Cate Blanchett In Valentino – 2013 Dubai International Film Festival Opening Night Gala

Cate Blanchett In Valentino - 2013 Dubai International Film Festival Opening Night Gala

Cate Blanchett attended the Opening Night Gala of the 10th Annual Dubai Film Festival held at the Madinat Jumeriah Complex in Dubai, United Arab Emirates this evening.

What a dramatic way to close the week, with the Queen looking outstanding wearing a Valentino Spring 2014 gown.

Her maroon short sleeved cady gown featuring a column skirt and a cape-style bodice with overlay falling down her back, was styled with a breath-taking Hervé Van der Staeten ancient artisan inspired tiered gold necklace.

This is how a statement necklace enhances the look. Someone please show this to the Duchess.

Gold Christian Louboutin ‘Sylvette’ sandals and a rose-gold watch completed her look.

This was originally on my wish list for Sonam Kapoor.

    “godess” found its meaning!what a woman!

  3. kane December 6, 2013 at 17:37 #

    YES! …and the BDOTW choice is getting yet a little more difficult.

  4. Moxie December 6, 2013 at 17:41 #

    Not a fan. Looks like a burgundy nun’s habit with a clunky gold necklace.

  5. Nat39 December 6, 2013 at 17:41 #

    The autumnal colour, the trendy cape…j’adore, and the necklace is such a perfect dramatic statement – outstanding indeed. Without a doubt, BDOTW worthy.

    WOW!!! This is so perfect that it brought a smile to my face.

    She truly is a goddess.

  8. dee December 6, 2013 at 18:05 #

    She looks regal and elegant. Love the necklace.

  9. Nora December 6, 2013 at 18:29 #

    This is why I love fashion, and why I love Cate. Divine.

  10. Tatiana December 6, 2013 at 18:31 #

    BDOTY worthy in my opinion. She looks so stunning and demanding . The necklace and shoes are perfection with the look and she couldn’t be more elegant.

  11. Lisa December 6, 2013 at 18:36 #

    I’m speechless. This is really gorgeous yet so simple at the same time.

  12. Yeliz December 6, 2013 at 18:52 #

    This is one of the best looks styled with a statement necklace. She looks absolutely stunning.

  13. Javier December 6, 2013 at 18:54 #

    There is no other word to describe how she looks. I remember seeing this dress on your wish list FC (although not Cate), and she did what you tell she added a statement necklace! :)

  14. the ogre December 6, 2013 at 19:14 #

    Wow, just wow! This is how you do a statement necklace, indeed! You gorgeous woman, you.

  15. DorianGray December 6, 2013 at 19:32 #

    That’s why I love Queen Cate, she is like no one else, she’s got her own style and you can recognize it from miles away. Clap Clap.

  16. Diego December 6, 2013 at 19:33 #

    She looks out of this world amazing. BDOTW!

  17. Charlotte December 6, 2013 at 19:41 #

    Perfection indeed. Beautiful, poised and statuesque, she carries this look magnificently and like no one else. One of my favorites of this year for sure.

  18. Serenity December 6, 2013 at 20:09 #

    As always, Cate manages to make a major fashion statement with minimal effort, (seemingly). This looks represents her unique style, yet manages not to look repetitive or same-y. She exudes grace, confidence, and both inner and outer beauty. She’s a fashion MVP!

  19. Renem December 6, 2013 at 20:25 #

    Absolutely perfect!!! This is the Cate i love!

  20. EmmaWoodhouse December 6, 2013 at 23:01 #

    Long live the Queen. She is all kinds of fab. Love her presence and this look.

  21. Ramsay December 6, 2013 at 23:02 #

    And that is absolutely stunning – My BDOTW

  22. Dhppy December 7, 2013 at 00:02 #

    I’m not that in love with the gown but the brilliant styling (love a statement necklace!) and the unwavering Blanchett fierceness win the day.

  23. Milla B. December 7, 2013 at 00:46 #

    She managed to look better than the model. This necklace was a amazing choice.

  24. Christina December 7, 2013 at 02:36 #

    This looks like something Galadriel would wore so it is totally fabulous and dramatic. She is working the hell out of it.

  25. Kate December 7, 2013 at 02:43 #

    Dear lord, this woman is something else. I’m always stunned at how she wears clothes and in my opinion no one comes close. Her only fault is being perfect.

  26. anonymous as always December 7, 2013 at 02:51 #

    I LOVE HER!!! What a lady!

  27. Kathy December 7, 2013 at 02:53 #

    Literally flawless, as is the norm with Queen Cate. That necklace is EVERYTHING.

  28. DM December 7, 2013 at 05:02 #

    Clearly I am in the minority here, but I don’t love this. I would have preferred a necklace that picked up at least a little of the gown’s color. The gown itself feels a little restrictive to me, maybe if a bit of neck/shoulder were showing I would like it more….

  29. Lucy December 7, 2013 at 16:21 #

    I adore this look, it is on point.

  30. DP December 8, 2013 at 20:25 #

    Even if the dress is great, the necklace puts it on another level.

  31. H December 9, 2013 at 13:46 #

    Wow, incredible!
