Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Cate Blanchett In Armani Privé - Giorgio Armani Celebrates Martin Scorsese And Paolo Sorrentino

Cate Blanchett attended the Giorgio Armani special celebration honoring Martin Scorsese and Paolo Sorrentino hosted by Roberta Armani at the Giorgio Armani Flagship Boutique on Friday (February 28) in Beverly Hills, California.

This was the Australian actress’ second Couture gown of the evening.

For this occasion she wore a shimmering black Armani Prive Fall 2012 jumpsuit with colourful beadwork that I has been on my red carpet wish list for a while.

Oozing charm, elegant and sophistication, the neckline was slightly modified which I found surprising considering her Givenchy gown at the AACTA Awards had a very deep plunge.

Opting for a flawless dewy glow, she completed her look with an updo and black clutch.

Of her two looks, this is my favourite. Which Cate Couture look do you favour?

Cate Blanchett In Valentino Couture - Rodeo Drive Walk Of Style Awards Ceremony

Cate Blanchett attended the Rodeo Drive Walk of Style Awards Ceremony held yesterday evening (February 28) at Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills, California.

The ‘Blue Jasmine’ actress rose to the stylish occasion by opting for a taupe tasselled Valentino Spring 2014 Couture dress.

This was a dress that skewed the glitz and drama of typical award ceremony dresses and instead offered a whole new take with its exquisite craftsmanship.

Just like the runway, Cate kept the styling minimal. While I can imagine this being worn with flats and bohemian jewellery, Cate added polish with a chic up do and strong eye-make-up.  My only change would have been to add some sparkling jewellery such as an ear cuff or cocktail ring.

To me it doesn’t necessarily have serious wow factor but it does have some sort of ethereal quality and Cate’s glowing complexion really gives it a lift.

I always find a delight and sense of excitement in Cate’s sartorial choices and this just proves how different her style is. But what do you think?

Cate Blanchett In Alexander McQueen - BAFTAs 2014Cate Blanchett elegantly descended on the 2014 BAFTAs, hosted Sunday (February 16) at The Royal Opera House in London, England.

The ‘Blue Jasmine’ star and Leading Actress nominee stunned in a sleek, jet-black Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2014 short-sleeve column gown, emblazoned with an exploded, silver floral print at the sides.

Injecting a touch of quirk into the look was a silver Chopard statement necklace, featuring a cluster of branches and birds.

A loosely swept-back updo and fresh, barely-there makeup ensured that this moody-chic entrance stayed on the good side of the drama club. Do you agree?

Who Wore Gucci Better Cate Blanchett or Paz Vega

Back in September, Cate Blanchett attended a portrait session as part of Milan Fashion Week Womenswear Spring/Summer 2014, wearing a rich bordeaux Gucci Fall 2013 long-sleeve dress style with gold Christian Louboutin ‘Sylvette’ sandals.

Spanish beauty Paz Vega wore the same dress to Gucci’s private screening of James Franco’s documentary film ‘The Director’ last month during Couture Fashion Week.

Opting for a wavy do, she accessorized with nude Gucci pumps and a satin Gucci bag.

I almost went with Paz on this one, but, sadly, I can’t get on board with that satin bag.

Cate Blanchett In Prada -  86th Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon

Cate Blanchett joined Sandra Bullock, Amy Adams and Lupita Nyong’o on the red carpet for the 86th Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Monday (February 10) in Beverly Hills, California.

The actress’ space age metallic silver Prada Fall 2013 asymmetrical, zipper accented dress was worn without the runway sweater and black velvet waistband for a much cleaner, elegant finish.

Only accessorizing with a Christian Louboutin ‘So Kate’ pumps, the actress swept her hair back into a chic bun.

I’m sure the decision to go silver instead of gold was a very deliberate one. No one wants to turn up to an Academy Awards function looking like the statue.

Cate Blanchett In Proenza Schouler - 'Monument Men' New York Premiere

Cate Blanchett attended ‘The Monuments Men’ premiere held at Ziegfeld Theater on Tuesday (February 4) in New York City.

After her cleavage-baring Givenchy gown from last week, Cate opted for a high neckline, wearing a Proenza Schouler Pre-Fall 2014 long-sleeved drop-waist sheer organza overlay dress with beading throughout.

I love that she can seamlessly go from one extreme to another.

This look is both edgy and elegant, with neat styling courtesy of her Giuseppe Zanotti pumps, Chopard diamond stud earrings and a slick side-swept bun.
