Cate Blanchett In Givenchy – Harper’s Bazaar Woman Of The Year Awards 2013

Cate Blanchett In Givenchy - Harper's Bazaar Woman Of The Year Awards 2013

Oscar front-runner and the star of Woody Allen’s acclaimed film ‘Blue Jasmine’, Cate Blanchett, who also appears on the cover of the December issue of Harper’s Bazaar, was named International Actress of the Year at the Harper’s Bazaar Woman Of The Year Awards.

The Australian actress looked stunning at the event, which was held at Claridges in London yesterday evening, wearing a Givenchy Spring 2014 walnut-coloured crepe jersey dress with embroidered cuffs which, I will admit, didn’t have much red-carpet appeal on the runway, but the beauty of Cate is that everything she touches turns to red-carpet gold.

Keeping accessories to a bare minimum, she styled her look with nude Givenchy sandals and a gold necklace which cascaded down the open V-back of her dress.

Cate Blanchett In Armani Privé – 51st New York Film Festival Gala Tribute To Cate Blanchett

Cate Blanchett In Armani Privé - 51st New York Film Festival Gala Tribute To Cate Blanchett

The New York Film Festival honoured Cate Blanchett with a gala tribute for her significant artistic contributions to film culture, held at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center in New York City yesterday evening.

The Australian actress wore her second nude Armani Prive dress, but this crinoline-lace frock with a plunging neckline was custom-made.

I really love the dress – it’s nice to see Cate do sexy for a change – but I really wish it was in another colour. I know nude was the colour palette of the Fall 2013 collection, but I feel slightly fatigued by it already.

Perhaps the nude shoes are preventing me from totally loving this look.

Cate Blanchett In Prabal Gurung – Beauty in Wonderland

Cate Blanchett In Prabal Gurung - Beauty in Wonderland

Following her portrait session earlier in the day, Cate Blanchett attended the Beauty in Wonderland exhibition in Milan, Italy alongside Blake Lively.

The Australian actress wore a fanciful look from Prabal Gurung’s Resort 2014 collection.

Her tri-colour red-black-and-white drop-waist frock with an embroidered degrade ostrich-feather skirt was styled with safe black Roger Vivier peep-toes, glossy lips, a simple updo and silver jewels.

After her conservative look earlier in the day, it was refreshing to see her having more fun with fashion for this evening event.

Cate Blanchett In Gucci – Milan Fashion Week Portraits

Cate Blanchett In Gucci - Milan Fashion Week Portraits

Cate Blanchett attended a portrait session as part of Milan Fashion Week Womenswear Spring/Summer 2014 held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Milan, Italy.

The actress, who was fresh off the plane from London, wore a rich plum Gucci Fall 2013 long-sleeved dress, which she styled with gold Christian Louboutin ‘Sylvette’ sandals and diamond earrings.

Rather than match her lip colour to her dress, the actress opted for a light-pink shimmering lip colour, with her unteased hair side-parted and swept behind her ears.

Cate Blanchett In Givenchy Couture – ‘Blue Jasmine’ London Premiere

Cate Blanchett In Givenchy Couture - 'Blue Jasmine' London Premiere

Cate Blanchett attended the UK premiere of ‘Blue Jasmine’ held at the Odeon West End this evening in London.

As I hoped, the Australian actress did wear couture, selecting a look from Givenchy’s Fall 2012 collection, which was full of both drama and intrigue.

Her black cold-shoulder gown with a halter neckline, gold-embroidered details and cape back took a while to grow on me as my issue was – and still is – that it sits too low around the arms, rendering them useless.

But the gown is not supposed to be functional; it’s supposed to be a work of art, so on that basis you can’t help but be floored by it and admire how she manages to pull it off.

Cate Blanchett In Tom Ford – Tom Ford Spring 2014 Show

Cate Blanchett In Tom Ford - Tom Ford Spring 2014 Show

Cate Blanchett was spotted leaving Tom Ford’s Spring 2014 presentation in London yesterday evening.

She was of course decked out in the designer’s threads, selecting one of the more sombre pieces from his Fall 2013 collection, donning a chic black skirt suit with velvet trims which she styled with black tights and black pumps.

The Australian actress isn’t just in town for London Fashion Week; later this evening she will be taking to the red carpet in Leicester Square for the ‘Blue Jasmine’ premiere – hopefully the rain will have stopped by then.

I’m hoping for a couture look this evening. If she does decide to go for a Tom Ford Spring 2014 look, I hope she selects Look 25; everything else from this collection is too revealing or too short for the elegant star.
