A British style icon

My outfit for Tilda Swinton

According to the Olympic mood IFB asked us to tell about our favourite British Style Icon.

I have no doubts.

She’s tall and thin, she’s androgynous, she’s red haired. Sometimes she looks like an alien, she’s so different from all the other female actresses. She has  diametrically opposed appearance to mine (as you could see I have a typical curvy mediterranean body shape). That’s why I love her. Inspired by her pictures I designed an outfit for Tilda Swinton. A gold, masculine but waisted jacket, with structured shoulders paired with a deep low cut and palazzo pants jumpsuit (I wanted to accentuate Tilda’s flat chest and long legs). I matched silver and gold (a futuristic and a classical color). That’s how I’d like to dress my favourite British icon. And you? Who is your favourite United Kindom icon?

Si respira spirito olimpico su IFB, che ci chiede quale sia la nostra icona di stile britannica preferita.

Io non ho dubbi!

Lei è magra e alta, androgina, con i capelli rossi e la pelle diafana. A volte assomiglia ad un alieno, così diversa da tutte le altre attrici, diametralmente diversa da me e dalle mie forme mediterranee. Per tutto questo mi piace. Ispirandomi alle immagini di Tilda Swinton, ho disegnato per lei un outfit. Una giacca di taglio maschile, ma avvitato, con spalle molto strutturate, abbinata ad una tuta palazzo dalla scollatura profondissima (ho voluto evidenziare le gambe lunghissime e il seno piatto di Tilda). Per i colori ho scelto il contrasto fra argento e oro, fra futuristico e classico. Ecco, così vestirei io la mia icona britannica preferita. E voi? Chi è la vostra icona di stile del Regno Unito?

Come al solito non dimenticate di seguirmi su bloglovin!

    Gosh….love love love Tilda. She was the best part of the movie Constantine:P Aside from her, another British icon for me would be Kate Moss, followed by Alexa Chung.
