For her glamorous appearance, she also chose a black and white combination of a floor-length skirt with an implied mullet cut and a sleeveless blouse with a flounce collar. Swinton had her short hair pulled back from her face so that her silver statement earring was shown off perfectly. The actress kept her make-up subtle, she only put on some blush and a light brown lipstick.
