Ahead of the 2019 Oscars on Sunday, February 24, Helen Mirren proved she’s an ageless beauty by giving fans a glimpse of what it takes to get all dolled up for the prestigious awards show. Documenting the night on social media, the 73-year-old first shared an extremely relatable and funny pic of her makeup-free face and dripping wet hair.
“Very before … Richard and Joe and Lee work their magic — what did you think? It all came naturally?” the bathrobe-clad actress quipped in her Instagram caption. A little while after, Helen shared a photo of the results as she posed arm-in-arm with her glam squad looking more beautiful than ever. “And after with a great team, aided and abetted by Harry Winston’s gobsmacking gorgeousness,” she wrote. Take a look at Helen’s makeup-free Instagram post below!
Fans were blown away by how stunning the Prime Suspect looked for the 91st annual Academy Awards. “Just the icing on top of an already beautiful cupcake. Stunning from inside out,” one fan wrote in the comments section of her second Oscars post. “Lovely — great to have a team that has your back. You looked great either way, but Oscar Night — what fun. Pink is your color,” gushed another.
Helen continued to document the rest of her night on social media. After making her 2019 Oscars red carpet debut, she snapped a picture of herself standing backstage before the awards show began. “Waiting to go on top of the show. Breath in, head up, smile! You know the drill,” Helen captioned the pic. And prior to stepping out onstage and presenting the Best Documentary Feature honor, the award-winning star shared a sweet photo of herself with the studly Jason Momoa. “Backstage oh Lord lucky me,” she joked.
As they headed out onstage, Helen cracked jokes while the hunky Aquaman star chimed in. “Jason and I didn’t coordinate our outfits tonight,” she said as the crowd laughed. “This is purely accidental. But, you know, it just goes to show, doesn’t it, that these days, a Hawaiian god and a very mature English woman can actually wear the same color. We can both wear pink!”
Besides getting to announce the winner for a category alongside Jason, the presenting pair started quite a conversation when fans began noticing their amazing chemistry. “100 percent will watch a rom-com with Helen Mirren and Jason Momoa,” one user wrote on Twitter. “I demand a Helen Mirren and Jason Momoa superhero team-up movie now!” said another.
Even though Helen wasn’t nominated for any category, in our opinions, she won the award for best Oscars coverage of the night!
