Who: Cate Blanchett
Where: At the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards held at the Star Event Centre in Sydney, Australia
Wearing: A red tapering double-breasted Giorgio Armani Privé gown featuring flared sleeves, embroidered all over with tiny red square lacquer sequins and a black trim from the spring/summer 2009 collection, teamed with black shoes and black drop earrings
Verdict: I have missed Cate Blanchett from the award season red carpet so it was nice to see her at Australia’s answer to the BAFTAS wearing this gorgeous Asian-inspired gown.
This gown is full on drama with the bold shoulders and flared hemline, full on glamour with the red shimming sequins, and full of sexy with the plunging neckline - Cate looks incredible.
We haven’t had a great Armani Privé gown this award season so it was nice to see this beauty and it gives me hope that this look will make stylists call in other pieces for the Oscars. Do you remember when Anne Hathaway wore that gorgeous gold number? I want to see more of that!!!
Do you rate Cate’s red gown?
