Hot mess or just avant-garde?

At Sunday's Golden Globes, Helena Bonham Carter looked every bit the Gothic, quirky characters she's played in films like Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and flicks from her beau Tim Burton.

The British actress, 44, wore a multi-hued, multi-layered gown by fave designer Vivienne Westwood -- and two different-colored shoes!

With her curly hair piled high, Carter wore a pink shoe on her left foot, and a green one on her right.

The acclaimed actress plays Queen Elizabeth (the current Queen Elizabeth's mother, a.k.a. the Queen Mum), wife to stuttering King George Vi in the nominated flick The King's Speech.
