Actress Tilda Swinton in Silky Wine Colored Haider Ackermann Outfit at the Up Premiere at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival

2009 Cannes Film Festival: Tilda Swinton

Wahoo — the 2009 Cannes Film Festival has begun! It was just reported the lavish festival will be toned down this year — Vanity Fair dismissed its black-tie annual and Louis Vuitton didn't book its usual table at the amfAR dinner — but we can still expect fashion on the red carpet from the likes of Diane Kruger, Penelope Cruz, and the enigmatic Tilda Swinton.

Tilda is up first for your judging pleasure. Her monochrome bordeaux layered Haider Ackermann ensemble may also be toned down, but it sure is flattering. Doesn't she look so tall and statuesque? And the mix of materials is lovely.

This is just the amuse-bouche. Look forward to fetes hosted by Dolce & Gabbana and Dsquared2, guaranteed to provide controversial fashion fare.

i love that she just does what she wants and what she likes. its really is admirable. she looks so elegant here and the red is fab w/ her pale skin. i just wish her face wasn't so monotone. a little blush and mascara would do wonders.

I love how she always changes her hair colour. She's just never boring. I love that she's wearing Haider Ackermann, too!

I will never understand or personally like her style, but this color looks amazing on her. Just out of curiosity, is her naturally red, or was that dyed? Either way, I loved that color on her, and couldn't help but think how great it would look with this.

This ensemble is unusual but it works on her. I do, however, wish she would break down and wear some make-up finally! Pale girls can have definition too!

It's the formal version of a twinset. Ew. I generally like her red carpet choices, but this ensemble is geriatric.

The cut is flattering but the material and monochromatic outfit have an aging effect.

I agree her red carpet outfits usually aren't that great - but she is really lovely and I like this one on her.
