Helen Mirren in Hong Kong: classic red carpet makeup

by Kathy Saunders -

Actor Helen Mirren is by no means a stranger to the world's more prestigious red carpet events, having attended more film premieres, award ceremonies et al. than most uof us have had hot dinners in recent years. Now's she's taken things up a notch or two in Hong Kong, appearing at a 50th Anniversary Gala alongside London Mayor Boris Johnson.

Naturally, she upstaged the politician somewhat in her red lace Dolce & Gabbana gown!

Timeless RED carpet beauty

As you might imagine, the RED star is something of a pro when it comes to choosing the right hair and makeup for any occasion. She also happens to be aware of just how good red looks on her. Perhaps that's why she agreed to star in the RED films in the first place, or maybe it was the idea of handling machine guns and ball gowns in the same scene.

Red was, in case you haven't noticed, was the colour of the moment for Dame Helen so it was only natural to see her spoting a glossy red lipstick to complete her look.

She's done it again!

Once more, she gave us a beauty look to match not only her star status but also that of just about anyone else on the red carpet.

Might she be our favourite British Dame?
