Helena Bonham Carter is an actress known for her eccentric style, off beat movie roles such as The Red Queen in Alice and Wonderland and Marla Singer in Fight Club. This type of person usually isn't the typical choice for a fashion campaign, but with the label being MARC JACOBS it isn't such a surprise.
Helena is the new face of Marc Jacob's fall/winter 2011 campaign.
Marc Jacobs is known for having an eclectic array of muses, previously choosing Victoria Beckham, Dakota Fanning and musician M.I.A as faces to represent the label, each being very good at what they do. With that being said, I think Helena Bonham Carter is a great choice for MARC JACOBS. She is daring, bold and definitely unique from the masses, just like the Marc Jacobs style.
Although she is known to be on the bad side of some fashion critics (once donning two different colored shoes), her new partnership with Jacobs will certainly prove that individuality pays off.
The campaign (see below) suits her unique style, in which she is wearing a pink scalloped edge, mermaid-like dress with a sort of futuristic pill-box black hat and polka dot tights.
So what do you think...is Helena is a good choice for the campaign?
