Carpets & Candids: Helen wins in white

Helen Mirren rarely disappoints in style. But this dress might be her best ever. Definitely top 3. And yes, the lace cape totally makes it but really it’s about how majestically she’s wearing it. Which is to say that when she’s wearing it, I’m seeing a woman in her prime, collecting a career honour, and not someone who’s imagining her 4th wedding. It takes a certain energy – and not many have it – to wear a wedding dress and make it not look like a wedding dress.
