Berlin Film Festival: Tilda Swinton In Schiaparelli Haute Couture

Tilda Swinton Schiaparelli Berlin Film Festival: Tilda Swinton In Schiaparelli Haute Couture %tag

Who: Tilda Swinton

Where: At the opening ceremony of the 64th Berlin International Film Festival for her new movie The Grand Budapest Hotel.

Wearing: A black wool tuxedo, paired with white silk chiffon ruffles and a white matte silk charmeuse man’s shirt all from the Schiaparelli Haute Couture spring 2014 collection, teamed with a striking gold cocktail ring and the Schiaparelli feathered sandal flip flops as seen on the runway.

Verdict: I love, love, love Tilda Swinton, not only is she a woman who totally knows how to work a suit, but I adore how she really does beat to her own drum by wearing the most amazing and daring fashion on the red carpet.

What I love the most about this look is how she really compliments the mannish tailoring with her slouchy posture and those regal ruffles on the blouse – it makes it chic, sophisticated, and edgy all at the same time – everything you expect from Tilda.

As well as being a fan of her masculine red carpet look, I love how she softens the impact with the styling of the striking cocktail ring and her fun barrel-curl hair-do and bright red lippy and nails, it really works to tie in the whole look.

The only thing I am not so sure about has to be those feathered flip-flops, I get that they were part of the runway look, but other than the fact her feet must have been freezing – it is winter in Berlin, the quirky footwear doesn’t add anything to this look for me. But on the other-hand I so appreciate that they are so Tilda, come on only she could pull of these sandals.

What are your thoughts on this quirky and daring red carpet look?

Red Carpet: Golden Globes 2012 – My Best Dressed

I always find it hard narrowing down my best dressed list, it is easier to say what I don’t like, as I fall in love a lot with red carpet gowns so naming just five is hard. Last year was a little easier because there was Olivia Wilde’s princess gown, Anne Hathaway as a gold goddess and Angelina Jolie in an emerald-green Atelier Versace, the only one to return this year’s red carpet. But here they are – in no particular order – as I couldn’t decide on an order!!

Statement Dress

Well there were a lot of boring gowns this year and for those who went for something a little bit different they really stood out for me as that is what award ceremonies are all about. For me the dress that made the most of a statement was Sarah Michelle Gellar’s gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown. This blue ink splotched ball gown made me swoon when I saw it on TV that I knew instantly that I had to include it. I know it is a controversial choice and for most this dress doesn’t work on her tiny frame but I kind of like that about it. Also she said her 2-year-old had a hand in picking it out – what a great a-list styling career she has ahead of her – this is a genius choice.

I couldn’t have a best-dressed list without including one of the hottest trends from this year’s awards the fishtail. I liked a lot from the classic style on Sofia to the sexiness of Reese, but for me Evan Rachel Wood’s edgy Gucci gown is just exquisite. Everything from the scale sequins to the feathered skirt and train, to the unusual dark green colour – it really is a knock-out gown.

Romantic

Couldn’t be a best dressed list with a romantic, fairy tale type dress, last year I went with the traditional princess ball gown of Olivia Wilde, this year is a little unconventional but still just as gorgeous, Charlize Theron and her dusky-pink Dior couture gown. I love the oversized bow, the sexy thigh-high split and plunging neckline, but most of all I love the vintage accessories and the colour is just perfection.

The excitement was in the air at Angelina Jolie hitting the red carpet with Brad Pitt and she most certainly came prepared with a gorgeous Atelier Versace gown. What I loved the most about this gown, other than it being on Angie she never seems to get it wrong during award season, has to be how it fits her perfectly. I also adore the fashion-forward thinking of including the red flash at the neckline, it stops this dress looking a little dated, it also works superbly with her coordinated hot red lippy.

Young Starlets

I know technically I only have one spot left on my top five but I just couldn’t choose between the Hollywood starlets Emma Stone, Dianna Agron and Zooey Deschanel. Emma for me was all about the unusual pairing of purple and fuchsia in her Lanvin gown and of course that fierce eagle belt. I have to support Dianna for her excellent choice in wearing a Giles dress, not only was it the most intricate detailed dress on the red carpet, it was a huge risk for her to go for a relative unknown designer in terms of red carpet looks – but I am so glad she did as she is a vision in red. As my latest girl crush I had to include Zooey, not only did she have the best nails see below, but I was so pleased to see Prada on the Golden Globes red carpet again. What a way to return with a gorgeous green silk gown with an open back and pearl embroidered top – simply gorgeous.

Honorary Mention

I know I already over my top five but I had to include Tilda Swinton in Haider Ackermann, it is the perfect mix of masculine and feminine and she looks incredible. What I love so much about this tailored-suit shape has to be the ice-blue colour – so divine. Also a special mention has to go to her amazing Pomellato jewellery cuffs – HOT!!!

So who gets your vote for best dress – leave me a comment below and let me know.
