Helena Bonham-Carter attended the premiere for a new adaptation of Dickens’s Great Expectations in London’s West End last night. Bonham-Carter plays Miss Havisham in the forthcoming film, and wore a custom Vivienne Westwood look that could be seen as a modern twist on the character’s classic aged wedding gown: black ombre bridal-style dress with a voluminous tiered skirt, and black heels.
