Who Wore Lanvin Better? Cate Blanchett or Julia Roberts

Last week Cate Blanchett was promoting SK-II at Park Hyatt Beijing, China.

The Australian actress wore a bordeaux jersey draped Lanvin dress with black pumps and a stack of gold bracelets.

Julia Roberts wore the same dress in a petrol blue colour to the ‘Mange, Prie et Aime’ (Eat, Pray, Love) Paris Premiere on Sunday.

Lanvin snake-skin pumps and Iradj bracelets completed her look.

I love the dress on both women, but I’ll go for Cate as my winner because I love the colour and she allowed the dress to drape naturally whereas Julia added a belt.

    Definitely Cate Blanchett hands down!

    Also I love how Cate rolled up the sleeves and kept her accessories to a bare minimum. For some reason I find Julia’s accessories a little too distracting.

    this dress and the long one is nothing special,and yet many celebs wore it,and it is not particulary fletering on anyone.prefer Cate anytime over Julia,in anything.so Cate it is.

    Queen Cate just can’t be beaten!

    Note to celebs: If Cate’s worn it, leave it!

      Completely – No matter how good on elooks in a dress, you can be safe in thinking Cate will look better in it.

    Cate wins bc she’s the only person I’ve seen in a Lanvin dress that doesn’t look a size too big on her. It fits properly and the colour is great.

    • Anissa September 21, 2010 at 14:47 #

      Amen! That’s how it should fit!

  6. Ela September 21, 2010 at 14:39 #

    Definitely Cate. Everything just looks sleeker on her, the hair, the fit and minimum accesories.

    julia accessorized way better. the color of cate’s dress is awesome but for once julia is really rocking a look so my vote goes to her.

    Cate is the clear winner, but I have to give Julia props for making some effort (finally!) She doesn’t wear this as well as Cate but it is such an improvement over that hideous & matronly black lace thing she wore earlier. Cate also looks much more comfortable and confident which goes a long way towards making a look work for you.

    Julia couldn’t possibly look more ill at ease in her getup; it’s obvious from all her posing and styling this promotional tour that she’s self-conscious about the weight she’s gained around her middle. If she had put her hair up and smiled I might be convinced that she feels as beautiful as she looks, but Cate here is as comfortable as if she were in pyjamas – she wins, hands down.

    Cate definitely. She actually makes that dress look good. It helps that it actually fits her, unlike Julia’s, which is at least a size too big for her.

  11. sheppard September 21, 2010 at 19:48 #

    Cate, absolutely! Cate loves clothes and wears them well. Julia doesn’t really appear to care about fashion (and nothing wrong with that!) and it usually shows when she needs to put on the dog!

    Cate wins this for me. Julia looks dowdy. Not sure if the size is too big for her or if it’s how she wore the sleeves right down to her wrists or if her body is not svelte enough to carry the dress.

    Fc, its not even a competition. Foret the accessories.. no one can come even close to how Cate carries herself.. and the colour of her dress is so gorgeous

  14. GB September 22, 2010 at 21:19 #

    Does Cate work with a stylist?

  15. Ally September 22, 2010 at 23:19 #

    It doesn’t even seem fair to do a “Who Wore it Better” against Cate. IMO she would win every time.

  16. Lucy September 24, 2010 at 09:31 #

    Cate is a goddess. I love her style. She’s a Fashion Queen. She’s stunning with the red dress. The most classy actress of the world !

    • Jez July 9, 2011 at 18:34 #

      I don’t know about the classy comment. Mia Wasikowska might give Cate a run for her money.

  17. Jez July 13, 2011 at 14:02 #

    This shows that Cate Blanchette is the fashion Giant of Hollywood.

    (Not literally a fashion Giant, unfortunately)

    Anuone else agree?

  18. Rich January 13, 2012 at 14:19 #

    There’s no point in this fashion face off when the Fashion Giant known as Cate Blanchette inevitably swats her competition as if they were bugs.

    In other words, her challengers show up, Cate laughs and brushes them aside with her foot. End Of
