“Oh, hello, everyone! Don’t mind me! I’m just popping in to remind you that I’M AWESOME.”
LOL love it, I was really happy yesterday some site had a “who wore it best” between her and Jessica Alba and Helen won!
It is a great dress
Nature has been very generous with this woman. I only wish that she’s branch out from ankle-strap shoes. They’re not hideous but they aren’t doing her any favors either.
It feels a tiny bit weird that I’m looking at a photo of sixty-something woman and thinking, wow, nice rack!
Sweet merciful crap that is a ridiculously hot woman. Seriously.
She never seems to look like she’s struggling to stay young like so many other famous women. She’s just a stylish, sophisticated woman who is comfortable in her own skin. I love it.
I bow to this woman.
She is an amazing reminder that getting older doesn’t have to mean getting dowdy.
She’s rocking this dress. My only concern is the boob area. Is she full-chested or is that a weak bra?
She absolutely is awesome. I wish I could believe I’ll be even have that fabulous when I’m her age.
Whoa! She is sexy! Thank you Helen Mirren for letting women know that aging does not mean one has to be frumpy, desperate or plastic. And again, whoa!!!
she is amazing…and has gotten more beautiful as she has gotten older…rock it Helen!!!
Most of us wish we as amazing when we were 20 as she does at 60. Well, maybe not most of us, I don’t want to speak for the rest of you. But I’ve never in my life been half as hot as Helen Mirren is now.
Great dress, as always. When I grow up, I want to be Helen “The Body” Mirren.
This dame is a-freakin-mazing! And check out the JBF hair.
Divine red on her. I bow, I curtsy, I swoon.
She looks great but the shoes and the length of the dress aren’t doing her any favours. The dress could be half an inch shorter and the shoes would be better without ankle straps. Together they stumpify her. Apart from that – she’s fantastic.
Nice figure, as the old ladies say.
Looks fantastic. I don’t think anybody is better than Helen Mirren at dressing attractively, even sexily, without ever looking like she’s attempting to come across as younger than she is. And I want the name of the shop where she buys her bras. She has quite the rack and it’s nearly always standing at perfect attention!
I LOVE her so much it makes me CAPSY.
Screw wanting to look like Helen Mirren when I get older, I want to look like her NOW. She’s fabulous. She’s never trying too hard, never looking slutty, plastic-y, dowdy, old. She is aging gracefully and beautifully. Hollywood needs to take a lesson from this woman.
Jesus, Mary and Oprah… that woman is amazingly gorgeous and incredibly sexy. I so want to be her when I grow up!
@Nina – as @gladly noted above, Helen Mirren has an excellent rack. See her bikini pictures from a few years back:
I think this dress is just a little bit clingier than she’d usually wear which makes said rack look bigger. She generally knows how to dress her figure.
And making more movies than any other broad in the busines, old or new. Go Helen.
I so want to be just like her when I reach her age. Because dang…
Red minx attack!
WHAT! If you had showed me this picture from the feet up I would be like “yawn, Christina Hendricks is wearing red again.” Damn, woman.
I want to be Helen Mirren when I grow up.
Great genes, good trainer, exemplary aesthetic sensibility…Is she closing in on her own age yet in “Well Played, Helen Mirren” nods from you guys?
can I be half as awesome… please!
Damn, she is wearing the hell out of that dress. It also needs to be said that, in addition to being smoking hot, this woman has about 75 tons of attitude. I am jealous and I am in awe. She’s the queen of everything.
I agree with Annabeth–I want to know where Helen gets whatever it is she wears underneath her clothes. And then I want to throw myself upon the mercy of the staff there.
Mirren and SWINTON rule the fashion world.
Sweet baby jebus.
Chamosaur, thanks for the bikini photo repost. I will print that out and put it on my fridge for inspiration. So many starlets should take lessons from her.
But the stunning red number here? It’s a tad big in the arms, armpits, and length, and her hair is a tad harsh. I’m sorry, someone had to say it.
CAN a dress be big in the armpits?
GOD this woman is hot. How she manages to be both age-appropriate AND sexy as hell I’ll never know. Plus she was hilarious and endearing on the Graham Norton show last week. LOVE HER.
Down DOWN, inner Vampire. Varicose veins are not sexy!
Wow! She looks awesome! I want to know what brand of bra she’s wearing, because, again, wow!
When I saw this I thought “she looks a bit like me in the hip area!” if only I was this awesome.
@vandalfan – I think the fit is perfect, because if it was really tight I don’t think it would be appropriate? How it’s a little relaxed is flattering and classy and has that effortless appeal. Le sigh. I adore this woman.
I need to talk about how amazing her hair looks. HER HAIR LOOKS AMAZING. I know right?
I wish I had Helen Mirren’s body.
FYI, I’m a dude.
She is such a class act. She always dresses AMAZING and wears everything with confidence. A beautiful woman in every way.
She should totally write a book on being awesome, so that I can buy said book and then try to be one scintilla as awesome as she is.
She’s a total babe, no question, but the hair’s getting a bit wig-like crazy and those shoes are giving her major cankles/mcstumpy legs, which we all know Dame Helen does not have.
To end on a positive note, the red is banging on her and that waist – it’s teeny!
@Chris: How nice, a dude! Welcome!!
Girlfriend appears to have some AWESOME undergarments to go with that awesome bod…everything’s always in exactly the right place (which we know from this site is much harder than it seems). Where do you buy them, Helen?
When I am her age – she will be my inspiration. Has a great outlook on life.

So awesome! I also love the fact that she’s doing all this crazy variety of film work: silly stupid Arthur remake, machine gun totin’ in Reds, the female version of Prospero in Shakespeare’s The Tempest. It’s like she’s saying “Sure! I’ll do it! Sounds like a blast!” Saying “yes” to life left and right. Right on Helen!
I aim to be Dame Helen when I grow up. Gorgeous.
I’m not worthy! I’m not worthy! She is the definition of AWESOME!!! ♥
Helen is my HERO!
I need a t-shirt that says “WWHMD?” because that will always steer me right. Spray tan? Bleach my hair? Starve myself? Botox? Wear something designed for someone 1/3 my age? WWHMD? She would say NO, NO, NO, NO, and NO. Awesome red dress? Treat yourself to good bras? Embrace your age? Know your strengths? YES YES YES and YES.
I want to be her when I grow up.
I would actually curtsy to this woman. HOW is she SO HOT? WWHMD indeed!
She’s a goddess. I adore and envy her.
How is she so freaking hot? It’s great to see a woman in her 60s who looks like she’s in her 60s, i.e. not getting crazy plastic surgery to emulate 20-year olds.
I remember seeing that photo of her in her bikini that was posted here a year or so ago and just drooling. I’m a straight female and I would love to tap that.
She’s growing her hair out after a cut. I give her points for rocking a growing-out cut.
Agree with Kirsten, those ankle straps aren’t doing her any favors. The dress is awesome, though.
Awesome indeed, except for the shoes, I agree with Kirsten too. The straps seem too tight, which give her ankles an old lady’s kinda of look. Pity.
I love that slightly too-long sleeve look, especially with a formal dress. So cute.
That brassiere is worth its weight in gold. Maybe it’s made of gold. Blessed by fairies. Made of gold fairy wings blessed by unicorns. If anybody should be shilling for Victoria’s Secret, it should not be firm, nubile post-teens, it should be breasty old broads who look this good.
So what if she’s old and sexy? Big deal. Who isn’t? What I like about her is she can act..and does this to improve the quality of any film she’s in and improves the quality of our minds as well.
@ Edith – I also want that shirt!!!!
Both Mirren and Judi Dench looked pretty ordinary in middle age and were suddenly rocking it when they were bonafide old.
Hot as Mirren looks here she is an actress and has to therefore look “hot” so everyone can say god she is still sexy at 60. Do ordinary women really want to look like this in their 60s? I am pretty ancient and I feel bored at the idea that I have a show off a decent rack or can wear pointy shoes to show I am aging well.
She looks amazing. I hope to look half as good when I am that age.
I think my nickname that I post as on here pretty much says it all.
AH-MAZING! Only one, tiny, minor thing though, I think the hem should hit mid-knee, it’s about an inch or two too long.
Just one word: WOW.
yeah, shoes. yeah, hemline. But seriously, who the f*** can look at anything but her chest? Good god, she is sexy. I will never be that sexy. She is awesome.
Love Helen, but she has cankles. Knee high boots would suit her, or long dresses. Definitely no strangulating ankle straps!
Can she send this to Christina Hendricks when she’s done with it?
I’m not denying she looks fab – she does. The dress/colour/cut/hair it’s all working BUT I think she could have a more flattering shoe. They are nude’ish, which is good for her legs, but I think the straps cut her off at the ankles a bit.
She looks uncomfortable in those shoes, like they’re really hurting her feet.
