Dame Helen Mirren’s Timeless Style

Derick Chetty | July 26th, 2017

When it comes to dressing for red carpet events, Mirren, who recently turned 72 (July 26, 2017), always strikes a perfect note of elegance and sophistication with a touch of sexiness. Here, we look back at her evolving fashion sense.

Dame Helen Mirren has more than a dozen acting awards under her belt, but someone really needs to hand this brilliant British actress an award for fashion icon.

When it comes to dressing for red carpet events, Mirren always strikes a perfect note of elegance and sophistication with a touch of sexiness.

So what’s her signature style? Her gowns are often figure-hugging and she’s not opposed to a plunging neckline. However, she will find creative ways to hide her arms. As for colour, she goes for bold hues or dazzling white. As for a beauty look, she seems to have a penchant for a scarlet lip, which amps up her femme fatale air.

But for all the grown-up glamour, she is not afraid to let her hair down, so to speak. She once dyed her hair a dusty pink – just because she liked the colour.

But beyond beautiful frocks and glam makeup, Mirren has achieved something far greater with her sense of style. She has shown the rabidly youth-obsessed fashion and beauty industries that women her age, can still be beautiful, fashionably dressed and sexy.

Recently, L’Oreal Paris anointed her the face of their new Age Perfect Campaign.

But unlike some of her Hollywood peers fighting the aging process, this dame is taking it all in stride, reportedly saying, “I used to worry a lot more about my looks than I do now. I think the great advantage of getting older is that you let go of certain things.”

Here, we look back at her evolving fashion sense.
