Cate Blanchett In Armani Privé - 51st New York Film Festival Gala Tribute To Cate Blanchett

The New York Film Festival honoured Cate Blanchett with a gala tribute for her significant artistic contributions to film culture, held at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center in New York City yesterday evening.

The Australian actress wore her second nude Armani Prive dress, but this crinoline-lace frock with a plunging neckline was custom-made.

I really love the dress – it’s nice to see Cate do sexy for a change – but I really wish it was in another colour. I know nude was the colour palette of the Fall 2013 collection, but I feel slightly fatigued by it already.

Perhaps the nude shoes are preventing me from totally loving this look.
