Last night, the Museum of Modern Art hosted a tribute to Tilda Swinton in New York City which, predictably, lured out some of the city’s more fashionable denizens, including Anna Wintour, Karl Lagerfeld, Alexa Chung, Jessica Biel, Karlie Kloss and more.
Here’s what they work, ranked on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being Most Tilda).
Lauren Santo Domingo starts things off with a 5. Swinton is fond of the maxi skirt/minimal top combination, but we can’t really see her in something so ruffled.
Lupita Nyong’o is hovering just above a 1 with this Chanel look–but only because we can really see it on Blake Lively (the anti-Tilda).
Alexa Chung wore Chanel Couture–and spectacular shoes! Thanks to the unusual proportion at the shoulders, we’ll give this a 4 in terms of its Swintonness.
Wintour, in Chanel, at a 2.
Bee Shaffer‘s look is too busy for Swinton but bold enough, so we’ll give her a 3.
Cory Kennedy sets the curve with a volumetric 0.
Here we go! Imogen Poots snags a 7 with her unconventional black mullet dress.
Jessica Biel, in Chanel, with a 6 as well–hear us out! While the neck embellishment isn’t quite Swinton-esque, the woman loves crisp whites and metallics (and we bet she has similar shoes).
Also, Biel decided to weird herself up a little with teal eyeliner.
Karlie Kloss in a bodycon mini and leopard print heels. Possibly in the negative.
Leigh Lezark in a black dress and very un-Tilda thigh highs. A 2.
Although Lorde wore exactly what every goth teenager would want to wear to a MOMA-hosted event featuring Karl Lagerfeld, we can’t imagine Swinton in white tights or a choker. Still, the look’s overall unconventional qualities give it a 3.
Now we’re talking! Sofia Coppola lands a hard 8 in a silk top and tailored but effortless trousers. Way to be on-theme.
And Swinton herself, looking outrageously lovely in tweed and white trousers. A 9, probably.
