We love you, Helena Bonham Carter.

People say to us, “T Lo,” they say, “Why do you attack my favorite star for dressing like a crackhead but you praise Helena Bonham Carter?” This is usually asked of us when we rail against Johnny Depp for looking like an elderly gay wind chime. THIS. This is why we praise HBC. Because she sticks to her steampunk aesthetic, remaining true to herself, but she wears high-end fashion that suits her really well and manages to pair it with fun or interesting items. She PUTS THE EFFORT IN. Her hair is done, her makeup looks great, she’s wearing Marc Jacobs and she’s sporting a kickass pair of shoes and a really fun purse. She’s every inch Helena Bonham Carter from head to toe, but she’s totally red-carpet-ready. It’s not at all an easy thing to be red carpet-appropriate and still stay true to your own quirky style. That she manages to do it over and over again is a testament to her sense of style and her dressing skills. Johnny Depp (and others of his ilk) hit the red carpet looking no different than they do when they’re out running errands.
