Tilda Swinton in Acne Studios

Posted on March 04, 2013

Hello, Miss Tilda. We missed you. Your surprise reunion with your Commanding Officer on the mothership broke the internet in half last week, but alas, it was brief and only made us realize how little we’ve seen of you lately. We need an editorial for WWD or something. Maybe you could hit a red carpet dressed like an alien in couture (again). Because darling, we love you, but this outfit isn’t inspiring hosannas in us the way you have in the past.


Tilda Swinton attends the Acne Studios Fall 2013 show during Paris Fashion Week held at the Grand Palais.

Acne Studios Pre-Fall 2013 Collection/Model: Katlin Aas

But of course, a simple, casual Tilda Swinton day outfit still has more real style to it than a landfill of old Lea Michele and Vanessa Hudgens dresses. J’ADORE that coat. And we love the men’s style shoes and a peek of what looks to be the original Big Girl’s Blouse. We’ll take this momentary bit of Casual Tilda, but sweetie, we’re aching to see you get back to wearing gowns no other celebrity would ever dare wearing. Put one on for us. Just for a little bit.

    Precious otherworldly angel.

      Tilda looking causal fierce and a hot bearded dude.  This is how I like to start my Mondays.

      • Sobaika

        I like to end my days with a hot bearded dude.

        • homofascist

          I do like to take my vitamins in the morning, what can I say?  But point WELL taken!  🙂

        • akprincess72

          That’s why I married one.  =D

    • Melvis Velour

      I just like died…I would give anything to have dinner with her!

  • jackiexx

    chic as always

  • Meg0GayGuys6

    I’d be the guy in the colorful scarf behind her, beaming in adoration at Tilda’s awesome coat.  Or he’s checking out the bearded man’s ass.  Either way, win/win!

    •  That whole cluster of gays on the steps is cute.

      • Calling dibs on the bearded guy in the back.

        • Introspective

          i see there’s going to be a fight for that hot bearded guy. he must be hot to draw attention away from the fierceness that is la swinton.

          • lets just say that his look works for me. (grin)

          • MikeW_Vegas

            His shirt looks a little tight though.. I think he’d be MUCH more comfortable with it off.   (and maybe on the floor of my bedroom) 

          • To paraphrase Stephen Sonheim, “Removing his clothing could take me all day,..”

        • lamamu

           I believe La Swinton has beaten you to it. He’s her lover Sandro Kopp, if I’m not mistaken. Perfect style sense and perfect taste in men…she’s just purrfect all around.

          • I suppose I should have known the hottie would belong to her. Damn.

  • Lord how I adore her fabulous androgyny.

    • akprincess72

      Some people don’t wear it properly, in my opinion, of course.  She works it but GOOD.  Beautiful woman…

  • god she’s just the best. she could have rocked the shoes from the model photo as well. 

    • IMNAngryLiberal

      Yes, she would have.  And I was thinking that the whole runway styling was more Tilda than what she is wearing.  She is one of the only people in the world who looks completely natural styled for the runway!

  • SewingSiren

    Love. Thanks for the viddy link.

    • DeborahJozayt

      Isn’t the video just awesome?

  • EveEve

    Thank you for the Swinton fix, albeit brief.  Hope for lots more to follow!

  • I can’t figure out if that video proved or disproved that she and Bowie are indeed the same person. 

    • Imasewsure

      I think she is looking more like Thom Yorke than Bowie these days (although she and Bowie are the most elegant humans ever)

  • Alyssa

    Oh, I do need a Tilda gown…that would make my day so much better! Also, that jacket is fabulous.

  • RescueMe23

    It looks like the model’s right foot is missing inside that shoe..strange.

    • Indigo54

       OMG it does!  Ewwwww, that’s so freaky.

  • DeborahJozayt

    I love how her eyes look blue because of the coat. 

  • StellaZafella

    I dated this guy.
    He was Swiss, living in Russia and SF.
    He thought the big ass coats made him look more powerful…I just liked to see him smile.
    Thanks for the memory, TS.

    PS: I watched Constantine this weekend, I wonder if they designed her garb as Gabriel or she just brought it from home…it was Asexual fabulousness and I really could switch teams for a Tilda Swinton.

    • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

      You are awesome.

  • A bunch of really simple pieces, but Ms. Tilda looks chic and effortless.

  • ChaCha_70

    TLo never lets me down. Thanks for linking the video of my man, David Bowie. I love this video! It’s creepy/cool and so stylish. And whoever thought of pairing Tilda and David as a couple is brilliant.

    • MsALVA

      If the ever make a movie of David Bowie’s life, well, we know who they should cast to play him.

      • theblondette

        Tilda, who sprung fully formed from the brow of her father-god, Bowie. 

  • MilaXX

    Any Tilda is good Tilda. Love the coat.

  • BrooklynBomber

    She and that coat were made for each other!

  • fringebenefit

    Deep and abiding love.

  • I saw an ad in Vanity Fair with SWINTON this morning and thought how much I missed her. Wonderful coat.

  • Kimmu

    She’s got a movie coming out starring with Tom Hiddleston directed by Jim Jarmusch about vampires. I hope to whatever gods are listening we get red carpets and some promotion for it because of those two. And you know, I can’t wait to see Jarmusch’s take on vampires.

    I love that even in this casual outfit, she is more chic and has more style than I could ever dream of having myself. 

    •  SWINTON, Hiddleston, Jarmusch and vampires is a potent cocktail. Looking forward to that!

      • Derek_anny

        The vampire film is titled “Only Lovers Left Alive.”  Also with Mia Wasikowska and Anton Yelchin.  (Another Swinton project that looks interesting is Snowpiercer.)

  • Aurumgirl

    I agree, she’s a sight for sore eyes especially in something brave and commanding–but even in simple every day clothes she makes it look effortless.  And that’s in short supply in this world, too. 

    I do love the shoes the model’s wearing, though.  Bet you couldn’t walk in them, but they look great.  

  • I’m so glad she has a movie coming sometime in the next year, and about vampires! I can’t wait to swoon over her premiere outfits.

  • Annabelle Archer

    Oh SWINTON, your grace humbles me, but your normalcy saddens me.

  • MK03

    …ACNE Studios?? Really??

  • nannypoo

    It’s not really an outfit. It’s just some clothes. And I don’t like her hair. She’s way too fabulous to be going out like this.

  • Carly Warnock

    She has such a beautiful and symmetrical face. She is stunning without makeup. Hard to say that about most people.

  • mjude

    screw it, i am still bowing down.

  • Snailstsichr

    I love how in the first picture the building in the background is making a halo over her head. Isn’t that grand?!

  • Pants_are_a_must

    Oh, goddess SWINTON. Where have you been, when you haven’t been dopplegängering it up with Bowie?

  • Imasewsure

    Damn she is photogenic…

  • unbornfawn

    I’ve missed her.

  • Janet B

    Love her coat and I’ll assume the shirt looks fabulous on her, but I’m afraid it’s all kinds of boring.

  • DaveUWSNYC

    Love the bearded guy at the bottom of the stairs.

  • lobsterlen

    Love the coat. Modern, classic and chic.

    Was that the first time Tilda and Bowie collaborated? Its so obvious. She could be his muse or he could be her muse … its all gender confusing. Works either way.

    Sort off topic … David looks fantastic. He must be nearing 70. 

  • Around Oscar time, I saw so many lists of Worst Oscar Dresses of all time, along with Bjork’s Swan Dress, Tilda’s always comes up and they’re just so wrong wrong wrong about that! 

  • H2olovngrl

    Great music video. What a perfect fit for her.

  • MoHub

    I will take the SWINTON in any way, shape, or form she cares to appear in. I’ve so missed her.

  • decormaven

    That coat! Swoon.

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    I am a big, fat, extremely tall gay bear.  Tonight I shall pretend that Tilda “borrowed” (stole) my shirt and never returned it, and not that awful girl in school who knew I was gay before I did and dated me for my sweater collection.

    • PeaceBang

      I am sure I’m not the only Precious Unborn Fawn who appreciates that glimpse into your dreamscape. 

      • Anniebet

        With the Everly Brothers singing “All I Have To Do Is Dream” (look it up) in the background. I’m in.

  • Her face looks so lovely as well.  

  • Ho. Ly. Crap. Thank you for that!!!! 
    Although IMO, there were too many people in that video that were not Bowie or Swinton. 

  • Every time SWINTON is linked, I’m amazed and thrilled at how gorgeous she is sans makeup. 

  • chitowndg

    Love her make up in these pictures.

  • Tilda is my spirit animal, her every step is my guide in life.

  • ojosazules

    Never too much Tilda.

  • mhleta

    She’s so interesting. Love her even when she’s not trying all that hard. Thanks for linking to the David Bowie video. I never woud have seen it otherwise, I’m that uncool.

  • uprightcitizen

     Glad she didn’t wear the corrective shoes that the model is wearing. Those things are seriously hiddy.

  • Lilithcat

    I wouldn’t buy anything from a place called Acne Studios!  I spent way to much time in my teens trying to get rid of that very thing.

    Tilda, however, looks great, as always.

  • kindwordsonly

    Acne Studios is such a hideous name for a fashion brand.

  • Le_Sigh

    Tilda you magnificent creature we have missed you!

  • PeaceBang

    Oh, but this is ever so satisfying. 

  • Bowie and Tilda together in a fabulous video-what more could minions ask for??  LOVE!!

  • guest2visits

    She is always going to add a touch of alien to whatever she wears. She looks stark and beautiful in this manly coat, and I like it all
    except the shirt looks like it’s sheet-sized; and I would rather see the pants finished with a woman’s shoe or boot.

  • Anniebet

    My words aren’t worthy.

  • Zippypie

    Tilda is fascinating as hell.  I bow.

  • quiltrx

    So, I don’t know where the hell I was (and why NO ONE TOLD ME!!!) when it broke…but DAMN that video (and song) is incredible!  LOVE it.  And I bet that was one seriously fun casting call.

  • ZootZoot

    I love this woman, what a goddess.
    She is serving Ice Queen realness with that white hair, I live!

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    I want that coat I want that coat I want that coat I want that coat.

  • glennethph

    Are they doing another Narnia?  Because that color looks like what she wore in the movies.

    She looks awesome.

  • Her shoes are scuffed!  At Fashion Week. *Love*

  • shelley514

    This chica has so much style.

  • Tuneful54

    Au contraire, I think the model’s shoes look like durable medical appliances.

  • Thathoodwink


  • libraangel

    Introducing Mr. David Cameron, Prime Minister of Great Britain

  • I can’t get past her eyes. She is hypnotizing! 

  • kathrineb

    Great style all of her own! Minor qualm: not feeling the crazy bleached eyebrows and gelled hair. I know its her ‘thing’ but I really don’t like it.
