Tilda Swinton at the Snowpiercer Deauville Photocall

Posted on September 09, 2013

Our love for Miss Tilda is long and deep, but it’s Fashion Week, which means, unlike the other 50 weeks out of the year, we actually have to get dressed up every day and then stay dressed up for like ten hours. Don’t get us wrong, we’re a couple of Fashion Bitches who love that sort of shit, but it does tend to get exhausting after awhile, fussing constantly to make sure you’re just so.

Which is why we kind of hate her right now.


Tilda Swinton attends the photocall for “Snowpiercer” during the 2013 Deauville Film Festival in Deauville, France.

Bitch can just put on a coat and a pair of pumps and be picture-ready. We admit it. We’re jealous.

    Don’t know why she’s posing like that, but I hope she never stops. Shutting it down.

    • Meg0GayGuys6

      “Come, my people. The Tildanites gather in the gardens around noon for worship. Join us.”

      • Danielle

        Glory, glory, hallelujah!

        • Lanus


  • gabbilevy

    It helps that it’s a gorgeous flipping coat. But yes. SWINTON, FTW.

  • Zaftiguana

    You just know she’s not wearing a thing under that coat, too. She’s the best.

    • Sue_Asponte

      If other pictures show she’s wearing anything under that, I will be heartily disappointed.

  • Erica_Vuitton

    Eh, honestly, I expect more from her. She looks like a High Fashion Flasher.

    • e jerry powell

      That’s the best kind.

  • Jaeda Laurez

    SWINTON! The coat is such a gorgeous color too.

    • marlie

      That color is SO striking. I feel the need to go on a shopping spree…

  • hughman

    I love how she’s motioning like Couture Stewardess on Alien Airlines.

    • Anathema_Device

      Literal LOL from me. Thanks.

  • Tanya Wade

    She also has incredible spokesmodel skills. Come on, what CAN’T she do. Show a car on The Price is Right, win an Oscar, spread alien love. Everything.

  • Jacquelyn

    It’s a gorgeous color for a coat. She rocks it.

  • eowyn_of_rohan

    Couture meets the Hokey Pokey. An all-around win.

  • Trust, everyone’s jealous.

  • Ana_ragu

    It helps that she not only has beautiful bone structure, but that she radiates contentment. Her smile doesn’t need to be big to show up in her eyes. So many of the celebs show us their teeth but not their spirit.

    • marlie

      There’s humor in her smile and eyes, unlike so many other stars on the red carpet. Even if she’s laughing at the ridiculousness of the step-and-repeat, she’s showing signs of enjoying herself, and that’s all that matters to me.

      • Ana_ragu

        Exactly. This.

      • Little_Olive

        Word. I am always in awe of how she doesn’t seem to take herself or any of it too seriously, but at the same time she is on point and never disrespects.

        Zosia, Lena, take a cue.

    • conniemd

      Oh thank you for explaining the Tilda magic, looking back on the pictures it’s in the eyes, which express humor and magic and knowingness. Cate Blanchett has that too.

  • “To the left we have all of the people who worship me and think that I am a fabulous alien.”
    “And here to the right, we have all of the people who worship me and think that I am of this world, but the split apart of Ziggy Stardust.”

    • fursa_saida

      I have spent the last five years trying to come to terms with the fact that at this point she’s too old to play Bowie in a biopic. I can take his music video that she was in as consolation.

      • formerlyAnon

        Honestly, I’d watch film of her and Bowie having cocktails. Or lunch. With no audio. (Probably better if no audio, one doesn’t want to be disillusioned.)

        • fursa_saida

          I bet their conversation would only heighten the glory, but it probably wouldn’t hurt to be safe. I would watch them taking selfies together, I don’t even care, just EXIST IN THE SAME ROOM MORE OFTEN, PLEASE.

  • RussellH88

    Every time I see a picture of her, I worry this will be the moment the sheer fabulousness of Swinton sears my retinas, rendering me blind.

  • Kate

    Eat your heart out Vanna!

  • GillianHolroyd

    Rolled-up cuffs?

    • Eric Stott

      I sort of agree, but without the roll of the cuffs the perfection would reach such a state the world just might implode.

      • marlie

        It’s like when knitters intentionally make a mistake in their projects so as not to offend God. Not something that I do; I have enough unintentional mistakes to guarantee that I’m not going to incur the wrath of any higher being(s).

        • AnneElliot

          I’ve used that line when I teach knitting classes! Except I heard that it was Oriental rugs, because only God is perfect. Either way, Tilda is some kind of Higher Being, and I’m sure if I saw her in person I would fall to my knees.

    • Sweetvegan

      It would have been so easy to shorten those sleeves.

  • paginatrix

    Also, the shoes are a marvelous color.

  • Cheryl

    I like the photos with the carpet cropped out. It looks like she’s taking a fashionable stroll on the beach. Albeit with random words floating behind her, but that’s just how I imagine it is when Tilda goes walking.

    • kimmeister

      I smell a movie concept!

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    Think how rich we would be if we could perfect a serum that would give us skin like hers!

    • Synnae

      It’s called living in Scotland. You don’t get a lot of sun 😉

    • oekmama

      Is she even wearing makeup?

  • Chris ‘Supermarky’ Maher

    sometimes a coat is not just a coat

  • MzzPants

    She’s my hero.

  • Nancer

    It’s that face, it’s just so photogenic. She can do no wrong.

  • Eric Stott

    I hope she’s wearing something that is both ironic and scandalous underneath.

  • MilaXX

    A) She looks insanely gorgeous with little to no makeup on. B) If I wore a coat and a pair of light blue pumps, I am sure my friends would have me put on a mental health hold because C) I could never look that fierce in said coat and light blue pumps.

    • marlie

      Yes, THIS is a nude face. No (or precious little) makeup whatsoever. And she’s luminous.

    • mjude

      hell yes you would look fierce in the coat & pumps! i think i would too. now i must pause & bow down.

      took forevah to get caught up on my tlo reading!

  • EdithP

    You know, by all rights she should look like a Q-Tip wrapped in a red tissue, but she looks fabulous.

  • Tracy_Flick

    That coat. OMG.

  • Synnae

    Great face, but also great attitude and knowing very well what works for her. Which in her case just happens to be out there couture. Lucky b*tch!

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    She appears to be introducing us to her imaginary friend (who obviously is not as fabulous as she).

  • marlie

    Never stop, Ms. Swinton, never stop.

    (LOVING this.)

  • kimmeister

    I can’t quite make out her ring. It looks like a shark tooth?

  • greyhoundgirl

    Does she even have any make-up on? She is so perfect as is.

  • Belvane

    I’ve been wondering what happened to David Byrne’s big jacket. (I tease because I love.)

  • Nappysue

    She’s always amazing, but I can’t help but think she would be even more amazing with just a swipe of mascara and a touch of lip gloss.

  • Glam Dixie

    I find it a little odd that the sleeves are rolled up, but what a beautiful color on her. She is fabulous.

  • elemspbee

    luv huh.

  • majorbedhead

    “No, no, no, people. It’s a JUMP to the left and THEN a step to the right.”

  • LaSylphide

    Well, I mean, what did you expect? She puts on an odd, if beautiful, coat and, apparently nothing else – including makeup – and shows the children how to be effortlessly perfect.

  • Fordzo

    If I put that on, I’d look like such a schlump. No one would share a seat with me on the bus.

  • ashtangajunkie

    I want the confidence to be photographed with a real nude face. She looks radiant and every inch the alien goddess that she is. Wherever Tilda gestures, I want to go to there.

  • ThaliaMenninger

    And you may ask yourself

    How do I work this?

    And you may ask yourself

    Where is that large automobile?

    And you may tell yourself

    This is not my beautiful house

    And you may tell yourself

    This is not my beautiful wife

    • formerlyAnon


  • Jessica Freeman

    I do believe if I walked out wearing only a trench and pumps, the police would suspect I was up to something. Tilda, never!

  • queeniethebold

    i’m sure i’ll get flamed for this, but: This is what that Gaga person can only dream remotely of achieving.

    Why? Because it’s in Swinton’s bones, it’s in her DNA. That’s why she doesn’t have to try so hard, and still always ends up being the epitome of fierceness. You can always see it in her eyes!

  • melanie0866

    Somebody buy her some chapstick.

  • Poeta Paz

    Why, when I go to buy a coat, they are sooooo boring? It’s not fair.

  • crash1212

    She’s beyond WERQ. I want that coat. And with those shoes…perfection. She’s…everything.

  • jspark

    Tilda Swinton is my spirit animal

  • luluransom

    Ooooh, been waiting for this today. It’s perfect.

  • Dan_In_NYC

    Some ladies just have it. And Tilda owns that room.

  • quiltrx

    She’s just so damned striking and fabulous, isn’t she? And I think even the more minimal of fashions look terrific on her because she sells it. I don’t mean in a ‘look at me’, super smiley way…I mean in a “I’m quietly enjoying this, and enjoying what I’m wearing” kind of way. You want to feel like she seems to feel.

  • I love that the sun on the backdrop is giving her a halo

  • LorrainePromo

    I have been a lurker since Season 1 of Project Runway. But I just have to say she is the love child of David Bowie.
    Heroes cover

  • Akmall Razlan

    Tilda Swinton is the real Eccentric. Amazing, she is very high standard, just like Miss Helena Bonham Carter, she wears what she wants to wear. That amazing!

  • Katesymae

    By George, could it be?! Between this and that shiny silver trashbag dress she sported this week, I can’t help but wonder if Ms. Tilda is trying to hide something in the tummy region… I know she’s 50+, but if anyone could wield fertility like a super power, Lord knows it’d be SWINTON.

  • bellafigura1

    That is simply amazing.

  • kat89

    I’m not loving it. I sometimes think she gets too much of a “pass” from the fashion media because she has such a distinctive look and is easy to dress. This just looked too lazy to me.

  • Kent Roby

    Superlatives fall short for this other-worldly creature.

  • valerie saenz

    2 words “BONE STRUCTURE”

  • nyazgirl

    What am I missing? #disappointed

  • I needed a palate cleanser after Posen. Bless you men. Hang in there with the Fashion Week fare. Wearing real pants for a whole day is exhausting!

  • Shawn EH

    Beautiful pumps. A perfect coat. Okay, also her face rules all.
