Red-Carpet Look Book: Helen Mirren

Mirren often downplays her own celebrity with understated, casual ensembles. Of course, the Dame is 64 and, like Meryl Streep (who’s 60), she’s wisely not trying to compete with the Sandra Bullocks or Julianne Moores. But that doesn’t mean she’s shying away from attention: Mirren is not afraid to go sleeveless with a long black gown, or pair a youthful-looking long tulle skirt with a smart black blazer. And, when dressing down, she expertly pulls off welcome pops of color. Always tasteful and never squeezing herself into anything too snug or glitzy (Sophia Loren has that beat covered), Mirren is drawing a fashion map for the rare actress who manages to work past her fifties.
