Speaking to reporters including The Daily Telegraph on the red carpet, Mirren said: "I just thought it would be fun, you know.

"Honestly, I was watching America's Next Top Model. Did you watch the season where they had the British girls and the American girls? Well, you remember the British girl who won? She had pink hair and I thought, 'Ooh, that looks really pretty'. So I'm copying her, basically."
