We’re not even sure that singer Pink could pull of this look quite as seamlessly as Dame Helen.
Award show season is upon us once again, which means Hollywood’s pretty people are gearing up for some of the biggest red carpets of the year, and while this weekend’s events didn’t bring anything too showstopping, there were still a couple of winners that we hope foretell some major moments in the weeks to come.
The parade of Chanel “Little Black Jacket” exhibitions marched on in Berlin last night, drawing the usual coterie of chic femmes. Stateside, Jessica Biel and Helen Mirren fêted “Hitchcock” in high fashion threads, Nicki Minaj stepped out in hot, hot pink, and the Rihanna Plane finally touched down in NYC.
Dressing for the red carpet in the winter can be problematic (so long, dreamy dresses and cute skirts), but not impossible. Case in point: at the New York City premiere of Hitchcock, stars like Helen Mirren, Jessica Biel, and more managed to make some serious sartorial statements despite the chilly temps.
It’s officially awards season, which means that between now and March, there’s basically a red carpet event every other night. Last night, style stars like Emma Stone, Tilda Swinton, Rooney Mara, and Chloe Moretz (among many, many others) stepped out for the National Board of Review Awards Gala in everything from Miu Miu to J. Mendel. But with the Golden Globes just around the corner, who’s setting the style bar the highest?
When it comes to red carpets, there’s a lot of talk about dressing one’s age. But amidst all the hemming and hawing over sleeve length and decolletage on display, there’s one woman who always manages to break every so-called rule without, well, breaking a single rule: Helen Mirren. Case in point: the leather and leopard get-up she wore for the european premiere of Arthur.
We like to keep tabs on Helen Mirren‘s fashion choices because, you know, she’s awesome. When she’s not wearing stripper heels (or nothing at all), she apparently likes to wear comfy workout gear.
We spend a lot of time waffling between who we love more: Meryl Streep or Helen Mirren. But while Streep certainly reminds us of that fictional, artsy aunt who takes you to fabulous wine parties when your boyfriend dumps you, Helen Mirren is like a saucy fairy godmother, with whom you share cigarettes and booze and all your secrets. Which might be why we take any and all of her sartorial advice to heart.
Between all the brouhaha surround New York Fashion Week, Fashion’s Night Out, and the Toronto Film Festival, one wouldn’t be remiss in forgetting all about Venice. But contrary to popular belief, the Venice Film Festival has been trucking along at a very fashionable rate, complete with today’s closing ceremony. Now that it’s finally over, we’ve collected our thoughts — and our judgements! — and put together a gallery of what we think are some of Venice’s most fashionable moments. Who do you think was best dressed?
Beauty magazines worldwide often stress the importance of adopting a beauty regimen to unlock future benefits in your 30s, 40s, and so on. But while you slather on some of Philosophy’s “Hope in a Jar” in your battle to beat the clock, a recent survey is telling women to hold their horses and let the secret to beauty come naturally. According to researchers, British women hit their peak of attractiveness at the age of 31 — but what happens after that?
