PDA Alert! Dame Helen Mirren Puckers Up for the “RED 2” LA Premiere

Timeless elegance. That’s the phrase that comes to mind when talking about Dame Helen Mirren.

Illustrating that elegance, Ms. Mirren looked awesome in a floor-sweeping green gown from the Elie Saab pre-fall 2013 collection. I love how she’s always age-appropriate (she’s 67!), elegant, and just simply awesome. She was at the red carpet premiere of RED 2 in Los Angeles on July 11. Here’s a close look:

Ms. Mirren attended the premiere with her husband of 16 years, director Taylor Hackford. The two even kissed each other on the red carpet! Now, whoever said there can’t be romance after the age of 50?

Inspired by Dame Mirren’s style, here are some gowns for elder women who refuse to succumb to hot flashes, saggy body parts, and wrinkles. After all, it is just a matter of accepting your age, Spanx, and a good skin care regimen, right?
