On rocking pink hair at this year’s Oscars:

“I’d been watching America’s Top Model which I’m obsessed by,” she told BBC Breakfast while promoting her new play The Audience. This girl had her pink hair and I noticed because it came out really quickly so there she is with really pink hair and then five days later it’s all gone so I thought that would be cool, I might have a go at that”.

… says 67 year-old Helen.

See more red carpet pictures of her next!

    I actually think its cute on her, shes having fun.

    • PS

      Agree, she’s having fun and that makes it work. Weird, on everyone else I would have said that it looks meh, but it’s Helen Mirren and she just pulls it off. Great 🙂

  • lucy

    some people’s sexiness just makes gender and age irrelevant. helen mirren is sexy because she doesn’t give a f. and this is coming from an 18 year old girl.

    • Adele

      Agreed. I admire her attitude and style so much. She’s a hundred times cooler than many young and hip “It-girls” imo.

    • marliellala

      so true :))

    • Hazal

      I agree as well 🙂

  • annemarie

    She’s cute. The hair looks great with the pink lipstick.

  • HazeL

    She rocked the pink hair, epecially as she just had fun with it. In some ways I’m looking forward to getting older, it seems (in celeb world – idk about irl) that everyone becomes more confident and seems to live life better than those in their 20’s. Isn’t there a saying ‘youth is wasted on the young’?

  • Sienna

    It looks awful. She’s not an ANTM contestant.

  • CK

    honestly i’ve seen a lot of ladies her age having this grey hair colored pink-Ish and violet-Ish, in some countries there is some old fashioned way of some hair “procedure or coloring” (am not sure) so lots of my teachers had this thing going on years ago when i was still a student.

    • misscheeks

      naI’m with you CK. Older ladies have been getting colour rinses in their hair for ages, it’s nothing new imo. Helen looks nice though.

      Slightly off-topic lol, I’m thinking of colouring my hair with semi permanent colour this summer but I don’t know if it’ll show up since my hair is natually very dark.

      • misscheeks

        * oops I’m

    • Agreed! To me purple or pink hair on an older lady is not that unusual – even blue! So, it doesn’t make her look younger at all to me. I think she’s amazing though – still very attractive.

      @misscheeks. I don’t have very dark hair (it’s a weird “in-between colour that is impossible to create artificially” – according to my hair dresser!), but I did a semi-permanent chestnut colour last summer with some golden highlights and no one could tell I had it coloured! Now, I may have some dense friends (or truly universally coloured hair), but it really wasn’t all that different to me either – and it wasn’t cheap, so I felt annoyed! I think it’s really hard to make much difference to darker hair without bleaching it at all – but I’m no expert. Maybe some others will have some better advice for you!

      • misscheeks

        Thanks for your input Erica, I agree about the bleaching part but my hair is baby-fine in places and pretty delicate. I guess I’ll just have to settle for a subtle tint of colour! 🙂

  • Jessica M

    She is, and always has been, incredibly cool. She was such a beauty back in the day, too.

  • Natalia

    While I admire her spirit for being so adventurous at her age, I think hair and women looks best w/ colors of nature, virgin hair (not chemically treated) being the best hair obviously, and then if colored, natural colors, bleached is always the worst. Not a fan of her pink, but, she doesn’t look terrible b/c of classy dress and short flattering hair style.

  • Polska Blondynka

    You know what, she looks fabulous. She’s in her 60s and she doesn’t give a damn. I wouldn’t too.

  • silvy

    I like it, its not vibrant pink, just a tint and i think it is a fun choice for a night

  • siennagold

    Love her. She’s cool and classy.

  • artemis

    it’s ok 😀 she looks better in her usual hair color tho

  • Me

    I actually think she pulled this off well. It is such a soft colour, of suits her skin tone well,

  • Kay

    She looks like an angel!

  • Debbs

    I LOVE her!

  • ludivine

    I think she is a sex bomb, but the hair is not really good. I like a natural colour on her, or even grayisch.

  • April

    I wonder if people would be so positive if this were a 40 year old, like say Cameron Diaz? I love Helen’s hair and think people should look the way they want no matter their age, but a lot of commenters talk about celebs being too “old” for certain fun looks, like Katy Perry…nice to see these comments tho.

  • serena

    I think the pink looks ok but she would look better with a lavender-gray color, like Kelly Osborne has.

  • JaneParker

    I didn’t like her hair when I saw it on the Oscars gallery but I actually like it better now for some reason. I could never wear my hair like that without feeling self-conscious and she looks genuinely at ease, so good for her!

  • Jj

    so cute she loved Sophie! Sophie was a dang cool contestant.

  • Jewel

    I like it. This shade of pink looks good as a hair color in general. It’s like Lightning or Serah from FFXIII have grown old. XD

  • vogt

    i would LOVE to have her as a grandmother!
