Tilda Swinton denies she is a modern fashion icon, despite modelling for Yves Saint Lauren and playing muse to design duo VIKTOR AND ROLF.

The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Lion, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE star insists her unique style has little to do with her own tastes, and is simply the result of many mismatched freebies.

She says, "I'm not a fashion muse in any shape or form.

"I just have some very close friends who work in fashion, and they happen to slip me free clothes from time to time.

"I'm certainly not an authority on style or a fashion icon. I would be hopeless at it anyway - there's so much pressure involved."
