Predict-a-Gown: What Will Cate Blanchett Wear on the Red Carpet?

01/26/2007 at 01:55 PM ET

Cate Blanchett has red carpet fashion-watchers buzzing with her high-profile appearance, alongside Katie Holmes, at the Armani Prive show last night in Paris — does this mean that the SAG and Oscar-nominated actress is selecting one of Giorgio Armani’s elaborate couture creations, like this beaded grey silk gown, to wear to an award show? Or is she really in Paris to pick from another one of the couture collections showing this week? Let the speculation begin! Will she make the ultimate red carpet entrance in this dramatic Christian Dior? Will she signal “serious actress” in this moody Givenchy? Or will she go for bold color, as she did in 2005 in her yellow Valentino, in this canary chiffon Lacroix? Metallics also look great against Cate’s pale complexion, so why not this shimmering Elie Saab or this platinum beaded Chanel gown? One thing we can count is that this is one actress who isn’t afraid to make a major statement!

With all the questionable choices she’s made lately, she’s overdo for a stunning gown. She would stun in the Givenchy, unfortunately, this woman’s style pendulum swings so far to both extremes, something ridiculous like the Dior wouldn’t suprise me. I forgive all of her missteps, though, because when Cate gets it right, she is sublime!

I just love Cate Blanchett, great actress, great style. I think she’ll be in something like understated Versace (if there is such a thing) or Valentino, who in my opinion can do wrong. I think she would look both feminine and mordern in a piece of his line. PS whats with that funky model in the pic next to her??? Maybe it was a bad camera angle, but I just want to hand her a cupcake or meatball sub or something.

Cate is the meaning of style, she looks great in any gown and she has so much class. She needs to advise Katie Holmes with some advice.

she’ll stand out in a classy, elegant way no matter which gown she chooses. i’d love to see her in the armani above or the elie saab…

That Grey beaded silk gown would look great on her,and that yellow valentino dress she wore was a nice choice to. She has wore some interesting outfits, but I think she’ll make a good choice

Sammy on

That Chanel dress is just plain ugly.

Most of those dresses aren’t art deco enough for Cate, which is what I like about her. The Dior dress would most be along the lines of what she might pick but it would have to be changed a little so she could walk down the red carpet. I think she should go with red though. Anything she does will be fantastic

Cate is going to wear what Cate likes, and people are either going to love it or be on the fence. Even Cate’s choices that are “questionable” are still avant garde, couture styles. I happened to think she dresses properly for body type and skin tone and I appreciate her style. Some of the items she wears I wouldnt’ be caught dead in, and the seem to look right on her. Whatever she wears we will remember it for years to come.
