Style Icon: Dame Helen Mirren – Ageless And Always Chic Both On And Off The Red Carpet

She’s elegant, is flying the fashion flag for the over 50s and can still rock a red bikini! Here we take a look at the Hitchcock star’s signature style


It’s not often a 67-yer-old veteran can give younger rivals on the red carpet a run for their money but if anyone can do it, Helen Mirren can.

Helen always looks like she’s having fun and it’s probably because she’s so comfortable in her style choices. From curve hugging dresses to her show-stopping statement accessories, the Hollywood legend follows the same winning fashion formula time after time and always knocks it out of the park.

But she’s far from conventional! The Hitchcock actress isn’t afraid of colour, knows what suits her fabulous figure and oozes poise and confidence in spades. And, unlike many of her comtempories, the natural beauty is only getting better with age and doesn’t have a Hollywood surgeon to thank for it.

From her native American Indian symbol tattoo meaning ‘equal but opposite’ to her penchant for towering platform heels, Helen always shuns the sensible option and we love her for it.

Ultimately, the Londoner is sexy without ever looking like she’s trying too hard and we only hope that we can look half as good as her when we reach our late 60s.
