Dame Helen Mirren debuted an ultra-stylish pink hairstyle when she arrived at the BAFTAs on Sunday night, but the 'Hitchcock' actress has revealed that her style inspiration came from a surprising source. Yup, the national treasure is a self-confessed America's Next Top Model fan!

We'd never have had Dame Mirren pegged as an America's Next Top Model fan, but it turns out she is just that.

The Oscar nominated actress confessed to The Daily Telegraph on the BAFTAs red carpet that her new look was inspired by Sophie Sumner, who won the 'British Invasion' cycle of the show.

Is it bad that we want to copy Dame Helen Mirren's new hairstyle?

"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."

We love how she managed to colour coordinate her newly-dyed locks with that gorgeous red carpet dress!
