Quirky Bit O' Fashion



There are plenty of celebrities rocking a quirky style. Rihanna's kooky red hair. Johnny Depps' blue glasses and fedora. Lady Gaga's meat dress. But my favorite is Helena Bonham Carter. She always looks like she just escaped from a wind tunnel. When asked recently about her innovative style of dressing, she responded "For me, fashion is all about fantasy and putting unlikely things together. That's what I love." Her outfit at the 2011 Golden Globes is typical. It's a Vivienne Westwood dress and mismatched shoes. Red and green...maybe it's for Christmas!


This ensemble is wicked witch meets housefrau meets old Jewish guy (socks and cardigan). Love it!



This is just...um....black shoes with hunks of satin and a chenille snake? I'm not sure. Oh yeah, and some rags in her hair. 

Well, I'm not sure if Helena won a Golden Globe. But I'm nominating her for Quirkiest Celebrity Dresser of the week. Congrats!


Happy Friday,
Penny

She has the weirdest fashion sense ever, even more weird than Cher's! Actually I prefer her very strange outfits to Cher's overtly revealing stuff.
You have to admit, the woman does walk her own road!

Isn't she married to Tim Burton? I can't begin to imagine their house on Halloween!

I'm loving it. My guess is the idea is to make every day Halloween, so I bet there wouldn't be much difference on the day itself.

Julia....Holy Cripes, I gotta do a post on Cher! Thanks for the great idea. Her middle name is Quirky. I actually love HBC...especially her hair. It's frightening close to my own hair style.

Penelope said...

Hey DD! Yes, she is. He's a snazzy dresser, too. I don't think they celebrate Halloween in England, do they? Not sure.

Penelope said...

Hi Michelle! There you go. Just like Stephen King's funky house in Maine.

Brenda Hyde said...

I think I like her fashion in an odd, "if only I could get away with that" way. LOL Her hair always looks like she just got out of bed. Much like mine. *snort*

Dalton Diaz said...

Good call, Penelope. Didn't realize they made their home there, but that makes sense!

Penelope said...

Hi Brenda. I have that hair, too. It comes in 3 sizes...big, bigger and XXL!
