Cate Blanchett In Dries van Noten – IWC Launch Of The Portofino Watch Range

Cate Blanchett attended the IWC launch of the Portofino watch range at the SIHH International Fine Watch makers’ exhibition in Geneva, Switzerland yesterday.

The Australian actress opted for a Dries van Noten Spring 2011 ensemble which included a black jacket with satin lapels, a white shirt and white pants.

Whilst I’m always seduced by the allure of gowns, but I do love this masculine look on Cate.

She’s oozing class and sophistication from every pore.

There was no attempt to sex up her look. She wore the look with a confident regal air.

    Cate always does very well in my book. But I expect more from her, so this is good but left wanting more! Mayb a more interesting lip color? I just want that little ‘Cate Twist’ she has on her outfits.

    I like the way Cate Blanchett is so unpredictable in what she wears. She does not follow trends but always looks elegant and up to the minute. Her take on this combination is infinitely better than on the runway, particularly in the way she shows off the wonderful tailoring and fit of the jacket.

    I love it. And, I also agree about the hot pink lipstick. It’s too jarring against her pale skin.
    And, the pants make her look taller because the hem is not puddling at her feet.

    I am always in awe of Cate Blanchett’s style (and acting!). I like that is isn’t trying to be so trendy in her styling. She is the essence of class and elegance.

    I think this is perfect- Cate just does something to every outfit she wears. IMO, this is BDOTW worthy. I love this suit- she looks so classy.

    LOVE IT!!!!!! absolutely gorgeous on her.

    Dries should not be worn buttoned up.

  11. Laura January 19, 2011 at 16:42 #

    I wish the pants weren’t so wide. Don’t get me wrong; I don’t want them skin tight, but with a jacket of that length, I feel the pants needed to be not as wide. I still really like the look, especially the top half of it.

    It’s the lips the colour is putting me off & she really looks in good in this outfit…

  13. Grace January 19, 2011 at 16:24 #

    Really? It’s a little mother-of-the-bride/church luncheon lady for me. I think it’s the pants that don’t do it for me, the jacket is amazingly tailored.

  14. Rebecca January 19, 2011 at 16:02 #

    Essence of chic

  15. Vicky January 19, 2011 at 15:31 #

    I do appreciate the change but to me something’s off. I don’t know if it’s the length of the jacket or the width of the pants but something is bothering me.
    An A for the idea, B- for the execution.

  16. michelle January 19, 2011 at 15:27 #

    im not loving it,and im not sure that particular shade of pink suits her.

  17. fashion-mommy January 19, 2011 at 15:16 #

    Imagine Bianca Jagger wearing this in the 1970s, I don’t think anyone other than Kate can get away with this look now!
    The again…it also reminds me of the Love Boat !!!

    love the lips and hair colour x

  19. Chrissie January 19, 2011 at 14:57 #

    I feel like her makeup looks really odd — she has a gorgeously proportioned face, and yet something just doesn’t look right. Maybe the odd shade of lipstick?

    The outfit is awesome, though. Camilla Belle should take lessons!

  20. Pablo January 19, 2011 at 14:42 #

    We’re so used to her wowing us with every step she takes thst this perfectly flawless look just seems a tad low key. In any case, I love her pink lippie and as you say she’s regal as ever! 🙂

  21. Lils January 19, 2011 at 14:30 #

    A nice refreshing look but no real wow factor

  22. k.b.s January 19, 2011 at 14:25 #

    Love this. What a refreshing change from everyone else. Best Dressed contender – please?

  23. Manuel January 19, 2011 at 14:17 #

    Very 70s glamour going on and me like!

  24. Vidhya January 19, 2011 at 14:04 #

    I feel her lip and hair colour are clashing.. what i do like.. is the length of her pants.. spot on..

    • mm January 19, 2011 at 15:21 #

      I am not love the lip color. I love this look!

  25. Marvel January 19, 2011 at 14:03 #

    Whilst the look is nice, I cant help but feel like she could have blown us away. This just gets a polite smile

    • Alina January 19, 2011 at 15:44 #

      I agree.

      • Ethne Blist January 19, 2011 at 16:14 #

        I only like suits on Tilda Swinton. I am a suite snob on this one.But Cate pulls it off.
