Harper’s Bazaar Magazine

June Edition

June edition of Harper’s Bazaar, photographed by Tom Craig.

Helena will feature of the cover of the  edition of Harper’s Bazaar magazine, which will be available to buy from 04th May. Helena was photographed by Tom Craig, and wears a limited edition Alberta Ferretti dress on the regular cover (pictured left)

Helena Bonham Carter made her name as the quintessential English rose in period dramas, but then subverted this image with darker roles. In the wake of separating from her partner Tim Burton – who has produced her latest film, Alice Through the Looking Glass – she discusses love, loss and living next-door to the ex.

Subscribers will receive a limited edition cover, which can be viewed in our gallery. Helena wears a dress by Stella McCartney, Burberry coat, cat mask by Piers Atkinson, and Gillian Horsup earrings.

‘A Night Of Motown’ For Save The Children

Helena once again hosted a fundraiser for Save the Children, which has been an annual event since 2012. Her co-host was Sir Alan Parker, and the event was held at The Roundhouse in London. A Night of Motown raised an incredible £2.1m. Helena is wearing Stella McCartney.

Over 360 guests were transported from Motown’s roots in sixties’ Detroit, through to the modern artists who are still inspired by this incredible blend of soul, R’n’B, gospel and pop.

Performances featured Mary Wilson, founder of The Supremes, the legendary Tito Jackson from the Jackson 5, soul-pop sensation John Newman, singer songwriter Lemar and a surprise return performance by Beverley Knight who had the whole room on their feet.

Offering inspiring stories about Save the Children’s work were Sir Alan Parker, Chair of Save the Children International, and Dora Loewenstein, who spoke movingly about her visit to Zaatari refugee camp.

The night’s fundraising included live and silent auctions, with fantastic prizes including Stevie Wonder’s very own harmonica, original artwork by Tim Burton and the chance to watch an England football match with none other than David Beckham.

‘London’s Burning’ Book

Helena’s friend Azzi Glasser has shared this photo on instagram of herself and Helena, featured in a book called London’s Burning, which launches tomorrow. The photograph is by Katie Martin. I may be wrong, but I do recall Helena mentioning that she has a traditional Gypsy wagon in her garden for Nell, so I’m wondering if this is it!

Details from the publisher’s website describe the book as a collection of portraits from a creative city. The author is Hossein Amirsadeghi, and the book is available for pre-order on Amazon at the price of £58.00, and will be released 19th October 2015.
