Bring the SWINTON

By Glinda

Girl done brought it for W Magazine.


I find this to be much more compelling than your average Kate Moss spread, despite the lack of flowing hair and artfully spread, pouty lips.  To me, this editorial is a perfect jumping off point to discuss what qualitites people respond to in a model.  In this case, it certainly isn’t “conventional” beauty.  But I can’t take my eyes off of it, or the fabulous SWINTON.  It is her facial expression? The eyes? The clothes? The photography?  Some wonderful confluence of all of those?

The world will be safe as long as she sticks with advertising clothing and not something like crack.

    Swinton is 10 times more interesting than Moss and her ilk. She is a chameleon, and riveting to look at- did you SEE “I am love”?

  2. La Petite Acadienne Says:

    I loves me some SWINTON. She’s so interesting and unusual, but she never seems to be trying too hard…she just is who she is.

    And she is awesome.

    Plus, hello legs!!!

    Hard to believe Tilda is over 50 years old, isn’t it? She’s a great answer to the stupid belief that models (and our idea of beauty) must be adolescent or pre-pubescent, covered in make-up, and surgically pretty/perfect.

    “I Am Love” – best movie I’ve seen in years.
    She is gorgeous because she is unique. I wish I could be as effortlessly fabulous.

  5. Little Red Says:

    She looks not human. But in an interesting and beautiful way.
