Timothee Chalamet thrilled a 19-year-old fan when he wore a T-shirt she designed on the red carpet at the National Board of Review gala in New York last week.
The King actor, 24, sported the white T-shirt featuring embroidery of a hand throwing up the peace sign as he posed for photographs, which caught the attention of fan and Michigan-based student Avery Warsaw – who sent him the piece.
Speaking to the New York Post’s gossip column Page Six, she revealed she learnt to embroider the design in 2018, and created a rainbow-coloured version for the actor in honour of his role in LGBTQ coming-of-age flick Call Me By Your Name.
“He’s an amazing actor, but at the same time he’s very intelligent and well-spoken, silly and kind-hearted, stylish and individualistic,” she said.
Avery, who was inspired by a previous fan who gifted an Eiffel tower keychain to the actor, which he was later spotted carrying, gave her design to Timothee’s agent at a December screening of his new movie Little Women, and she didn’t have to wait long to see the star modelling her creation.
“It’s so cool because I look up to him for fashion inspiration and now he’s wearing a shirt that I made. It’s crazy,” she added.
“@RealChalamet I MADE THIS SHIRT,” she excitedly posted on Twitter. “SO GLAD TO SEE YOU WEARING IT AHH LOOKS SO GOOD.”
The actor completed the look with a white Stella McCartney jacket with black lapels and matching trousers. Avery is now selling the T-shirt via Instagram and Twitter for $35 (£27), plus an additional $10 (£8) for shipping.
