I remember Tilda’s appearance in Constantine, one of the movies I keep close to my heart. I couldn’t decide if I liked her, disliked her or completely hated her.

My feelings were far from being positive on her. She looked convincingly detestable to me but in a catchy kind of way. However, it was the fashion involvement that got me all wondering about what’s cooking in Tilda Swinton’s head.

She was brought up in aristocracy, her Scottish blood melted with military more than anything (giving her family’s military career since forever) but she grew up differently.

Strong minded and versatile, she managed an interesting choice of parts in the movies she was part of (Orlando, Thumbsucker, Broken Flowers, The Chronicles of Narnia).

I wanted to clear you more on Tilda’s account and more I look into her story, more I feel like going through moving sands. She has a very interesting architecture and a unique way of presenting herself. (I do remain firmly on my positions saying that her Lanvin dress was terrifying at the 80th Oscar Ceremony!)

How do you look at Tilda? As you were looking at an actress? A style icon? A trend setter? As you were looking at something that you can’t really put your finger on?

Tilda Swinton has always been and will always be a wonderful enigma to me. Especially in these pictures. She has that air of mystery mixed with undeniable androgyny about her. She almost seems inhuman. But thats just my opinion.

…and I agree. her character in constantine was absolutely spiteful but still managed to capture and entrance us. that is magic, i suppose.

I love her. Any idea where these images were originally published?

She is in a clip shown on Classic Arts Showcase on the local education channel (Glendale, CA) with an old woman named Amy Johnson.
