Happy birthday, Tilda Swinton! The accomplished actress turns 56 today—and considering the breadth of her decades-long career, she has a lot to celebrate.
Up next, the actress will steal scenes in War Machine (a satire starring Brad Pitt), Okja (an action-packed drama from the director of Snowpiercer), and Suspiria (a grisly thriller set in the ballet world).
In addition to being a master of disguise (remember her unrecognizable turn in Trainwreck?), an Oscar winner, a mother of two, and a bender of modern gender norms, Swinton is also a well-established style icon—plus, she’s just generally very likable and we think she’d make the ideal celebrity bestie. From androgynous pantsuits to pastel gowns, Swinton makes any and every look her own, and wears it with a confidence that’s hard to match.
In honor of the Doctor Strange star’s unique fashion sense, we’ve collected her absolute best red carpet looks.
