Helen Mirren is one dame who knows how to age gracefully. The actress has attended numerous red carpet events throughout her 50 years in the business, so we think it’s safe to say she knows exactly what works for her.

But, even at the age of 71, it appears Helen still knows how to break out of the mold. The actress decided to surprise everyone with an edgy touch at the premiere of her latest flick “Collateral Beauty.”

The Academy Award winner wore a stunning red wool and lace gown from the Jacques Azagury Fall 2016 Collection that featured laced long sleeves. She channeled her inner rocker with a pair of suede and leather ankle boots.

The booties were the perfect surprise finish to her elegant outfit. She also toted a silver clutch from Moroccan-born fashion designer Jacques Azagury.
It seems that Helen, who usually goes for more classic attire, likes to surprise her fans with bold choices every so often. Just like the stripper shoes that she donned for the “Red 2” premiere.
