Dame Helen Mirren, born on 26th July 1945 and a true style icon. She dresses with grace and elegance and exudes stylish sophistication off the screen as much as she does on it.
She was even named the top style icon for women over 50 in a poll carried out by clothing company CC in 2011. Speaking to Vogue about she “style icon” status, “I think it’s great, I’m so surprised by it. At my age, it’s like: Wow, that’s so cool. I never thought that might happen. And I think of myself as sort of a bag lady, really. I wash up nice, but mostly I’m not very stylish.”
So as our dear Dame heads into her 68th birthday we wonder how we can steal her gracious refined style. Here are a few tips from us:
Wear statement jewellery: Helen is not afraid to express her style when it comes to jewellery. A knockout necklace or big cocktail ring can go a long way if you’re looking for red-carpet appeal. Remember though; don’t overdo it when it comes to big chucky jewellery. Have a browse of our Cocktail Collection for inspiration.
Wrap up: A scarf or a wrap is a perfect finishing touch; you can wear them in so many different ways, giving you a variety of both casual and dressy looks. Browse our range of scarves – something for every season.
Be bold and beautiful: Helen Mirren seems to defy the ageing process and makes bolder fashion choices as she gets older. She knows exactly what she wants and is not too bothered about what people think.
Be adventurous: Don’t shy away from the new. Try out a new haircut, a new style of clothing and of course try some new jewellery
So there you have it – a few fast fire tips for getting a stylish elegant look with the smallest amount of fuss. Here at The Jewellery Channel we’re big fans of the ageless actress, Helen Mirren – a real style icon. How about you? Do you love her style?
