I Want To Be Just Like Helen Mirren When I Grow Up

This lady has balls, and I admire that.  Not only does she rock silver hair amazingly, she rocks pink hair even better.  WOW.  At the recent BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Arts) awards show, Helen Mirren wore a lavender gown by Nicholas Oakwell and that oh so glorious baby pink pixie do.  Bravo for the bold move!!!

At 67 years old, Helen Mirren isn't holding back when it comes to fashion or her personal style.  She told The Independent that her inspiration for the pink locks is British model Sophie Sumner, the winner of America's Next Top Model British Invasion.  I love that she takes inspiration form someone a fraction of her age and makes a look totally her own.  Although wearing candy colored hair is not to be expected from anyone in their sixties, she somehow makes it look age-appropriate.

Helen Mirren was nominated for her performance as Alma Reville in the film "Hitchcock" where she starred opposite Anthony Hopkins.  Although she lost to "Amour" star Emmanuelle Riva, she deserves a fashion award for Best Bold Move.  

To me, Helen Mirren is always a winner.  She is proof that age is irrelevant when it comes to fashion and that you can ROCK a look at any age.  I only dream of being half as stylish in my sixties as Helen Mirren.  Keep on keepin' on Ms. Mirren.
