An All–Cate Blanchett, All-Cannes 2018 Red Carpet Extravaganza!



Jury president Cate Blanchett ruled the French film fest in a never-ending series of sensational Chopard sparklers

cate blanchett in silvery white armani at 2018 cannesHow do we love Cate Blanchett? Let us count the ways. We could hardly keep track of all the fabulous couture she wore at Cannes, from the black lace Armani Privé at the opening ceremony (recycled from the 2014 Golden Globes, to show her support for sustainable fashion) to the black-and-white-and-beaded-all-over Mary Katrantzou bubble-hem dress at the Cold War screening to this shimmery silvery-white Giorgio Armani column gown at the Trophée Chopard celebration. Through it all, she wore a stunning (and unexpectedly bold) selection of jewels from longtime festival sponsor Chopard. Magnifique!
