Those of you watching the live feed of the 2014 BAFTAs will know that Helena has arrived! I have so far added 12 HQ and 30 MQ pictures of Helena looking effortlessly gorgeous in what looks like Vivienne Westwood, with Annina Vogel bracelet, and a cracking pair of Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses. I have also been collecting pictures from various social media sites and uploading those.
Tomorrow is the night of the BAFTA television awards! Helena has been confirmed as attending, so keep your eyes pealed for pictures tomorrow, and fingers crossed she wins!
A while back, we posted about a rumoured project called 55 Steps, directed by Bille August, which was due to start filming last Summer. Presumably, the project was delayed due to filming conflicts with Cinderella and later Suffragette, but we can now confirm that the film will go ahead. Helena joins Vera Farmiga in October to begin filming; Bille August said of the story:
“It’s a story that takes place in San Francisco in 1989. It is based on a true story,” August said. The film details the real-life case of Eleanor Riise (Bonham-Carter), a woman in a mental hospital who hired a lawyer (Farmiga) to sue the medical establishment. John Goodman is also in the cast. “These two characters are completely opposite. It’s like a ying and yang story but they develop a beautiful friendship,”
A brand new teaser trailer for Helena’s upcoming Disney live-action adaptation of Cinderella has just been released. Though, don’t get too excited. It doesn’t show any film footage, it’s just the glass slipper! Watch below!
It has come to our attention that we have a problem with our main email account (staff[at]mrs-lovett.org); we are unable to send or receive emails. We are working on resolving the problem, but in the meantime, please contact either myself or Jamie directly (change ‘staff’ to our name).
Apologies if you have sent us an email recently and we have not replied – we’re not ignoring you, we just haven’t received it!
Helena attended a dinner held at Windsor Castle to celebrate the work done by The Royal Marsden, of which the Duke of Cambridge is president. The star-studded guest list included Helena’s co-stars, Emma Watson and Lily James, as well as the likes of Benedict Cumberbatch, Cate Blanchett, Cara Delevingne, Kate Moss and Emeli Sandé. While at the event, Helena shared an amusing little anecdote:
The Duke and I met before, along with the Duchess, before they were married, when I was staying on Mustique. I got very drunk at one point and I was determined to ask him to be a godfather to my daughter. He quite wisely said no. I admire him. He has got the same grace as both his parents.
Helena wore Ralph Lauren Collection Silk Taffeta Colleen gown, with diamond Sunburst hair-brooch and statement earrings.
I have added scans from the Italian edition of Vogue magazine, from 1987 – with previously unseen photographs by the legendary David Bailey! There are 6 pages in total.
I have scanned another batch of my vintage magazine collection, and I have added issues of Radio Times, the Telegraph Sunday Magazine and Premiere to the gallery. My scanner has been chopping bits of text off various pages, so if you spot any missing text please let me know (I am aware of one bit on the Telegraph scans, will re-scan soon).
I have uploaded scans of Spanish magazine Murjer Hoy (Women Today) and a very old (and battered) German television and radio magazine. I will also be adding the full scans of the Greek magazine Soul, but I have had some difficulties scanning the text, so that’ll be up later.
Today, Helena was photographed as part of the Fish Love campaign, which aims “to raise awareness of the unsustainable fishing practices that are destroying the the earth’s marine ecosystem”. Currently we do not know who will photograph her (personally, I’m hoping for Rankin, but my money would be on John Swannell), but according to their official Twitter page, the photos will be released soon! Helen McCrory was also photographed for the campaign today.
