Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Best Dressed Of The Week - Cate Blanchett In Armani Privé & Eddie Redmayne In Tom Ford

Even though Miss Nina Dobrev gave her a good fight, Queen Cate Blanchett won the majority of your votes for Best Dressed this week.

Cate and Armani Privé has always been a winning combination, and her red dress, which she wore to the AACTA Awards, was no different.

When it came to the menswear poll, that was equally predictable as the no one was able to outdo Eddie Redmayne in his chambray Tom Ford suit.

Until Ryan Gosling and Andrew Garfield come back to the red carpet, methinks Eddie will continue to dominate this poll with his snazzy style and ability to pick a suit outside of the black, grey and navy colour palette favoured by most.

Cate Blanchett In Armani Privé - 2nd Annual AACTA Awards

Being a night owl, it can often take me a while to get up in the morning, so I peruse Getty Images from my iPad to give me inspiration to get up.

You can imagine that I jumped up like my butt was on fire when I saw Cate Blanchett on the red carpet for the 2nd Annual AACTA Awards held at The Star in Sydney, Australia this evening.

It has been a while since she graced the red carpet wearing Armani Privé, so I’m ecstatic to see her wearing a look from the Spring 2009 collection, which I have always noted was made for Cate.

Her fiery red Asian-inspired bold-shoulder gown, covered in shimmering red square lacquer sequins with a black trim, was styled with some pretty uninspiring footwear.

Considering this look slams every look from the SAG Awards, she gets a free pass.

Instead of the black tasselled detail at the waist, Cate opted for black drop earrings to spice up her hawt look.

Flawless makeup, which gave her a rosy glow, and a bun with side-swept bangs provided the finishing touches.

Needless to say, even with those shoes, this look will be added to my BDOTY list.

It has been a great week for Cate Blanchett, but if you could put just one look up for BDOTW which would it be?

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 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.

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.
