At StyleList, we really, truly like to salute brave fashion decisions and encourage every woman to find her own style. But Helena Bonham Carter? While this look may be individual, we're just not seeing a lot of style.
Carter, nominated for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture, is a beautiful woman with a presence. She doesn't need to walk a red carpet in this sort of attention-getting getup -- hair that looks like it came straight from 1991, a Vivienne Westwood dress that does not flatter her curvy hips (and we love those!) and mismatched shoes. Oh yeah, don't forget the little sunglasses.
In a world of over-styling, where every celebrity move is calculated, it might be refreshing to see a big star break the mold. But somehow, this look feels just as deliberate, and we'd rather she went for deliberately beautiful.
