Cate Blanchett In Maison Martin Margiela – 29th Santa Barbara International Film Festival

Cate Blanchett In Maison Martin Margiela - 29th Santa Barbara International Film Festival

Cate Blanchett attended the 29th Santa Barbara International Film Festival on Saturday (February 1) at the Arlington Theatre in Santa Barbara, California, where she received the ‘Outstanding Performer Of The Year’ award.

The actress wore a multi-coloured Maison Martin Margiela Spring 2014 honeycomb sequined sleeveless frock.

I love how she turned this look on its head from the runway’s overcoat styling and made it into a chic, event appropriate dress.

The look works both ways don’t you agree?

Sporting rosy cheeks, a pink lip and sleek straight tresses, Cate completed her look with Casadei silver ‘Barbarella’ pumps.

    I’m not wowed, but I can appreciate her for doing something different.

    It’s never plain vanilla with her even when it’s for a relatively “minor” event (no disrespect – only mean no gown required) and I love her for that
    I find that absolutely perfect for the event
    She’s looking lovely every single time she’s on the RC

      Yes, she is always perfect.

    Love the front but not the back. I wish she can step up her shoe game as well.

    What a lovely dress, great colours! I’m not wowed by the back, but she had the lazer for that.

    Eeeeekkk!Perfect! Long live Queen Cate! I love the fact that she chose a Margiela frock. Love it!

    In my opinion, this woman hardly ever gets it wrong and I’m constantly intrigued and amazed at the same time by the choices that she makes on the red carpet. This look is a classic example of her ability to do just that. Excellent!

    I really love this dress! As always, Cate looks stunning!

    I don’t really care for this dress but I do like Cate’s overall look.

    Adore the dress, but the shoes are terrible.

    I feel like a broken record sometimes…Love the dress, hate the shoes. Why oh why, with endless choices, can’t these women or stylists get it right when it comes to shoes?? Shoes can make or break a look, they can be the sublime ending to a gorgeous outfit or a clunky downer for a promising look. These just bring down the outfit for me.

    This is very pretty and event appropiated. It is edgy, different and fun but not over the top. Lovely choice.
