Cate Blanchett In Roksanda Ilincic – Film Independent Spirit Awards 2014

Cate Blanchett In Roksanda Ilincic - Film Independent Spirit Awards 2014

Cate Blanchett took to the ‘blue’ carpet at the 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards at Santa Monica Beach in Santa Monica, California today (March 1).

The ‘Blue Jasmine’ actress and Best Female Lead nominee put forth a fashion-forward entrance, donning a Roksanda Ilincic Fall 2014 felt dress that fused large, colour-block panels of burgundy and sand accented with a cornflower-blue flower shape.

Cinched with the shine of a significant, gold metallic belt, which obviously precluded the need for jewels, the relaxed, above-the-ankle silhouette took on a mod urban appeal.

Creamy nude Nicholas Kirkwood cutout sandals put the directional look on casually chic ground, whereas a metallic pair would have taken it to a dressier level. I’m just glad she skipped the runway footwear for this occasion.

With her hair loosely pulled back into a fishtail braid and with barely the slick of makeup to her name, I love how effortlessly Cate pulls off this trendsetting look, taking it into timelessly elegant territory, as well.

    A beautiful look for a daytime awards season ceremony. Love the dress on her, but I would’ve preferred simple nude sandals. Still she looks great.

      +1 my only nitpick is the shoes

        +5, the shoes are ruing this for me.

    Wow! You guys work round the clock bringing on the red carpet in real time!!! Kudos! And yes Cate is killing it here. Love the dress- the colours work in her favour. The braids too. I CANNOT WAIT to see what she will wear to win her 2nd Oscar tomorrow!

      I’m so excited to see her Oscar dress.

    I would have never picked this dress, even less the shoes, but she makes it work.

    I adore (!!) the fashion-forwardness of the look! The sandals in combination with this length stumpify her legs, would’ve preferred a more flattering/leg-lengthening shoe. I love that Cate keeps things interesting with her unusual choices and I love this one.

    The shoes are Nicolas kirkwood

    LOVE LOVE LOVE

    Hallelujah! Color — a graphic print, no less. Creative, current hair. Great hardware. Shoe that do not put me to sleep, not my fave color but the gold heels save them. Signed, sealed, delivered.

    She is on a roll. Everyhting is gorgeous here. The best dressed of the night.

  10. Alison March 2, 2014 at 01:35 #

    I love the color combination and how it suits her. She has delivered three different but stunning looks these weekend that will be hard to top. I’m loving she is being risky again.

    Having seen Cate pretty up close earlier today, I must say she was divine !! Her warmth smile and poise…She always add something to what she wears, and not let the dress wears her.

  12. Robbie March 2, 2014 at 10:59 #

    Flawless as per usual.

  13. Christine March 2, 2014 at 23:00 #

    Gorgeous as always. The dress is very interesting and fun.
