Dakota Johnson & Tilda Swinton brought the fashion drama to Venice

75th International Venice Film Festival - Celebrity Sightings - Day 4

Luca Guadagnino’s remake of Suspiria premiered on Saturday at the Venice Film Festival. This is actually the first time that I’ve put it all together: Guadagnino, Tilda Swinton and Dakota Johnson all worked together on A Bigger Splash. Tilda and Dakota became quite friendly on that film, and Guadagnino and Tilda are obviously very close as well. That explains why the three of them decided to work together on Suspiria too. Anyway, I’m kind of in love with this header photo of Tilda and Dakota. They both look like bad bitches.

There’s a lot of fashion to cover, so I’m putting photocall and premiere photos together for the cast. Dakota wore Dior for both the photocall and premiere – I actually adore both looks completely. The white dress is simple and beautiful and the red gown is so dramatic. Love it.

Tilda also chose the same designer for her photocall and premiere looks: Haider Ackermann, one of her go-to designers. I don’t like the citrine look – too fussy and school-marmish.

I really appreciate the fact that Mia Goth eschews the typical starlet look – she does her own thing and she looks unique. She wore a simple Valentino dress to the photocall, and an interesting Givenchy for the premiere. I’m not in love with either of these looks, but they’re not flat-out bad either. The Givenchy would be stunning without the cutouts.

Chloë Grace Moretz wore MiuMiu for the photocall and she made me laugh – a true, genuine lol at these terrible pants. OMG. They’re awful. Deliciously awful. She wore Louis Vuitton to the premiere – also terrible.

    In the header photo, I actually liked Tilda’s citrine look very much — in the sunlight, only the top bit and her sunglasses. Indoors, full-length it’s pretty dreadful. Dakota killed it all the way around. Mia Goth’s Givenchy is gorgeous. Even with the cutouts with her build, but I agree without the cutouts it’s a home run.

  3. Harla says:

    I have to admit that some days I enjoy the horrible fashion so much more than the gorgeous fashion and I think today is one of those days! That citrine dress on Tilda is truly horrifying, god I love it!

  4. Huda says:

    I love Mia Goth’s whole aesthetic. It works well for her.

    Chloe Grace Moretz needs a fashion intervention – she’s got a knack for finding unflattering outfits.

    Tilda is Tilda, whether it’s flattering (red) or not (yellow!).

    Dakota is just fashion and acting oatmeal to me. I can’t muster any enthusiasm.

    • ichsi says:

      100% agreed. The red Dior is quite glamorous and would sing on pretty much any other wearer than Dakota. The most boring person in Hollywood and the reason why I’m pretty reluctant about Suspiria. Love all of Mia Goth’s looks though!

  5. CharliePenn says:

    I don’t hate Chloe’s Louis Vuitton! But those pants! No!
    I also came here for some Tilda Swinton Alien Stunting Fashion Realness… and I was disappointed :(

  6. Rainbow says:

    Ι know that Tilda is considered a fashion icon but she creeps me out. Maybe is the lack of eyebrows.

    Chloe looks terrible. I only like Mia’s Givenchy look.

  7. Chaine says:

    I actually would like the citrine dress on her if not for the saggy waistline. The red one just swallows her up, I don’t like it. Dakota looks lovely, both dresses are wonderful and she seems as if she is finally comfortable with herself in the spotlight.

  8. minx says:

    Mia Goth’s Valentino looks like 70s flight attendant.
    Chloe, oh dear. How could she look in the mirror and think she looked good?

    • TandemBikeEscapee says:

      I think Mia Goth brought the sexy avant garde, a favorite personal combo. Feathers are like fur, they are controversial; with fashions disasters like Chloe’s , birds breathe a collective sigh of relief, as this will NOT become a thing.

  9. Elisa says:

    Dakota Johnson looks absolutely lovely in the white dress. the red one looks kinda cheap.
    No comment on the other dresses/ladies. O_o

  10. BigGirl says:

    Chloe’s outfits is we what Mrs. Roper wore when she was young.

  11. Rescue Cat says:

    Chloe looks like she got her feet stuck in a bird’s nest.

  12. sommolierlady says:

    No to almost all of these. Horrible color choices. Mia’s second look is the best by far.

  13. Gailly says:

    I kinda love the citrine outfit and shoes! It’s working for me.

  14. Other Renee says:

    Dakota looks fabulous in both outfits. I want to know how her white dress manages to defy gravity.

    I do like Mia’s cutout dress. I even like the cutouts. She’s got the figure for it.

    The rest look silly. Tilda scares me.

  15. Ana Paula says:

    Mia Goth looks a lot like her grandmother (Brazilian actress Maria Gladys) when she was younger. She looks beautiful in the Givenchy.

  16. Smee says:

    CGM looks like she’s standing on a little pile of hay while wearing ugly pants.

  17. Rose says:

    I find Dakota so beautiful,much more so than the typical perfect looking startlet if that makes sense? And her body is fantastic in the fifty shades movies . Chole is adorable but she just has an awkward square body shape that is hard to dress .

  18. Marigold says:

    That white dress needs a hoik. I hate that sliding down look that seems to have taken over strapless dresses of late.

    I am over Johnson’s fringe as well. Some women look perpetually 8 with bangs and she’s one of them.

    • Myrtle says:

      Dakota Johnson has a very high forehead. She really needs the bangs for proportion. Personally, I love her haircut! It perfectly frames her very pretty face.

      • Dee Kay says:

        I think Dakota Johnson’s face and hair in the red evening dress looks truly fab. I like the white ensemble better overall, but her makeup in the red look is brilliant. Maybe because she often (and I think many actresses these days) go for the “underdone” makeup look more often. But I like old school dramatic Hollywood starlet makeup sometimes!!

  19. SJhere says:

    I guessing the designer paid extra to have CGM agree to wear those ugly and stupid pants out to an event like this. As they say “any publicity is better than no publicity”.

    If she had worsen something classy and pretty .. Much less press coverage.

  20. Paris says:

    I love Tilda. She is an ICON.
    Dakota looked fantastic – make-up, hair, accessories and gowns. She nailed it.

  21. Lazy af rn says:

    Mia’s first outfit for the photocall is actually Louis V. and I I really enjoy it. She looked really easy breeezy beautiful there same w Dakota

  22. Veronica S. says:

    What a clever shoe choice on Tilda’s chartreuse dress. It’s a great clash that manages to be interesting rather than completely bonkers.

  23. nell Graham says:

    Chloe, girl, just no. I am beginning to suspect she doesn’t know how to dress for her figure and is uncomfortable. Mia looks fabulous, as does Dakota.. There’s something so blandly unique about Dakota that I enjoy.

  24. Lilly says:

    I love looking at dresses, but most of these have me saying: “My eyes! Will no one think of my eyes!?!” or “meh.” I generally always want to provide, at least, a “good try” or “I appreciate what they were trying for.” I will say the second Tilda red dress I do sort of love/covet.

  25. Anare says:

    Why is Chloe wearing a black polo with those crazy pants? WTF? TBH, if she wore a fitted black tanktop I would have loved that look, crazy pants and all.

  26. Bread and Circuses says:

    Dakota in that white dress looks as good as I’ve ever seen her look. The dress, the hair, the makeup — she looks breezy and flawless at the same time.

  27. K says:

    Chloe Grace Moretz looks physically more beautiful every time I see her photographed, yet her style gets more and more clownish. Girl cannot resist a pair of fugly pants.

  28. Dee Kay says:

    I am a ginormous fan of Tilda Swinton, she can do no wrong, acting-wise, in my eyes, and am also a pretty enthusiastic fan of Dakota Johnson and Chloe Moretz. But having seen (most of) the original Suspira, I won’t be seeing this movie. I would really love to see these three actresses together as they are among my faves (throw in Cate Blanchett and I’m ALL IN), but I wish it were something else, like Steel Magnolias but with a harder edge and set in New York or something.

  29. truth hurts says:

    For some reason Dakota Johnson rubs me the wrong way.

    • Sara says:

      Is it that the only reason she gets acting jobs is because her parents are famous? Someone in one of the above comments referred to her acting skills as oatmeal and I have to agree.

  30. bella says:

    Dakota looks stunning in the white dress, and I gasped when I saw Mia Goth in the Givenchy! she looks gorgeous!!!

  31. Gaby says:

    Chloe dresses as badly as she acs. Dakota looks beautiful.
