Tilda Swinton seen on Apr 18 2013 in New York, NY. Tilda Swinton was photographed at the Stefano Tonchi Celebrates W Magazine’s Modern Beauty Issue, which was held at the Perry Street Restaurant in NYC on April 18. Tilda was the magazine's cover girl for this issue, which feature artistic, unique shots of the English actress. For her event ensemble, Tilda kept things simple in a pair tapered leg white pants (get the look with James Jeans' High Class Skinny in Frost White, or for a pair with an interesting texture, check out 7 For All Mankind's Snake Pant in White Snakeskin) that she wore with a slouchy black top and simple black heels. For two options that closely resemble Tilda's top, take a look at either Zoa's Twisted Detail Sweater in Black or James & Joy by Joy Han's Kate Kimono Cardigan in Black. Minimal makeup and a sleek, slicked down hairstyle completed Tilda's look, which is pretty tame for the actress who usually serves up quirky, fashion-forward outfits. What are your thoughts on TS' ensemble this time around, readers? For the W Magazine article, Tilda chatted about her thoughts on beauty, and had this to say: "Being beautiful was never really something I associated with people I knew – certainly not girls. Boys maybe. Horses, yes, and certainly my great-grandmother Elsie Swinton, whose imperial grandeur was like a watermark." It's always interested to hear Tilda's point of view!


Tilda Swinton seen on Nov 17 2011 in Madrid, Spain. Tilda Swinton was photographed at Marie Claire’s Prix de la Moda Awards that were held at the French Embassy in Madrid, Spain on November 17, and was honored with an award at the prestigious event. Dressed in a vibrant Haider Ackermann ensemble for the evening, Tilda's androgynous beauty was in full effect. While she doesn't normally wear makeup, TS opted for a bright red lip to accentuate her jewel-toned outfit. She paired her Haider Ackermann blazer and trousers with a soft, feminine blouse and two-toned heels that really brought everything together. If you're curious about how to emulate this look, try wearing Laugh, Cry, Repeat's Cropped Sleeve Blazer in Grey with Allegra Hicks' Cigarette Trouser in Grey, and then add on a pretty blouse, such as Elizabeth & James' Nicolas Blouse in Blush/Brown or Fifteen-Twenty's Tie Front Shirt in Beige. What are your thoughts on Tilda's look here, everyone... fashion forward and fabulous or a bit too much? While Tilda has long been known as a fashion risk-taker, it seems that she is in the Blake Lively club of not having a stylist. Says Tilda: "You mean there’s somebody in your hotel room who actually takes your clothes out of a suitcase and lays them out for you? Really? Or is that just a fantasy? There is nobody in my suitcase but myself, I can tell you that.” Go ahead, own those fashion risks T!
