Helen Mirren shows off her fun, youthful side in these stunning new photos

Dame Helen Mirren has had an amazing week as a role model for over-60s fashion. Now she’s proving beyond a shadow of a doubt: she’s the perfect inspiration for the young at heart.

She looked stunning several days ago at the Ischia Global Festival in her elegant, understated black gown.

A few days later, she proved once and for all that 69 is not too old to wear a swimsuit.

But as we all know, Mirren is a woman of many looks and styles. Yesterday she rounded out her week at the festival with this stunning multicoloured satin dress, adorned with charming hand-drawn children’s artwork of fish, houses, flowers and rainbows.

We’ve always adored Mirren’s playful side, but this may be our favourite wardrobe pick of hers yet!
