Here’s a little secret: I enjoyed Helena Bonham Carter’s Golden Globes look. From her towering hair to her mismatched shoes to her loose netting and brocade, I took it all in, and it all felt authentic. “That’s her,” I thought. She didn’t look forced, like she was trying to be too avant-garde. She just looked like Helena-freaking-Bonham-Carter!
Why haven’t we all adopted a Lady Gaga attitude towards her? She is insane…and totally awesome. She’s played deranged Death Eaters and corpse brides. Her boyfriend is Tim Burton, for goodness sakes! I’m just not satisfied when she goes tame and demure, like she did at this year’s Oscar nominee luncheon. That’s when I get uncomfortable.
Thankfully, she predicts her Oscars gown will be a “catastrophe.” (I’ll probably consider it a Helena Bonham Carter success.)
Do you like Helena Bonham Carter’s eccentric style? Or would you like her in a more tame look?
