Hilary Swank’s Latest Look

Swank donned a Balmain stretch-cotton and velvet mini tuxedo dress from the fashion house’s Fall/Winter 2015 collection at the photocall for the 2014 movie. The sophisticated number featured satin trim and gold buttons. Swank styled her look with a red clutch and black suede Christian Louboutin stilettos with a gold toe.

In You’re Not You, Swank plays concert pianist Kate, who gets diagnosed with ALS in her thirties. The movie followers her as her health worsens, and she finds companionship in her inexperienced twentysomething aspiring musician caretaker Bec, played by Emmy Rossum.

At the Tokyo Film Festival, the Oscar-winning actress promoted the film and offered young actors and filmmakers advice on making it in the tough industry.

“We’re all students of life. In the face of adversity, just continue to persevere,” said Swank. “Never give up, ever… it’s important to know what we want from [life] and to choose to actively work toward that every day.”

“I was only 8 years old when I realized I wanted to be an actor,” Swank added. “That I’m living that dream now and continuing to have opportunities to live that dream is truly a blessing. It’s something that I don’t take for granted.”

You’re Not You was released in 2014 and is currently available on Netflix and on DVD.
