Helena Bonham Carter: 8 Red Carpet Moments That Made Us Scratch Our Heads

Today's the 45th birthday of Helena Bonham Carter, Hollywood's answer to Jekyll and Hyde. Bonham Carter, who was nominated this year for a best actress Oscar for The King's Speech, often plays the straight-laced period roles that earned her the nickname "corset queen" early in her career. The red carpet does something devilish, though, and her A-list event fashions rival those of Bjork's in terms of head-turning and head-scratching (yes, we are still talking about that swan dress). Insert joke here about her being called "corset queen" for a whole other reason.

Whether you love her look or think "goth tutu queen" would be a more appropriate moniker, here are some of our favorite HBC fashion moments.
