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?

I love Cate’s two-toned dress better, it is more modern and wearable. I also love the shoes but Kate’s dress is a beautiful colour and catches the eye… both are stunning.

I Like Cate Blanchett, she a beautiful woman and what’s more important she’s one of the best actresses of our time, but Kate Winslet is simply the BEST in everything!. She’s the best actress, she’s a very humble person which I think is very important, she’s the most beautiful (no matter what dress she’s wearing), she’s…everything I can’t find the words to describe her so, with all this, I think it’s pretty obvious which one I prefer…
