Tilda Swinton turns model for Chanel Pre-Fall 2013 campaign shot by Karl Lagerfeld. The actress sports the Scottish-inspired attire and poses against the background full of medieval images. The actress looks absolutely stunning in a tartan detailed coat decorated with rich embellishments and a white dress with an embroidered neck.
Tilda Swinton Models Chanel Paris-Edimbourg Collection
The actress looks effortless as usual sporting her blond hair in an edgy style or combed back. Karl Lagerfeld said that Swinton was chosen as face of the collection because:
Tilda perfectly embodies the Paris-Edimbourg collection. She is of course Scottish, but more than that she is a modern woman, a timeless icon of elegance.
The collection that’s full of royal-worthy and somewhat costume-y designs is very extensive as usual comprising coats, dresses, skirt ensembles, and trousers made of plaid, tartan, and argyle-patterned fabrics.
The latest campaign comes after a series of ads shot by Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel resort, spring, and eyewear collections. The latter was fronted by Laetitia Casta who attended the 2013 Cannes Film Festival along with Swinton.
This isn’t Tilda Swinton’s first fashion gig. She was chosen as face of Pringle of Scotland’s womenswear and menswear in 2009 and modeled jewelry for Pomellato brand. Besides she did a few very fashionable and artsy magazine photoshoots for publications like W Magazine, Dazed & Confused, AnOther Magazine, . As for her style, the actress prefers refined minimalism though occasionally can be seen in bright statement looks, which says she isn’t afraid of experimenting with fashion.
The campaign turned out beautifully, though I wished to see more of those dramatic dresses, oh well, the top image could be the only one in the campaign, it’d still looked great. What do you think about it?
