color blocking broken up by a strip of blue hemming his gray shirt underneath and a pair of chunky black boots.

Granted it's easier to do so while cruising into Venice with hordes of fans waiting, but Chalamet sweetly waving and grinning, as well as pulling out his own camera to capture the photographers, afforded him a sense of not taking himself too seriously, crucial when wearing something that could come across a touch Derek Zoolander on the wrong man.

The Academy Award nominee is in Venice for the premiere of his forthcoming film, The King, a Shakespeare adaptation in which he plays young Prince Hal, the monarch coronated in the late 1300s after his brother was killed in battle. 

Much like the trailer for his other forthcoming film, Little Women, showed, the real star of both releases is Timmy's hair: bowl-cut and brooding in one, floppy and lovelorn in the other.

The last breaths of 2019 looked poise to make it the year of the Chalamet once again. All hail The King.
