Academy Museum Gala 2022: Tilda Swinton in Schiaparelli

Posted on October 17, 2022

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Museum had its second annual gala over the weekend and given the level of stardom that showed up, as well as the level of fashion they were sporting, we think it’s pretty clear that the Academy wants this event to be the West Coast Met Gala, essentially. You will hear no complaints from these two bitches. What’s great for celebrity red carpet commentating jabronies like us is that unlike the Met Gala, with its focus on boundary-pushing fashion, this event is purely about celebrating mainstream movie stars. It’s got all the glamour of Oscar night with none of the tension because no one’s there to pick up an award. Everyone is there merely to indulge in one of the oldest traditions in Hollywood: celebrating movie stars. And speaking of movie stars and old glamour, here’s Pope Tilda, sporting a current Schiaparelli inspired by a 1938 design from the house.


It’s moments like these when we wonder if the stars are reading us and heeding us. This is quite possibly the most overtly papal style she’s ever worn. The only thing it’s missing is one of those mitered bishop’s hats and a gold staff. She’s got the ring and we are prepared to kiss it. We are bowing down, pontiff. This is a gorgeous and eye-catching design with a real sense of history behind it.
