Willy Wonka from Wonka (2023)

Quiet up and listen down! There’s a new Willy Wonka in town, played by Timothee Chalamet in the new movie-musical Wonka. The original story is from the 1964 novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl. This new story follows a younger Wonka before he becomes who we know today from the two film adaptations where he is played by Gene Wilder and then Johnny Depp. In this new whimsical film we follow his journey into becoming a chocolatier.

Wonka’ s costume has elements that are reminiscent of both Roald Dahl’s original art and previous films. He still wears iconic pieces like the purple velvet coat, brown top hat, and walking stick. In this new costume we also see the designer playing with layering and unique patterns like the brown vest layered on top of a white pinstriped shirt, over that another blue and yellow vest, and then the coat. He also wears high waisted trousers and a patterned scarf tucked into the vest.

Paul Atreides from Dune

Paul Atreides (played by Timothée Chalamet) is the main character of Dune.  Paul is heir to a powerful family, the son of Duke Leto and Lady Jessica.  Paul has visions of the future in his dreams, including many of Chani Kynes, a Fremen from the desert planet of Arrakis. On his home planet Caladan, Paul is often seen wearing dark military-style suits with band-style collars and knee-high boots.  When his family is attacked and he and his mother seek refuge with the Fremen, they wear stillsuits designed to recycle their sweat and tears into drinkable water.  Recreating the complex suits can be tricky, so it will help to be a little flexible with the design.  Layering padded motocross armor can help achieve a similar look, and don’t be afraid to use some spray paint to get the color right.  Cut the sleeves off a hooded cardigan to finish the look.

Laurie from Little Women

In Little Women, Theodore Laurence (better known as Laurie, and played by Timothee Chalamet) is Jo March’s best friend and would-be suitor.  Quite rich and rather spoiled, he grows into an immature man after being turned down by Jo, though he eventually marries her youngest sister Amy after the two spend time together in France.  Laurie’s clothing is expensive and fine, though he and Jo often share clothes in their childhood, which can sometimes leave him looking a bit haphazard.
