2. She can spend a day sleeping in the MOMA as part of a performance artwork and it’s cool instead of eye roll-y.

Titled “The Maybe,” the piece just involves Tilda randomly spending a day here and there sleeping in a glass box at the Museum of Modern Art. It makes so much sense because she’s not a social media whore, and one of her best looks is pajamas.

3. She can wear her pajamas on a red carpet and look better than anyone else there.

6. When she does wear color, it’s pretty much not color.

Color needs her more than she needs color.

11. Franca Sozzani wants to be part of Tilda’s “Lean In” circle — and not the other way around.

12. She’s one of the few actresses than can pose like a high fashion model.

Can you see Anne Hathaway or Jennifer Lawrence pulling this off? No. No, you cannot.

13. She reacts appropriately when asked to wear completely absurd pieces of jewelry.

17. And even though she wears so many all-white looks, she’s never stained.

And she never carries a purse so you know it’s not bleach pen wizardry either.

18. She almost never wears flashy jewelry, but when she does it looks like it belongs.

Instead of looking like she’s trying really hard to show off the diamonds she borrowed.

19. In fact, even when she looks kind of bad, she just looks amazing.

No one else would make ANY sense of these pants, that’s for sure.

20. And even when she looks a bit of a mess, it just works somehow.

Because she’s Tilda Swinton and she rules at everything involving wearing clothes/existing.
