About the dress
Helena has this classic Vivienne Westwood hourglass dress in three colours: black, blue and violet. Helena debuted the dress at the 78th Annual Academy Awards in March of 2006 (bottom, left). She wore the black version in May of the same year at the 59th Cannes Film Festival for the premiere of Volver (top, left), and again three years later to accept her Best Actress award at the Empire Awards in 2009 (top, middle). The dress was last seen at the Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards in 2013 (top, right). For the 56th BFI London Film Festival Awards, where both Helena and Tim were awarded BFI Fellowships, Helena wore the previously unseen violet version of the dress (bottom, right).
