Dame Helen Mirren attended a press conference during the 16th Shanghai International Film Festival on Wednesday in Shanghai, China.
The British actress wore a coral-red Dolce & Gabbana belted frock, splashed with an exploded chrysanthemum print in cerulean-blue.
I was immediately attracted to this flush of colour on the red carpet. My delight was slightly tempered by the loose, semi-sheer cape worn over the dress, although one could argue that it did give the look a regal note.
Beige shoes weren’t near as exciting as the vividness of Helen’s ensemble and her poppy-red lip, whilst Dolce & Gabbana’s ‘Miss Sicily’ bag randomly hung out nearby.
