Dame Helen Mirren plays The Queen on the big screen and now she’s reigning over the catwalk at Paris Fashion Week with a virtually unrecognisable look.

The 76-year-old actress looked incredible as she stepped onto the runway in the L’Oréal Paris show on Sunday donning a monochrome trouser suit for the iconic fashion event.

But by far the most dramatic transformation was her face with a heavy black eye make-up look coupled with a sleek high top bun.

She completed her look with a pair of black chunky platform heels which she effortlessly strutted down the catwalk in.

Dame Helen was spotted a day ahead of the event attending a fitting for the show wearing an elegant black dress with a red rose print as she headed into the building.

She fought off the chill with a beige raincoat against the autumnal weather.

The actress looked world’s away from her dowdy taxi driver character in her latest upcoming movie, The Duke, where she stars alongside Jim Broadbent.

Speaking about being part of The Duke, she said earlier this year: “The whole story took me by surprise. You would want to take it with a pinch of salt if it wasn’t all true.

“I loved the charm of the script; it was sweet and very endearing. I love the 1960s, it was a more naïve, innocent time.”

The film will be released in February next year, follows the story of a taxi driver, Kempton Bunton who steals Goya’s painting of The Duke Of Wellington.






The show culminated with a group shot including Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Cindy Bruna, Camila Cabello, Amber Heard and a host of models on the catwalk

Other celebs on the runway included Leyna Bloom, Aishwarya Rai, Baptiste Giabiconi, and Isabeli Fontana.
