No. Fricking. Way. WWD have posted photos of the latest Marc Jacobs' campaign photo-shoot and you are not going to bee-leeeeve who is starring in the Autumn/Winter '11 ads - only Helena Bonham Carter!

This is the first Grazia Daily has heard of the casting, and it's a fun surprise.

Helena wearing Marc Jacobs to the SAGs and in odd shoes at the Golden Globes

HBC's revival from fashion pariah to industry darling has been absolutely supersonic. In November last year she received the honour of a coveted place on Vanity Fair's Best Dressed list, although she claimed that when she first heard the news, she assumed it was a joke; 'But when I saw the article, I thought, "Oh, the photos they've chosen are as bad as the ones they print when I'm worst dressed".' She then went on to wear odd shoes at the Golden Globes in January.

We're not entirely sure how Helena knows Marc - especially as she seems to wear Vivienne Westwood's designs 99% of the time - although we assume that they met when he dressed her for the SAG Awards earlier this year and bonded over their mutual sense of crazy. Helena certainly looks cute in the photo (and check out that petite bod), and it's nice to see someone new scooping up a major campaign.

So, what do you think of Marc's choice for his latest "face"? Let us know, below...
