Who Wore Valentino Better…Cate Blanchett or Elettra Wiedemann?

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.

    No competition. Cate easily.

    Cate is unbeatable.
    Elletra maybe nice and all but… she never stood a chance.

    Cate surely knows how to choose the right necklace – her gold necklace is a perfect statement piece for this look. Factor in her commanding presence, and it’s a very easy win for Cate. Elletra’s necklace does nothing and her red cut-out sandals are clashing with the gown.

    I’m in the minority but it’s Elettra for me.
    Cate’s necklace and bracelet are jarring.
