Cate Blanchett Nails The Lingerie Trend In Nude Lace Dress

Cate Blanchett is the lady of the hour. The Australian actress was at a gala thrown in her honour during the 51st New York Film Festival at Alice Tully Hall in New York City this week where she stunned in a nude Armani Prive gown.

Not only has her latest role in must-see movie Blue Jasmine has been tipped as Oscar-worthy, but Cate continues to be one of Hollywood's finest actresses. Last night's look was just flawless.

The lace off-the-shoulder dress and Roger Vivier shoes worked perfectly with Cate's porcelain skin tone as did the stand out scarlet lipstick - the word is ethereal. And p.s THIS is why the lingerie/negligee trend is a thing.


She's just classic (almost old-school Hollywood) always getting her red carpet ensemble just right.

This lace gown from Armani Prive's Autumn/Winter 2013 collection is seriously sexy-making (the plunging neckline and spaghetti straps) but Cate carries it in an understated style. Minimal accessories, maximum effect.

The sleek down do (middle parted, naturally) tucked gently behind her ears and that statement red lippy? So easy to get the look - check out our top 10 red lipsticks in the gallery below...
