The latest successful collaboration is in the film "I Am Love" ("Io Sono L'Amore"), an international film by Luca Guadagnino which was a hit at Sundance and other film festivals this year. In it, Tilda Swinton plays a Russian-born matriarch of an aristocratic Milanese family. Raf Simons for Jil Sander created the iconic red sheath dress, as well as the rest of Swinton's wardrobe.

To achieve a similar Upper Class Look, focus on:
- Simplicity in cut, detail and color
- Clean, tidy, and very neat hair and make-up
- Minimal jewelry - just (expensive) pearls, diamonds, gold or platinum
Let me know if any of you get to see the movie! I am intrigued by the sublime cinematography and haunting score from John Adams.
