Tilda stands out in Seoul

Tilda Swinton made a style statement dressed in a striking over-sized coat for an appearance in South Korea.

The actress attended a press conference for her movie Snowpiercer ahead of its release in South Korea in August.

Tilda looked striking in her light brown printed jacket and chose to keep on throughout the event.

A peek at a complexion enhancing silk caramel coloured shirt could be seen under Tilda's outerwear.

The 52-year-old is known for her unusual and avant-garde way of dressing. She continued to lead in the style stakes by adding a pair of tan coloured snakeskin stilettos.

Sticking to her trademark ethereal look, Tilda kept her porcelain complexion free from make-up, and her signature cropped icy-blonde hair was put into a slightly quiffed boyish look, shaved short at the sides and then swept back off her face.

Tilda kept attention on the coat with simple and understated jewellery, choosing a few plain silver rings as an added detail.

Snowpiercer is South Korean director Bong Joon-ho's English language movie debut. Bong recently discussed Tilda's creativity in her film appearances as well as in her clothing ensembles.

"Tilda is a creator. She is an actress but she participates in with earnest when we talk about creating a character," Bong gushed.

"When I’m with her, I feel relaxed and I love how she has so many creative ideas."

Tilda starred as the cover girl for W magazine South Korea's August issue. The actress donned Chanel for the Sci-fi couture themed shoot.

As well as previously appearing in Chanel campaigns, the trendsetter has been tapped by Pringle as a brand ambassador.

Tilda contributed a long-sleeved maxi dress in super-light cashmere silk, based on a High Society bathing robe for the label's new campaign.

“It’s kind of a twinset dress, a dressing gown for a part-time goddess heading for some heady drunken dancing," Tilda described to UK newspaper The Independent.
