We’re kind of obsessed with how gorgeous Gillian Anderson is. The elegant grey lace dress is one thing, but just look at that hair and makeup!

Lupita Nyong’o is amazing as always in her salmon-hued Stella McMartney dress and shoes.

Claire Danes is adorable in a chic Dior dress and gold Christian Louboutin heels.

We couldn’t help but include this photo of 12 Years a Slave stars  Brad Pitt and Chiwetel Ejiofor, because, hey, this is how all men should rock the red carpet. And hello, Brad Pitt’s new hair cut? Only Brad could get away with it!

Helen Mirren’s Blunt Advice To Young Women

We didn’t think we could love Dame Helen Mirren more than we do, but now she has given some brilliantly candid advice to her hypothetical daughter – and we want to give her a high five.

In an interview with the UK’s Daily Mail, Mirren, 67, spoke out about female empowerment and the need for women to speak up for themselves.

“If I’d had children and had a girl, the first words I would have taught her would have been ‘f*** off’ because we weren’t brought up ever to say that to anyone, were we?

“And it’s quite valuable to have the courage and the confidence  to say, ‘No, f*** off, leave me  alone, thank you very much.’ You see, I couldn’t help saying ‘Thank you very much,’ I just couldn’t help myself.”

Bravo! It might be blunt, but Mirren’s words are something we should hear more of.

The actress also spoke about being a female in the film industry, describing what it was like when she started out.

“The 60s were not great, the 70s were really crap; the  60s and 70s were pretty ghastly,  I think.

“And into the 80s, as an actress, you would be the only female on set, apart from the continuity person, who was always a woman, and maybe your own personal wardrobe person. Otherwise it was completely male, and a particular kind of testosteroney male that was quite hard to deal with.

“You had to have a sense of humour, put your head down, you were never going to be one of the boys, if you know what I mean.”

What do you think of Helen Mirren’s advice for women?
