Blondes In Blue Dresses: Cate Blanchett vs. Kate Winslet

01/08/2007 at 12:57 PM ET

Two accomplished actresses, two Golden Globe nominees, two stunning blue dresses but two totally different styles — Cate Blanchett and Kate Winslet hooked up on the red carpet at the 18th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival this weekend in coordinating cobalt stunners that showcased their individual looks. Always on the cutting edge of fashion, Blanchett arrived in a futuristic blue Balenciaga dress with sharp angles and patent leather insets. Winslet, on the other hand, went for simple elegance, wearing a figure-skimming Valentino gown with soft curls and minimal jewelry. We love that both actresses have such signature styles, but we can’t help but compare the two frocks. Tell us: Which dress do you like better? Cate’s futuristic sheath or Kate’s classic gown?

The dresses are lovely, their hair looks great and neither one appears to be wearing gobs of makeup. Love them both, they look fabulous and classy!


Kate Winslet’s dress is nicer. It’s simple and beautiful. Cate Blanchette looks nice too, but her dress looks a little plasticy leathery…

Absolutely gorgeous – both of them look great in such vivid colors. I personally prefer Kate’s elegant dress, but they both look lovely.
