Helena Bonham Carter Predicts 'Catastrophe' for Her Oscars Look

Helena Bonham Carter on Her Golden Globes Dress and ShoesZuma

Helena Bonham Carter may have had her share of red carpet controversies, but you have to hand it to the Oscar-nominated actress for always having fun with fashion. After stepping out at last month’s Golden Globes in mismatched shoes, can we expect a similarly eclectic look for the Academy Awards? At this point, it’s anybody’s guess –- including her own! “I have no idea, really. It’s going to probably be a catastrophe,” the King’s Speech star told PEOPLE at the Academy Award Nominees Luncheon in L.A. earlier this week. “It’s right up to the last minute that it can go wrong at any time. I can be going for something quite [classy] and suddenly at the last minute go off piece. So we’ll see. It’s a mystery to me, actually.” For someone who enjoys fantasy and “putting unlikely things together,” we’re quite confident that whatever Bonham Carter ends up wearing will create some serious fashion buzz. One thing the English actress can predict for Hollywood’s glitziest night of the year? “I promise you, I’ll wear the same color shoes.” – Hana Choi ; reporting by Michelle Ward

NOT a catastrophy or failure! She’s just carefree, cool, fun, and down-to-earth. Who is calling the shots anyway??

Love her, she is unique & a refreshing change from the other fashionistas. I can imagine her discussing “how outrageous will I go on this red carpet”. Can’t wait to see!

she’s awesome, love her, an amazing actress, she can do no wrong when it comes to fashion.

i think alot of the so called best dressed on the red carpet are often worst dressed in my opinion. who are these so called experts. at least this lady wears colour, i don’t care who you are, there is nothing great about a flesh tone, beige anything when it comes to red carpet gowns.

“…I can be going for something quite [classy] and suddenly at the last minute go OFF PIECE.”

The phrase is “… off piste”. It means to do something unexpected and strange; fencing or skiing terminology.

I know this isn’t exactly ‘journalism’ Ms. Liebling-Goldberg, but a little pride in what you do… please.
