Call Me By Your Name Screenwriter James Ivory Wears Shirt with Timothée Chalamet's Face to the Oscars
The legendary writer/producer is nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay for Call Me By Your Name and paid homage to the film's star, Timothée Chalamet, with his outfit
Stars may have just started walking down the 2018 Academy Awards red carpet, but producer and screenwriter James Ivory pretty much has already shut the whole place down, thanks to his amazing (and one-of-a-kind) Timothée Chalamet-themed shirt.
The 89-year-old, who’s nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay for Call Me By Your Name, arrived wearing a classic tux complete with a graphic portraying the film’s leading man emblazoned onto his button-down.
Trying to place where you’ve seen that pensive-looking Chalamet before? It’s actually a perfect replica of a still from the film.
We’ve seen a lot of stars wearing other stars on their clothing before (see here), but we’d say wearing a fellow celebrity’s likeness in your black tie attire is going to be pretty hard to top.
And if you’re wondering if Ivory has plans on re-wearing this one-of-a-kind shirt, he announced on the carpet that he’s going to give the custom design to Chalamet afterwards.

Ivory, a four-time Oscar nominee, has previously been up for Best Director for Howards End, A Room with a View and The Remains of the Day and may break a major record tonight: If he wins for Best Adapted Screenplay, he will be the oldest-ever Oscar winner!
But no matter what the outcome is tonight, he’s already going home a winner.
The 2018 Oscars ceremony will be held at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center on March 4 and will be televised live on ABC at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.
