You guys know how much I want to believe Helen Mirren can do no wrong, but… I think maybe she has done wrong. The shrug, the weird stitching, the shrug, the fact that I still think I can see some nipple underneath all that, the fishtail, the shrug, the hair, the lipstick, the SHRUG… It’s not that she isn’t still a silver fox; more that I think she’s not maximizing her silver foxyness in this outfit. I don’t want her to look like the Grande Dame of a brothel or anything, but I REALLY don’t want her to look like the Grande Dame of a picked-over department store sale rack.

Nor the Grande Dame of the Goodwill Store (last picture). You know, Helen, Red was just a job, not a suggestion.
