Helen Mirren, Miki Nakatani and world’s actresses create an international parade of beauty at the 28th Tokyo International Film Festival

The curtains rose on October 22 for the 28th Tokyo International Film Festival, and Tokyo’s Roppongi Hills burst into an arena of color as guests from all around the world—including Oscar-winning Hollywood actresses and A-list Japanese actresses—dazzled audiences with their gorgeous gowns.
Helen Mirren, who stars in the Special Scrrenings Selection film WOMAN IN GOLD, attended wearing a gorgeous dress replete with sequins and embroidery. You’re Not You star Hilary Swank appeared in a long two-colour gown with delicate frills around the neckline, and together the women cut dignified figures befitting two Oscar winners.
Japanese actress Miki Nakatani, who stars in Competition Section selection FOUJITA, went for a classic, graceful look with a high-neck white dress, while The Inerasable star Yuko Takeuchi wore a Lanvin gown with an elegant asymmetrical one shoulder. To match her long black hair, Ai Hashimoto appeared in a black dress with a more unconventional design by Viktor & Rolf, and was seen smiling as she waved her hand for the fans along the red carpet.
Actress Tsubasa Honda, who appears in Closing screening film TERMINAL, left the audience breathless when she appeared in a white long-sleeved kimono with green obi. Panorama Section selection Something Like Something Like It star Keiko Kitagawa showed off her legs in a black sleeveless mini dress by Versace, with bold yellow line detailing. Girl group Perfume, whose documentary WE ARE Perfume—WORLD TOUR 3rd DOCUMENT will premier at TIFF, presented a united front in chic monotone colors, and reacted happily to the cheers of fans.
From China, India and other parts of Asia, actresses delighted the audience with their excellent style, appearing in beautifully designed dresses and traditional clothing from their countries. In addition to Helen Mirren, Hilary Swank and Miki Nakatani, Japanese narrator of French nature documentary Les Saisons, Fumino Kimura, and Ghost Theater actress Haruka Shimazaki also stood out in elegant white dresses.
The 28th Tokyo International Film Festival runs until October 31, with screenings at the main event space in Roppongi Hills, as well as Shinjuku WALD9, Shinjuku Piccadilly, and TOHO CINEMAS Shinjuku. This year the festival boasts new sections Panorama, Japan Now, and Japanese Classics, in addition to six traditional sections Competition, Special Screenings, Asian Future, World Focus, Japanese Cinema Splash and CROSSCUT ASIA. Together with Allied Events, more than 200 films from around the globe will be screened, along with special appearances and greetings by actors and Q&A events.
