Tilda Swinton Black Dress on the 80th Academy Award Red Carpet

  • Pin it

I had some kind of great expectations when Tilda Swinton was involved. Looking at these pictures just makes me wonder what was she thinking when leaving the hotel room with this dress!

I remember a friend’s dog-couch looking just like this – tired, torn on the sides, with no attitude whatsoever except a dark fatigué fabric reminding everyone that once was a noble velvet there, somewhere… What do you think? Is Tilda edgy but classy as usual? Or she just had her fashion disaster like anyone else?

At first sight I thought “huh, what the hell is this”? But that dress began to intrigue me. Couldn’t let it go. And now? I love this dress! It’s so calm, almost peaceful between all the “fashion noise”. (Designed by Alber Elbaz)

I think she’s totally “Tilda” and that’s what it’s all about.

One of the most stunning Oscar outfits EVER!!! Classy, chic, yet on the very edge (but not crossing)! ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!!!

I may be a bit less minimalist than Tilda seem to be for all of you but that Lanvin still looks like a draped sheet to me…

Oh, oh great. Modern art folks, here we go. She is a straight up “artist.” I love her face and she’s amazingly beautiful, but its the ACADEMY AWARDS, a little eyeliner and/or lipgloss would do the trick, beautiful. And the dress is really,really futuristic, but I do think it resembles a bathrobe after my dog just chewed it. I dont like the dress, the tank sleeve and the long sleeve… the slit… it merely does not go.
Although, her shoes and jewelery are so fantastic! (:

She’s mad. Fabulous but mad to think this is a glamourous look. She is such an interesting beauty I just wish to God she would wear more makeup because she always looks wan and washed out. Wonderful actress.
