A Birthday Salute to Tilda Swinton’s Wonderfully Wacky Red Carpet Style
In honor of Tilda Swinton’s 52nd birthday, we’ve rounded up 10 of her most spectacular and unique red carpet looks. Happy birthday, Tilda!
Confession: I adore Tilda Swinton. She may be a little wacky, but seriously, she’s the best. Besides the fact that she’s one heck of an actress (seriously—name something Tilda Swinton has done that she’s been bad in. Give up? Me too, because she’s never bad!), one of my favorite things about Tilda is the fact that she wears whatever she wants—and somehow, no matter how weird the ensemble, she always pulls it off. Or at least, we never question it, because it’s Tilda. That, my friends, is a rare gift indeed.
So in honor of this force of nature’s 52nd birthday, here’s a look back at some of her best looks. Happy birthday, Tilda—and may there be many, many more to come!
1. Rhapsody in Blue
This is both one of Tilda’s most recent red carpet looks, as well as my all-time favorite of her outfits. She’s well known for her affinity for clean lines and impeccable tailoring, and this structured, yet flowing sky-blue confection exemplifies everything that we all love about Tilda’s style. Plus, does that color look terrific on her or what?
2. Guess Who’s Wearing the Pants in This Relationship?
In a sea of sumptuous dresses and gowns, Tilda often stands out from the crowd by sporting neatly tailored suits and trouser-based looks. At the 2011 BAFTAS, she looked like the proverbial million bucks in a black Haider Ackermann suit with satin lapels accenting the waistcoat. Love!
