August 31, 2018 Premiere, Runway To Red Carpet

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.

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

    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.

  5. Vuong September 1, 2018 at 4:11 pm #

    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!!

  10. Jimmy September 1, 2018 at 11:32 am #

    Absolutely stunning in every way! She eclipses everyone!

  11. VG September 1, 2018 at 7:59 am #

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

  12. zk September 1, 2018 at 6:52 am #

    BDOTY contender for sure

  13. Jerusa Herrera September 1, 2018 at 3:48 am #

    Wow wow wow wow wow is just wow breathtaking, beautiful, wow! BDOTY. Queen Cate

  14. barbara September 1, 2018 at 3:41 am #

  15. Isabela September 1, 2018 at 2:42 am #

    OMG, so good! She looks amazing!

  16. DM September 1, 2018 at 2:28 am #

    My front runner for BDOTY.

    Wow ??

  17. MG September 1, 2018 at 2:26 am #

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

  18. Kathy September 1, 2018 at 2:23 am #

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

  19. jane September 1, 2018 at 1:39 am #

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

  20. Cássia Pereira September 1, 2018 at 1:01 am #

    She can do no wrong! Amazing!!!

  21. olga September 1, 2018 at 12:44 am #

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

  22. CreoleLady September 1, 2018 at 12:29 am #

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

  23. jessica August 31, 2018 at 11:32 pm #

    WOW, BDOTY worthy!

  24. TinaL August 31, 2018 at 11:16 pm #

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

  25. Alexandra August 31, 2018 at 11:12 pm #

    BDOTY! Perfection.

  26. AnderBoBo August 31, 2018 at 11:02 pm #


  27. justme August 31, 2018 at 10:59 pm #

    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.

  28. Glenda August 31, 2018 at 10:24 pm #

    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 3:43 am #

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

  29. Nadine Hughey August 31, 2018 at 10:06 pm #

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

  30. Hailey August 31, 2018 at 9:52 pm #

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

  31. Chris August 31, 2018 at 9:49 pm #

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

  32. Phee August 31, 2018 at 9:33 pm #

    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.

  33. Aocc August 31, 2018 at 9:19 pm #

    Two BDOTY in one night!

  34. Memo August 31, 2018 at 9:08 pm #

    Totally regal look, BDOTY candidate

  35. Hannah August 31, 2018 at 9:07 pm #

    Breathtaking! I can’t stop looking at her.

  36. Athena August 31, 2018 at 8:45 pm #

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

  37. argentina August 31, 2018 at 8:41 pm #

    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.

  38. TeaAtTwo August 31, 2018 at 8:24 pm #

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

  39. Leandra August 31, 2018 at 8:21 pm #

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

    • mm August 31, 2018 at 8:56 pm #

      LOL, love your comment and i agree.

      i wonder if they coordinated the feathers?

  40. Kimma August 31, 2018 at 8:19 pm #

    Breathtaking! Definitely BDOTW and on my BDOTY list.

  41. Stephanie August 31, 2018 at 8:18 pm #

    its great of course but quite “simple”

  42. Saudin August 31, 2018 at 8:12 pm #

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

    • meme August 31, 2018 at 8:34 pm #


  43. Trinny August 31, 2018 at 8:07 pm #

    My jaw is on the FLOOR. She looks stunning!

  44. Carolina August 31, 2018 at 7:59 pm #

    Flawless.Best dressed so far.

  45. Vizual Ninja August 31, 2018 at 7:57 pm #

    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 8:02 pm #

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

    • brat August 31, 2018 at 8:24 pm #

      +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 12:04 am #

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

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

  46. meme August 31, 2018 at 7:57 pm #

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

    • Fiona-Brasil August 31, 2018 at 9:44 pm #

      + 1

  47. pawel August 31, 2018 at 7:52 pm #

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

    • Real Nat39 August 31, 2018 at 8:00 pm #

      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 12:55 am #

      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.

  48. Caroline August 31, 2018 at 7:51 pm #

    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!

  49. Tina Marie August 31, 2018 at 7:49 pm #

    Now that is a movie star!

  50. Real Nat39 August 31, 2018 at 7:49 pm #

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