London: Actress Helena Bonham Carter has been named as the latest face of U.S label, Marc Jacobs.

The ‘King``s Speech’ star posed for the campaign wearing a futuristic nude dress and polka-dot tights.

“It was a triumph! It made me laugh because I thought it was a joke when I found out,” the Daily Mail quoted the actress as telling the New York Daily News.

“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 said.
