2010 Venice Film Festival “The Tempest” Premiere – Helen Mirren In Marchesa

If only all Hollywood stars would grow old gracefully like Helen Mirren.

The British actress look outstanding at “The Tempest” Premiere during the 2010 Venice Film Festival this weekend.

She wore a Marchesa draped one shoulder scarlet gown with a shawl draped over her shoulders.

Her gold accessories included kitten heels and a gold Marchesa clutch.

2010 Cannes Film Festival: Chopard Trophy Party – Helen Mirren In Elie Saab Couture

Helen Mirren arrived at the Chopard Trophy Party wearing her second Elie Saab gown in 2 days during Cannes Film Festival.

The great Dame was sparkling with Chopard jewels as she walked the red carpet wearing an Elie Saab Couture gown.

Her stunning grey silk georgette gown with an embellished belt and asymmetrical sleeves is from Elie Saab’s Vintage Couture Collection.

Perfection as usual. She continues to fly the flag for over fifty and fabulous.

I adore the colour on her.

If I could be picky I would say the necklace is slightly OTT, but I understand why she wore it on this occasion.

2010 Cannes Film Festival: “Robin Hood” Premiere – Helen Mirren In Elie Saab

When I grow up I wanna be just like Helen Mirren because she’s one of the most elegant women to grace the red carpet.

We all expected Dita von Teese or Olga Kurylenko to be one of the first to wear a look from Elie Saab’s Fall 2010 collection, but Helen beat them to it.

The grand Dame opted for a black jersey asymmetrical one-sleeved gown with embroidered strap.

I love everything about this look from the new bangs, to the draped shoulder, to the rouge lips and the clutch, but I really don’t like those diamond Chopard cuffs.

I understand that she may have wanted something to help dazzle the look, but she would’ve been a perfect 10 without them.

Rome Film Festival Weekend Catch Up

“Viola Di Mare” Premiere

Maria Grazia Cucinotta was by far my favourite on the red carpet this weekend.

The stunning actress looked divine wearing an Armani Privé spiral gown which was embroidered with Swarovski crystals.

This gown is very similar to the Privé gown Sharon Stone wore recently.

Isabella Ragonese wore a beautiful dress with an unmistakable Missoni floral print from the Fall 2008 collection.

The grey and blue print dress had ruffled shoulders and an embellished detail cascading down one  side.

We don’t often get so see Roberta Armani on the red carpet, but she doesn’t disappoint wearing a Giorgio Armani Fall 2009 two-tone black on gold bustier dress.

Her brunette locks were swept to one-side, as she paired her dress with Armani accessories.

“Viola Di Mare” Photocall

I loved Isabella Ragonese’s Missoni dress, but I wasn’t crazy about her Isabel Marant Fall 2009 look.

I much prefer the runway colour combination.

“Up In The Air” Premiere

I wasn’t a fan of Elisabetta Canalis last red carpet look, but she does a complete 180 by looking spectacular wearing an Armani Privé Fall 2009 midnight blue strapless velvet gown, with a lighter blue satin bodice.

She opted to wear her sash around her neck rather than tying it into a cute bow as the look was presented on the runway.

George Clooney was decked out in Giorgio Armani tuxedo.

“The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus”

Lily Cole opted for a very familiar Dolce & Gabbana black corset gown, which looks amazing on her.

Despite seeing this gown many times in various colours, I’m not bored seeing it on Lily.

Rose McGowan toned down the sex kitten for a demure look despite the bright fuchsia colour of her Dolce & Gabbana gown.

Normally her looks are shorter, tighter and more revealing.

“The Last Station” Premiere

Helen Mirren was perfection personified – as always – wowing the crowds wearing a sleeveless gown with a large bow and diamond brooch detail.

She was easily my second favourite from this weekends looks.

“State of Play” World Premiere – Helen Mirren In Donna Karan


I was really disappointed when I found out that Rachel McAdams wasn’t attending the World Premiere of State of Play in London last night, but Helen Mirren was so breath-taking in her ivory Donna Karan draped silk dress (£1,571/€2,035), which showed off her legendary age-defying figure, that Rachel was instantly forgotten.

Helen completed her look with a matching coat, and peep-toe satin Jimmy Choo heels.

She more than outshone her fellow younger attendees. Hannah Spearitt and Jamelia may have walked the red carpet is mini dresses, but all eyes were on Helen.

Reality TV star Bianca Gascoigne arrived in a pink tutu, more suited to a young ballerina, than a grown woman walking the red carpet.

Hannah Spearitt wore a white T-shirt dress, which is cute, but the scruffy workman boots are hideous.

Jamelia looked good as always, wearing in a striped and sequin embellished mini shift D&G dress, teamed with navy suede heels, but she still couldn’t outshine Helen.
