Tilda Swinton In Schiaparelli Couture – ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ Berlinale Film Festival Premiere

Tilda Swinton In Schiaparelli Couture - 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' Berlinale Film Festival PremiereThere was no missing Tilda Swinton at ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ premiere on Wednesday (February 6) during the 64th Berlinale Film Festival at the Berlinale Palast in Berlin, Germany.

After dialing down her look for the film’s photo call, the British star came out with fashion guns blazing in a Schiaparelli Spring 2014 Couture ensemble.

Slouchy yet still sharply tailored, the black suiting separates, white blouse and ruffles became nearly regal on Tilda’s statuesque frame, giving us sophistication and a slight daring edge—especially with that massive, door-knocker cocktail ring on her finger.

Naturally more mannish in appeal, as we are accustomed to seeing on Tilda, the entire look was really stripped straight from the runway, retaining even the quirky, feathered sandals and the hair and makeup styling.

While she didn’t take her blonde locks to the model’s colourful range of hues, she did have a similar slightly wild, barrel-curl ’do. And that bright red lip lacquer was fully intact, too.

Yay or nay?

Tilda Swinton In Valentino Couture – ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ Berlinale Film Festival Photocall

Tilda Swinton In Valentino Fall 2013 Couture - 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' Berlinale Film Festival PhotocallTilda Swinton stood alongside actor Edward Norton and director Wes Anderson, attending ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ Berlinale Film Festival photocall, held on Thursday (February 6) during the 64th Berlinale International Film Festival at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Berlin, Germany.

The British actress plucked a brown herringbone overcoat from the Valentino Fall 2013 Couture collection for her appearance.

The coat was dressed down even more from its runway styling, transforming it into the epitome of straightforward day-wear when layered over a black sheath dress and paired with black pumps.

Her ensemble did rather ironically coordinate perfectly with Edward’s all-black look and Wes’s own tweed suit.

Barely the shred of makeup could be seen on Tilda’s complexion, making me wish for at least some pop of colour to add a bit of pizzazz to this more sombre presentation.

Are you craving some oomph, as well?

Chanel Spring 2014 Couture Front Row

Chanel Spring 2014 Couture Front Row

The Chanel Spring 2014 Couture show took place during Paris Fashion Week today in France. The front row attendees were treated to a show which looked like the designer had sought inspiration from his Spring 2009 Couture collection.

Tilda Swinton: The only person who really caught my eye in the front row was Tilda. The face of Chanel’s Pre-Fall 2013 collection opted for a Chanel Pre-Fall 2014 look, wearing a cashmere star-print sweater with a colourful fringed knit skirt, styled with an American flag scarf, knit tights and two-tone Chanel pumps. Coming from Scotland, she knows a thing or two about dressing for the current season.

Lily Allen: The Brit singer was also perched in the front row, opting for simple staples, jazzing up her look with a red-white-and-blue tweed coat, a colourful headpiece and a Chanel quilted shoulder bag. Adding yet more colour to her look, she opted for smoked blue eye makeup. Between Lupita Nyong’o, Keira Knightley and now Lily, I’m thinking I need to step up my eye-makeup game this season.

Olga Kurylenko: The actress went from temptress at Dior to quite pedestrian at Chanel. If it weren’t for the glossy red lips and those studded cuffs, I wouldn’t have even noticed this look.

Tilda Swinton In Chanel -  MoMA Benefit A Tribute to Tilda Swinton

The Museum of Modern Art 2013 Film Benefit paid tribute to Tilda Swinton in New York City yesterday evening.

As the face of Chanel’s Pre-Fall 2013 collection, the Scottish actress wore a chic look from their Spring 2014 collection.

Uniquely androgynous as always, Tilda kept it simple wearing a boucle black-and-white jacket with silky-smooth wide-leg pants, opting for no jewels and barely there makeup.

Tilda Swinton In Haider Ackermann – ‘Only Lovers Left Alive’ New York Film Festival Premiere

Tilda Swinton In Haider Ackermann - 'Only Lovers Left Alive' New York Film Festival Premiere

Tilda Swinton attended the ‘Only Lovers Left Alive’ premiere during the 51st New York Film Festival held at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center in New York City yesterday evening.

As Tilda’s biggest champion I should have my pompoms out by now, but I just couldn’t get on board with her latest Haider Ackermann look featuring a disco-inspired multi-coloured embellished shawl-collared jacket which hails from the Spring 2014 collection.

Loving the jacket and pants, my issue here is the brown silk shirt.

While I don’t expect her to go bare like the runway model, the brown doesn’t mesh well with the rest of the look, for my personal liking. I wish it was black or that she had opted for a semi-sheer shirt.

I do, however, love that bold red lip.

Tilda Swinton In Haider Ackermann – Hamburg Film Festival

Tilda Swinton In Haider Ackermann - Hamburg Film Festival

Tilda Swinton received the Douglas Sirk Award during the Hamburg Film Festival held at Cinemaxx Dammtor in Hamburg, Germany yesterday evening.

Sporting a rare touch of red lip colour, the British actress turned to her designer BFF Haider Ackermann for her red carpet look.

Delightfully androgynous as always, she selected a midnight-blue shawl-collar suit accented with a diamond brooch, which she paired with a sexy sheer blouse and black satin pumps.

I know many of you don’t get my obsession with Tilda, but I think she effortlessly nails this look time after time.

With her pale skin, striking green eyes, and unique menswear-inspired style she never gets boring for me.

Tilda Swinton In Lanvin – ‘Snowpierce’ Deauville America Film Festival Premiere & Photocall

Tilda Swinton In Lanvin - 'Snowpierce' Deauville America Film Festival Premiere & Photocall

Three film festivals were taking place yesterday: Venice, Toronto and Deauville.

Tilda Swinton took to the red carpet for the Deauville American Film Festival premiere of ‘Snowpierce’, which also served as the closing ceremony yesterday evening.

The British actress is one of my faves. Some of you think this is blind love, but on this occasion I couldn’t bring myself to love this silver Lanvin one-shoulder liquid duchess satin gown.

It has to be one of the most unflattering pieces she has ever worn as it makes her appear wider than she is.

While her black pumps are barely seen, they are far too heavy for the look.

The only thing I really like here is the hair.

Earlier in the day for the photocall she wore an orange coat as a dress. This is more like the Tilda I know and love, especially with the unexpected pairing with baby-blue suede pumps with her citrus hued coat.

You can buy Tilda’s Lanvin one-shoulder duchess satin column gown from
Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus.
