Helen Mirren Has Pink Hair, Watches America’s Next Top Model


Helen Mirren is 67 years perfect. I’m not going to lie, I am always a fan of women who opt for aging gracefully instead of opting to go under the needle and knife (not that there’s anything wrong with that). I’m tired of “old” being associated with “ugly” or past your prime. Girl, is fierce.

Last night at the BAFTAs, Helen showed up with a new ‘do, a dyed, pink cut inspired by none other than America’s Next Top Model. She said, “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.”

This is why they say youth is wasted on the young. I bet Tyra is DYING.
