    Helen Mirren Wore Prince Body Art To White House Correspondents Dinner

    The decorated English actress showed up at the Washington, D.C., gathering with what appeared to be a tattoo of the symbol Prince used as his name.

    Actress Helen Mirren showed up to the White House Correspondents' Dinner Saturday night in Washington, D.C., wearing something very special: A tribute to Prince.

    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.

    Prince died on April 21 at the age of 57. His death was mourned by millions of fans across the world.
