Prepare to be captivated by a vision of hot pink radiance as Dame Helen Mirren graces the red carpet once again in a show-stopping frock that left onlookers spellbound.

The iconic Queen actress made a captivating entrance at the Ora! Film Festival in Italy, on Sunday, June 4, wearing a mesmerising Barbie-esque hot pink maxi dress– a look which seemly pays homage to her upcoming appearance in the new Barbie film.

The 77-year-old’s ensemble featured a cinched waist, long flared sleeves, and a shimmering array of pink, white, and silver sequins.

Mirren paired her dress with comfortable, and stylish, open-toed silver sandals, silver hoop earrings, and a hot pink headband. She wore her silver hair down and finished off her look with a subtle touch of pink lipstick.

Not one to shy away from colour, the all-pink glam look is the second colourful monochromatic outfit that the actress has donned recently.

In May, she graced the Cannes Film Festival red carpet looking like the Goddess of the sea in head-to-toe blue.

While Mirren looked stunning in her custom Del Core gown, it was her periwinkle and ocean-blue hair that stole the show.

The esteemed actress often uses fashion and style as a way to fight ageist beauty standards. Earlier this year, Mirren revealed she had no intention of chopping her long hair despite it being a “radical” style for women over 60.

“You’re not supposed to have longer hair after a certain age,” Mirren said.

“But during Covid, I started growing my hair and I hadn’t actually had long hair since I was in my 20s. And it sort of grew and grew and grew, and I couldn’t be bothered to cut it, basically.

“I thought, do you know what, it’s pretty cool, I think I’ll stick with it for a little while. It will come off eventually.

“But I’m kind of enjoying it, it’s quite radical.”

The Hundred-Foot Journey star said she wants to show women over 60 that they don’t have to conform to the stereotypes society wants to keep them in.

“Life doesn’t stop. And creativity doesn’t stop and passion doesn’t stop and energy doesn’t stop, unless you decide to stop it,” she said.

“So, it’s just be self-motivated, really, and never give up. And find enjoyment, if it’s possible in your life.”
