Mirren, 70 — who has racked up numerous awards for her acting — wore what appeared to be a temporary tattoo of the unpronounceable symbol Prince adopted as his name in the 1990s.

She was a guest at the glitzy dinner, which is held annually and attended by journalists, political figures, and celebrities. Mirren appeared at the dinner with her husband Taylor Hackford.

Mirren also wore a bright purple dress that matched her Prince tattoo.
