Vogue UK have dedicated their July 2013 issue to Ageless style, which as stated by them “celebrates women who possess a distinctive style that transcends age.”

Helena Bonham Carter is on the cover, and in my eyes this woman can really do no wrong, not only is she simply gorgeous, she encapsulates everything that “ageless style” means to me. She wears a Ralph Lauren dress and an Agent Provacteur corset while her hair is untypically sleeked back and decorated with a feather head piece. How beautiful, albeit, slightly over retouched does she look?

Helena has always drawn attention, not only to her roles but her quirky styles. Everything about her is extravagant with the tousled locks to tattered, corseted, and draped dresses to eye-catchy accessories. Regardless of being a regular on various worst-dressed lists she always stay true to her style and even got a fashion gig in 2011 with Marc Jacobs.

The photo shoot was shot by the famous fashion duo Mert & Marcus, and is mostly in black and white showing Helena in corsets and dramatic hats. The styling is quite reflective of Helena’s style and is yet very refined. In the interview she speaks of learning from her various roles about being a mother, actress and a wife to husband, Tim Burton.

“The research is what I get off on. My mom is a psychologist and I’m very similar to her. I love the challenge of working a character out. Ultimately, I don’t agree to do a film because I think it’s going to be a success. I do it because I think I’m going to learn something from the character I’m playing. I’m not sure what yet, but I know I’m going to learn something from Elizabeth [Taylor]. I know that, somehow, I’m going to grow as a soul from playing her.”
