A Rare Style Miss For Helen Mirren In Clashing Colour Blocking

The location: The Los Angeles premiere of movie John Carter.

The star: Helen Mirren

It's not a particularly dreadful look, by any means, but it's still a miss - and the fact that it comes from a usually-stylish source is making us a tad sad.
