Helena Bonham Carter’s Dark Shadows Premiere Dress: How Many Dresses Is She Actually Wearing?

Though she probably won’t be winning “Best Dressed” for her red carpet style anytime soon, we love Helena Bonham Carter’s wacky fashion choices.

HBC — who also happens to be the partner of equally eccentric director Tim Burton — attended the London premiere of Burton’s latest film, Dark Shadows, wearing what appears to be multiple dresses combined into one flowing garment.

The “dress” was made up of various striped fabrics and black tulle, and was described as “gothic glam” by British fashion publication Grazia.

Yet, we’ve gotta give Helena points for creativity. The Vivienne Westwood Gold Label frock looks like one of Tim Burton’s excellently nightmarish creations, so one could argue that it was a fitting outfit for the occasion.

We could definitely see Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas sporting this patchwork ensemble, and we love that Helena is bold enough to rock it!

What do you think of HBC’s purple carpet attire? Vote below!
