Cate Blanchett In Givenchy – IWC Top Gun Gala Event

Cate Blanchett travelled to Switzerland last week for the ‘IWC Top Gun Gala Event’ at the 22nd SIHH High Jewellery Fair.

Ironically, Cate wore a fairly simple look without a diamond in sight.

Instead she chose a Givenchy Spring 2012 LBD. A tulle halter neckline and large ruffles add details to the classic look.

Cate paired sheer black hose with her dress, perhaps to deal with the chilly Geneva weather.

Rosy cheeks and flipped-out hair finish the look.

    Not loving it, the dress doesn`t look nearly as sexy on Cate as on the model, ending up simply looking like a sligthly strange LBD with an awkward large ruffle detail, could`ve been a tad shorter. I can overlook the weather-appropriate tights as they also complement the sheer detail on the dress but the shoes are absolutely awful, bring down the sexy vibe of the dress entirely. The makeup could`ve been better.

    It’s like everyone’s wearing those Roger Vivier with tights! After seeing them on Keira Knightley they’re popping out everywhere.

    Very nice. Nothing to write home about though.

    I love it from head to toe.

    Love, love, love the entire ensemble! Especially the pantyhose and shoes, they make the dress look more regal and expensive.

    The hair is a little 90’s for my taste.

    I am not loving this. I like it a lot better on the runway.

    Not her best look by any means.

    Newsflash: having worn pantyhose most of my adult life and living in a cold climate–sheer panty hose don’t really address cold weather–opaque tights yes, sheer hose, not so much. I think she looks lovely.

      Of course they don´t address cold weather but they do help in slightly lower temperatures when you are already uncomfortable with bare legs but still not ready for a warmer option.

    Obviously tights-free will always be preferred, but there are definitie exceptions to be made here. My only issue with this look is the hair, something sleeker and chicer, preferably up, and with perhaps a smokier eye would have lifted the look.

    Not my favorite look but she’s still awesome. Long live Queen Cate!

      What happened to Queen Cate?! She doesn’t look very good in this one…her styling with hair, shoes and tights make the look outdated.

    Her legs look short with those shoes and tights.
