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?
