Hollywood’s newest “it” couple, Kylie Jenner and Timothée Chalamet, made their public debut as a romantic pair on the red carpet of the 2024 Golden Globe Awards Sunday night. The 25-year-old beauty mogul and 28-year-old actor arrived fashionably late to the ceremony, holding hands and sharing laughs before sealing their coupledom with a passionate kiss in front of photographers.
A Budding Romance Takes Center Stage
Rumors have swirled for months that Jenner and Chalamet were an item, though neither had confirmed the relationship. That changed in a big way at one of Hollywood’s glitziest events of the year.
The pair showed up to the Beverly Hilton nearly an hour after the start of the show, twinning in shimmery black outfits that seemed to signal they were ready for their time in the spotlight. Jenner wore a sheer, beaded gown with strategically placed embellishments, while Chalamet sported a sequined suit jacket sans shirt.
They posed for photos arm in arm, gazing adoringly into each other’s eyes. At one point Chalamet was caught on camera whispering “I love you” into Jenner’s ear, prompting giggles from the cosmetics entrepreneur. Later, as they made their way into the ceremony, Chalamet pulled Jenner in close and kissed her passionately, cementing their status as a Hollywood item.
Selena Gomez, who presented the award for Best Foreign Film that night, said she spotted the couple canoodling in their seats during commercial breaks.
“You could tell they were really into each other,” Gomez dished during an interview after the show. “They kept touching each other, holding hands, kissing. They looked so in love!”

Social Media Frenzy Over New “It” Couple
It didn’t take long for “Kylmethée” to start trending on Twitter in the wake of their PDA-filled Golden Globes date night.
Both Jenner and Chalamet have massive social media followings on their own. Combined, their coupling creates a publicity supernova the likes of which Hollywood hasn’t seen since the “Bennifer” days of Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez in the early 2000s.
Shortly after images and video hit the internet Sunday night showing Jenner and Chalamet kissing, Twitter lit up with reactions. Many fans expressed delight at this sexy young pairing:
“Kylie Jenner and Timothée Chalamet are what dreams are made of!! 😍🔥” wrote @stan_for_chalamet.
Others wondered if fame and image weren’t the real priorities:
“This seems like a PR relationship. I expected more from Timothée?” posted @moody_greta.
“The Kardashian kiss of death. RIP Timmy’s career” snarked @filmbro69.
No matter what side they took, one thing all the chatter made clear – people care about Jenner and Chalamet as a couple, for better or worse.
What It Means for Their Careers
With Chalamet coming off his Golden Globe win for Oppenheimer and gearing up to play Willy Wonka in a major studio prequel film, what does going public with a relationship mean for his red-hot career?
Some analysts we spoke to think it’s a savvy move:
“Attaching himself romantically to a celebrity as famous as Kylie Jenner will only make him more visible with mainstream audiences,” said Rachel Smithson, a publicity expert.
Critics argue the opposite – that her tabloid notoriety as a Kardashian could diminish his credibility as a “serious” actor.
“He took a big risk showing up with Kylie,” film publicist Daniel Wohl told us. “A lot of industry people don’t take her or that family seriously.”
It remains to be seen how his Chalamet’s association with Jenner will impact his career longterm. For now, at least, it seems to be generating the kind of constant publicity most celebrities only dream of.
As for Jenner, cosmetics insiders we spoke to think linking up with an on-the-rise A-lister like Chalamet makes shrewd business sense for the mogul and reality TV star.
“It gives her brand more credibility with higher-end audiences who maybe dismissed her products before,” explained Claire Ashbrook, editor of GlamBiz magazine. “The Hollywood connection draws positive attention.”
Below is a table showing recent growth trends for Jenner’s various business ventures:
|Followers (Jan 2023)
|Followers (Jan 2024)
| Kylie Cosmetics Instagram | 35M | 38M | +9%
| Kylie Skin Instagram | 7M | 10M | +43%
| Kylie Baby Instagram | 3M | 4M | +33%
“Timothée seems like a perfect publicity complement to what she’s building,” commented Ashbrook.
Whether the relationship lasts or not, attached to Chalamet has already proven lucrative for Jenner’s carefully crafted personal brands. Don’t expect this high-powered pairing to flame out anytime soon, if the dollar signs have anything to say about it!
What Comes Next
Jenner and Chalamet certainly seemed very cozy during Golden Globes after-parties as well. Photographers caught them canoodling at Netflix’s gala into the early morning hours.
We expect them to continue their public outings at other Hollywood events this awards season, cementing their status as showbiz royalty. Many predict an appearance together at March’s Oscars could be their next power move.
“They know all eyes will be on them on the red carpet,” commented celebrity stylist Phillip Bloch. “It’s great buzz for Timothée’s movies and Kylie’s brands. I’m sure whatever they wear will sell out immediately!”
Chalamet is already generating Oscar buzz for his work in Oppenheimer. With his girlfriend on his arm this award season, the internet’s boyfriend is clearly moving up in the world.
As for what happens behind closed doors, that’s anyone’s guess. But Jenner does have experience dating high-profile celebrities like rapper Travis Scott, with whom she shares two children.
One thing’s for certain – whether romantic staycations in matching designer sweatsuits, glamorous vacations on chartered yachts, or gazing lovingly into each other’s eyes atop more red carpets this year – we expect “Kylmethée” to continue serving major PDA in the months ahead!
