Helen Mirren attended a Manhattan screening of her movie, The Debt, wearing a chic look to copy if you're about to attend your son or daughter's wedding.
Mother of the bride and mother of the groom dresses are sometimes difficult to choose, but Helen's look is one that can't go wrong. Her long-sleeved red wrap dress was flattering with a shallow neckline and knee-length hem. Gathered details at the shoulder and waist added shape to the garment and provided an opportunity to use sparkling brooches for a touch of class.
She accessorized with a pair of silver sandals and sheer hose, which you may want to do without unless they're one of your wardrobe's staples. A French manicure made her nails look sophisticated and a smooth blowout with side-swept waves looked soft and chic. Bold eyeliner defined her eyes and a red lipstick perfectly complemented the crimson ensemble.
When looking for mother of the bride or groom dresses, choose a flattering shape in a color that goes well with your skin tone. Wrapped dresses are always a safe bet, and sparkly accessories will add a hint of glamor.
