Apparently she was worried about navigating at the after-show parties and had to remind herself where port and starboard are...

Proper sailor there. Good show.

I don't think they meet USCG regs!

Must be visible for two miles now. The old one mile rule might be ok for those.

Her dress was truly fugly. Her shoes were simply in for a penny, in for a pound. :-)

BTW, saw her movie The King's Speech yesterday, superb. She, Rush, and Firth were uniformly excellent.

I think she should get an Oscar nod for being The Red Queen in Alice though- gloriously over the top in a Bette Davis way.

Helena Bonham-Carter has been on the receiving end of more "worst dressed actress/celebrity/whatever" awards than anyone else, ever; this started when she knew no better and for many years now she has done it on purpose...


with "the father of the bastards"...

it's a style called "I'm an intellectual, dammit!"

I expect she's trying for anonymity (kain't blame her at all)

I posted that on FB. Should have done the same here. I think it's kinda funny.

I remember when my daughter was about 4 or 5 and used to wear two diff. socks, matched to the colors of the outfit of course, but different nontheless.
