Helena Bonham Carter showcases her quirky sense of style in a cropped black blazer and a midi skirt as she runs errands

Helena Bonham Carter showed off her unique sense of style as she ran errands in north London on Thursday.

The screen star added a white ruffled blouse to the ensemble and a co-ordinated black cropped blazer which was edged in white.

Helena kept comfy in a pair of maroon trainers and carried her belongings in a chic black crossbody bag. 

She swept her long tresses up in a messy bun on top of her head while hiding behind a pair of large black sunglasses.    

Helena, who is dating Rye Dag Holmboe, an art historian 22 years her junior, is often mentioned for her quirky style – but she insists it doesn’t dent her confidence.

‘I’ve never been interested in what other people think. I have been vilified for my dress sense, and I find it hilarious,’ she said.

Helena’s latest acting project is Enola Holmes 2, where she plays Eudoria, the mother of the titular character [Millie Bobby Brown].

Millie took to Instagram last month to share first looks snaps at the upcoming sequel. 

Millie’s character, the younger sister of Sherlock Homes, played by Henry Cavill, could be seen running from the police before being handcuffed and carted off to jail. 

Helena has also been busy filming scenes for her role in an upcoming ITV drama series in Venice and Manchester.

The three part drama, Nolly, penned by Russell T Davies, will explore the all-powerful reign and fall from grace of the inimitable Noele Gordon, who died in 1985.

She was declared the ‘Queen of the Midlands’ thanks to iconic role as Meg Mortimer in Crossroads and was the darling of the establishment until it turned on her. 

As flame-haired widow Meg in the long-running soap opera Crossroads, Noele became one of the most famous people in Britain.

Then in 1981, at the height of the show’s success and the peak of her fame, she was axed without ceremony, without warning and with no explanation, with the soap eventually ending two years later.

After she was dropped from the show, Noele’s ill health prevented her from accepting many more roles, and she died in 1985 at the age of 66.
