Tilda Swinton Page 1
The actress has picked up an interesting new place to rest her head. And you might just be able to watch her do it.
We were so, so hoping to see Tilda Swinton arrive at last night’s “David Bowie Is” exhibit opening decked out in her Thin White Duke or Ziggy Stardust finest, but alas, the rumors that she would be impersonating the pop star turned out to be false, and the actress turned up on the red carpet at the Victoria and Albert Museum looking, well, like Tilda Swinton. Not that that’s a far cry from Bowie, mind you. See her Haider Ackermann suit, check out the other chic Brits’ getups, and get a peek inside the exhibit after the jump.
There are few people on this earth who cut a more distinctive figure than David Bowie, but if anyone can impersonate the icon, it is, without question, Tilda Swinton. The otherworldly actress has been styled like Bowie in so many fashion spreads we’re beginning to lose count, emulated some of his signature ‘dos, appeared alongside the musician in his most recent music video, and claimed that they share the same “planetary DNA.” Tomorrow, rumor out of London has it that she is going to take this cosmic connection a step further and show up at the gala opening of the Victoria and Albert Museum’s hotly-anticipated “David Bowie Is” retrospective dressed as the superstar himself.
Tilda Swinton has been tapped to front the campaign for Chanel‘s super fancy Métiers d’Art collection, and as usual, we’ve got a sneak peek right here.
Tune in with us to assess the style choices of Hollywood’s major players at tonight’s Golden Globes ceremony.
Two posts about Cannes red carpet fashion in one day? Indeed!
And we’re off! CANNES FASHUNZ, YOU GUYS.
Despite the small number of fashion folk on the Time‘s 100 Most Influential People list this year, last night’s red carpet was quite stylish.
We’re still upset that we won’t be seeing Tilda Swinton on the red carpet at the Oscars, but we will get to see her wear cool clothes while she promotes her new film, We Need To Talk About Kevin, on shows like The Daily Show.
Sometimes, not even Prada or Rodarte can save a red carpet. Case in point: last night’s Critics Choice Awards, which featured a host of A-list style stars and celebs wearing no shortage of high-wattage designer duds on the dreariest, most shoddily constructed grey carpet we’ve ever seen.
It’s officially awards season, which means that between now and March, there’s basically a red carpet event every other night. Last night, style stars like Emma Stone, Tilda Swinton, Rooney Mara, and Chloe Moretz (among many, many others) stepped out for the National Board of Review Awards Gala in everything from Miu Miu to J. Mendel. But with the Golden Globes just around the corner, who’s setting the style bar the highest?
Tilda Swinton is an awesome, iconic alien. Her look is fully chic, somewhat unsettling, and never ever boring. She also happens to be W‘s weird and wonderful August cover girl.
Another day, another steady stream of celebs walking the red carpet in Cannes. Last night Diane Kruger, Tilda Swinton, Aishwarya Rai, and Mia Wasikowska stepped out in show-stopping looks by some of fashion’s biggest names. We’ll show our hand and dub Tilda’s Haider Ackermann ensemble our favorite of the night — but which was yours?
The BAFTA Awards are the British version of the Oscars (BAFTA stands for British Academy of Film and Television Arts, by the way). As such, the show’s red carpet can be quite a glamorous spectacle. Though there were some definite hits (Emma Stone, you go girl!), there weren’t too many looks we went crazy for. Even Styleite fave Emma Watson kind of disappointed!
Here’s the thing. While some celebs play it safe on the red carpet, others understand that an event like the Golden Globes is the perfect opportunity to make a statement. And whether that statement is, “I’m too old and too good an actor to mess about with gowns that are absurdly luxurious” or “Most men’s tuxedos are just plain boring, so I’m going to mix it up” — or even “I’m wearing two different colored shoes and there’s not a damn thing you can do about it” — the five actors in this slideshow made big splashes. And they looked really good doing it. And the best part? Some of them weren’t even nominated!
Between all the brouhaha surround New York Fashion Week, Fashion’s Night Out, and the Toronto Film Festival, one wouldn’t be remiss in forgetting all about Venice. But contrary to popular belief, the Venice Film Festival has been trucking along at a very fashionable rate, complete with today’s closing ceremony. Now that it’s finally over, we’ve collected our thoughts — and our judgements! — and put together a gallery of what we think are some of Venice’s most fashionable moments. Who do you think was best dressed?
For a movie with a soaring, emotionally stirring plot, it makes sense that the costumes would need to be clean and a little minimal, so as not to distract from the plot. So we were excited to learn that the master of clean minimalism, designer Jil Sander, designed the costumes for Tilda Swinton‘s new movie I Am Love, which will debut in the US on June 18.
V Magazine recently sat down with the actress for next month’s issue to talk about her newest film, slated for the silver screen in June 2010. I Am Love, directed by Luca Guadagnino, is a “labor of love” that Swinton has apparently been working on for over a decade. And in true Swinton manner, the character is not only a powerful woman, but a fashionable one.
