Best of 2014

With 2014 drawing to an end, it is time to take a look back at the year! While it was a busy year for Helena in terms of filming, it was fairly quiet for us fans – not much in the way of news!

Favourite Photoshoot of 2014
Well, there were only three photoshoots/portrait sessions to choose from this year! The gorgeous portrait by Mario Testino for Vanity Fair magazine definitely wins this year. Helena looked gorgeous wearing Rosie Red Corsetry and Couture. My only wish would be that we could have seen more from this lovely shoot.

Favourite Old Photoshoot Added in 2014
Again, not many to choose from this year! I personally quite like this black and white shot by Claudio Porcarelli, circa 1997, and this additional photo from a photoshoot at Helena’s home in 2006 by Marcus Dawes. I’ll have to make an extra special effort to source more old photoshoots in 2015 so that there’s a greater selection next year!

Favourite Outfit of 2014
Definitely this cute little outfit worn at the Secret Winter Gala for Save the Children! Helena wore a modified Mercy corset by Agent Provocateur with a glittery layered skirt that looks like it may be from Les Habitudes (not confirmed!) and a limited edition pair of Wizard of Oz shoes that Helena designed for charity in partnership with Upper Street last year. For that extra bit of Helena quirkiness, she added a fluffy tail and adorable ears.

Favourite Project of 2014
For me, it had to be parts two and three of the Worricker Triology! I can’t say I really understand what was going on – spy dramas tend to go over my head – but it was fantastic to see Helena acting alongside her good friend, Bill Nighy. I must confess though, I haven’t actually seen The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet yet!

Favourite Film/Television Still of 2014
Definitely the magical Fairy Godmother poster for Cinderella! We waited ages for a proper look at Helena in Kenneth Branagh‘s live action remake of the Disney classic, and boy, it didn’t disappoint! Helena looks awesome – and even better in the trailer!

Most Exciting News of 2014
Helena signing on for HBO pilot series, Codes of Conduct! Also starring are newcomer Devon Terrell, and Iron Man 3 actress, Rebecca Hall. Fingers crossed it gets picked up…weekly doses of Helena!

Most Anticipated Film of 2015
Both myself and Jamie are really looking forward to the release of Suffragette, and are hoping that Helena will scoops lots of awards and nominations for her role.
