Red Carpet Fashion Awards

I nearly passed out when I saw Tilda Swinton on the cover of W Magazine’s August issue.

The queen of androgyny sent shivers down my spine with her captivating editorial which was shot on a futuristic Icelandic landscape by photographer Tim Walker.

She graces the cover wearing a Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2011 silk velvet tuxedo and silk blouse designed by Creative Director Massimiliano Giornetti.

He captures Tilda wearing many looks including Blumarine, Céline, Chloé, Zero + Maria Cornejo and Comme des Garçons.

Tilda portrays an albino alien who fell to earth, reflecting W’s current fascination with androgyny and men’s uniforms.

In the issue Tilda talks about what it was like playing the mother of an evil child, androgyny and she shares what she really thinks about Hollywood.

Extracts are below, but you can read more at wmagazine.com.

On her own style icons: “David Bowie—whom I’ve been orbiting ever since I saw The Man Who Fell to Earth in 1976—and my father, Maj. Gen. Sir John Swinton. They are individuals with whom I share the same planetary DNA.” Read more…

Tilda Swinton attended the Terry Gilliam honorary dinner at the Istancool Festival in Turkey on Friday night.

The British actress continued to show her love for the designer Haider Ackermann by wearing another look from his Fall 2011 collection.

We weren’t blown away by her Cannes look, but this is more like it for me.

It’s Tilda being Tilda, who isn’t compromising to look more approachable for the red carpet.

I love the mix of colours and that she modified the look so it doesn’t have a high neckline.

I’m very curious to know the significance of that arrow pin which she also wore during Cannes.

Tilda Swinton wore Haider Ackermann at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival “We Need To Talk About Kevin” Premiere tonight.

I’m sure like me many of you expected Tilda to opt for this designer, as she’s been known to work closely with Haider Ackermann on many occasions.

Her Fall 2011 custom-made dress is inspired by a similar look on the runway.

The navy satin runway pants have become a sleek asymmetrical high-waist skirt with pockets and a side split.

Tilda’s added a Haider Ackermann scarf collar silk shantung top to complete the look.

Some of you complained about Tilda’s lack of make-up at the photocall, but she added some pink lippie on this occasion.

An Olympia Le-Tan clutch and some unfortunate Jil Sander pumps completed her look.

I’m very excited to see Tilda Swinton at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival.

The British actress attended the photocall for her new film, “We Need To Talk About Kevin” at the Palais des Festivals this morning.

As always Tilda showcases her impeccable, understated style wearing a simple navy high-waist skirt with a beige blouse.

Roger Vivier rose accented heels and a gold arrow brooch completed her look.

Tilda is definitely one to watch tonight.

Joint Best Dressed Award
Tilda Swinton was my second favourite on the red carpet at the 2011 BAFTA Awards in London tonight.

The British actress wore a Haider Ackermann black suit with cream satin lapels on her waistcoat.

Her black suit was is worn with great style and poise.

I don’t know many other stars who can get me drooling over a black suit on the red carpet, but Tilda does.
