The 2019 Cannes Film Festival is currently underway, and it's already given us some major style and beauty inspiration.
The annual event in the south of France brings out celebrities who are eager to promote their movies, show off on the famed red carpet, or both. Over the weekend, Helen Mirren made an appearance at the festival sporting a new — and somewhat surprising — hair color: bubblegum pink.
The 73-year-old actress, who's also a brand spokesperson for L’Oréal (which has been one of the festival's sponsors for more than two decades), totally turned heads in her all-pink look. And we are 100% here for this acting legend who proves, once again, that beauty is truly timeless.
Mirren recently upped her status as an icon at the Cannes Film Festival, where she debuted — wait for it — pink hair!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, her new 'do was the work of hairstylist Stephane Lancien. The summery shade matched perfectly with Mirren's stunning rose gold Elie Saab gown, which glittered and glistened on the Cannes red carpet. We especially love the slightly off-the-shoulder cut of the gown and those killer diamond earrings.
Here's a closer look at her dress — can I get one in my size, please?
Mirren is a brand spokesperson for L’Oréal, and at Cannes she was joined by her fellow brand ambassadors — including Amber Heard, Elle Fanning, and Eva Longoria — to promote L’Oréal on the festival's closely watched red carpet. As THR reports, L’Oréal has been a main sponsor of the big event for 22 years.
And clearly whatever she's using and doing is working.
Sadly the playful pink hair didn't last long. Shortly after her red carpet appearance, she was spotted back to her typical silver-slash-blonde hue. But while the color may have washed out, at least we'll always have these incredible images to look back on whenever we need a little motivation to do something ~daring~ and out of the ordinary.
We stan an ageless queen!
“All my life I’ve been looking at 16-year-old girls selling beauty, so I think it’s fabulous that they’re using a 70-year-old woman to sell products to other 60- to 80-year-old women," Mirren said when she signed on with L'Oréal back in 2016.
We could not agree more. Here's to many more years of Mirren's fabulousness gracing our feeds and timelines.
