Marc Jacobs Fall 2012 Collection

Posted on February 22, 2012

Well, there’s no denying it now. Helena Bonham Carter is a style icon. Who else do you see in practically every single one of these looks? With a backdrop set that was described as “Marie Antoinette’s version of ruins,” the association was complete, because to us, it looked more like “Tim Burton meets Charles Dickens by way of Mary Poppins,” and who else would you want to star in that movie but Helena Bonham Carter?

No matter what the inspiration, it’s obvious Marc Jacobs is having a lot of fun with shapes and proportions here, offering up yet another highly theatrical runway show with gorgeous pieces that’ll look a lot different when they’re not so distractingly styled. We love his big gay sense of drama, even if it does sometimes cause eyestrain as you try to figure out just what everyone’s wearing, exactly.

Oh, and the hats are TO DIE.
