Helena Bonham Carter – star of a myriad of critically acclaimed films from Fight Club to The King’s Speech to Howard’s End – doesn’t embrace the movie star image she rightly deserves. Rather, she opts to go Goth.
On this day, as many, Helena looked like she would rather be in her bedroom sulking to the sounds of Bauhaus, Joy Division or the Cocteau Twins then hitting an award show. And her Goth ways don’t find inspiration from the new fangled Goths of today with their tattoos, little ironic lunchboxes or pricey hair extensions, rather she goes old school. She pulls of a way more goth look circa 1985. And it helps that she’s married to Tim Burton, who is like the god to the Goths (Edward Scissorhands, Nightmare Before Christmas and Corpse Bride…need I say more?).
Check out these photos of Helena and her Goth ways right here.
