Oscars armani cate blanchet Oscars 2014: Best Dressed   Cate Blanchett In Armani Prive %tag

Who: Best Actress winner Cate Blanchett

Where: At the 86th Academy Awards held in Los Angeles, California

Wearing: A nude gold Armani Prive gown with a tulle skirt, and embroidered with dégradé sequins and Swarovski crystals from the autumn/winter 2013 collection, teamed with Chopard opal and diamond earrings

Verdict: Wow, the Blue Jasmine star looked incredible in this textured beauty of a gown by Armani Prive. The designer wasn’t much of a surprise, but I was surprised by the romantic, floated nature of the gown, I was thinking that she would go for something a little more structured and avant garde. I am definitely not complaining, this Princess dress looked amazing on her, and really photographed all the embroidery really well.

The only thing that made this look not shine as bright as Kate Hudson in Atelier Versace or Lupita Nyong’o in Prada was the nude, champagne hue of the gown, which seemed to be all the stars go-to colour. Stars including Idina Menzel in Reem Acra, her Blue Jasmine co-star Sally Hawkins in Valentino and Portia de Rossi in a Naeem Khan, as well as Jessica Biel in Chanel Couture and Kristin Bell in a Roberto Cavalli all wore the shade. It kind of made Cate’s not as special looking back across all the red carpet images.

Saying that I still love this gown, the mixture of the textures with the romantic floaty silhouette really is gorgeous.

I also love. love, love those statement opal and diamond Chopard earrings – it really made her Hollywood glamour look.

Are you a fan of Cate Blanchett’s Armani Prive gown?

Total Recall: Kate Beckinsale in Giorgio Armani Privé

KateBeckinsaleArmani Total Recall: Kate Beckinsale in Giorgio Armani Privé %tagWho: Kate Beckinsale

Where: At the Hollywood premiere of ‘Total Recall’ at the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles

Wearing: A strapless green and black reptile-print Giorgio Armani Privé Haute Couture gown from the spring/summer 2012 collection, teamed with Lorraine Schwartz black diamond drop earrings

Verdict: So we are all thinking that Kate has got a new stylist right with this dramatic look? Usually Kate seems to go for pretty rather than standout, generally a lot of sparkles, ruffles and occasionally with a hint of sexy - well it seems that Kate totally went for it with her latest red carpet look with this uber-glamorous and incredible gorgeous Armani couture gown.

I am sure for some this dress will be an instant dislike because of the reptile print, but come on don’t you think that adds to the drama of this gown? I love the way the print seems to follow the curves of her body and the green just pops beautifully.

Of course she couldn’t go too wild so we still see her with her trademark tousled ‘do and barley there make-up I think I would have liked to see something a little more edgy, maybe a slicked back bun and smokey eyes. But I do love that she let the dress do the talking and didn’t go crazy with her accessories – the drop earrings and plain black band ring work perfectly.

What do you think of Kate’s dramatic look – love or hate?
