Fans Think Kylie Jenner’s Naked Dress Has This Connection to Timothée Chalamet
Kylie Jenner stars as Jean Paul Gaultier’s cyber mermaid for the fashion house’s Flowers Spring/Summer campaign, which spotlights aquatic-like prints by artist Jean-Vincent Simonet, translating them into liquid florals across formfitting mesh wear, swimsuits, and lingerie. As a muse for the brand, the 25-year-old beauty mogul also worked with the couture team (headed by designer Haider Ackermann) for the 2023 Met Gala, where she wore both a colorblock gown and sculptural corseted number to walk the famous steps and attend an afterparty.
Directed by Florence Tétier and lensed by Elizaveta Porodina, the Flowers creative direction led Jenner to transform to fit the maison’s virtual universe, flaunting long, platinum blond hair, bleached eyebrows, and rosy-pink cheeks with a glitter effect. As she swims through a river of colorful blooms and branches in a metallic woven knit dress, perches atop a light-up stage in a striped body-morphing maxi, and glares into the camera in a series of matching skirt sets, Jenner takes on her role as cyber mermaid with ease – as shown in a behind-the-scenes video she posted on TikTok.
Those tracking Jenner’s relationship status are linking her reported love interest, Timothée Chalamet to these recent sartorial ventures, as 27-year-old Chalamet is also known to have a close relationship with Ackermann. And since Jenner wore Haider Ackermann’s designs for Jean Paul Gaultier to the Met Gala, and is now working with Jean Paul Gaultier herself, fans are speculating that Chalamet made the initial connection.
Jenner celebrated her new JPG partnership by matching with her daughter Stormi Webster in 2000s-inspired outfits from the collection. The duo stepped out for the brand’s cocktail party at The Webster in NYC just one day after the Met Gala on Tuesday, May 2.
