Cate Blanchett Loves…Roksanda

Cate Blanchett Loves Roksanda

Cate Blanchett and Roksanda Ilincic: Two power girls with an impeccable sense of style—and who have actually become much of a perfect star-designer match. In fact, Cate can’t seem to get enough of the London-based designer’s bold block colours, artistic-inspired aesthetic, and signature, contemporary lines.

For the actress, who is elegance personified, Roksanda is right in keeping with her classic grace while maintaining a directional, modern spirit.

We’ve seen Queen Cate wear the versatile label for several years now, kicking off her chic streak at the ‘Blue Jasmine’ Los Angeles press conference where she showed that simple is sometimes the best answer in a richly hued bordeaux dress from the Fall 2013 collection.

Colour was also key in her effortless, vibrant coral Roksanda Ilincic Fall 2013 gown at the ‘Blue Jasmine’ Sydney premiere—a look that was set afire with her deep magenta lip.

From minimalism to a more fashion-forward edge, the actress once again impressed in a Fall 2014 frock at the Film Independent Spirit Awards 2014, which was brilliant for its confident colour-blocking, flower decal and metal belt.

Giving the dresses a rest, she sported a more mannish ensemble earlier this month at The Ellen DeGeneres Show, suiting up in a Resort 2015 blue blazer and pants.

Going from strength to strength, Cate most recently delighted in a geometric lavender and coral-pink Pre-Fall 2015 dress for the ‘Cinderella’ Sydney premiere. The charming outing was the icing on the cake of her Roksanda run that shows no sign of slowing anytime soon.

Cate Blanchett In Roksanda – ‘Cinderella’ Sydney Premiere

Cate Blanchett In Roksanda - 'Cinderella' Sydney Premiere

Cate Blanchett was flying solo on the red carpet for the Australian premiere of Disney’s ‘Cinderella’ at State Theatre on Sunday (March 15) in Sydney, Australia.

I adore her Roksanda Pre-Fall 2015 frock for its striking approach with the structured blocks of colour accenting the piece perfectly balanced by the feminine appeal of the fluid skirt.

I will have to take away points for the uninspiring foot wear as I would’ve loved for her to have worn those complementary LookBook heels, but we can’t always get what we want.

With a rosy glow, the look was complete with a simple ponytail.

Ankles up, this is another gorgeous look from the red carpet queen.

Cate Blanchett In Roksanda – The Ellen DeGeneres Show

Cate Blanchett In Roksanda - The Ellen DeGeneres Show

Cate Blanchett made a guest appearance on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ on Tuesday (March 3) promoting her latest movie, ‘Cinderella’, which had its LA premiere on Sunday.

The actress wore a Roksanda cerulean-blue suit from the Resort 2015 collection paired with a white Peter Pilotto Pre-Fall 2015 blouse accented with a blue and black printed bib.

Pains me to say, but I’m not a fan of this look.

Where it falls down is the busy blouse. There is far too much going on, but this print did work on the darker backdrop of Margot Robbie’s Peter Pilotto jumpsuit.

I would also question the size, but looking at the model in the look book, the fit is apparently supposed to be boxy.

Looking for a plus, I do love the cool blue hue, which enhances Cate’s radiant glow.

Yay or nay for Cate in this Roksanda suit?

Cate Blanchett In Celine - ‘Cinderella’ LA Premiere

Cate Blanchett attended the premiere of Disney’s ‘Cinderella’ held at the El Capitan Theatre on Sunday (March 1) in Hollywood, California.

The Australian actress wore a custom Celine look that personifies Parisian sartorial elegance.

Simple and yet intrinsically charming, this is quite a statement look for the contemporary dresser. What I love most is the pendant necklace, which prevents this look from feeling too one dimensional.

An instant classic or a total snooze?

Cate Blanchett In Maison Margiela Couture – 2015 Oscars

Cate Blanchett In Martin Margiela - 2015 Oscars_

Cate Blanchett graced the red carpet on Sunday (February 22) at the 2015 Oscars, hosted at Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre.

The red carpet maven wore an unusually less-is-more style versus her typical wild card choices, but the Maison Margiela Couture design – created by John Galliano – looked sleek and effortless on the actress.

The high-neck column gown had a slight train with unfinished hem lines on the sleeves for a romantic feathered effect. Cate looked elegant and at ease in the gown, which she amped up with a bold turquoise floral bib necklace by Tiffany & Co. that beautifully mirrored the color of her eyes, making the jewels stand out even more.

As for beauty, Cate looked ethereal with a voluminous back-swept style, slightly smudgy eye colour and a nude-pink shade on her lips.

Do you love Cate’s unusually simple fashion choice, or wish she’d wore a statement-making gown like we’ve come to expect from her?

Cate Blanchett In Schiaparelli Couture – 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards

Cate Blanchett In Schiaparelli Couture - 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards

Cate Blanchett cut a striking profile at the 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday (February 21), hosted at Santa Monica Beach in Santa Monica, California.

She wore her heart on her sleeve—literally—in this Schiaparelli Spring 2015 Couture design that was aflutter with the motif of hearts shot through by Cupid’s bow along with eye-catching dimensional embroidery.

Boasting the subtle surrealistic vibe for which the house of Schiaparelli is known, the streamlined dress with ruffle hem was exuberant and whimsical yet as elegantly chic as can be—perfect for Cate.

All I can say is I absolutely heart this look—do you?
