Cate Blanchett Cannes Honor McQueen

Cate Blanchett Cannes Honor McQueen

Cate Blanchett hits the red carpet at the premiere of her new movie, Robin Hood, held at the Palais des Festivals during the 2010 Cannes Film Festival on Wednesday (May 12) in Cannes, France.

The 40-year-old Aussie access wore a dress by the late Lee Alexander McQueen, which he had personally selected for the actress. It features a silver eagle in flight!

Fellow Aussie Russell Crowe wore a black one-button shawl collar microfiber Giorgio Armani tuxedo. His wife Danielle Spencer will also wear a Giorgio Armani Privé white silk plisse halter evening gown.

10+ pictures inside of Cate Blanchett at a Cannes premiere…

    Ravissante Cate !

  • Trin

    Cate Blanchett is absolutely stunning. I love her. She is talented. The best. I love her movies.

    Wonderful dress. Cate is the Queen of the red carpet. Definitly.

  • jo

    She brings class, talent, strength and intelligence to the table and is the antithesis of realty ‘stars’ like Kate Gosselin. Cate IS worth the mlllions she’ s paid and pays it forward (without the need to make a PR event out of it). Some other wannabes should take note.

  • jb

    So beautiful. I miss Alexander McQueen and his talent.

  • Jen

    This McQueen looks incredible on Cate! The other frilly dresses are looking like typical boring Oscar fare, this dress actually stands out & is unique! I love this look!! Cate is a fashion icon for all to bow down to!!!

  • fresh

    A true movie star. More of her and less reality show losers.

  • Trin

    Cate is The Queen of the Red Carpet. A goddess.

  • Alaia

    She has the greatest red carpet style (except for when she wears too much Armani Privé too much). She always knows how to stand out amongst the boring prom dresses (I’m looking at you Kate Boringsale and Eva Longboria).

  • mouche

    Cate is fabulous in that fantastic Alexander McQueen gown, really magnificent!

  • Belize

    Cate looks stunning! She is stylish and has got loads of charisma.
    Quite different from Crowe and his wife, who both look like they don’t belong there. His wife is too skinny for that Armani gown and he should have left his sunglasses at home.

  • III

    I love the way she always carries herself

  • The details

    Lovely gown! But her face has the waxy botox look and she should have touched up her dark roots. Over confident or lack of preparation. The gown deserves a complete look, not just a casual attempt. B-

    @The details
    If that is a B-, then you are probably a Z-.

    Love Kate, one of the rare few ladies of this business. Looks brilliant!

  • KC

    Simply stated Cate Blanchett is class!

  • EB


  • YvetteW

    Wow.What a fantastic statement dress! Too bad she can’t ever wear it again.

  • yo sista

    EWWWWW at the dress!

  • martha

    Russell and Dani look stunning in Armani. A beautiful couple.

  • seabee

    Another hideous dress by the late king of bad taste in costumes who the all the glam sheeple wore at their own humiliation. So ridiculous that he and Stella McCarthy are the standard bearers of British fashion when they both suck.

  • Ronda

    That dress is stunning! and she looks beautiful in it.

  • jorge

    Another boring dress.

  • lylian

    Glad to see Cate Blanchett wearing a gown that honours the late Mcqueen. I hope it makes Mcqueen’s family and friends who love him happy.

  • eclipse

    met her in berlin. got a photo with her. she´s so nice^^

  • mailey

    this dress is BANGIN. she never does wrong.

  • fashionisboring

    Whether you think it’s “pretty” or not, McQueen’s dress is absolutely original. It’s not merely a lazy, carbon-copy of vintage like every other formal dress these days. I seriously question whether designers have any imagination anymore. I went from being a devoted follower of fashion to being completely bored by it.
