All hail the high priestess of fashion that is forward. Tilda Swinton is in the house, y’all.
After what seemed like an eternity (we last saw her at the BAFTAs) Tilda was head guest in the front row at Lanvin Fall 2012 show in Paris this weekend. Having endured a Swinton-less Oscars, seeing her odd beauty and f*ck-off cool hair was a breath of fresh air, we sh-t you not.
And she brought it. She has a profound ability to select styles that aren’t bang-on androgynous but straddle a fine line between femininity and androgyny. This Lanvin draped gown she wore to the show on Friday night is a perfect example of a predominantly mininalist style with undoubted feminine aspects. Tilda is more other-wordly than androgynous. She’s so amazing, she can’t be human.There is an alien fem-bot queen in there and she’s not afraid to show it.
Tilda doesn’t care about sexy, in a Lopez or Madonna way. She doesn’t need to be wanted by every male on the planet. Tilda don’t give a shit. She exudes confidence and cool charisma, and is the personification of personal style. One thing is for sure, the bitch loves fashion, fashion loves her and we are voyeurs in a dim lit cubicle watching this sartorial porn. It is very, very difficult to stop staring at her.
Let’s celebrate our Space Oddess with a look at her style highlights from 2012 so far:
Where did you go to, our Tilda? Our last public view of her was in simple, minimalist white by Celine. Pared back attire with rocked out hair. We loves her.
Super chic in full goddess armour, Tilda was a vision in white Lanvin for the SAG Awards. There was criticism of no belt but we think the heavy cuff was enough. She knows exactly where to pull back on bells and whistles, she knows her face is the main attraction and what she’s wearing is the frame around the masterpiece.
She not all gowns and galas, the Swinton-ator did Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show in Haider Ackermann in a Japanese-teddy boy look in January. So fashion forward, so chic, so blooming odd. See JLo, you can embrace your masculine side without wearing the bulge ‘downstairs’.
Absolutely the look of awards season this year was Tilda in Haider Ackermann for the Golden Globe Awards. Another example of her ability to bring femininity with a masuline edge. Her hair is so f*cking fabulous it should have it’s own Twitter account, not Angelina’s bloody right leg. Tilda could teach Angie a thing or two during their next gal pal tête-à-tête.
