A week in the wardrobe of... Tilda Swinton

11 September 2009


Oscar-winning actress Tilda Swinton is a rare thing in Hollywood, for she is totally unique not only in her looks but also in her style. Whilst in the past Tilda's wildcard outfits (especially for the red carpet) have been extreme and borderline fancy-dress, over the past week at the Venice Film Festival Tilda has found a sleeker stride without losing any of her avant-garde, head-turning style. And we were beyond excited to spot Tilda in a head-to-toe Celine 'Resort' look (nude jacket, black trousers and white blouse) – the first A-lister we believe to have worn anything from the new collection designed by ex-Chloé fashion designer extraordinaire Phoebe Philo. From minimalist tailoring (Tilda's white suit look is by Jil Sander) to dramatic taffeta and gorgeous draped dresses – often by Lanvin (a label she regularly wears) – Tilda always achieves a great sense of drama; she wears her looks, never the other way around. Oh, and how much do we love her collection of Lanvin necklaces? Divine!
