At 78, Helen Mirren debuted a wild look in runway appearance – and everyone’s saying the same thing

Those who know Helen Mirren know that she is a Jack of all trades – having acted, written, and modeled in her decades-long career in the spotlight.

In more recent years, the 78-year-old actress’ modeling roles have only increased – and her appearance at this year’s Paris Fashion Week was no different.

Fans even took to social media to rave about how stunning she was, from the makeup she wore to her wild hair

Mirren – who was appointed Dame by Queen Elizabeth II in 2003 – is a highly decorated actor, having her breakthrough in 1980 when she starred in The Long Good Friday with Bob Hoskins.

Mirren then met Taylor Hackford several years later, the director of White Nights, a 1985 film she starred alongside Mikhail Baryshnikov, Gregory Hines, and Isabella Rossellini. The couple have been together since 1997.

Helen Mirren speaks about ageing

Aging almost 60 years since she started acting, Mirren has consistently spoken out on ageist beauty standards and was not particularly impressed when Esquire named her the “Sexiest Woman Alive.

“I don’t like the word sexual. There are people who are sexual, and [others] who are less sexual. But there’s got to be another word. ‘Sexual’ is so limiting,” she said. “Being powerful is so much more interesting than being beautiful.”

Mirren pulled off a powerful and interesting look in early June at the Ora! Film Festival in Italy, when she wore a bright pink maxi dress, with silver sequins, that’s cinched at the waist. She paired the look with comfortable open-toed silver flats and used a matching pink hair band to pull her long silvery-white hair from her face.

You’re not supposed to have longer hair after a certain age,” said Mirren, who spoke about her roles in Shazam! and 1923 on the British breakfast TV show, Lorraine.
