Cate Blanchett In Giorgio Armani – 2017 Dubai International Film Festival

Cate Blanchett joined Sonam Kapoor and Olga Kurylenko for the opening night gala of the 14th annual Dubai International Film Festival this evening (December 6).

Armani’s classic approach to femininity weaves its magic into this abstract floral print halter gown.

The riot of colours really emboldens the look, but I also love how the fringed layered skirt is definitely worth a twirl, and how the hidden slip pockets allow Cate’s pose to radiant an air of nonchalance.

There wasn’t much love for Cate’s McQueen look at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards, so how does this look fare?

    A great look. Love the print.

    What a fabulous gown and how great does she look!! Love the colors and the perfect fit of the gown. Definitely a BDOTW!

    I thought this year (for once) she won’t make it on my BDOTY list – but at the last moment she gets her place on it – this is incredibly chic

    Cate and Armani. What’s not to like.

    I love it. I’m a sucker for striking colours lately, and she looks gorgeous. She owns a powerful dress like nobody else.

      A heavenly union, indeed.

    This is an ugly dress to me. The pattern is waaaay too much. I do like the actual style of the dress though.

    It’s been a very long time since I was actually excited by one of Cate’s outfits. This got me excited! Such a fun and interesting dress. The colours are gorgeous too!

    Anyone who thought that Cate Blanchett has lost her red carpet mojo would be breathing a sigh of relief upon seeing this Giorgio Armani offering!! The multi-color printed halter gown screams opulent elegance and what a way for Queen Cate to regain her fashion queen reign!! SLAY Queen SLAY!! Cate Blanchett + Giorgio Armani = RED CARPET PERFECTION!!

    Cate + Armani can do no wrong

    Now THIS is classic Cate! What a gorgeous look and proof that she and Armani are a match made in fashion heaven! BDOTW worthy…

  13. charlotte December 7, 2017 at 03:40 #

    Gorgeous,that’s what I am talking about

  14. CreoleLady December 7, 2017 at 01:27 #

    Yes. Armani & Blanchett. Reunited and it looks so good.

  15. Jerusa December 7, 2017 at 00:52 #

    Oh my ! Queen Cate, just wow, perfect! Another fashion home run for her

  16. Susie December 6, 2017 at 23:51 #

    She’s baaaaaaack!!!! The dress is striking and modern. Those colors really pop and her makeup is perfect.

  17. Martin December 6, 2017 at 23:19 #

    She. Is. Back. THIS is what I have been waiting for. Cate looks radiant, the dress is a dream and she pulls off what on others might have have been a complicated and overly fussy dress. Definitely one of the BDOTW.

    Fabulous dress and it fits like a dream. She looks perfect.

  19. JHH December 6, 2017 at 23:07 #

    I am thrilled to see Cate looking so great. I had sadly relegated her to my “most disappointing in 2017” list but with this dress, she is back in prime form. The colors are great and the fit is perfect.

  20. Carla December 6, 2017 at 23:00 #

    Now, this is elegance!!! Stunning! She is back to her best 🙂

  21. Pheephee December 6, 2017 at 22:33 #

    Its super interesting. I totally love it! it looks so gorgeous on her and fits perfectly.
    Love her hair and makeup with it.
    Another BDOTW potential? Theres a lot this week.

  22. Maria F. December 6, 2017 at 22:14 #

    gorgeous. Great colours and interesting play between the weaving and the fringe.

  23. Kimma December 6, 2017 at 22:13 #

    Stunning gown and the colour palette is perfect for her. Great to see her ending the year on a high note.

  24. Chris December 6, 2017 at 22:08 #

    Ah, what would this year have been without a major Cate/Armani moment?! LOVE it, obviously. Such a striking look.
    And what a well dressed film festival.
