Who Wore Valentino Better Cate Blanchett Elettra Wiedemann

Cate Blanchett attended the opening night gala of the 10th Annual Dubai International Film Festival back in December wearing a gorgeous Valentino maroon short-sleeved cady gown featuring a column skirt and a cape-style bodice with overlay falling down her back.

What made this look so special was her breathtaking Hervé Van der Straeten ancient artisan-inspired tiered gold necklace.

Elettra Wiedemann wore the same dress to the New York Observer relaunch event, styling her look with red Jimmy Choo cut-out sandals and a Sabine G. white-gold necklace with white diamonds, emeralds and blue sapphires.

Elettra’s shoes don’t work for me; I find them quite jarring considering the simplicity of the rest of her look. However, with that necklace and her regal pose, this was an easy win for Cate.
