Tilda Swinton in Haider Ackermann
Oh, Tilda! You DO love us! You really, really DO!
The last time we spoke (and by that we mean T Lo spoke and you pretended not to hear) we hinted that, while it’s always lovely to see you, it’s better when you wear something really meaty; something a couple bloggers can sink their teeth into and worship just for NOT being another gown or cocktail dress.
So how can we take this but as a direct response to our request, darling?
Tilda Swinton attends the private view of ‘David Bowie Is’ at Victoria & Albert Museum in London, England in Haider Ackermann.

Oh, sure. We could go with the fiction that you’ve never heard of us, have no idea what we say about you, and dress according to your own whims, but that’s just SILLY. Of course this is a direct, private message just to T & Lo, saying, with a knowing smirk, “I got you, boys. Here you go.”
Thank you, Tilda. Now let’s sink our teeth in.
We love every single thing going on from the waist up. Like, seriously love it. The hair and makeup are icy-gorgeous, and the various layers and textures and competing prints in the clothes are a treat for the eyes. But those elephant-trunk pants make us sad. Ooooh, so close, Tilda. Two inches off that hem and we would have given this a WERQ and snapped our fingers till they were bloody. Every single thing about this look is perfection to us (and something only Tilda could pull off) but that hem and her disappearing feet look terrible.
Still, we’ll take it. Between Tilda and Teyonah, we should just shut down for the day, because we’re not going to see any more outfits as stylish or interesting any time soon. A shame. Ladystars: take risks! We promise we won’t hate you for it! If we have to see one more twee girl in a pixie cut and floral dress, or another leg-baring Angelina pose with cocker-spaniel extensions for hair, we might just resort to heroin to get through our days. Won’t you help, ladystars? Won’t you throw a couple blogger bitches a bone? Be unexpected, darlings!
