Cate Blanchett Stuns In Intricate Sequined Dress At Santa Barbara Film Festival

We love a sequined frock. And it would appear Cate Blanchett does too because she pitched up at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival in this glitzy little number.

And it was smiles all round for the actress, who picked up the award for Outstanding Performer of the Year for her work in Blue Jasmine.


The 44-year-old's dress was made up of a panels which featured a pattern of pink, white and peach coloured sequins separated by rhinestones. The dress also features clasps across her chest, revealing a little skin.

She finished off her look with a pair of silver heels and for the beauty she opted for a pink lip and pink blush on her cheeks.


It's the second glitzy frock Cate's worn in a matter of days. The Oscar-nominated star wore a dazzling burgundy and gold sequin-covered gown by Givenchy at the 3rd Annual Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Awards Ceremony in Sydney (Australia's answer to the Oscars, in case you wondered).

Cate is hotly tipped to win a Best Actress Oscar for her role in Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine.

More Cate?
