Helen Mirren's Pink Hair At The BAFTA Awards Is Fun And Fresh

Can we take a minute to talk about the incredible Helen Mirren?

The 67-year-old actress continues to make headlines for taking roles that rarely have her "acting her age," as well as for her age-defying body (she won L.A. Fitness' Body of the Year award in 2011, besting the likes of younger nominees Elle MacPherson and Jennifer Lopez).

Mirren caught our attention again at the 2013 BAFTA Awards on Sunday, where she debuted a cotton-candy pink pixie cut on the red carpet.

And who inspired Mirren's gutsy new do? "America's Next Top Model: British Invasion" winner Sophie Sumner.

"I just thought it would be fun," she told The Independent. "She had pink hair and I thought, 'Oh, that looks really pretty.' So I'm copying her."

While many women are just beginning to embrace their silver hair, Mirren has moved on, showing if there's one rule for aging gracefully -- it's to just have fun.
