Cate Blanchett In Giorgio Armani – 2011 Sydney Film Festival Opening Night Screening of “Hanna”

Cate Blanchett graced the red carpet this evening in Australia for the Sydney Film Festival opening night screening of “Hanna.”

The red carpet Queen opted for blush double-breasted suit by her favourite designer Giorgio Armani.

Her Fall 2011 suit was paired with different pants to those presented on the runway.

Whilst I prefer the cut and darker shade of the runway pants, wider pants appear to be Cate’s preferred choice as she’s sported this look on the red carpet before.

Metallic pointy pumps and that graceful regal air which I adore completed her look.

    I think this is the first time I don’t really like something Cate is wearing. The colour is almost exactly the same as her skin tone and I don’t think the wide pants or the soes are particularly flattering. Even her hair is a bit off. I was very excited when I saw the tag ‘Cate Blanchett in Giorgio Armani’ but when the picture loaded, I was quite disappointed.

      exactly what i was about to write :S

    • Bárbara June 8, 2011 at 17:05 #

      Believe it or not, I was just about to write that as well!

      • maria June 8, 2011 at 18:03 #

        same here. First time i am really underwhelmed.

        • Emi June 8, 2011 at 21:17 #

          I agree, it’s the first time I really dislike her. The fit of the pants reminds me the pants of Charlot. A big miss, for me.

      I think you speak for many of us. I was disappointed. Not sure long jacket and wide pants work for Cate. My instant reaction was “hmm … the pantsuit lady (Hillary Clinton).” Still like her hair.

  2. Alina June 8, 2011 at 16:54 #

    Well..this is not good.

    • Gaber June 8, 2011 at 17:10 #

      I saw the picture and said almost the EXACT same thing!

  3. Emily June 8, 2011 at 17:02 #

    For me she looks a bit stumpy … and I never thought I would say that about Cate Blanchett!!

    I think it needed some heels and a cigarette pant to take it out of Hilary Clinton territory.

    • Gigi June 8, 2011 at 17:32 #

      SO RIGHT!!! The frumpyness and unfortunate jacket length take her right into Secretary-o-State land. And I hate to say it, but that’s NOT a good thing. Never thought I would see this BDOTY winner look this meh.

    • Jen June 8, 2011 at 18:23 #

      Agree with you, as much as it pains me to say. I think the fit is too big and the pants are too long.

    • Leti June 9, 2011 at 02:25 #

      Hilary Clinton is exactly who came to mind when I saw this! She just looks very dumpy…not good.

    • e June 9, 2011 at 05:55 #

      as soon as i saw this pic i thought of hilary clinton too!!

  4. ullis June 8, 2011 at 17:06 #


    the model looks awesome though!

  5. Tumanas Style Blog June 8, 2011 at 17:09 #

    Cate Blanchett es una mujer muy bella… !!! se ponga lo que se ponga, sigue siendo linda y elegante …. !!!

  6. dee June 8, 2011 at 17:10 #

    This suit doesn’t flatter her shape.

  7. justme June 8, 2011 at 17:12 #

    I feel like this is something Hilary Clinton would wear. Not a good look for Cate.

  8. Kate McCarthy June 8, 2011 at 17:13 #

    No.just no.

  9. vicky June 8, 2011 at 17:13 #

    I guess everyone’s entitled to a day off, this was Cate’s.
    Don’t like anything about this look except the fact that she tried something different.

  10. k.b.s June 8, 2011 at 17:22 #

    no, this is not a good look. Everything looks so………………dated. this is definitely an off day.

  11. red June 8, 2011 at 17:28 #

    Have you guys seen Hanna, some of Cate’s wardrobe in the film was designed by Giorgio Armani.

  12. Rebecca Z June 8, 2011 at 17:35 #

    Not her best effort,but neither was the movie.

  13. deena chauhan June 8, 2011 at 17:35 #

    But FC, her pants are too long! I know this to be a bug-bear of yours; but is Queen Cate exempt from that? I’d have to say no unfortunately

    • Fashion Critic June 8, 2011 at 17:41 #

      My bug bear are when pants are too long that you can’t see the shoes.

      Her shoes are visible on this occasion

    • Fashion Critic June 8, 2011 at 17:41 #

      ps I believe that I did state that I preferred the runway pants

  14. feliciab June 8, 2011 at 17:48 #

    So. Very. Disappointed.

    • bibi June 8, 2011 at 19:29 #

      I can’t stop laffing …..I can’t believe she don’t have any taste!!!!!

  15. Flaneur June 8, 2011 at 17:55 #

    this a lil eerie…i was reading the review of hanna n had a cate blanchett craving..so though of logging in and going through the cate blanchett posts in the archive…n oohh la la the queen is the first post!!

    having said which the pants kind of kill the look for me,,,, :((

    to make up for the disappoinment i was going through her tokyo pics from last year

  16. GusMex June 8, 2011 at 18:24 #

    She look shorter!! maybe the picture was taken from above or…is the fit, i don´t know but i prefered her in something more femenine and regal

  17. mari June 8, 2011 at 18:46 #

    I like it only from the chest up. Nothing more, it seems that this time she borrowed Mary-Kate’s sense of style with the oversized clothes.
    maybe next time.

  18. Lara June 8, 2011 at 18:46 #

    Not a good look at all. I hate the pants, specifically the length and I hate the shoes. So NOT the way to do the androgynous pantsuit look

  19. moja31 June 8, 2011 at 19:12 #

    to be honest, i think this might be the worst i’ve ever seen her look.

  20. Rach June 8, 2011 at 19:23 #

    This does something strange to her proportions – too long torso, boxy cut, too long pants, unfortunate colour? Not sure exactly which is is (or maybe all!) but something just isn’t quite right about this look!

  21. Lee Ann June 8, 2011 at 19:28 #

    I know that he funds her theatre in Australia so she in turns wears his clothes from time to time but if it were me I’d look for a different sponsor especially if he made me wear this outfit.

  22. Kaylie June 8, 2011 at 19:55 #

    I think I could have gotten on board with this look if she had chosen better shoes. These ones are awful!

  23. Tahj June 8, 2011 at 20:05 #

    Not the Cate Blanchett I know and love. I love a suit, but if you’re going to rock a suit, the fit must be perfect. She just doesn’t look like the chic Cate Blanchett we’re used to seeing.

  24. robbie June 8, 2011 at 20:27 #

    not a good look.

  25. Raquel June 8, 2011 at 22:23 #

    Who is this frumpy woman and did she do to the real Cate???

  26. NooG June 9, 2011 at 01:03 #

    Even though I hate, hate, hate this look, I still love you Cate! Lol.

  27. Crystal June 9, 2011 at 02:27 #

    i love Cate but i hate this look. the pants looked like clown pants

  28. serenissima June 9, 2011 at 02:54 #

    Whoa… What? I dont even know what to say about this

  29. KateS June 9, 2011 at 03:03 #

    This cut is way too mature for her, and I hate the proportions. She has such an innately regal, graceful air that she can carry off ridiculous clothing superbly, an ability totally wasted on this boring, conservative suit.

  30. D June 9, 2011 at 09:24 #

    i still love cate. but wrong cut for her. and prefer the runway trousers

  31. Manuel June 9, 2011 at 23:43 #

    Its incredible that this bad suit kinda works because of her regal poise. I love thee Blanchett but the suit is a no-go. The colour is fine though
