AceShowbiz - Timothee Chalamet dressed accordingly for "Wonka" premiere event in Tokyo on Monday, November 20. At the event, the 27-year-old actor gave an appropriate nod to his character Willy Wonka through his fashion choice.
While attending the event, Timothee opted to copy the famous purple coat of the Road Dahl novel's iconic character. He graced the red carpets in a lavender leather Prada shirt that he paired with matching trousers and chunky white Chelsea boots.
The "Dune: Part Two" star left his shirt unbuttoned, while his collar popped up in an Elvis Presley-like style. Completing his look, Timothee donned a chunky diamond chain as well as three gleaming diamond rings.
In one picture that circulated online, Timothee could be seen posing on the red carpet alongside his co-stars, including Hugh Grant. Timothee also made use of his Instagram account to share a better look at his look for the night. "WONKA TOKYO," so the "Little Women (2019)" star wrote in the caption.
Fans had mixed responses to Timothee's shiny style. "U invented the color lilac babe," one fan gushed over him in a comment. "Purple slay," another raved. An official account of Instagram also left a comment underneath the post, saying, "You invented purple."
Someone else poked fun at Timothee's look, writing, "oh lilac-rubber-elvis-wonka." One other said, "Literally looking like oompah loompa," while another fan commented, "looking good in that purple overall. he looks like a budget Loki."
In "Wonka", Timothee portrays a young Willy Wonka. The movie explores how the character meets the Oompa Loompas and creates his chocolate empire ahead of the events in "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory". The movie also stars Olivia Colman and Rowan Atkinson.
Prior to the premiere event, Timothee made headlines for channeling looks from his girlfriend Kylie Jenner's new clothing line Khy. The actor slipped into a long black latex trench coat by Avelanno when he arrived in Japan on Saturday, November 18.
