Sunday Best: Helen Mirren looks party perfect

And here we have the great Dame Helen Mirren, who has apparently tossed a little cardigan over a cocktail dress and headed off to hit a red carpet, as you do. (She’s promoting “The Hundred-Foot Journey,” currently in theaters.) What I love about this outfit is how it defies expectations — that skirt, all lace and petticoats and retro frippery, would seem to better suit a very young wearer, and on someone else that colorless cardigan just might border on blah. And yet she looks splendid. Of course, when you are Helen Mirren, you can wear whatever you want, and then some.
