Helen Mirren may be pushing seventy (she’s turning 68 this month), but she can definitely still work a pair of sky-high heels as well as any other party-going twenty-something. This much we can say after seeing the multiawarded actress sport a pair of clear stripper sandals (with mega platforms) to the premiere of her latest movie, RED 2, yesterday evening. She even gladly showed her shoes to the press.

Even we were left speechless for a moment when we saw her sandals. They remind us of Courtney Stodden, though Helen certainly made the pair look classier than usual.
It just goes to show that you can be sassy and flirty at any age. If you were 68, would you go frolicking in naughty stripper heels a la Helen?
At the moment, we don’t know where she got her platform sandals, but they look a lot like a pair from Pleaser. We found a few styles that actually look very similar if you’re in the mood to try them out.
Pleaser Sky-301 Platform Sandals, $44 to $57
Pleaser Treasure Chest 701 Platform Slides, $55 to $66
If you want to stay safe or prefer a sleeker look, pick a pair with thinner platforms. Here’s an option from Pleaser that’ll do the trick.
