Helen Mirren In Dolce & Gabbana – 16th Shanghai International Film Festival

Helen Mirren In Dolce & Gabbana - 16th Shanghai International Film Festival

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.

Helen Mirren In Dolce & Gabbana (Again) – Prince’s Trust Celebrate Success Awards

Helen Mirren In Dolce & Gabbana (Again) - Prince's Trust Celebrate Success Awards

Dame Helen Mirren was back on the red carpet again this afternoon in London for the Prince’s Trust Celebrate Success Awards held at the Odeon Leicester Square.

I know what you are thinking.

This is the same Dolce & Gabbana floral-print dress she’s worn once before.

Well you’d be wrong, because Helen has worn this dress twice before.

I have plenty of dresses in my closet which I wear multiple times so I don’t blame Helen for falling so hard for this dress, but she wore it just two days ago to the Jameson Empire Awards.

Is her washer on the blink? Are Dolce & Gabbana out of dresses because they loaned them all to Kylie Minogue, or does she just simply love the dress?

My bets are on the second and third options.

I will give Helen credit for styling the dress differently to the first two run outs, but lets hope this occasion also serves at the retirement party for this dress.

Jameson Empire Awards 2013 Red Carpet Round Up

Empire Awards Women

Here is a look at the rest of the ladies who took to the red carpet at Grosvenor House in London yesterday evening for the Jameson Empire Awards 2013.

Ellie Goulding: The singer wore a simple black L’Agence halter dress with two-tone Nicholas Kirkwood sandals. The thing that piques my interest here is her Kzeniya ‘Wild Black’ clutch: the sharp-edged black-and-white leather clutch with geometric mirrors has just become my must have.

Alexandra Roach: With so much black on this red carpet, I was delighted to see the Welsh actress wearing this green-and-white Emilia Wickstead Spring 2013 long-sleeved flared dress. Simple styling – just adding nude Louboutins and a simple bun – ensured all focus was on her gorgeous dress.

Jenna-Louise Coleman: The actress wore a black-and-white on-trend floor-length dress with peaked shoulders and a leather belt accent by Latvia designer, Katya Shehurina. She also styled her look with the Kzeniya ‘Wild Black’ clutch which only fuels my must have desire for this clutch.

Helen Mirren In Nicholas Oakwell Couture – 2013 BAFTA Awards

Helen Mirren In Nicholas Oakwell Couture - 2013 BAFTA AwardsDame Helen Mirren joined the ranks of hair chameleon Katy Perry and lavender-loving Kelly Osbourne with her shocking new ‘do, which she debuted at the 2013 BAFTA Awards on Sunday at the Royal Opera House in London, England.

To go with her hair, the Leading Actress nominee chose a long-sleeve gown from the Nicholas Oakwell Spring 2013 Couture runway.

Featuring floral embroidery, the chiffon dress was somewhat weighed down with its heavy lining and that shiny silver wrap. But at least she didn’t up her BAFTAs surprise factor even more by wearing the gown in its original, see-through runway incarnation.

It didn’t really matter what she had on, though, as her cotton-candy pixie cut was the main attraction.

She quoted ‘America’s Next Top Model’ as her inspiration behind the hair hue. My jaw is still on the floor.

Known for her classic grace on the red carpet, this was quite the scandalous departure for Helen.

She certainly gave the fellow Nicholas-Oakwell-outfitted Paloma Faith a run for her money in the hair department.

Helen Mirren In Badgley Mischka – 2013 Golden Globe Awards

Helen Mirren In Badgley Mischka - 2013 Golden Globe Awards

Looking chic with an edge, Helen Mirren stepped took to the red carpet at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in LA on Sunday evening for the 2013 Golden Globe Awards upstaging starlets half her age.

Helen proved that fierce style knows no age boundaries as she turned heads in a fabulous Badgley Mischka Pre-Fall 2013 gown.

Her black gown shimmered with intricate gold beaded accents, and she capped it all off with a simple gold clutch.

The contrast between the black and the gold was not only the perfect touch of old-Hollywood glamour, but also proved to stand out amongst a sea of nude tones on the carpet at this year’s Globes.

I love that Helen opted for long sleeves (a choice that seemed to be deemed smart in the surprisingly low LA temperatures) and that she opted for a relaxed wavy bob hairstyle.
