Helena Bonham Carter for Marc Jacobs.Helena Bonham Carter Lands Major Modeling Gig for Marc Jacobs.

The fashion world has a thing for Helena Bonham Carter.

The British actress' fiercely unique approach to red carpet fashion has landed her on many a worst dressed list, but that hasn't stopped her from becoming something of a muse to designer Marc Jacobs. Helena stars in the Marc Jacobs autumn/winter 2011 ad campaign (shot, as always, by Juergen Teller), wildly grinning in a pink paillette-encrusted dress with her hair splayed out above her head in the first leaked image.

As many a blog has pointed out, Jacobs frequently employs surprising celebrities to front his ad campaigns, including Dakota Fanning, Victoria Beckham and M.I.A. He once explained that he has a fondness for imperfection: “There are certain girls who make mistakes, and I just love that. I love the strength to move forward. It’s very hard to be someone publicly and then to be human and honest at the same time."
