Scottish actor, model and muse, Tilda Swinton was born in London in 1960. After graduating from Cambridge she began a career acting on stage, and later in film, winning an Academy Award for her performance in Michael Clayton (Tony Gilroy, 2007). She has played muse to fashion designers and artists alike, collaborating on a collection for Viktor & Rolf (2003) and starring in a short film by fashion designer Hussein Chalayan (Absent Present, 2005). In recent years she has been the face of campaigns for designers including Chanel (2013) and Pringle of Scotland (2010-2012), for whom she has fronted both womenswear and menswear collections.
