Timothée Chalamet Becomes 'Wonka' With Chocolatier-Ready Press Tour Looks

The "Wonka" promotional tour promises to be a fashion-filled journey, with the always cool Timothée Chalamet leading the charge.

It started off strong in Tokyo, where the actor emulated the titular role without straying too far from the leather-leaning, more relaxed looks the star typically wears. Then, in London, Chalamet further embodied Willy Wonka's flair for the dramatic in an Alexander McQueen suit with a train.

As we inch closer to what's bound to be a somewhat confusingly pleasant experience of a film, we're taking notes on the leading man's best, most Wonka-fied looks, below. (Keep your eyes here for updates.)

Timothée Chalamet wears Cactus Plant Flea Market in New York on Nov. 12

To close out his hosting gig at "Saturday Night Live," Chalamet went for a very literal approach to "Wonka" fashion, wearing a sweatshirt that read "Oompa" on the front and "Loompa" on the back. He layered a vintage purple sherpa jacket from Levi's over the hoodie, and completed the look with Rick Owens high-top sneakers.

Timothée Chalamet wears Avellano in Narita on Nov. 18

For a very "Matrix"-inspired look, Chalamet wore a long leather coat as he arrived in Japan for the Tokyo premiere of "Wonka". The actor kept things simple and monochromatic underneath, wearing a trouser-sweatpant blend from Loewe, a plain black tank and blacked-out sunglasses from Jacques Marie Mage.

Timothée Chalamet wears Prada in Tokyo on Nov. 20

Chalamet wore a custom matching lavender shirt and trousers from Prada, translating Willy Wonka's iconic quirky style into a red carpet moment — a look seemingly inspired by the label's patent leather-heavy Fall 2022 Menswear collection. The Oscar nominee paired the sleek look with glossy white round-toed Chelsea boots from Bottega Veneta and stacked silver jewelry from Cartier on his hands and neck.

Timothée Chalamet wears Alexander McQueen in London on Nov. 27

Chalamet wore a pinstriped suit with a subtle peplum shape at the waist that falls into a short train at the back — plucked from Alexander McQueen's Spring 2024 menswear collection — at a press junket in London. He finished it off with the brand's Wander Lace-Up Boots, dark square sunglasses and his typical stack of Cartier jewels.

Timothée Chalamet wears Tom Ford in London on Nov. 28

For the world premiere of the "Wonka" film in London, Chalamet chose a sugar plum-colored, velvet suit from Tom Ford's Spring 2024 collection — opting for trousers rather than the mini shorts seen on the runway. The star wore only one thing underneath his blazer: a chunky white gold Cartier necklace with onyx, opals, tourmalines and emeralds all around. Brown leather boots completed the look.

Timothée Chalamet wears Tom Ford in London on Nov. 29

The gold mesh look he wore in London suggests Chalamet's a big fan of Tom Ford's Spring 2024 collection, given that it's his second selection from it in two days. The actor opted to pair the long-sleeved top with black trousers (rather than the gold, fringe mini skirt seen on the runway), black Chelsea boots and minimal jewelry (just a few rings).

To bring "Wonka" to Paris, Chalamet went for yet another Tom Ford Spring 2024 moment (the third one on this press tour alone). He wore a not-quite-but-almost-see-through white netted top, adapted from a long-sleeved two-piece dress sent down Peter Hawkings' debut runway in September, with black skinny-fit trousers and boots. Either he struck a deal with the brand to outfit him throughout the promotional cycle, or he's really, really feeling the brand's new creative direction — both wins in our books. No sleeves, no problem.
