Helena Bonham Carter, or HBC as we adoringly call her, may be a regular on fashion's worst dressed lists—but that doesn't stop us from hanging on her every look. The King's Speech and Alice in Wonderland star earned ire and kudos alike for her choice of mismatched shoes at this year's Golden Globes. Helena was nominated for Best Supporting Actress at the 2011 Academy Awards.

The 83rd Annual Academy Awards were held February 27, 2011 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. James Franco and Anne Hathaway hosted the festivities, which honored the best films of 2010. Hathaway, who employed her stylist gal pal Rachel Zoe to dress her for the event, looked fabulous as always. And as well she should: Zoe's fee was reportedly astronomical!
