Wow – Helen Mirren is just stunning in this sheer ballgown

Helen Mirren has worn some pretty impressive outfits over the years, but this could well be the best.

The 70-year-old style icon lit up the red carpet on the opening night of the Tokyo Film Festival last night, wearing a floor-length white gown with a train that made her look like something from a fairytale.

Helen has always been a fan of sheer fabrics, appearing many times in recent years in lace in red, white and black.

This dress makes the most of her lovely figure (she recently described her best assets as her “pleasure pillows!), and we’re loving the elaborately embroidered overlay, which adds a classy element to her strapless gown.
