Cate Blanchett In Givenchy – 3rd Annual InStyle Awards

Cate Blanchett attended the 3rd Annual InStyle Awards on Monday (October 23) in Los Angeles, California.

I love how her Givenchy Spring 2018 dress was oozing retro vibes.

This striped piece feels like one of those gems you find at a vintage store, yet the panelled sleeves – which gives the look its unique silhouette – also possesses a directional slant.

Some might feel the belt takes this into ’60s secretary territory, but I like how it pulls the whole look together with great sophistication.

The majority were not impressed by her Gucci frock, so how does this one fair?

Cate Blanchett In Gucci – ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ LA Premiere

Cate Blanchett joined Tessa Thompson for the Marvel Studios’ ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ premiere on Tuesday (October 10) in Hollywood, California.

While Tessa went down a “this is my moment” princess route, Cate took an edgier trek down a more fashion-forward path in Gucci.

I adore this mimosa flower sequin embroidered long sleeve Spring 2018 look with its sculpted shoulders, draping and front bow, but she kinda loses me from the ankle down.

I don’t need a statement shoe, the dress does enough, but a green sandal to complement her Fred Leighton necklace would’ve sent me over the edge in love with this look as I’m just not feeling those teal velvet Christian Louboutin ‘Decoltish’ pumps.

Cate Blanchett In Givenchy – LFF Connects Event

Continuing to show off her penchant for pants, Cate Blanchett was at the LFF Connects event, held during the BFI London Film Festival on Friday (October 6).

With this Givenchy Spring 2018 ensemble, she combined the experimental nature we’ve seen in some of her recent looks with a simultaneous return to a more classic mode.

I like how she balanced out the directional ruffles of the top with the sleek black pants to create a capriciously refined spirit that celebrated sophisticated flair.

What say you of her latest statement?

Front Row @ Louis Vuitton Spring 2018

Many of the same stars who were at the opening of the Louis Vuitton boutique were seated front row at the Louis Vuitton Spring 2018 show the next day on Tuesday (October 3) during Paris Fashion Week. So, you will be excused if you’re already experiencing a certain kind of déjà vu.

Here, the lineup of the LV looks—take two—from the brand’s biggest fans.

Cate Blanchett: I had a slightly easier time embracing this directional look from Cate, as opposed to her more disjointed offering the day before. Perhaps some elements still seemed a bit forced, but no one can say this wasn’t a mullet-esque look—warrior-chic on the top, and business on the bottom.

Julianne Moore: Stepping away from the colour black, the actress was radiant in this rich, jade-green dress that had its own party happening at the back with the long fringe detail.

Alicia Vikander: Yet again, Alicia’s effortlessly chic look took top billing. In this case, it was her accessories—the handbag and booties, in particular—that really elevated this all-black ensemble.

Maison Louis Vuitton Vendôme Opening

Paris Fashion Week also ushered in the grand opening of the Maison Louis Vuitton at Place Vendôme in Paris, France on Monday (October 2), with a number of the brand’s biggest fans in attendance—and all donning signature LV looks.

Cate Blanchett: As hard as I tried, I just couldn’t get on board with what Cate was serving up here. Between the silken, emerald green jacket and leather belt, the pinstripe blouse and its exaggerated cuffs, and the racing stripe track pants, it looked like she had borrowed pieces from three different looks that should have never been in the same room together.

Julianne Moore: With a look that was as close as Julianne could get to her favoured LBDs, she brought an elegance to this distressed lace dress that was reinforced by her simple approach to styling with a complementary clutch and sandals.

Alicia Vikander: I know that some question the Alicia and LV pairing, but she just wears the looks so effortlessly—even this rebellious combination between a striped top and leopard skirt, topped off with combat boots, had an undeniable cool-girl vibe.

Front Row @ Givenchy Spring 2018

Paris Fashion Week saw a host of pretties on the front row at the Givenchy Spring 2018 show on Sunday (October 1) to witness designer Clare Waight Keller’s first collection for the label.

Lily Collins: Angelic with an edge. That’s exactly how I’d describe Lily’s diaphanous white lace dress punctuated by the black under-straps and mod white booties. I did find myself wishing for a more streamlined, barely-there black sandal here.

Cate Blanchett: Queen Cate was back in all her glory in this impossibly chic suiting ensemble. I love how the cropped proportions and the midnight-blue lip motif on the jacket—coupled with her pendant necklaces—brought a sense of unconventional yet effortless sophistication to the look.

Fan Bingbing: Despite its all-white palette, there was a dramatic allure that permeated this trench dress that saw Fan continuing to step across the line of her go-to, princess-and-platform styles. She balanced the subtle mystique of the sheer sleeves, which was echoed in the sheer gloves and sheer pants, with her sleek bun and bold red lip.
