Look-of-the-Day

Helena Bonham Carter turned 45 today, and while she’s one of the most hated people on the red carpet, we kind of love that she does what she wants.  (Yes, we’re a blog dedicated to style, and whether you like it or not, Miss Bonham Carter certainly has her own unique sense of it…)  We’ve also discussed how fond we are of Colleen Atwood, the main costume designer Helena’s partner, Tim Burton, uses in the majority of his films.  Here is a still from the trio’s wacky picture, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.  As the worst baker in England, Helena plays Mrs. Lovett, a complete psychopath and devotee of Mr. Todd.  Here is one of her fantasies of the couple on a beach – in red, white and blue, she is both nautical (a great tribute to Memorial Day) and still maintains Burton and Atwood’s crazy-looking style.  And honestly, what’s a better accessory than Johnny Depp?
