Just When You Thought You'd Seen Everything

Helen Mirren debuts a pink 'do at the BAFTAs 2013. Are you loving her look?


Not one to let age define her, silver screen veteran Helen Mirren channeled her inner teenager when she stepped out with a cotton-candy pink pixie cut at the British Academy of Film and Television Awards on Sunday.

The 67-year-old actress, who paired her bright locks with a grey Nicholas Oakwell Couture gown, credited her daring 'do to the America's Next Top Model: British Invasion winner, Sophie Sumner.

"I just thought it would be fun," she told The Independent. "She had pink hair and I thought, 'Oh, that looks really pretty.' So I'm copying her."

Hollywood's next generation better watch their back.

The Hitchcock star, who's notorious for taking roles that rarely portray her real age, is also known for her age-defying figure. Mirren won L.A. Fitness' Body of the Year award in 2011, besting younger nominees Elle MacPherson and Jennifer Lopez.

What do you think of Mirren's new look? Should she have stuck to more "age-appropriate" strands? Sound off in our poll -- then defend your decision in the comments below.
