Cate Blanchett In Christian Dior Couture – ‘Blue Jasmine’ Deauville American Film Festival Premiere

Cate Blanchett In Christian Dior Couture - 'Blue Jasmine' Deauville American Film Festival Premiere

Cate Blanchett attended the premiere of ‘Blue Jasmine’ held during the 2013 Deauville American Film Festival in Deauville, France on Saturday evening.

This is Cate’s second red carpet appearance wearing a look from the Fall 2013 Couture collections, following the opening ceremony on Friday evening.

On this occasion she selected an exquisite Christian Dior gown with colourful embroidered details.

As beautiful as the gown is, I did have some issues with it.

Firstly, it didn’t photograph all that well in a few pictures. This leads me to my second issue, which is that the gown may have been just an inch or two too long.

On the model the gown barely touches the ground, preventing it from looking like a tent on her.

Is this nearly perfect for you? Or does Cate blow you away in this gown?

Cate Blanchett In Armani Privé – Deauville American Film Festival Opening Ceremony

Cate Blanchett In Armani Privé - Deauville American Film Festival Opening Ceremony

Cate Blanchett attended the opening ceremony of the 2013 Deauville American Film Festival in Deauville, France this evening.

The Australian actress glided down the red carpet wearing a nude Armani Privé Fall 2013 lightly embellished lace coat-dress, which has been slightly modified from the runway as the silk skirt is shorter than the coat.

Her soft, elegant look is in total contrast to the edgy fashion forward Christopher Kane frock she wore earlier this week, which many of you didn’t like.

Initially I was craving a pop of colour, but on reflection this may have been a distraction much like that feathered detail the model wore with this look.

It great to see her back wearing Armani. The house where she belongs. A simple updo and satin Armani Privé ankle strap pumps completed her look.

Does the Queen meet with your approval on this occasion, or is the look too one note for you?

Salma Hayek In Stella McCartney – 38th Deauville American Film Festival Closing Ceremony

Salma Hayek attended the 38th Deauville American Film Festival Closing Ceremony on Saturday night.

For the event the actress chose to wear a gown by British designer Stella McCartney.

Salma looked her stunning self on the red carpet, but I’m not sure everything about this dress works.

While the skirt is a great length – showing offer her slim ankles and peep-toe platforms – the reverse scoop bodice seems to jolt. Perhaps it’s because I’m so used to seeing her enhancing rather than hiding her cleavage?

I love the pop of colour provided by her aqua Judith Leiber East/West crocodile clutch and Graziela earrings.

Astrid Bergès-Frisbey In Chanel – 38th Deauville American Film Festival Opening Ceremony

Astrid Bergès-Frisbey attended the 38th Deauville American Film Festival Opening Ceremony last week.

The multi-faceted actress wore a sea green Chanel dress from the Resort 2013 collection.

It’s a look that’s sure to divide the critics. Some will use words such as toilet brush and jewellery box ballerina, while others will conjure comparisons to modern-day princesses and childhood fantasy characters.

I’m vacillating between the two. I do, however, love the strappy metallic sandals and her soft curls.

Her pretty pink bustier dress with a gathered skirt was styled with matching pink platform pumps, with dazzling jewels including a spectacular cocktail ring.

A side-parted modern updo completed her breathtaking look.
