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.

Weird, other wordly, star trackish??

Dee on

I think she always looks amazing and different. She stands out because she has her own individual style and is always elegant. I also think she has fantastic bone structure, she has that look of the old movie stars e.g. Dietrich etc

rachel b. on

Elda on

Dixie Marie on

PH on

This women is fabulous, she always has it together. Some of these young starlets should take note, meaning the ones that dress like a mess…..

andrea on

she is imo, one of the best dressed ladies hollywood has seen in a while! she can pull off alot

faith on

okay AshleyL, she does look “otherwordly,”– but in a good way. and “weird?”– try mysterious. i ADORE the beige and gold trimmed dress. cate looks amazing, and always carries herself with such class.

AshleyL on

Ok Faith I do not, at all, find her style to be mysterious. Just weird, like I said the first time. And I do not like it at all. She is conservative, bravo to her for that I guess, but I would never wear any of these dresses. And really, I think the very first and very last styles look cheap, even though I’m sure they’re not. And I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again– it’s very strange when people get offended over one’s opinion of a celebrity. They’re not your friend or your family member, they don’t even know you, so quit acting like someone just insulted your best friend.

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.

faith on

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.

Tayme on

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.

nikki on

None of the dresses look very good on her.
