Style File: Cate Blanchett Continues to Quietly Ace the Dubai International Film Festival Red Carpet

Posted on December 08, 2017

We had a discussion on the podcast today about the future of the red carpet post-Weinstein and declared that a new age of classic elegance was upon us, as the plunging necklines and panty-baring gowns of the past few years fade away and High Glamour takes a short break for a while.

Here comes Cate, proving us half-wrong.

Here’s the Classic Elegance Cate Blanchett Fashion Doll. It’s not Vogue-cover fabulous or best-of-the-week stylish, but it’s pretty and photogenic. We’d quibble over the shape of the skirt of the pairing of that top with it, but the overall effect is lovely enough to shut our mouths.

Next up, the Cate Who Won’t Stop Being Glam Fashion Doll:

And to be quite frank, we’ve got no problem with any of this. The rest of the red carpet ladies may be eschewing Big Hollywood Glamour, but Cate’s not about to give it up. The skirt looks too heavy and the neckline could do with a little closing up, but this looks great – all the more surprising that it’s Louis Vuitton, considering how bad LV looks on the red carpet lately. Trust Miss Cate to snag herself a good one. We’re not crazy about stars making Dubai a stop on their promo tours, even if they do have a film festival. The human rights record is no joke.
