Helen Mirren wants to see more beauty products made for mature women.
The Oscar-winning actress is currently the face of L’Oreal Paris’ Age Perfect range, and while there may be more inclusion and diversity in the fashion industry, the 74-year-old wants there to be more choice for women of her generation when it comes to quality skincare products.
“Certainly, I think more needs to be done in the development of products,” she explained in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar. “Everybody’s entitled to look the best they can, to feel great, to enjoy doing their hair or putting on make-up, or a dress or suit. It should be open and accessible to everyone, and not just a select few who only look this way.”
And she revealed her own empowering personal philosophy which has helped her feel comfortable in her own skin.
“Try to find joy in your life, wherever you can, and be optimistic as far as is possible. Because I think this weird thing called ‘beauty’, which I’m not too sure I altogether agree with that word, has many different forms, and only one form is the outward form of your physicality. There are many other ways of being and feeling beautiful,” Mirren added.
On Sunday, The Queen star walked the catwalk during Paris Fashion Week for L’Oreal’s Le Defile show, alongside fellow L’Oreal Paris brand ambassadors including Camila Cabello, Eva Longoria, Amber Heard, Andie MacDowell, and Doutzen Kroes.
Mirren stunned as she joyfully ran barefoot down the runway while wearing a black and white chiffon Giambattista Valli gown, and she later confessed to Harper’s Bazaar that she was so grateful for the opportunity to take part in the inclusive presentation.
“I’m so happy that I witnessed that, and it’s come in my lifetime,” she smiled.
