I'm not much of a celeb follower. The first time I saw (or noticed) Ms. Swinton was in the movie Michael Clayton, where she looks kind of frumpy and tired. So I was really impressed when I saw her at the Oscars. And now seeing these pictures...it's like seeing a makeover show, LOL. (But so much better than what usually happens to makeover recipients!)

^^Oh yes everday sewist, Ms. Swinton is extremely diverse - she can look either extreme, blah or amazing. And in my opinion, she does "amazing" amazingly well. Truly like no other. Great pictures. Thank you.

She's beautiful and very intriguing, especially knowing what little I do of her personal life, which she shares with the 60-something father of her children AND a 29-year old German artist lover. Not your standard celebrity, to be sure...

I just saw pictures of her Oscar look - I've been living in a cave - and was just about to post a picture of her looking so elegant in her black Lanvin.

Funny how pple seemed to dislike it - it thought it was quite simple and straightforward beautiful.

I've started paying more attention to her since I watched The Deep End. She's electrifying to watch onscreen. Like Cate Blanchett, but more disturbing.

I'm not familiar with her either (I'm terrible with celebrities), but when I saw her I thought, oh, excellent, someone my age who looks like someone my age should look. At least I hoped she was my age. 1960. Yep.

(Yes, I live in a cave, okay? A cave with internet access.)

carlene - i haven't seen any of her movies besides "orlando" - years ago.
i'm a fan of her style. i didn't watch the awards. my cave is quite cozy.

She's a wonder. I love redheads, and I love that sparse, chiseled look, and I respect the approach she's taken to her acting career.

i didn't watch the oscars, but i did look at a slideshow of arrivals pics, and it seems to me that she was the ONLY one wearing something that was even remotely interesting. loved it, love her.

How fabulous.
Tilda is a measure of whether someone gets it or not. People don't have to love it, but if they criticize it, then we likely would clash on many other things.

I've loved Tilda since 'Orlando' - which everyone should watch for the fashion, BTW. She was by far the most gorgeous person at the Oscars. Which means of course, that the mainstream media totally overlooked her. Yay - we get to keep her to ourselves! :)
