Hot or not: Helen Mirren's short, spiky 'do

Helen Mirren continues to wow on the red carpet.

The 65-year-old star flaunted her figure in a tight-fitting purple dress at the Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala this weekend, and she also showed off a trendy new hairstyle: a pixie cut. The look has recently been sported on younger actresses like Emma Watson and Carey Mulligan, but we think Mirren looks radiant and youthful with her new close-cropped layers. She finished off the look with a pair of dangling earrings and a red lip.
