Style Evolution - Helen Mirren

A nineteen-year-old Mirren oozed sex appeal in a 1966 theater production of Anthony and Cleopatra. Clad in a tight, thigh-baring white gown, the actress gave audiences a sneak peek of her now-legendary curves.

Mirren hit the bleach and the beach for 1969's Age of Consent, for which she rocked a pale pink bikini and a perfectly bronzed bod.

A twentythree-year-old Mirren played the ingenue role perfectly in this outdoor shot. Love the long blonde fringe!

In 1973's O Lucky Man!, Mirren upped the glamour with a teased-up 'do and plenty of bling.

In 1975 Mirren went the femme fatale route in this slinky black dress and red lips. Shame about the poodle perm.

In another shot from '75, the actress tapped into her Russian roots in this exotic head scarf.

Mirren rocked the hippie-chick look in 1976, donning a peasant skirt, see-through blouse, and (eek!) striped socks worn with peep-toe sandals. Where's the fashion police when you need them?

For the 1978 play Agamemnon, Mirren added some edge with kohl eyeliner, a serpent bracelet, and face paint.

No, your eyes aren't playing tricks on you. That is indeed Dame Helen wearing a ridiculous purple costume (not to mention a perm!) in the 1980 Peter Sellers comedy, The Fiendish Plot of Dr. Fu Manchu.
