Helena Bonham Carter - Helena Bonham Carter's Individual Dress Sense

Helena Bonham Carter dresses for herself.

The 'King's Speech' actress is famed for her eccentric fashion sense but says she doesn't worry what people think as she hates dressing the same as everybody else.

She said: "I've always been happy to wear things I like and not follow what's in fashion. I just thought I never look good in what everybody else wore. So there's no point trying. You just have to do what suits you, and it doesn't matter if you don't look like everybody else. Be you. That's our gift and we've got to celebrate that, but it does take ages. I was wracked with self-doubt for years. I get spasms of it even now - I'm not indelibly self-confident."

Helena also revealed how she never wants to get too skinny because she thinks it will age her.

The 44-year-old star told Stylist magazine: "I love food. Elizabeth Taylor once said you have to choose between the body and the face at some point and I think she was right. I did diet when I was younger but now I just eat. I don't overeat though. I'm rounder but I think it does help the face."
