In or Out: Tilda Swinton in Haider Ackermann

Posted on November 29, 2011

Darlings, we’re about to commit fashion heresy, but we think Tilda might be in a bit of a style rut. We actually turned down the opportunity to feature Tilda here a couple of times recently because what she was wearing didn’t really excite us. Can you imagine?

 

Tilda Swinton attends the IFP’s 21st annual Gotham Independent Film awards in New York City in Haider Ackermann.

See, we totally dig her form of androgyny. It works really well with her features and she’s found a way to make herself – an attractive, but otherwise not head-turning woman – into something strange and beautiful and intriguing. But we liked it more when she was sporting the minimal makeup and Bowie hair with some sort of wild or unusual gown. The juxtaposition really worked. But if you sport the androgynous look with a pantsuit (which she’s been doing a lot lately), it just feels sort of … expected. There are things we like here, but the overall look doesn’t grab us. If she’d worn that exact coat and blouse with a long slim skirt with a slit up to her thigh and a pair of kickass shoes, we’d be screaming “WERQ it!” from the top of our lungs. But when you pair them with a balloony pair of pants and simple black pumps, it just looks … average.

And Tilda Swinton, we think you’ll agree, should never look average.

IN! “AVERAGE?!?” Where have YOU bitches been hanging out lately?


OUT! Pegged, pleated pants are a pernicious problem!


Voting is still open on Charlize Theron’s half-assed (in our opinion) red carpet look.
