Helen Mirren looked fantastically glamorous in a crimson satin Donna Karan jacket and skirt ensemble teamed with diamond and ruby Chopard jewellery, as she arrived at the première of her new film The Debt.
The elegant 66-year-old actress was joined by fellow actor Colin Firth and his wife Livia Giuggioli, who was looking stunning, as usual, in a simple black dress with a wide leather belt. Helen’s co-star, Jessica Chastain dazzled in a gold-leaf inspired dress.
The Debt is an espionage thriller set in two different eras. Dame Helen plays a veteran Mossad agent in 1997, who is looking back on a 1966 mission – with her younger self depicted by up-and-coming Jessica.
Speaking earlier this week, Helen had nothing but praise for the young actress: “I think in terms of this film I was incredibly lucky that I had the great, the wonderful talent of Jessica Chastain."
Jessica is hot property in Hollywood at the moment, starring in box-office hits The Tree of Life and The Help. Now Helen Mirren’s a fan there seems to be no stopping her!
The Debt hits cinemas on 30 September.
