New York City, NY – Rumors of a budding romance between Kylie Jenner and Timothée Chalamet have been circulating for months, fueled by late-night airport sightings, TikTok videos of Chalamet’s car entering the Kardashian clan’s Hidden Hills enclave, and Jenner donning a custom gown by Chalamet’s friend Haider Ackermann at the Met Gala in May. The rumor mill was certainly working overtime.
However, at Beyoncé’s recent Renaissance concert stop in Los Angeles, 27-year-old Chalamet and Jenner seemingly confirmed their relationship with a tender embrace and a kiss, witnessed by the entire 50,000-strong audience. Following this public display of affection, they attended a New York Fashion Week dinner celebrating the inaugural collaboration between Ackermann and skincare guru Augustinus Bader. So far, everything appears official.
Yesterday, the cosmetics mogul and the Wonka actor continued their string of public outings, this time at the US Open in New York City. Their love story reached new heights, not just through captured kisses but by sporting somewhat matching outfits. Jenner opted for a casual look in jeans and a tee, while Chalamet donned a hoodie and grey slacks. Both shielded their eyes with ’90s-inspired blackout sunglasses: Jenner sporting her go-to Bottega Veneta shades, and Chalamet rocking Celine. While their outfits may not have been extravagant, they subtly conveyed a lot. Matching sunglasses in the realm of celebrity couples might just signify love, right?
Couples coordinating their attire isn’t a new concept, but it’s certainly a testament to a fresh commitment. The Kardashian-Jenner clan, known for their fashion flair, excels at this. Earlier this year, Kendall Jenner and Bad Bunny reportedly confirmed their relationship by wearing matching snakeskin boots. Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker often harmonize their looks, whether in his ‘n’ hers Dolce and Gabbana ensembles or matching band tees. Kim Kardashian, historically, synchronized her style with her ex-husband Kanye in various striking outfits.
Despite not officially confirming their relationship, Chalamet and Jenner may have let their sunglasses do the talking, letting the world in on their romance.
