Cate Blanchett & Penelope Cruz In Armani Privé – Chopard Party

Cate Blanchett & Penelope Cruz In Armani Privé - Chopard Party

Chopard hosted a private party that took place during Cannes Film Festival on Thursday (May 15).

Cate Blanchett: Outdoing herself for the third time this week, the actress stunned wearing a Giorgio Armani Privé short-sleeved turquoise silk jacquard organza long dress with an intricate geometric design fully embroidered with Swarovski crystals. This is beyond amazing. I don’t think she’s looked this jaw-dropping since her BDOTY win of 2010.

Penelope Cruz: The Spanish beauty also wore Armani Privé, selecting a white silk-cady gown with a black bow on the waist. It’s a crying shame I can’t find a full-length picture.

Paz Vega: The actress cozied up to Penelope, opting for a sharply tailored look wearing a black tuxedo-inspired jumpsuit styled with a Zagliani ‘Faye’ silver python clutch.

    I think we have a contender for BDOTY here.

    • Christine May 16, 2014 at 18:29 #

      Definitely. I see no one else but Cate! Exquisite and so rich. BDOTY worthy!!!! She is freaking royalty.

    • Christine May 16, 2014 at 20:48 #


    • Lisa May 16, 2014 at 21:22 #

      It is actually my best so far. I love everything about it, even the necklace.

    • Linda May 16, 2014 at 22:58 #

      Absolutely. I didn’t think she could top the Ralph Lauren look, but this is heavenly and elegance and glamour and beauty personified.

  2. Tatiana May 16, 2014 at 17:48 #

    Speechless. This is just perfect and the best look of the year so far. Really, she is killing it this week much more than at award season. BDOTY for me and one of my favorite looks from her ever (and that’s saying something as she has many great ones).

  3. Isabella May 16, 2014 at 17:49 #

    Ups, but i don’t like the red stone ring (ruby?) and the green necklace with the blue… too much colours for me

  4. Alina May 16, 2014 at 17:50 #

    OMG! Cate is perfection here! My favourite look of hers this week.

  5. shontay May 16, 2014 at 17:53 #

    Cate is unbelievable. BDOTY contender, no doubt.

    • pinksugar May 16, 2014 at 17:55 #

      Seriously! Just when you think she can’t outdo the last look BAM! she does. Love this on her.

  6. Henrique May 16, 2014 at 17:59 #

    God… I wasn’t expecting this. Cate is just my favourite on the red carpet.

  7. Yeliz May 16, 2014 at 18:03 #

    Oh . My. God. Cate’s look is PERFECTION. My jaw dropped. She looks sensational. Just wow!

  8. Daisy May 16, 2014 at 18:11 #

    All three great looks!

  9. Fanny May 16, 2014 at 18:21 #

    Cate’s outfit deserved it’s own post and a bigger picture.
    The dress is gorgeous. BDOTY

    • Jerusa May 16, 2014 at 21:01 #

      +10!!!! I agreed!

  10. from-chitown May 16, 2014 at 18:23 #

    We are not worthy – Cate is perfection here. Definite BDOTY contender – this is right up there with the white RL from earlier this week.

  11. H May 16, 2014 at 18:25 #

    Cate is killing it and crushing it! Both Paz and Penélope look great as well.

  12. CreoleLady May 16, 2014 at 18:35 #

    This surpasses the white Lauren for me for two reasons — a slightly trimmer fit around the waist and the color. Blanchett in a seasonal non-neutral color. Am channelling Etta James by singing “at last…”. J’adore.

  13. Maria May 16, 2014 at 18:37 #

    Cate looks SPECTACULAR. There are no other words!

    • Camille May 16, 2014 at 20:21 #

      I know! She just keeps amazing us with these spectacular looks, each unique and beautiful and styled to perfection! She’s truly in a category all by herself.

    • Kate May 16, 2014 at 22:25 #

      +2. She looks divine!

    • Susan N. May 16, 2014 at 23:46 #


    • Fatima May 18, 2014 at 01:03 #

      Like a goddess.

  14. mm May 16, 2014 at 18:40 #

    2010 was such a good year dress-wise. The dress looks like it was painted on Cate. She is on a roll for sure. Truly gorgeous

  15. smruthi May 16, 2014 at 18:46 #

    Can someone please shut my mouth…its aching…this is a stellar look and i cant stop staring at her in disbelief 😀

  16. d May 16, 2014 at 18:48 #

    oh Cate! speechless….

  17. Marybeth May 16, 2014 at 18:49 #

    Love Cate’s look!
    The necklace, which I suppose she had to wear for Chopard, is an unfortunate addition but can be overlooked. (Likewise with the big red ring.)
    She looks wonderful — though I still give the edge to that h2t perfect Ralph Lauren.

    I wish we could see more of Penelope Cruz. What we do see is fantastic.

  18. TeaAtTwo May 16, 2014 at 18:58 #

    I can forgive Cate’s mostly bland run during award season she’s been wonderful at Cannes so far.

  19. Hannah May 16, 2014 at 18:59 #

    Cate takes my breath away… again! She looks amazing. I absolutely love her fashion choices.

  20. Jai May 16, 2014 at 19:02 #

    wow, that dress is amazing. it’s still inexplicable to me she wore such a boring oscars gown.

  21. kane May 16, 2014 at 19:13 #

    This is mesmerizing! It needed Cate to kickstart the festival after a promising first night, but not much more and even less on day 2. However, this only makes it into the top4 or 5 of my favourite Cate looks: I find the ring rather jarring, so sadly no “perfect, wouldn’t have changed a thing” look.

  22. Suz May 16, 2014 at 19:27 #

    Cate’s dress is gorgeous! She continues to outdo herself this week. She keeps this up and I may have to start an all-Cate Pinterest board! 😉

  23. Pedro May 16, 2014 at 19:27 #

    OH MY GOD!!!

    Queen Cate looks epic! BDOTY for sure

    • Joy May 17, 2014 at 01:58 #

      + 1

  24. Nat39 May 16, 2014 at 19:39 #

    Now, this is what I’m talking about!!! Cate is INCREDIBLE! Her personal best in a while and my fave look of the event so far, BDOTW worthy and a BDOTY candidate. Stunning!

    • HM May 17, 2014 at 10:33 #

      +1. Agreed! BDOTW & BDOTY candidate! Whatever she was drinking when she chose this dress, she needs to down the whole bottle! AH-BLOODY-MAZING!

    • Eva Kant May 18, 2014 at 01:02 #

      I don’t think any other Cannes dress matches this. This is pure beauty

  25. Manuel May 16, 2014 at 20:07 #

    O M G!

    That is a spectacular dress! I agree with you that she nearly tops the 2010 Alexander McQueen

    Queen Cate for BDOTW x 3 and BDOTY for sure!

    I am your Majesty’s most humble servant :)

    • Shelly May 18, 2014 at 02:23 #

      I think it is on the same level of her Givenchy at the Oscars and the Lacroix she wore some years ago.

  26. amy May 16, 2014 at 20:14 #

    cate looks incredible

  27. Lee Ann May 16, 2014 at 20:23 #


  28. dee May 16, 2014 at 20:36 #

    This is magnificent.

  29. Christine May 16, 2014 at 20:47 #

    My BDOTY and no one comes close to this. The color, the shape, everything is perfect here.

  30. Mari May 16, 2014 at 20:49 #

    She has everything to make a dress look great.
    the height, the body type, the great posture, elegance, personality, beauty… I need a dictionary! on top of that, she know how to dress her body, and has a great eye and taste.
    Perfect, BDOTY postulant.
    Have a great weekend, FC!

    • Catherine Kallon May 16, 2014 at 23:31 #

      you too. make sure you check back tomorrow…there are no weekend breaks during Cannes 😉 x

      • Mari May 17, 2014 at 03:01 #

        That is true, what am I thinking, Cannes=fashion p0rn!!!!! tnx for your hard work, CK!

  31. Rebecca Z May 16, 2014 at 20:56 #

    Too bad Cate didn’t wear this on the red carpet where we’d get to see the dress from many angles. It is superb. She looks so regal and gorgeous.

  32. EmmaWoodhouse May 16, 2014 at 21:01 #

    My jaw DROPPED for Cate and I had to pick it back up again!!! This is BEYOND fabulous and a very strong BDOTY contender! She has been doing well lately, as usual, but this is indeed the best she has looked in quite some time!!! I am in awe and just thrilled with this. Love the necklace/neckiece with it and the ring and the hairstyle. She knows how to work a room!!!
    Penelope looks nice. Paz’s look isn’t to my taste. But let’s be honest, I’m not really looking at them. I see Cate!

    • Martin May 16, 2014 at 23:41 #

      This is such an epic look. This tops anything that she has pulled out this year. Best Dressed of the Year looks like a forgone conclusion.

    • Yolanda May 18, 2014 at 01:10 #

      She really eclipses everyone else, doesn’t she? And yes there is not better dress than this.

  33. Lisa May 16, 2014 at 21:21 #

    Flaw-free. I gasped when I saw this in the morning, so regal and grandiose. BDOTY!

  34. adrian May 16, 2014 at 21:25 #

    she just needs to stop. I can’t with her. Too exquisite. Too amazing.

  35. Britta May 16, 2014 at 22:06 #

    The only sad thing about this is that Cate Blanchett didn’t take this stunning look to a red carpet! Would love to see it so much more! Absolutely gorgeous and BDOTY worthy!

    • Linda May 16, 2014 at 22:59 #

      Agree with every word. Would love to have seen it one a red carpet and it’s a very strong contender for BDOTY along with her white Ralph Lauren look.

  36. Jess May 16, 2014 at 22:29 #

    Cate looks out of this world

  37. Aitana May 16, 2014 at 23:44 #

    She looks so beautiful in this color. BDOTY worthy and I don’t know if it is possible to top this (watch tomorrow for her to wear something even better).

  38. firien May 17, 2014 at 00:02 #

    Cate has a little Frozen-inspired feel… :) I could spend a day looking at her in awe.

  39. Erin May 17, 2014 at 01:19 #

    Cate is faultless here. Beyond stunning!

  40. Schuy May 17, 2014 at 03:30 #

    Speechless! I have no words for how amazing this is in every way! Perhaps my favorite look from her ever

  41. JamilaMaz May 17, 2014 at 05:19 #

    My eyes actually bulged out of head at this. I think it’s safe to say Cate is guranteed a spot or 3 on the BDOTY post, amazing!!!!

  42. Jess2 May 17, 2014 at 06:53 #

    It is almost unbelievable how perfect Cate is!! Love this but struggling to choose between this look and her Valentino. Either way, both have made it to my BDOTY contenders list!

  43. Isabelle May 17, 2014 at 07:22 #

    The color, the color is everything and something else. It makes her complexion look even more flawless and her eyes look brighter. Best of the year without a doubt.

  44. Mimi May 17, 2014 at 21:34 #

    That feather detal in the neckline is super cute.

  45. Heaven May 18, 2014 at 00:38 #

    I think Paz is wearing Saint Laurent spring 2014 : http://www.style.com/fashionshows/complete/slideshow/S2014RTW-YSLRG/#41

  46. Eva Kant May 18, 2014 at 01:01 #

    This has to be one of the most awe inspiring dresses I’ve ever seen. The way how it fits her it’s crazy. I’m so in love with this.

  47. Yolanda May 18, 2014 at 01:11 #

    The back is even better I think. Beautiful dress from all angles.

  48. Shelly May 18, 2014 at 02:21 #

    BDOTY. Immaculate. Everything is on point and though the dress is a an art piece of itself, he face is selling the looks.

  49. Shannie May 18, 2014 at 03:48 #

    This dress is everything. She always looks stunning in Armani Prive. This dress is architectural perfection. I love it and Cate looks flawless.

  50. Lizzie May 18, 2014 at 07:10 #

    How lovely!

  51. Anthony X May 18, 2014 at 07:15 #

    Forget Chastain, Lively and others. How I missed this look? It is unreal, it has glamour, sleekness and oozes sophistication. It goes to the number one spot of my BDOTY list.

  52. Alison Letizia May 18, 2014 at 18:02 #

    Actually, the necklace complements the style of the dress and inhances it. It makes it better and peculiar.

  53. Larissa May 18, 2014 at 20:09 #

    I’m speechless. What a woman!

  54. Cheryl May 21, 2014 at 19:21 #

    What’s strange is Armani Prive looks are never that spectacular on the runway as they are presented (the styling usually lets it down). But when Cate puts on Armani Prive, hot damn. Just hand her BDOTY already.
