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?
