5Helen Mirren Looks to ‘America’s Next Top Model’ For Fashion Inspiration

Helen Mirren is a film legend, so she could show up at an awards show in a paper bag with a mop end for a wig and old KFC buckets for shoes and no one could say shit because she’s doing her and has earned the right to do so. She didn’t quite go that far at last night’s BAFTAs in London, but she did take a popular hair trend to the pensioner set by dyeing her hair a lovely shade of bubblegum pink, an idea she got from… an unlikely source, shall we say.

From People:

“I saw it on America’s Next Top Model, so I decided to have a go.”

First of all, I love that Helen Mirren watches America’s Next Top Model – I didn’t realise anyone still did. Second of all, I love that she has such a buck wild spirit that she didn’t think twice about heading to Katy Perry town with her locks. And while it’s a bit unusual, it certainly doesn’t look bad. I wish I could get away with pink hair, but it’s just not happening. Helen’s move was especially risky considering the BAFTAs are full of British people who aren’t really into bullshit and really are into class, fanciness and sexy accents.

In any case, the BAFTAs red carpet was chock full of stars, from Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman and Ben Affleck to Samuel L. Jackson, Jessica Chastain and more. Check out a gallery from last night’s red carpet below:
