Every red carpet brings with it a bounty of iconic beauty moments, but none so much as the Cannes Film Festival — and this year was no exception. From Anne Hathaway‘s ’70s-inspired ‘do to Andie MacDowell’s crystal-embellished under-eye look, the event certainly wasn’t short on glamour.
But for us, it was none other than style icon and Hollywood royalty Dame Helen Mirren that stole the show in the final days of the 2022 Cannes Film Festival.
Helen strutted down the carpet donning waist-length platinum blonde extensions swept back into a fierce half-up style. The look was completed with a exaggerated winged eye and electric pink lip and we are simply obsessed.
She was joined by pal Andie and the two danced past the photographers before Helen wowed us all with the most dramatic hair flick ever seen on a red carpet.
In true Helen form, the 76-year-old actress eschewed expectations and beauty standards and opted for an eye-catching beauty look and silver mirror ball gown. And this is nothing new for Helen, who absolutely slayed the SAG Award red carpet earlier this year.
And perhaps we can all learn a thing or two from Helen about defying expectation and embracing your youthful spirit, no matter how old you are.
If nothing else, she is proof that, like wine, beauty really does get better with age.
