Tilda Swinton's Style Evolution: A Lot of Haider Ackermann
Tilda Swinton's androgynous, eclectic style makes her a malleable on-screen presence. Whether a high-powered general counsel in Michael Clayton, a literal witch in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, or a satire of Hollywood gossip columnist Hedda Hopper in Hail, Caesar!, she's able to fully inhabit a role precisely because she isn't quite like any of them. Or, maybe, even of this world. Though she's been described as chameleon-like, even that isn't quite accurate; Swinton never blends into to the background. In her most recent role in A Bigger Splash, Swinton remains silent throughout the film, which makes us all the more grateful that she has selected a few louder-than-words looks to accompany the film's recent press tour—punctuated by a quick stop to promote Hail, Caesar! at the same time. Her favorites are all accounted for: Recurring appearances by Haider Ackermann, Lanvin, and Chanel accompany a few flashes of Valentino and Vionnet. Here, we've rounded up a few of the best from the past year, and a few from beyond.
