Tilda Swinton at the “Embodying Pasolini” Press Conference

Posted on June 25, 2021

Pope Tilda has returned to our lives. We feel you should let the Tildaness wash over you. Our words are not needed here.

 

But okay, fine. You probably need some sort of explanation, as if the Pontiff putting on her robes is somehow inexplicable. W magazine has the goods:

You never know what to expect from the enigmatic Tilda Swinton when she attends a work event, the most recent of which was on Thursday at Rome’s ongoing exhibition “Romaison.” Along with the fashion historian Olivier Saillard, the Academy Award winner offered a preview of her tribute to the late, highly influential director Pier Paolo Pasolini, and particularly the costumes in Pasolini period films like Oedipus Rex (1967), The Decameron (1971), and The Canterbury Tales (1972).

THIS is why we love her so. She understands clothing not only as a form of costume, but as a form of art unto itself. She always wears fashion and costumes with the bearing of someone who truly respects the craft and artistry behind them.
