Fashion blogs are a-buzz about Tilda Swinton’s appearance in the Spring/Summer 09 issue of Another Magazine, and for good reason. The stoic, elvish actress has finally been photographed in a way that optimizes her stature, personal style, and offbeat charisma. Photographer Craig McDean and stylist Panos Yiapanis tap into the Scottish beauty’s angular aesthetic by posing her on a platform and contorting her in ways fitting of the couture she’s wearing. So, while the images function as fashion photography, they’re also great portraits of a distinctive actress. You can view the entire shoot here.  —Lindsay Sakraida
