So Tilda Swinton has been one of those under-the-radar actresses who consistently serves it anytime she's in a movie. The woman, with her steely, unconventionally beautiful face, lanky body and chameleon-like ability to shape-shift rarely disappoints when she's headlining a film. But in the context of cinema, she's just so, well, quotidian. Where she truly shines is when she's embracing her true love of fashion -- be it on the red carpet or in a psychedelic photo shoot. And while she's not one to shy away from the avant-garde or bizarre in terms of sartorial statements, she's the rare case of a celebrity always wearing the clothes -- not letting the clothes wear her (perhaps that's why we featured her as our own cover girl many moons ago). Regardless, this editorial for this month's W Magazine really nails how unique the actress is. Shot by Tim Walker and styled by Jacob Kjelgaard, the photos eschew any sort of conventional beauty and go straight for the gut -- they're creepy, disturbing, shocking and all-around fantastic.
Gaga better look out, 'cause Tildy is giving her a run for her money.
