When Dame Helen Mirren showed off her princess dress and beautiful new pink locks at the BAFTAs on Sunday, there were two questions on everyone's mind:
1. How can a 67-year-old look this incredible and pull off pink hair?
2. What was her inspiration for the new rosy locks?
Turns out, Helen was inspired by America's Next Top Model contestant Sophie Sumner.
When asked about the new hue, Helen responded:
"I just thought it would be fun to dye my hair pink. I mean, honestly, I was watching America's Next Top Model and the season where there were the British girls. Well, the British girl who won, she had pink hair, and I thought, 'That looks really pretty.' So I'm copying her, basically."
So, what did Sophie have to say about being mentioned by DAME HELEN MIRREN?? She said:
"I had no idea. Wow, that is extremely flattering. I don't think anyone has ever followed one of my haircuts. She is an extremely beautiful woman and I think pink looks absolutely gorgeous on her."
Even Miz Tyra Banks herself heard about Helen's inspiration and said:
"We love Ms. Mirren. Her smize and her America's Next Top Model hair is to die for!"
We couldn't agree more! This woman has got it going on! Perhaps there should be a new season of ANTM: Silver Foxes??
