How do you top a Thandie Newton post?

With a Cate Blanchett post of course.

The Australian actress has come out of hibernation to flaunt her fabulousity.

She was in New York last night as Giorgio Armani welcomed her and the Sydney Theatre Company with a dinner at Armani Ristorante.

She looked so elegant wearing an indigo Armani Privé Spring 2009 one-padded-shouldered dress with a gathered tasselled detail on her hip.

I love the modification, it fits her style so perfectly and proves why she’s the perfect muse for Mr Armani.

The actress is in New York to star in the play “A Streetcar Named Desire” at the BAM Harvey Theater.

Some of you have told me that you’ve got tickets to see the play which runs from 27 November -20 December.
