On Thursday, February 27, 2020, iconic actress Helen Mirren, 74, was honored at the 70th Berlinale International Film Festival. The actress wore a stunning gown to receive her honor.


Mirren arrived at the German festival wearing a black and silver ballgown. The sparkling outfit was adorned with holographic gems that made it shine.

The gown also featured a metallic silver collar and sleeves. The skirt on the dress flared out over her hips and swirled when she turned.

Mirren’s look for the German festival

The whole gown was decorated with thousands of multi-colored crystals. Mirren added some height by wearing black ankle boots.

She completed her look by carrying a black and silver-colored clutch bag. The actress styled her platinum hair in a straight bob that reached her neck.


Celebrating her latest accolade

“The Queen” star’s acting career spans over five decades. She’s managed to acquire an Oscar, a BAFTA and a Golden Globe Award over the years.

In Germany, Mirren was given the Honorary Golden Bear Award. Earlier in the day, the star celebrated her Honorary Golden Bear and Homage award at a photocall at Germany's Grand Hyatt Hotel.


Helen pays tribute to Radiohead

“The Woman in Gold” actress walked the red carpet in a black Radiohead blazer which was emblazoned with a Union Jack flag and the words “Karma Police.” The words on the blazer are the name of the band's 1997 hit single.


Being booed of stage at the festival

She completed her look with black pants and a black shirt. At the press conference, the star spoke about the first time she attended the festival and how she was booed of stage.

The Golden Globes dress glitch


Last month at the Golden Globe Awards, Mirren appeared to struggle with her red dress. According to “ET Canada,” the star’s side sipper seemed to have gotten stuck.

Meryl Streep assists Mirren

Without any hesitation, fellow actress Meryl Streep swooped in to assist by helping Mirren with the glitch. The pair didn’t win any awards on the night but their moment will last forever on the internet.
