All the news about the Oscars

With her voluminous, asymmetric gowns and 'bedhead' hair,  Helena Bonham Carter’s name has become synonymous with quirky fashion.

And, after her appearance in different coloured shoes at last month’s Golden Globe Awards (pictured), celebrity watchers are waiting in anticpation to see what the actress pulls out of the bag for the Oscars.

Asked about her plans for the prestigious ceremony, the 44-year-old replied: “I have no idea, really. It’s going to probably be a catastrophe.” 

It wouldn't come as a surprise if Helena, who is married to cult film director Tim Burton, takes advice from her mother Elena (pictured) who shares her love of eccentric attire.

Whatever she picks out, it's certain the style rebel will have fun. She recently told Vogue: "Sometimes I get it right and sometimes I get it wrong.”

“But fashion is all about having fun. I think fashion has been hijacked by the fashion industry creating rules on what one should wear and I feel like breaking the mold and seeing that the world won't crumble."
