Cate Blanchett's Tribute to Alexander McQueen

When Cate Blanchett lit up the Riviera red carpet on the first night of the Cannes Film Festival, she did more than help promote her new movie Robin Hood. The Aussie Oscar-winner wore an Alexander McQueen dress in her own special mark of appreciation of the late fashion designer, who died on February 11. The ankle-length black eagle print Jacquard dress with white tulle details
is from the Pre-Fall 2010 collection and was picked out by McQueen specially for the actress. “The dress had been selected and personally chosen by Mr. McQueen and his team for Ms. Blanchett,” a spokeswoman tells PEOPLE. “It was specifically tailored for Ms. Blanchett.” Her movie, in which she gets to shoot arrows in custom-made Roger Vivier riding boots as Lady Marion, was picked as the big name opener for the festival on the French south coast. We can’t think of a better way to honor the late Lee McQueen than on the glamorous red carpet at Cannes. –By Simon Perry and Dana Kennedy
