Tilda Swinton, Cate Blanchett, Diane Kruger are colorful on red carpet

Actresses Tilda Swinton ('The Zero Theorem'), Cate Blanchett ('Blue Jasmine'), Diane Kruger ('The Bridge') impress on red carpets.

In a season when individual fashion expression is taking center stage, we salute the red-carpet mavericks.

When it comes to stars who do it their way, daring to step out in the unconventional and surprising, Tilda Swinton is always top of mind. A true fashion lover, she wears what she likes, often making choices with gender-bending effects and using her hair to punctuate her dramatic style.

Cate Blanchett is another fearless fashion flier. When she turned up at a screening of "Blue Jasmine" in New York wearing a Balenciaga Edition cape and gown selected by the fashion house's controversial new creative director, Alexander Wang, it was a tacit stamp of approval for the 29-year-old who showed his first Balenciaga collection in Paris in February.

Diane Kruger is so confident in her wardrobe choices that she goes without what many celebrities consider a necessity — a stylist. Seeing the results is so dazzling, it makes you wonder whether the ultimate status symbol in Hollywood might just be the one thing you can't buy: personal style.
