Cate Blanchett In Armani Privé Couture – 2014 Golden Globe Awards

Cate Blanchett In Armani Privé Couture - 2014 Golden Globe Awards

Cate Blanchett turned up the drama at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California on Sunday night (January 12).

The ‘Blue Jasmine’ star and best actress winner was the epitome of sultry sophistication in a black, sheer-effect Armani Privé Fall 2013 Couture tulle and lace gown that had the quality of being both darkly glamorous and delicately fragile.

The back of this decadent confection, which featured an ever-so-artful and provocative plunge, may have even captivated me more than the front view.

She styled the look with Jimmy Choo ‘Esam’ pumps, but it was her statement Chopard diamond earrings that were the attention-grabbing stunners that really sparkled against the dress.

A side-parted, tucked-under faux bob and magenta-tinted red lip were a modern spin on the old Hollywood beauty classics.

Were you as taken by queen Cate as I?

    I am not a fan of the sheer black lace trend, but Cate makes it work.

    Oh my queen 🙂

  4. Lizzie January 15, 2014 at 17:47 #

    She is giving modern-old-Hollywood glamour. I just wish she had used the feathers around her neck, it make the dress even better.

    Cate Blanchett is just so elegant and regal, and this gown is absolutely breathtaking. Those Chopard earrings are so beautiful as well. She is such a timeless beauty and an incredible actress who exudes glamour and sophistication every time she hits the red carpet!

    I am so in love with this look! Every time she appeared on camera with the perfect hair, makeup and earrings was a treat. All hail the Queen!!

  7. Mirna January 13, 2014 at 19:30 #

    This is how movie star dress herself. Everything is perfect but more importantly she carries it well.

    I was breathless. Sheer joy!

    Beautiful. Cate looked like a princess in that dress.

  12. dan oliver January 13, 2014 at 15:34 #

    My best dressed of the night it was dramatic a little edgy but sophisticated love it.

  14. Carrie January 13, 2014 at 14:55 #

    Divine! I love how much she understands and loves fashion.

  15. from-chitown January 13, 2014 at 14:23 #

    She looks fabulous. She looked like a Queen on tv. MY very tiny quibble – i am not too crazy about her hair, but it does not take away much from this magnificent look.

  16. Regina January 13, 2014 at 14:06 #

    This is so beautiful it hurts.

    This look was the only one to make my jaw DROP. Magnificent.

  18. dee January 13, 2014 at 13:52 #

    I think this is a stunning choice for the Golden Globes. She looks divine. Love the back of the dress. I think she is saving a show-stopper for the Oscars.

  19. Rouel January 13, 2014 at 13:15 #

    She looks so graceful!!!

  20. Sasha January 13, 2014 at 13:14 #

    Wow, Cate, you surpass yourself. I’m totally in love with this look.

  21. Charlotte January 13, 2014 at 13:10 #

    Perfection incarnate. It maybe black but it is the most interesting dress of the night.

  22. Tatiana January 13, 2014 at 13:08 #

    BDOTY. My favorite of the night by a long mile. The dress is exquisite and so delicate, and of course she styled to perfection. The hair is gorgeous as it is the make up. Just stunningly beautiful.

  23. Christine January 13, 2014 at 11:02 #

    This look is very beautiful!! Love this on her!!! Queen Cate looks better than ever.

  24. Sanya January 13, 2014 at 10:32 #

    I think she looked flawless: the hair was perfect, make up was beautiful and the dress suited her perfectly. However, I was disappointed that she went for a black, I expected something more imaginative for her side.

    Plus, her look was like a copy of Nicole Kidman in Oscar de la Renta from last year:

  25. Yeliz January 13, 2014 at 10:31 #

    She did look stunning and I love the back of this divine gown, but I expected more from her.

  26. Pedro January 13, 2014 at 10:31 #

    The first BDOTY!

    Queen Cate looks perfect from h-2-t

  27. CreoleLady January 13, 2014 at 10:27 #

    Glad to see her back in Armani. The back really is quite something else.

  28. bijuk January 13, 2014 at 10:14 #

    she’s my best dressed for the night. Hail to Queen Cate!

  29. Iva January 13, 2014 at 09:31 #

    Simply gorgeous!

  30. Fiona - Perth January 13, 2014 at 08:04 #

    Stunning – on camera the dress twinkled so beautifully too. I agree FC, the earrings were amazing. The whole look was regal and a cut above everyone else at the event, everything fit to perfection, gorgeous.

    • chryssa January 13, 2014 at 19:15 #

      a cut above!well said!

  31. Ky • January 13, 2014 at 06:05 #

    I am astounded by this. I absolutely adore it. She looked incredible.

  32. yesferdinand January 13, 2014 at 05:40 #

    Stunning, dramatic, sexy without saying too much. The back is beyond amazing.

  33. Valissa January 13, 2014 at 05:14 #

    This is so incredibly stunning and the best dressed of the night! I love the dress, hair, makeup…everything is on point…it made me gasp when I first saw it!
    Cate just nails it every single time 😀

  34. Aline January 13, 2014 at 05:10 #

    I love this look so. incredibly. much! It’s right there with Lupita’s for my favorite of the night. It just pretty much says stunning flawless elegance at its best. I love the hair, I love the earrings and I love how she carries this exquisite gown from the amazing collection that is Armani’s Fall 2013 couture.

    Fashion-wise, I don’t actually hold Cate in such a high standard as the next person and that’s perhaps the reason her choice didn’t let me down one bit. Now, funnily enough, I have 2 Cate looks on my BDOTY list. I hope the numbers only add up in the course of the award season xD

    • DM January 13, 2014 at 08:29 #

      Totally agree with all points by Aline.

  35. Rebecca Z January 13, 2014 at 05:06 #

    It is pretty and elegant and delicate–but disappointing somehow for me. Not daring or particularly interesting. Just okay.

  36. Lee January 13, 2014 at 05:04 #

    Perfection! Pure Elegance at its core. Real movie star. Stunning. Goddess. Fashion muse.

    • Serenity January 13, 2014 at 05:14 #


  37. julyol1972 January 13, 2014 at 04:42 #

    And let me please say that that the back of that gown had no illusion netting – that was all skin, baby! She looked absolutely gorgeous!

    • Serenity January 13, 2014 at 05:14 #

      That’s right! Queen Cate can pull it off with aplomb! This was my best dressed, hands down! I can’t imagine what ‘more’ it is that people are wanting…this is perfection personified. It’s romantic, yet sexy, yet dramatic, yet semure, yet mysterious….all wrapped into one big beautiful package!!! This blows anything else she has worn for this movie’s promotion out of the water, IMO.

  38. Hannah January 13, 2014 at 04:37 #

    She is perfection personified! I cannot wait for the rest of this award season tour, because this is divine, especially the back.

  39. Nat39 January 13, 2014 at 04:31 #

    I don’t know what I expected but that’s not it. While it’s a beautiful look, pretty, delicate, glamorous, I was hoping to be knocked off my feet, didn’t happen. I don’t think she managed to top her amazing Prabal Gurung look from earlier but certainly one of the best of the night.

  40. jessicamarantelli January 13, 2014 at 04:29 #

    Queen Cate is back on the big stage red carpet and the fashion world thanks her. I am in love with this look. Best dressed easily. The hair was stunning and her makeup and jewellery were perfect for the gown. Looked even better on TV and youve gotta love her acceptance speach..joking about the wrapup music.
    I bow down to the Queen as we all await the next awards show.

  41. Alina January 13, 2014 at 04:25 #

    I knew it, I knew she would wear Armani!
    Even if this is romantic, feminine and really flawless, I was expecting something more from her.

  42. Alex January 13, 2014 at 04:25 #

    Best dressed. Hands down!

  43. Prudence January 13, 2014 at 04:24 #

    This is the best she has looked since she started her promo tour and yet she can do so so so much better. I wish she would pick from the spring 2013 couture show which was soo much more exciting than this

  44. Cindy January 13, 2014 at 04:22 #

    She looked beautiful and the back of the dress was perfection. I did not car for the faux bob.

    • Elise January 13, 2014 at 08:26 #

      Totally agreed

    • Penè January 13, 2014 at 13:30 #

      The back of this dress was absolutely amazing. Fitting to perfection. A bit disappointed not to find it here
