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?

Following the photocall, Rooney Mara attended the screening of ‘Carol’ during the BFI London Film Festival at the Odeon Leicester Square this evening (October 14).

Garnering a pretty feminine silhouette that instantly imparts evening elegance, the actress wore a ruffled fine lace knitted nude gown from Alexander McQueen’s Spring 2015.

We are used to her serving up romance in an edgy, gothic manner, but on this occasion she captured the mood in the most simple and sensual way.

Cate Blanchett joined Rooney Mara for the photocall for their latest movie,’ Carol’ during the BFI London Film Festival at Soho Hotel this afternoon (October 14).

Much like Rooney, I was left bitterly disappointed by Cate’s red carpet look.

Givenchy silk lace PJs, a black blazer and limp hair? It’s like she just couldn’t be bothered to make an effort.

Rooney Mara attended the photocall for her latest movie,’ Carol’ during the BFI London Film Festival at Soho Hotel this afternoon (October 14).

I’m sure you went the same process of feeling a sense of joy upon seeing the star wearing this Giambattista Valli Resort 2016 ruffle accented dress, only for those feelings to be stamped upon when you scrolled down to the shoes.

This kinda takes me back to the bad old days when Tribtoos and Maniacs black pumps ruled the red carpet.

In what universe do those black pumps go with that dress?

Rachel Weisz attended ‘The Lobster’ gala premiere during the BFI London Film Festival at Vue Leicester Square on Tuesday (October 13) in London, England.

The actress was truly captivating in her Alexander McQueen Resort 2016 daisy print gown which beautifully treads the line between elegance and allure.

Styled with Tiffany & Co. jewels she completed her look with a classic updo.

Saoirse Ronan In Lanvin – ‘Brooklyn’ London Film Festival Screening

Saoirse Ronan attended the screening of ‘Brooklyn’ during the BFI London Film Festival at Odeon Leicester Square on Monday (October 12).

While I love this fluid Lanvin Resort 2016 ruffle sleeve gown featuring a crystal embroidered neckline to which she added a selection of flower necklaces, the earrings were overkill.

I really applaud this effort which sees her step outside her comfort zone, but this look had “take one thing off” written all over it.

Do you agree?
