The actress has always stayed true to her unique sense of fashion. Swinton has been Chanel’s ambassador since 2013. She wore a powder blue and white power suit from the designer’s spring 2022 collection to present her new film at the Venice Film Festival.

Swinton arrived on the red carpet to launch her latest film, “The Eternal Daughter,” which premieres Sept. 6. The actress plays Julie in the mystery drama directed and written by acclaimed filmmaker Joanna Hogg. The ghost story follows a middle-aged mother and her elderly mother as they uncover their long-kept secrets when they return to their old family home.

The British Film Institute’s London Film Festival begins October 5th and runs until the 16th with over 300 films and documentaries screened in ten cities across the UK. The Oscar-winning actress is a member of the BFI and president of the jury for this year’s festival. In the first two days, there have already been plenty of sights to see, including Rebel Wilson, Lily James and Jodie Turner-Smith.
