Helen Mirren has stepped out in one of her boldest looks yet, wearing a black satin turban to a Hollywood event where she was honoured for her charity work. Helen was looking as elegant as ever with her matching black suit and heels, adding a touch of quirkiness with her headpiece, as she accepted her award for her work with the Stuttering Association for the Young. The event, the annual Variety Power of Women luncheon, was packed with some of the most popular women in entertainment and the Dame herself even got up on stage to make a speech about the importance of women supporting each other. “It’s time for the best role model in the White House,” Mirren said to cheers from the overwhelmingly American audience. She said she used to believe such women’s events weren’t necessary and that women should just “barge their way in” to positions of power. “I’ve come to realise this is a fantasy,” she said. “Without an organisation, without a megaphone to make your voice heard, your voice remains feeble. It is ignored. “In the next few weeks we will see a real-life example of this,” she continued, “as women of all ages and all economic situations, all professions, vote.” Over 200 pictures from the luncheon have been added to the photo gallery.

This week, Helen Mirren is in Jerusalem to host the Genesis Prize, known as “the Jewish Nobel”. Her arrival and various sightings have been covered, as was the press conference for the prize, which will be given this year to Itzhak Perlman. During her stay, Helen has been honored with the Jerusalem of Gold Award for Excellence in the Arts and Humanities by Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat. Barkat then took her to visit the City of David, an archaeological site of ancient Jerusalem, and said Mirren “has inspired millions through her artistic craftsmanship and devotion to bettering the world.” The actress also joined British Ambassador to Israel, David Quarrey, at his residence to celebrate Shakespeare. The pair helped launch ‘Mix the Play’, which is part of a global project to mark the 400th anniversary of his death. The brainchild of the British Council in Israel, the initiative allows people to direct a scene from Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream, before sharing it online. Pictures from all mentioned events have been added to the photo gallery. If you’re able to find additional press coverage, please let me know. Edit: Pictures from the Genesis prize ceremony have been added as well.
