Tilda Swinton charms Berlin with her alien-ferocity: stunning & amazing?


There’s not too much to say here except for TILDA SWINTON. And Ralph Fiennes, Bill Murray and Ed Norton too. But most Tilda. That magnificent alien is gracing the Berlin Film Festival right now to promote the new Wes Anderson film, The Grand Budapest Hotel. We discussed the first trailer several months ago, and like many of you, I loved it and I can’t wait to see it. Ralph Fiennes doing a bizarre comedic role, playing a hotel manager who seduces 90-year-old women? Tilda Swinton in heavy prosthetics and makeup to make her look ancient? COME ON. We need to see this movie.

Anyway, these are some collected shots from the photocall and premiere. For the photocall, Tilda wore a simple black skirt, black t-neck and a fabulous herringbone coat (there’s a lot of herringbone going around these days, have you noticed?). For the premiere… well, look at that outfit. LOOK AT THE SHOES. Look at the cut of that suit and look at the weirdness of the ruffled shirt. God. She’s our Alien-Queen.

PS… Ralph Fiennes’ Canadian tuxedo makes me happy.

    Why aren’t we talking about the fabulous facial fur on Fiennes? It is Fantastic Friday, after all.

    In a fierce battle of fug, who will win? Those feet or the creatures engulfing them?

  3. bns says:

    Only she can get away with those shoes.

    Saoirse Ronan looks miserable.

    • Azurea says:

      Maybe she’s cold. Maybe she’s sick — she looks rather wan. Or maybe her boyfriend has been acting like a douche & she just can’t hide her heartbreak today.

      She is my Alien Goddess, always and forever.

      I like Wes Anderson films in general, and Moonrise Kingdom is one of my very favorite movies. Swinton and Anderson are always a good mix; quite looking forward to Grand Hotel Budapest.

    Umm…did Fiennes not realize where he was going? I get the casual look…but c’mon, Ralphie, at least wear a nice pair of pants and a nice shirt!!!!

    Tilda looks fierce!!!! She looks so fantastic in tailored suits, and those shoes….only Tilda could make them work perfectly!!!

      I love Ralph too but seriously man dress up. He looked like he just rolled out of bed and said let’s go to a premiere.

    • Kate says:

      I was Tilda and Grace Jones to have a baby. Tilda never ages what a gorgeous woman

    I like it all but the hair, doesn’t seem right for her.
    And I love her coat in the bottom pictures.

  6. Littlewood says:

    I like her but those shoes are just…. no.

  7. MacScore says:

    I love Tilda. But I do NOT love those ‘shoes’ – European cleaning lady meets funky penguin.
    I had a herringbone coat exactly like that in the 80s… got it in a thrift shop for about 10 bucks…. hmmm… whatever happened to it?
    Ralph Fiennes is looking fantastic, as usual.

    • Azurea says:

      Yeah, it looks like those shoes met the wrong end of a meat grinder.

    • INeedANap says:

      To be fair, if she ever decided to dress like a rare tropical bird, those shoes would come in handy. Tilda for Winner of Halloween 2014!

    • Spacelamb says:

      MacScore: It is a lovely coat. It’s a shame you left it in a nightclub and Tilda decided to ‘Lohan’ it.

  8. Sullivan says:

    I cannot wait to see this movie!

    *Squeeing at the top of my voice*

    OMG, I cannot WAIT to see this movie!!!

    OOH, I’m so excited, OMG!!!

    *calms down, takes a breath*

    Now, on to those shoes.

    *Pauses. Ponders. Whips out the Southern accent*

    Mah gudness. She sure does have a creative streak, now doesn’t she?

    Bless her heart.

    I’d love to know about TS’s sandals – looks like leather thongs with feathers? They don’t appear to fit, but I’m still interested……very unexpected!

    The ruffle on the shirt – is it down the front of the blouse or is it a scarf? It’s confusing, but I think she looks SO great in that suit.

    Her hair looks a bit curly and extra yellow here….

  11. QQ says:

    This Bitch wearing that menswear situation on the first pic.. Her hair… Her freaking skin… I Cant deal, cause im not worthy!… UGH

  12. Chinoiserie says:

    Saroise´s dress looks horrible but she looks beautiful nevertheless.

  13. Alexa says:

    I’m not a frequent movie watcher, but Tilda might just be my favorite high fashion model.

  14. Mari says:

    She looks great but I hate those shoes
