Eiza González Is More Than Timothée Chalamet’s Latest Flame

Eiza González

Nothing says summer like a new celebrity couple. Love finds a way—even in the midst of a pandemic. 2020’s latest portmanteau-worthy pairing was introduced yesterday via images of Timothée Chalamet and Eiza González enjoying a blissful vacation in Mexico. The Call Me By Your Name star’s heartthrob status has made his every outfit, haircut, and bagel run newsworthy, but Chalamet remains coy about his personal life. The reveal of his relationship with González came as a surprise to many, given that Chalamet was last rumored to be dating his The King co-star, Lily-Rose Depp. While it’s unsurprising to see two attractive performers canoodling, the reveal sparked new interest in rising star, González. Her name may be new to some, but long before she made tabloid headlines, the actor proved herself a talented and stylish addition to young Hollywood’s talent roster.

The daughter of ‘80s runway star and Mexico’s Next Top Model judge, Glenda Reyna, González was born into the entertainment world. As a teen, she cut her teeth acting in telenovelas and dramas starring in Nickelodeon’s Spanish language series, Sueña Conmigo and Lola, érase una vez, a modernized Cinderella story. She was a household name in Mexico by the age of 20, thanks to her TV hits and two albums, and headed to California in 2013 to make her way in Hollywood. Roles in high-profile films like Baby Driver and Alita: Battle Angel soon followed as did a spot in the record-breaking Fast and Furious franchise.

Throughout it, all González has displayed a sultry style sensibility that set her apart from her peers. Avant-garde labels and deconstructed fashion have become calling cards for many young actors, but González has gone in the opposite direction as a fan of classic glamour. She gravitates towards body-conscious silhouettes on the red carpet and unapologetically feminine pieces for day. Case in point: during a press tour for superhero flick, Bloodshot, González displayed the hallmarks of her look on many red carpets and events. For the film’s Los Angeles premiere, she and stylist Elizabeth Saltzman went for full glam in a red and black Christopher Kane gown that was ever-so-slightly transparent. A trip to Jimmy Kimmel Live that week necessitated a double-denim Brandon Maxwell jumpsuit.

At big ticket events like the annual Vanity Fair Oscar party or Met Gala, González prefers to go for custom designs. Her glossy Galvan column gown at this year’s VF bash made a statement without feeling overdone. Likewise, the goth-y cape and black sequin look Prabal Gurung created for her trip to 2018’s ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’ fête delivered high drama.

Whether or not González and Chalamet become the next it-couple remains to be seen, but they’ve managed to captivate the internet with a hint at their summer romance. In a moment when happy news is in short supply, their relationship feels like a welcome respite. Sure, the idea of them arriving on a red carpet in his and hers Haider Ackermann is catnip for fashion lovers, but even sans Timmy, González is a major style star to watch.
