She appeared in mismatched shoes at January's Golden Globe Awards.

And her bedhead hair and penchant for Victoriana buck the prevailing Hollywood trend for an über-coiffed, sleek look.


So just what will red carpet maverick Helena Bonham Carter be wearing at Sunday's Oscars?

When asked about her sartorial plans for the prestigious ceremony a few weeks ago, the striking 44-year-old said she had no idea what to wear, but it would "probably be a catastrophe"." readers are bound to disagree. They crowned The King's Speech actress' the best dressed at the recent Baftas (pictured).

With her trademark cascading hair, the star looked stunning in an elegant black Vivienne Westwood number - beating the likes of fashionista Emma Watson and Hollywood beauty Jessica Alba to the top spot for favourite Bafta gown.
