Helen goes for understated glam

Awards ceremony season is well and truly upon us after the BAFTAs took place this weekend.

Actors and actresses flew in from across the globe to attend the prestigious event in London on Sunday evening - and it wouldn't be an awards show without Dame Helen Mirren.

Films 12 Years a Slave, American Hustle and Gravity each took home two awards from this year's show.

But it was Helen Mirren who took home the biggest accolade.

She was presented with the BAFTA Fellowship award by Prince William, who nicknamed her "Granny" as a nod to her portrayal of his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II in The Queen.

Previous recipients of the award include Charlie Chaplin, Elizabeth Taylor and Judi Dench.

The previous evening Helen attended the BAFTA Nominee's party on New Bond Street.

She went for an understated look, in an embellished mac and black tights, not to draw too much attention to herself - a far cry from her floor length gown at Sunday's BAFTA ceremony.

On Wednesday evening, musicians and celebrities alike will get dolled up once again for The Brit Awards.
