Cate Blanchett In Prada -  86th Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon

Cate Blanchett joined Sandra Bullock, Amy Adams and Lupita Nyong’o on the red carpet for the 86th Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Monday (February 10) in Beverly Hills, California.

The actress’ space age metallic silver Prada Fall 2013 asymmetrical, zipper accented dress was worn without the runway sweater and black velvet waistband for a much cleaner, elegant finish.

Only accessorizing with a Christian Louboutin ‘So Kate’ pumps, the actress swept her hair back into a chic bun.

I’m sure the decision to go silver instead of gold was a very deliberate one. No one wants to turn up to an Academy Awards function looking like the statue.
