I personally love Helena Bonham Carter and I kinda did a fan-girl scream when my eyes saw these pictures, because no matter how odd the creation, Helena wears it amazingly and always looks awesome!
Now back in June there was a sneak-peep of Helena Bonham Carter modelling for Marc Jacobs A/W2011 campaign, above is the refresher….
Now…. here are the rest of the ads for you to view – you can see the British actress photographed in all kinds of funky poses. I especially adore the way Helena uses pieces from the Fall collection as props for her rather quirky shots.
The lovely lady was photographed by Juergen Telller, it was obviously a fun filled shoot and a fearless campaign which really showcases Helena’s many different facial expressions.
Moving onwards and Vintage fans were out in force over the weekend at the Vintage at Southbank Festival; the brainchild of Red or Dead designers Wayne and Geradine Hemingway. The three day event attracted a whole bevy of retro-lovin’ ladies and gents who were completely decked out in their vintage finest….naturally.
Each of the six levels of London’s iconic Royal Festival Hall were taken over by purveyors of rockabilly, mod, soul, funk, disco, electro and punk.
Speaking about the festival, Wayne says “Vintage is about great design, great ideas and great moments in time that are worthy of evaluation. We wondered if it would be possible to do a festival, which was really well curated, where people could learn a little bit about the history of British creativity. In the world we are seen as style leaders. If someone were asked to name the coolest country, I’m pretty sure we’d get voted.”
It seems many people are designing lines for various shops and now it’s possible the lovely flame haired Florence Welch may be joining them.
Florence (of Florence and the Machine) has an obvious impact and influence on fashion and it is growing more each day; now reports have surfaced that she is planning to team up with Aldene Johnson to create an affordable fashion line for TopShop.
A source says “Florence wants it to reflect her eclectic, quirky style. She has thousands of unique pieces, everything from vintage gowns to garments she’s been given by Karl Lagerfeld, and would love to work with Aldene to create a line inspired by her wardrobe, like Kate Moss did.”
If this is true, it won’t be the first time that Florence as worked with the retailer – back in 2009, TopShop designed a series of bespoke stage costumes for her, she has also been a muse for Kark Lagerfeld and Frida Giannini of Gucci.
