The appearance of Timothee Chalamet in New York in the company of Martin Scorsese has set many alarm bells ringing among fans of the star of Dunes but also among fans of the seventh art. What are the young Oscar nominee and the legendary director of Taxi Driver? The images that portray the unprecedented couple, first inside an apartment with large windows and then on the street, don’t explain much or allow certain hypotheses to be advanced. In the environment and on social media, however, there is talk of a commercialone spot for a luxury fashion brand and many, including the authoritative W Magazineare ready to bet on Chanel of which Chalamet could be the formidable new global ambassador.

Chalamet, the golden boy of the fashion system

A few hours after the appearance of Timothée Chalamet in Manhattan, intent on absorbing the directives of Martin Scorsese, everything is online a plethora of scenarios with the protagonist of Bones & All in the role of new golden boy of the fashion system.
Chalamet, who is a legend among the very young even off the set (and who has established himself over the years as a considerable style icon), he has never really considered fashion as a field in which to deploy his charm and talent and, given that he is practically a regular guest at the fashion shows, he may have finally developed a certain conviction to take the field as a leading protagonist .

The commercial for Bleau de Chanel?

Friend and inspirer of the found effects of many stylists (one above all, Haider Ackermann who created many looks for him including the amazing one with red backless top flaunted at Venice Film Festival 2022), the actor is known for his style extravagant and luxuriousfrom the strong sporting vocation and especially, genderless.
If on the red carpet he loves to amaze everyone with shimmering tailored suits worn even without a shirt (see the 2021 Oscars outfit), here the star captures attention with a simple white tank top ribbed, ultra basic look that (perhaps) could confirm the hypothesis of a job for a masculine perfume, Blue de Chaneliconic Chanel fragrance with a very ancient history, which has become a bestseller in its category in recent years also thanks to globally resonant advertising campaigns with high-profile names.

Gaspard Ulliel, first testimonial of Chanel men’s perfume

After the photos taken of Scorsese and Chalamet in an interior of New York, the two took to the streets to film new sequences. The actor, in a polka dot shirt and then with a brightly colored fur sweatshirt, he seemed taken in his role which, however, is still difficult to decipher.
If Chalamet becomes the next face of Chanel Blue, it would become the Gaspard Ulliel’s successor, testimonial of the fragrance for twelve years, from 2010 to 2022, the year of his tragic and untimely death. The French actor, who had been the first face of men’s perfume in the 2000s, was the protagonist of many designer commercials, signed by James Gray, Steve McQueen and from the same Scorsese who had directed a commercial for Chanel Blue in 2010. Chanel remembered Ulliel during the brand’s show in January 2022 one month after the fatal accident involving the actor and model. On that occasion, the white camellias, symbol of the brand, were tinged with the blue of the perfume bottle for the latest release.
