The 52-year-old ageless beauty talks unconventional beauty with the magazine.
“Being beautiful was never really something I associated with people I knew —certainly not girls. Boys, maybe. Horses, yes, and certainly my great-grandmother Elsie Swinton, whose imperial grandeur was like a watermark”, Tilda tells W.
For her dramatic and high-fashion editorial, styled by Jacob K and photographed by noted Tim Walker, the ‘Only Lovers Left Alive‘ star dons avant-garde designs from Gucci, Alexander McQueen, Rick Owens, Louis Vuitton, Vera Wang, Maison Martin Margiela, Azzedine Alaia, Balmain, Acne, Prada, Celine, Armani, Rochas, Max Mara, Mary Katrantzou, Francesco Scognamiglio, Haider Ackermann, Ann Demeulemeester and Givenchy.
The hunky young men of the upcoming big screen adaptation of ‘The Perks Of Being A Wallflower’ — also starring Emma Watson — Ezra Miller, Logan Lerman and Johnny Simmons take to the cover of the September issue of Out magazine.
“[Growing up] I went from having a stutter to being a totally gay little opera singer to being, like, a really confused queer adolescent. Getting socially outcast can be the best and most informative thing that can ever happen to you because you have to learn who you are separate from the pack… I’m queer. I have a lot of really wonderful friends who are of very different sexes and genders. I am very much in love with no one in particular. I’ve been trying to figure out relationships, you know? I don’t know if it’s responsible for kids of my age to be so aggressively pursuing monogamous binds, because I don’t think we’re ready for them.”, Ezra shares with Out.

The 51-year-old English style icon trades her signature pixie-cut for dramatic fiery locks — only appropriate since this is the ‘Extra Extravagance Issue’. Photographed by Xevi Muntane, Tilda wears a custom-made Antony Price burnished gold plissé lamé couture ‘Rolls Royce’ dress.

The 65th annual British Academy Film Awards (BAFTAs) — the British equivalent of the Oscars — took place tonight (12 February) at the Royal Opera House in the UK. ‘Beginners‘ actor Christopher Plummer, ‘The Help‘ actress Octavia Spencer as well as silent film ‘The Artist‘ continued on their winning streak this award season, in their respective categories. Jean Dujardin once again upset George Clooney by clinching ‘Best Actor’, with Meryl Streep denying Viola Davis a ‘Best Actress’ win.

The 18th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were held last night (29 January) at the Shrine Exposition Center in Los Angeles. While ‘The Help‘ was the big winner of the night, it was French actor Jean Dujardin who stole the show, snatching ‘Best Actor’ right under Hollywood heartthrob George Clooney‘s nose and for the first time, this award season, creating a competitive Oscar race in the category. Clooney’s good friend Viola Davis took home ‘Best Actress’, and having won under the same category a few week ago at the Critics Choice Awards, the 46-year-old becomes the clear front-runner for the Oscar race in the category. Davis’ biggest threat comes from two of The Weinstein Company’s lovely ladies, Meryl Streep and Michelle Williams, who both won a Golden Globe two weeks ago for ‘Best Actress Drama’ and ‘Best Actress Comedy/Musical’, respectively.
Head below for all the red carpet action, where no one really stunned. They all played it safe.
‘Moneyball‘ actor Brad Pitt and ‘Young Adult‘ actress Charlize Theron are not the only ones featured in W magazine’s Annual February Movie Issue (Checkout their covers here and here), the magazine also profiles some of the actors causing the most buzz this award season — with the surprise omission of ‘The Iron Lady‘ star Meryl Streep, ‘Shame‘ hottie Michael Fassbender and newcomer Jessica Chastain.

The crème de la crème of Tinseltown came out in huge numbers last night (15 January), in celebration of the 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California. The Oscar race for ‘Best Actress’ got interesting and more intense on the night, with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) awarding Michelle Williams ‘Best Actress Musical/Comedy’ and Meryl Streep ‘Best Actress Drama’. The two lovely ladies were of course bested by ‘The Help‘ star Viola Davis at the Critics Choice Awards a few days ago. However, if there is one thing the HFPA and Broadcast Film Critics Association agree on is that George Clooney, Octavia Spencer and ‘The Artist‘ should win ‘Best Actor’, ‘Best Supporting Actress’ and ‘Best Picture’ respectively.
Now to the more exciting stuff. Checkout who wore what at the event:
The 17th Annual Critics Choice Awards were held last night (12 January). If they are anything to go by, it seems the odds in leading to the 2012 Oscars are in favour of ‘The Help‘ stars Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer, who both took home ‘Best Actress’ and ‘Best Supporting Actress’ respectively. As it was expected ‘The Descendants‘ actor George Clooney scoped ‘Best Actor’. Michel Hazanavicius’s ‘The Artist’ took ‘Best Picture’, winning him ‘Best Director’ in the process.
Elsewhere on the grey carpet, everyone went all out, giving us the first really exciting ‘red carpet’ event of the year. While the night was dominated by a lot of black, some stars still opted for a splash of beautiful colour. Head below for all the fashion.
