It has been eight long months since Lindsay Lohan starred in “Liz & Dick,” as of yet the world’s most glorious made-for-TV-movie about the tumultuous love affair between Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor. Note, I said “as of yet.” Not to be outdone by Lifetime, the BBC is airing its own Liz and Dick vehicle, “Burton… READ MORE »

We’d almost forgotten how gorgeous she is when she isn’t decked out all crazy… READ MORE »

Helena Bonham Carter kills it on the kooky front these days (it’s no coincidence that her initials alternatively stand for Head Bitch in Charge), but with her teased rat’s nest of hair and macabre goth-inspired wardrobe, it’s hard to believe that the prolific actress was once an adorably offbeat, doe-eyed British teenager in the ’80s.

This is what Helena Bonham Carter (Miss Carter if you’re nasty) wore to go shopping for a new pair of glasses in London the other day: a steampunk warrior princess outfit, candy bead necklace, and an oversized bow clipped into wild wavy hair.

High fashion films have a track record of being consistently gorgeous. I’m not talking about, say, “The Devil Wears Prada” (though I will never not argue that it’s one of the best movies ever), but rather the type of high-brow videos that result from collaborations between fashion houses and illustrious directors. Take, for instance, Martin… READ MORE »

We’ll be posting all about the Oscars tomorrow, but I couldn’t resist giving you a little tease.

We wish Helena Bonham Carter was on the set of a film when she put on this dress, but this is actually “normal,” everyday wear for her. We’re not sure which offends us more, the dress or the shoes and socks. [London, 7/6/09] … READ MORE »

Tim Burton is one of my favorite directors. I know “The Nightmare Before Christmas” by heart and left the theater with goosebumps after seeing his twisted remake of “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.” Not to mention that I admire his constantly casting Johnny Depp!
