Dame Helen Mirren, 76, has taken to the runway at the bi-annual Paris Fashion Week show on October 3, 2021.

Walking the Le Defile L’Oréal Paris 2021 catwalk, Mirren wowed with a dramatic, monochromatic look, all for a great cause – women’s empowerment.

Mirren’s powerful all-black-everything look, featured a black suit cinched at the waist with a large crystal button, and embellished with a diamanté patterning.

With her silver hair piled up to a worn-in bun atop her head and a simple black ribbon headband, Mirren’s makeup took centre stage. Bold black eyeliner, swiped under her eyes, Mirren’s style was simple, but packed a punch.

She wore edgy earrings – diamanté bars, with a black stainless circle – and her feet were adorned with chunky-platform, black, cage heels, and black toenail polish. All makeup and nail products used to create Mirren’s look were taken from the L’Oréal Spring Summer 2022 collection.
