Goddess



Tilda Swinton wearing Lanvin at the 81st Annual Academy Awards.
Note, it is not Lanvin wearing Tilda Swinton. A lesson a good many of the Hollywood set (and those who take their cues from them) should heed. Neither over styled, nor over dressed for the occasion.

If one is a greyhound, why try to look like a Pekingese?

Cd'T - she always manages to look an elegant, intelligent, and individual woman. Not, some silly girl playing dress-up.

Isn't she just divine??

I'm so glad you think so! I was the only person at the party I attended who thought she looked amazing! On second thought...I think she was my favorite of the evening! In 2 years people will forget who the 'star' actresses were, but I think Tilda will go down as a style icon, not to mention her acting chops.

She definitely is a godess - always dressed perfectly, and such a fantastic actress.

She was and is the embodiment of style -- understated grace and casual effortlessness. The point is well taken that Lanvin was NOT wearing her.

She is a greyhound- what a perfect quote to accompany Tilda Swinton. GT
