Best Dressed Of The Week, Blog
Teyonah Parris in The Hellers – Fresh new face and gorgeous style!
I loved her also, sad to see her with such a low percentage!
1. The Duchess of Cambridge
2. Olga Kurylenko
3. Nina Dobrev
4. Natalie Dormer
5. Cate Blanchett in Alexander McQueen
As for the men, I can’t decide, just can’t.
I know Cate is going to win, but it looks like a maternity outfit to me.
My favorite was Pace Wu in Elie Saab, followed by Helen Mirren in Jenny Packham.
I know… even more in that little thumbnail now. It’s really doing the opposite of growing on me.
If making a woman look like she is in her 3rd trimester isn’t a poor taste and faux pas than I don’t know what is, and that applique is horrendous, this is really not a very tasteful piece (and don’t even get me started on those shoes – the supposedly matchy but slightly off the shade, toe-squishing – an awful choice).
Overall I didn’t think it was a very bad look, but not that great or magnificent to cause this much praise and admiration either, a bit out of proportions in my opinion, a glorified fashion faux pas, as far as I’m concerned.
I had a tough time choosing between Cate in McQueen and RHW in Isabel Marant; both wonderful for their respective event/day. Had Naya’s kiss-blowing on the RC not been burned in my brain, I would have had an even harder time. Strong week as a whole!
Daisy in Dolce just awful! These looks are so underwhelming!
Cate Blanchett in Balenciaga.Edition. My runner-up is Ruth Wilson in Christian Dior and my best dressed man is Ewan McGregor.
I’m going on vacation tomorrow for almost 4 weeks. I will miss this place! I hope I’ll be able to check the site sometimes.
Until late August Catherine and RCFA readers!
wow…that is a long time, lucky you…have fun…I will be here when you return x
Thank you..I already can’t wait to be back xx
Already can’t wait to be back?? I would kill for a vacay, more less a four week one! I hope you’re going someplace amazing!
Haha. Well I love this site, but you’re right, I’ll enjoy my vacation first. I’m actually going to three places, the first one will be the best
Yes, as amazing as a vacation would be, I must concur, I would undoubtedly suffer some pretty severe withdrawal were I unable to, at least, check in with RCFA!!!
Catherine, can we make Cate “hors concurs ” ? She is unbeatable anyway. It is not even fair for the others. She reigns magnificently.
lol..she’s always unbeatable
1. Cate in Balenciaga.
2. Cate in McQueen.
4. Ruth Wilson.
5. Elizabeth Olsen.
And all the guys looks good (Well, I’m not too fond on Ashton’s), but I voted for Ewan.
Have a great weekend, FC (And the readers too)
And you as well.
Loved Cate Blanchett in clean minimalist Alexander McQueen, certainly not as surprising as her bizarre Balenciaga ensemble but she actually looked good – a strong, sexy, modern, confident woman (not a mom with moths on her skirt and imaginary pregnancy) and Ruth Wilson for rocking that ‘difficult’ not typically pretty look with great styling and presence, making it such a cool unexpected look.
…and my vote went to Ruth.
It’s nice that FC (I mean CK!) put Cate in Balenciaga right next to Ruth in Dior. These are the two “difficult” outfits of the week and, for me at least, there is no contest between them.
The Balenciaga was interesting at first glance but the more I see it, the LESS I like it. It manages to be odd without being the least bit sharp or even “edgy.” It is quite unflattering to the female figure from all angles. If you are the mother-of-the-bride at a twee wedding and are also 8 months pregnant, it might be the perfect choice. Otherwise, no.
The Dior, OTOH, looks fresh and chic and Ruth’s styling perks it up. The more I see it, the MORE I like it.
I therefore voted for Ruth Wilson, with Teyonah Parris in the Hellers as a close second.
Among the men this week my easy favorite was Prince George of Cambridge in his little white blanket. Since he is not on the poll, I’ll vote for Armie Hammer in Ralph Lauren, with Ewan McGregor runner-up.
Why are Elizabeth Olsen and Nina Dobrev on there again? Weren’t they last weeks contenders?
Anyway, I voted for Ruth Wilson. As much as I loved Cate in Balenciaga, something about that Dior look I can’t get past. Ruth looks really amazing!
Musn’t question the poll maker.
“Weren’t they last weeks contenders?”
No. You’re probably thinking of the Best-at-Comic-Con poll, which was early this week. They were the top vote-getters from that event, which is undoubtedly why they got a place in the BDOTW lineup.
Cate in McQueen and Armie in Gucci. Although, there were quite a few worthy competitors this week. I also love Ruth’s Dior the more I look at it. I have often found that Raf’s designs are somewhat of an acquired taste. Pace in Elie Saab was magical as well, and Helen in red at Red2 was brilliant. Unfortunately, Cate in Balenciaga appealed to me straight away, but began to wan, especially in comparison with her black and white beauty. Seems to have had quite the opposite effect of Ruth’s Dior-interestingly enough.
Great week of coverage, as always, FC. Many moons until Monday. Have a restful weekend.
thanks, you too
Cate Blanchett in Balenciaga.Edition and Armie Hammer in Gucci.
Daisy lowe or pace wu… I seriously cannot decide ><;; daisy's dress just looks so fun and exciting. Pace wu's is so glamorous and chic. I loved the colors on both!
My faves are next to each other – Naya Rivera and Elizabeth Olsen on the top row, Teyonah Parris and Helen Mirren on the bottom row. Voted for Teyonah – interesting, styled perfectly, flattering, and accented with that dazzling smile.
I voted for Helen as I know Cate would get most votes.
Teyonah Parris and Cate in McQueen were tied for me.
are you guys high? cate blanchett’s outfit it awful.
