She dresses instead, bless her idiosyncratic heart, like a true blue, old school English eccentric. As she says, “Fashion is all about having fun. I think fashion has been hijacked by the fashion industry creating rules on what one should wear and I feel like breaking the mold and seeing that the world won’t crumble.” In the parade of perfectly put together stars with their teams of handlers, she shines with the beauty of pure originality, and that wicked sense of don’t give a damn delight. She is at once both your dotty auntie, gardening in a housecoat and Wellingtons — and Sid Vicious. And like Sid, come Oscar night, you can count on the fact that she’ll do it her way.

She’s eccentric without trying to be which is part of her charm – as opposed to the Lady Gagas of the world.
The photos below were taken when Helena Bonham Carter was on her way home after celebrating Mother’s Day with her partner Tim Burton and their children Nell and Billy. Mother’s Day must have been exhausting. I’m seeing an afternoon nap in her near future.
