Timothée Chalamet walked the Met Gala 2021 red carpet in £70 trainers, showing us that celebs are just like us regular folk. Apart from, er, all of the fame, status and money, that is.

While some stars including AOC and Cara Delevingne made bold statements with their outfits, Timothée opted to prove that comfort is key.

The co-chair for the 2021 Met Gala wore an all-white suit by Haider Ackermann, with details including balloon trousers and a blazer with a black contrast lapel.

However the Call Me By Your Name actor paired this with a street-style staple – a pair of hi-top Converse trainers – to complete the look.

The theme for the first part of the annual event was “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion”, and with the Chuck Taylor All Stars he couldn’t get more American.

The popular Converse footwear debuted back in the 1920s and are still as popular around the globe today. Plus his pair didn’t break the bank.

He wore the Off-White Chuck 70 High Sneakers which were created by Converse in collaboration with designer Virgil Abloh’s brand Off White.

They have a price mark of £70 which is fairly cheap compared to the usual footwear of guests at the Met Gala, and fans can buy them to replicate his style.

The hi-top trainers which are available to buy from ssense.com at that price mark, and are made from a cream canvas material and feature the red and blue stripe along the rubber sole.

Chalamet changed up his trainers slightly as he covered up the iconic black Converse emblem on the side with a white circle.

Timothée was a co-chair for the 2021 Met Gala, alongside Billie Eilish, Naomi Osaka and Amanda Gorman and was snapped alongside some famous faces.

This includes Lil Nas X, and it was the Call Me By Your Name crossover that fans have been waiting for.

To shop the exact trainers worn by Timothée Chalamet head to ssense.com or you can buy other hi-tops from the official Converse website.
