Tilda Swinton Is The Queen Of Scotland For Chanel

| Filed under: Fashion SmashionKarl LagerfeldTilda SwintonAd CampaignsChanel

This was one of Karl Lagerfeld's best ideas YET!

And that's really saying something!

Back in February it was announced that Tilda Swinton would be the new face of Chanel's Metier d'Arts Paris-Edimbourg collection, and now that ads are finally here!

Shot by Unkle Karl in Scotland's (possibly haunted) Linlithgow Palace, the 52-year-old exudes otherworldly and slightly eerie beauty, and proves that nobody could've quite pulled off these lavish, opulent designs like she does.

We'd KILL for every sumptuous piece in this collection!

Ch-ch-check the rest of the ads in the gallery (below)!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooR.I.P.InspirationTilda SwintonDance

ZOMG!!! This is wonderful!!!

If there's one thing the endings of the Silver Linings Playbook, Little Miss Sunshine, and Napoleon Dynamite taught us, it's that dancing turns sadness into smiles 100% of the time!

Our hearts continue to ache from legendary film critic Roger Ebert's passing earlier this month, but talented thespian Tilda Swinton was the guest of honor at Ebertfest 2013 this past weekend and she was dead-set on turning our frowns upside down!!!

Ch-ch-check out the Moonrise Kingdom star shake her groove thang to Barry White's You're the First, the Last, My Everything (above)!

Aww!!

Fifteen hundred people dancing together in a packed theater on the University of Illinois campus to celebrate the life of a man they admired!!! Such an ah-mazing tribute!!

We're sure Roger's widow Chaz was touched by the overwhelming sentiment!!

Tilda Swinton Takes Us On A Magical Mystery Tour In W

Tilda Swinton appears in the May 2013 issue of W magazine

Wow! This is mind-blowingly AWESOME!

Even though we expect Tilda Swinton to deliver avant-garde craziness in every magazine spread, we still get awestruck by the results!

The actress's W May cover whet our appetite earlier this week, but it's nothing compared to the surrealist images shot by Tim Walker for the inside pages, which feature Tilda in exotic landscapes and outfits!

Wearing Alexander McQueen, Mary Katrantzou, Prada, Givenchy, Maison Martin Margiela, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, and Rochas, the 52-year-old gamely exploits her unconventional looks to bring the mysterious and haunting story to life.

And it's amazing how easily she embodies each look! She's a total chameleon!

Delve fully into Tilda and Tim's mystical world in the gallery (below)!

She's at it again!!!

Tilda Swinton took a break from being an ethereal cover girl to lend her ENTIRE body for the sake of art once more.

The eccentric actress was caught sleeping in a glass box yesterday for the second time at NYC's MoMA museum for her performance piece, The Maybe.

And this isn't the last time Tilda's Z's will be put on display! The actress is scheduled to snuggle up for all to see at least four more times before the end of 2013 in various parts of the museum.

If only we knew what she was dreaming of!

Tilda Swinton covers W Magazine's May 2013 issue

Sleeping Beauty has risen!

Tilda Swinton woke up from her nap at MoMA to pose for W's May cover, and we're very pleased with the results!

The 52-year-old brings her otherworldly brand of fierceness to the magazine, capitalizing on her signature androgynous look in a puff-sleeve jacket, gauze-y headscarf, and surgical-looking white gloves.

Spooky and ethereal!

We've definitely come to expect this from the actress, but she does it so well that we can't fault her.

Now, where are those Chanel ads? We need to see them already!

roger ebert ebertfest film festival posthumus 15th annual

As the fearless film critic would likely say were he still alive, "the show must go on!"

Roger Ebert died yesterday, succumbing to complications from cancer, but his rich legacy lives on.

For the 15th year in a row, cinephiles and superstars alike will flock to Illinois to share their love of great movies at Ebertfest. The April 17-21 film festival won't be the same, obviously, without the presence of the legendary critic, but he will be there in spirit!

Plenty of celebz will be there, too!

Tilda Swinton Has Become SLEEPING Performance Art - But Only On Occasion!

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueTilda Swinton

We've long considered some of Tilda Swinton's acting roles - and even some of her fashion choices - to be performance art, but now, she has seemingly allowed her entire SELF to become a piece for observation in the world of creative self-expression!

Yesterday, the actress spent the entire day fast asleep inside a glass box at the MoMA in New York City, as part of a piece called "The Maybe," which she will apparently repeat "half-dozen more times" before the end of the year!

According to a statement from the MoMA:
