Ladies all over the world do fist pumps when a sixty-some-odd-year-old woman's beauty risk gets the general public's attention. It helps that the lady is actually Dame Helen Mirren, and she was walking on the BAFTA red carpet when said beauty risk rocked the internet: Yup, Mirren had pink hair. According to this interview, UK model Sophie Sumner of America's Next Top Model Cycle 18: British Invasion was Mirren's inspiration. Older women getting inspired by younger women who then get inspired by older women. The circle of life, ladies and gentlemen. Check out a picture of Sumner's version after the jump.
