Helen Mirren has proved that dopamine dressing is most definitely the newest fashion trend that we all need to try as she stunned at a screening of her new movie 'The Duke' in New York City.

Dopamine dressing is one of the biggest fashion trends of 2022, and at a screening of her film, The Duke, Helen Mirren showed that she is right on-trend.

The actress wore a combination of bright yellow and pink, two of the most popular fashion color trends of 2022. Helen wore a midi-length, collared canary yellow dress with a tie-up belted waist that was perfectly complemented by a bright pink cape that showed off the long sleeves of her dress. She paired this ensemble with matching yellow satin heels that pulled the look together.

The star also had lilac nails and bright chunky earrings and a matching bracelet to add some small but bold details to this fantastic look.

The film Helen was promoting is based on the real-life 1961 theft of the Portrait of the Duke of Wellington. In the film, Helen plays Dorothy Bunton and Jim Broadbent plays Kempton Bunton, her husband.

The British comedy film was scheduled to be released in 2020, but after several delays due to the pandemic, the film wasn't released in the UK until February 25, 2022. Despite the film's various delays, Helen ensured that the screening in Tribeca caught the press' attention with her fantastic wardrobe choices.

At the SAG Awards 2022, Helen Mirren proved headbands are still cool as she wore a pale pink puffed hatband that matched her pink dress that was decorated with delicate pink butterflies.

The headband trend is another popular look with a lot of celebrities, including royalty. The puffed headband is one of Kate Middleton's go-to hair accessories that has been worn to a variety of different engagements in recent years, showing that Helen is quite the trendsetter!
