Cate Blanchett In Givenchy – ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ Royal Premiere

It may have been a royal premiere, but there was only one queen reigning supreme on the red carpet this evening for ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ screening at the Empire Leicester Square, and that was Cate Blanchett.

The Australian actress wore a winter-white Givenchy Spring 2013 gown.

Considering the near-freezing temperatures in the capital this evening, Cate was wise to wear this long-sleeve, side slit, high-neck gown with gold metal accents on both shoulders and inside the cuffs, but the surprise feature of this look was the open back.

The elegant gown was styled with a white Givenchy envelope clutch and Givenchy Spring 2013 fashion-forward heels.

I don’t know about you, but I think I just died and went to fashion heaven.

Cate Blanchett In Peter Pilotto – 2012 Dubai International Film Festival and IWC Filmmaker Award Gala Dinner

Cate Blanchett was back on the red carpet yesterday evening, much to our delight, for the Dubai Film Festival and IWC Schaffhausen Filmmaker Award Gala dinner held at the One and Only Mirage Hotel in Dubai.

Looking fashion forward in her Peter Pilotto Spring 2013 look, she opted not to wear the psychedelic pants worn on the runway, going instead for a more event-appropriate trim black skirt.

The pants weren’t needed as the crewneck beaded and embroidered peplum top with short flutter sleeves sells this look on its own.

A black clutch and sandals with gold beaded details, both by Roger Vivier, plus a watch by the host, IWC, accessorized her look.

Flawless makeup and a simple bun provided the finishing touches.

Cate Blanchett In Rodarte – ‘Life of PI’ Dubai Film Festival Premiere & Opening Gala

Speaking of regal beauties at the ‘Life of Pi’ opening gala screening – held on day one of the Dubai lnternational Film Festival at the Madinat Jumeirah Complex in Dubai, United Arab Emirates on Sunday evening – Cate Blanchett joined Frieda Pinto in dropping jaws in awe on the red carpet.

There was a brief moment where we feared our Queen had lost her way, but she was firmly back on course wearing this stunning Rodarte Spring 2013 gown.

Her dusty-blue drop-shoulder silk gown with burnt-orange panels at the waist and floaty chiffon skirt has us bowing down saying “we are not worthy”.

Thankfully, she removed the chain accent and burnt orange hot-pants, taking away the edge and softening the look.

What was a daring look on the runway has been transformed into an ethereal, sophisticated look which is already in contention for BDOTW.

Soft, complexion-enhancing makeup, a silver watch, stud earrings, Jimmy Choo heels and a simple updo completed her look.

Cate Blanchett In Antonio Berardi – ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ World Premiere

I was very excited to see Cate Blanchett back on the red carpet this evening in Wellington, New Zealand for the world premiere of ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’.

Her first look of this promo tour was an Antonio Berardi Resort 2013 gown.

The tri-colour look has a lot of elements, with the sheer red top with a fitted bustier, white corset-like centre and long black crepe skirt, but Queen Cate manages to pull it off.

Simple styling was the key to making this look work, so Cate added a beaded bracelet, stud earrings and Roger Vivier ‘Prismick’ sandals to her look.

Her short blonde bob was accented with a silver clip to provide the finishing touch.

What a way to kick start the campaign. I hope she continues to opt for bold looks like this throughout the tour. Fingers crossed.
