Tilda Swinton attends the 2016 CFDA Fashion Awards held at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City.

 

Why, Miss Tilda. We almost didn’t recognize you under all that makeup.

This is all mix-and-match from the same house, but it tends to feel a bit random to us. On the other hand, we think the pink lip – which is clearly designed to be seen from 20 feet away – is meant to be a deliberate attempt to unify the orange stripe in the pants and the red toe of the boots. It almost works, but that top is a bit of a focus-puller on its own. Had it been something white and minimalist, we think the rest of the look could’ve pulled together a bit better.

Not that she looks bad here. Not at all. As always, her style choices give us things to talk about and pick apart, which is why she makes such a striking figure, even when she looks at first glance like she’s wearing a bunch of random items.
