Blondes In Blue Dresses: Cate Blanchett vs. Kate Winslet

01/08/2007 at 12:57 PM ET

Two accomplished actresses, two Golden Globe nominees, two stunning blue dresses but two totally different styles — Cate Blanchett and Kate Winslet hooked up on the red carpet at the 18th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival this weekend in coordinating cobalt stunners that showcased their individual looks. Always on the cutting edge of fashion, Blanchett arrived in a futuristic blue Balenciaga dress with sharp angles and patent leather insets. Winslet, on the other hand, went for simple elegance, wearing a figure-skimming Valentino gown with soft curls and minimal jewelry. We love that both actresses have such signature styles, but we can’t help but compare the two frocks. Tell us: Which dress do you like better? Cate’s futuristic sheath or Kate’s classic gown?

Both dresses and total looks are very beautiful, but I personally prefer the dress Kate (Winslet) is wearing. They both look great in each dress, though, I think each woman knows her body and what she can pull off!

Wow—they both look absolutely stunning. If I’d have to choose, though, I’d pick Winslet’s simple gown but actually, I think both dressses—and both actresses—are winners!

Both wopmen are stunning in these dresses- but I can’t believbe how beautiful ofd a woman Kate Winslet has become!!! I would personally choose Winslet’s dress only becuase I like a more simple look with clean lilnes.

I love both dresses and i love the fact that Cate Blanchett wore nude colored heels, not blue heels, the dress has enough going on she didn’t need to do anything more with it. Although i think they both look great in that color i am going to put Cate B over the top. it’s the shoes.

I think they are both equally beautiful!

I think Cate’s dress is kind of ugly but she wears it well. Kate looks beautiful as always. She always dresses so classy and elagant. I prefer Kate.

Kate Winslet looks absolutely beautiful in that dress! It fits her perfectly and the color is gorgeous. I’m not a huge fan of Cate’s dress, there’s something about it that doesn’t look right. But they are both beautiful women

Always elegant… Kate Winslet.

They both look wonderful. I’m glad to see simple elegance is back. I know Cate’s is not that simple but it has nice clean lines.
