In Character: Tilda Swinton in A Bigger Splash

While Tilda Swinton’s famous rockstar Marianne Lane remains mostly silent during her stay on the remote Sicilian island of Pantelleria in Luca Guadagnino’s 2015 film “A Bigger Splash”, her summer holiday wardrobe by then creative director of Christian Dior Raf Simons speaks absolute volumes. Harry Hawkes (Ralph Fiennes) on Marianne: “She’s the woman of the century. And I’m talking about her soul now.” A Bigger Splash 2015, Directed by Luca Guadagnino and starring Tilda Swinton, Matthias Schoenaerts, Ralph Fiennes and Dakota Johnson.

Rachael: “I’m not in the business… I AM the business.”

Bladerunner 1982, directed by Ridley Scott, starring Harrison Ford, Sean Young, Rutger Heyer, Daryl Hannah, Edward James Olmos and Joanna Cassidy.

The kind of girl who gets in to all the right parties and all the right places but would rather be somewhere else. Clay: “Are you happy Blair? You don’t look happy. Blair: “But do I look good? Less than Zero 1987, directed by Marek Kanievska, starring Andrew McCarthy, Jami Gertz, Robert Downey Jr and James Spader
