Cate Blanchett In Alexander McQueen – 2014 BAFTAs

Cate Blanchett In Alexander McQueen - BAFTAs 2014Cate Blanchett elegantly descended on the 2014 BAFTAs, hosted Sunday (February 16) at The Royal Opera House in London, England.

The ‘Blue Jasmine’ star and Leading Actress nominee stunned in a sleek, jet-black Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2014 short-sleeve column gown, emblazoned with an exploded, silver floral print at the sides.

Injecting a touch of quirk into the look was a silver Chopard statement necklace, featuring a cluster of branches and birds.

A loosely swept-back updo and fresh, barely-there makeup ensured that this moody-chic entrance stayed on the good side of the drama club. Do you agree?

      This, the necklace is exquisite

      Ditto!

      All the jewels she has choose this season have being majestic.

    She can do way better

      Agree completely. Cate is my #1 style icon, and this look is a huge let-down for me. It’s so safe that it wouldn’t even be amazing looking on anyone else either. It’s not ugly but it’s just so boring.

    Lovely dress and that necklace is too die for, but am I the only one who thinks it’s a bit too tight?

    • ValS February 16, 2014 at 19:46 #

      * to die for

    • Cristal February 17, 2014 at 05:21 #

      I also thought that, but on other photos you can see that is it tailored to perfection and not very tight.

    I expected so much from her during awards season… This is just OK.

    lovee

    I’m loving this dress. It is simple (from what she usually wears) but the embroidery takes this to the next level. In motion it looked stunning. It is funnt that this is my favorite from the evening though it is very restrained, but somehow it is a delight to watch.

  7. Yeliz February 16, 2014 at 19:55 #

    It’s a nice look but nothing memorable. Actually a bit lackluster.

  8. Milla B. February 16, 2014 at 19:55 #

    I’m slightly disappointed, but she looks O.K.

  9. kane February 16, 2014 at 19:58 #

    I really don’t care for the modified version, although I’m highly intrigued by the dress in the look book. It’s too tight on Cate, I don’t particularly care for the New Agey necklace, and don’t think she’s already old enough to be in need for this neckline.

  10. Nat39 February 16, 2014 at 20:01 #

    The necklace is a great addition, a perfect way to spice up her simplified demure version of the top. Nice sleek silhouette, she looks elegant, but I can’t help but feel underwhelmed. She can do more than this.

  11. Alice February 16, 2014 at 20:07 #

    It is something about the dress that is really beautiful that makes it special. Maybe how she is wearing it but I like it a lot. All her others looks have been much more dramatic and memorable but I quite understand why she choose this.

  12. Lucy February 16, 2014 at 21:41 #

    Fabolous all way around! Sleek, sophisticated and edgy.

  13. Charlotte February 16, 2014 at 21:52 #

    For me she looked the best in an overall dissapointing red carpet. Lovely

  14. RICI February 17, 2014 at 01:22 #

    The dress is not very noteworhty but she has elevate it by pairing it with that necklace that is a nice contrast to the simplicity from the gown. My favorite of the night, what a queen.

    • Faith February 18, 2014 at 22:50 #

      That necklace is everything, swoon.

  15. Alissa February 17, 2014 at 01:26 #

    Now this is something else. While it isn’t as fashion forward like all the others things she uses to wear, this such an interesting dress. Those silver appliques make the dress.

  16. Lucrezia February 17, 2014 at 01:28 #

    She looks uber chic and so confident in this. Also her make up is flawless.

  17. CreoleLady February 17, 2014 at 01:32 #

    The necklace is wonderful, love the nod to the name of the movie. Tired of the blush-colored confectionary she’s been wearing so I quite like this.

  18. Cristal February 17, 2014 at 05:18 #

    Best dressed of the night! It is not over the top but beautiful nonetheless. I just hope she does not play it safe on Oscar night and goes for something unexpected and iconic.

  19. Lila February 17, 2014 at 05:50 #

    This is gorgeous and really shows Cate’s style to me. This is a dress that would look good to great on most actresses but on Cate, it looks amazing. From her styling choices to her presence, she is wonderful at elevating a pretty dress into a Look and that shows here.

    I wonder if she chose this rather sombre simple gown as she is still dealing with the loss of Philip Seymour Hoffman, to whom she dedicated her award? She seemed very moved when she came off stage and maybe she didn’t feel right wearing something glitzy and veered towards this. I do like it and her necklace was stunning.

  21. Jess2 February 17, 2014 at 11:27 #

    Very nice but I think it might be a little tight.

  22. Nuria February 17, 2014 at 13:20 #

    Very pretty. I would have wish something more edgy, but sometimes simple elegance it’s all that it takes to look like a million dollars.

  23. the ogre February 17, 2014 at 16:49 #

    I think this is what defines her style. She doesn’t need to follow a certain trend or a certain code. That’s for others. Where her world is concerned, she reigns supreme and matches her position infinite times by doling out looks that speak to you. This is once again, elegant and stylish. That floral design had me at hello! Gorgeous and regal!

  24. Prudence February 17, 2014 at 18:33 #

    I really hope she is saving the best for last, cause other than the golden globes she has been looking soo “okay” which is rather frustrating cause she can do better.

  25. Faith February 18, 2014 at 22:49 #

    Her necklace is the standout of the look. I love it.

  26. Bella.J February 19, 2014 at 15:02 #
