The 69-year-old will be the new U.K. ambassador for the beauty brand

Helen Mirren has been named the new U.K. face of L'Oreal Paris, joining the brand's latest ambassador, Naomi Watts.

The 69-year-old actress, who is set to return to Broadway in The Audience, appears in the beauty brand's campaign in an all-black ensemble with a perfectly tousled 'do. Although Mirren told The Independent that she never felt gorgeous and "was always ok-looking, and I'm keen to stay that way,” we beg to differ, as she always appears on and off the carpet with beauty and grace.

Mirren is among a group of older women in Hollywood who have recently appeared in makeup campaigns, from 53-year-old Tilda Swinton being named the new face of NARS cosmetics to 64-year-old Jessica Lange appearing in Marc Jacobs Beauty ads. These ladies are aging with grace, indeed.
