RED CARPET SHOWDOWN OF THE WEEK: Keira Knightley vs. Tilda Swinton

Posted on November 02, 2018

Two very different ladies who both opted to work big-ass skirts this week, darlings! And yet, the results could not be more different, from tone to visuals.

Lo’s Pick: Keira Knightley in Chanel Couture at “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms” European Premiere

Lo’s Defense:  I know we just featured this like an hour ago, but I’m honestly grateful to her for making the effort so late in the week. We talk a lot about her style evolution and how she’s grown away from the romanticism that defined her early career, but sometimes, you’ve just got to accept that you’re a fairy princess at heart and you need to put on a killer fairy princess gown. She leaned into it – and the results are kind of breathtaking.



T’s Pick: Tilda Swinton in Chanel Couture at the Chanel Cruise Show in Bangkok

T’s Defense: Tilda’s look couldn’t be more different in tone and style. First, she’s not leaning into her classic look, she’s actually leaning away from it; serving up an unexpectedly feminine silhouette that almost comes off shocking from her. It’s still got that sense of androgyny she brings to her looks, by keeping the head styling clean and sporting a broad-shouldered top with short sleeves. Despite the sweep and drama of the skirt, there’s something kind of kickass about the top half, making for a look that’s more interesting than it appears at first glance and also strikingly memorable. 

Princess vs. Pope! Foofaraw vs. Stripped-Bare! Light vs. Dark! It’s an ancient tale, kittens. Make your choice.
