Timothée Chalamet wears sweatpants and Converse to 2021 Met Gala

Timothée Chalamet could go from the Met Gala to a Zoom meeting.

While the “Dune” star looked elegant from the waist up on Monday’s red carpet, his all-white ensemble was casual upon closer inspection.

Chalamet teamed his Haider Ackermann satin tuxedo and Cartier brooch with sweatpants and Converse.

“Whenever I visit America, I am always struck by the wonderful clash of uptown and downtown cultures, of music and sports, and all of this energy just mixing together,” Ackermann told Vogue of the outfit.

He continued, “I wanted to create something inspired by this energy — a fusion of street style and sleek tailoring, to create a more dynamic, deliberate silhouette, while still respecting the dress codes of the event.”

Chalamet’s shoes were, in fact, made for walking, as the star hoofed it 10 blocks to the Met Gala rather than taking a car.

Practical or not, fans went crazy on Twitter over his laid-back footwear choice. One tweeted, “Timothee Chalamet wearing the converse on the met gala red carpet…. he understood the assignment,” while another asked, “i have the same pair of converse can i get invited to the met gala?”

Others were less impressed with the look, with one person comparing the actor to a “waiter.”

Chalamet is co-hosting this year’s gala – the first one he’s ever attended – alongside Billie Eilish, Naomi Osaka and Amanda Gorman.

Eilish arrived on the red carpet shortly after the “Call Me By Your Name” star, stunning in an Oscar de la Renta gown with a dramatic train.
