Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Cate Blanchett In Fausto Puglisi -  'The Hobbit The Battle Of The Five Armies' Comic-Con 2014 Press Line
Cate Blanchett was at ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ press line, hosted at the Hilton Bayfront hotel during Comic-Con International 2014 in San Diego, California on Saturday (July 26).

I have to say that I could barely believe my eyes when I saw Cate; it’s like some particularly heinous comic-book villains stole her sophisticated style.

This Fausto Puglisi Resort 2015 dress, worn with Roger Vivier black pumps, was many shades of wrong—from the pink to the pleats, and from the boxy T-shirt sleeves to the satin detailing.

Better to not dwell on what could be her most disappointing look ever.

I have complete faith that Cate will be recovered in no time and back to her regal red-carpet ways.

Cate Blanchett In Elie Saab Couture - SK-II Promotional Event 2

Cate Blanchett continues to lend her gorgeous face to SK-II by attending a promotional event earlier today (July 22) in Shanghai, China.

Opting for a clean, fresh look perfect for allowing that glowing skin to be the centre of attention, the Australian actress wore an Elie Saab Spring 2013 Couture white embroidered lace dress with scalloped trims and three-quarter-length sleeves which she styled with nude pumps and diamond jewels.

As always, there is a sense of effortlessness about this look. She couldn’t look more regal if she tried.

I believe this may be the first time Cate has worn Elie Saab (please correct me if I’m wrong); it was worth the wait, don’t you agree?

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.

Cate Blanchett In Chloé - Women In Film 2014 Crystal + Lucy Awards

Cate Blanchett attended the Women In Film 2014 Crystal + Lucy Awards at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza on Wednesday (June 11) in Century City, California where she collected the 2014 Crystal Award for Excellence in Film.

The actress wore an ultra-feminine piece from Chloé, who do soft hues and pretty, cascading ruffles oh so very well.

Everything about this look is light and effortless, from the dress itself to the styling and the makeup.

If you look a little closer, you can see that Cate broke up the ivory hue with a pair of Lorraine Schwartz brown diamond and turquiose leaf earrings, with a chic updo and gold Jimmy Choo ‘Doodle’ sandals completing the look.

Cate Blanchett In Chanel - 'How To Train Your Dragon 2' Sydney Premiere

Following the LA premiere for ‘How To Train Your Dragon 2′ with American Ferrera on Sunday evening, Cate Blanchett took up the Australian leg of the tour earlier today (June 9), attending the Sydney premiere held at Event Cinemas George Street.

The Australian actress kept up the colourful embellished bodice trend she started at the Cannes Film Festival premiere, this time donning a Chanel Resort 2015 flared-sleeve black frock.

Her dress, which also features buttoned detailing going down both sides of the skirt, was styled with simple black pumps and little else in the way of jewels or a clutch.

She just let the dress and that heart-warming smile do all the work.

We weren’t too enamoured with her previous Givenchy gown, so how does this look fare?

BDOTW Cannes

With so much going on this weekend I almost forgot to announce who was best dressed of the week.

Well, it was a two-way tie between Blake Lively in Gucci Première and Blake Lively in Gucci Première. While I believed her opening ceremony gown was the better of the two, it would appear you guys loved them both equally.

My choice was the great Cate Blanchett in Armani Privé. What can I say; it’s a match made in fashion heaven.

When it came to the fellas, you gave Ryan Reynolds in Gucci the top honour this week. I, on the other hand, was swept away by Benedict Cumberbatch in his impeccable Ralph Lauren Black Label suit.
