When the general public looks at Dame Helen Mirren, they see an international icon, a timeless beauty, a silver-screen legend so universally respected that she was appointed to the Order of the British Empire for her services in the dramatic arts. Rarely do they see a 72-year-old woman with her own set of insecurities, as if there's no possible way someone so talented, successful, and poised could look at her life and feel unsure of herself. "I have experienced insecurity all my life, and I still do on a daily basis," Mirren told The Telegraph in a February interview.
Helen Mirren, award-winning actress, revealed to "The Daily Mail" that she recently had her eyebrows microbladed and she loved the procedure.
Encouraging people to "give up clothes for good," actress Helen Mirren joins a number of other notables for a British campaign intended to raise money for the treatment and cure of childhood cancers.
As if she weren’t already legendary enough, actress Cicely Tyson just landed a magazine cover at the age of 92. The actress, who recently presented alongside Anika Noni Rose at the Emmys , is one of Elle’ s picks for this year’s Women in Hollywood Issue , and her cover is gorgeous. The annual list, which celebrates a number of Hollywood’s trailblazing females, prompted the reveal of seven different cover versions created by the publication. It seems like Tyson’s might be the most popular. At 92, Tyson is officially the second-oldest woman to grace the cover of a magazine — fashion guru Iris Apfel was a cover girl at 93 — but she certainly isn’t the only star showing how gorgeous aging truly is. From Meryl Streep and Tina Turner to Lauren Hutton , here are all of the ageless beauties who have been cover girls.

L’Oréal Paris is known for its inclusivity. Despite causing controversy by dropping transgender model Munroe Bergdorf from a recent campaign, the beauty brand is still going strong with its other ambassadors. On Sunday, several famous faces took to a special beauty-based catwalk to celebrate L’Oréal’s vast make-up selection. Taking over the Champs Élysées for one of the most diverse catwalks Paris has ever seen, the celebrities wore stand-out tailored and printed designs from various French talents. There was 72-year-old Helen Mirren and 79-year-old Jane Fonda (in a major tiger print dress) alongside the likes of curvy model Iskra Lawrence and fashion’s latest It-faces Adwoa Aboah and Winnie Harlow. The singer Cheryl also made her first appearance after giving birth to son Bear, wearing a stand-out two-toned lipstick look from L’Oréal’s Balmain collaboration, while the “world’s most beautiful girl,” Thylane Blondeau , appeared almost unrecognizable in a floral dress.

PARIS (AP) — Jane Fonda and Helen Mirren were the toast of Paris as the two septuagenarian actresses modelled for L'Oreal. The cosmetics giant transformed the Champs-Elysees avenue into a dazzling open-air fashion runway for a one-off event on Sunday.
Helen Mirren proved that being blue isn’t always a bad thing. On Monday night, the actress attended the premiere of her new film, Collateral Beauty, in New York City covered in the color from head to toe — and it worked. The 71-year-old wore a pale blue, three-quarter-sleeve Marchesa dress stitched all over with a pattern of birds and flowers.
Think your beauty peak is when you are young and fresh-faced? Not so fast. As these stars demonstrate, getting older just might mean looking better than ever.

But Helen Mirren, who, on Monday, attended opening night of Verdi’s Otello at New York’s Metropolitan Opera at Lincoln Center, decided to take things in an entirely different sartorial direction. The Oscar winning actress, 70, wore a dress from Dolce & Gabbana’s mother-themed fall 2015 collection, which showed in Milan early last spring. Made of double silk organza, the fit-and-flare midi dress is covered in a print of children’s drawings of houses, fish, and rainbows. Interestingly, children’s-drawings-as-fashion was somewhat of a mini-trend this past year, with Angelina Jolie wearing a Atelier Versace gown and veil embroidered with drawings by her six children for her wedding to Brad Pitt.
The ASA stated today that L'Oreal hadn’t airbrushed out Mirren’s wrinkles, and that ads featuring her weren’t in breach of the U.K.’s strict truth-in-advertising standards.
Helen Mirren’s 1st L’Oreal Ad Is Raw, Refreshing, & Officially Unretouched We’ve been eager to see Helen Mirren’s L’Oreal ads since she was announced as the beauty brand’s new spokesperson back in October — but it seems other people were more eager to accuse her first commercial as being inauthentic. The 30-second ad, currently airing in the UK and Ireland for L’Oreal Age Perfect, is cheeky, smart, and raw — just like Mirren, herself.
Helen Mirren’s repeatedly proven that sexiness doesn’t dissipate with age. The 69-year-old wears a bikini better than most , she’s even rocked the same Dolce & Gabbana dress as 24-year-old pop star Rita Ora (better, one might argue). So we’re not totally shocked that on Monday night, the actress wore a long-sleeved form-fitting gown that earned her the best dressed of the night award topping other attendees, many of whom are decades her junior. In a navy blue dress by Stella McCartney, with sheer panels dotted with sequins, Mirren made a statement at the Roundabout Theatre Company’s 2015 Spring Gala in New York City.
When Helen Mirren rides the subway, she does so with grace, poise, and style. The 69-year-old Academy Award winner was spotted taking New York City public transportation over the weekend, and even though looking elegant underground during the winter is nearly impossible, the British actress pulled it off. Wearing a Astrakhan fur coat with white fluffy collar, long lavender gloves, and carrying a large structured tote, she perfectly exhibits why she’s worthy of her knighthood. Mirren isn’t the only one that has dared to take the subway; Victoria Beckham, Taylor Swift, and even diva Mariah Carey have traveled with the masses all while looking like the elements haven’t touched them (seriously, how do they do it?!).
Old Hollywood hair, white dresses, a barrage of diamonds—those are things you expect to see on the red carpet. But tonight’s Golden Globe Awards were full of style surprises: No one wore Oscar de la Renta, Jennifer Aniston’s hair was up, Amal Clooney singlehandedly brought back opera gloves, and the Girls cast dropped the ball. Click through for the night’s most unexpected moments.
Helen Mirren wears a pen on her lapel and holds a sign in solidarity for the rally that happened today in Paris. The most statement-making accessory of the evening was not a Bulgari bracelet or a Cartier necklace, but the “Je Suis Charlie” sign or pin. George and Amal Clooney wore them.
Matching your dress to the carpet never gets old! Lena Dunham matched her shoes, lipstick, and dress, in a cherry red Zac Posen (that we predicted). Her fellow Girl, Alison Williams, wore Armani Prive, while Helen Mirren and Jane Fonda jazzed up their gowns with plenty of sparkle. But we want to know who you think wore red best—vote below!
Prince William and Kate Middleton concluded their 3-day visit to New York City last night. And though she met the First Lady of New York, Chirlane McCray, and hung out with Beyonce and Jay-Z in Brooklyn, our eyes were glued to just one thing: what the Duchess wore. Luckily, she ended her trip in a gown. Unluckily, it was a gown we’d seen not once, but twice, before.
