You’d hardly expect to see Cate Blanchett ditch her edgy wardrobe for jumpers and elastic-waist pants while pregnant, and the Elizabeth: The Golden Age star is definitely not disappointing. While promoting the film in Australia this week, the star turned up in a beaded colorblock Dries van Noten dress and riding boots to a photocall and was vivid at a premiere in a hot pink and orange Jil Sander dress. We love that Cate’s not afraid to experiment even while expecting her third child. And we can’t wait to see what she wears next — just imagine her maternity gown for the Oscars next February! Tell us: What do you think of Cate’s maternity style?

I love Cate, she is very humble and beautiful..I really wish her well and hope she has a great pregnancy….She usually wear things that flatters her body, so i am pretty confident she will pull something amazing off…kudooos to you Cate!!! Rock On!!!

although i’m not approved of some of the dress she wears, she’s still one of the most elegant celebs around (and without a doubt the most talented actress, apart from meryl streep of course!).

Oh my, and remember what she wore to [Letterman]? She was already at least a month pregnant!

THAT takes some serious guts. Power to her!

I think Cate is a brilliant actress, and so beautiful, but I’m not liking this style at all on her. I understand that’s she pregnant and wants to be comfy, but I’ve seen other pregnant celeb ladies dress much better.

What is up with that sorbet color dress? She shouldn’t be dressing like a frozen dessert. The dress would have looked perfect if it were pink, and Cate would have looked more radiant.

That colorblock dress is just plain ugly, I don’t even know what to say, LOL. I’ve seen Cate dress much better.

Regardless though, congratulations to her and her husband on their 3rd child. Also, I’m looking forward to Cate’s dresses during the award season at the beginning of next year too {hopefully she’ll be there}, she always looks gorgeous, and she’ll look more radiant then ever while pregnant. Also, I don’t need to remind or mention, but I loved her in “Elizabeth: The Golden Age”, she was amazing in that movie.

um no…these are disgusting
