Helen Mirren In Bruce Oldfield - Evening Standard Theatre Awards 2013

Dame Helen Mirren took home the best actress award for her performance in ‘The Audience’ at the 59th Evening Standard Theatre Awards, held in London yesterday evening.

Restoring the tone of elegance at this event after, well, you know, the 68-year-old actress looked breathtaking wearing a Bruce Oldfield creation which consisted of a black fitted dress with a flowing train styled with a pink satin bow accented bolero.

Bows can at times be tricky to pull off, but this one helped elevate this look into BDOTW status.

A stunning pair of pink-diamond David Morris earrings and a black clutch completed her breathtaking look.

    J’adore, absolute perfection – the elegant sleek silhouette, the bow-accented bolero enhancing the look while gracefully providing some age-appropriate coverage, impeccable styling – without a doubt, BDOTW worthy.

    All I’m seeing is koala eyes, frankly. She looks elegant though, although the look still can’t convince me of bows.

    • KatieKate November 18, 2013 at 18:55 #

      I noticed that too, unfortunately. However, she still looks super sophisticated and beautiful. Great choice for her.

    • Dani November 19, 2013 at 01:48 #

      Yes – if only the makeup was better!!

    She looks beautiful- the dress fits her body so well and though I should hate the little bolero with the bow – somehow it looks perfect here and elevates a simple black gwon. I love this hairstyle on her.

    • Yeliz November 19, 2013 at 00:13 #

      Agree totally with you. I also think that this is BDOTW worthy.

  7. Sophy November 18, 2013 at 16:33 #

    Def BDOTW worthy!

  8. Rebecca Z November 18, 2013 at 16:47 #

    Totally BDOTW. And what a perfect haircut!

  9. Cristina November 18, 2013 at 19:50 #

    She can do no wrong. Stunning.

  10. Sharon November 18, 2013 at 20:03 #

    Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! Even though it’s just Monday, she’s definitely my BDOTW. Lovely lady.

  11. Valissa November 18, 2013 at 21:09 #

    This woman is pure class! How stunning does she look? Love the dress, hair and makeup. Brilliant, Helen :)

    • Sleepless in Chicago November 20, 2013 at 13:08 #

      Agreed. The dress itself may not be perfect but it is perfect on Helen and she wears it and presents herself perfectly. She is such a role model. I wish Jennifer Lawrence took some pointers. Maybe it is just the level of sophistication that is obtained with experience.

  12. Parvati November 18, 2013 at 23:13 #

    She looks fantastic! Elegant, sophisticated… She’s definitely a BDOTW-contender for me!

  13. NG November 19, 2013 at 12:35 #

    I love everything about this look. Her hairstyle and dress complete each other and create a harmonious and elegant look. Absolutely breathtaking!

  14. Daisy November 19, 2013 at 13:19 #

    Oh wow!!

  15. Jess2 November 19, 2013 at 13:40 #

    This look is perfect up to the makeup around the eyes – it’s really throwing me.
