Tilda Swinton Is The Foxiest 84-Year-Old Around

-------

Tilda Swinton

The trailer for Wes Anderson’s latest film, The Grand Budapest Hotel (out this March), has been released, and it seems fashion’s favorite androgynous actress—Tilda Swinton—has aged a few decades to play the role of Madame D. Starring alongside Anderson favorites like Owen Wilson, Bill Murray, Adrien Brody, and Jason Schwartzman as well as Jude Law, Saoirse Ronan, Léa Seydoux, and more, Swinton (who, from the looks of it, has a steamy fling with Ralph Fiennes’ character Gustave H, before—spoiler alert—she’s murdered) is glamorous as ever while dripping in velvets, pearls, and furs. If the trailer (below) is any indication, Anderson’s flick will be one worth watching—both for its cast and, of course, its clothes, courtesy of discerning costume designer Milena Canonero.

Aliens Like To Look Good, Too

-------

At last night’s Cinema Society screening of The Host, there were no questions about the caliber of Saoirse Ronan’s performance as a young woman overtaken by body-snatching aliens—everyone loved it. But there were some queries about how to pronounce the Oscar-nominated actress’ name. During the after-party at Jimmy in the James Hotel, which attracted the likes of Olivier Theyskens, Patti Smith, and Gabourey Sidibe, guests turned to Ronan’s fellow cast members for advice. “It’s Saoir-se,” said co-star Raeden Greer. “Sounds like inertia,” she stressed.

Diane Kruger plays the film’s supreme alien invader. The actress gave a cool performance as an emotionless villain, but what really stood out were her character’s white pantsuits. “It’s actually quite silly,” the actress told Style.com. “We filmed in New Mexico and it is impossible to keep a pristine white outfit clean in the desert.” So how did she do it? “I was forever being chased by some fluffer who dusted me off and prevented me from sitting down!” Jason Wu, in particular, expressed an appreciation for Kruger’s fine-tuned on-and-off screen aesthetic. “I really came out tonight for Diane,” said the designer. “She’s one of the chicest women in the world. She just has it—there are very few people like that out there.”
