Cate Blanchett was back on the red carpet yesterday evening, much to our delight, for the Dubai Film Festival and IWC Schaffhausen Filmmaker Award Gala dinner held at the One and Only Mirage Hotel in Dubai.

Looking fashion forward in her Peter Pilotto Spring 2013 look, she opted not to wear the psychedelic pants worn on the runway, going instead for a more event-appropriate trim black skirt.

The pants weren’t needed as the crewneck beaded and embroidered peplum top with short flutter sleeves sells this look on its own.

A black clutch and sandals with gold beaded details, both by Roger Vivier, plus a watch by the host, IWC, accessorized her look.

Flawless makeup and a simple bun provided the finishing touches.
