Best friends Saoirse Ronan and Timothee Chalamet

Lainey has crowned Timothee Chalamet and Lily-Rose Depp as the reigning It Couple of Young Hollywood. I’m not trying to mess with that. I’m OK with Saoirse Ronan and Timothee Chalamet just being best friends forever. They worked together on Lady Bird, of course, and now they’re starring in the new Little Women and they’ve got a Wes Anderson project in the works. They’re this generation’s Leo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, except neither one of them is a douche who only dates models half his age. 

If Timothee was going to make his relationship debut with Lily-Rose AND he wasn’t going to give us any shots with Saoirse (haven’t found any so far), the least he could do is show up in a bedazzled harness. He’s so generous. The best thing about this Timothee look is that it came with mystery and intrigue. Is this glitter harness really even a harness? Sparkly suspenders? 

Here’s the clarification from Vanessa Friedman of the New York Times: 

Ah, of course, an “embroidered bib.” Apparently, this clarification was important to Timothee. He’s been open about being a fan of Virgil Abloh, the creative director of Louis Vuitton menswear. This is from Virgil’s latest collection. I LOVE that Timothee chose this look. I love that he’s probably just getting started when it comes to bold fashion choices, and I love that his best friend Saoirse’s red carpet game is just as good.

Saoirse Ronan’s custom Gucci isn’t dissimilar to the dress that made her Duana’s Best Dressed at the Oscars in 2016.  It’s got the plunging neck. It’s got the similar silhouette. It would be tired if Saoirse didn’t wait two years to bust it out. She chooses her moments to bust out this particular Sexy Saoirse wisely. Since we don’t see that Saoirse often, it saves her from being the indie Sofia Vergara. Apologies to Saoirse for that comparison. This dress doesn’t deserve that. 

If you need me, I’ll be scouring the internet for shots of Saoirse and Timothee hitting the after-parties with his mom.
