Looking at this, we could weep over the years of granny dresses and widow’s weeds she kept getting from Dolce & Gabbana.

Queen Helen, those two Italian bitches don’t know you like we do. THIS, darling; this is what you should be doing with yourself. With this look, you have managed the somewhat Helen Mirren-specific (when you’re at your best) trick of looking chic as fuck AND hot as fuck at the same time. Silver, sparkly and form-fitting? That’s your sweet spot, darling. Why you’d want to keep getting stuck in those lace schmattas and floral church dresses is beyond us. You are both a queen (of the island nation of Fuckinfantastica) and a movie star and it’s good to see you remember that fact with this look. Brava, dear.

  • HomeOfficeGirl

    Gorgeous!! Love love love the hair… And body?! Damn she’s got it!!

    • livesarah

      I only wish she had foregone the little recent freshening up of her face. Everything else is definitely #lifegoals.

  • Karen B

    Perfection. All the little sheer and cut out starlets need to stop, bow, and taking notice. This is how a grand dame does it.

    • Lucía Gavello

      Best dressed. Full stop.

    • GSMSF

      Exactly what I was thinking. If you have to stoop down to see through dresses you are not a pro like Dame Mirren.

  • Saturnine

    I gasped out loud when I saw this. Perfect. Full stop.

    • bananafish

      I gasped and then I just kept staring at her. I literally could not take my eyes off her, which I suppose makes this the most successful red carpet outing…ever.

      • Nancy Arseneault-Heald

        Whoever made whatever she is wearing as foundation under that dress deserves a damn award. It looks perfectly natural and sexy without screaming GIRDLE.

  • nicer than i sound

    This is the best she’s ever looked. This is the best ANYONE has ever looked.

  • I saw a thing on youtube today where they described the grown-up girl’s aim of dressing when they go out to be both comfortable and fuckable. And Queen Helen has nailed it here – the dress looks perfectly fitted, so she won’t have to tug at it, supple and moveable, not too tight and crazy hot.

  • unbornfawn

    WERQ. Bowing down.

  • Buellie413

    Dear Sparkle Jesus,

    For my 36th birthday I would like to be magically transformed into this hot-ass lady. If that is not possible, please mail me a pair of those earrings and a copy of “How to Cope with Not Being Helen: A Study in Disappointment.”

    Love,
    Me

    • Chloe Denmark

      Everyone should get that for their 36th birthday.

      • stellavision

        I didn’t. *cries in corner*

        • Buellie413

          BOO. Sparkle Jesus owes you a pony and probably some killer shoes.

      • tryinnottobetoojudgy

        How about my 61st…..coming up in 5 months. Maybe if Sparkle Jesus starts now, a miracle could occur!! Helen Mirren is RIDICULOUS: beautiful, smart, sexy, talented, and seems like she’d be the best person ever to sit and chat with over wine. Please, Sparkle Jesus, PUH-LEEEEZZZZEE?

    • megohd

      Written by Jane Fonda

      • Buellie413

        HA!

    • RubenKitT

      Sparkle Jesus wins the internet today

  • imperfectlaura

    She so earns the title Queen Helen of Fuckinfantastica that if she actually wore a tiara with this look I wouldn’t be mad.

    • Imasewsure

      As long as the tiara is adorned with “T” & “Lo” in diamonds, that is…

  • Imasewsure

    I’m done for the year… this is my number one for sure

  • The Versatile Chef

    The only thing missing from this look is a motherfucking CROWN.

    • Frank_821

      as a married british aldy, isn’t she alloowed a tiara…lol 🙂

      and she would rock it too

    • imperfectlaura

      I so agree. In fact, I think Queen E should’ve loaned Queen H the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland tiara. It’s one of my favorites, and I think Queen H would look stunning in it.

  • numenah

    Standing ovation!

  • Anna

    *applies for a citizenship to the Island Nation of Fuckinfantastica*

    She is luminous, sexy as hell, and she knows it. WERQ, Queen Helen.

    • scoobysnacks

      Imma be a lady in waiting.

  • Audrey Lee

    Bowing down. Perfection. Jewelry is gorgeous, face and hair on point, and that DRESS.

  • Truthiness2U

    Best of the night, to me at least. Because she’s not some twiggy, young thing, but she looks hot as hale, and still elegant. The fit is a dream, the acessories are all great, hair is wonderful.

    Who wouldn’t want to both be, and do her, looking like this?

    Bow down to the Queen.

  • Gatto Nero

    Dame Helen saves the day. God, she looks gorgeous. Love the little wave in her hair.

  • BlackCatBitch

    Amen.

  • Wink

    “Clear the carpet, and get out of my way. All you basic bitches in your basic dresses, this is how to SLAY!”

  • Mary Elizabeth Poytinger Baume

    it is AMAZING in its detail close up.

  • gotgreyhound

    As everyone else has been saying: Perfection! I have not always been on the “Queen Helen can do no wrong” train, but this is really spectacular!

  • lamamu

    Her hair color is an EXACT match to her dress. AMAZING.

  • Chloe Denmark

    I love that she looks smug as hell with the BeMeorDoMe attitude.

    • jenno1013

      Be Me AND Do Me.

  • Lisalemann

    I want to be her when I grow up – she’s just amazing. Beautiful and perfect.

  • appliquer

    A vision

  • Pennymac

    She shames all of us mere mortals. I doubt that most bodies are anywhere near that banging at 25, let alone 70. She looks beyond fabulous. I’m not bowing down, I am full on prostrate on my face in homage…

  • tereliz

    That bias effect is very flattering. Just beautiful. I’m getting a bridal feel from the model, but Dame Helen is magically counteracting that with her chicness.

  • Sekhmet6

    Line up, wanna bes ! The Queen is here to school ya’ll !

  • evave2

    Those earrings won the night for me. Just gorgeous.

    T/L, you always say that people should not wear a pale color like this (can look washed out); I generally agree. But here, she just looks fabulous.

    So the rule of color and skin has a Queen Helen exception.

  • B_C_J

    Breathtaking

  • ojosazules

    So relaxed and “effortless.”

  • GorgeousThings

    Someone (was it the Fug Girls?) said she looked like a glass of champagne. Totally agree and it’s perfect for her!

    • Fitzperry

      Perfect description.

  • Jacob Daniel

    She looks INCREDIBLE! Those earrings and bracelet are the perfect touch!

  • OrangeChia

    Finally watched the SAGs yesterday afternoon with Mr. OC. She walked on stage and I yelled at the screen “THAT IS THE QUEEN OF FANFUCKINGTASTICA”. While he agreed with me, he did correct my horrible error of the island nation’s name. How he knows this is beyond me, but TLo has reached people they don’t even know.

    Damn, Helen. Seriously. I nearly wept with joy. And you, my lady, look like you are enjoying it.

  • TRSTL

    THIS is the post I have been waiting for all day!! Breathtakingly gorgeous!!

  • chelseaad

    bow down, bitches

  • Heathery

    My favorite look of the night!

  • Apocalipstick Now Redux

    She looks amazing, better than the women 1/3 her age. Just stunning. There is a funny tweet going around about Helen Mirren and Gwendoline Christie fangirling all over each other in an elevator.

  • lynnlee

    That dress looks better on her than it does on the model. She’s my shero!

  • steph

    Bow Down, the Queen has Arrived!

  • samo_samo

    Those earrings! Love them! She looks spectacular.

  • MilaXX

    SHUTTING. IT. DOWN! WERQ!!!!!

  • MannahattaMamma

    So beautiful and elegant and just…sigh. Perfect.

  • happygolucky7

    I renounce my agnosticism. I believe in Dame Helen Mirren, and she is a Goddess. I see the Truth and the Light. Bowing down.

  • KittieLynnNYC

    I want to be Helen Mirren when I grow up.

  • Stuart Miller

    Queen Helen says: “Look, learn, and eat it, bitches.” She has moved beyond “WERQing it”–what can we call “blowing everyone else in sight off the map”?

  • stellavision

    Where is the sequined mic so she can drop it?

  • Radish

    Wow.

  • teensmom99

    For a while, I really thought she was finally slipping into old ladyhood and I was okay with that because Lord knows she earned it but now I just want to bow down and ask for forgiveness. She is amazing.

  • Grumpy Girl

    A special shout out to her makeup artist here, because her face looks amazing in a way we’ve not seen of late. Her skin looks luminous and soft, and the colors are muted but perfect. It all looks so perfect together: hair, face, jewels, dress, manicure. Wow!

  • spirit52

    Breath taking, and she knows it!!!

  • Maxima

    Breathtakingly lovely.

  • GemFemme

    The Silver Fox is shutting it the hell down.

    • VCR1

      Perfect nickname for her!

  • BrooklynBomber

    YES! Now, that’s what I’ve been talking about. Please, PLEEEEEZEE stay with this silhouette. No more dirndly skirst, pleeeze?

  • Kristin

    Striking. You brought your A-game, dear.

    • Shawn EH

      And the jewelry is on the hand with more age spots, and is the color of the dress and the hair. Someone is very comfortable with growing older.

  • Lilithcat

    Helen could give lessons to some people 40-50 years her junior. She looks amazing. Dears, this is how you look hot as hell without slutting it up.

  • Eric Stott

    Good GOD that is fine

  • Joanna B

    Better than the model. Amazing.

  • alliekat9090

    DAYUM!

  • KT

    *faints and becomes a lesbian all at once*

  • majorbedhead

    Jesus tap dancing Christ, she is killing it.

    I’m sorely tempted to let my hair go white and cut it into a copy of her cunning bob. Oh, and lose about muttermuttermutter number of pounds.

  • I absolutely love everything about this! She is fabulous!!

  • jilly_d

    GOD. DAMN. IT!

  • Sofia Lopez Garcia

    I really hope someone shows this website to Helen Mirren. She needs to know how much we adore her.

  • Mona_Visa

    Seriously, I want to cry, she is so pretty. This is perfect. This is how you walk the red carpet.

  • Carla_Charlton

    WOW! She really is the queen of that magical isle!

  • megohd

    Did they send everyone else home when she showed up? “The SAG Awards Red Carpet has been cancelled due to Helen Mirren outclassing everyone for all time.”

  • Aidan B

    We are not worthy!! This is goddamn perfection.

  • Winnie

    I’m running to the gym right now! Hot damn, Queen Helen!!!

    • VCR1

      She has an amazing figure! I’ll head to the gym later after I eat this ice cream….

  • StillGary

    Dayum! They just poured the sexy lady in!

  • Miss_Led

    Wowza!

  • Beto

    *Kneels down, forehead to floor* Her great majesty of the Island Realm of Fuckinfantastica has arrived bitches, bow down!

    Classy, chic, hot and elegant. All at once. Only she can achieve that. I’m a man and I want to be like her when I reach my 70s: hot, fuckable and elegant.

    • Nonono…..lie flat..prostrated is the only suitable position when paying respects to Queen Helen.

      • Beto

        Damn! I fucking totally agree with you! *Beto lies flat upside down on the floor*

  • Dan_In_NYC

    Her foundation garment game is so on point – like 17 on a scale of 1 to 10. Her rack is spectacularly featured here.

  • abkells

    She looks like a tall glass of champagne. Perfection.

  • MaggieMae

    I want to be her when I grow up!

  • julnyes

    Sheer Perfection (said in my Mary Berry voice)

  • penguinmom

    Those earrings! That hair! That bracelet! That smile! Swoon; clunk.

  • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

    Awesome. I wonder if Queen Helen ever reads TLo. She should.

  • VioletFem

    Gloriously glamorous.

  • Bland Gland

    It’s the same color as her and she’s a total BABE in it.

  • Kaonashi

    She looks lovely from head to toe. There’s a picture of her hugging Idris that’s absolutely precious. <3

  • Little Girl Voice: “Moooovie stttaaarrr!”

  • Rene

    GORGEOUS!!!! And classy, as always. I always remember my friend’s words (she’s 20). “Helen has better boobs than I do, makes me mad”

  • Myra Amler

    A-MAZ-ING. She is perfection.

  • Sarah Walsh

    Her bracelet looks like a tiara. Well done.

  • Kelly

    Hands down the best look of the night. I think Mirren almost always looks interesting (even when I hate the outfit), but this so much more than just “interesting” or “well-suited.” I’d call it her personal best (and I’ve seen a lot of excellent Mirren styling/outfits). Transcendent.

  • LibKat

    Clear the red carpet. Her Majesty has arrived!

  • OneRing

    Perfection. Not a single nit to pick here. Gorgeous.

  • shoebee

    Weeping at her amazing WERQ

  • Shannyn Marie

    I’m sure there was loud sobbing and subtle weeping inside multiple limos as waves of insecurity washed over the other lady stars who refused to get out of the car when this level Royal Hottness stepped onto the red carpet. I bow down, avert my eyes and tremble.

  • ladybane

    She looks good and she knows it! I do want to see her throw down with Jane Fonda, though.

  • AutumnInNY

    Stunning from head to toe. Show some of these misguided starlets how its done Helen.
    Brava indeed.

  • sas318

    She has a magnificent eye for style. Can she give some of it to me?

  • SuzyQuzey

    Amazing, all around. The dress is like her hair in fabric form, sprinkled with diamonds.

  • The Queen will see you now…

  • portlandmermaid

    Dayum is right! I like her tiny belly pouch, it keeps her mortal.

  • CatLady

    A goddess draped in silver. Love her so much!

  • DrMomLovesLife

    *genuflecting*

  • Lurker

    #DEAD.
    Queen Helen just SLAYED the SAGS.

  • Nina Bartoletta

    WOW I admire her so much, she looks better than alot of young girls look, and she is approaching 71 yrs of age! Way to go, Helen!

  • Iroqhard

    That second pic- DAMN HELEN her body is amazing. I’m in my 40’s and never looked that good.

  • LadyVimes

    God I hope I looks as good as she does when I’m her age. Wish I could now, actually. Snaps, lady.

  • AnneElliot

    Tied with Alicia Vikander FTW. Loving these elegant sequined MOVIE STAR looks, hope this is a trend away from sheer skirts and sternum-baring dresses.

  • Andrea Jane

    I don’t want to be Helen Mirren when I grow up – I want to be her NOW.

  • Anna Cabe

    Shiny, sexy, and somehow appropriate to Queen Helen’s age and station in life as ruler of Fuckingfantastica. Brava.

  • PLH

    Perfection!

  • Byodo-In

    Flawless!

  • DCinUSA

    I feel like a beautiful dress like this makes her very marketable for more roles like the ones in Red and Red2. She’s not your everyday granny!

  • yayito83

    I love her so much *bows down*

  • oneWEIRDword

    BAM!

  • DesertDweller79

    Oh my God. WERQ! Perfection! WOW! I’m 36 and I so want to be her!

  • JynxTheCat

    Perfection. WHO do we think has received the most WERQs here on TLo? I presume Helen but…
    Thoughts?

    • somebody blonde

      Her or Tilda.

  • This is a Werq. Why isn’t this a werq? I’m gasping

  • knittingmad

    my husband would kick me to the curb for a chance at Helen Mirren.

  • greymain

    just LOVE .

  • MyFavoriteColorIsGlitter

    #goals

  • somebody blonde

    I don’t think I can deal with this. She’s too amazing. I somehow want to be AND do her.

  •  Cαrlσs Quiñσnes ♐

    It is incredible how sexy she looks in this dress.. Wow.. she blew me away

  • musi_

    SLAY

  • A_guy01

    Sigh. When I grow up I want to be Helen Mirren.

  • Maggie Smith

    Jeeebus! I wanna be as hot as Helen when I grow up!!!!

  • Lolla

    Bowing all the way down.
