Helen Mirren certainly thinks a lot of her glam squad - so much so, that she calls them 'Team Ferrari'! On Wednesday, the award-winning actress took to her Instagram account to introduce her talented beauty team to her fans. In the picture, the 72-year-old posed in her dressing gown with her team, who had worked their magic on her hair and make-up. Helen's pixie crop was styled with loose waves, and her large blue eyes were enhanced with a bold outline of black liner, lashings of mascara and a strong brow. A glowy base, sweep of bronzer across the apples of her cheeks and a red matte lipstick completed her look.

Captioning the photo, Helen wrote: "My glam team in Venice, who I named ‘Team Ferrari’ as they were brilliantly quick!" Fans were quick to comment on the photo, with many complimenting her on her glamorous look. "Helen is sooo glam and beautiful inside and out," one wrote, while another said: "Good lord, you look amazing!!" A third added: "I never look like that in my bath robe!!"
The award-winning actress is renowned for her age-defying beauty
Helen, who celebrated her 72nd birthday back in June, recently opened up about ageing in a new interview with Allue magazine, revealing that she gets "really cross" if people treat her like a senior. "If people treat me like the age I am, I get absolutely insulted, really cross. I hate when people give up their seat for me. No, no, no. I don't want your seat," she said.
The BAFTA winner is also renowned for championing a positive body image message, and often speaks out about the need for change when it comes to beauty standards. Last year she credited reality TV star Kim Kardashian for helping to redefine those standards and bring about positive change. Speaking to the Sunday Telegraph, Helen explained that when she grew up, "everything was about women conforming", but that she had noticed a shift, adding that it's "wonderful that you're allowed to have a butt nowadays!"
