Helen Mirren Is More Awesome Than We Ever Dreamed

To hell with aging gracefully — Helen MIrren is aging awesomely. At last night's BAFTAs, the 67-year-old legend rocked the red carpet in candy-floss pink strands. Please let that sink in for a moment. We thought nothing this sexy sexagenarian did could surprise us anymore, but clearly we were mistaken.

Mirren told The Independent that the inspiration for her pretty-in-pink 'do came from none other than America's Next Top Model: British Invasion winner Sophie Sumner. "I just thought it would be fun," she told reporters on the red carpet. "[I saw it on Sophie] and thought, 'Ooh that looks really pretty,' so I'm copying her."

So not only is she hip enough to dye her hair pastel pink, she also freely admits to being an ANTM fan. Helen Mirren is a unicorn, people. It is our life's ambition to look this crazy-hot and be this amazing in our golden years. Don't you ever change, you rad, righteous dame.
