Helena Bonham Carter just wacky enough for Marc Jacobs

By  |  3 Comments

Some of you may hate her for her predictably inexplicable fashion sense (and her cartoonishly evil character in the Harry Potter movies), but Helena Bonham Carter’s got some style cred alright – she’s fronting the latest Autumn/Winter 2011 campaign for Marc Jacobs.

A leaked image shows the Vanity Fair 2010 best-dressed lister in a pink sequined dress from the designer’s Fall collection, looking like an odd milkfish that’s been left out of the water for far too long but enjoying the moment nonetheless, and we love it. We wanted to ask what’s up with the hat (also from Marc Jacobs’ Fall 2011 runway), but alas, this is Helena Bonham Carter.

While Ms. Bonham Carter looks almost too bendy to be real in this photo, it’s actually the photographer, Juergen Teller, who leaked the image onto the web – so there will be no Photoshop allegations here.

HBC joins Marc Jacobs’ list of surprise campaign stars, which includes then-13-year-old Dakota Fanning and Victoria Beckham.

Dear Ms. Bonham Carter, could you please do Corrie Nielsen’s F/W 2011 campaign too? She made a couple red carpet pieces that would be just perfect for your style.

    Why would you hate someone for their fashion sense? That’s pathetic…
