Style Evolution: Helen Mirren

Helen Mirren may be sixty-five, but she's not exactly getting into granny mode. The Oscar-winning actress was recently named one of the sexiest women in the world and memorably posed in the buff for New York Magazine in July this year.

And as these photos will attest, the star has only got better with age, transitioning from poodle perms and metal bras to chic bobs and elegant gowns that show off her age-defying curves. Browse the below galley for a look at Mirren's style evolution - both on and off camera.

Mirren rocked the hippie-chick look in 1976, donning a peasant skirt, see-through blouse, and (eek!) striped socks worn with peep-toe sandals. Where's the fashion police when you need them?
