Tilda Swinton for Candy Magazine
The cover: Candy magazine’s fourth issue
The model: Tilda Swinton
The garb: A shimmering gold lamé dress by Antony Price
The photographer: Xevi Muntane
The final word: Wowza.
Just when you’re thinking to yourself, nothing about Tilda Swinton’s wardrobe appearances could ever shock me no more, well there ya go: a flaming dress fit for an evil queen frames those giant bronze curls, opening up to aggressive stage makeup. Gone is our fair dame in always awkward-looking Yohji Yamamoto; for Candy’s cover it’s all fire and ice.
With a downward gaze and down-turned lips, this Tilda straddles the gender issue and cracks our whip. She owns that dress, she’s got it gripped in her long pointy nails. We’ve always respected her talent and red carpet oddity, and frankly we can’t really blame her for reminding us every now again of who’s boss around here.
