Helena Bonham Carter Covers Harper’s Bazaar UK June 2016

The soon to be 50-year-old talented actress; Helena Bonham Carter is on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar UK June 2016 issue and she is looking surprisingly good on it. This is the best look I have ever seen of Helena and I am loving it. I love the outfit and the pose with the cute white Rabbit. The background is also spectacular, it captures everything Helena Bonham Carter represents.

The interesting looking cover lady wears Alberta Ferretti dress, Dents gloves, Alexander McQueen hairpins, Gillian Horsup earrings and Fleur du Mal bunny ears. This picture was photographed by Tom Craig for Harper’s Bazaar.

In this issue, Helena discusses love, loss and living next-door to the ex, she just broke up with her long time partner – Tim Burton.

Here, Helena Bonham Carter wears Giles Deacon Couture dress. Marco di Vincenzo boots, De Grisogono ring, Gillian Horsup earrings and Butler & Wilson metal brooch (worn in hair). This picture was also photographed by Tom Craig for Harper’s Bazaar.

Although, I still think Helena is a Fashion Criminal, I mean she wore different colours of shoes to the 2011 Golden Globes for crying out loud, BUT she slayed this photo shoot. She looks nothing like her age, and she has never been under the knife before. I would love to look like her when I grow up!

Here, Helena wears Stella McCartney dress, Burberry Prorsum coat, Piers Atkinson cat mask and Gillian Horsup earrings. Her outfit is styled by Miranda Almond and photographed by Tom Craig for Harper’s Bazaar. I can feel her love for animals in this issue, and it is quite contagious. That Cat is the highlight of this subscriber’s Cover, in my opinion.

I love this magazine cover but I don’t think I will be buying it if I am being 100% honest. I have no interest in Helena, apart from her beauty secrets, and I don’t see them tallking about such a vain subject, lol.

What are your thoughts? Will you be buying?

The T-shirt: A Symbol of Democratic Fashion & Style

The T-shirt: A Symbol of Democratic Fashion & Style

How many t-shirts do you have in your closet at the moment? I have lost count of the pairs I have. Research shows an average individual owns 2 t-shirts at every point in time. The t-shirt is currently the favourite fashion stable for many men, women and children. Everyone loves a good t-shirt, and I can see why. It is so easy to dress up with a fitted blazer, skinny jeans, and some cool heels, or dress down a pair of jeggings, sneakers and a denim shirt, and most t-shirts are affordable. Personally, I try not to spend more than £20 on one, but I tend to go for the pieces closer to the £20 price tag as they seem to wash better and last longer. Whenever I can’t think of what to wear, I throw on a t-shirt, weather permitting of course.

The origin of the t-shirt is associated with the uniform of the British and American Navy. It was also originally meant to be worn as an underwear, but now, we all wear it as an outerwear as well. Today, the t-shirt is known as a symbol of democratic fashion and style, a way people have chosen to express themselves through fashion, and fashion brands are cashing in on it big time.

I like my t-shirt to come in various designs and styles, so I have a variety in my wardrobe. Here are 3 of my favourites at the moment:

 

Jamaica One Love T-shirt

Fashion Blogging Picture

This t-shirt was a souvenir a family member got for me, while holidaying in Jamaican. I love the bright print on white. So beautiful. I will be wearing a lot of this beauty in the summer months.

 

Paris Souvenir T-shirt

I got this pretty pink, Paris t-shirt while holidaying in Paris last year. I feel so girly whenever I have this piece on. My daughter and niece have the same t-shirt and we all look like Power Puffgirls when we wear it, lol.

 

Zara ‘Just Smile Girl’ T-shirt

DSCF2198

This Zara t-shirt is a wardrobe essential. It is great to wear to underneath a black or blue blazer, or with a denim jacket when out and about. The necklace attached to the piece is just adds to the beauty.

What do you think of these pieces? And back to my first question, how many t-shirts do you have in your closet at the moment?

Drop me a comment.

Thanks for reading.
