Seeing this photo of her at the Met gala, I finally reached the tipping point with Tilda Swinton. Enough with the androgyny and ugliness! You’ve made your point, whatever it is! Now it’s time to put on some make-up, grow out your hair and dress normally!
I know how important Tilda is to so many factions. If you’re gay, hip or arty in any way, you totally adore her. I know, I know. You think she’s the epitome of beauty, you LOVE her daring style! You love all her movies. You love the air she breathes.
But you need to get over it. If her Oscar look wasn’t horrible enough, get a load of this awful matronly dress she wore to the Met. I don’t care who designed it, it’s still awful. Her choice of Justin Long as an accessory is really repugnant, UNLESS they are best friends in real life and she doesn’t have a ‘partner.’ It seems to me that she’s just pandering to the GLBT vote.
Everybody can stop pretending that Ugly is Beautiful, and that Less is More. It’s only More if there’s Less of Tilda Swinton.
