Cate Blanchett In Armani Privé – ‘A Star Is Born’ Venice Film Festival Premiere

Cate Blanchett In Armani Privé - 'A Star Is Born' Venice Film Festival Premiere

Lady Gaga wasn’t the only one serving up feathers on the red carpet tonight (August 31) for the Venice Film Festival premiere for ‘A Star Is Born’, Cate Blanchett was too.

For the few of you who surprisingly didn’t like Gaga’s look, I’m sure this refined offering by Armani Prive will be more palatable.

I want to say this look is regal, but even our royals could never looks this good – sadly.

Captivating and covetable from the moment she stepped onto the red carpet, this velvet gown was always destined to charm.

The romantic plumes frame the look beautifully, but it’s the diamond Chopard earrings which complement the detail on her gown which really ignites the look for me.

    Just can’t quite shake seeing a swan here, but boy, this is going on the BDOTY longlist, definitely shortlist, probably top10, maybe even top3. We’ll see that one again at the end of the year.

    This dress is ugly, on both her and the model. I’m baffled by everyone raving over it.

  4. Vuong September 1, 2018 at 16:11 #

    My jaw dropped the moment I saw this dress coming down the runway. Now it has dropped again!!! BDOTY!!!
    Giorgio Armani is the master of haute couture! I’m rooting for more dresses from this collection on the red carpet!

    Im on the floor crying. This is so beautiful, we dont deserve her! <333

    You mentioning royals, plus the fact that I watched a Princess Diana documentary yesterday made me think that Blanchett here reminds me so much of the late Lady D. The way she carries herself and the dress are giving me flashbacks of the velvet dress Diana wore when she danced with John Travolta.

    Wow! This is epic. Major!!!

    Anyone of you who are sick of Cate’s all suit run during her Ocean 8’s promo tour, I share the sense of relief with you all! Cate Blanchett + Armani Prive = a match made in fashion heaven!! She’s oozing classic elegance and charming sophistication like no one else. The face, the pose, the aura ,this is EVERYTHING!! Only Queen can surpass a Queen, and Cate Blanchett is not your ordinary Queen. Absolutely phenomenal and definitely JAW-DROPPING, BDOTY nominee no doubt!! That’s how you PLAY and SLAY, well done Queen Cate!! We’re all not worthy indeed!!

  9. Jimmy September 1, 2018 at 11:32 #

    Absolutely stunning in every way! She eclipses everyone!

  10. VG September 1, 2018 at 07:59 #

    This is beyond!! So much better than anything she wore at Cannes. Welcome back Cate!!

  11. zk September 1, 2018 at 06:52 #

    BDOTY contender for sure

  12. Jerusa Herrera September 1, 2018 at 03:48 #

  13. barbara September 1, 2018 at 03:41 #

  14. Isabela September 1, 2018 at 02:42 #

    OMG, so good! She looks amazing!

  15. DM September 1, 2018 at 02:28 #

    My front runner for BDOTY.

    Wow 🙌🏽

  16. MG September 1, 2018 at 02:26 #

    I’m sorry Cate this is how you are supposed to slay. Do ever do that suit/recycle nonsense again I beg you!

  17. Kathy September 1, 2018 at 02:23 #

    My heart just skipped a beat. Long may she reign.

  18. jane September 1, 2018 at 01:39 #

    You can always depend on Cate and Aishwarya to bring the top 2 looks of the year!

  19. Cássia Pereira September 1, 2018 at 01:01 #

    She can do no wrong! Amazing!!!

  20. olga September 1, 2018 at 00:44 #

    This is a stunning gown and I think no one else could have worn it with such confident elegance. Breathtaking!

  21. CreoleLady September 1, 2018 at 00:29 #

    Blanchette and Armani, yes, forever and always. Black velvet, ok, a pass with that fab fit. Dislike the feathers and hair.

  22. jessica August 31, 2018 at 23:32 #

    WOW, BDOTY worthy!

  23. TinaL August 31, 2018 at 23:16 #

    THIS is how you do it — regal, elegant and classy! BDOTY list checked.

  24. Alexandra August 31, 2018 at 23:12 #

    BDOTY! Perfection.

  25. AnderBoBo August 31, 2018 at 23:02 #


  26. justme August 31, 2018 at 22:59 #

    Ok, THIS is stunning. I felt as if I was in the Twilight zone in the last Gaga posts.

    Imo, when it comes to feathers, parsimony is key to make a beautiful impact and Cate got that.

  27. Glenda August 31, 2018 at 22:24 #

    I love, love, LOVE Cate’s style but, if I’m being completely honest, she hasn’t served up a look this irresistible, breathtaking and overall superlative-worthy since, say, the Carol days. She looks DIVINE.

    Not to be cheesy but … you can literally knock me down with one of those feathers.

    • Susie September 1, 2018 at 03:43 #

      Totally agree. I think this is her best look in a long time. Straight to BDOTY.

  28. Nadine Hughey August 31, 2018 at 22:06 #

    Wow, what a movie star moment. (Regardless of other royal figures, real or imagined.)

  29. Hailey August 31, 2018 at 21:52 #

    I am blown away. This is truly breathtaking BDOTY for me!

  30. Chris August 31, 2018 at 21:49 #

    She looks amazing, BDOTY worthy for sure. Better than most of her Cannes looks, actually (expect for the Katrantzou).

  31. Phee August 31, 2018 at 21:33 #

    NOW THIS is a movie star queen!! BDOTY worthy for sure.
    She looks absolutely breathtaking, so very stunningly regal.
    this is how I imagine true movie stars to always look lol.

  32. Aocc August 31, 2018 at 21:19 #

    Two BDOTY in one night!

  33. Memo August 31, 2018 at 21:08 #

    Totally regal look, BDOTY candidate

  34. Hannah August 31, 2018 at 21:07 #

    Breathtaking! I can’t stop looking at her.

  35. Athena August 31, 2018 at 20:45 #

    well, I was convinced that no one could top Lady Gaga but Cate pulled it off!
    Both are going straight to my BDOTY list

  36. argentina August 31, 2018 at 20:41 #

    I’ve always loved her style and after a full season of suits, that I actually don’t mind, this comes as a punch in my face. I’m in awe. She looks absolutely stunning. Goosebumps all over me.

  37. TeaAtTwo August 31, 2018 at 20:24 #

    After a mostly dreary succession of outfits from her since Cannes this is divine.

  38. Leandra August 31, 2018 at 20:21 #

    This is the embodiement of classicism and spectacularity. Absolutely divine.

    • mm August 31, 2018 at 20:56 #

      LOL, love your comment and i agree.

      i wonder if they coordinated the feathers?

  39. Kimma August 31, 2018 at 20:19 #

    Breathtaking! Definitely BDOTW and on my BDOTY list.

  40. Stephanie August 31, 2018 at 20:18 #

    its great of course but quite “simple”

  41. Saudin August 31, 2018 at 20:12 #

    I am deceased! We are honestly not worthy of this slayage….

    • meme August 31, 2018 at 20:34 #


  42. Trinny August 31, 2018 at 20:07 #

    My jaw is on the FLOOR. She looks stunning!

  43. Carolina August 31, 2018 at 19:59 #

    Flawless.Best dressed so far.

  44. Vizual Ninja August 31, 2018 at 19:57 #

    BDOTY, my favourite look from the festival so far and maybe for the entire year, hard to imagine anyone topping this. She looks so glamorous and perfect!

    • James August 31, 2018 at 20:02 #

      Totally agree! She is my best dressed of the year so far! An absolute stunner!

    • brat August 31, 2018 at 20:24 #

      +1 nobody does regal Elegance like her. Gaga was allowed her big moment but Queen Cate is the best-dressed of this festival so far.

      • Christine September 1, 2018 at 00:04 #

        Exactly!!!!! HANDS DOWN THE BEST OF THE FESTIVAL!!!!!.

        CHILLS!!! This is what I AM TALKING ABOUT. She looks so GLAMOROUS!!!

  45. meme August 31, 2018 at 19:57 #

    Absolutely gorgeous. Classic elegance and Old Hollywood. Cate and Armani at their finest. Amazing.

    • Fiona-Brasil August 31, 2018 at 21:44 #

      + 1

  46. pawel August 31, 2018 at 19:52 #

    OMFG, this might be one of her best red carpet looks, certainly better than ones from Cannes!

    • Real Nat39 August 31, 2018 at 20:00 #

      This is def. such a gorgeous look for Cate, but her Mary Katrantzou from Cannes is a bit higher on my list in terms of being a bit more special/unusual 🙂

    • TeaAtTwo September 1, 2018 at 00:55 #

      I think the Mary Katrantzou and Iris Van Harpern gowns in Cannes are still my favourite designs she’s worn this year but this is stunning.

  47. Caroline August 31, 2018 at 19:51 #

    Oh my god. BDOTY. Mr. Armani thank you for constantly being the true and only king of the red carpet year after year. And welcome back Cate!

  48. Tina Marie August 31, 2018 at 19:49 #

    Now that is a movie star!

  49. Real Nat39 August 31, 2018 at 19:49 #

    Gorgeous, refined, she is outstanding! Amazingly beautiful fit and commendable carriage from Cate as usual – another contender for BDOTW.
