Bummer for the men of Hollywood, but it’s just true: The Oscars are all about an epic gown. It’s hard to stand out when you’re wearing a tuxedo, unless you’re Adam Rippon, who turned up to the Academy Awards on Sunday wearing a leather harness.
Or, apparently, if you’re director and screenwriter James Ivory, who is nominated in the best adapted screenplay category for Call Me By Your Name and who showed up to the red carpet with Timothée Chalamet’s face painted on his white shirt. (Chalamet is a best actor nominee for his work in Call Me By Your Name. He possesses the best head of hair in America. He is 22 years old, so it’s okay to have a crush on him? Everyone does. You do, too!!)
Twitter erupted in delight at the sight of Ivory’s shirt. Even better, LA Times reporter Tre’vell Anderson reports that Ivory intends to give it to Chalamet later tonight. Coworkers are so cute.
Unfortunately, the shirt is custom, i.e. not for easy purchase on Amazon; it was painted by artist Andrew Mania. Doesn’t mean you can’t DIY your own! Is anyone here good at drawing?
