Helen Mirren has never been one to shy away from a little glamour, and the 72-year-old actress has proved once again she’s got the chops to pull of any look on the red carpet.
Mirren looked every bit the timeless beauty as she walked the red carpet with the world’s biggest film stars at the Cannes Film Festival at the weekend, and left fans oohing and ahhing over her ethereal deep-blue gown.
The stunning dress featured panels of blue velvet delicately draped over layers of sheer, blue fabric. Rather than opting for simple sleeves, the gown turned up the drama with flowing, Medieval-like sleeves that fell behind the star as she walked.
Each section of the dress was finished with a simple gold trim, which Mirren matched with gold accessories.
She kept things more simple in the makeup department, choosing a simple pink lip and silver eyeshadow.
Mirren was attending the screening of Girls Of The Sun (Les Filles Du Soleil), a Kurdistan-set drama about an all-female battalion preparing to liberate their hometown from the hands of extremists.
The glamorous red carpet event wasn’t the only party Mirren attended on Saturday. She was also pictured filming at Martinez beach – a stunning strip of beach in the south of France.
Ditching the elegant style of her earlier red carpet appearance, Mirren opted for something a little more wild and was pictured sporting a vibrant purple jacket over a white jumpsuit.
She took things up a notch with zebra-striped flats and silver drop-earrings.
Though she undoubtedly looks good for her age, Mirren has admitted in the past that she does have a bit of cosmetic help to keep her looking young(ish). The actress recently had her eyebrows tattooed and now swears by the procedure.
“I was fed up of my brows barely being there, and when one of my girlfriends got it done, I thought they looked great”, she told Women & Home magazine in the UK. “They’re very lightly and delicately done, but it means that when I get up in the morning and I have no make-up on, at least I have eyebrows! It’s made a huge difference.”
