OSCAR nominee Helena Bonham Carter, decked out in a Victorian period costume, poses for the photographer Annie Leibovitz at the Freud Museum in Hampstead, north London.

The 31-year-old actress who has starred in 17 films, including Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, has won an Oscar nomination for her latest film role, as Kate Croy in Iain Softley's adaptation of Henry James's novel The Wings of the Dove.

Leibovitz catches the quintessential Englishness of Ms Bonham Carter in this photograph - The Victorian - which appears with a host of others taken by the celebrity photographer and featuring in April's "Hollywood 1998" edition of the magazine Vanity Fair.
