Earlier additions to the “Web Obsession Corridor of Fame” embody Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, Anthony Mackie and Sebastian Stan, and Zendaya and Tom Holland (who at the moment are reportedly relationship). The July 12 premiere of Wes Anderson’s The French Dispatch on the 2021 Cannes Movie Competition marked the induction of social media’s new favorite non-couple: Timothée Chalamet and Tilda Swinton.

On the movie’s screening, Chalamet’s silver Tom Ford go well with punctuated by white accents was a nod to the decadence of ’80s glamour. Swinton selected a cropped, pink satin bolero blazer and high with an orange floor-length skirt by frequent collaborator Haider Ackermann. By no means one to overlook a possibility for theatrical aptitude, Swinton added inexperienced sequin sleeves.
Sure, the style was fabulous. Sure, we love all of the androgynous style moments Chalamet and Swinton have given us over time. However what made this Cannes purple carpet so particular was the photographs that got here out of it. These two are so clearly followers of one another that it’s arduous to not be charmed by their mutual adoration.
