EE British Academy Film Awards - An Alternative View

At this very moment, Helen Mirren is probably lighting up a room. She is easily one of the most wonderful, awe-inspiring people on each red carpet she graces. Every time she steps out in public, she not only looks excellent, she also looks like she is having an incredibly good time.

As you may recall, we couldn’t help but give a standing ovation for her look at February’s BAFTA Awards where she donned pink hair and a gorgeous silver dress. When somebody is genuinely loving their life, you can tell; this is what makes Mirren’s whirls, twirls and turns in front of flashing bulbs so magical.

See? Everything flourishes around her. It’s a gift. Let this be a lesson to anyone who believes you need to be 23 and a supermodel in order to look incredible on the red carpet; you do not. Having a glowing personality, an excellent stylist (or sense of style for yourself) and a genuine smile are all it takes.
