A very happy birthday to our wonderful Helena, who is 47 today! We all hope that Helena had a lovely day with friends and family.
You may have already seen it on Tumblr, but just in case you haven’t: Daniella is organising a fan book for Helena’s birthday this year! If you would like to take part, you can read the guidelines here. All entries should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org (please don’t send them to myself or Jamie – it’s not us this year!).
The deadline for getting your entries in is 12th May.
So it turns out that some of the outfits that Helena was seen wearing in her recent photoshoot are from the 2013 Pre-Fall Collection by Alexander McQueen. We’re still none-the-wiser as to where or when the final shots will appear, but I thought I’d share! There are several others in the collection that I find would really suit Helena, so I hope they let her dress up in some more!
Edit: thank you to Emily for sending us a link to TheFashPack which says that the shoot is for an upcoming issue of British Vogue magazine. Even better, she may even be on the cover!
As 2012 draws to a close, we thought we would take a look back over the year and share with you our favourite Helena…isms! Feel free to share your own fond memories of 2012 with us either in the comments or the chat board!
We would also like to wish all our fellow Helena-fans a very Happy New Year – and Helena & family, of course! All the best for 2013 xxx
Favourite interview this year
I have chosen Helena’s interview for Harper’s Bazaar magazine because not only were we treated to two fairytale-esque portraits, we also got a behind-the-scenes video and a wonderful, insightful interview. I also think Stella magazine deserves a mention for the sexy yet elegant shots by Gustavo Papaleo (I’m not very good at this choose-one-winner lark, shhh!)
A very big Happy Birthday to Helena and Tim’s son, Billy, who turns nine today! Hope he has had a wonderful day with friends and family.
