Look of the Day: Last Friday Cate Blanchett

Radiant Academy Award-winner Cate Blanchett broke the fashion mold with panache at last Friday’s “How to Train Your Dragon 2” screening at Cannes, France, in a multi-colored, bejeweled bodice and a chic black pleated floor length chiffon skirt, courtesy of Givenchy.

While the Cannes international film festival is a mainstay of va-va-voom ball gowns, Blanchett stayed ahead of the fashion pack with a bold look got her noticed for all the right reasons – sapphire chandelier Chopard earrings added a touch of class.

The colorful, tropical plume embellishments on the bust, taken from a fall-winter 2014 ready-to-wear look by Riccardo Tisci, also nicely mirrored the dragon-theme of Dreamworks’ latest animated picture, for which she lends her vocal talents.
