Vanity Fair 1986

Vanity Fair has posted a series of old shots of famous faces that have graced the pages of their magazine over the years, including beautiful shots by Sheila Metzner.

Since Vanity Fair’s inception 100 years ago, our prescient editors have always had a knack for spotting soon-to-be icons. As we celebrate 100 years of anointing cultural stalwarts in our hallowed pages, we’re taking a look back some of the biggest stars that first caught our eye as young up-and-comers, from Pablo Picasso to Julia Roberts to a 25-year-old President Barack Obama.

Helena designs Dorothy-inspired shoes for Save the Children

Helena has designed a fabulous pair of shoes inspired by The Wizard of Oz to raise money for Save the Children. The shoes are part of the Walk Tall collection, a collaboration between Upper Street and charity Save the Children, where celebrities were invited to design a pair of shoes inspired by ‘childhood dreams and memories’:

I remember watching ‘The Wizard of Oz’ as a little girl. Since then, I’ve always wanted a pair of shoes that, like Dorothy, would get me home quick if I clicked three times – perfect for when you’ve suddenly had enough at a party or you’ve been filming all day and want a quick getaway.

The shoes, made of silky Italian satin and hand-decorated with Swarovski crystals, feature a quirky yellow-brick-road-patterned leather lining. You can bid for your own pair now on eBay, as well as entering a competition to have your own design created using Upper Street’s shoe designer. Bidding for Helena’s design ends 06th October and the competition for your own design closes 25th October.

The actress (and partner of Tim Burton) will also be at the Festival on behalf of Burton and Taylor, which is screening as part of the “Focus on UK Film”.

Anglophenia Woman of the Year: Semi-Finals

Well, she managed to defeat Hermione Granger with ease but the next round won’t be so plain sailing as Helena finds herself up against the formidable River Song, Doctor Who‘s Alex Kingston. Already way behind in votes, Helenaists will have to up their game to win this round, so get voting! Remember, you vote every hour.

Woman of the Year: Quarter-finals

Helena has sailed into the quarter-finals of BBCAmerica‘s Anglophenia Fan Favourites Tournement for Woman of the Year, beating opponents Emma Thompson and Freema Agyeman. She is now up against fellow Harry Potter star, Emma Watson and looks set to win the round with ease – but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t still vote for her! I have a sneaking suspicion that Helena could be up against Doctor Who‘s Alex Kingston, who is the current favourite to win the crown, in the near future!

Exclusives: on the set of ‘Fatal Deception’

I have added 24 exclusive polaroids shot from the set of the film Fatal Deception. My apologies for the rather obstructive tag, but these costume continuity shots are from my own personal collection of photographs. They are not to be posted elsewhere without my prior consent.

Woman of the Year: Round 2
