Cate Blanchett In Jonathan Simkhai, Antonio Marras & Lanvin – Good Morning America, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon & ‘Carol’ New York Premiere

Cate Blanchett In Jonathan Simkhai,  Antonio Marras & Lanvin - Good Morning America, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon & 'Carol' New York Premiere

Cate Blanchett has a busy day in New York City on Monday (November 16) where she continued to promote her latest movie, ‘Carol’.

Good Morning America: After her all-black all-of-the-time phase, this Jonathan Simkhai Spring 2016 mixed mesh floral dress was so very refreshing. I love seeing Cate’s daintier side.

The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon: Showcasing her flare to master just about any look, the actress wore an all-encompassing look of dark romantic sartorialism by Antonio Marras. The detailed look was styled with Rupert Sanderson pumps.

‘Carol’ New York Premiere: At first glance you may have thought Cate was wearing a cut-out dress, but her chartreuse-green Lanvin Spring 2016 dress possesses a drape-effect which reveals nude background. While it’s cleaver in construction, I don’t like the dress itself. Even with my misgivings about her wearing all black, I think the Antonio Marras dress would’ve had a greater impact at the premiere. Christian Louboutin Benedetta’ sandals and Lorraine Schwartz diamond and yellow jade triangle earrings accessorized the look.

Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences’ 7th Annual Governors Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences’ 7th Annual Governors Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a roundup of the presenters and guests who attended the 7th annual Governors Awards on Saturday (November 14) in Los Angeles, California.

Cate Blanchett: Looking so very statuesque, the Australian actress wore an Armani Privé black asymmetrical modernistic with black velvet trousers. Her classic, yet modern look was styled with Casadei cut-out sandals.

Saoirse Ronan: The ‘Brooklyn’ actress brought some much needed colour to the event dressed in an Emilia Wickstead Fall 2015 pleated and printed frock styled with Alexander McQueen heels. I love the additional pop of pink to the lips.

Zooey Deschanel: While this Kate Spade New York colour-block fit and flare dress is perfectly in tune with Zooey’s style, I don’t feel it was quite right for this occasion. The look was styled with Wolford tights.

Cate Blanchett In Schiaparelli Couture & Alexander McQueen – ‘Truth’ Fellowship Special Presentation Gala & London Film Festival Awards

Cate Blanchett In Schiaparelli Couture & Alexander McQueen - 'Truth' Fellowship Special Presentation Gala & London Film Festival Awards

Cate Blanchett attended the ‘Truth’ Fellowship special presentation gala during the BFI London Film Festival on Saturday (October 17) in London, England before attending the London Film Festival Awards, where she picked up the BFI Fellowship Award.

‘Truth’ Fellowship Special Presentation Gala: I’m sure your reaction to Cate wearing this Schiaparelli Fall 2015 Couture velvet and floral dress was, “this is more like it”. Cate was back to her regal, breath-taking, you-can’t-touch-this best. This is the wow moment I have been waiting for since she started this promo tour. The look was styled with Roger Vivier ‘Dorsay’ pailettes pumps.

London Film Festival Awards: High with happiness from her first look, my initial reaction to seeing Cate in this Alexander McQueen gown was also positive, but on closer inspection I think the fit is way off around the hips and even worse from the back. This is quite surprising for a McQueen piece.

Cate Blanchett In Proenza Schouler – The Academy Of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences New Members Reception

Cate Blanchett In  Proenza Schouler - The Academy Of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences New Members Reception

Cate Blanchett wore her third black and white look of the day while attending The Academy Of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences new members reception at Winfield House on Wednesday (October 14) in London, England.

Showing a rare slice of skin, the actress wore a Proenza Schouler cut-out dress distinguished by frothy ruffle detailing from the Spring 2016 collection.

While this continues to puts Cate back on track when it comes to interesting looks, I’m still missing that Blanchett wow-factor.

Am I alone, or just expecting too much?

Cate Blanchett In Esteban Cortazar – ‘Carol’ London Film Festival Screening

Cate Blanchett In Esteban Cortazar - 'Carol' London Film Festival Screening

Following her very disappointing showing at the photocall, Cate Blanchett joined Rooney Mara for the screening of ‘Carol’ during the BFI London Film Festival at the Odeon Leicester Square this evening (October 14).

Climbing back to form, the actress dazzled onlookers wearing a black and white cape dress from Esteban Cortazar’s Spring 2016 collection.

The stand-out piece possessed all the drama and intrigue we expect from Cate, but my feeling is some might not be so enamoured.

If that’s the case look at the images below which show that the gown is much more impressive in movement than stationary.

Has anyone else noticed that since promoting this movie Cate has adopted Rooney’s style of only wearing black, white or black and white?
