Queen of bizarre outfits Helena Bonham Carter is British Vogue’s July cover girl, looking awesome as usual. Shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, she’s ivory-skinned and red-lipped, her cheekbones contoured into sharp planes. It’s great to see her looking so glamorous without sacrificing any of the weirdness that makes her so much fun to look at on red carpets. In other news, the accompanying story includes an anecdote about the eight life-size dinosaurs she keeps in her back yard. Why they didn’t make it into the spread is anyone’s guess, but that’s a missed opportunity if there ever was one.
