Wow! Helen Mirren looked absolutely gorgeous when she stepped out at the Ischia Global Festival in Italy.

Her understated style was really on show as she glowed in a black dress and red lipstick.

The classic look was matched with some black strappy heels, and she was snapped sidling up to her husband, Taylor Hackford.

Helen was there for the festival’s gala dinner at the Ranchio Fellone restaurant, along with Antonio Banderas. The pair were ecstatic to see one another and were spotted laughing with their respective partners.

Antonio meanwhile was accompanied by his 34-year-old girlfriend, Nicole Kempel, and looked casual in a polo shirt.

According to, the festival on Ischia is a sister event to the Capri Hollywood festival in Los Angeles, and both festivals have been set-up to bring Hollywood and the European film industries closer together, whilst providing an informal and relaxed setting where actors and directors can network. Ah, the life!
