Dame Helen Mirren - Helen Mirren debuts pink hair at BAFTAs

Dame Helen Mirren debuted pink hair at the EE BAFTA Awards last night (10.02.13).

The 67-year-old actress turned heads with the shocking style transformation as she arrived at the ceremony at London's Royal Opera House in floor length off-white Nicholas Oakwell gown with blonde hair dyed pink.

Explaining her style choice, she said: ''I just thought it would be fun to dye my hair pink. I mean, honestly, I was watching 'America's Next Top Model' and the season where there were the British girls.

''Well, the British girl who won, she had pink hair, and I thought: 'That looks really pretty.' So I'm copying her, basically.''

Helen also matched her nails with light pink polish and her lipstick for the event.

The actress also said she'd enjoyed having wild hair so much, she could carry on swapping it for even more colours in the future.

She told Absolute Radio: ''I'm doing a play and I wear a wig, so I can go any colour I like. So watch this space. It's going to be... I think green's going to be next.''

Pink hair has been popular with celebrities in recent years, with starts including Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Dianna Agron and Sarah Harding all sporting colourful hairstyles.
