Dame Helen Mirren, we didn’t know you had this in you! The ageless actress stunned on the red carpet of the BAFTAs on Feb. 10 with a funky new pink dye job. Color us impressed!
Red carpets have always seemed to encourage fashion and beauty risks, from J.Lo to Rihanna to Nicki Minaj. But it was a more seasoned star who got inspired to the max at the EE British Academy Film Awards on Sunday, Feb. 10 in London — Dame Helen Mirren shocked everyone when she stepped on the carpet sporting hot pink hair!
Helen Mirren’s Hot Pink Locks
Helen is famous for her gorgeous hair, but the 67-year-old actress shook things up by going pink! The color change is DEFINITELY a surprise, but what’s more surprising is that Helen actually pulled off the look flawlessly!
Matched with a semi-sheer, off-white gown with bright white embroidered flowers, Helen’s hair was actually her best accessory. And the look was completed by Helen’s pink nail polish and lipstick. This woman knows how to accent a dress!
Helen Mirren already looks incredible for her age, and the new pink ‘do shows that she’s feeling just as young as she looks.
Helen Mirren’s Pink Inspiration
Much younger stars have popularized the pink hair dye trend — Katy Perry, Dianna Agron, and Kelly Osbourne (although hers is more purple) are just a few that come to mind — and Helen admits that her new hair color was inspired by a younger star. Well, sort of.
On the BAFTA red carpet, Helen explained to reporters that she was modeling her cut and color off of a contestant from the TV show America’s Next Top Model who sported a similar style.
“I just thought it would be fun to dye my hair pink,” Helen said. “I mean, honestly, I was watching America’s Next Top Model and the season where there were the British girls. Well the British girl who won, she had pink hair, and I thought, ‘That looks really pretty.’ So I’m copying her basically.”
