Tilda, Warrior Princess

I am always captivated by women of unique beauty and talent.  Tilda Swinton has an extraordinary ability to project anything and anybody.   I love how she brings to life the most dramatic visions of  great designers.  Pringle of Scotland has tapped her again to be the face of their Fall 2011 campaign:

Style.com reported she called her new look for the shoot, a blunt, front-combed shag, with heavy bangs, “warrior girl fringe.” Fantastic!

Tilda is always at the top of my list of style stars, both in life and in her films.  Forthwith, some of my favorites:
