Lady in RED

We finished watching the movie "RED" tonight - a perfectly ridiculously delightful confection of A-list stars playing retired secret agents back in the field, firing weapons and confounding the bad guys.

Helen Mirren was particularly cool.  There is one scene where she wears a white evening gown, having infiltrated a gala, and as she slips outside the ballroom to start kicking ass, she steps out of her high heels and into a pair of combat boots that her confederate has placed next to her.  Glamorous and practical!

I love her dresses on the red carpet.

She often has filmy sleeves on her gowns, which is a nice look that I'll keep in mind for the future.

And she's a fan of the color red!

I'm looking forward to the sequel, RED 2.

Firing the machine gun with a huge diamond ring and red lipsticks does add something to it.

Saw red 2 yesterday and highly recommend. Catherine Zeta Jones and Anthony Hopkins are in along with the first film's cast.
