What's Cate Blanchett's Red Carpet Personality?

02/20/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

Nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Notes on a Scandal, Cate Blanchett is the Chameleon of this year’s award season.

Signature Look: Blanchett can pull off a variety of styles, from cutting edge to classic. But two things remain constant: impeccable fit and unexpected detail.

Favorite Designers: Blanchett relies on red carpet big guns like Valentino and Dior but sprinkles in edgy designers such as Rodarte and Alexander McQueen. Unique shoes from Roger Vivier and Armani Prive (diamond platforms!) complete her looks.

What She Will Wear: Instead of participating in the Oscars dress derby, the star usually works exclusively with one designer, and this year the word is it’s Armani Prive.

She always looks great – even when “pushing the envelope” a tad.

Cate is my favorite on the red carpet. She has a unique style and she always looks STUNNING.

what??! i’m not related to cate blanchett?? wow, AshleyL, thanks for clueing me in! and for the record i also think it’s strange when people defend celebrities like they know them personally. i wasn’t offended by your opinions at all. i was just countering them with my own. and actually i thought it was interesting that our views were completely opposite; and thought that using your words against mine would make for a good comment. but if you want to play amateur psychologist, and read my comments as me being a deluded fan who took your critique personally, then so be it.

Bravo! I love all four of these dresses. Cate is such a classic beauty. My favorite is the 3rd dress. That dress, the hair…she looks flawless. Not only is it great to see a celeb have such great style, but it’s more wonderful to see such a talented actress.

None of the dresses look very good on her.
