Cate Blanchett makes an elegant statement in black on her latest red carpet appearance. The ‘Ocean’s Eight’ actress was spotted in a chic gown on the carpet at the 47th Chaplin Awards Gala in New York City last night.
The gala honored Blanchett and her filmography and featured speakers such as Bradley Cooper and Todd Haynes. The Chaplin Award Gala is a fundraising event for Film at Lincoln Center that helps support the organization’s work to increase awareness, accessibility and understanding of the art of cinema.
Blanchett donned a black floor-length dress that featured a shimmering black asymmetric cape that had black, shiny and gold buttons down the shoulder for a pretty glittery touch. The skirt of the dress is made of velvet and has a slightly dramatic train that adds volume.
Floor-length dresses, suitable for formal occasions, are often made from fabrics such as satin, chiffon, or organza to add to the overall feel of the dress. Floor-sweeping dresses can have a variety of silhouettes and necklines, making the style essential for formal weddings, red carpet events, and elegant occasions.
As an accessory, Blanchett wore a pair of diamond-encrusted drop earrings for a polished finish.
Though her shoes were obscured by the billowing hem of her dress, it’s safe to say that Blanchett wore a pair of pumps or sandals that went well with her streamlined attire.
Blanchett has also made a name for herself in the fashion industry, having starred in campaigns for brands such as Giorgio Armani for the brand’s fragrance line.
