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?

Kate W. looks beautiful, while Cate B, looks like a fashion don’t.

Cate Blanchett’s dress is far from my style, but I do have to admire her risk. I very much prefer Kate Winslet. I’ve always wished to have her dresses; she pics the most amazing gowns that fit her frame to perfection.

I like Kate Winslets but they both wore dresses that fit their bodies the best because their bodies are COMPLETLEY opposite. Cate is stick thin (and has muscle tone) and Kate Winslet is very womanly curvy. They both look great but I love Kate Winslet the best.

I like the hair/dress color combo on both.

I love Cate B.’s dress. The v-neck is gorgous and really suits her. She looks tall and bold. Kate’s long blue dress is just a bit boring, really. I don’t like the neckline on her and there’s just no pizzazz. They both look lovely, but I vote for Kate B. all the way.

Both look gorgeous, but I like Kate Winslet’s dress better- it is softer and more feminine. I do love the way Cate Blanchett wears her dress with the nude heels and minimal jewelry and makeup. Kate is such a classic beauty!
