Tilda Swinton for W

I recently watched the visually beautiful and thought provoking film The Beach (directed by the incredible Danny Boyle and starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert Carlyle) and love the incredibly funny film Burn after Reading, both starring the capturing beauty that is Tilda Swinton. She has the most interestingly unique look and I simply adore her perfect English accent and striking facial features. That certainly doesn't go unnoticed in her latest editorial for W magazine. It has been compared to David Bowie's look but I disagree completely- it is much more refined, fresh looking and very much inspired by utilitariunism and formed into 8 different looks, is compiled of earthy tones, crisp whiteness and broken up with deep plum and bright red shades. I particularly like the initial image and I especially love the beige leather thigh-high boots and oversized white blazer. She almost looks unreal- robot-like and very androgynous but then again masculinity is very much part of Tilda's everyday look. She has even in the past confessed that she often gets mistaken for a man. But after all, she is an actress? Why not get dressed up and create something completely surreal?


What do you make of the editorial?
