Timothée Chalamet (26) is not only one of the most sought-after actors in the world, but also a fashion icon for many. Consequently, it's no surprise that the 'Dune' star has received an honor that no one before him has been able to boast of. He is the first man to grace the cover of British 'Vogue' alone in the coming October issue - a first in the 106-year history of the magazine.
Previously, men had only landed on the cover when accompanied by women. For the first time, by the way, the Austrian actor Helmut Berger (78) alongside Marisa Berenson (75) in 1970. Since 2017 Edward Enninful (50) has been managing the fortunes of British 'Vogue' as editor-in-chief and he too initially struggled with the cover to leave alone to a man how he writes.This is how the 'Vogue' boss justified the historical moment
'Do men have a desperate need for more places to shine, I wondered. The answer is, of course, no.' At the same time, however, he wanted to abandon the old-fashioned view and way of thinking that fashion 'is strictly only designed for the gender you identify with. [...] Maybe I was just waiting for the right man.'
So this one has come with Timothée Chalamet. Thanks to the star, the history-making moment on paper feels 'effortless' and 'like no big deal.' The star is the 'incarnation of a modern man, both as an actor and as a person', who knows how to inspire men and women alike with his fashion sense. Enninful was 'thrilled and honored to have him as British Vogue's first male solo cover star.'
