Tilda Swinton’s Schiaparelli gown had sleeve-gloves: love it or hate it?

75th Venice International Film Festival - At Eternity's Gate - Premiere

Here are some photos from the Venice Film Festival premiere of At Eternity’s Gate. Tilda Swinton isn’t in the film, but she was already in Venice for Suspiria promotion, and I would guess that she’s probably friendly with Julian Schnabel, who directed it. Mostly I just want to talk about Tilda in this Schiaparelli gown. As it turns out, Kim Kardashian’s gloved Met Gala look was a harbinger of fashion disasters to come. Sleeve-gloves are the future. And they are hideous. Honestly, this whole look is terrible.

Naomi Watts in Dolce & Gabbana. I’m still sad that women wear D&G, but honestly, this is one of the better looks that Naomi has worn throughout this film festival. I think her stylist was on holiday or something, because Naomi’s fashion parade has been rough. This is fine though.

Chloë Sevigny in Chanel. While the dress isn’t my favorite thing, she looks great.

Bonus Mads Mikkelsen, looking like a snack, with his wife Hanne Jacobsen.

Here’s Natalie Portman in what I can only describe as a “ladies’ day cape.” This is from today – we’ll have red carpet photos of Portman tomorrow.

    I hope that by terrible you meant “amazing” because that’s the only word worthy of SWINTON fashion. I’ll take ridiculous sleeve gloves over Naomi’s mess any day. At least one of them understands that fashion should be fun.

  2. jessamine says:

    Naomi and Chloe should have swapped dresses.

  3. Astrid says:

    no thanks. Even if I had a great figure and a boatload of money, I wouldn’t wear the Tilda thing

  4. Chaine says:

    Not with that sleeve. Would like the glove look much better if it was a smooth sleeve hugging down the arms like skin.

  5. Anilehcim says:

    I don’t think Tilda goes for “pretty” though. I think this look is supposed to be more about art than about being any kind of desirable gown. Tilda’s entire aesthetic seems to be based around looking otherworldly and defying beauty standards. She actually reminds me a lot of David Bowie in this way.

  6. Beth says:

    Hate it. Maybe without the print of the fabric and poofy sleeves it wouldn’t be as bad, but it’s not a good look

  7. Hrefna says:

    I wouldn’t mind formal gloves coming back, but they need to be a contrast not the same pattern as the gown!

    Mads is a snack, but that’s not Hanne, maybe she’s an actress for the film? I think he has a cameo in it, perhaps he appears with her?

  8. BW says:

    Swinton: I think it’s a ONESIE!!! It looks like a pantsuit romper with attached gloves AND booties.

  9. SM says:

    Too much avantgarde in one piece for me. I love what Natalie is wearing. But honestly, it all was worth it just for Mads. That man is devine

  10. sommolierlady says:

    Love her that that is a big no.

  11. Lilly says:

    I wanted to love it, before opening the story… It just must be my mood this morning – after a three-day weekend the first day is the most difficult. So to these eyes, I only love Natalie’s dress. That cape and pocket action gots me like woah!

  12. JanetFerber says:

    I love Tilda in this. Understand that Tilda operates in another sphere (beautiful alien deigning to step foot on earth) and I always appreciate her outfits based on her non-earthling status. I know it sounds weird, but this is truly my best grasp of the phenomenon that is Tilda Swinton– killer actress and killer fashionista (from another planet).

  13. Pandy says:

    The pattern is just so ugly on her dress. Big nope

  14. JanetDR says:

    I never hate Tilda’s choices! I just wouldn’t wear it 😃
    Chloe’s look is the best!

  15. Nikki says:

    I love Tilda immensely, but this dress is a giant NO. Even she can’t elevate it beyond the hideous. The Empress is wearing no beautiful clothing, folks.

    This isn’t Mads’ wife lol
