The Dame showed off a purple look in honor of the late performer.

Helen Mirren made her mark on the red carpet at the White House Correspondents' Dinner on Saturday, sporting a bright purple gown and special tattoo for the evening. 

In a nod to Prince, who died April 21, the actress was shown pointing to a small tattoo on her collarbone as she arrived at the event. 

The mark was the symbol that the artist adopted in 1993 that led to people calling him "The Artist Formerly Known as Prince" until he changed his name back in 2000.
