Dame Helen Mirren reminded us precisely why she was named Body of the Year in a recent poll as she joined Jessica Chastain in New York for a special screening of their film The Debt.

The 66-year-old actress chose a sleek scarlet long-sleeved Michael Kors dress with matching lipstick for the event, while her co-star picked a pale blue strapless Dior Couture dress and this season's must-have nude Louboutin courts.

We're fans of Jessica's simple look (although it's the sort of dress which means you can't order red wine for fear of spillage) but you can't beat Mirren when she's on form, plus we love her grin!
