Cate Blanchett looked absolutely radiant in head to toe sequins at last night’s Australian Academy Cinema Television Arts awards held in Sydney. Shying from her customary classic and sophisticated style and not usually one to flash the flesh, the Aussie actress’ floor length Givenchy gown complimented her statuesque figure perfectly and we have to say she rocked the plunging neckline and cut out sides with pure class. Diverting from the usual silver and pink sequins so often seen at red carpet events Cate opted for chocolate brown and gold with leather accents; a more controversial choice but with just as much glam and she certainly pulled it off. As Cate proves, a sequinned floor length gown is the ultimate party piece and will have you stealing the show for all the right reasons. This Forever Unique Celine Dress, £250 will have you dazzling in rose gold embellishment, and its sweetheart neckline and cinched waist will create an enviable silhouette like Ms Blanchett’s. If you prefer silver sequins to gold but still want the same seductive appeal as Cate, then the Aftershock London Tera Dress, £299 will have you subtly shimmering but stunning all the same with its daring cut out back. Go for a classic elegant up do like Cate has and let your dress do all the talking.
