The Classic: Tilda Swinton in The Grand Budapest Hotel

No matter how old you are, it's important to remain stylish.

Let's take a few minutes to discuss Tilda Swinton in this film. Whilst audiences and critics alike have been astounded by her physical transformation in Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel, I was more impressed by the costume design. 

How fabulous. Being able to see an elderly female character who is the stereotypical "super-rich widow" is something that does not happen as often as it should. Particularly one who obviously still cares about fashion.

Costume designer Milena Canonero is somewhat of a legend herself, having worked on films such as A Clockwork Orange (1971), Out of Africa (1985), The Godfather: Part III (1990) and Marie Antoinette (2006), to name a few. 

Let's all hope we'll still be dressed in our finest when we're in our 80s.
