Helen Mirren's weekend outfits: Mostly chest-focused

Filed under: Celebrity

Helen Mirren attended the British Comedy Awards in London on Friday and Ein Herz fuer Kinder (A Heart for Children) in Berlin meaning two (rather chest-focused) red carpet outfits for us to enjoy.



Any by 'enjoy' we mean 'enjoy one of them and then raise an eyebrow at the other'.

The one on the left was the choice for the British Comedy Awards at which Helen presented long-running comedy panel show Have I Got News For You with a lifetime achievement award. It's one of the lesser-worn star print items from the Dolce & Gabbana A/W 2011 collection and involves alternating print and sheer lace panels and a visible built-in bra.

It was a bit much to take in first thing on Saturday morning and it remains so today. "But what of your fabulous sense of style?" we asked, feeling sad. "And why did you select a dress which comes with an old lady bra built in?"

Our psychic confusion must have been strong enough to reach Germany as Saturday night saw Helen in figure hugging satin looking, frankly, amazing.

Which of Dame Helen's outfits do you prefer? Let us know in the comments.
