Helena is Helen Mirren’s Style Icon

In a recent interview with the Daily Mail, Hollywood legend Dame Helen Mirren mentioned that Helena was in fact her style icon. Read the quote below!

Who is your style icon?
Helena Bonham Carter. I love her individuality and her personality. She has been totally consistent in her eccentricity and creativity in terms of clothing, and I think that’s the right way to approach dressing. I’m not saying Helena doesn’t look beautiful; she does. But looking beautiful is not the be-all and end-all of the whole process with her – being interesting, looking fun and comfortable are more important.

Dominic West Nominates Helena for Ice Bucket Challenge!

Well, it is getting harder and harder for Helena to avoid being drench by ice cold water, as Burton and Taylor co-star, Dominic West has nominated her for the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge! He took part in the challenge with his family after Vogue editor, Anna Wintour nominated them. Dominic has very kindly nominated the gorgeous Michael Fassbender!

Tom Hiddleston Nominates Helena For Ice Bucket Challenge

So, the absolutely gorgeous Tom Hiddleston was nominated by the charming Nathan Fillion to do the Ice Bucket Challenge for The ALS Association (Thank you, Nathan!) and he nominated Helena Bonham Carter and Sherlock star, Benedict Cumberbatch (Cheers, Tom!). For some reason, the video posted by Tom on his twitter account cuts out just before Helena’s name (and he doesn’t mention her in his second tweet), but you can watch the full version below (you’re welcome)! Hopefully, Helena will take part!

‘Refuge’ dedicated page

RefugeI am working to update the individual pages for the various charities that Helena supports and campaigns for. The first one to be given a ‘make-over’ is Refuge. Helena has been a supporter of the charity since the age of seventeen and is now a patron along with Sir Patrick Stewart and Dame Helen Mirren, among others. You may recall Helena fronting their Care or Control? campaign in 2010. You can view the new-and-improved page here.

New Layout!

We finally have a new layout design! Woo hoo! The old one has been up for so long it was getting embarrassing, but now we have a lovely, summer-themed layout! There are still a few things I need to adjust and fix, but I didn’t want to keep the site in maintenance mode for too long. Hope it wasn’t too much of an inconvenience. Enjoy!
