When I grow up I wanna be just like Helen Mirren because she’s one of the most elegant women to grace the red carpet.

We all expected Dita von Teese or Olga Kurylenko to be one of the first to wear a look from Elie Saab’s Fall 2010 collection, but Helen beat them to it.

The grand Dame opted for a black jersey asymmetrical one-sleeved gown with embroidered strap.

I love everything about this look from the new bangs, to the draped shoulder, to the rouge lips and the clutch, but I really don’t like those diamond Chopard cuffs.

I understand that she may have wanted something to help dazzle the look, but she would’ve been a perfect 10 without them.
