We’re not ashamed to say that we squealed with excitement (and scared the postman in the process) when British Vogue’s July issue slid through our letter box yesterday afternoon – and that’s largely because we couldn’t be happier with the fashion Bible’s decision to put our girl crush Helena Bonham Carter on the front. Well played Vogue!

The July issue may be all about ageless style, but Helena’s style is about so much more than that: it’s personal, fun, out there, and we’re willing to bet good money that she just doesn’t give a damn. And that’s part of her appeal!

‘I wear hats I’ve bought for the children,” she admitted to the mag. “Once The Daly Mail called me the Bulgarian Elf – now Tim calls me that all the time.”

Aww, Helena! And speaking of headpieces, HBC is modelling quite a few of them in the editorial images from the likes of Tour de Force, Benoit Missolin and Ralph Lauren Collection. A truly stunning editorial – we can’t wait to sit down with a glass of wine cup of tea and read her interview too. The July issue of British Vogue is out on July 3rd.
