If Chalamet’s love of – and influence on – fashion is already well established, Russell has proved herself an industry favorite in the making in recent weeks. Take the fact that the 28-year-old opened Jonathan Anderson’s spring/summer 2023 offering for Loewe in a velvet Renaissance-inspired dress. “I always had this vision of her opening the show – she’s a really good friend of mine – and I just thought there was something about this decision that was about the future of acting and performance,” Anderson explained after her turn on the runway. More recently in New York, meanwhile? The Vancouver native channelled Audrey Hepburn in a strapless Prada gown and diamond Cartier headpiece.
As for her off-duty wardrobe: “It’s either throwing on everything that’s extra large and baggy, where all you can see is my head, or it’s pieces that are super tight and feminine with revealing details – I like both ends of the spectrum,” Russell shared with Vogue. “I rarely buy new clothes, as I invest in a lot of pieces from vintage dealers and I love Prada, Yohji Yamamoto, Comme des Garçons and Tom Ford-era Gucci.” Sustainably minded and willing to take risks? She’s won us over already.
