A (Mis-)Match made in Heaven

One of my favorite add campaigns this fall definitely has to be Helena Bonham Carter shot by Jurgen Teller for Marc Jacobs. Could he have chosen a better muse? In Jacobs' sleek, buttoned-up styles, Helena's off-kilter eccentricity seems to echo that special variant bred in upper-class environments where titles and names have great significance. Her grimacing as well as the dotted gloves and little hats all add the important finishing touches of kook. She's like a long-lost sister of the Mad Hatter. Only more wealthy. And coupled with Teller's raw, overexposed style, the weirdness gains that unfiltered quality that makes her character seem almost believable, almost real. Great inspiration!
