We all know Tabatha Coffey, Bravo’s sharp-tongued Aussie style pro, from her newest show, Tabatha Takes Over, which is in its fifth season! And now, she’s bringing her talents online, joining us at PEOPLE StyleWatch each week to dish on some of the bestand worst – celebrity looks of the week. Keep in mind the opinions below belong solely to the stylist … though she’s probably saying what lots of you are thinking, anyway!

Today, she discusses Dame Helen Mirren, who wore a head-turning Lindka Cierach navy lace dress at the 2013 Laurence Olivier Awards in London last week.

Helen is living elegance, full stop, end of story! I want to grow up and be her — elegant, sophisticated, poised, talented, and so age appropriately fabulous. It’s as if the red carpet was laid down to showcase her perfect navy dress and porcelain skin. She knows what looks good on her and this dress delivers.

I’m a sucker for expertly-executed detail and surprise elements in clothing. The detail in this gown is as gripping as a Hitchcock thriller. The two tones of navy created from the different textured fabrics are intriguing. I love the subtle play of light on the sequins and the lace detail through the top and the length of the sleeves. The asymmetrical slip of flowing fabric gives this a soft, modern feel. Where many would stop Helen keeps going.

Her perfectly coiffed natural hair and porcelain skin are stunning. She is timeless. Nothing Psycho here. Love this look. Love Helen.
