Helena Bonham Carter: Vogue UK

Saturday, June 1, 2013

Stop the presses! When I saw this exquisite photo shoot featuring Helena Bonham Carter, in Vogue UK, I had to put a post together.

I've always admired Helena Bonham Carter and her acting. She is one hell of an actress! I love British actors. There's a depth about them. Helena's acting career, goes all the way back to 1983! I really need to Netflix some of her older works. Do you have a particular favorite? I only started following her in 2000.

Another thing I like about her, is that she doesn't bite her tongue. She says what she means! She means what she says! HaHaHa What you see, is definitely what you get.

What's really exciting is she's playing Elizabeth Taylor in a BBC TV Movie. I hope we're able to see it in the States. I'm also a huge Tim Burton fan. He has a couple of movies I didn't like, but for the most part he's a genius. They're definitely a match made in heaven. I've never seen two people compliment one another more in all my life. HaHaHa Share your thoughts on Helena! I'm loving these headpieces. Keep calm and carry on with your weekend peeps! Cheerio!

It's so lovely seeing Helena wearing something that's a little out of her normal outfits. Not to say that I prefer these, but it's refreshing!

Wow, she looks really stunning in these pictures. I had no idea she's going to be playing Elizabeth Taylor! She is indeed a very good actress. I'm so use to her being in dark films that it'll be really interesting to see her play Elizabeth Taylor!

Jennifer Fabulous said...

That woman is FLAWLESS. I've seen the cover, but this is my first time seeing the editorial and my breath has been taken away...

Imogen said...

Wow these pictures are so stunning. She looks really different, it took me a moment to recognise her. As Elizabeth Taylor, I think that would be really interesting.

Elrese Voges said...

She's so well known for her quirkiness, I normally wouldn't associate her with beauty, but honestly, she looks like a goddess in this shoot! Have a fab Sunday babe :-) x x x

She is brilliant, and I've loved her since seeing her in A Room With A View. But is she really going to play Elizabeth Taylor? I don't know that I can imagine her as Liz Taylor; this should be interesting!

Anya Jensen said...

I love her - quirky, genius, stunning, and she doesn't take herself too serious. These images are exquisite - she is such an amazing actress and her pairing with Tim Burton creates magic :)
Have a splendid day love,
