Timothée Chalamet has sent the internet into overdrive (once again) after stealing the Venice Film Festival red carpet in a shimmering, backless halter top and matching trousers. 

Chalamet rocked up to the event wearing a custom ruby red halter top and co-ordinating trousers, created for him by friend and designer Haider Ackermann – a name he has collaborated with many times before to create other equally iconic fashion moments. 

He was there for the world premiere of his latest film, Luca Guadagnino’s cannabalistic horror Bones and All, but many fans found themselves more than just a little distracted by Chalamet’s show-stopping serve, saying the 26-year-old had simply 'won'.

“The star of the Venice red carpet this year, like every year... #timothèechalamet,” one tweeted. 

Someone else said: “Timothée Chalamet always WINS. Backless top at the Venice Film Festival.” 

A third joked: “Timothée Chalamet looks like an ex-wife who won big in the divorce. Good for her.” 

Another said: "Timothée Chalamet’s backless outfit just put the ‘nice’ in 'Venice Film Festival’."

A few people, meanwhile, noted his unlikely resemblance to the Chronicles of Narnia’s topless Mr Tumnus in his red scarf... And they're not wrong.

And it wasn't just Chalamet's appearance that the crowds at Venice were hot on, as his new film also went on to become a huge hit - as evident from the 8.5-minute standing ovation for Guadagnino.

Chalamet stars alongside Taylor Russell as two cannabalistic lovers as they embark on a cross-country trip, with the likes of Mark Rylance, Michael Stuhlbarg, André Holland, Chloë Sevigny, Jessica Harper and David Gordon Green also boasting supporting roles.

In a recent interview with Deadline, Chalamet spoke about how the film ties in to themes of being young and 'intensely judged'.

He explained: “It was a relief to play characters who are wrestling with an internal dilemma absent the ability to go on Reddit or Twitter or Instagram or TikTok and figure out where they fit in. Without casting judgment on that, because if you can find your tribe there, then all the power. But I think it’s tough to be alive now. I think societal collapse is in the air, it smells like it, and without being pretentious, I hope that’s why these movies matter because that’s the role of the artist is to shine a light on what’s going on.”

Bones and All is released in the US on 23 November.
