22.05.18 Photocall

‘Ocean’s 8’ Worldwide Photocall

It was a fashion fiesta at the ‘Ocean’s 8’ worldwide photocall at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Tuesday (May 22) in New York City

Sarah Paulson: The fashion-forward actress put her own stamp on ladylike style in Michael Kors Collection Fall 2018. The exaggerated collar, sheer fabrication and contrasting godets add a quirky finish to the feminine look without taking away from its charm.

Awkwafina: The rapper and actress cut a sharp figure in a monochromatic ensemble. The cutout and sleek tailoring juxtapose the austerity of the Victorian collar.

Sandra Bullock: Opting for bright colour, she was outfitted in Elie Saab Resort 2018. No loud accessories were necessary between the striking shade and silhouette. If I must nitpick, the trousers need to be taken up.

Cate Blanchett: Another beauty in bold colour, she looked regal in Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2018. The colour combination, accessories (especially those Aquazzura ‘Simply Irresistible’ spicy red pumps) and fabrics exude sumptuous glamour, elevating the runway style into something formal enough for the event.

Anne Hathaway: Wearing ethereal white Maticevski, she looked like a dream. The choice of fabric and the metal zip prevented it from becoming a saccharine princess moment. Alexis Bittar jewelry completed her look.

Mindy Kaling: She normally shines in bright colours, but opted for inky black Stella McCartney and Louboutin shoes. It still had impact thanks to the sprinkling of embellishment. The soft silhouette has a sophisticated ease, but with the undone hair, some might critique it as having too much of a boudoir vibe.

Cate Blanchett In Alexander McQueen – ‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere & Closing Ceremony

Saving the best for last, Cate Blanchett stepped out at ‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote’ premiere and Cannes Film Festival closing ceremony on Saturday (May 19), joining Kristen Stewart and Olga Kurylenko.

The president of the jury brought such drama with her Alexander McQueen Fall 2018 ensemble with Chopard jewels.

Seamlessly bringing together impeccably sharp tailoring with alluring liquid draping, it was unlike anything we had seen before and had such a mind-blowing effect.

When she turned around, the draped bow back was just as magnificent, creating the impression of wings.

For those who were fed up with the on slot of sheer, heavily embellished styles, this hopefully delighted.

Cate Blanchett In Givenchy Haute Couture – ‘Capharnaum’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

While Kristen Stewart was having fun at the amfAR Gala, Cate Blanchett was still fulfilling her official capacity as jury president at the premiere of ‘Capharnaum’ during Cannes Film Festival this evening (May 17).

As expected, I have loved every look that Cate has presented, but that came to a halt this evening.

My issue with this Givenchy Spring 2018 Haute Couture jumpsuit it that – even with the cascading fan – I’m not getting that grandiose, super woman standing 6ft tall vibe I always get from Cate.

The pinstripes feel almost too formal and the overall look has a stumptifying effect.

Chopard Trophée Red Carpet Roundup

Cate Blanchett and Elizabeth Debicki stepped out at the Cannes Film Festival Chopard Trophée event on Monday evening (May 14), alongside Araya A. Hargate and Diane Kruger.

Cate Blanchett: This Armani Prive gown exudes the regal, ethereal finish that demonstrates why the actress and designer are such a wonderful pairing. The dress might lack bold orientation but the exquisite tailoring is apparent with it seamlessly combining structure and fluidity. The multicoloured necklace brought the megawatt sparkle.

Elizabeth Debicki: Also in soft tones, the actress wore a Miu Miu gown that was trimmed in rhinestones for a captivating finish. The embellishment enhances the lines of the dress as well as her figure while creating interesting movement.

Cate Blanchett In Givenchy Haute Couture – ‘Blackkklansman’ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Cate Blanchett was back on the red carpet for the Cannes Film Festival premiere of ‘Blackkklansman’ this evening (May 14).

You can’t have a rainbow without the rain, so Cate donned this Givenchy Spring 2018 Haute Couture gown to banish the Monday blues.

I did want to put this on my wish list for Cate, as I have adored this open-back colourful tiered gown since it hit the runway, but I thought, “who would wear a turtleneck at Cannes?”

It looks like the Queen has answered my question.

Chopard jewels completed her look.

Cate Blanchett In Iris Van Herpen Haute Couture – Kering x Cannes Dinner

Cate Blanchett continues to delight at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival, stepping out at the Kering x Cannes dinner on Sunday (May 13). She joined Chloë Sevigny and Kristen Stewart.

I was swept up in the dramatic display of her Iris Van Herpen Spring 2018 Haute Couture dress. Both versions had such a striking abstract animal finish from the smattering of details.

The vivid blue and modifications suited her ethereal air while giving the style even more impact.

Some might say it’s a bit much for a dinner, but it’s not when she looks this fabulous and she’s the festival’s jury president.
