Two actresses, two very different campaigns. Eternal pixie and best-dressed candidate Helena Bonham Carter stars in Marc Jacobs Fall 2011 campaign, shot, per usual, by Juergen Teller. Meanwhile, Oscar winner and non-model Kate Winslet‘s Craig McDean-lensed ads for St. John have finally made an appearance.
Both Winslet and Bonham Carter are known for their red carpet style; whereas Kate skews more to the classic ideal of Hollywood glamour, Helena likes to pile on the crazy. And while St. John is trying to appeal to a younger customer, Marc continues to give less than two shits what anyone thinks.
Hence, Kate Winslet for St. John — classy, demure, grey jersey dress, acting — and Helena Bonham Carter for Marc Jacobs — legs splayed at an awkward angle, pink sequins and scallops, quirk. Matches made in fashion heaven.
