A Cate Blanchett red carpet moment is like a snow leopard sighting — so rare, beautiful and mystifying. But now that awards season is upon us, the Blue Jasmine actress is set to debut a series of daring and flawless fresh off-the-runway looks. And we’re keeping track.
First of all, yay! Cate Blanchett won best lead actress honors for Blue Jasmine at the third annual International Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA) awards on Friday night. Secondly, wow — she looked stunning in a navy Michael Kors dress from the designer’s Spring 2014 collection.
Blanchett looks quite regal in the indigo hue, not to mention the silhouette makes her appear statuesque and curvy. And leave it to Blanchett to avoid one of those embarrassing red carpet shots in which the camera flash — enemy of all things sheer — reveals all. We can see nothing but her fail-safe undergarment, unlike here. She accessorized with gold-embellished blue satin shoes by Roger Vivier and bodyguard-worthy Chopard drop earrings.
