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?

I think Kate Winslet looks much better in her blue dress. Cate Blanchett’s dress’ style kind of look like a 99 cent bag that holds potatoes. They are bothe beautiful, but i choose Kate.

KATE WINSLET!!! does she ever put a foot wrong, well clearly not in this case, the traditional feminine look always wins for me. Although Cate B look beautiful also.

Kate looks classically elegant in her longer dress.

I love both of them, but I prefer Cate’s dress. Although Kate’s dress really complements her figure, I tend to stick with Cate’s ensemble because I just love how she can pull off the edgy, daring looks so flawlessly. It’s a risky dress but she pairs it well with the shoes and the simple hair and makeup. Bravo to both of them though! They look absolutely stunning.
