Helen Mirren In Bruce Oldfield – Evening Standard Theatre Awards 2013

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.

Helen Mirren In Jenny Packham – ‘RED 2′ London Premiere

Helen Mirren In Jenny Packham - 'RED 2' London Premiere

Dame Helen Mirren graced the red carpet this evening at the Empire Leicester Square for the London premiere of ‘RED 2?.

Possibly inspired by the movie’s title, the British actress wore a red knee-length crystal-embellished dress from Jenny Packham’s Fall 2013 collection, which she styled with a cream fold-over clutch, nude pumps and a much-needed fan.

She added diamond-and-ruby jewels fit for a royal, with a complementary lip colour providing the finishing touches.

Resplendent as always.

Helen Mirren In Tory Burch – ‘RED 2′ New York Screening

Helen Mirren In Tory Burch - 'RED 2' New York Screening

Dame Helen Mirren has so far looked as regal as ever on the promo circuit for ‘RED 2,’ and she continued her elegant outings at the movie’s New York City screening yesterday at the Museum of Modern Art.

The actress graced the red carpet in a Tory Burch Pre-Fall 2013 off-white dress, spangled with embellishment that mimicked a micro-print, which she paired with the designer’s snakeskin pumps.

A sparkling, gold Herve Van der Straeten bracelet and CB Luxe ring, not to mention that magenta-red lip, punched up her conservatively chic look.

But it was the casual, too-white Kate Spade New York cardigan that ultimately deflated the effect for me.

Given the choice, I prefer her prior two ‘RED 2′ looks from Elie Saab and Jenny Packham.

I can’t say this enough, but when I grow up I want to be just like Helen Mirren.

The British actress looked better than ever making a guest appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night to promote her latest movie, ‘RED 2′, following the premiere earlier in the evening.

She was radiant wearing a royal-blue Jenny Packham Pre-Fall 2013 three-quarter-sleeved dress with an embellished neckline and gathered waist.

Adding yet more bedazzlement her blue-stone Dovon Paloma jewels further enhanced her look, with nude Cole Haan pumps providing the finishing touches.

She really is in a league all of her own.

Helen Mirren took to the Westwood Village red carpet for the ‘RED 2′ premiere in LA yesterday evening.

She was a picture of elegance wearing a green Elie Saab Pre-Fall 2013 long-sleeved jersey gown with a keyhole detail and criss-cross waist.

Maintaining the mood she added David Webb coral-and-diamond jewels as well as a gold Elie Saab clutch.

The styling enhances what is a fairly simple, bling-free Elie Saab frock.
