English actress Tilda Swinton has had her fair share of image overhauls in her time, but this has to be the most dramatic yet.
The pale blonde stars in Amy Schumer's new film Trainwreck, and got totally into character for her role as overbearing magazine editor Dianna. From the long, wavy highlighted locks to the perfect spray tan (not to mention the winged eyeliner), it's all there, and it's all totally un-Tilda.
Speaking about the transformation, Tilda admitted she was excited to delve into unknown territory, and that she loved the idea of having bronzed skin for once. "The first thing I thought of was that I should be a different color. That I would need this kind of tandoori tan, which I still find amusing," she told TooFab.
"I'm very sort of pathetic that way, I find it very amusing the idea of me having a tan." The actress said the main inspiration for her look came from French magazine editor Carine Roitfeld, who she said she felt Dianna wished she could be.
"I figured that she might be basing her look on another kind of very role model of a magazine editor, who would be Carine Roitfeld… She's kind of pitched herself at that because she thinks that's like the kind of alpha female magazine editor and that was it really… she's trying to look as absolutely alpha as she can."
When we saw Tilda as the elderly Madame D. in Wes Anderson's Grand Budapest Hotel, we really thought she'd pushed the boat out in terms of transformation, but this latest one might just beat that.
Trainwreck hits cinemas here on August 14th, but for now, check out the trailer:
