Cate Blanchett In Armani Privé – Deauville American Film Festival Opening Ceremony

Cate Blanchett In Armani Privé - Deauville American Film Festival Opening Ceremony

Cate Blanchett attended the opening ceremony of the 2013 Deauville American Film Festival in Deauville, France this evening.

The Australian actress glided down the red carpet wearing a nude Armani Privé Fall 2013 lightly embellished lace coat-dress, which has been slightly modified from the runway as the silk skirt is shorter than the coat.

Her soft, elegant look is in total contrast to the edgy fashion forward Christopher Kane frock she wore earlier this week, which many of you didn’t like.

Initially I was craving a pop of colour, but on reflection this may have been a distraction much like that feathered detail the model wore with this look.

It great to see her back wearing Armani. The house where she belongs. A simple updo and satin Armani Privé ankle strap pumps completed her look.

Does the Queen meet with your approval on this occasion, or is the look too one note for you?

    I love it. Cate looks like an angel.

    Those who said she’s wearing tights better go see more pics. She’s not. Her legs are just that white!lol

    Why did she ruin this exquisite dress with the white tights? Why?

  4. ariel August 31, 2013 at 18:21 #

    Awful! She looks like she s all in flour! She just needs a wig style Louis 14th…

    Somehow this look ages her and washes out at the same time. Maybe it just didn’t photograph well, but not liking it, too Virginia Woolf-esque

  6. Parvati August 31, 2013 at 14:41 #

    The dress is beautiful and she always looks so chic, but she looks really washed out.

  7. Jai August 31, 2013 at 09:57 #

    No, don’t like this one bit.

  8. Noemi August 31, 2013 at 08:53 #

    She looks like a beautiful, elegant ghost!

    • KatieKate August 31, 2013 at 15:52 #

      Ditto! 😉

    I love this collection to death. It’s great to see one of the dresses worn by someone who makes it justice. She looks great!

    She looks nice and pretty but I much prefer the longer skirt with the ‘opened up’ lace overlay and brighter lippie on the model, it looks more alive on the runway. Cate kinda looks like a ballet instructor.

    Love her but again I am not liking this look.

    Washes her out completely.

  12. Namel August 31, 2013 at 00:20 #

    This is so beautiful and ethereal! Any color would ruin it. But i would prefer it either without the tights or with the tight but with lighter shoes.

    I think this could have gone to a great revisioning of Edwardian/ArtNouveau with adding a something like a long tassel or pearl station necklace.

  14. dee August 30, 2013 at 23:09 #

    This is just too much of the same color. It washes her out. I wish this dress was a different color like lavender or yellow.

  15. Yeliz August 30, 2013 at 22:17 #

    I don’t need a pop of colour, this look is gorgeous as it is.

    • GGG August 31, 2013 at 18:52 #

      I agree! I love her. Always.

  16. G August 30, 2013 at 22:13 #

    I’m probably the only one but I think that she looks washed out, almost ghostly, and she needs some colour via make-up. The dress itself is stunning but I prefer the runway version, and I don’t like the shoes.

    • Ayishaa August 30, 2013 at 22:37 #

      Am with you. She needed a red lipstick or a colorful pair of earrings.

      • dee September 1, 2013 at 16:46 #

        That definitely would have helped.

    • Prudence August 31, 2013 at 00:38 #

      totally agree. she is the epitome of washed out in this dress. I really hope she stays away from this all nude collection because it will be a consistent washed out look for her. I think if she had worn the fur collar and earrings it would have helped tremendously. This is like her 3rd look in the row that I have deeply disliked, the queen has truly lost her crown.

      • G August 31, 2013 at 07:49 #

        Me too I disliked many of her latest looks, starting with the blush Balenciaga cape-dress. It’s a shame since I usually adore her style.

        • Irina September 6, 2013 at 14:24 #

          Agreed – the look melts down in this washed out version. I love the runway look, with the nude stockings and a color accent.

    • KatieKate August 31, 2013 at 02:18 #

      I’m glad I’m not the only one. I literally just commented almost the exact same words, then read your comment.

      • G August 31, 2013 at 07:47 #

        Don’t worry! 🙂 We obviously had the same impression from this look.

      • G August 31, 2013 at 09:33 #

        I tried to reply you but my comment went lost under moderation. I hope you don’t get it twice! I was just saying, don’t worry if you wrote a similar comment, it may happen and obviously we got the same impression from this look. : )

        • KatieKate August 31, 2013 at 15:51 #

          Thanks! I have thought in the past that someone copied my comment when they said almost the same thing verbatim, but realized that we were just completely like-minded. I guess that happens sometimes, but I just hate for someone to think I was trying to steal their sentiment. Lol! Obviously, great minds really do think alike. 😉

    • Nat August 31, 2013 at 13:41 #

      I agree with you too.

    • Irina September 6, 2013 at 14:22 #

      Completely agree – she looks disturbingly ghostly pale. If only she did not go for the pale stockings and chose the nude ones like on the runway look.

    • Iva October 3, 2013 at 14:42 #

      +2 (or +3)

  17. Rebecca Z August 30, 2013 at 22:09 #

    This is a little sweet and ethereal for me–I like it better in the runway presentation. She looks beautiful, but its a little too angelic with the white stockings, etc.

    • Rebecca Z August 30, 2013 at 22:10 #

      I liked the Christopher Kane much better.

      • KatieKate August 31, 2013 at 02:16 #

        I like the CK much better too. Talk about washing her out–this practically makes her look like a ghost. I usually always love everything Care does/wears, but I realllllly dislike this.

        • KatieKate August 31, 2013 at 02:17 #


    • Irina September 6, 2013 at 14:21 #

      This look did not work for me. The lack of color is disturbing. She looks like a ghost.

  18. Lyo August 30, 2013 at 22:06 #

    Now we’re talking! Beautiful!

  19. Rafael August 30, 2013 at 22:01 #

    I mean, she always looks good, but i think sometimes coments become exaggerated. She looks beautiful. Period
