Fashion Quotes: Helena Bonham Carter Discusses Breaking Fashion's RulesThe King’s Speech actress Helena Bonham Carter is here to remind us of the most important rule of fashion: there are no rules. Bonham Carter is well known for her adventurous sense of personal style and is the first to admit she doesn’t play by the rules. As she explains to People, “Sometimes I get it right and sometimes I get it wrong. But fashion is all about having fun. I think fashion has been hijacked by the fashion industry creating rules on what one should wear and I feel like breaking the mold and seeing that the world won’t crumble.”

In fact, it was only last week that Bonham Carter raised eyebrows by attending the Golden Globe Awards wearing one red and one green shoe. Why? “Why not wear mismatching shoes? Who says we can’t? I was just having fun,” she says. “For me, fashion is all about fantasy and putting unlikely things together. That’s what I love. I genuinely love dressing up.”

It comes as no surprise, then, that Bonham Carter counts Lady Gaga as a favorite: “I love the way she dresses. She’s like a work of art. Anybody who is inventive, different or has fun like her, I love and admire. I’m amazed that she’s able to stand up in some of those shoes she wears.”
