Cate Blanchett In Givenchy – 3rd Annual AACTA Awards

Cate Blanchett In Givenchy - 3rd Annual AACTA Awards

Having attended the AACTA International Awards earlier this month in LA, Cate Blanchett arrived at the 3rd Annual AACTA Awards Ceremony held at The Star on Thursday (January 30) in Sydney, Australia.

Wearing her second Givenchy look this awards season, the Australian actress displayed a little more cleavage than usual, wearing her glitzy sequined mahogany-and-gold Givenchy Spring 2014 sleeveless gown with a plunging neckline, leather trims at the arm openings and waist, and a pleated skirt.

Her stop-and-stare look was styled with gold sandals, silver earrings and a sweeping updo.

I was starting to think Cate was losing her edge, but this is more like the Cate Blanchett I know and love. Edgy, yet feminine and elegant. This is my favourite look from her this awards season.

    I think Kate Hudson wore this dress in an editorial for Harper’s Bazaar US.

    this woman is on her own league. not so much race with her

    I love this dress. The colors, the shaping along the shoulder, the flow of the skirt, it’s artwork. She looks really great.

  4. Carrie January 30, 2014 at 11:30 pm #

    WOW. So unusual – in an amazing way. Gorgeous!

  5. Fiona - Perth January 30, 2014 at 11:12 pm #

    I love that these colours are unexpected. We can never predict what she is going to wear. This gown looked amazing when she walked on stage under lights, it was stunning.

  6. Adele January 30, 2014 at 9:21 pm #

    Simply gorgeous. She is working the hell out of this dress in such effortless way.

  7. Kathy January 30, 2014 at 8:22 pm #

    This dress is a dream. What an elegant but interesting way to incorporate sparkle. It’s refreshing but age-appropriate. BDOTW contender.

  8. Hanna January 30, 2014 at 5:01 pm #

    My fave look of the week but I prefer the Armani Prive she wore to the Globes, it was just gorgeous and such a fashion moment for her.

  9. Clarissa January 30, 2014 at 4:57 pm #

    I’m in lust with the skirt, it’s so different and dramatic (specially in others photos where it’s moving). Her body is insane and although the plunging neckline maybe too low, it’s still tasteful and works nicely with the rest. She looks very beautiful in this. BDOTW for sure.

  10. Rebecca Z January 30, 2014 at 4:35 pm #

    I love the fabric of the dress and I love her hair and makeup. I don’t really like the dress, though, and I don’t think the revealing plunge and armholes are very flattering on her. But, she sells it and the color is spectacular on her.

  11. Lisa January 30, 2014 at 3:56 pm #

    Two word: Greek Goddess. She looks perfect

  12. Charlotte January 30, 2014 at 3:54 pm #

    Stunningly beautiful. She looks like a million bucks and so confident in this. I love that after being a little bit safe for the past weeks, she is again going for more edgy clothes.

    • Riotgurll January 30, 2014 at 6:44 pm #

      +1! Long may the edgy cate reign!

    • Marianne January 31, 2014 at 1:21 am #

      +2, I think the same.

  13. Nat39 January 30, 2014 at 3:43 pm #

    This is also my fave look from her this awards season, and, hands down, BDOTW worthy.

  14. Grace January 30, 2014 at 3:37 pm #

    She has worn almost this entire collection by now and I’m loving it as it is so her style. I don’t know how she manages to look so classy yet super sexy at the same time.

  15. Tatiana January 30, 2014 at 3:32 pm #

    Now this is a show-stopper in every sense of the word. She looks really gorgeous in that dress. I love the color combination and how she keep simple with everything else. My best dressed od the week by far.

  16. from-chitown January 30, 2014 at 2:57 pm #

    On first look I was blown away. The colors are gorgeous and the make up and hair is beautiful. But as I look at it more, I see the fit issues at the bust and the length shud have been a little longer. I know these are minor issues but this is Cate Blanchett we are talking about. Nevertheless, she looks beautful!

  17. Markness January 30, 2014 at 2:43 pm #

    When I saw this collection, I was like WTF? And Kim Kardashian wore a “custom made” look inspired by this collection so I was like “this collection is impossible.” Leave it to Queen Cate to make this look glamorous. I think Riccardo should stick to dressing people like Cate, Madonna and Jessica Chastain. He’s always at his best there. Always glamorous, chic and not trashy.

  18. Anne January 30, 2014 at 1:13 pm #

    I love this from top to bottom! I think if this had been floor-length it would have taken the gown into a too serious direction. As it is, the plunge and the ankle-length keep this edgy and fresh. Perfect makeup and tousled up-do complement, but don’t compete. One of my favorite red carpet looks in 2014 thus far!

  19. Jones19 January 30, 2014 at 12:20 pm #

    Nobody wears Givenchy like queen Kate.

    • Hanna January 30, 2014 at 5:02 pm #

      Yes, it is like she was born to wea couture like this.

  20. Valissa January 30, 2014 at 11:45 am #

    Ahhh I have been waiting patiently for somebody to wear this on the red carpet! I should’ve known that it was going to be Cate and once again she doesn’t disappoint!
    This is gorgeous and the dress is amazing! Up close it might seem a little unflattering around the bust area but it doesn’t ruin the over-all look.

  21. Annel January 30, 2014 at 10:57 am #

    Omg. I love this. She plays edge, elegance and glam so well.

  22. Christine January 30, 2014 at 10:47 am #

    This is exquisite! She looks beyond gorgeous. Definitely a top look!

  23. Pedro January 30, 2014 at 10:32 am #

    That’s what i call perfection!

    BDOTW for sure

  24. SilentVisitor January 30, 2014 at 9:55 am #

    The dress itself is beautiful but the fit is so unflattering around her bust. She needs support….

    • Agi January 30, 2014 at 12:10 pm #


    • manja January 30, 2014 at 12:28 pm #

      +2 my thoughts exactly

  25. Laura January 30, 2014 at 9:27 am #

    Gorgeous. So different. The tones are very ‘outback chic’. Lara Bingle take note!

  26. Charlotte January 30, 2014 at 9:21 am #

    I love the hair and the make up but I realy don’t like the dress.
    Still, she looks great !

  27. Alex January 30, 2014 at 9:12 am #

    Amazing! Wonderful! Long may the Queen reign!

  28. Laura January 30, 2014 at 8:28 am #

    Wow! Amazing! A “stop-and-stare look”, like you say (I like this expression!)And her make up and hair always looks so beautiful!

  29. Alina January 30, 2014 at 8:24 am #

    I don’t find this very flattering, plus I do not like the length of the dress.

    • kane January 30, 2014 at 9:25 am #

      Definitely agree about the length. Wish we wouldn’t be able to see the shoes. Other than that, though, I’m totally on board!

    • Princess Chi Chi January 30, 2014 at 12:07 pm #

      The fit looks off, but i am relatively pleased with the look.

    • Yeliz January 30, 2014 at 5:36 pm #

      ITA with you Alina. The fit is off and I don’t like the length either.

  30. Ramsay January 30, 2014 at 8:19 am #

    Bold, chic and special
    As usual
    I love this

    • Martin January 30, 2014 at 8:23 am #

      Totally agree.

      This is not my favourite look from her this season (that honour belongs to the Armani Prive at the Globes, which I thought balanced the elegant and the edgy – that low-cut back! – quite beautifully). Still, she looks gorgeous.

      • dee January 30, 2014 at 3:54 pm #

        I agree.

    • François BRESMAL January 30, 2014 at 9:06 am #

      I LOVE this too! Cate & Givenchy is a 1000% winning combo

    • Tatiana January 30, 2014 at 3:34 pm #


    • Nat January 30, 2014 at 6:08 pm #

      I agree

    • oksana January 31, 2014 at 4:16 pm #

      agree agree agree
