This week I was alerted to the culmination of a strange and powerful union by Amy on twitter.  Amy has earned her merit badge for Swinton spotting and is now an official Junior Swintologist! Applause, applause!  It seems that the Kaiser has contracted an alliance with our favorite galactic being. I wonder if Haider Ackermann is behind a force field somewhere…. but he should have seen this coming- remember the Versailles Chanel show on Wearable Wednesday over a year ago? He doesn’t understand her lack of accessories, but he understands the power! tilda-main_2

Obviously plaid is no kryptonite to her! This collection is so lovely and textural and looks so good against her rawness. You knows? More of the collection is here2 e

I think the Lagerfeld has been planning this for along time!Perhaps ever since he and Choupette sat down to split a diet coke and watch Orlando. Choupette-Lagerfeld-Cam-NET-A-PORTER

I’m going to need this all boxed up and sent to the Grievance headquarters, please. Merely for further analysis. Formal study, you know. That may or may not include me rolling around in it with 3 dachshunds. tilda-swinton-collection-chanel-paris-edimbou-L-zw952L

Cannes is Swinton’d

Tilda 1

The airspace over the Riviera practically crackled with life-affirming Tildanian vibes last evening. In a suit specifically designed by Haider Ackermann to keep her fabulousness cool during her spacecrafts re-entry, the Swinton graced the red carpet and of course, lives were changed. Her minions wore their standard Tom Ford flight suits. tilda3

I wish this picture did the fabric justice-  altho, it may just be an aura of intergalactic lux that she is projecting, but I think it’s lovely. Her eyes are so bright- she must have fed recently. tilda2

Children of the Swinton, gather in rejoicing!

Ah, do you see the cartoon bluebirds? My Swinty senses are all atingle! The docent has released our Tilda her plexiglass fortress of Swintitude and she is gracing the cover of W mag this month and in a photo shoot with some of our favorite Wearable Wednesday designers. Shall we peek? Oh yes, lets!cess-tilda-swinton-tim-walker-las-pozas-08-l

The spread is exceptionally Swinton- otherworldy, regal and a teeny bit ‘huh‘. As you’d expect. There are 2 pictures in the spread that I am not even sure she is really in- she’s that amazing! cess-tilda-swinton-tim-walker-las-pozas-13-l

These are my favorites- they have a moody quality I just love. I can even see her antennae if I squint! Go see the rest here. cess-tilda-swinton-tim-walker-las-pozas-07-l

Alright Tilda, you have dazzled us again, you may return to freeing the people of Planet Swintargon from the tyranny of Ambassador Zurg.

Friday morning Riviera Swinton Sighting!

Posted on


If you have had your Tildopplers set to Cannes you saw our ‘Oddess appear twice so far:

‘Namaste, people of earth’

In other pictures you can see she’s recycling the shoes- her winged horse had less saddle bag space than the Ton-Ton she usually takes to appearances. I like.

‘Dude- did you see I’m with tilda Swinton????’

How do other Tildanians feel about these? I think the colors are wonderful on her. Maybe not so much on Mr Murray.

Wearable Wednesday! Chanel lets us eat cake

Posted on


Ok, now this is resort wear, so technically it isn’t Ready to Wear, but people, bear with me- it is a cratepaper crazy,special tailoring odyssey and I want you to join me. Ready? We’re at Varseille with the Swinton who is being captured by the Kaiser- but nobody puts our Tilda in a corner! Not even Karls team of bobbed fembots in ground gripping shoes!

Oh, Coco. Jessica Simpson just bought these pants.

 I love this jacket.

Why are they angry- their feet can’t hurt?!

 I want this- unless the nightgown restraining her is actually part of it…

Does your pink eyeshadow make you look like you have an infection? Yeah, me too.

Well, children of the revolution, how do you feel?

A day without Tilda is a day without enviable bonestructure

Posted on Updated on


Sigh. A whole week without a Swinton sighting. How can this be? It’s just wrong. I know she is probably busy defending the universe from alien threat or having her cheekbones studied in Prague, so here is a look at some previous Swinton Apparitions to keep us going until her next movie comes out. Last years Cannes Film Festival:

The Venice Film Festival- look she has toes!

The Darjeeling Limited Premiere- she looks like a very cool spy:

Now don’t forget, little Swintons! We at Our Lady of Perpetual Swinton are counting on you to report sightings as they occur.

Time 100… 99 people and 1 mythical Beast

Posted on


I was a little disappointed with the Time 100. I felt it was a little too…..oh, whats the word….unshallow. How am I supposed to read a whole list of people who save the planet but dress so blandly? UGH. Right before I nodded off I did see this:

Oh, wait ,sorry, that was after I nodded off. This is what I saw that thrilled me- the Swinton! I knew she was active- I felt my Swinton-senses timgling and she has a new movie coming out. Check out our Tilda in her way-cool formal space onsie! Anyone for Galactic Toddies?

Surely that isn’t a nametag- who doesn’t know the Swintonian?????

Rejoice Children! The Swinton is Sighted!

Posted on Updated on


It’s been so cold without the glorious presence of our Tilda during Oscar season- shame on you academy for your foolish choices! But at last she has returned to us- with 2 Paris apparitions this week! 

 We at ‘Our Lady of Perpetual Swinton’ have been praying extra hard and here’s the reward!

Of course she is at Haider Akermann- in the shoes we all loved so much! I’m still loving that jacket…..I like this picture- all the extra space for me to photoshop the dachshunds and I into for our next Christmas card!

Can you be in two places at once? Yetis and the Swinton can! Behold- Lanvin’s show….

Psst- where ever you stand in Paris, it’s like she’s looking straight at you! She knows, yes she knows.

Tildists,  this is a lovely day for draping, don’t you think? Swintonsympatico thoughts are always welcome below.

A Swinton Sighting!

Posted on


Junior Swintonolists, my team has been reviewing the recent data from the TIL-Doppler 2000x (patent pending) and we have a sighting!

Last evening at the BAFTA’s the Swinton landed and we have a picture:

This is Celine and I have to say- she nailed it. A perfect dress for her form- not too overwhelming- oh, what am I saying? How could mere fabric overwhelm the Swinton?

Happy monday and Happy Swinton Watching Everyone!
