Back on home turf, Cate Blanchett goes a very long way to redeem herself, following her previous look, by glowing on the red carpet at the 2012 AACTA Awards which were held at the Sydney Opera House in Australia earlier this week.

She wore a look from the Alexander McQueen Spring 2012 collection.

Her glorious gold metallic pleated silk dress was teamed with metallic gold peep-toes and an embellished clutch.

This is the Queen Cate we all know and love.

I hope she continues to reign in this manner from now on.
