Cate Blanchett In Givenchy – Harper’s Bazaar Woman Of The Year Awards 2013

Cate Blanchett In Givenchy - Harper's Bazaar Woman Of The Year Awards 2013

Oscar front-runner and the star of Woody Allen’s acclaimed film ‘Blue Jasmine’, Cate Blanchett, who also appears on the cover of the December issue of Harper’s Bazaar, was named International Actress of the Year at the Harper’s Bazaar Woman Of The Year Awards.

The Australian actress looked stunning at the event, which was held at Claridges in London yesterday evening, wearing a Givenchy Spring 2014 walnut-coloured crepe jersey dress with embroidered cuffs which, I will admit, didn’t have much red-carpet appeal on the runway, but the beauty of Cate is that everything she touches turns to red-carpet gold.

Keeping accessories to a bare minimum, she styled her look with nude Givenchy sandals and a gold necklace which cascaded down the open V-back of her dress.

        Yes, she looks so amazing. BDOTW worthy imo.

        • Tess November 6, 2013 at 14:32 #

          Agree, a BDOTW contender for me!

    I love it ! She looks amazing, the dress is beautiful on her and the easy styling works perfectly.

  3. Tracy November 6, 2013 at 11:13 #

    The dress drapes around her body perfectly, hugging in all the right places. Super sleek and elegant.

    This gown is nothing special on the runway, but it looks amazing on Cate. I love her look from H2T.

      Yes to all of this.

  5. Denise November 6, 2013 at 12:33 #

    I love this gown and the colour on her. Thank God it is not another blush dress washing her out. Wouldn’t it be better if the necklace were in the front ?

    • dee November 6, 2013 at 14:37 #

      I agree.

  6. Anne November 6, 2013 at 13:03 #

    I think this was the perfect event to wear this dress. It’s not meant to be a show-stopper for a red carpet with the color, simplicity and fabric of the gown. Instead, it worked wonderfully for this type of evening.

    I love her hair and makeup with the dress and the back is a lovely surprise.

    • Namel November 6, 2013 at 13:49 #

      +1 It couldn’t be more event appropriate.

  7. Laura November 6, 2013 at 15:32 #

    Her makeup is always so beautiful!

    • kane November 6, 2013 at 17:17 #

      I agree. This one is particularly standing out for me. She looks so young and gorgeous. She pulls off the dress amazingly (although for me she has nothing on Idris’s coat).

  8. Prudence November 6, 2013 at 15:51 #

    first time she has looked good in months, however its not great. I would have loved some type of earring or a bolder lip color.

  9. Sharon November 6, 2013 at 15:59 #

    Absolutely gorgeous. BDOTW.

  10. Alina November 6, 2013 at 17:29 #

    LOVE THIS!

  11. Nat39 November 6, 2013 at 18:38 #

    The colour isn’t very inspiring and the v-back is a bit too low, but Cate is wearing this gown beautifully, I love it.

  12. Tatiana November 6, 2013 at 21:44 #

    Gorgeous forma head to toe, she is for me the best dresses at this event. It is simple but very dramatic at the same time. BDOTW- worthy for sure and one of my favorites looks from this year.

  13. Lisa November 6, 2013 at 21:48 #

    Absolutely stunning from the front but the back is jaw dropping, the look is sexy but classy at the same time. Also her face is drop dead gorgeous. Favorite dress of the week for me.

  14. Charlotte November 6, 2013 at 21:50 #

    How can this woman be so perfect and astonishing all the time? My girl-crush deepens

  15. Rebecca Z November 6, 2013 at 23:00 #

    She does looks beautiful, but this is not my favorite recent look from her. Not really loving the bare back and reversed necklace–that is kind of contrived in my opinion. That said…it’s Cate so it can’t be all bad.

  16. Emilia FX November 6, 2013 at 23:14 #

    Cate looks really great in this dress, even if I don’t like the color a lot. Anyway, BDOTW.

  17. Pedro November 7, 2013 at 01:51 #

    Wowza Cate! I’m in totally lust with this dress. It is very demure in the front but totally sexy in the back. Very nice, very nice.

  18. Mena November 7, 2013 at 01:59 #

    Stunning! Would not have thought that colour would suit her complexion but boy am I wrong. Cannot wait for awards season.

  19. Giras November 7, 2013 at 02:02 #

    Finally a look I can root for. Stunning.

  20. rici November 7, 2013 at 02:33 #

    FLAWLESSS!!!!!!!

  21. jas November 7, 2013 at 05:56 #

    she looks very ethereal. she can do no wrong in my eyes. all class.

  22. Sleepless in Chicago November 7, 2013 at 14:36 #

    I love the look except the color. The only other color worse that this would have been powder pink that she has done a couple of times in recent history.

  23. Mary Kate November 7, 2013 at 14:51 #

    By far she is the best dressed this week. Not only because of the dress(which itself is great) but for the way she carries it with such effortless grace. BDOTW and even BDOYW for me.

  24. Ivy November 7, 2013 at 15:10 #

    Beyond obsessed with this look and that necklace. Gorgessity!

  25. EmmaWoodhouse November 7, 2013 at 18:52 #

    The back goes too low for me but I love the front and she is just so elegant!

  26. anonymous as always November 7, 2013 at 20:50 #

    Cate Blanchett you are my style icon!!!

  27. Gracie November 7, 2013 at 20:51 #

    I adore this dress and the styling. It reminds me of a Jean Paul Gaultier black dress she wore to the oscars many years ago.
