Cate Blanchett and More Dazzle at Armani Prive Haute Couture!

Splash News online

While the venue for the Armani Prive Haute Couture Autumn/Winter show, the Palais de Chaillot overlooking the Eiffel Tower, is stunning and busy outside, inside the scene is slightly more serene. Anne Hathaway takes to her seat looking like a princess in a silver satin bubble hem dress under a chic white trench-coat while Cate Blanchett is the last to arrive looking every bit the Hollywood star in a high neck black dress and towering patent heels. “It’s timeless, it’s classic — and I’m really excited about the few little whispers I’ve heard about this,” she tells PEOPLE as numerous bodyguards usher her in so the show can began. A whirlwind display of voluminous skirts in metallic shades, structured satin dresses and the finale diamante-encrusted ball gown leave some so in awe they burst into applause during the show. As celebs are led backstage to greet the designer post-show, stylist Rachel Zoe stops to tell me her pick of the couture candy: “My favorite would be the feather coat. It was brown with a million little feathers, and it was like a coat dress kind of thing, it was beautiful.” As Mr Armani leaves with a wave and a smile for the cameras, everyone inside continues to celebrate in his glory, with champagne and Italian canapes, of course.

I just checked out the Armani Prive collection and it was amazing. Even without knowing, I knew that Cate Blanchett would be there.

I love Cate Blanchett because even though she isn’t the most beautiful actress out there, she always looks really stylish, classy, etc. and always chooses good movies to act in. I think it’s lame when actors/actresses star in lame movies just for a little extra money. To my knowledge Cate has never done this and that’s another thing I like about her.
