The Dame looked bow-down amazing in Reem Acra.

She was there to pick up a Career Achievement trophy, but that wasn’t the only accolade Helen Mirren deserved this week.

The veteran star picked up the gong at AARP’s Annual Movies For Grownups Awards in Beverly Hills on Monday, and wore what we’re calling her best-ever red carpet outfit.

(We’re happy to be debated on that point, she’s got a lot of great ones to choose from).


The Queen actress in fact turned to a label from this neck of the woods for her streamlined floor-sweeper, which came from Reem Acra’s Resort 2018 collection.

With the gown’s pared-back colour blocking and restrained use of metallic detailing, the Lebanese designer ensured Mirren looked both regal and contemporary all at once (and that’s no easy feat).

The Beirut-born label described the actress as “the picture of elegance” in the design, in an Instagram post shared shortly after the event.

We concur—Mirren is a one-time Queen of Britain, and all-time Queen of the red carpet.

We’ll leave you with the best of the rest from the night…
