8 Reasons to Be Hot For a Teacher

Dressed to Ill at the Oscars

Helena Bonham Carter (A Room With a View, Fight Club) could be said to have debuted her "quirky" fashion sense at the 1987 Academy Awards, shown here. And by "quirky" I mean deliberately hideous. It takes work to make a beautiful woman look this bad. She either has no makeup on or has taken pains to evenly spread white chalk over her lips and skin. Her hair appears to have been home to a couple of pigeons who have since fled. And Bonham Carter anticipates, through this outfit, the wardrobe of Tim Burton's stop-gap animated Corpse Bride, a film she would perform voice-over in exactly a decade later. The real mystery is how she walked out of the house, much less into the spotlight of the Oscars, looking like this. Wowee zowee.
