Allow Tilda Swinton and Her Daughter to Warm Your Heart

Less than a month ago, you'd be forgiven for never having heard of the name Honor Swinton Byrne—even though she's none other than Tilda Swinton's daughter. After all, she hasn't been flexing on Instagram or tagging along with her mom to the front rows of Fashion Week, as scions are wont to do. Instead, after a quiet childhood in the Scottish highlands, the 21-year-old simply decided to quietly become an actress, as became clear at the end of last month when all of the sudden she became Sundance Film Festival's breakout star.

You better get used to seeing Byrne around; her acclaimed turn as Julie, an aspiring filmmaker who ends up falling hopelessly in love, in Joanna Hogg's The Souvenir has now taken her on to the Berlinale, or Berlin Film Festival, where she and attendees like Catherine Deneuve, Christian Bale, and Diane Kruger are currently vying for their films to take home this year's Golden Bear prize. (The Souvenir already took home the World Cinema Dramatic Grand Jury Prize at Sundance, and A24 quickly acquired the film's North American rights and promised that production will begin on a sequel this summer.)

But that's not the only reason why Byrne, whose father is the playwright and artist John Byrne, seems destined for stardom. On Tuesday morning, during a photo call for the film in Berlin, Byrne also proved herself to be a natural-born star on the red carpet—even though she was simply outfitted in blue jeans and a top that resembled a baja hoodie. Most notable, however, was her extremely enviable accessory: none other than her costar, aka her mom, with whom she was practically attached at the hip. (Swinton, fittingly enough, also plays Byrne's mom in the film.)

When was the last time you saw a celebrity look like they were genuinely having fun on the red carpet? Byrne not only carried the torch of renowned BFFs Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone, who last spread some step-and-repeat joy in late 2017, but did so at only her second-ever major event, which she and her mom essentially treated like a photo booth.

They also properly prepared for the occasion. (In case they haven't caught your eye, please note their matching metallic gold shoes.)

They certainly set the standard high for Robert Pattinson, who's set to play Byrne's love interest in the sequel The Souvenir. In the meantime, before its release, best of luck in finding someone who looks at you the way Tilda looks at Honor.
