Cate Blanchett In Prabal Gurung – Beauty in Wonderland

Cate Blanchett In Prabal Gurung - Beauty in Wonderland

Following her portrait session earlier in the day, Cate Blanchett attended the Beauty in Wonderland exhibition in Milan, Italy alongside Blake Lively.

The Australian actress wore a fanciful look from Prabal Gurung’s Resort 2014 collection.

Her tri-colour red-black-and-white drop-waist frock with an embroidered degrade ostrich-feather skirt was styled with safe black Roger Vivier peep-toes, glossy lips, a simple updo and silver jewels.

After her conservative look earlier in the day, it was refreshing to see her having more fun with fashion for this evening event.

    I love it! So different and chic

  2. Iva September 20, 2013 at 12:45 #

    I love the dress – but not on Cate.
    And those shoes are definitely wrong for this dress.

    • Lee ann September 20, 2013 at 13:53 #

      shoes are definately wrong -needed really elegant strappy sandals

    I can’t be objective about this look because I don’t like feathered dresses. I can accept them only in very small doses and this is not the case. This is an unfortunate look and it gets worse by shoes and hair. No from me.

    I love this dress and think the drop waist is always so flattering on Cate with her long, slim torso. But, I wish the sass of the dress was carried down to the shoes.

      ITA.

    I adore this look from the ankles up, the red is gorgeous on her. The shoes aren’t working for me.

    The skirt looks quite cheap and customy on Cate, don’t know why because it looks great on the model. A pair of maracas would have compeleted this look IMO.

    • Mery September 20, 2013 at 13:25 #

      Sorry, *costumy

      • Christine September 20, 2013 at 13:26 #

        Not liking this on her , sadly.

  7. SleeplessinChicago September 20, 2013 at 13:23 #

    I do not like the look, particularly on Cate Blanchett. Pairing up with already border-line gaudy get up with pedestrian balck shoes completely ruined the look. The look was more impish on the model, with the fancy polka dot shoes.

  8. kane September 20, 2013 at 13:36 #

    Fun dress! But I find it too quirky and young for Cate. And the shoes… the less said the better.

  9. AnnaLee September 20, 2013 at 13:40 #

    I LOVE this dress on her! yes, the shoes are quit boring but it’s really refreshing and the colours look great on her. Thumbs up!

    • Rashmi September 21, 2013 at 11:25 #

      Yes, this dress is so refreshing and fun on Cate ! Agree bout the boring shoes, but apart from that its a great look!

  10. Valissa September 20, 2013 at 13:54 #

    I really don’t like this. I know Cate likes to take risks but there’s a difference between risky and just plain ugly. This dress is just ugly to me. And the shoes do not work with the overall look.
    I much prefer her conservative Gucci look from earlier that day.

  11. EmmaWoodhouse September 20, 2013 at 14:17 #

    I think this is really cute and fun on her, while still sophisticated. Shoes and hair could have been improved, but overall I quite like the look!

      +2 Playful and fun

    • KatieKate September 22, 2013 at 08:11 #

      +3. How does she do it? She can masterfully carry such a broad variety of looks.

  12. dee September 20, 2013 at 14:27 #

    This looks to bottom heavy with all the feathers. I don’t like this.

  13. Carol September 20, 2013 at 14:39 #

    Hate the bottom of the dress..Lately I can’t find any look on Cate that I truly like

  14. Derro September 20, 2013 at 15:45 #

    J’ADORE.

  15. Petra September 20, 2013 at 16:17 #

    I adore the dress and how Cate wears it as well, but the shoes ruin the outfit altogether sadly.

  16. amanda September 20, 2013 at 17:04 #

    Stunning as always! What a great dress and it’s beautiful on Cate…she looks happy!

  17. Nat39 September 20, 2013 at 17:22 #

    The dress is way too twee and cheesy on her, the shoes are dull, this isn’t working well for her at all.

  18. Prudence September 20, 2013 at 17:26 #

    she has completely lost her mojo.

  19. Larissa September 20, 2013 at 18:01 #

    I don’t think that the shoes work well with the dress, black strapless sandals would have been so much better.

  20. Pablo September 20, 2013 at 21:05 #

    Terrible terrible shoes. Such a shame. Really happy for Prabal though! He must be thrilled!

  21. Hannah September 20, 2013 at 22:06 #

    She looks gorgeous from head to toe. Truly stunning and refreshing.

  22. Lisa September 20, 2013 at 22:49 #

    The dress is very pretty in fun sort of way and even it can look a little silly, she is working the hell out of it. BDOTW for me, well after her amazing Givenchy dress.

  23. Sarah September 20, 2013 at 22:53 #

    I completely love this. It is very fresh, fun, flirty and departure from all those more formal looks she has been wearing. Also, the shoes kind of work with the dress, even though I would have prefer other ones. But overall she looks beautiful in this.

  24. Fiona-Brasil September 20, 2013 at 23:48 #

    Awful dress, awful styling…Who did this to you Cate?

  25. Aitana September 21, 2013 at 01:06 #

    Everything about this look is perfect. But most important she looks out of this world pretty.

  26. Shiva September 21, 2013 at 12:35 #

    The little voice in my head’s been going- ‘There’s an overexposure of Cate- and her natural effortless sassy genius’s been dipping and she seems tired and ‘effortful’ increasingly with every one of these frequent appearances, and that somewhere, something’s missing’
    and I’ve been telling it to shut up and that it used to,till not very long ago, constantly crave for a Cate sighting and was mighty excited when the ‘Blue Jasmine’ started growing -clapping hands in glee for the coming Awards season.
    (Little voice:THOSE SHOESSSS!!!!)

    • Shiva September 21, 2013 at 12:36 #

      *I meant to write ‘the buzz aound Blue Jasmine’

  27. Reez September 22, 2013 at 17:53 #

    too princessy for the queen of fashion!

  28. Aline September 23, 2013 at 04:42 #

    To start with, this is a pretty awful dress, it wouldn’t have looked good in anyone. But paired with those shoes it gets even worse.
