Dame Helen Mirren graced the premiere of her and Ryan Reynolds’ movie Woman in Gold at the Berlinale Film Festival in Berlin last night and she nearly took a tumble while gliding up the stairs. When Dame Helen Mirren almost falls, she looks like she’s doing a graceful and elegant dance interpretation of a hungover me on a pre-dawn Monday morning trying to find the glasses that knocked off of my bedside table during the night. Everybody creamed through their eyeballs when Jennifer Lawrence fell at the Oscars because they thought she was giving us some Tolstoy melodrama elegance, but Dame Helen did it better. Dame Helen’s fall has elegance, intrigue and booty popping.
This just goes to show you the perils of wearing exquisite Lucite heels when you’re not Shauna Sand. Dame Helen Mirren is a subway-riding queen of perfection, but Shauna Sand would never trip while wearing exquisite heels. If Shauna tripped while walking in the heels that are an extension of her feet, the earth would split in two as soon as she hit the ground.
