Oh Tilda!

I love Tilda Swinton. Apart from being one of my favourite actresses, I absolutely love her style!

She is a lady who was made for fashion- her unusual but striking looks and unconventional approach to style have made her a trendsetter, never a follower. Her statuesque carriage and her intuitive grasp of glamour have made her a powerful presence in the world of entertainment.

With her ability to play a multitude of roles, Tilda Swinton is a force in the acting world, being able to transition seamlessly in everything from the Archangel Gabriel in ‘Constantine‘ to Karen Crowder in ‘Michael Clayton‘ (for which she won a BAFTA and Oscar) and Elizabeth Abbott in the ‘Curious Case of Benjamin Button‘. She is widely recognized for delivering wide and multi-layered portrayals, her career is one any actress can rightfully envy.

Tilda Swinton is flawless.

I have loved her in almost every role that she has played, and I admire how she has never strayed far from her art-house film roots- despite stepping into more mainstream roles with the progression of her career.

Fashion wise, Tilda has a simple philosophy- art was her start and is a major interest, so her ensembles are viewed as wearable art. From wearing head-to-toe couture for editorial shoots (something not everyone can do), to her Red Carpet looks and even her street-style, Tilda Swinton has always stayed true to form.

Her style is best described as unorthodox luxury, with androgynous and futuristic elements being frequently incorporated into her overall looks. Her angular features, flawless porcelain skin and edgy pompadour have made her a favourite with designers such as Viktor and Rolf, Jean Paul Gautier and Haider Ackermann. She has been the face of Scottish luxury brand Pringle of Scotland and has starred in Chanel’s 2012-2013 Métiers d’Art Collection.

At 53 she seems almost ageless and her inimitable looks have, if anything, improved with age. Her fierce command of style is a refreshing departure from the typical ultra-sexy, feminine looks that have become the norm in Hollywood today.
