No one can dress as punk as Tilda Swinton.

The "We Need To Talk About Kevin" star styled her hair into a massive tall quiff/modern-day mohawk at the Cannes 2013 premiere of "Only Lovers Left Alive" on May 25.

At first we thought the 52-year-old was channeling Flock of Seagulls without the bangs, then we thought she was going for a fresh take on the bouffant but then we realized: It's Tilda freakin' Swinton. She copies no one! (Heck, she even sleeps in a see-through box and calls it art.)

The eclectic Brit opted to wear a disco-esque gold Haider Ackermann ensemble which featured a shimmery loose top with long sleeves and matching trousers which covered her feet. Perhaps Swinton didn't want to risk having a wardrobe malfunction à la Rosario Dawson or maybe she just wanted to be comfortable.

Besides, could you picture Tilda wearing a dress with a thigh-high slit?
