Washington: Tilda Swinton, who is frequently praised for her unique, androgynous style, has revealed that she takes a fuss-free approach to dressing for red carpet awards shows and simply wears what her friends chose for her.
Swinton said that unlike many other Hollywood actresses, she does not enlist the help of a personal dresser when she gets ready for illustrious events.
“For me, it’s just a matter of having a box cutter to open the [dress] box. There is a little effort that goes into the planning, like, weeks ago but at this stage, it’s only a matter of opening the box,” Contactmusic quoted her as telling People magazine.
Swinton was surprised on learning about other actresses who have a slightly more high-maintenance routine when it comes to dressing for the red carpet.
“You mean there’s somebody in your hotel room who actually takes your clothes out of a suitcase and lays them out for you?” she said.
It seems that the Chronicles of Narnia star puts her trust in her friends, who send her ready to wear outfits for awards shows.
“I turn up in a pair of old corduroy trousers, and I’m very fortunate to have friends who send me boxes [with gowns]. It’s like the Cinderella complex. It’s the friends that make the effort, not me,” she revealed.
