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.

Helen Mirren In Jenny Packham – The Tonight Show with Jay Leno

Helen Mirren In Jenny Packham - The Tonight Show with Jay Leno

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.

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.
