Best Dressed Of The Week – Blake Lively in Gucci Première, Cate Blanchett In Armani Privé, Ryan Reynolds in Gucci & Benedict Cumberbatch in Ralph Lauren

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.

Cate Blanchett In Armani Privé – Vanity Fair And Armani Party

Cate Blanchett In Armani Privé -  Vanity Fair And Armani Party

Cate Blanchett attended the Vanity Fair And Armani Party held during the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival on Saturday (May 17) in Cap d’Antibes, France.

Looking regal wearing Armani Privé, the actress didn’t add too many accessories to detract from her stunning dress.

I love the lightly embellished detailing, the gold lace overlay and that barely seen organza peplum detail which cascades down the back.

Sadly, no full-length picture is available, but I’m sure she was perfection from head to toe. This is Cate Blanchett, after all.

Cate Blanchett In Givenchy – ‘How To Train Your Dragon 2′ Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Cate Blanchett In Givenchy - ‘How To Train Your Dragon 2? Cannes Film Festival Premiere

Cate Blanchett attended the Cannes Film Festival premiere for ‘How To Train Your Dragon 2′ this evening (May 16) following the photocall earlier in the day.

The actress wore a Givenchy Fall 2014 gown with an embellished multi-coloured bodice, sheer illusion back and black pleated skirt.

I want to be blown away – I really, really do – and had this been her first look this week I may have been, but had something more ethereal in mind plus I wasn’t a huge fan of this collection.

In short, I like the look, especially the sapphire chandelier Chopard earrings, but I don’t love it.

What say you?

Cate Blanchett & Penelope Cruz In Armani Privé – Chopard Party

Cate Blanchett & Penelope Cruz In Armani Privé - Chopard Party

Chopard hosted a private party that took place during Cannes Film Festival on Thursday (May 15).

Cate Blanchett: Outdoing herself for the third time this week, the actress stunned wearing a Giorgio Armani Privé short-sleeved turquoise silk jacquard organza long dress with an intricate geometric design fully embroidered with Swarovski crystals. This is beyond amazing. I don’t think she’s looked this jaw-dropping since her BDOTY win of 2010.

Penelope Cruz: The Spanish beauty also wore Armani Privé, selecting a white silk-cady gown with a black bow on the waist. It’s a crying shame I can’t find a full-length picture.

Paz Vega: The actress cozied up to Penelope, opting for a sharply tailored look wearing a black tuxedo-inspired jumpsuit styled with a Zagliani ‘Faye’ silver python clutch.

Cate Blanchett In Delpozo – ‘How To Train Your Dragon 2′ Cannes Film Festival Photocall

Cate Blanchett was back on the red carpet this afternoon (May 16) for the ‘How To Train Your Dragon 2′ photocall during the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France.

The Australian actress wore a Delpozo Fall 2014 look with pop-art tones and playful geometric shapes infused into her tri-colour A-line structured top with mod movement.

Crisp navy trousers with a high waistline were the perfect pairing for her crop top.

Red Roger Vivier open-toe heels completed her fresh mid-afternoon look.

Cate Blanchett In Valentino – Trophée Chopard

Cate Blanchett In Valentino - Trophée Chopard

Cate Blanchett attended the Trophée Chopard event held this evening (May 15) during the 67th Annual Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France.

A Cate Blanchett red carpet appearance is always special, but the excitement increases 10-fold during Cannes.

This was especially true when she graced the red carpet looking divine wearing a grey Valentino Pre-Fall 2014 sheer gown with silver metallic floral lace embroidery, feathered short sleeves and matching collar style with Chopard jewels.

I had bookmarked this for Keira Knightley, but Cate should’ve been at the forefront of my mind.

Understated opulence at its very finest.

Does this top her Ralph Lauren look?
