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?

Cate Blanchett by far! Although they are both beautiful women, Winslet’s looks and dresses are always boring. Where’s the gusto? Where’s the invention? Blanchett is always pushing the envelope & experimenting and everything looks so damn good on her it’s disgusting! The divine Ms. Blanchett is a 100% class act and a true fashion icon! Cate the Great!!!

Oh, and I disagree with Victor. I think Cate B. is THE best actress of our time. Winslet is good but always picks dramatic roles where she relies on the same skills over and over again. Talented yes, but the best? Heck no! Cate owns her in everything! She’s the perfect balance of emotional depth and skill, no one but Streep can match her.
