Tilda Swinton Took Face Masks to a Whole Other Level at Venice Film Festival — PHOTOS

Tilda Swinton "Lacci" Red Carpet And Opening Ceremony Red Carpet Arrivals - The 77th Venice Film Festival

While the world copes with a global pandemic, other than mask wearing you wouldn’t know it by the photos from the Venice Film Festival.

Many of the A-listers are in attendance and participating in photo ops and red carpet events.

As for the masks, they’ve been pretty traditional cloth masks, except in the case of Tilda Swinton.

During the festival’s opening ceremony, Swinton’s “wore” a mask (it was more of a face shield and clearly not an actual mask) that was unlike any other.

The mask was sculpted by James Merry, the Iceland-based embroidery artist who’s best known as Björk‘s co-creative director.

For yesterday’s (September 03, 2020) premiere of La Voz Humana, her short film by Pedro Almodóvar, Swinton unveiled the second, a sculptural number that fanned across her face and featured two curling antennae.
